@LapisWave Yet there are a lot of people who fit in this category sadly. If you aren't one of them,the great and keep on going on. But meanwhile you cannot blame people to be sour at your community for the harm they have done us.
Considering how I am running the community for this game, and I've made my share in my own discord about how I felt about RP community in general, I personally do feel that we RP community ourselves are diverse and try to separate from the bad eggs as much as possible. I've had my own share same as yours in FF14 where I've pugged with couple of those who decided to RP and take their time when I asked them to do it in their own appropriate time or make premade fully instead of Duty Finding it, they refused and told me to leave. So I told them to boot me out to reduce my duty cooldown and they did do so. And people like these are indefinitely rude, and your poor experience was on point.
I didn't talk too much about it in this thread because your argument and reasoning is something to hear about to us roleplayers because it is very important that we roleplayers should try not to inconvenient other players who just want to play the game, and we should do things at our own time, privately if we need to.
At first, I was a bit intimidated by your post because I assumed your statement was in general at public areas where it should not have affected you greatly, but I see what you mean when you are actually doing dungeons / raids and people doing that is very selfish and inconvenient, and unaccommodating for others who do not want that. And I totally respect and understand your point. I feel the same as you, and which is why I didn't pursue arguing with you about it.
I also run another non-roleplay general gameplay discord for everyone to join, and everyone makes fun of RP in there and I just laugh it along because it's really something I am just used to. When people assume RP, it's always comes along as "bad players who do nothing but cybering or dont care about the game" and, it's only half true, and most players don't know some of us roleplayers also dislike those kinds.
Anyways, no matter what some of us say "I am not that kind of person", but in the end, it really depends on who you meet. If you want to enjoy doing runs, feel free to seek me out in Ship 3.
