I've been playing SM's (Strike Mission) for a few weeks now as a FB, running my own Minstrel's healing build you'd normally see in WvW squads and more recently a Diviner's boon support. Both builds I really enjoy and help the SM groups I join. I know how to play my profession very well and love it.
No matter how aware I am of how other professions are built and how I support them in a group setting, I understand my specific Role; it's difficult to be ridiculed for my builds I know are optimal for what they're meant to achieve support wise. I haven't a problem with a person's personal preference for their LFG. I take issue with me being mocked for builds that aren't Meta to a sub section of other players and I'm just expected to be dead weight- not worth understanding, not worth teaching, not worth a second thought. I hope ya'll can imagine that kind of attitude and how unhealthy it is.
What is this thread? Someone with bad experiences?
I don't really know. I'm just disappointed in ArenaNet when it comes down to my reasoning, it's just feedback for them.
If ya'll have rambling thoughts about your experience with SM's then feel free.
