    I just can't stand Rytlock's whiney, aggressive tone any longer.

    As opposed to your own whiney, aggressive post?

    Do you have any particular moments or quotes from rytlock that rubbed you the wrong way? I liked rytlock as a character with a chip on his shoulder and a direct way of handling things, and I don't think he's ever deviated from that. Besides, with rytlock gone, who's logan gonna bro it up with?

    Many. His constant whining is too much to collect and quote. He is also disrespectful (see Kormir, for instance) and generally behaves like an [kitten] rather than an adult Charr. It has been toned down these past couple of releases, I have to admit that - but for years he has been going on my nerves. And that voice! Ugh. The constant exhales at the end of each little phrase, like everything around him was annoying him to death. As I said: a whiner.

    Aggressive against Rytlock? Yes. Whiney? Well, when you have to repeat yourself a million times, you can start sounding whiney. ;)

    If you want to offer constructive criticism, you should support your argument with examples and offer insight as to what exactly is wrong with those instances.

    Why should rytlock be respectful to kormir? The charr destroyed their gods and hold no respect for them, and rytlock is a fairly typical charr. In this scene, I think he offers a fairly interesting alternate perspective on the interaction between kormir and the heroes. on one side kasmeer is almost falling over herself in the presence of a god, and on the other, rytlock balances it out with his disdain.

    Honestly his reaction to Kormir made me like him more.

    I don't mind Rytlock but that's about as much Char as I can handle. I cant stand their dialog and the whole steel aesthetic isn't my favorite so this saga being heavily char focused hasn't been all that exciting to me.

    This thread is a bizarre one—it shows that despite everything, there are still old-guard Ascalon obsessives who loathe the charr for no good reason, who believe that all charr should be beholden to their desires or put through a painful genocide. Why is this so?

    Why not simply let the charr be their own people? Yes, they've had their problems—much as any race has—but the recent storyline has been dealing with just that, ousting their toxic leadership and challenging problematic old traditions. It's also shown us the Olmakhan, a charr culture from before the Six's incursion into Tyria. There's clearly, obviously room for the charr to grow and evolve.

    I will say, up front, that I'm not a fan of fantastic racism embodied by players. It often comes off as too passionate, to the point where it feels like it's based off of other, more real bigotries. To reiterate: I'm not a fan. There is no logical, rational reason to single out the charr, there is no sensible reason to do so, there is no valid reason to do so. This all derives from what happened in a game released over a decade and a half ago.

    Can we lay it to rest? There's something that I value called empathy. It's nice, empathy. It means that you can accept differences and appreciate that people like different things. I play charr, do I hate humans? No. Do I hate any of the races? No. In fact, more recent developments have only continued to endear the majority of Tyria's races to me. I enjoy their presence. There's no need for animosity.

    The way this is going down? It's almost like the charr were responsible for something terrible that happened in our world—they weren't. Tyria is a fiction, a narrative, it wasn't and isn't real. It was written by humans situated within our phase, our reality. A lot of them, a vast number of different ones, all bringing their own ideas, beliefs, perspectives, and nuances to the story. The world changes and so must you. It's folly to hold these ancient grudges.

    No matter how you feel about the charr—people do play them and they enjoy doing so. By going on like this, all you're doing is making charr players miserable. If you do have any empathy, understand that this is all best put to rest. Charr players are tired of hearing all this. It is best put to rest.

    (It's really something when you actually feel you have to point out that the charr narrative is written by humans, and not giant-hyena cats sitting at mountains of broken keyboards because giant claws.)

    if tyria are to survive, all charr must die. why would ANYONE want to help them after their latest exploits?
    helping them is like giving donations to the kitten party.
