I make my own statics for raids and do the content. I cannot be bothered with the community at large, massive free companies and guargantuan discord servers. I'm here to play a video game.I just watch the vibe I put out there. For me, if I seem like I just want to play video games and not put up with personal shenanigans, the players who are too off-base won't bother me. Birds of a feather flock together as it were. In my case I just got an invite from strangers while out on some quests and over the weeks it turned out to be a fit. If not then I just would've left. There are people I know of who play this game that I would prefer to avoid, and the nice thing about this is that I don't have to put up with people. If I don't want to know them or their business, I don't have to interact with them. I can carve out my own little experience.
Raiding is getting annoying. Every tier for the past 3 expansions dealing with parse warriors throwing shit at you because they need to do this exact strategy to ensure they get the best score possible on a website called fflogs.
Had a melee DPS player in the first tier of this expansion who wanted to replicate an exact rotation off a spreadsheet from raiding discords. They got passive aggressive with other players, claiming they were getting "cucked" by the group. Group had DPS far above what was needed to clear the raid encounter.
I want to play the video game, not jerk off some autist so he can brag to other discord autists.
On that note, I have no idea what to advertise a static as these days. It seems too many people want to be high performing esports-level raiders.
