Do you even play P99? 2,000 posts....looks like you are just playing the forum warrior game. Sad. The people getting the XP in DN typically just go AFK, so the boxing accusations just seem kind of desperate. I understand that might be a hard concept for you to understand since nobody likes you.
Calling someone sad while whining on the forums at 4 AM about your terrible RnF thread failing lol

This is the same idiot that dumped DKP to put the server first Essence Mace on his bard.

I dont know about everyone else that reads these posts but i am getting so sick and tired of RANGERS pissing and moaning about all the weapons they cant use....Not often do you see a rogue or a warrior post about what weapons they cant use....They always look for the good ones they CAN use. Besides that about .00001% of the people that see any of these posts will ever even know someone who knows someone who has see an essence lens. Just my little rant on pissing and maoning RANGERS

If you think about it, no player was trained as the afk character wasn’t being played. Not even a pnp violation.

There's no real clear definition of what an ARMY Ranger actually is. I met a lot of guys who have Ranger scrolls and no Ranger tabs, and a lot of guys who have Ranger Tabs, but no Ranger scroll.

I'm personally not impressed by Rangers or Ranger school. You don't actually do anything special to get into a Ranger battalion, the decision is made at MEPS before you even go to basic training. And Ranger school is essentially a school for officers, and if you're in the back of the line on day 1, you automatically fail the PT test since they will meet their quota long before it's your turn.

Even the Battalion is pretty gay, and isn't elite. For instance, you could be the most badass E-4 in the entire ARMY, and a Ranger battalion won't take you because you're too experienced to be brainwashed. My platoon sergeant, who is literally the most badass sniper I ever met, and actually is what Chris Kyle pretended to be got kicked out of a Ranger batt as a private because they caught him chewing bubble gum.

Gay.

Also I want to add that the standards for all ARMY schools have deteriorated dramatically from when I went in. When I went to sniper school, it had one of the highest attrition rates, higher than Ranger school for it's respective time period. And they don't just send a kid to sniper school, they literally have try-outs for a sniper platoon, and when they hand pick the best soldiers they have for the position, they spend months training him, preparing him for sniper school. You don't MAKE your Ghillie suit in Sniper school, you make it at your unit, long before you go to the school.

Despite all of this effort, the failure rate in sniper school was still huge.

Flash forward to now, my friends who stayed in, most of which were admittedly terrible soldiers but super like-able, sociable guys, which is why I still talk to them to this day. Almost all of them are now sniper qualified because they essentially made the school accessible to anyone, and made it to where you can no longer fail.

We even had a soldier (who again, I'm still friends with), who was so bad that everyone wanted to have him chaptered out of the Military. Even though we were friends with the guy, we recognized that he brought the unit down and was a liability to have in our unit. He never met the standard for anything, wrecked a humvee on an interstate after getting super drunk, causing massive collateral damage to civilian vehicles, lost his rifle, had negligent discharges, pissed hot for drugs 24/7. He was just a terrible soldier.

This same kid later became Special Forces. Not because he suddenly turned his life around, but rather because the standards got reduced dramatically, and they desperately needed more African Americans to meet their quota.

Hey, if you can jump out of a helicopter or airplane into the bush, get lost, disappear, not exist, be forgotten about, whatever, and go a month without eating MREs and only maybe bugs, chewing leaves into saliva goop. And maybe find your way back out to someone u can get a ride to the airport from and come home. You're pretty alright in my book. That's pretty cool.

Hey OP, if you see big scary monsters running at you, it's a good idea to run away.

Hope this helps.
