First topic message reminder :
I never remembered Tri's community being so abusive back when it first came out. I remember people helping one another and trying to improve together, but all that seems to be gone now.
I've recently been farming the Alatreon for Webbings, and within the last hour I've encountered at least 3 people who were just plain malicious.
1. Entered a city with two gunners, who appeared to be clusting. As soon as I joined I was told I had ten seconds to get ready for the quest, or they'd leave without me. Sure, we killed the Alatreon really quick and broke the wings, but it was not an enjoyable experience.
2. I entered a second city with a HR 600 or so gunner. I told him what I needed, and he set up an Alatreon quest for us both. We set out, and he killed the Alatreon in 3 seconds, and broke all areas without even firing a shot. I got some webbings in the rewards, but I sold them, since I want to earn my gear, and hacking for it is just wrong.
3. My final attempt was with another HR 600 gunner, who proceeded to spam "CLUST OR LEAVE!!!!!" at me as soon as I entered the city. As soon as she saw my sleepbombing set, she swore at me until I left. This one I found the most disturbing.
The Monster Hunter I know and love is groups of people working hard to make progress and get the items they want. I certainly don't want to play with a bunch of elitists and hackers who completely ruin the point of the game. What's happened to everyone? And have you ever met people like this?
*Also, is it possible for 2 clust gunners to kill an alatreon in 4 minutes? I want to know if my first two webbings are legit or not*
