I dont know why but I get really frustrated with people claiming that they have been huge monhun fans now that World has been a success. I try to disassociate with gamer and fandom identities but damn does this annoy me. Suddenly everyone is a MH veteran and people I've known for years and have never mentioned playing mh before are now long-time fans. I don't get it. I dont really care to claim to be a "veteran", I've been playing on and off for some some years now but I fuck up my hunts from time to time.
Even in 4U people were more respectful towards other players, I dont remember this elitist approach being dominant in the community. Becoming competitive would be the last thing I would want from this franchise.
