The female gamer population is straight up amazing now. I can't even begin to tell you how many ladies I know that keep up in the dps, and heals when I played WoW. Haven't met many female tanks but I'm sure they are out there. Then again I haven't hit up an MMO in awhile...
I usually play DPS because I prefer classes with speed and agility. Tanks can be fun, but I find it gets boring being a meat shield after a while.

One of my best friends is friggan amazing at halo. People are often surprised to discover she is female lol She's also freakishly good at tetris. Seriously, I've NEVER seen anyone play as well as she O_o

People don't even realize I'm a nerd until I say something nerdy, then I get, "Wow, I NEVER would have thought you were a nerd/geek/gamer/etc!!"

That's funny, because when I was still playing WoW the girls in our guild were useless turds, them and their boyfriends.

Edit - I pressed enter too soon it seems.

I just find that my experience with girls and video games has been limited or unknown. I'm sure I played with skilled girls, I just don't know because I also notice that skilled girls also don't like telling people they are girls. I don't blame them, speak once in Vent and the white knights line up.

My aforementioned friend rarely talks much when she's playing halo online. She hates being flirted with, babied, or picked on because the other players discover her gender. Can't say I blame her.

There was one time on Lord of the Rings online, one of my low level kin members was in a group trying to get through a really hard quest, and they kept failing. He was whining about it on the kin chat, so I offered to run them through it since I was just farming for mats anyway.
So I meet up with them and we all get on Vent, and the group instantly starts to doubt my capabilities because they discovered I was a girl. So they decided not to listen to me, and they continued to get slaughtered. Finally after several failed attempts and a good hour of me waiting around for them to run back from the res point, my kin mate told the morons just to listen to me, and I guess they finally figured it was worth giving me a chance. I ran them through the dungeon in about 10 minutes with no casualties whatsoever, and after they were all like, "thank you sooooo much!!! You're awesome!!" and they all tried to add me to their friends list. I guess they realized I did know what I was doing, and wanted to keep me around in case they needed help again. I told them all to fuck off.
So yeah. I pretty much avoid voice chat unless it's with my kin or friends.

Naw... admittedly I run into female healers more then anything... but man when I run into a girl dps she can be just as cut throat...

*shudders at maniacal laughter of being camped by female blood elves*

I love being a tank but I kinda stink at it too... -.- I try real hard but apparently I was too into roleplaying and looking cool... not realizing that choices that made sense in D&D didn't translate the same as an MMO -.-

Oh well I've stopped playing online games and lost 68lbs and started cosplaying. It seems pretty win to me.

Back on topic though... I think the only compliment I didn't like was one I received while working at a prison...

"You could be my Red Ranger" that came from an inmate who I honestly did not want to hear I was their hero... -.-

LOL!

i played dps/tank back when i was playing wow. i picked up cata but lost interest as soon as i was ready to start raiding again. i honestly just don't want to play when it starts to feel like a job, and if you're a tank or healer it is a job but when you're dps you get left out because someone else wants to go and they are personal friends of so-and-so who's an officer... ugh

one night everyone in vent started posting photos of themselves, so i joined in. they didn't believe it was me until i actually said something, and then it was "OMG she really is a girl!". i swear vent had never been so quiet after that, but the whispers were rolling in so fast ingame that i couldn't keep up


i generally don't get bent out of shape too much when people give me what i call "underhanded complements", or complements that are really insults in disguise. something along the lines of "you make a great guy, for a girl" (which could be taken as i'm not very feminine-looking, it's something i hear on a regular basis) will generally get a cheerful "wow thanks!" from me. i usually get embarrassed when someone offers genuine flattery

As a kid, I hated being belittled as an older character in cosplay, "aww you're cute" wasn't always nice. I don't mind at all now, but as a kid (like most kids) you don't want to look too young for older characters.

(as for wow chat; warrior tanking now is the best fun, teddy tank and pally is just meat shields. Warrior, priest, rogues <3 Though I haven't played since the xpack.)

"Oooh, you get to eat whatever you want and not gain a pound, you have a nice skinny figure".

Urgh, I hate being skinny, I just want to throttle the next person who says that because I went through hard times with my weight for many years.

This was actually a compliment (?) from my friend after she met the boy I was dating. "Oh he's cute, for an Asian." o_o

People keep telling me I have broad shoulders. I guess it's not really an insult, but I can't see how it's supposed to be a compliment (plus it makes crossplay rather difficult).

I hate it when people say, "Wow, you're really tall!" Yes, I like being tall, but I don't see why it's so special that you have to comment on it. Or why it's even considered a compliment in the first place... I mean, it's okay to comment on someone being tall, but HEAVEN FORBID you tell someone, "Wow, you're really short!"

This. So much. I still don't get it. Can someone explain it to me without it sounded like a backhanded compliment? lol

That one too.

"You're good at programming stuff, for a girl." Really? Did you have to add that last bit after the comma? Couldn't you have just left it off?


And another one that others have said: "Don't take offense to this, but..."

Well I know you're going to say something that will probably offend me. So why say it? lol Though that's not really a compliment. >.>

This is relating back to the 'Hey Baby' thing from page one I forgot to mutli-quote with this and I am too lazy to go back to:

It's cute and silly when Boyfriend does it.

It's creepy and sleazy when random guy at A-Cen does it.

I still wonder who the hell pat my ass that one day...


Considering I've been going for 'cute cosplay' for some time I am pleased with that comment xD but when I've cosplayed older characters they've been on the sexier side and I just get guys taking pictures of my boobage.

Which is perfectly fine and expected by me in the first place.

EDIT:
HA I remembered the one comment I got when cosplaying Motoko
I had been walking down part of the hall that was pretty empty but just me and my friend and some random con staff. There's this guy leaning against the wall on the opposite side of the hall, who as soon as I walk past him loudly shouts: "Damn look at those big, bouncing titties!"

At the time I was mortified, but now I just have to laugh about it.

funny enough I get people who comment on my shortness as making me cuter somehow..?
