The League of Monster SlayersWhat is it all about?
The concept of LoMS is a simple one: a group of like minded people getting together to have fun and socialize while playing an MMO in a non-elitist and friendly manner. LoMS began in The Secret World but will expand into other MMOs and it is important that this spirit is carried into all manifestations, be it called a cabal, a guild or whatever.
Freedom to Play as You Like
As a member of LoMS all that is expected of you is to be respectful towards your mates and to adhere to our code of conduct. You have the freedom to play as you like. You are not required to participate in any structured activities. You are not required to use team speak. You are not required to do anything you are not comfortable with.
Freedom to play as you like also means that you are free to start a normal/elite/nightmare dungeon group, a lair group, a raid, a mission group, signet mission team, work towards an achievement, hunt rare monsters, discover lore, or just relax in the Horned God and chat. Any member can put an event on the calendar. Any member can start a group for whatever tickles their fancy.
Elitism and You
Some members have voiced concerns about elitism in LoMS. These are legitimate concerns. Elitism violates the spirit of LoMS and we will always work to remain elitist-free.
So let’s talk clarification. What does LoMS consider to be elitist? While playing an MMO, bonds between players happen. We enjoy playing with each other and form friendships. Some of us are even friends outside of game. Other times, members may work together towards a common goal, such as figuring out a raid or a nightmare level dungeon. Members may find that they work well together or have good problem solving skills together. There is nothing wrong with this and should not be considered elitism.
Below are some examples of things you might hear that are not elitist, and some things that are elitist.
Things You Might Hear in LoMS
- I promised I would save this dungeon/mission/raid for XYZ.
- I’m sorry, we already have two nm beginners on the team. I don’t think we can do it with another. Another time?
- This is a really tough nm dungeon. We’re still trying to figure it out. I would like to bring along a more advanced player until we master it.
- I don’t play with noobs.
- 4k AR required.
- Your gear is not good enough.
