Believe it or not but there are people willing to learn. People attitudes is what is killin HA. If the hail almighty ranked people would step off their rank emotes and take the time to teach people there would probably be more people than what is there now.
I'm sure 2 years ago it was a hellva lot easier to get a group than it is today and the only ones to blame is that players. Everyone can blame anet all they want but until the player base realizes and rude and hateful they are, no new people are gonna step foot in there.
And i really appreciate what mmorpg man is tryin to do. If everyone was this way then there might be more people in HA.
