[2chers respond] Japanese players create lines inside of an MMORPG

2chan responds to the English-speaking internet

English blog, Sankaku Complex, posted a translation of a 2chan thread discussing lines forming inside of an MMORPG.

The screenshots posted in the thread show virtual characters – each of which represents an actual player somewhere in the world – lining up in a virtual world. They are lining up in order to encounter a rare event that players must experience in order to progress in the game or for obtaining precious items.

The English-speaking commenters on Sankaku respond predictably with ridicule and disbelief.

The 2chan response

KoollKat: Waist money and time on queueing in a *game*?.. That’s odd.
2chan: Playing games is a waste of money and time already
2chan: I get excited in a line when it’s almost my turn
2chan: Online games are reality
2chan: Japan is a country where if you line up, you are guaranteed happiness. That’s why everyone lines up. Otherwise, we wouldn’t line up. Understand the difference in society.
2chan: Queuing is a virtue. But why do we have to queue to battle a monster? Just let us fight lol
2chan: The fun of online games is chatting. So it’s probably really fun just lining up and chatting with the guy behind you in line.
2chan: No, it’s silent on the line.
2chan: If we line up, we’re guaranteed to be able to play. If we cut the line, people will whisper about me later on. Also, I might not succeed in cutting. In the end, lining up is the most efficient option.
2chan: Don’t play such a game! lol
2chan: I’m playing games to enjoy myself. If I had to worry about people cutting in line, it wouldn’t be fun anymore.
2chan: This is ridiculous that we have to line up for monsters. They’re not monsters anymore, they’re just fish in a fishing ground.
2chan: This is a good article. Every time I see the lines forming in FF11, it brings a smile to my face. I had fun, those times I lined up with my friends.
2chan: If you have the time to be lining up in a game, line up at Hello Work (the employment office).
2chan: Don’t go there.
