I am finally leaving the game I like the most simply because of one player. In my entire time here going back to 2012, I have never known such a player who is as conceited, self-centred and whatever else; as Its John. I joined an alliance recently (thanks to Its John strangely enough) and that is where things started to happen.
Being an English player who lives in France, you can imagine the sort of abuse I received from the other alliance members, or the typical racial stereotype, and including my children in that too as they are French. When I say "abuse", it is in actual fact banter as, a great many of you know, is a form of wind up, non-intended to hurt anyone and if the target of the banter laughs with you, then all the better. Again, I laughed with the others because life is short and it is great, since it creates a real funny atmosphere. Everyone is taking the mickey and that is the way it should be.
However, there is always one out of many millions who is stuck up, uptight or what have you. Its John is one of those. Indeed, he is a great player (it helps that he has bought millions of rubies otherwise how would he explain everything that is ruby in all of his castles, and you cannot win that many rubies hitting towers so.....) however, he really is an uptight character. In the french language, he would be treated as "coincé du cul." To cut a long story short, I am a Manc, and he is from Liverpool so, we don't get on I guess. Secondly, I made a couple of references to Liverpool a couple of times just for a joke, and here is one I used last night and whether you find it funny I don't know. Please feel free to leave your comments...lol!
"If there is one thing certain in life, you can at least be relatively safe in Liverpool for 24 hours, knowing that Liverpool and Everton will be playing an FA cup final in London, thus there will be no-one....:-D "
All in all, players like Its John and his ilk need to just lighten up (again, I am not talking about his prowess in the game, he is a top-notch player.) I donated everything I had to the alliance I was with just before I was kicked and all because I had a bit of a laugh with someone who has the sense of humour of Lucretia Borgia....
