These days people throw the term carebear around to mean
ANYTHING derotagory. Want to craft? You're a carebear! Don't want to play an mmorpg
like a first person shooter? You're a carebear! Don't like to play the game
like I play the game
? You're a carebear!
The term carebear has become mangled
and meaningless. But it used to mean
something important to hardcore
Examples of the ORIGINAL term are:
No full loot was "carebear"
Safe zones were "carebear"
on who you can attack
and where you can attack
them were "carebear."
on freedom in general were "carebear."
Instances were "carebear."
Carebears were people who wanted devs to develop/change games to make their gaming
experience easy, safe, and cozy
. No risk, no challenge, no realism. Cozy
like a carebear.
