    Hate Mail...bah. LOVE MAIL.

    To rid the interwebz world of hate-mail, we must all start sending love mail.

    BigTimeMaster and I were joking around with the concept of love mail in a different thread, and in order to prevent possible derailing, here is a thread about LOVE MAIL.

    Instead of complaining/sharing stories about hate mail, (Mostly sharing, because everyone LOVES hate mail winking ), why not share love mail?

    I often quote Dragonzball PeePee to lighten the mood, or send them a loving, appreciative message, full of sincerity. Or dripping with sarcasm, but that's Dark Souls.

    Share some potential (or otherwise) Love Mail!

    Example:
    "Thank you for standing afk in a corner with 99 humanity. I satisfied Kaathe with all that I was able to glean from you. I appreciate your charitable donation to the Darkwraiths; as we need more people like you in the world.

    -Love,
    A very happy Darkwraith"

    BIG TIME MASTER wrote: "Thank you for taking the time out of your day to play Dark Souls, and thus allowing me the exciting opportunity to test my skills against my fellow man in a manner that benefits us mutually. I am also glad that I was able to assist you in achieving whatever your recreational goals are in Dark Souls. I'd also like to say that I admire your skills and I am always available should you ever need assistance with anything. PLEASE, just ask. Well, it was nice spending some time with you, I wish you well and have a wonderful happy day!"

    If every PVPer sent a few LOVE messages each time they played, instead of a few hate messages, there just might not be anymore hate mail. And then we would be in wonderful paradise, hooray.


    Next time someone destroys you, let them know (non-sarcastically) how good of an opponent they are. If they are using newb tactics, just feign ignorance and ask them dummy questions about their super cool build. Most likely they will get all excited that somebody is contacting them for reasons other than hate mail.

    You see, love cancels hate, the way light cancels dark. If you walk into the woods at night with a lantern, the light will cancel out the dark around you, but the dark cannot cancel the light. Only the light can cancel itself out. Correlated, a message of love may prevent hate mail, or neutralize a bantering before it gets any momentum.

    Just to be clear, this doesn't count as LOVE mail:

    "Dear Dusk of Oolacile cosplay character,
    Roses are red,
    violets are blue,
    your crown is horny,
    as I am for you."



    Neither does this:

    "Dear Ninja flippin giant,
    Nothing turns me on like a guy with strong, broad shoulders,
    tight abs, and sexy gymnastic skills.
    Top that all off with a wonderful sense of humor (the mask),
    and your just the man for me. Call me."

    That's awesome. As you said, that is not love mail, that is troll mail.

    Dear Whatsyerface,

    That was an interesting tactic you employed by Backstabbing me while I was bowing. It has taught me to not drop my guard, and I will certainly be more conscious of this in the furute. Hopefully one day we will meet again and I can provide an appropriate and challanging enemy for you.

    With Love,
    The Chosen Undead

    Well, i already compliment people who have a good duel with me, but i am a tad bit of an *** if someone sends me hate mail. I suppose i'll come up with something.

    "Thank you for the wonderful duel, i am glad that i had the pleasure of battling you. If you require help with anything, do not waste a moment and ask me, i'll gladly help in any way i can. Cheers."

    I have once done something that could possibly be classified as love mail. I frequntly say to anyone who endured to a respectable end to our duel: "Well done, friend. have taught tactics I never before, and for that, I thank you." There are 2 possible outcomes of this for a reaction. The person responds to me, and we part ways with a smile, and the other, more common one, is either being ignored, or someone interprets it as sarcasm, and will respond with something like: "Yeah, great lagstabs you were doing." I honestly get quite angry at responses such as that, because I was just trying to be friendly. I think that, because of the sheer quantity of hate mail over love mail, anyone sees a complimentary message in a sarcastic, offensive manner.

    I only send out positive messages... usually a "GG" or "Good fight- thanks happy" or something similar... And whenever I summon somebody to fight a boss I send them a "Thanks- Praise the Sun!" message...

    Invaded some dude in an or londo saw him back stab a silver knight for 130 damage so I dropped him a uchi+15 and about 10 titanite chunks, I felt really sorry for the dude.

    I was in Anor Londo the other day and invaded a player as they were fighting the first Gargoyle. I watched as she danced around with a spear/grass crest shield with Garg helm. She wasn't doing great damage, and there I was in full Havel's with dragontooth. I backed off and let her finish the gargoyle and decided that I wasn't going to attack her, I dropped her a few souls, and ran towards the Painted Guardian/Ceiling Beams area and she followed. I wathced her fight the Painted Guards, and she was barely doing 100 DMG a hit, so I dropped her a Enchanted Uchi +5 and a Lightning Washing Pole +5 and then BSC'd back home.

    A few minutes later I got a message from her telling me that I am legendary and that she owes me.

    I simply said,

    "Not a problem ma'am. It's my job."

    Truth is, I wanted to crush her with my Dragontooth more than anything...

    I fought a guy once who was going nuts with a crossbow and pyromancy, it was really cool. Sent him a message thanking him for an interesting fight and he thanked me back!

    It does happen! Love mail is the way forward!

    I only ever send positive messages as I don't ever feel the need to get angry at a game, no matter how cheap the death may seem they won, I lost. And if I get frustrated, I stop PvPing. I remember trying to invade Emergence during his event and I invaded another guy twice, first time I successfully BC'd and the second time I tried to run to BC but I got backstabbed, he sent me a message lol, I told him what I was up to and he wished me luck. Still couldn't connect to E sad

    Almost everything--all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure--these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.
