Superiority Complex

I'm sure you've seen at least 1 person/nation somewhere in this game that has this going on. It seems that no matter what you talk about, they are always better then everyone around them. Is this a bad thing? Yes and No.
Why a double answer? Because, to me it's the truth. I'll start with Yes first.

It can be a bad thing, since you are NEVER always better then everyone else. You may be on top for a long long time, but it's a game, and there's always times where things come full circle and you go from the top to the bottom and possibly back again.

In case of a nation, you can go from having 10/10 bonuses and conquering half the map, to being completely wiped off the map.

In terms of a player, you may reach the peak of the game, be it President (w/e your country has), a Campaign Hero, a Business Mogul (Sry, I forgot this is eRep), and it can all come crashing down. You will not remain your countries President or top Politician forever, somebody will replace you eventually. In wars, there's always another battle with another person taking over the top spot (all you need is a credit Card).

Now on to the No. It can be good for the unity of a country to have that ego boost or feeling of invincibility, it makes the problems around seem less destructive. It's also fun and morale building to be able to say my MU or Party etc. is top dog right now. There's nothing wrong with that, as long as you remember that it's all just a balloon that can pop on you in an instant.

We all play in this crappy/not crappy/fun/frustrating game, but sometimes we seem to forget that it's all just a damn game. One day you may be on top, but there's always another player or nation in the wings ready to pounce and take you out. If you choose to toot your own horn, make sure to do it in fun, and be watching over your shoulder for your replacement.

That cat thinks he is better than us. That's why cat's aren't allowed in my house.
Oh crap, did Mazzy hear me say that?

Mostly true, but you do have to admit that Ajay has the biggest... (ahem) in the room.

lol.. I purposefully made sure not to point any fingers, since at some point or another many of us are guilty of it, jokingly or otherwise

Candor Dia 1,821, 17:51

Good points.

I honestly don't think AJ has the biggest superiority complex in the game (or nation) by any means, I've yet to hear him say he's the best at much of anything, except recruiting, which he is, imo. AJ has other social issues, but I don't think a superiority complex is one, actually.

As to the cyclicle nature of power, that's been a really interesting thing to watch, over the years. Honestly I've learned things about human nature playing eRep, in a much more rapid pace than RW.

I guess I was overly subtle, trying to avoid a ban-point.

I didn't mean that Ajay had the biggest superiority complex in the room.

I meant that Ajay clearly has the biggest... let's say, "equipment" in the room.

Don't ask me how I know. And don't judge me.

TBQH, I don't think he is anything as a recruiter either. How hard could it be to go into an enemy country and scream "Who wants to screw over the eUS?". If anything, he's the best traitor in this game.
