I have fond memories of the Tea Room. Sure some things happened, but I'm sort of glad it was around. I doubt I would have had any idea what was going on otherwise. It was a nice place for us noobs to just be noobs and help each other out.
Also, I'd say some good things came out of that. Most members of it are still active and the like.
You act like Team Chicken wasn't the inspiration for the Tea Room. But, shhhhhh, Team Chicken is a secret
Both sides here are right. BMGers frequently acted like anti-PE2K-ist tards in the Dojo Sensei Tea Room, but it was that friendly tard-ish atmosphere that kept some of us hanging around and forged strong relationships which in turn also helped us hang around.
The trick will be to show the TPWers that they don't need to fear us oldies (very strenuously avoiding the word "vet" there lolol) and that they can and should form relationships with us, not just other TPWers.
Everyone should have just done what I did, and sat to the side. Then we'd all be fine, and happy now, and not worrying about screwing up with the new people by being divided because of forums. But no, no one follows my example.
All I know is, Pe2kers were a lot more relaxed, they treated urpg as a game.
Some bmgers, (Not pointing fingers) treat it like so much more and it's kind of dumb.. you know forming groups, forums etc...
There's a real world outside of the URPG friends!!
Hopefully TPW will be more relaxed.
It's not elitist if Pe2k really is better
In all seriousness, though, I think inter-forum banter is a good thing. I mean, we're still here, aren't we? If it really ended up making people hate each other, we'd have given up on BMG long ago.

There are no sides anymore. We're one group, one RPG, one people. TPW won't change that. :P
