Fallout 1st subscribers have formed a clan of aristocrats to perpetrate Fallout 76 class warfare

(Stupid) war never changes

Whether the reports of Fallout 1st players being harassed in Fallout 76 are highly fabricated or not, a large cluster of Fallout 1st subscribers have taken the narrative idea of being villains and run with it, forming a literal aristocracy to lord over those who don’t pay the private server subscription plan.

Reporting from Polygon offers a closer look at the Apocalyptic Aristocracy, a clan of nearly 300 Fallout 1st players who have leaned hard into the idea of class warfare that may or may not be happening within Fallout 76. According to founder VectorZarak, the Aristocracy also works as a “safe haven” where 1st subscribers can openly talk about the subscription without fear of reprisal.

“Nothing seems to bring people together like shared suffering, and the past week has seen a lot of venom spewed toward Fallout 1st members. I want to give players a place to go where they can peacefully discuss and plan with others who use the private servers.”

Of course, there are a wide number of players among the Aristocracy who gleefully take the idea of talking down to “peasants” and run with it. When asked about why members joined the guild, several players offered shitpost-level replies.

“We joined because we’re better than everyone else,” replied Terry Mollinet, who later replied that he was simply joking.

“I really enjoy getting under someone’s skin and then at the end hitting them with the good old, ‘learn to laugh, it’s just a joke and only a game’ to later double down on my trolling,” said Jeremy Singer.

“I joined to whip ass and chew on peasants, and I’m all outta peasants,” said player Shibby Hocker.

“We are simply classier and wealthier than the common rabble! Why sully yourself on a public server when you can hoard legendaries for yourself and sell them for a massive profit to the less fortunate!” responds player Donald Meeks.

The Polygon article contends that most of the Aristocracy appears to be above board and genuinely seeking respite from the manufactured class war, though one does have to wonder if openly talking down to those who aren’t 1st subscribers isn’t going to go over terribly well.

While I’m sure this isn’t good for the game, I’m entertained that this happened from a “players doing things way different from what the developers intend” perspective.

Just when I think that ’76 might be worth checking out after the NPC update, Bethesda keeps making the trainwreck worse.

I don’t get why anyone cares. Be mad at the company behind the game for enabling a broken system but don’t get mad at the players for taking advantage of it and roleplaying it in a way that makes sense for the setting and honestly sounds kinda fun.

Now if they are being total jerks and using their advantage in a way that actively hurts the player-base in a way that I misunderstood, then that is different you can ignore the first block of text I wrote.

Disclaimer: I don’t play this game as I was waiting for the wastelanders update so forgive me if I got the wrong impression. But games should be fun and the idea of an aristocracy of jerks in the apocalypse sounds like fun to me even if they did get that way because certain players have more disposable cash than others.

You got the wrong impression. They’re not “having fun”, they’re trolling other people. Read the article.

You gotta love how some people just don’t see this as a bad thing. The online game community is the reason why people want to solo in MMOs now. Being complete jerk offs to others is called role-playing.

I’ve been mad at gaming companies doing dumb shit for almost a decade. At some point, the responsibility has to shift at least SOMEWHAT to the players.

Bad enough that people still play this garbage, but now there’s a group who gleefully subscribes to it?

Gaming would be in a better place is people would THINK.

I’m surprised you even quoted them. That’s certainly giving them attention they probably do not need.

I mean they did say they were joking at least.

More than the people trying to harass them can say I suppose.

Clearly the creme de la creme. Who wouldn’t want to party with these alpha examples of human evolution.

I mean its a lot like real life rich people. Shit like prosperity gospel or the morals theyre taught from birth are that people who have less money must not have worked as hard as them and been as morally upright as them, because otherwise all their wealth and power has nothing to do with their moral fiber,

Yeah, kinda. Not like all of them, but a huge part of them have a pretty “not my problem” purview of the world.

My specific problem here, is how some morons were able to believe they’re superior or better than anyone by paying a sub to play FALLOUT 76.

A SUB. TO FALLOUT. SEVENTY-SIX.

What kind of degenerate dickwad is able to mental gymnastic his way towards thinking he’s better than anyone by paying this garbage?

I wonder what the Star Citizen/FO76 venn diagram overlap is for awful people/awful business models and amount of money spent.

So it’s like the television show Cheers except for people that are even more pathetic and have nowhere else to go?
