So why not let them enjoy being on a team and decking themselves out with the gear in peace? They're having fun, and it's drawing them deeper into the game, which is a good thing.

You guys sound like a bunch of crusty old dads yelling at their kids not to major in art history.
As the father of a 12 yr old girl - yeah, this. I dont know anything about Team Trilogy and just discovered the game a month or so ago, but I do know about the things these kids like - and they enjoy this kind of "identity". It sounds as though there is some minor tangible benefit to the group, so, its better than "Team Jacob", thats for certain.

As for the mentality that enjoys that kind of thing, thats another subject...its definitely not for me as an "old crusty dad", thats for sure.

I finally read the guidelines to be a member of TT.....hilarious. Talk about being pimped out. I can see kids wanting to be a member, but grown men??? That's sad.
