Nope, envy that everyone can team with ogres, only Rangers are restricted... And I feel that way from both sides
What a lot of people are seemingly forgetting is the Ogre Lore, there's more to it then just smashing, drooling and speaking in the third person. Ogres serve the Dark Masters, they are not nice, they are not good. They just don't give two fucks about what the Ogres do as long as they collect heads. So when good aligned guilds team with them they are aiding the Dark Masters, now if thats the guilds choice to choose grinding parters>RP which is quite easy to figure out what 80% of the population would/is doing... then oh well. I commend the Rangers for actually sticking to what they are suppose to.
As a free person of middle earth if you see a creature collecting heads and throwing them into a bloody sack, just because they smile merrily doesn't mean red flags shouldn't be flying through your brain.
Hey, I've met plenty of ogres. Some are brutes who should (in a rangers view of course) be put down, but there are ogres who do the free people of Middle Earth great service, ridding the world of orcs, trolls and hararims. There are even, as I wrote earlier, ogres who have enlisted in the Thornlin Militia. Now, double standard anyone?
Dark Masters.. They serve the Darklings. Sure. When was the dark evil and the light good. Darkness and light are mortal views, that we mortals have a tendency to associate this with the evil and the good is based mainly on the fear of the dark. I know rangers who do not fear the dark whatsoever, so... Now, if the Dark Masters want to take over Emerald, hey, I don't really mind... Minotaurs are considered an abomination to the Solamnian Knights, but Huma Dragonbane, a major hero of their history was great friends with Kaz... Does this perhaps mean that not all minotaurs should be used for the next BBQ at VK and rather be encouraged to follow the path of light?
Given the ogre's hang for ripping the head of creatures and tossing them into a bloody sack, the "free person of Middle Earth" should not be alone in reacting (although, as long as the ogre is goodaligned, none of they do), in that logic, every sane human, elf, dwarf, gnome, hobbit, kender and half-elf should avoid them as the plague... Now, necromancers, DA's, AA's and mages can't be defined as sane, so we'll exclude them, nor can goblins
The Valar however, should not even have a vague idea about these Darklings, as they belong to a totally different lore, so unless we should gather all avatars, gods and omnipotent beings in one big pool and let them all get to know eachother (and of course see the war between Takhisis and Melkor ravage Sanction, Neraka & Mordor), they should not really mind eachother.

Sure, would be cool, they could team with the Angmarians goodies who should hold the title "Kindergarden of Angmar"
