# How to deal with DM favoritism? [duplicate]

I've been playing a 4e dungeons and dragons campaign for a while now, and it's the first campaign I've ever played in. The DM seems to keep pampering one player in particular. He usually only gives plot hooks to that player, never blames that player for anything, gives that player any and all magical items he wants, and let that player start out the game with a feat that allows him to take two standard actions per turn without spending an action point. The player claims that us other players are just bad at the game, even though his character sheet has multiple very clear errors. The thing is, this player is the only reason that we can win any battles since he's a higher level than any of us and the DM scales bosses to him. The DM has recently started giving plot hooks to other players, but the only time this has happened was when he gave my character a single hook one session ago. I'm sorry for ranting, I would just like to know how to deal with this.

• @minnmass Those statuses aren't excuses for favoritism but the only acceptable reasons for favoritism. :-) – Hey I Can Chan Mar 16 '15 at 10:19
