Hallo Bombers and fellow Dota players. Like any game you play with other people E.G Multiplayer, you will find yourself having a bad game and for this one time it actually affects you. While it was a bad thing at the time a good vent can mean the world.
So I decided to make this thread at minimum for myself to vent about a bad game today and at maximum have anyone else come to vent.
I will first bring up a major rule, this thread is basically bitching about people. This being the Giant Bomb community and a good number of us group up and play with or against each other, I don't want any shit talking of fellow members. That is just nothing but bad news and Mods intervening.
Other than that bitch about random people and don't go too over the top.
I will start with a match that just had a team "Get" to me so much my anger went from 0 to 100 and I was a mad man. This is not like me.
Random Draft playing with a friend over skype and three randoms, I am first on my team and the carries are few so I pick Gyro as I have played him a tone and a 20 to 10 win ratio with him. My friend who was second to pick for our team picked Rubik for support. The other three dudes picked Winder runner, Batrider and one other hero who is not a carry.
So bat goes mid I take offlane with Windrunner. Its hard going as we are getting just bullied. . So 5 minutes in we are having 5 man team fights. The enemy team is TERRIBLE and the worst fact is we also were terrible team fights were a mess with just stupidity happening from all of us.
I didn't get much farm between Windrunner taking it and being bullied out of it from the enemy. I try to farm but a teammate steals it or I get ganked. Lack of damage being done lack of money, I have power treads already set to agility for more damage not enough. So I have enough to buy phase boots so I have that extra attack and I get to speed up for escape or for Rocket Barrage.
THIS IS WHERE THE PROBLEM HAPPENS.
I am now being bitched at for having two boots on me. Batrider dude just wouldn't let up I give him my reasons then the other dude pipes up and says "two boots cmon. Do you even know how to play dota?!" and so it just went on like that. I told them I needed extra damage for farm, to escape and I cant afford a shadow blade. I will sell them once I can get a shadow blade.
They just kept going on and on about my two boots and wanting me to sell them this very second...I am in the middle of farming...they are bitching I need to farm...what do they want me to do both at the same time? Also I need the benefits of the boots, yes I am not getting that extra passive speed boost but I get phase speed boost when activated and extra damage. I bought this stuff over three deaths saving up for one 1400 item was not a possible goal, I need to bank the money if you will on cheaper items.
So after 10 minutes of bitching they calm down. They even stacked the ancients for me to farm, I said thanks. I mauled the weaker ancients and the alpha? ones were left. I was fucked up by the bitching and was not thinking straight and was killed by the ancients.
SO OF COURSE MY TEAM DECIDED TO BITCH HARDER! Going on about boots again, going on about poor farm when they kept taking it from me....c'mon when I use flak cannon your not to mop most of them.
I then said "Yeah I fucked up I cant think straight due to all the bitching." then batrider duder says "That does not mean you make bad decisions." I lost it.and just typed "CAN'T THINK STRAIGHT! CAN'T THINK STRAIGHT THATS THE VERY FUCKING DEFINITION ON WHY YOU MAKE BAD DECISIONS!!!"
I can not handle such stupidity why I was a mad man.
Then started to say "you should have Helm of Dominator!" how the fuck am I suppose to buy that with no money and besides that's not the best for Gyro as he isn't a tank. Its helpful late game with other important items like Shadow blade for escape, damage AND attack speed,but this is now 20 mins in.
So it got worse I was just shouting at them through text and just fountained. They calmed down and said a sort of sorry. I then said "As long as no one makes comments to me, I will be fine....." Then big mouth batrider pipes up with "I made the comments because you weren't fine. Have you ever played gyro?" I lost it told them all to fuck off abandoned the match. Shouted fuck off to my friend on skype and slammed my NEW microphone I got today as i logged off skype.
Bad things were going to happen if I kept playing.
Once I cooled off I checked the replay to see what was said, cant see Ally chat but in public the enemy team was pretty insistent on pausing and waiting for me to return which is really nice of them. The two guys go "nah he raged quit" accurate....then....THEN....he says this. "Did you see he had two boots?" other guy chimes in "Yeah what a noob he had two boots!" silence enemy team didn't even acknowledge them waited for safe to leave game and left.
I checked up on the Batrider dudes wins and losses as he doesn't have it private(and I couldn't let it go), I saw he had won 220 matches, I am 150 with 160 losses. I checked through his matches and found he had 9 game loss streaks often in his records. I never have such a long streak of losses 5 or 6 yeah but 9? We all get left with shitty teammates or bad teammates, we get pitted against awesome players or the fate of the game just meant you did not win.
It also seemed most matches didn't last past the 30 minute mark and the score being slanted greatly to the other team. With the only constant thing in all these games is he was playing.
I swear if you stray from the top two guides for a character people will hang you for it. I was viper offlane and was getting hit hard by simple spells so I invested in vanguard for some extra health dude nearly had a heart attack at it. It was an unusual circumstance you have to improvise no need to be a robot and stay on a track all your life geez. That match didn't wind up with me quitting I just played on as he stopped bitching after a few minutes and I tanked while melting faces.
Had dude bitch at me about Sniper and getting desolator on him...then mocked me for going mid (Won my lane against a decent pudge) then went on about how Sniper was one of the worst heros because A) he is useless mid....?????.....and B) he has no escape.....whys you buy shadow blade. Thing is I bought desolator vs very fed Pudge, Spirit Breaker and Life stealer. Ripped up their health like it was butter and lead us to winning. Yeah sniper is a bad hero.
Needless to say I am having a break from Dota over the next few days.
Some of you duders may have played with or against me, should know I am not a useless asshole just you have a bad game and when its your own team against you how can you play?
