I have to stop playing this game...

Posted by lclay (383 posts) -

 It makes me so goddamn angry. Don't get me wrong when it's good it's REALLY good and I love it but a lot of the time it just gets me so angry that it can't be good for my blood pressure. I mean seriously guys in most games it's like "Oh hey we already have two assassins on the team so if you could be a gunner or something that would be gre.... oh you say want to stab people in the neck like uh uh uh uh uh? ok then be an assassin but oh look we lost." or "HAY GUYZ!! I don't know if you've noticed but we don't have any turrets at all . I mean I built and upgraded one instead of getting my double minigun but now it's been haxxored by some arsehole support because there were no other turrets to FUCKING SHOOT HIM but I totally understand if you want to fully upgrade your dash first but oh look we lost again :(" 
 
To be honest, this generally happens to me with most online shooters after I've put about 20-30 hours in and I think I should really avoid playing online unless I want to suffer a stress related stroke. Does anyone else get super angry when playing this game or any other online game or do I just have issues? 
 
Thus ends my first blog post.

You should find some friends to play with so you don't have to worry about an unbalanced team. Enter your info on the Giant Bomb Player List thread.

Laugh at things more.  
"Everyone's gone assassin and support but no one's building turrets, ha, that's pretty funny, we'll probably lose but this is pretty fun anyway." as opposed to "WARGHARABABAL damn Assassin idiots etcetera blabla" . 
 
It helps.

As a gunner, Assassins are easy to deal with. i just do my slam, it reveals and stuns them. If you engage them first, you will win 90% of the time.

That's pretty good advice. I'll try to see it more like that.

Oh I play a lot of gunner and assassins are no problem, unless they are particularly sneaky, which most of them aren't!

Dude, this is constantly happening to me more and more.  I dont know how many games I've played now where we will have 4 assassins on the team...seriously?  Do you think we are going to win?  No.  Does anyone change?  No.  Now I could understand if they were actually GOOD at playing the assassin, but no.  Hell one guy at the end of the match was 1 and 12.  And NO ONE will build turrets or spawn bots!  I don't understand these people.  I totally get upset!

Hate people that just do support or assassin. Grinds my gears. Game is so easy to play but everyone fails at it some how.

If you know you're going to lose because of moronic teammates, pick a class you're not so familiar with and consider it a practice session. That's how I've kept my sanity playing with randoms.

All support is funny and good :D. Hack the Longshot Turret and run in to their base with another support healing you and hack six of their turrets.
