It seems every time I win, mainly with Raiden, people go out of their way to give me 0 points. Its not like I spam the Superman Torpedo or play overtly cheap. I now know what Jeff meat a couple of months ago. It is infuriating.
No one is giving me Respect.
Am sorry i usually give respect, but i never do to raiden or ermac because 95% spam tele grab or torpedo. It makes a boring match so in turn 0 respect is adequate, i give out allot of 10's just as long as its an interesting match. If you sit there wining over and over with tele+torpedo i wouldn't expect anything else.
But i do agree there's allot of butt hurt people who lose in a good match and give you 0 points or rage quit.
Edit: i don't think i've ever given 0 though
It's a fighting game.. where people get together online to have two characters on screen physically fight (in a virtual world). I would expect the players of such a genre to be the most angry, aggressive, hostile and hateful out of all competitive gaming genre! (I didn't say all of them are, i said they probably make the biggest percentage of jerks compared to other genres)
so i'm not surprised one bit.
The best respect is the Ali G respect!
It could be worse.Wow!
The respect point system is the best thing they could have ever done. The best moment in fighting games is when you get salty rage messages sent to you afterwords, and you get to think "yah, I did my job".
My favourite moment playing MvC3 was when someone sent me a voice message to the effect of "Why are you such a little bitch, like, why do you even play games? to be the biggest bitch possible? Is it even fun for you to be such a bitch? Fuck you bitch" I wish Xbox let you save voice messages :(
Now people who would normally be to lazy to send you hillarious rage messages, can give you zero's. And you get that same happy feeling of "I destroyed this guy and now he's sooo angry about being bad".
Especially as respect points are meaningless outside of gauging if the enemy is angry or not.
Only thing I give zero's for is wasting everyone's time with a fatality when there's a bunch people waiting in line for their turn.
Mr. Nolan North with a goatee, you don't deserve respect!
Kidding, kidding. I understand, it does stink. Instead of a 0-10 scale, maybe 5-10 or 1-5? I dunno. A scale without a zero? A zero would suggest that the player receiving that score did absolutely nothing.
It's a game and we all get bonuses for getting respect. So I always give 10's. Anyone that gives a score less than 5 is a jerk.. really.Unless they are Raiden and spam the superman teleport, or sub zero who wins by constant sliding. But even then, I'd still give them a 5, can't think of a reason to give them anything under a 5.
I wouldn't be too worried about respect to be honest, unless you are going for an achievement or something (can't remember if there is one). It doesn't mean a great deal, not to mention King of the Hill is terribly laggy. At least for me, it's a guarenteed lagfest.
