Before that match I was against a group of 3 stackers, and a group of 4 before that, so I was already mad. Add that to the lag and I was getting pretty pissed off. I don't dislike you or Jace even, I just get mad at the world. I was thinking about it and there are only 2-3 people I actually don't like. I think only 1 of them is a board member, that must be playing on an alt or have quit bioshock.
I had some very nice matches tonight, despite getting by butt handed to me. First part of the night I was a head shot psycho. Then it devolved into just hoping to survive. Blane and I did the best we could. Still I had fun. Although I felt like a weak link a few times. I swear to god that I hate rez worse than anything. I got cheated out of so many kills because of it. Some d-bag goes into rez and a teammate either kills the rezzer or I get killed. Ran across PhlyPinoy in CW which was both a blessing and a bane. Loved you on my team, hated it when you were against us. Still thanks for the tips and encouragement. All in all I had a good night.
Scope, y u so sexy?
Tryharders, tryharders everywhere.
On these notes, I am starting to love the scope. The less slugs isn't a problem at all. I can't wait until it's use-able and practical way for me to kill.
But, definitely a lot of players take this game way too seriously. I've gotten a lot of angry patrons venting at me. Through mics and text based messages. Not my fault they play inadequately, or poorly on their own part. It's also one big, headache inducing facepalm, when people send the "Get a life" or rage on their mics. While I'm here, with a calm, passive voice/tone attempting to defuse the whole situation. That's just ridiculous. I honestly have no time for this, guys. Don't make me deny your existence. In the first place, sending notes questioning others' way in life is a counter-productive move. Are enjoying hobbies out of the question? Video games may be my guilty pleasure, but I don't think it lessens the quality of my life then the next seemingly, average person. I happen to love playing, it is therapeutic, by it's own merit. I find it relaxing, in some cases. Just a killjoy of mine when somebody spouts their own biased, narrow-minded nonsense, and continue to speak upon it like somebody gave some damn.
Tl;Dr: Some people just aren't worth acknowledging.
I can't understand why people do that kind of stuff. Still though why such aggression over a game. I will say one proud moment tonight. I didn't get t-bagged at all. I got corpse beat but I'm ok with that.
Phly don't let them get to you, in my eyes your Lord of the Wrench
I'm thinking of reinstalling BS2 soon, after I finish Max Payne 3 I don't think I'll play it anymore and that'll leave me some hard drive space. If you're on PC, look out for a noob running around with a machine gun and a pistol (creativity scares me).
and V, yes, if someone is going to hate me I usually expect a reason or for myself to have done something wrong to merit it. I'm never rude to anyone unprovoked, and I'm personally sick of people doing it to me constantly anymore. It's uncalled for and shows how immature a lot of the players are, and i'm not just talking about what slow did. BTW can anyone tell me who F-Brozzy is? They're a tbagger and not nearly as good as they apparently think they are
I had some very awesome matches this morning. I was using about everything I felt like running. Head shots didn't go to well. But I was surprised that I was able to use the nailgun to such good effect. It was actually fun and I can't count how many times I was killed by a machine gun. Got into a few noob lobbies so I just stuck back and let them do most of the work. Had the most fun I've had in bioshock in a while. Is it just me or is it getting harder to find a sotf lobby?
Too many kill fodder in SOFT. First world problems.
Nothing but laggy matches tonight. My connection shows 100%. Boxspam and nuthugging all around. I am getting sick of the community. Most of them are nowhere near my skill, yet they talk ☺☺☺☺. I have no respect for Level 50s using rez and nadespam. Bioshock 2 is becoming a waste of time.
I can't argue with you there.
Their immaturity is really laughable.
I'm considering using the gl as my primary again and putting death trap in all my loadouts for the t-baggers. The reason being is that the gl can piss off nuthuggers. Then for all those who wish to t-bag or corpse beat me, I'll explode. I'm really wanting to play as "politely" douchy as everyone else. Still I think it's actually a small percentage that does all those things. Sadly it's mostly rebirth 50's that do it.
I ignore them most of the time. Taking it with a grain of salt. I do find it funny when I get in match hate or hate mail. I take that as a compliment.
surprisingly i've really enjoyed my time i bio the past few days, been playing alot with an old friend. fun fun
I actually played a few rounds with kingneo last night. I told him I dislike him less than the guys on the other team who are "self confessed boxspammers" (I overhead them talking about how they programmed their controllers to automatically boxspam with 1 button press). I always lag in neo's host matches. Some players I always lag in their matches. xjuan, kingneo, rosyrios are the ones that stick out in my mind.
I love noob matches (anyone below level 30) I actually enjoy getting killed by a machine gun. There's something of a thrill of taking on someone and not just getting/giving a single headshot to kill each other. Both players working their hardest to take the other down. Reminds me why I love the GL and machine gun.
I can't even play. I can't seem to get better than 95% connectivity with my new equipment. (eventhough it is 12 feet away)
It's hard for me to find the care to even play the Multi-Player anymore.
more fun matches today with old friends haha enjoying leveling up my new account. it feels good to be a noob again or at least considered one.
[QUOTE=slowdive;1606396]I can't even play. I can't seem to get better than 95% connectivity with my new equipment.

I think I'm going to take a Bioshock break. I just didn't feel "It" today. When I was playing about an hour ago. I didn't do all that bad or anything it's just that, it felt empty playing. So I'm going to spend time on the two other games I have to finish for a while. I maybe back or not. I just don't know. So maybe when I do come back it will be fun again. I think I'm just burned out. Also getting sick of the same old junk everyday.
More fun matches the good thing about playing on new accounts is if your in a lobby as a level 5 no one runs from you. haha.
I played this morning as I wanted to test a theory. That theory was if playing in the early morning (5 am) or late after noon effected how I felt about the game. Every time I've had good matches recently is because I was getting a few in before work. This morning was good. I actually enjoyed it. There were random teams. Sotf wasn't bogged down by pro head hunters. I actually felt like I did when I first started. Even messing around with resurrection. All in all I believe that it's those early morning hours that I enjoy the most.
It seem to me that the evening/late at night matches all the douche players are on. Stacked teams. The t-baggers. All those things that annoy me.
In the mornings it's always a mixed lot of players and I can always find at least one sotf match. My first match was with Jug Jace. It was fun getting a head shot on him. I'm still annoyed by all the nailgunners, but hey they can run what they enjoy. I don't mind anymore. My mornings will be bioshock and my evening will be either Wolfenstein or Singularity. I still have to complete Dead Space with one weapon.
I just recently bought a new mic (A pair of Turtle Beach: PX21, love them). Although, it is usually set to mute. I usually have a taciturn conduct when it comes to mics. Stemming from either laziness, overall inattention, or uninterest in what to say. Seems like the only use it has for a while is needless retorts at the impolite patrons. I do command my team of randoms once in a while, but they probably won't listen. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't mind talking to you all, save the bad instances of elitists and tryharders spitting up a storm of bull.
Here's a few notes on DS1, if you are aiming to platinum it (I've platinum'd it twice, love the game as much as bioshock).
If you are going for all weapon upgrades and the one gun, plasma cutter trophy, be sure to pick easy mode. This allows you to sell more of your unneeded health and stasis recoveries for power nodes. During the first playthrough, be sure to max out both your plasma cutter and rig (since the all upgrades actually includes the rig too). Afterwards, allocate everything into the other weapons, but leave them in the bank so you aren't inclined to use them. It will take more then one playthrough (2 rounds) to get all the upgrades. Be sure to take note that you will only have access to create a new file on the hardest setting AFTER you beat the last boss, and are taken to the title screen. So be sure to create a new file, set to survivor, create a new save file, exit and return to a new playthrough (round 2) of your pre-existing finished saved file that is still marked with (easy).
Another tip for the dismember trophies, be sure to stomp all the dead bodies you see, including the ones that aren't enemies. If you do it right, you should have the 1000 limb trophy on chapter 3-5.
I tried playing today. Yet the epic frustration made me want to break my controller. I don't know how people can get those impossible head shots. Like being in a room alone and die from a head shot. I'd get hit once with electro bolt and be dead wtf? Either the lag was a douche or everyone was cheating. I was also reminded why I hate team based modes. I think if I do stick with bio I'm going sotf only. I'll play team modes if invited. If it keeps going like this I'm going to figure out how to GL suicide. Just to piss people off.
Please don't become a suiciding doosh. If you do, I'll feel the terrorist have truly won.
That was mostly just the rage being vented. I have no intention of doing that. I've decided to go back to the GL permanently. Of all the weapon's in this game I have loved it the most. It get me kills (and kills myself). I love the rage it generates and most importantly of all. It felt natural to use. I'm just to lazy to do head shots (unless I'm messing around with the GL).
