comically terrible vocal minority.
this the group that has hijacked most forums and continues to flood the forums with useless, waste of bandwidth posts about how [insert class here] beat them and the first thing they do is come to the forums, complain about the manner in which they were beaten, with 99.9% of the time being a failure on their part, but because they are incapable of taking any kind of criticism they shout even louder until blizzard start listening to this vocal minority, nerfing the game left and right to pacify these whining nobodies so that they continue to play the game, and continue to funnel real money into the game, screwing over the legitimate players who want to fix the game properly, and not just rely on kneejerk reactions from the blizzard developers who seem to cave to mass protest with no actual evidence other than "THE FEELZ ARE ALL WRONG YO", which coincedentally also can pretty much summarise the kids of today who have this notion that they have some kind of god given right of entitlement, and anyone/anythin that denies them that, is evil and must be punished.
What this guy said, though I have a bit of a different take. I think most players are familiar with
- games where they can win more often than not; games like WOW where you play against the computer, so technically every player could win
- or games where people can fool themselves into thinking they won; ala Call of Duty or League of Legends, where if your team wins you "win" or even if your team loses, you "win" if your score is awesome or whatever, so most of the players end the game thinking they won.
In HS of course, half the time someone has to lose, and I think for the reasons I stated above, many gamers are conditioned to believe that a 50% success rate is bad. To add to that, I think they view it as "Oh, it's a card game, so obviously it's going to be easy," forgetting that they have to outplay another player (not some bad computer) to win.
Still, I find it really annoying that everytime some newb loses a game they feel the need to complain that obviously it must be the rules' fault, not their own.
