WSG Weekend & You
04/14/2012 09:30 AMPosted by CôtaminatedPretty much this, if you were raiding heroic Deathwing and pushing for server first, would you be having a laugh, or would you be extremely focused and determined to down it?
I wouldn't be heroic raiding unless I was having fun. I like to be successful and I like to have fun in everything I do. Being competitive and wanted to have fun are natural. Everything I do includes both, not one or the other.
It's just plain rude to waste their time. Remember its a multiplayer game. Not a Côtaminated game.
The difference is that I play the objective in rateds, because again, those games mean something.
And that's why randoms do mean something to others. To earn gear so they can arena or get into RBGs. It takes longer to earn the currency with a losing streak.
I don't mind losing, it's just a main aspect to deal with when gaming, it's sheer frustration when your team doesn't take the initiative to try.
CoD is what comes to mind as the most current and popular FPS at the moment
This isn't CoD...
Comparing a FPS to an MMO is just idiotic. Both share certain similarities, but I find in Wow that it takes more than a fast trigger finger, well placed grenades etc. to show a great deal of gameplay and skill.
You also have the usual: "Horde just zerged the fr, gotta gtfo\ EFC was alone, so he's dead \ FC has been forced out of the base, dieing in the process"04/13/2012 02:58 AMPosted by SingleswornDon't need a mod for that, enabling target of target works just as well :)
Whatever works. Always a bit disheartening to lose a cap because the FC isn't around the flag stand as the EFC's health is dropping like a stone.

Who says they aren't wasting my time?The internet affect: Don't know them, don't want to know them, don't care about them.04/14/2012 09:53 AMPosted by DarleiaAs a human being you should respect that the majority of players queuing for battlegrounds want to win
Effect you buffon
04/14/2012 10:03 AMPosted by CôtaminatedComparing a FPS to an MMO is just idiotic.Don't blame me, blame the person that posted it.
To clarify I was NOT comparing and FPS to an MMO. All I was suggesting is that Blizzard introduce some kind of death match style BG. I used most multi player FPSs as an example to clarify what I meant by the death match BG.
04/14/2012 09:14 AMPosted by CôtaminatedYou can be the best random PvPer in the world, however, when compared to say, rated BG players, you're trash.
Dumbest assumption you have made yet. I am starting to think you're just trolling for the lulz.
04/14/2012 09:30 AMPosted by CôtaminatedSource? I have as much of a chance of getting 2,200 gear as anyone else.
Yeah you're going to go far with that triple deeps setup.
At the end of the day, if you can't complete objectives in random battlegrounds, what makes you think you're going to be successful in Rated BGs? No one is going to take a player who's only notable achievements are racking up KBs and tunneling down mid field players.

No one is going to take a player who's only notable achievements are racking up KBs and tunneling down mid field players.Random =/= rated. Do you honestly believe that I run around in rated in mid? Rated games mean something, I go for the objectives in rated.
Judging from the attitude you expressed at people that aim to earn a win in a bg, yes. You stated yourself winning is that not much of a big deal to you, but then later on admitted you take arenas/RBGs seriously.
As for the random 'PvPer is trash' remark, I'm as casual as they come, yet I still experienced a bit of RBGs. Sadly with my horrid hours at work, helping out family in the area, I can't secure a permanent spot for myself, so people have to find replacements. I can't complain, it's just life for me.
I don't just take my geared a*s in randoms just to have fun and play out the objective, I also use the currency to buy mats. It saves up on a lot of gold for enchants whenever I'm capping a new toon.
So you have experienced a great deal of RBGs. Good, then you should have an understanding of why people like to be competitive. Either hardcore or casual.04/14/2012 10:45 AMPosted by SkwishGood thing I don't RBG on Cota. Unholy is terrible for RBGs.
