Hi, I need to vent about the sad state of in game chat. I recently had a game in one of my IJN t8 Cruisers. I did 160 hits, 66k+ damage and got credit for two sinking’s although that is a team stat in my opinion. I finished second in a losing effort, one of only two ships from my team to survive.
When I peek at chat and someone is spewing report my ship name. I ask what I did wrong and he said my winning percentage was a cancer. Now first I know I am not one of the elite players nor claim to be. I do hope maybe one day to be but not yet. I present the stats not as a validation that I am anything other than trying to do my best. Second, the victory percentage is a worthless stat it means nothing about any player’s abilities it merely means that the teams I have played with have one “X” percent of the battles. I am but 1/12 of that equation.
Now some background and history for the kids out there I am yes born in that year. My first video game is the original one pong. I am an original geek and been into computers since before many of you were even an egg in your mothers ovaries. My system is custom and robust to say the least far beyond normal gamers’ systems. Therefore, geek is an understatement.
In my day, we were taught to respect our elders something lost on this generation. Being called a “cancer” when I am merely trying to have a good time doing something and have obviously spent the time to grind through up to tier 8 CA’s is worthy of degree of basic human respect. I also watch many videos from top players trying to learn and improve my game each day.
If you feel the need to have to put down other players when (by the way they were sunk already), well heck next time tell me up front you are the greatest thing to happen to WOWS since the microchip. I will not even bother to play because heck you should be able to win it all on your own. If not, frankly shut up no one wants to hear your filth.
First, because I don’t rush in and rather study my options is not a flaw it is called wisdom something that comes from living life and learning from its mistakes? Like most kids whom I assume this person was they are in too much of a hurry to do what most people, my age would prefer to do all night. Life is best savored and enjoyed and well just goes better when properly thought out.
Frankly, WG take chat out it is the cancer of the game! It is full of vial mouthed people of about as many intelligent words as their IQ. If it wasn’t for the more mature players like me that have a few bucks to spend on the game it wouldn’t even make enough to afford development. Now if it is possible for people to treat each other with a degree or respect and decorum then maybe it should stay but I am not holding my breath anytime soon for that to happen. Dudes it is a game after all not world peace in the balance. So just grow the blank up and you might learn something about life before it is over.
