Stats are very important. How else can your performance be rated when it comes time to pay the big money to the best players. I mean after all, this is serious. If you have bad stats how will you support your family? You may end up finding it hard to pay your bills if your win rate is too low and WG cuts your salary. So, to hell with fun, grow up, grind it out, live to win, play only to get better, don't relax, or you will NOT get that big contract with all the $$$ and perks. Remember too, the people you play with, whom you don't know and will never meet, are watching you. You dont want to let them down with your relaxed easy going fun style gameplay! So, remember, this isn't a game, it's a job and strangers are both judging you and counting on you so step it up!!!!

Since you can't win an argument with facts, you go for a reduction to absurdity fallacy. That's cool. What's it like working in the retail industry?

Bah, stats again. There are many things one does to help your team win a battle, and many of them you will get zero points for.

 

The only thing that matters to me is feeling I played well.

Not trying to win an argument just using absurdity to point out the absurd.

No, just mocking those who seem to forget that this is a GAME. A free game.  So many complaints lately about how un-fun the grind is etc. If it's not fun then why the hell are you doing it??? To get great stats? To grind to the next un-fun level? To get the big financial payoff for being "unicum?" Or is your payoff the smug feeling you get by putting you stats in your signature?

I want to perform well and I don't feel mocked at all. I think he's mocking the ones who obsess over it.

I understand this is a troll post, but I do find it funny that you post about this while hiding your stats. :)

Stats don't matter because they are subjective and change meaning depending on how the player plays. 

 

However retail work and I don't mean just ringing someone up is tough as is the food industry.  So you shouldn't use it to poke fun at someone

And I should care what you think about my stats?  If they are better than yours will I get more money or perks? If they are bad will I get my salary cut? Because I was under the impression that this was a free game that anyone could play and, if they chose to play it to relax after a long day in the real world, that it's ok if they don't want to grind grind grind to become the most bestest unicum player.

Give me a break he is making fun of anyone that does not play the game exactly the way he does. Did you not see the jab he took in the OP?

Anyone that does not play purely to relax and pew pew a couple boats is targeted by this thread. 

 

This is exactly the same as the people that cant stand the play4fun crowd except from the opposite perspective.

How is trying to be good at a game, trying to win and giving it your best shot at having decent stats make it a job?

Are you one of those who takes the game very seriously? Has WG offered you that big contract yet because of all the hard work you've put in?  If you're having fun that's great, but those who grind out, fret over stats and just seem miserable because of it, those are the ones I'm "mocking"
