  1. Whoa. PvE players, PTS bots have evolved

    That's actually one of the things that pisses me off most about the bots; as soon as you've lined up that perfect, impossible-to-dodge torpedo salvo, one of their secondaries will inevitably knock out one (or all!) of your tubes the nanosecond before you click to fire them.

    The so-called "emotional IQ" you mention does not exist. Your argument is invalid.

    There you have it, folks. I tried to lead the horse to water, but he just wouldn't drink. He continues to disregard the sense of perspective that we have been trying to give him, that this is just a blip on the radar and bears no real or further consideration. He has not only repeatedly rejected it, but he insists on being disingenuous about it. He can have his little pout, and we can all go back to our games.

    What is it with you and making a mountain out of a molehill? Perspective. It's what's for dinner.

    If the above quote is enough to wind you up...well... Regardless, that's the whole point of a formal argument—to put out one's opinion and back it up against another person's opinion and the rationale behind theirs. Frankly, I don't care whether or not you have played war games for decades, and neither does anybody else; we were all newbies once, but we made the effort to learn and become better. If you really want to do that, then what other people have to say to you shouldn't bother you, especially since you clearly knew that the guy who "insulted" you was incorrect and being dumb (and whom you apparently put on ignore). The world isn't going to pad its sharp corners for you, sunshine. So it is on you to grow a pair and step up to the table, or go away and play by yourself.

    When you asked him why he had to be sarcastic, it gave off the impression that you were complaining about him using sarcasm in his post (which, let's be honest, was incredibly mild). As for not wanting to start an argument—congratulations, you were successful! No one here is arguing with you in the sense you seem to think they are. What people in this here thread are doing is either disagreeing with you, or else trying to be of assistance in some fashion. But we can only show you the door, you're the one who has to walk through it.

    Sarcasm is not an insult. If you didn't know that before, then you are either willfully ignorant, or far beyond the help of anyone here or elsewhere on the Internet.

    As @VGLance said, perhaps move to Co-op for a few days and bone up on your skills.

    "Ten million people can't all be wrong" is, in itself, a false statement. Just because "many" (a weasel word) people are "talking about [it]" doesn't make what they are saying true or right or even factual. Thing is, people are different, and have different thresholds for what they consider "rude" or "offensive." If you don't want to hear any chat from people whose words you don't like, the game gives you the means to ignore them.

    Um...sense makes this does not. Please rephrase.

    Welcome to the human race. You have two options. You can either be the bigger man and ignore it, or you can react and let their actions rule over you. One is healthy, the other is not. You can no more control other people than you can the stars in the sky.
  12. Proposed Consumable: Sabotage

    Right, because the solution to beating a dead horse is definitely to whack it even harder, and with bigger things!
