Everyone always tells me that the results don't matter in this game, as long as you have fun it's ok.

What kind of fun can be had from this kind of mediocrity?

Does the crowd in a comedy show have more fun just laughing than the comedian that pulled off a great show with the jokes he created?

Does the kid who falls off his bike repeatedly learning a trick have more fun than that same kid who pulls it off later?

The clear answer is no. If your stated goal is fun, success should be what you're after.

It takes effort, but the effort is in changing your attitude.

Step 1:

Accept that everything is your fault

This is probably the hardest part. Did you get killed because your allies couldn't spot a ship shooting at you from stealth, or did you get killed because you moved too far up ahead and out of position? Accept responsibility for your actions.

Step 2:

Learn from your mistakes

The key word here is learn. Just because you recognize a mistake, doesn't mean you learned from it. Figure out what would have been better and put it into practice, and not give some lame excuse like 'I forgot'.

Step 3:

Pursue fun through the success of your self improvement.

That's it. I'm not saying you have to be a super unicum ever, but you can strive for it. Set goals, meet them, set new ones. The better you become, the more pride you can take in your result, and the more fun you will get as a result with this attitude.

Many of you I'm sure dislike us intensely because of our antics. That's fine, not everyone will adopt a winning attitude and instead sit on the sidelines casting their distaste. Or they will try to behavior police you because it makes them feel better about themselves. At the end of the day, their opinions of us will mean as little as our personal achievements here. We'll leave here with our success breeding attitude and they will leave with the hot air from their constant finger wagging. 

Do yourself a favor. Don't accept mediocrity in anything, or you may end up accepting mediocrity in everything.

 

What my fun looks like.

I acknowledge that I mess up a lot, but there are times that this game just absolutely makes it impossible to have fun. 

 

I am sick of the RNG in this game that seems so one sides. You can not have fun if the game is going against you.

 

Potato proof BBs are making the game ridiculous at high tier, lets kite and spam HE and if we show our side so be it because the citadel cant be hit.

See, thats it right there. Blaming RNG. No, you can't control it, but posting it up as the reason for your troubles gets you nowhere.

I think the description of "Self-determination and responsibility" better fits as the tagline rather than "a winning attitude" but that is just means to an end to describing an otherwise valid point.

 

Your statistics are, well, yours for a reason. Because YOU made them, so you have control over them. Your actions are your actions. Even when MM deals you a less-than-favorable hand, your guns don't stop working because of it, get out there and shoot the red ships!

Are you dumb? - You've just thrown away Step 1 - Accept that everything is your fault

You obviously didn't explain yourself well enough and when someone asked a question you answered with hostility. If you Want to MAXIMIZE your FUN levels then please follow your own steps.

 

Please: Learn from your mistakes

drop the hostility and: Pursue fun through the success of your self improvement :Smile_honoring:

I can feel how giddy you got from here when you thought about how clever this would be.

Nope, just how silly it seemed that you ignore your own guidance.

Bro, chill, it's just the internet. Like, for real man, no need to get mad at anyone or call someone out. If you think they are wrong, take pleasure in laughing and move on.

Lol, I am chilled. I just pointed out something that I thought was funny - someone saying 'accept that everything is your fault', and then calling someone else dumb.

Sorry if you didn't get the irony - I thought it was funny.

Oh i see, you're just taking the heading out of context from the situation it was describing. Pretty dumb.

Oh no, it's a little more than that. You see you talk about the 'frame of mind' in which people approach the game and how it is best to approach things with 3 easy steps.

 

I see now that you don't adopt this frame of mind in general and are quite quick to call people dumb when you feel they make a mistake - only problem is, it makes me think it is highly likely you take the same attitude into your games. Which makes me think you are pulling the 'do as I preach - but not what I do'.

 

Of course, I could be wrong and people reading your reactions on this thread can make their own minds up. (Hey, I REALLY could be wrong lol).

"I have now reigned above fifty years in victory or peace, beloved by my subjects, dreaded by my enemies, and respected by my allies. Riches and honours, power and pleasure, have waited on my call, nor does any earthly blessing appear to have been wanting to my felicity. In this situation, I have diligently numbered the days of pure and genuine happiness which have fallen to my lot: they amount to fourteen." -- Abdalrahman III, ruler of Cordoba, ca. 950 AD

<-------owns the title potato

 

Solid post and good practical advice.  I have learned that my learning curve is a bit steeper than others.  I trudge along at my own slow pace.

 

Kind of goes with the statement, you cannot control the actions of others, you can only control your own.
