Well, this is probably a first for me, but for some reason two members of certain  clans felt the need to tell me I didn't know what I was doing.

In a 3k base xp game...and at the time I had already gotten two caps and 3 kills.

You know what? Some times you guys just need to shut the "you know what" up!

Even unicums aren't immune to the "need to assign blame to some external force to distract from my failure to be the hero" rationalization. Difference is, unicums are still the hero in far more games than non-unicums. 

Nevertheless, still feels good to rub it in a blamer's face.

Grats! not only did you do great, but you survived! Surviving is something that rarely happens when I drive my 'Lanta.

Been playing this game the day it came out of closed beta.    You get your average salty players from time to time.    But you will see a lot of the big clan guys who are more then likely unicum be some of the worst people in terms of chat respect.    I am not going to list clan names but many of you will see a pattern.     I constantly say "Random game with random skill try and have fun" to remind players.    Random games are not ranked or clan battles.    A good game is awesome man.    But the big overall goal it to have fun.   Give compliments to your team even if you lose.     Give props to your team who do well even on a loss.    Steam brought is bringing a lot of new blood into the game, its good to show them a good community.

I'm sure that shut them up, nice work

 

sometimes, actions speak louder than words, and yeah even unicums aren't infallible.

Even we get too salty to see the reality of the situation

Yeah I'm always amazed at how little some people know about how to play a light cruiser. When you are driving an Atlanta you have to "kite" a lot and avoid being sighted until the time and location are right. That has gotten me similar comments from the "tactical geniuses".

Thank you for carrying these sorts into an even deeper shade of purple WR.

I'm sure they appreciate your efforts.  Next time, BE ON THE OTHER TEAM.

As a unicum, you are correct. We are a perfectly normal cross section of personalities, statistics have nothing to do with disposition.

I don't know where this stigma of somehow not being just as human as anyone else came from

I had a game once where there was three full divisions of people from the same clan on my team and when we started losing they blamed everyone but themselves for it.

Real good players don't need to trash talk or demean other players, they just play well and don't need to shift blame to the opponent or their teammates.

Sometimes you play poorly but get lucky - you can rack up huge numbers due to tactical situations which on average would be detrimental to the strategic objective. I have no idea what happened in that game, but be careful not to focus purely on one result. They may have a point, or could just be mad that they got killed. Be careful that you don't discard useful advice, even during an otherwise excellent game stats wise.

Wait until he finds out that Atlanta has a base XP buff for everything it does, just like Sims.

I think everyone should blame themselves for every loss. Every time you lose there's one costant in that game. Yourself. If I lose a game, it's my fault. I think about what I could have done better afterwards, and try to apply that toy gameplay. I've done nearly 400k damage before and lost, yet upon looking back at it, if I made better decisions at the end game, we would have won. Only time you can't control not losing is if you are tk'd.

Wait till you find out the guy calling me out got his unicum stats in the Sims.

1000+ games in the Atl. I'm not the best, but I'm far from the worst. And thanks for proving my point.

I don't think he's trying to say your game was bad, but you need to realize if you had that same game in a Pensacola, with only 1 cap and 1 cap assist, it would have been like a 2100 base xp game, not a 3k base xp game. Not everyone is trying to put you down but you do come off as a bit arrogant about this game.

If i had unicom stats and belonged to a clan where I could div up with other unicom players to increase my chances of winning matches, I would not be half as salty as some of the players I see that rant about the occasional loss.

Not as arrogant as the dude with < 1000 base xp and putting the blame on his teammate

I would argue to the contrary. Indeed his exp earnings would not have been as high but he would still have proved the effect he had on the game with his Atlanta in a IX game. It's less "look how great I did" and more about proving his unicum teammates wrong by letting the post game score speak for itself.

Is the buff 78%?

Because that's how high it would have to be before he wasn't 1st place on his team in base XP. 

I don't think it's 78%. 

 

It would also have to be 117% for his game to have been inferior to the first name he blacked out, and 215% for his game to have been inferior to the second name he blacked out, whom I presume to be the guys who harassed him. I also don't think it's 117% or 215%.

LOL... ok, dude. You've completely missed the point.

This!  it was a win..it was always going to be a win at the point where they felt the need to tell me I didn't know what I was doing. There was absolutely no reason for it whatsoever!!!

yeah, I'm not saying your game was bad at all.

It's just that Atlanta and Sims has this base XP boost for everything it does.

This is why Atlanta is a popular choice for Narai. It literally prints base XP and everything attached to it.

I haven't missed the point. You proved unicums wrong by having a 3k base xp when I'm sure they proclaimed sh*t team. Good for you carrying the game. I'm not putting you down. But would you have showed this game and made this post if you only earned 2k base xp. That's why MrDeaf is trying to imply.
