What is it about your opponents, or just fighting games in general, that can really set you off? For me, it’s taunting. I’m a pretty casual fighting game player atm so i’m also pretty terrible. I hate it when I go up against someone who obviously knows what they are doing, they start owning me, then they taunt. It’s like “really dude? it’s obvious you’re way better no need to taunt”.
I don’t really get that upset when I lose. I mean, I want to win and I try to win, but if I lose, I lose. The taunting thing though…idk why it just really grinds my gears lol.
I’m pretty good at most fighters so I win alot and use many character in fighters I really enjoy. The point is I usually do very well against anybody and when playing with friends I sometimes pick character I kinda like but not enough to learn beyond a basic level. My friends tend to be good players because playing with people I almost always beat makes beat feel like a bully.
Anyway what grinds my gears is when my friends are playing their main or one of them and they beat me when I’m using a mess around character then talk crap. Even jokingly I’ll get a little salty, it’s like “how many times have we played together? YOU KNOW I don’t take that character seriously you jerkoff stop laughing!!!”
It’s weird because if I play my main characters lose then get taunted I’m like “good game man I’m so very happy your getting better” but if it’s my goofy character and get taunted Im like “FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU STICK IT UP YOUR ASS BITCH I HATE THIS GAME!!! THIS WHY IT WON"T BE AT EVO NEXT YEAR CAN"T WAIT FOR THE SEQUEL> GOD THIS GAME SUCKS!!!”
Ahh yes I also hate the ones that ragequit after you beat them once. Like one time I played this guy about 5 times and he was winning but I was kinda figuring him out and then on the sixth time i’m able to beat him and he leaves. that is also annoying.
people complaining about “cheap” tactics and “cheap” characters
i have some friends that are actually good at fighting games, but are very scrubby when it comes about how they keep whining about stuff, like sentinel, hulk, tager
despite not being the best of the chars on their games
oh this is perfect time for me to vent about this!
One thing thats been annouying me is how my opponents worrying about me playing one character. Their were time where my opponent would be upset with me playing my usual character. I never understood why they worry over it and when i asked them they say “Its boring”. I even had a long annoying argument with one. (apparently I was being selfish by not agreeing with his ideas)
well either way i think its stupid for these player to worry about you opponents antics. They are free to do what they want, in the need we only control our own shadows.
