Gaming General #4

This one was a hard one to pick, but needs to be discussed, regardless of circumstance.

  • Toxicity

Really, do not dwell on mistakes withing games. If you’re not relaxed enough to play, play a single player game. I’ve been on the end where I wanted to scream at the top of my lungs, as I was younger. Now? I just play to enjoy the game.

For instance:

If you get frustrated when things go south, drop the game for a few days and come back to it. On a side note, I did continue playing past this post, because I wanted to set-up the match format a bit differently. In one game I had, I had horrible teammates, which became toxic when I lost my only “teleporter” when I know I can recharge the teleporter if they hold it, and not to mention, that toxic player wasn’t doing well as Lucio, either.

Regardless, if you don’t do well, and you’re seeing a string of losses:

Gaming General #3

There’s another topic I’m willing to discuss because of not only real life working with people but in game as well.

  • Team Coordination

In Overwatch – Tanks? No need, it was 4 DPS and 1 healer (Lucio) before I picked my character. I went with Mei because her Ice Wall can block damage and I have extreme survival ability with her and stalling the payload. Once our Reaper Death Blossomed and wiped out the team, we won on Offense and held it on Defense.

Just having a sense on what’s going on and what to pick can determine the outcome. Anyway, if you want, feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments below.

 

Gaming General #2

In retrospect, this can be considered a continuation of Gaming General #1, but this needs to be addressed in a separate topic in its own.

  • Mudslinging

I cannot stress this enough. There’s zero tolerance for that behavior in both real life and online alike. What happened was people were having their own “Superiority” complex and throwing out terms that is unacceptable by any means. In one video I did, and when I do fix my Youtube channel, I’ll keep it up, because Gamebox closed Odin Quest, and it being one of my first videos I did on Youtube. Also, this came after when someone got banned for mudslinging on stream.

Anyway, if you want, feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments below.

Gaming General #1

Normally, I wouldn’t stray away from my typical update schedule, but something struck a nerve when I started gaming a bit today, and I wanted to address it as soon as I possibly could.

  • The “Superiority” Complex

On one of my streams I follow, I heard someone arrogantly state that I was wrong on several different levels about how Scarface Mansion in Payday 2 is not what I said it was. As soon as I heard that, I was extremely mad so I stated this in chat: “Are we going to continue this trolling?” after admitting I was wrong. One of the admins in chat was encouraging it a bit more, but I decided to shove it to the side and went on about the Mega Sydney mask that was given out today through e-mail on who donated to a fundraiser.

I showed it a bit on stream, but after I screwed up once, plus what happened earlier, I called it a night. I was so wound up, that I was not in the mood for playing Payday 2 tonight. This type of “Superiority” Complex is what reminded me of this video in Overwatch:

I 100% agree with what is in this video. It’s seriously time to stop the whole “Superiority” complex and have fun with the game. I also am building this blog to post helpful tips as I go through games, and you can enjoy what I find out through that. Unfortunately, I can’t record until I get my hands on a better PC, but this is a good start to what I want to achieve on my free time.

Anyway, feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments below.
