Good Games/ Bad Games Thread

Postby Oolong » 26 May 2009, 23:04

To take an idea from srk, I think a thread like this could be useful. Not that I'd want to necessarily call anyone out for a bad game since disconnects have no real consequence, but a good game thread may help build the community.

I had some great matches with neoken360 via the irc channel over at efnet. It was fun trying some cc, but Grys obviously isn't equipped to deal with AphB in that department. At any rate, we had some great matches.

Bad may be misleading, but I have finally been bitched at by a player named Shadow Sheldon. I was using Angelan at the time, and after I beat him, he called me a cheater, and told me to use someone else. Interestingly enough, I saw a thread devoted to this guy at gamefaqs, so I should probably leave him be ;)

I've seen that Shadow Sheldon guy. Been trying to get a match with him since he's got good ping. Maybe I'll avoid him now.

Anyway, good idea with this thread. I've been thinking about setting up a Post-game Thread of sorts where you can talk about the matches you had that night, but it looks like you've beaten me to it!

Good games today to Schooly_D, neoKEN, infinite se7en, and baddudestryker! I didn't get a chance to play with you, velocity7 :-(

The rest of you guys, invite me to your XBL Party and Let's Voot.

I'm pretty sure he was some sergeant, but his win/loss was pretty bad. Match wasn't terrible, but I can do without the whining.

I've played against him, too. In one match he missed with a surfing ram so I did a jump cancel and hit him with a standing RW. He sent me a message saying that I had no honor shooting him in the back like that. :roll:

I got a message from a Japanese player once, which of course I can't read. I'm kind of curious about what it says, especially since I don't remember the match at all.

As far as good matches go, I always have fun against Zaarock. The 7 hour time difference sucks, though.

Try running it through Google translate. The one time I got a message from a Japanese player, it translated to "THANK YOU PLAY." So it might just be the guy saying GG.

I also laughed at the translation. That silly Google.

Had my first 2 online matches just a while ago. While I can't tell much about the Angelan battle since I'm not sure if it was bad connection, but she could barely hit me at all (or maybe that's because I was fizzing around above her as Cypher :p), but the player match against a 10/80 was awesome, I mean, instead of relying on his RW/LW as his main offense, he was incredibly skillful with Dash CCs; caught me off guard quite a couple of time. Though I was lucky enough to be using Bal, so I shot him in the back with some half-reflect lasers >_< I'm such a jerk, haha.

x DoomHunter x always makes me feel like I'm playing Radiant Silvergun with the amount of stuff he throws out with Angelan. It always catches me off guard because I just never get it in my head to use the terrain to my advantage so I try and dodge all of it only to get nicked by stuff here and there. Definitely a work out, hehe.

He crushed me the few times I played against him. I used to think Fei was the hardest VR to land a hit on, not anymore (for Specineff, at least).

Had fun trying, though. :)

There is something semi-broken on my ISP's network, and they are having a hard time finding and fixing it. :( It's driving me crazy!

Don't they know who you are?!

Anyway, had some great games tonight. Kuroilupin and I kept going the distance and Sasuraigar (I don't think he's on this forum but I know some of you have played him) rattled me with his Fei-Yen.

Someone did ragequit against me, though. SicilianMinx is his gamertag. I took the first round and when I hit him with a RTCW (which I have affectionately named "The Gamechanger") in the second round, he promptly disconnected. Too bad -- one less person to join the community.

Thanks for annihilating me, everybody! :D You guys are a lot better than the random people I play in ranked matches (where I spend most of my time).

My only gripe was that my match against velocity7 was really laggy (despite having 2 or 3 bars); it was pretty hard to play. I lost my XBLA connection right after the match and had to restart my router, so it must have been something on my end.

That GT is familiar, I know I've played against that guy a few times. I don't remember having any problems, although I don't remember the matches at all really.

Eh, you can't blame him too much, Cypher's RTCW is quite annoying. Actually I find it is useful as a reminder to stay around mid-range. :) Plus it's quite fun to see it sail over my head with no effort spent avoiding it!

Yeah Schooly D, that was some good matches we had yesterday.......Straight up RAWWW!
I also versed sandsfel....good matches also with him too.....and a bunch of JPN players to finish off the night.

But yeah, about the ragequit...someone also did the same to me after the 4th/5th match....and had the NERVE to say that I was so-called "unsporting" and "Aggressive"......COME-ON NOW!

I mean, define me what "Unsporting" or being "TOO Aggressive" is in VOOT.
I am respectful to all players, and if I did something wrong, then let me know.
Otherwise...their inmature b/c I stole their precious wins....LOL..^_^

You know what else is annoying? Paper-thin armor, the weakest in the game.

There's no such thing as being "too aggressive" in Voot. It's about "attacking" the other player, why would you "not" be somewhat aggressive?

As far as your case, we'd call him a scrub, or just whiny 5 year old (or however old he/she really is, don't care)

I'll send friend requests to people I beat, and people who own me. I figure if someones better than me, that that makes for very good practice at getting better.
