Wooooooow, really? People got THAT pissed over a fraction of a second? It'd be a bit more understandable if he changed something different like, I dunno, suddenly made one of the better weapons a piece of crap or something (yeah, I don't play CoD). I mean, I know I got pretty steamed over a graphical thing in Skyward Sword (Link has thicker lips that makes him look sooooooo weird) and I looked passed it and got over it, but something as small as that? Pfft, I wouldn't give a crap.
But it is true that the more whinier assholes gamers create bad names for those that just want to play the game. Yeah okay, Capcom's been making a shit ton mistakes with MegaMan and people are pretty pissed off (me being one), but you won't find me shooting a death threat for the cancelation of a game. I just take it with stride now. That's just really pathetic. But at least Activision took a stand and said, "Yeah, screw you."
I love the video. My favorite one I the one that says “I’m older than your mom and I still love MMORPG’s”.
The problem with some gamers is that they overact to the most trivial of things. They’re getting angry that the firing time takes a fraction of a second more? Does that even affect the damn game at all? I swear is like people are desperately trying to find an excuse to bitch about anything no matter how stupid or irrelevant it is
Just when I thought I could have a tiny speck of hope for the human race in general, not even for specifics or any real reason, it gets smothered by news like this. Death threats because a gun in a game now has a delay of fire modified by a timeframe so small you literally can't see the difference without frame by frame footage, and a refire rate that is likewise so small you barely notice it, if you even do notice it in the first place. Honestly, .04, four hundredths, of a second... It takes you more time to blink. .1, a tenth, of a second, you're done blinking by the time that moment passes. If it were say .5 instead of 0.04 and 2.2 instead of 1.1, then it might be cause for sending an email or a letter stating that you think it needs to be changed to something more reasonable, like the .04 and 1.1 delays. Where did those days go? Instead of a threat on someone's life, which should always be taken seriously, just type out a letter of frustration, or even an angry letter telling them how much you dislike them for what they did. That way, if they read it, they go 'well, this person isn't happy with me at all, just like so many others, maybe I should change it to something a little faster for them' instead of 'okay, I'm calling the cops on this guy'. I, for one, would rather be sent back an email saying 'I'm sorry you feel that way, I will consider your opinion and see what I can do' , as opposed to a police officer saying 'you have the right to remain silent, anything you say can and will be held against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney...' etc. while putting handcuffs on me.
I also don't get the mass hate in mmo's against newbies. Weren't we all newbies once? I'm sure they asked the same questions. and made the same mistakes.
Deviantart comments need an edit feature *nods*
Yeah I know. It's stupid.
I've been playing most of the games, including that one since beta, but I still help the newbies instead of just bitch at them. Everyone has to start somewhere. It's elitists like them that help kill a game as they put new people off playing them
They're also why mmo's etc keep getting made easier and easier(when Everquest 2 came out, you couldn't solo anything, you had to have groups), because the whiners are louder.
