fighting and fps gaming communities

I realize this is a bit off topic for MFC, but I'm curious what others think about this subject. I apologize in advance if anything I've written below offends anyone.

Why is it that the online community for first person shooters and fighting games have so many assholes and elitist jerks? I understand that competition plays a large part in these games, but both genres have some of the worst people I've ever come across. I can safely say that I've never been cursed out when I win a racing game, nor betrayed by my own team if I pick up a potion in an RPG. Anyone who's played a game online has certainly heard the term "noob" thrown around several times. When did this hatred and degrading mentality towards new players become the vicious thing that it is today?

Curious if others have a similar outlook, I've found and read several articles and blogs about this very subject. As you would expect, people from both genre camps naturally jumped in to curse out and degrade the various authors, writing such thoughtful things as "you just suck" and so forth. I certainly like to win at these type of games and enjoy competitive play, but I've never had the desire to have my character squat over an opponent in victory or spam the same fighting combo over and over again. I know many casual players that either hate or refuse to play either genre online simply because of the communities.

In short, they're just games. Can't we just have fun without making others feel like shit?

Hmm, I think it has a lot to do with masculinity and anonymity.

shinhawk (Il y a 4 ans) #1398574That's not spamming, that's carefully planned out strategy. It sounds like you got zoned out by a run and gun strategy and I can easily say that is one of the best ways to play Smoke. Some characters just thrive on zoning. Spamming a move simply means someone throws out a move without any strategy nor do they even expect it to hit when the move is executed.

That's not fighting. It's a cheap tactic that takes all the fun out of the game.

Zukin-Man (Il y a 4 ans) #1398454Lucky you. In ME3, I've gotten kicked for everything from supposedly "kill-stealing" while using a setup that primarily suppresses (not even kills, just holds and stuns) groups of enemies to just having a race/class that the other players didn't like.
That happened A LOT with me when i got the juggernaught i would always get kicked or something for not reviving people, sorry but they can't sprint, other team mates should be helping whilst i distract this >insert one-kill enemy here<

Zukin-Man (Il y a 4 ans) #1397649Doesn't help. You still get dickbags who will still try to find any reason to kick you. My favorites are the Novaguards who still think their method is the absolute tits and immediately either rage-quit or try to kick you if they're not at the top of the leaderboard.
Yeah i guess your right, i was playing with a group of people for about 3 games, changed class as i just unlocked it, 4th game they kicked me O_O Also you get idiots where they play higher leveled difficulties, don't stick with the team and get killed end up dying or quitting meaning we have a higher chance of losing ¬_¬

Tarkana2 (Il y a 4 ans) #1397692I got kicked out of a few gold missions when I first started playing the multiplayer, but I haven't had that issue ever since. I've found the ME multiplayer to be a great community.
One group that can be pretty rough is the Mortal Kombat 9 community. Although I've had a few enjoyable fights online here and there, most of the matches I've played were against spammers. For the most part, I can beat spammers without any trouble using Kitana / Cage, but there was one player that perfected his spamming to the point that I couldn't get around it. He played as Smoke and would only jump in the air, fire the smoke ball teleport move, and follow it up with an uppercut. He literally did nothing else and had the timing down so well, I could barely block it in time. I managed to win the second round and almost won the third. It was infuriating to deal with and really took the fun out of the game.

That Smoke honestly doesn't sound cheap from your description, but maybe it's something I would have to actually see. I figure you could just block or jump over that teleport shot and pound on him when you get close enough.

I didn't pay a whole lot online, so I didn't see this one for myself, but I heard there was a tactic where you pick a Sub-Zero/Smoke team, use the ice statue as Sub-Zero, swap out, use that shaking projectile-counter thing with Smoke, and repeat every time the statue disappears. The opponent can't move in because of the statue, and projectiles just get countered. I imagine teleporting characters would have a much easier time dealing with that, but my main team was Jax/Stryker, and there's no teleporting for them.

That's online gaming for you. People are too competitive.

I understand you completely, to be specific, when I play Halo Reach a lot of people are complete assholes they betray you for no reason, they send you hate mail for no reason, the aim of the game is to kill the other player so i don't understand people when you kill them and they get annoyed! A lot of people i used to play with in a team on Reach used to hate me for no reason, still don't understand to this day why, at least i don't play with them anymore.
Oh and don't even get me started on fighting games, i HATE playing these online, enough said. ¬_¬
Yeah... i generally try to avoid games like these, stay offline or play co-op multiplayer like Mass Effect 3 or Gears of War 3 Horde mode. Battlefield 3 is okay though ^_^
