WALL OF TEXT INCOMING
Not exactly hate mail, but I dont know where else to post this. There’s this guy on YouTube who reviews games and is just shy of 19,000 subscribers. In case you’re wondering, he is quite the scrub. He made a few injustice online multiplayer videos. All of them look like its day 1 of the game’s release. Anyway, in one of his videos, which is a response video of some people calling him a bad player and whatnot, he goes on at one point talking about how he refuses to play against anybody that uses deathstroke.
In fact, in that video, while talking about not wanting to fight deathstroke, talks about and demonstrates how he waits out the clock at character select if his opponent picks deathstroke in order to force him to switch.
I made 5 consecutive comments on that video, I explained as thoroughly as I could about how deathstroke is very easy to beat and how his “cheapness” is all just crazy talk. I went over the frame data on his gunshots and what it meant (which he could have looked up on his own, but whatever) as well as giving him advice to get around it using his main characters (Catwoman and Aquaman). After leaving on a friendly note, both repeating how my comments were by no means intentionally hateful (his “fans” are a bunch of ass kissers from what I’ve seen in the comments section", they would probably nitpick the hell out of my comments to try and find some insults) and wishing him the best of luck in the game, he leaves this reply:
“deathstroke’s guns DONT have a long recovery timeframe, which is what the problem is. even with catwoman’s dash you still cant get across the screen against a good deathstroke player. Im not sure if you have this game or have played it online or if your just watching videos for it… but the good (and even bad) players are abusing deathstroke and EVERYONE is complaining about it, not just me. Ive spent my fair share of time online and its definitely a problem, regardless of how good or bad i am.”
To this, I reply with something among the lines of reminding him that he needs to let himself learn. I told him to hop into training mode with a deathstroke computer shooting his guns over an over again so he can try and find ways around it.
He replies with:
“For someone leaving such a wall of text of how i need to improve, you dont really have anything to back up your own skill level other than a training video of you playing on aquaman. If your such a hotshot on the game and your claiming that anyone can beat a good player on deathstroke why is it that you dont have a single video of you playing a ranked match against a good player using deathstroke on your channel? Post a video of you beating a good player spamming on deathstroke and then talk.”
So here’s where I semi-snap. I reply:
"Ok, let me set some things straight:
- I’m just trying to help you, if you don’t want it, just say so. Don’t be a prick about it.
- I can’t record any ranked matches at the moment because I don’t have HD component cables. If I did, I would have so much delay that it wouldn’t be worth it.
- I never claimed to have godlike skills at this game, stop putting words in my mouth.
- Beating deathstroke is EASY. What’s so hard to understand?"
I don’t know why I even bothered to try and help him. Probably because watching him play made me puke in my mouth a bit and I felt the need to remedy that.
tl;dr Scrub on YouTube with more subscribers than he deserves is having trouble against deathstroke so I try and help him. He takes offense because how dare anybody think that they’re better than him, right?
Oh yeah he also thinks that he’s responsible for Aquaman’s sudden popularity because of his first impressions video. Apparently getting 8000 views on a video with horrendous gameplay in a week means that you played Aquaman before he was cool. Yeah… Scrubs will be scrubs.
I knew it. One of his ass-kissing fans replied to one of my comments:
“Just shut up! Not to butt in here but your comments are sounding like you are lecturing people on how to play the game. Deathstroke is cheap, end of story. I had this game, gave it chance. Its unbalanced and not fun online. Jump over DS’s AR, switch to pistols. Jump over pistols, wake up sword jump. Missed the sword jump, hit the super button. Just traded my copy for a good fighter game, Capcom vs SNK 2.”
I don’t know about you guys, but I think his definition of “giving the game a chance” means skipping story mode, training mode and the tutorials and just hopping straight into the online multiplayer and getting frustrated after 20 minutes of consecutive losses. 2 of them being the keepaway Deathstroke players. Just a guess, but highly probable.
