This is not a new or interesting thread but I’m going to post it anyway with intention of drawing some fun out of it - Anytime I get annoyed by something minor that is my instant reaction, to try and lighten things up.
As people may or may not know I’m as casual as they get, not able to play regularly with my community, never played an Offline match in my life, never have and likely never will ever see a tourny nevermind compete in one - Since I bought SF4 I’ve tried, with the limited playtime and poor PC/30 FPS/Keyboard Controller I have to learn and enjoy Balrog as a character - However all along my journy of learning there have been several occasions where people, win or lose, throw their hate my way. What irkes me the most is that I consider myself to be absolutely terrible at SF4 hence I can’t fathom how some people genuinely, or stupidly, believe I’m actually cheating to beat them.
Wether it’s aimed at me specifically as a player or aimed at my choice of character (Balrog surely gets a lot of hate due to his relatively high placing when it comes to low/medium level SF4) matters not - I pride myself on being a dedicated, honorable gamer who loathes and despises things such as hacks and cheats, so to be accused of using them (beit ridiculous claims or legitimate assumption) gets right up my nose.
On one occasion I had a Fei-Long player accuse me of Auto-Fire and Invincibility Hacking because my moves (HB/TAP) where going through his moves - Now THAT I can laugh at and ignore as it’s blatant ignorance to the mechanics of the game, but to be called a lag abuser on multiple occasions by varied people is starting to annoy me even though I know better than to let the rantings of online randoms get me down.
I compiled a movie containing the threat title topic, of which was sent to me after the fight in the movie - The reason being that I’m that type of person who tries to MAKE PEOPLE UNDERSTAND what it was they think was an abused ‘cheat’ and hopefully educate them into the true nature but as we all know most people capable of spouting instant hate on losses often don’t want to listen. I dunno, I may be suprised and people here might point out something I’m unaware of… Yes I use Fixed Framerates!
Seriously, can someone tell me what I abused, apart from meaty DLSx3 when I noticed he had given up in the final round? NOTE: You absolutely DO NOT have to even consider clicking the link and watching the movie to understand and take part in the thread - I’m actually very embarassed by these movies as I’m not exactly PR Balrog or MaedaTaison, I’m just a learner
So here’s the fun part, say on the above what you will but I’d like to think this thread can be used for people to tell their stories of hate-recieved, funny/serious, aimed at you as a player? Aimed at you using Balrog?
It’s not a new concept but I figure I have to make something fun out of it otherwise I’ll roll my eyes so hard I’ll be able to see the back of my own head.
