Kind of a silly question, perhaps, but with the little bit of time I’ve spent online, I’ve noticed that there’s a trend in which many players choose the character of the guy they just beat. I’ve gotten the impression it’s merely a case of “you suck; now let me show you how [insert character name here] is played.”
Do you think most folks genuinely get inspired to play the character they just beat, or are they just slinging monkey poo? It would seem like a really bad dudebro approach to online interaction.
