So yeah, got a mate who’s practically my only opposition in my area. The problem he’s got is that he always blames his opponent when he loses. We’re both around average level, me being a little better winning something like 60-70% of matches. With SSF4 on its way it would be nice if he could get over this already and start looking to fix the problems with his game when he loses match after match to “scrubs” online. (Yes online sucks but when you’ve played only each other for as long as we have it’s nice with new opponents)
For instance, say he’s up against a Ken or Ryu or Sagat who does basically nothing but fireballs, jump-in roundhouse, standing fierce, dp and throws. This is no problem for me to deal with, or basically any simple pattern player but he almost always get sloppy or cracks and gets beat. Whenever this happens he throws a small tantrum and whines that “that’s all he can do, the fucking scrub/moron/idiot” or “holy fuck he’s bad” and moves on to the next opponent and next tantrum.
Am I seriously over-reacting here? Cause I’m getting pretty sick of hearing it. To me, the general rule of thumb is, if you get beat, the guy who beat you was better that time, after all, his life bar isn’t empty. If these “scrubs” are such morons how is it that they could beat me? Learn, adjust and adapt and don’t fall for stupid shit.
Alright, I’ve vented, any comments? Flames? Ignore me? Nonsensical stuff but it’s been bugging me for a long time now.
