Welcome to the internet.
I agree with you.
I miss the old days of the arcades when people and the player communities were more… real.
That said, I do enjoy the convenience and diversity of the net.
Yeah, I call these types a “waste of time”.
Lots of bad players have no sense of perspective.
Instead of understanding they are losing because they are bad, they instead rationalize that they are losing because of… well, EVERY OTHER REASON IN THE WORLD OTHER THAN THAT THEY ARE BAD.
If you enjoy playing these types, have at it.
Otherwise, just ignore and/or avoid them.
Who were these peeps?
XBLA HF spillover?
I have muted Dekor and a few others because they were a waste of my time.
Most players that attack others are bad.
And there are VERY few players who are REALLY good who are venomous.
Build out your “friends list” and play with them:
- better players
- better attitude
If you stick with mostly GGPO, just make your own friends list in Excel or Notepad and use that to screen matches.
Also, you’re in SD, right?
Kuroppi, Fatboy, Megaman, MiloDC, myself, and others meet up once in a while for some offline SF play.
Mostly HDR and SF4, but Fatboy loves ST, and most of us would be down for ST action if you prefer it.
