Today I noticed that the rage thread had almost reached ten pages of despair and profanity. I think we need a solution to the salt, so please share your moments of triumph!
Today I had easily the best games I’ve had in a long time. I made an endless lobby and a German Fei Long player entered. He was very good (relative to me at least, he was 3500PP to my 2200PP by the numbers but after the first game it was clear they were well earned points) and won probably seven out of ten games. The losses didn’t leave me mad though, every victory was well earned on his part for playing correctly instead of lamely and when I did win it felt even better.
Following that a Ryu player rocked up, similarly played very well. I think I won four out of five, all very good games.
The thing that topped it off was that I received a message from both players afterwards complimenting my Makoto. Very nice feeling indeed, given how a lot of the time when the ‘____ sent you a message’ pops up it’s salty trash talk!
