I’d post this in SF4 forum but don’t have a high enough post count this is more of a general fighting game question anyway so hopefully won’t get flamed.
I’m not sure if this has been discussed already or if I’m just making up my own rules but to me it seems unsportsmanlike to kick another player (unless for bad connection, trash talking etc) to prevent yourself from losing.
Long story short, played this dude who used a character I wasn’t familiar with. So was beating me until I figured out an effective counter. Since he was just spamming the same move, I’d spam the counter (a well timed throw) and would make him pay. I still wasn’t 100% so he pulled off the win but just barely.
I was all set to play him again and really open a can of whoops ass but once back in the lobby he called me cheap and kicked me. . . WTF?
Ok so regardless of being kicked for being “cheap”, and maybe i’m just making up my own rules here . . . but I don’t kick anyone as long as they want to keep playing, have a decent connection and aren’t trash talkers.
