for sure guys.. either way it had the desired effect on the individual to whom it was directed. tony, and who ever else reads this, is hopefully made aware of how annoying this issue is.
since it seems i need to explain this: when dealing with a player who abuses an ingame mechanic to get ahead, there are a number of ways of dealing with the issue:
1. balance the issue out (taking forever since u guys inadvertently voted for it)
2. group together and convince the player to not abuse the system (this happens in TT games)
3. flame him
i could pick any words i wanted to, the point is to make the guy angry/frustrated etc, to bring to his attention that what he is doing is not nice, just as the words directed at him are not nice. u think he wouldve listened if i spoke nicely? even though he does this all the time, has 300+ hours so is fully aware of the game mechanics.. no it would not have had any effect, thus the flaming. maybe he will continue to do it... maybe not. it has worked in the past, it will continue to work in the future, if not on everyone.. some are too self centred to realise the effect of their actions
anyway, i have a temporary solution, whoever thinks abusing a broken mechanic like rush/spamming the unstoppable strat bombers is a valid strategy, then just let me know if i find u in ranked. i will simply surrender or AFK, so u can snipe my HQ. im serious. let me know. and depending on whether i have something else to do, ill AFK, or if im keen to play something else ill surrender.
if the ladder, or seeing "victory" on ur screen means that much then im willing to help
That verbal abuse is more likely to put off new and old players alike.
sure bro, and thats why i sent these messages to a new player..
