      Well it is bullshit though. What the fuck is the point of playing if theres no pay off? The payoff is the potential of winning. When you quit mid game you just put in a bunch of your time for what is now guaranteed zero payoff. It's like going to the store, buying ingredients, getting home, be halfway through cooking it, get a call from your mom because she needs help moving a cabinet, and so you just take everything you worked on the last hour preparing, and throw it in the fucking trash.

              Most people don't want to think, they want to follow orders. Most people will allow themselves to be severely abused and others will let the abuse continue as long as they think there is a sliver of justice in it (calling someone a dumb cunt and kicking them from the raid for failing a mechanic for example). You have to be careful to not let yourself become abusive and self-righteous. When everything is failing horribly, it is on you, not on others, to pick up the reins and bring everyone together. Becoming one of the best pvp players on my server was a road of perseverance and self-control, since plenty of people try taunting tactics to get under your skin. Becoming popular in the community taught me to keep myself in check. I am as much of a fraud as everyone else, I just failed more times into the success. Seeing it all through the social aspect of the game, being hailed on a pedestal and looked up to, it made me realize how fucked up we all are. We should uplift others, not laugh at them (for example I am 6'4 but I will never laugh at manlets).

            I can't believe this is a fucking wild concept. If I want my kid to read, I would give him discworld. If I want him to be Ganker, I give him a basketball. Why would you give your kid a gaming system, if you don't want to be a big gamer?
            He could have just not given you a PS. Instead he rages that (you're not a fault btw, I just want to say based on his perspective) you're playing games and not listening to him, then gives you a PS anyways, thus (again, his perspective, not yours) making you a more addicted gamer.

            Learn how to hunt. It's really about masking your odor and waiting on a tree next to a pile of food with bow ready for days. You just have to practice. Much easier if you have a gun as the effective ranges increase 10x and you can actively stalk without significant skill. Freezing temperatures are best because the meat won't spoil when left outside, bears hibernate, no flies or mosquitoes. Single moose can feed a family for entire winter.

          It is but it's kinda impossible.
          People who say that haven't lived in a police state. Unless you can actually convince the majority to go out with you on the streets in a major city, it's just asking the police to put you behind the bars for a while, as they did for the last 20 protests.
          And propaganda makes it really hard to get the majority to agree with you on anything. If they're not brainwashed, then they're scared.

        Not showing up when you get a written notice is literally an administrative fine of 3000 rubles. Unless they changed that but I haven't heard of them doing that.
        Maybe just don't show up, I don't think you get a criminal case until you actually get into mobilization center.

        Wasn't it only a single border control point? I think you could try leaving through others, though you'll probably have to spend quite a lot of time on the train.
        Or if you're talking about Kazakhstan returning evading people, it's only if you got a criminal case against you somehow. Which you probably won't get until they actually see you in mobilization center.
        If it's really impossible, say because you're in the border cross blacklist already, I would say rent a flat in another city somehow and don't tell anybody you are there. And see if they can find you.
        It's Russian army evasion 101, people have been doing it for decades. I dunno, maybe my information is old and it doesn't work in this particular case for some reason, but are you sure it doesn't?

    It's weird how people act like competitive games were forced onto consumers by garden gnomes or some shit. Early multiplayer fps was doom and quake and people played competitively. Sure eventually people made fun gamemodes like ice tag and shit but the general consensus among gamers were that they wanted games that were more competitive, eventually games like CS came out which shifted the landscape sure but it's not like arena shooters died a steady amount came out, no one played Q4 because it was bad though, they didn't play it because gamers just didn't want to play it. So now that the consensus has shifted from competitive arena shooters to more relaxed casual games like cs and half life deathmatch and fun gamemode it'd seem like gamers would want these casual games right, but now in 2022 gamers only want hard competitive games. But it's not like those casual games died either, trouble in terrorist town or party game modes simply grew from their fps roots. Among Us is basically TITT, Fall Guys is basically just fleshed versions of party games people hosted on servers, custom halo matches are still alive with the MCC, and TF2 is still a thriving game with both casual and competitive scenes. I'm not sure what I'm getting at here besides, it's not black and white and neither subgenres were forced out, people just started playing more of what they found fun I guess

      modern competitive modes force players to stay by penalizing them if they leave. And there's also a ranking system too. all of this contributes to a more toxic multiplayer experience.

      • 2 months ago
        Anonymous

        The ranking system is actually the least relevant factor in why modern multiplayer is dogshit.

        The players you play with are now disposable.

        There is no social factor at all, the people you play with or against might as well be fucking bots, there are no rivalries, no clan banter, no friendships to be made or lost, nothing fucking happens in the game outside of winning or losing, and then you do it all over again with another bunch of cutouts that are given to you and thrown away like they are nothing.

          Naraka Bladepoint (melee fighting game BR) feels somewhat social.

          - Playing with friends is incentivized with quests. You could say it's fake interaction, but it creates a ground for real interaction. Recently they added a Justice Chamber system with special quests and rewards for a max 8 group.
          - There's an intimacy system with stats with people you've partied up with a lot, and a greetings system where you can greet 5 friends per day for tiny reward, useless but nice gesture or to signal that you are online (there's also a status indicator of whether your friend is online, matchmaking, in a party or in a custom game).
          - In-game, Good emote and emote bubbles help a ton. They lean mostly to the funny side, making interactions fun, there are a few toxic ones too. You can do a lot with just character movement. Good character customization helps expressing yourself.
          - The playerbase is (currently) small enough that you'll run into same people all the time, who you can interact with in pre-game lobby.
          - You can create custom rooms where you can invite friends or open for all, and while it's not on the level of server browser games, there's a culture of 1v1 or more in deathmatch mode with a certain gentleman ruleset, for raw 1v1 practice.
          - There are community clans with name tags.

          Actually makes me slightly regret being a loner queuing up to Solo all day.

              Melee is the main combat mechanic, shooting is very situational and even unnecessary, since you can grapple into melee (grappling and melee is 180 degrees auto aimed), you don't need to be good at shooters.

              In terms of ranked/competitive systems, ranked is basically the default game mode, however the matchmaking is pretty loose, you'll get into all kinds of games, does not feel like League of Legends. If you are insecure about your rank, it can be rough.

              However, after Xbox release it seems to have gained a casual following, (reddit content has turned super casual), and overall the systems make it seem like it would be fun with friends even casually. The environments and graphics are very nice on top of the social systems, creating good experiences and memories. On the other hand, there are complaints from casual players how they get beaten by sweat lords ruining their fun.

              The dark secret is that noobs will get matched against bots a lot, which makes you and your party feel like you are god of the game. Also, Xbox/gamepass ranked works differently, giving you easy points and more bot games than on Steam, it's basically just really casual and almost anyone can get max rank by grinding. On Steam it's real ranked elo rating. Oh, and there is crossplay despite different leaderboards. On Xbox/gamepass it has settings to adjust crossplay which can lead to more bot games or more Steam sweat lobbies, on Steam there's no choice.

              Forgot to mention, a few months ago there was open testing for a PvE "MMO raid" mode called Showdown with its own progression system and difficulty levels, you need to work as a team against strong enemies. It was kinda fun trying to survive against waves of enemies together, again, probably fun with friends. Though they haven't announced when it's coming out for real.

          This so much. I hate how easy it is to complain about being stuck with shitty team compositions in a team based competative mode yet whenever I try to communicate or coordinate with basic callouts or strats people simply ignore and keep getting shit on. If just one person joined me in some "cooperative pushes" then the win is almost guaranteed since the mindless mobs will follow us. But no. everyone acts like a fucking bot and makes the same mistakes all match like they were programmed to do that. It's insufferable.

          The last experience like this I had was with guild wars 2. Dropped the game just before the first xpac, so i dont know what its like now, but the realm vs realm stuff was fun. The meta was centered around guilds forming and zerging across the map, capping resource points. It could get really laggy when the map got over crowded, but when you get together with your guild at a time where there werent too many people but still enough enemy players to compete with you, it is was real damn kino. Rolling around with your homies, causing trouble, sizing up enemy zergs and debating engagement strategies over discord. Syncing a few ults at just the right time and wiping out a dozen players in a matter of moments. It was a lot of fun. I was also lucky to find a guild that wasnt a bunch of cunts.

          I do have a dad. He’s just the most disgusting and vile creature you’ll meet. Imagine having a dad who has had a “shitting incident”? Well my dad has had multiple “shitting incidents” and he’s not even in his 60s yet.
          He shat in a urinal in a cheap hotel while I watched, shat in a parking lot, shot on the walls of my grandma’s house, shat on the ceiling at a walmart, shat in the shower of economical hotel at Disney which I was also taking a shit, and shat on someone yard (somehow we were never banned from Walmart or the hotel next to the Atlantis).
          He also tried abandoning me as a child, beat me and kicked me out of the house, and more batshit insane stuff.
          Having no father would genuinely be better than having my dad.

        Did your parents did anything more than vote? They have no political power, stop projecting

      Honoring someone does not mean serving them. If your parents told you to commit a mortal sin, would you do it?

        no honoring just seems to mean shutting the fuck up and doing what you're told at all times
        totally different

    My mom said "you better stop playing games before I raise hell" when I ask her about this.
    Her final quote, when I ask her what's her opinion about Ganker is "they're low lives who don't have a life"

          Single mothers ruined a generation of boys. Then there are the feminist mothers who's husbands were too broken to leave. Women cannot raise a man alone, its just that simple.

    When my mom was alive I definitely did this, I would just leave and drop whatever I was playing to help her. I practiced it with my lover too. I started dating a gamer and they do not do that for me and it is the most infuriating fucking thing. Put down your stupid game and give me attention.

      God you sound like a woman, always going on about the "stupid game" when I'm just trying to use my computer for anything else but games. No no no you just need attention ALL the time huh? You are the type of bitch that sends multiple short messages, blowing my phone up every second. When I think you're done messaging me and I close my phone, my phone up and vibrates again!! Dumbass bitch, needing me to do literally anything while your dumbass sits on Tiktok all day. Type of bitch to need me to bat a cat away because you decided to eat in front of them and didn't consider that feeding a cat in the past means they will come back for more.
      You're only good for sex and making me feel good. Nothing more. Fuck you.

    >mom opens door
    >"hey anon, you online?"
    >if im not, i tell her no and give her my undivided attention and see what she needs/want
    >if i am, just tell her yea and she goes "ok when your done i need you in the living room/kitchen/etc"

    i guess it also helps i dont play fucking ASSgayS anymore and i mostly stick to fighting games for online play, so matches only take a minute or two, maybe 4 minutes up most on FighterZ

    People who don't quit their game to help family or their lover are subhuman garbage. Get over your gaming addiction.

    Your parents don't understand videogames or the social contract involved in modern matchmaking and become angry, exasperated, and confused if you don't drop what you're doing to help no matter what it is
    >Woke
    Your parents understand that you don't want to waste the time of others and mean to help as soon as you're able, and likewise, you communicate with each other to better ensure that you don't start a lengthy game at a time where they might need help (Unless it's too sudden to be helped)

    I don't play competitive games because a) I don't care enough to put that much effort into one thing and b) online cheating is completely out of control now, judging by active players vs ban numbers of games that publish that data it could be just shy of the 10% mark at any particular time, varying by game.
