The recent release of Evolve and The Order 1886 really got me to thinking about the disparity between the perspective of sales-driven publishers and the quality-driven purchases of consumers. The “Hype Train” is nothing new, but the way it is utilized has been creating far more...

Revolutionary Rant: Quitters

Posted on Tuesday, November 30 @ 21:55:28 Eastern by
I was excited. It'd been quite some time since I had played GunGame and Call of Duty: Black Ops was to include the mode. I've already ranted about that particular subject, but actually going in and playing the game mode on Xbox Live got me thinking about a problem I didn't think would crop up when playing GunGame on a console instead of a PC.

Part of the problem with GunGame in Black Ops is that every match is limited to 6 players. If any of those players quit out, the match starts to get really lonely, really fast.

The same can be said of the heavily-multiplayer-focused Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit from Criterion Games. Treyarch and Criterion did a lot to balance the game and ensure that players were interacting pretty closely with each other so that nothing would get boring.

My problem isn't with the developers or the connections with other players. My problem is with you quitters out there.

What the hell is your problem? You get stuck on a weapon in GunGame and you suddenly lose all hope and refuse to persevere? You do realize that launchers, crossbows, and ballistic knives are difficult to get kills on right? There IS a possibility that you could pull a long kill streak out and come out in first, second, or third!

Try dedicating the rest of your game to knifing other players. Just because you're not gaining back your shitty-little-virtual Call of Duty pennies doesn't mean quitting is the answer. Being a sore loser just blows the time you've already invested into the match.

As much as I'd love to go back through my recent players list and give each and every one of you a bad review, I don't think your worth it. I think I'll just continue to run through you with my knife until you're in last place.

The same can be said of you pathetic humans who quit out of Hot Pursuit matches because the racers get "too far ahead." What kind of whiner babies are you? L2P for God's sake. Cops are constantly generating more boost, regardless of their reckless driving. They're also equipped with a lot more weapons to deploy against racers.

Seriously, why give up? It's not like quitting out of matches HELPS your stats. Idiots.
