I see quite a few posts in the forum, and rants in chat, about noob teammates. The premise is typically along the lines of "I lost because of...."

 

I just wonder how many people consider/realize how many battles they will have won because the players they berate were on the other team?

The thing is, one usually assumes how average their teammates will perform, and then try to plan around it.

 

But you can never predict the actions of poor players on your team, and you never know who is a poor player.

Or well you know, some unicums are on the other side and your team just melt easily but you aren't there so you assume they are dumb. It's easier to spot bad fruits than good fruits.

You can see who is good by looking at how they play their ships.  Of course if they are on the enemy team on the other side it would be harder to spot.

 

But in general, ships should not be melting so easily, unless they make mistakes.

 

And in this games, mistakes are made very commonly, even by skilled players.

 

There is also a difference between enemy unicums melting your team, and your own team making blatant positioning mistakes, especially *erhmm* BBs being kited and not able to contribute late game.

 

But then this is just something better players have to learn to deal with, its not like there would be some MMR for this game any time soon.

Seeing familiar names on the enemy team makes me want to automatically target them for immediate destruction.

 

Most names I remember tend to belong to good players.

 

On the flipside, everyone wants Stein dead.

I understand you see some good play and bad play. I would like to try and emphasize my original point though.

 

Essentially how many people are assuming they are a good player because they have beat up some beginners?

Define "Beginner"

 

I frankly only care about unicums on the enemy team. Anyone else will be treated normally.

Im usually have to see how that player play with my own eyes so i can tell if he/she good or not then i compare it with his/her stats so i can come up with a proper summary.

 

Even is just beat up beginners but you can tell by the way he/she beat them up professionaly or not :D:D:D

Define "Beginner"

......

 

 

Someone in a new stock boat, someone having an off game, someone simply caught out by understandable unforeseen events. Or possibly someone who just consistently plays poorly.

 

An example would be if I said I player JoeBloggs was a noob because I won 3 games in a row and yet just lost a game because of him. But what if I had only won because JoeBloggs had been on the other team? So yes he may not be the best player, which would be all the more reason not to get to high and almighty about my own skills, because how good would I need to be to beat him?

Here's another example.

 

Consider the best runner in your district. Has he every made it to the olympics? If he were the only runner he could say he was the greatest simply by jogging. Doesn't make him a good runner.

Because Stein is too OP to handle. And we always have to borrow some kryptonite shells to kill you :trollface:

 

 

Topic:-

              Well you know everyone has Freedom of speech so they can put up their opinions just like you did now. It is a Forum and you can put up your opinion.

 

And not everyone complains getting shit everyday for example look at this(sorry for that BAD DRAWING SKILLS:()

Yes there is freedom of speech. There are also chat rules that I interpret to forbid the language we are talking about. So in that light you are not allowed to put up certain opinions.

 

Also there is a difference in complaining about something as opposed to opening up a topic for discussion. As you can see there is no complaint in the OP.

None of those coincide with my definition of 'Beginner'.

 

If anything, it's just a guy in a stock ship, someone having a bad day x2 and a noob, respectively.

 

If a player consistently plays bad without improving, then they will be labeled as such.

Fair point. I couldn't come up with a better word to encompass all those things (and more) at the time.

Well you stared a post like this ^ meaning you're posting this discussion for those who are complaining about their teammates being bad. And I'm telling you that not everyone complains about getting these nice remarks and unsportsmanlike behaviour

 

Well you know talking about a complainer makes us complainer too.
