Been playing monster exclusively tonight. Just Meatbath being Meaty, trying to get some leveling done. Win some, lose some. Some I lose head up just being sloppy, but occasionally due to a team that talks to each other, ropes me in and holds the spread. Don’t mind that so much. You know it when you see it because it looks like you’re trying to squish the Ghostbusters. I get dropped by superior players and it’s gg all around. Learn something new every time and I’m relieved when it’s not due to cheating.
But the cheating.
No one’s dome locked me tonight, but this crap I’m seeing with hunters and infinite jetpack, or being slowed from impossible distances through solid rock?
I mean, c’mon.
Someone’s gotta do something. This shit is fucking up my chi.
It’s not enough that I’m being caught by a single hunter faster than I can even make sense of it, especially when I’m leaving a spotty trail, at best, but seriously, it’s not even like they’re trying to hide it since there’s no real repercussions. I’m not just saying it because I’m domed so fast either. Yeah, I’m being slow with my early eating, I’m the asshole, sometimes it happens and I deserve it. No, I’m talking about the level 16 with the blown out hunter that stays in the air impossibly long and literally vanishes in front of my face when I won’t let up on them. Or when the same hunter manages to keep up with me after I blast out of a dome like I got shot out of a lubed up cannon, leaving two downed hunters in my wake and using every escape method Meaty has in his arsenal, which is considerable when you get that he can pretty much cover 1/4 of the map in a go if the cooldowns are up.
But even having said all that, I ain’t mad. I’m not mad mad at the devs, not mad at the game or bitching about a rebalance. I don’t stop playing monster or trash talk when I get wrecked. Yeah, I’ll tell them how neat it is when bullets come out of the wall or when jetpack fuel is infinite just to let them know that yeah, I see that shit, you ain’t foolin’ no one, but at no point am I naive enough to think anything I say or do will suddenly change shitty people into honest ones. If anything, I’d ask the people that see a cheater on their team to say something, but I can’ t hold out for that either, even though it’s going to be kind of tough to keep that cheating shit going if every teammate you have bitches at you constantly.
But even then, if you all just white knighted for old Meatbath, the man-eating monster you need to kill to advance, if you all left the match and it was just me, the cheater and a bunch of bots, well, even then, the cheater would still win considering that bots wind up being more lethal than players when they’re present in numbers.
Whatever, just saying, this shit’s weak, and with no real consequences, name and shame being banned on the boards and even reporting a cheating player being way, way too complicated right now, I might as well just go back to running around the slush in The Division, falling asleep at my keyboard, only snapping to when the noise of getting ganked by screaming Russian kids on ADD meds with open mics blasts through my headphones. Given, I’d rather shave my head with a potato peeler than do that, but least they’re zero tolerance with the cheating now.
I’d rather play a boring game with meth-fueled maniacs that can’t cheat than the best game out with half the matches I’m in being ruined by this shit.
