So last night was my first night where I just ran into a bunch of toxic players for the first time. I would like to first apologize to anybody out there I may have doubted when they said they just kept running into trolls. I now believe you.
I have had this since launch and have been playing a ton. I play on the Xbox and was actually surprised at how few issues I ran into regarding crappy people. Sure you’d run into noobs once and a while but everyone was a noob once! Other than one instance where we ran into a pair of guys that were clearly trolling. One was the monster and the other a trapper, there was no denying it, clearly intentional missed domes, jumping into tyrants. They even met up in the middle of the map and just chilled for a moment.
Here are some of my experiences from last night:
Salty like a Pretzel
Well last night I was playing Evac as the monster. First round Hunt on Fusion Plant and I played Wraith. I was working on my Supernova mastery and this team was good at keeping the pressure on. There was a dome or 2 where I skirted and Decoyed. I ended up winning Stage 3 at the relay and then got some “fan mail” from one of the guys in the lobby. It was less than pleasant to say the least. After killing them off in Nest in about 3 min he rage quit and that was the end of it.
Later I was in a match where we had a Laz that stood there and watched out trapper die and even then, waited a bit before reviving him, costing us time chasing down a Wraith. I sent him a message letting him know that he could use the device on incapped players as well. The rest of the match he refused to heal burst and continued to swap between items while teammates bled out.
Finally I was in a lobby with a bunch of level 40’s when a Trapper was throwing domes that were missing but it was taking them a little longer to take it down. We ended up stomping the monster but the trapper kept running off, not following Daisy ect. Turns out they were only a lvl 2 (lol based Matchmaking) so all was forgiven.
TL;DR What’s your thoughts on Trolls and Noobs? Any funny stories or things that make you lose faith in the human race? Feel free to vent if you want but please, no call-outs!
