I can’t be the only one. I KNOW I’m not the only one. Some of you have to be like me. You’re more hard-core than the average player but you’re not elite enough for the sooper serius tournament crowd. You like to perform well, but when things go to shit, you’re more likely to think it’s funny than to get mad. You encourage teamwork, but if your teammates make stupid mistakes it’s no big deal. You know that Cabot is more optimal for a certain situation than Bucket, but you pick Bucket anyway because he’s a frickin’ robot and that trumps everything. You sometimes wish the hunters had a dance emote. The casual players think you’re uber 1337, but the serious players think you’re a noob. You’re shocked by how much the casuals don’t understand about the game, but you’re also irritated at the elitism and snobbery of the serious players. You fall between the cracks of the community and drift between the two crowds, enjoying the challenge of facing off against the “real” players, but also enjoying wiping the floor with the casuals.
I’m not sure I really have a point here, I just feel like this with most games and the recent beta really brought this to my attention again, and I thought maybe at least one or two other people might feel better knowing that they’re not the only ones. We’re a minority group that’s hard to cater to and so we have a hard time finding our place. It’s good for the serious players to understand, too, because they end up playing with/against us sometimes and get mad when we’re not up to their standards. Don’t get mad, we really aren’t noobs. Take it in stride and tell us what you think would have been a better move so we can up our game the next time that situation comes up.
