Look, I’ve been playing this game since release and I’ve been having a good time with it. I’ve never really been into MOBAs but the first person perspective allowed me to dive in as a console gamer and I’ve been having a blast. However, the one thing that absolutely sucks the joy out of the game is people who are calling for a surrender at the first sign of a push or are outright just going AFK because they’re not stomping on the other team, usually after a failed vote for surrender. I cannot express how much of an absolute killjoy players like this can be.
Players have even left the game when it’s not going their way. The developers have done their job and put in a program so that if you do that, you can’t start a new game unless you rejoin the one you left or the one you left ends. So the problem isn’t with the development of the game itself, it’s in the community. So I guess what I’m saying is that I’m not mad, guys. I’m just disappointed.
This is a great game. Don’t ruin it by being that guy/gal. If you’re falling behind, it’s not the end of the world. If you lose, who cares? It’s a game, have fun with it. Don’t ruin it for other people by being that kid who’s losing so he takes the ball and goes home.
—PS: I never post on threads like these, but this has been such a pervasive issue I felt the need to finally say something about it where people might see it. It’s now become like 1 out of every 3 games I play at least will have this happen and I don’t like that I feel like putting a game that I like down because other players are being sore losers.
