Peoples are already surrendering too much. Of the 3 times I had a 4vs5 yesterday, 3 times we kept playing, we won twice, and the last time we lost from the 30 minutes ’ timer mark ending the game, so definitely not crushed.
And that’s only talking about the 4vs5’s case.
Peoples surrender far too fast. Most of them don’t seem to realize that some battleborn are better late game whereas other are good early game. If I play as Reyna as the only support for my team, I know very well that my level 4-5 are game-changers for my team. So I don’t care about being dominated at the beginning. it can change later on.
I’ve seen people surrendering at the 6 minute mark with like 92-90 in incursion and a slight difference in kills. What the HELL?
Just to say, players cannot get better with only “winning battles”. When everything goes well, you’re probably dominating level wise, skill wise to begin with. You’re not striving to do anything.
By fighting “losing battles” where you need to do your best to overcome the difference with the opposite team (losing to score, or outnumbered, and so on) you will gain far more playing experience than by surrendering right away.
WIth that rematch option, you often play with the same peoples several times as long as you win. I’ve seen peoples happily crushing the enemy, and then at the first time we were not doing well at the beginning “omg let’s surrender” right away.
O M G but stop that already.
Be a nasty player that don’t surrender. Not just a mere battleborn, but a battlestubborn. Be proud of every single of your kill when you’re outnumbered and don’t forget to taunt them when it’s safe, too. you downed their first sentry? Your team eliminated most of the enemies? Hah! serves them right!
You know, there’s nothing better than a good 4vs5 battle (even lost at the end) to make new gaming friends in BB. Because that feels good every time one of your teammate is doing great despite the odds. Because everyone felt really nice about battling all long, together, and making the opposite team’s life as hard as possible, punishing every single cocky player who thought that it would be easy to kill the opponent at 4vs5 and overextended too much.
This is from experience. I’ve also seen a team starting a game at 4 vs5, then after a while the 5th player actually reconnected (so he didn’t actually leave intentionally), and it’s on the opposite side that a player disconnected (this time for good), transforming a 4vs5 in a 5vs4. Everything can happen as long as you don’t surrender.
So don’t surrender. And don’t forget to have fun. Because yes, you can lsoe and have fun. You’ll a far higher feeling of accomplishment every time your team does something good in those cases, and feel far better about a come back and a win when you were dominated most of the time. They dominated and they lost? hah, sucks to be them.
So , new players, welcome aboard, and don’t be like them. Break as much teeth as possible before the end of each games. Leavers, remember that a game is not lost before the end of it. Not even if you think it’s obvious.
I think GBX should make the surrender need at the very least 4 votes for it if not 5 in order to pass. You want to leave? Fine, I don’t care. I’m having them aaaall die in a fire anyway.You want to leave? Fine, I don’t care. I’m having them aaaall die in a fire anyway.
