For everyone reading, I am a part of Engaged Esports, formerly known as Draconic Force. I go by Xanthos and I have posted many times here and on the Reddit, explaining my views on different matters and my personal opinions as well aa offering free tips and coaching to people. I spend hours working with Helix Gamer League a week trying to promote a competitive scene. I talk reguarly with people who want to this game to grow, casually and competitively whether those people are Gearbox Employees, Casual Players or Competitive players or the hard working people who set up tournaments for the community.
This post is absolutely apalling. It actually disgusts me because I have been supporting this game since it was released in Game Informer back in 2014. This community that I have been a part ofand actively participating within since the beginning of this year after playing the CTT. The game and community that I was hyping my friends to come try and purchase during the Open Beta. I feel like I have been slapped in the face.
Any of you can hop in to Goochs stream every single day and see for yourselves how devoted this man is to seeing this game grow. He is one of the most chill and relaxed people I have ever met in my life. He plays with viewers, answers questions from his chat and tries to give everyone playing with him a good time. A little glimpse of what a high level player looks like. Instead of helping to support a person who is trying to grow the game we all are playing, you, the community are bashing him for playing the game how it is meant to be played.
In The Competitive and Other queue they released day 2, we stomp people. I can post pictures of 500-10, 500-30, 500-80s. This isnt a rare occurence either. This is 48/50 games. In the queues that are supposed to be a competitive setting. Now we sit in queues for 30 minutes or longer to find a game and within 10 minutes the game has been decided due to us stomping and winning by points or us stomping and the enemy team having players quit the match. Mind you, this isnt even with our full 5 man team playing together. At most its 3 of us, maybe for a hour, 4 of us.
So we go to Casual because at least we can get quicker queues. They all end the same anyways. Stomps. So tell me, Slif, what should we play when we cause people to surrender or leave the match in the middle of the game in all 3 modes? Should we play the mode that has us wait 30 minutes for a match or the mode that has us wait 3 minutes for a match.
You believe us spawn camping people is bad and horrible and we should be banned for it? Its a competitive multiplayer game. Even in Casual queue, the objective is to win the game. Why wouldnt we do everything in our power to win the game? I dont enjoy stomping people or teams. I hate it because i zone out and am not really focused on what is going on in front of me. I would love to have close games every single match. Right now that isnt feasible so we play the Mode that has the highest chance of us finding a game in the quickest amount of time possible.
