Thread: Idiots without a clue

Idiots without a clue

  1. #26
    I'm 400 years old, never get anything wrong, and know every game control inside out, even before a demo is released.

    As for the noob-ish behaviour (by the sounds of it, I'm a soon-to-be PC player here), that will be filtered out as the player base becomes more concentrated with regular users.

    Right now, everyone wants a go because it's a great looking (and playing!) game that has been marketed well. So some tolerance of non-godly creatures is necessary.

    The retail copy should do a good job of separating the jackasses from the people who want to play the game the way it was intended. Those that don't like it and are using the demo to ruin eveyone elses fun will have to pay $60 do continue to do so. Another reason to get excited for the retail copy!

    here here, that has got to be the truest thing i have read in this topic. i didnt realise what i was doing the first time i played it, but my mate helped me, and now me and him have great 2 on 2 battles (we do 2 on 2 because then we can private chat, instead of having people just sending their units into battle to get killed, so that we lose)

    i am only 16, yet i sound 18-19 and i play games for fun, not solely to win, because that brings out the worst in people
    the way i play my games will leave you standing there thinking.........WTF??

    no no you got me all wrong there, i meant help everyone even if they are 13, as some gamer will ignore younger gamers

    i didnt mean any offence

    Of course and I understand that. I am sure there are 50 and 60 year olds out there going "0M6! 7h15 64m3 5ux5! H4|0 Ru|z!"

    I know there are alot of younger people out there that enjoy the demo (and some post here too) that is why I said alot and not most or a majority. I guess I should amend and say that those that complain about the game and don't understand the controls generally have the attention span of a knat.

    Put me into the under-16-and-loving-it crowd, however I am occasionally locking up/freezing and leaving the game. Sorry if I left on anyone's games, it wasn't my fault.

    You also have to realize also that alot of those idiots are about 12 - 16 years old.
    You also have to realize idiots are just about everyone, and everyone, has the right to play the game and learn it. That does not make them idiots to me, but worthy adversaries later on.

    Besides, whats wrong with giving pointers to someone who doe'snt know in the first place? Good teamwork and good team building does not come from a lost patience or a lack of tolerance, nor exploitation or humility. It all boils down to a willingness to cooperate and work toward a common goal with which no member is better then the next, but an equal, each with his own purpose.

    My Own Personal Aside: Besides, most of those 12-16 year olds are the ones screaming at everybody else to learn the game before you play or quit and are haplessly refusing to help they're teammates who might infact be capable of turning the battle if kindly taught.

    what i recomend is if you start up a game, name it somthing like Midway and use a password like battle.

    now everyone on the forums will know this game will be played by people who have followed the game on the forums.

    (i dont know how the Xbox works so i dont know if you can do this with the 360)

    unfair prejudice

    im 15 and i think that people are allowed to moan and hell its iratating but it is a fre world. it is depressing to see people complain about my age group and say we quit every time a unit is destroyed. i have only quit twice before the end of a battle or before ive become a spectator and both times were because i had dinner and couldnt avoid it. i only quit when i become a spectator because i find watching other people boring.

    I'm not sure how you think a new player will learn the game without playing.


    They aren't the idiots, but people that make posts like this one may be.

  16. #41
    Exactly Ravem..I mean the only thing that anyone has really played is a single level DEMO for petes sakes,now everyone is starting to get this elitist attitude already.

    Sure there are going to be asshats everywhere thats just life in general.But for crying out loud,let the game sink in a bit.

So maybe some one has a suggestion on who to fix this problem like creating private games and adding people from the forum on xbl? this is just a problem ive run into and would like to fix so we can have some intense games.
    I find this interesting you titled this "Idiots without a clue", yet the very thing you are asking for is able to be done.

    You can make private games, and send game invites from your friends list. Just add people you like to play with as a friend, and avoid playing with inexperienced players if you so wish to do that.

    Hey, small world. I'm also that age and I consider myself mature and intelligent. I can't stand people that figure we must be small and incompitent if we are only of that age. I probably got better strategies than some people 3 years my age.

    first of all - ive tried to create games where i have private slots and invite a friend but regular people were still allowed to join the game even though i had made private slots. So either its buggy and doesnt work or it wont work until the final release version.

    and second of all im not calling people who dont know how to play idiots or even young kids. I have no problem with 13 yr old kids as long as they dont act like jackasses (this goes for anyone of any age) The people this thread is complaining about is people who know what they are doing but cause problems regardless. For example, if you know how to play but still decide that the best technique would be to ignore or swear at your teammates while only building 1 ship because you dont think you will need more. Then you have everyone telling them to build another but they continue to say they wont need it. All the while, the enemy fleet is attacking your shipyards because of one players incompetence.

    I have no problem with helping new players learn the controls but its the jackasses that ruin games on purpose that piss me off. I did not mean to offend anyone on this forum.

    This will all take care of itself if after the game comes out. The Trueskill matchmaking does a good job for the most part and will match up players of equal skill levels.

    Also, for new players there is no instruction manual (for the demo). I don't care if you have a list of control functions...that doesn't fully help you play the game. I struggled a little bit my self when I first started but it was actually the games amazing detail that sucked me in and now I am a much more experienced player (although I still have much to learn). If it weren't for the demo I would not be buying this game or even be on this forum.

    The point is...you can only learn strategy by playing the game. Knowing that left trigger cycles through the available weapons doesn't really help....it is the strategy that makes this game what it is. Everyone has to start somewhere.

    Guys not only is it new but there is no guide to use. I just happened to stumble over here and joined the forum.

    If you dont have a game with serious people then you will and should expect to have quitters/dumb play/noob play/gang up play. I played a game where I was the only one left for Japan. BB at the airstrip and they were just shooting planes as they took off. 4 on 1, now what fun is that for them?

    I think as the serious community grows you will have plenty of opportunity to play will serious players. Just be patient, release is next week.
