Edit: Should mention I only played FFA because of a daily objective… definitely NOT because I wanted to!
Just played my VERY FIRST “serious” ranked match of FFA to complete my daily objective for doing so (played ONE other time for some achievement a LONG time ago). It is well known that I am not a sweaty player, so I didn’t expect it to go well. Also, it was my first game played this after waking up this morning, so I was still shaking off being sleepy.
Therefore, imagine my surprise when I got SECOND PLACE! Couldn’t believe it!
However, you can imagine the chat box…
See, I’m a re-up 50, level 100 account, which means people expect me to be some kind of PVP god.
In the chat:
- I was called trash
- I was called an idiot for being killed by the same person 2x in a row
- It was said that I eat male genitalia
- And after the match, this gem: “Lail can’t even win with buffs on looooooooool”
(There were some others, but I can’t remember them all)
And that last one just really took the cake… There is literally nothing about my re-up level that would give me a buff…
And remember, the people giving me insults I BEAT in this match by a LONG SHOT expect for 1. What weenies…
And mind you, there were 7 other players in the match and I was the ONLY person being verbally attacked. Literally singled out…
All that is to say this is EXACTLY why I never ever play VS expect for Coop V AI in this game. I understand smack talk, but literally attacking someone in the ways I get attacked online Every. Single. Time. I play a VS match is absolutely ridiculous!
I HATE versus. Hate hate hate it. PLEASE take away the versus-specific daily challenges and the Ranked-specific medals from Tour of Duty (unpopular opinion, I know). PLEASE don’t force players into easily the most toxic game mode in this game.
