So I do a normal sortie. I have two mercs and one UNAC.
As soon as the game starts, one of my mercs kills himself instantly, while the other hangs back. I'm piloting a blader, so I need to get close to the enemy in order to get a few hits in. The problem is that they are all literally shoulder to shoulder, and peppering me with bullets, so I give the order for the UNAC to attack while I do a tactical retreat.
The other merc deals a tiny bit of damage to the enemy before retreating once he sees the UNAC and myself get surrounded by the enemy team.
I manage to escape, and fine my ally hiding behind the boundary line at full AP, not even bothering to try and help me get any damage in whatsoever.
I die, and then my team mate gets gang raped by the other team. After the match I ask him a simple question
"Why didn't you help out?". No salt, just wanted to know what was up.
His response is to call me a noob, and tell me that I was an idiot for getting me and my UNAC surrounded.
Soo... Let me get this straight:
You hang back from the team, and barely provide any form of help at all (Three pop-shots do not count as help). After your remaining two allies get engaged by the entire enemy (Knowing full well that one of your team mates is a BLADER) you think it's a good idea to ABANDON your team mates and hide behind a boundary line while sucking your thumb and hoping for you death to be quick. That's a better strategy than me actually trying to outmanoeuvre the other team, call in the UNAC to distract in order to get a blade strike in? What?
I wouldn't have minded the loss if that guy didn't act like a jerk when responding to my message. I've been running into more and more people like that recently, and using the player rating system on the xbox just lowers the already small pool of players that I can interact with when playing.
I never thought that a gaming community would be able to drive me away from a game that I love... Bravo Xbox community, you're doing a heck of a job making me dread going on the only good game I have on my console. Good fucking job.
I really should have gotten a ps3 instead. I imagine that things are a bit better on there. That and I'd actually be able to go one the JP server.
