There is NO excuse for going the wrong way in huttball and standing on your goal line typing "Stupid game glitch, it isnt letting me score" while 50 million ops chats, are saying "Wrong way, go the other way" or being sapped in CV solo defending(Cant watch that Health Bar) but for some reason they cant type a sentence in 8 seconds and the node is lost.

1. Don't be an idiot, type 1st, in fact havemit pre-typed.

2. If you called out before the node was taken or u died then goodjob, you're the one who should tell ur team off if it gets lost.

3. Be polite

That being said, I fully support what the OP has said and am working on divorcing myself from being angry at, really what? A game? Not worth it.

I think the lowering of the daily requirement by 1 win (2 participations) will actually help difuse some aggression. Part of it is just the thought that you're wasting time fighting in a losing warzone. The less time commitment that it takes to finish that daily can only help mitigate this all the more.
yeah me to!

Ive definately got more jaded

But I still dont call specific people by name out unless they are being ignorant themselves first.

But lets be honest here, any one pointing out mistakes will be told to "F off" or "go play your imp" by those making the mistakes over and over and over because on the internet everyone a tough guy and a expert!

Happened last night to me. We were losing huttaball by 4-0 because the same marauder on the imp side was able to force leap from the pit to our endzone because the same 4 people lined up on lip to shoot their guns.

1st time I simply asked why people standing on lip? (no responce and clearly message didnt get through)
2nd time i said nothing
3rd time I asked again "why people standing on lip above pit to be force leaped to" to no responce
4th time I just sighed and said, "ahhh well, 1 more loss for daily to be done" and got the "if you dont like rep so much why dont you go play your imp" responce by one of the 4 continuously standing on the lip.

So lets not pretend pointing out the mistakes in a polite manner is going to make a difference as most times those making the mistakes simply dont care and dont want to hear you tell them how to do something properly.

Im all for maturity and civility.
I will NEVER spit on another player for example. Thats immature and frankly rather disgusting.
Ill never call out a person individually by name unless they have stepped over the line (talking behavior not wz ability) first
And as stupid as it sounds to many online I try to use my Please and Thank You's when ever possible
And I do make suggestions and statements to improve the team but my patience is not unlimited for people that ignore it to make the same mistake 3-4-5 times in a row in same warzone.

Fact is most players dont like being called out directly or indirectly

Other day I made a simple and common sense statement because my team wasnt attacking healers that Id marked.

I said "Guys they have 2 marked healers and are cross healing so unless you get on same healer target and pound him down fast first, no other target your attacking will matter or will die. Attack the healers in unison"

Pretty simple and straight forward and no one should take offence right?

The ONLY responce I got was "hey *name* hows the fort stim working for you?" like that was some helpful insite? Yeah I was useing a fort stim at time, I had 16k hps buffed, I needed it to move me into a more desired hp range until I was geared up and could switch to Aim/power stim. WTH did that responce have to do with team not attacking marked healers?

Answer: not a damn thing. The person (DPS class) saying it (who was in war hero gear and had 19k hps....and I still out DPS'd by almost double his amount at the end game tally) simply didnt want to hear he was being a moron and his war hero gear didnt immediately demand everyone follow him and his limited knowledge of PVP.

So being polite and mature and helpful is often met with open hostility from those that really do need the help in the first place!

Which brings us back to frustrated and annoyed and short tempered.

This would easily be abused by everyone and I realize that.

If there was a matchmaking system(not this threads purpose I know) in place then at least an ignore could be taken into affect but shouldn't prevent someone from joining if there is no other available game. Since there is no matchmaking system in game, it was more of a "selfish me" idea/joke but I'm wasn't trying to be really serious...considering what you posted and I would never want that ability as a player nor do I want anyone to have that power.

Sorry for confusion.
I've actually seen the same idea many times in game.

I suggest you troubleshoot/call your keyboard manufacturer and mention this glitch. Possibly got a bad keyboard, or mayve a circut isn't functioning properly hope that helped

Considering that Huttball has always permitted same faction matches and that some peeps are constantly flipping between their Pubs and Imps, there are actually a lot of excuses for going the wrong way in Huttball.

I have done it myself at least 3 times (that I remember). Just did it last weekend again but we still won the match thanks to my Vanguard's masterful turtle job in the opposing Pit! Gold, Purple, Frogdogs, Rotworms...after hundreds of runs through that WZ a lot of that stuff just starts to meld together into one big pixel blob.

My bad...ahead of time.

Game last night we lost huttball 6-0. 6 out of 6 of those scores were becuase the same Guardian used force leap to get out of the pit into our end zone or to clear past the last fire pit on the ramps.

I normally maintain civility but that level of stupidity is unacceptable. If you are so stupid that you do not learn from a mistake after the first 1, 2 or even 3 times, you should not punnish others by making them put up with you.
