Post AOW dev at his best!
This is why we can't have nice things.



All during a game in which Eric was losing. I find this to be pretty outrageous for someone who's modifying a game for the COMMUNITY. I've left my nose out of AOW business for a while, I just play for the most part. But I find this to be pretty unacceptable behavior. If the players opinions didn't matter, then what have you got? Nothing. And AFAIR, It's Nightfalls mod now...Hmmm!

Son, I am disappoint.

Yeah don't be rude. One must be especially respectful when representing (or perceived to be representing, since I thought Eric had retired from work on Omega) something greater than himself.

But as far as players' opinions mattering, both views are valid. In AOW especially, there will always be a mass of plebeians clamoring for something awful with a few more level-headed scattered among them. I'm not saying Player was wrong, but speaking more generally.

I do understand it when somebody is losing in this mod and rages - admit it, this mod is kek'n pro in causing such feelings. But even when so, I'll have to say that the latter half of the in-game log was unacceptable. If you rage like that, disconnect, go smack a punching bag or something. Don't get elitist over the fact that you're a dev.

I can easily forgive this, but please try all you can not to do this again. Ragequitting actually exists for a reason. While it may be a little frowned upon, it's definitely better than this. You can even cover up the fact that you're ragequitting with a white lie - for instance, say that "your mom is calling you for dinner" or "you're almost late for class" - I used to do this a lot back during summer.

Its not the first time he did this..

I saw similar in the past.


And I also have no skill, because I take the Plasma Cannon with me everytime when I try to plant a beacon. :lol:

In his opinion I'm not able to handle other weapons due to this^^

a) I dont play AOW2 just to show people my skill
b) why should I left weapons out, if I can take them? - Thats like trying to fight an attacking tiger with a pistol, while you have a shotgun next to you. Of course I take the shotgun due to its better efficiency and the less risk to die. But eric seems not to understand such things^^
And as we had several times SSG vs SSG in a refinery or other building I won him often ^^

The whole whining is bullshit. The teams have exactly the same units and weapons. Then just pick yourself a gattling and own them, if you think they're so noobish...

c) it is sure NOT your mod. It was at start Voltlocks ones and now the leaders are: Chromium together with Metal. -> http://aow2.drdteam.org/page.php?page=team I cant see an eric at leader section.

Too true. In fact I really hate when elitists claim that something "takes no skill." Identifying and using grossly overpowered weapons is itself a skill. As a modder, balancing the weapons is a skill.
