After spending AGES looking for the damn mission, before realising it was in "weekly event" tab and the quest timer answered my previous question here I fired it up, hoping for a barrel of laughs and a good time. It was at first even though the scale of the map meant I was trying to get my bearings and shit like Packmaster grabbing me and my AI buddies taking ages to rescue me did annoy me. But it was otherwise fun at first as a solo experience.
Then someone joined. I thought "ooh OK, he's level 1, he'll be just as clueless as I am and I can take my time to sweep and clear the map in case there's something I missed". Nope, it turns out the guy was a veteran levelling up Bardin while I was on Kerillian as a level 5 (I played a few missions during free weekend, brought the game but didn't play it for like..ages). Not only was the guy rushing ahead, he didn't even explain the ale mechanic nor did I have a chance to mess around with it, and he was quite bossy too.
Now he was helpful so even if naming and shaming was allowed he wasn't inherently toxic, just bossy and impatient is what ground my fucking gears so much. The only reasons I'm so used to sweeping and clearing maps rather than bum rushing them are:
– Rainbow Six Siege, if you don't clear out roamers you're gonna get shot in the back. Yes rushing CAN work, but there's been times I was 1v5 because my teammates played it like CoD, didn't even bother with droning, callouts or map control. Even in Outbreak we made sure it was clear and we're all set up before starting the holdout OBJ, especially on Pandemic difficulty
– a matey of mine: during a Share play of Bloodborne, he was so fucking overzealous he showed me where one hidden location was and he was terrible at keeping a lid on spoilers. I've healed that rift with him, but it hasn't eroded my paranoia to check every fucking corner for secrets or surprises, nor do I feel like playing that game again for the rest of this year as he made me feel so stupid and dumb for not knowing it, when I wasn't given the chance to LOOK for it first!!!
– Easter eggs or collectibles are a thing in games, I haven't even maxed out Killing Floor 2's Dosh necklaces cos lazy, but I probably could if I felt like revisiting that cursed game (they ruined it with the addition of eDARS + HoE spawn cycle changes + forced upgrade system)
Now I DO realise how frustrating it is when you join a game, and your teammates are slowing you down, however it was a RECRUIT game, and I was level 5, not level 35 like the fucking moronic showoff did to me at the end!! Yes I called him out for being level 1 so he wanted to prove me wrong at the end when we beat it together, but it was more "I've done this many times there's nothing here" "how, you're level 1 O.o" so I was just questioning, not trolling and idk if you can check profiles mid game or not as I'm still learning this game.
If you want to level up a character in someone else's mission, especially a recruit one with a low level like me, have some patience please. This isn't like Killing Floor where I have 820 hours combined in both games and beaten single and 6P Hell on Earth difficulty multiple times as a Support main and know the maps inside out. Nor is this like Let It Die where I have 3,500+ hours, got some
with Shovel, know the floors + weapons intimately and the only thing stopping me from being one of the gods of the game is my stats, not my mechanics. I HAVE 7 FUCKING HOURS ON THIS GAME, WHAT DO YOU EXPECT!!!!! Pro map knowledge and gamesense? Shroud like aim even though I hardly play FPS because I'm so burnt out on them?!? (doesn't help my mouse is in dire need of a replacement, it's so scuffed) Yes I'm highly skilled at PvE games and want to continue pushing the envelope with them, but rushing the learning process of a new game kills my enjoyment of it quicker than a heartbeat.
I literally just wanted the rewards, not to be placed with someone who's so impatient it made me not want to play any more. Which is a shame as I do love the core gameplay, it reminded me of my times playing Left 4 Dead on Xbox + PC and the character banter is just priceless.
I honestly hope all veterans aren't like this, whenever I coached my mates to solo HoE clears in KF2 I tried to keep a balance between nudging them and letting them do their own thing, letting them vent if they needed to when the game frustrated them. And they all beat solo Hell on Earth difficulty thanks to my guidance and their hard work. Even in LID I've had people thank me for my constructive advice despite being brutally honest about things, they've become much better players as a result and 2 of them even surpassed me in the tower!! (but I have them beat for Forcemen clears + blueprints 😉 ). It's totally possible to be helpful without being impatient or arrogant.
Please don't be like this guy, you'll drive people away from playing, myself included. I had my hopes up when I read comments like "The community is active and really friendly" and this thread but this experience tainted that for me. I guess I was wrong about the community… FeelsBadMan.
(I'll take the L if any punishment is due, but I just wanted to get it off my chest and hope this isn't a common occurrence in forced pub games, otherwise I might as well reinstall Siege if I wanted to deal with
#t=854″>toxic assholes. Or try CSGO/League/DOTA/yougettheidea. Even Fortnite's STW lets you solo 4P event missions like Dungeon, but playing in a group is usually recommended due to how overwhelming the enemies are)
tl;dr one veteran joined who was really impatient with me, rushing ahead and all sorts. Really killed my mood to play, PLEASE allow private games for ALL missions event included so us newbies can take our time (unless that's a one off and most vets are chill here)
