At a loss

153 replies 660 views Edited Apr 29, 2013

Hey guys,

 

I understand that many will see this as a pointless thread but I wanted to bring something up that has been bothering me. Most of you know that my favorite playstyle is the healer/white mage style. However, I've noticed a huge decrease in respect since 1.04 came out. I used to be regarded as an essential cog in the team....and tbh I made an enormous contribution to each victory. But lately, people dont give a **bleep** about whether u healed them or grapple save them at the cost of your own life...or if u sacrifice urself to the rage blade wielding enemy like I have. They only look at your combat. And unfortunately, I'm starting to feel unappreciated (which I often am anyway).....ive seen myself relentlessly frinding 2v2 this weekend to raise that abominable, all important kill/death ratio. Dont get me wrong; I'm a pub stomper in combat, but I never cared abt maintaining that before. I just dont know how to get back to where I used to be :'(

i generally judge people by how many points earned vs how many they gave up to the enemy. If you can play team support and consistently gain favor/ not constantly die, then you have my respect.

The truth of the matter is this game is built around combat and Poseidon is no exception. IMO the healing abilities or role of playing healer is a subsidiary. Ares can buff the PP of his allies but I'd never consider that as an actual primary role. Same applies with Poseidon in my opinion. He has awesome healing capabilities but to focus on that solely and neglect the combat element of the game is not what I think the game was intended for (then again I didn't make it so what do I know).

The isn't an rpg/mmo (whatever they're called) where you can pick a specific class like white mage or black mage or Archer, etc (well it kind of is but hear me out). Every allegiance is a combat type, they just vary in what form they are. Check the arsenal, it's all combat based. Forgive me for saying so but if your in this game to play healer I think you might be playing the wrong game.

It sucks to hear about your clan though, that's a really dog thing to do if they did that. If they aren't appreciative just leave and find yourself some people who accept the way you play.

my clan members are generally very nice and accepting. sometimes unless u get a shining score like 12-1 (pretty usual fr me in 4v4) u get overlooked tho. there is another group of players however that str8 up told me to play ares and "make myself useful" or leave....i left

Haters gonna hate. I enjoy never dying in situations where an ares could only watch me die.

in a general sense what im saying is that the dynamic changed after the patch from "oh gr8 u healed me the whole game and helped me go 15-0!" to "i went 15-0 why didnt u get above 10 kills?"

What the heck changed during the patch to cause this change in mentality?

Well the main priority (in my opinion) for 4v4 is Altar control. If you have a play style that makes you go 1-9 but allows total domination and eventually the win I wouldn't care in the slightest. As long as you're not hindering the score of the game and you're having fun what should it matter?

What Bluesteel said.  I see people with 1 kill at the top of the team due to favor earned. Objectives overule killing.
