If people vote crushing, I expect them to carry me through it. I'm not doing all the work.
haha... you're too modest :-). i've played w/ you & Alluboy. you guys were so efficient it was hard finding bad guys to kill.
I’m convinced that Crushing has gotten more difficult over time so if I get outvoted for Crushing and they’re clearly not up to the task, I’ll leave (not proud of it but there it is). Every once in a while though, they surprise me and are better than their level would indicate or it’s clear that they’re making an effort to play cooperatively – then, I’ll happily stay. I like completions and there’s satisfaction in helping others get completions as well – any difficulty…I’m not fussy.
There are experienced/skilled players that are jerks as well though, like the time I played with two randoms on Sanctuary. One was about average but definitely a team player…the other above average and definitely NOT a team player. The above average dude shot and downed each of us twice (revived us though so as not to get kicked – underhanded but clever, I suppose) to get the Pak80 (and neither of us were hogging or “stole” it any of those four times). I was so astounded the first time it happened; I thought it was a mistake but he kept doing it.
I agree w/ both points. Though rare I've also seen some amped up crushing matches where the AI were really good at avoiding bullets w/ quick zig-zags, aggressive shotgun guys in groups & multiple cluster/militia guys spawn in same area in early rounds.
Besides teamkills by clusters w/o teamsafe & just plain aholes I've also run into players who teamkill for power weapons. Seen it happen to others many times & to me once for PW. I rarely use PW but this 1 time this guy & I each had a pak10. He was downed so i healed him then got killed by him right after. then got msg that I stole his pak. Turned out my pak10 picked up his ammo when i healed him. I wasn't even thinking about it, just wanted to save the guy lol.....I've seen some spoiled behaviour but killing someone who just saved you is about as low as it gets.
BTW you never TK people in co-op. I don't care what your reason is. If they have to die in co-op, it has to only be in the hands of an AI. Co-op TKers are really bad.
Plus I was on the receiving end of that way before. Yes, I was a low level, but I did work too. You didn't have to down us both especially considering there were 2 lives left, wait for us to die, and then leave.
I hate TK's in Co-Op as well. Even more so after a horrid match when 1 person made it their mission to screw me and the other guy over the whole time. The were smart enough not to actually kill us but only severely injure us and let the AI do the rest. I put up with it as I did very well and would've leveled up a lot but that person made it unbearable. The other guy left 1st, then I did shortly after. The other guy messaged me about the team killer. We both complained about him and it lead to us becoming friends lol.
I mean...you can just rage quit on the rare occasion that happens. And kill your teammates before you do if it makes you feel better.
You can also party up with experienced players. I'd be willing to help!
hmmmm.....DON'T do this. no reason to spoil someone else's game. just leave.
i only like to play on crushing so have had to quit out of many non-crushing games. i have no qualms about it, not gonna waste time doing something i'm not enjoying. i just leave at start of game so they have time to pick up a 3rd & i go on to my next game. no drama.
oops... replied to my own post on edit.
I don't play w randoms anymore. If I want to play co-op, I'll do it w a clan mate. Or someone else on my friends list at least. When I play co-op I'm usually helping someone w their star or treasures tho anyway.
But yea, I try to stay away from randoms, regardless of game mode.
I like randoms. They provide a new experience that you have to learn with.
I mean, maybe it's because I don't run into morons that much. I run into competent randoms.
