People Suck

Just thought I'd vent my frustrations at this afternoon's entirely unsuccessful attempts at a decent round of Left 4 Dead.

No friends online, I joined random Versus games...here are the results:

Game 1 - Some asshole (SLEVIN KELEVRA [Josh Hartnett's character in Lucky Number Slevin; this scumbag doesn't deserve the name]) who always kicks me for no reason does so again. He then proceeds to invite me back to the game. So you can kick me again and waste my time? No thanks.

Game 2 - Server shuts down after the other team, who was giving us a decent beating (in small part due to two of my teammates leaving, but we were losing by a little before then), leaves when I incap all four of them with a tank.

Game 3 - I left this game after a failed vote-kick on a guy (vic hitcher007) who's teamkilling. He did only kill the one AI on our team, but I don't know why you'd keep someone around who's purposefully handicapping your team. Unless you had an agreement with the other team, no AI, in which case its your responsibility to inform your team.

Game 4 - The most bizzare of the day, I get kicked for helping my teammates. One of our survivors was dead early on when I joined, so I had a feeling they were just running the level and not stopping to pick up incapped teammates. Sure enough, as soon as I do, vote-kicked.

Game 5 - Stuck spectating. Really wish they'd fix that.

Game 6 - On the teamkiller's team again, despite having marked him as a player to avoid, I leave not wanting to deal with that.

Game 7 - Kicked by SLEVIN again. I message him asking what his problem is. I get back "u r a n****r."[Admin edited] Racial slurs aside, I ask him what his reason is. "ur parents are nig." Communications blocked.

Game 8 - As a boomer I get shoved out in front of the survivors by a teammate, but I decide to stick it out since I at least got to explode on one of them. Then when it's our turn as the survivors, my X-Box red rings.

So there you have it, some of the best of the worst of X-Box Live.

People do suck. Really, anyone you meet through wifi or XBox live is some loser who is just a horrible person.

Oh, thanks EP. I feel really good about myself now. I guess I'll just stop going online now.

There are some good people out there. Not everyone can be as cheary as you are, Necro.

I'd count XBOX Live as YouTube level stupidity among internet venues - which, lemme tell ya, is pretty bad.

I like playing Battlefront II on the PC because there are a couple of major gaming users that virtually every player goes to. So the games usually have the max of 36 players. Also, there is a language filter, so if you swear, you get booted, which is pretty nice when some younger kids are watching you play. And there rarely are any weirdos that play, since they all seem to be in Halo 3 and Resident Evil 5.

Oh don't get me wrong, I've met plenty of good friends, too. But today was just bad all around.

And thank you to whichever admin edited my blog. I thought that word would be picked up by a sensor.

When I've played Xbox Live at my friends I'm always shocked at the behavior/language of some of the people on there.

Not to be snobby fanboy or anything, but the PS3 has much less of a problem with this. Then again I may be skewed by what I play. My most played game is LittleBigPlanet and they have a community thats mellow and very well pruned, probably even more than ours here.

If my experienced isn't skewed my thought is that when you gotta buy the headset seperately you're going to weed out the people who are going to to use it just for being a jerk.

Yeah, it's smart to insult a guy who gives so much more back to the community than you do.
