You should see what I kept out of the threadOriginally Posted by Haruka 1589309586 (#7522)I'm just going to write one post and be done with it. Everything below is 100% coming from my heart, whether you believe it or not.
@ Haunter/Jaleb The way you say that just grinds my gears even more. You're like "oh, we're probably not gonna play together again anyway so chill." Screw that. I'm not going to just let this slide for no reason. Yes, YOU are the reason I didn't enjoy this game whatsoever, and for 5 minutes in LyLo, before I ultimately voted Infernape, I was going to vote YOU on pure principle just because I thought you deserved to lose. And in hindsight, maybe I should've done that. Maybe it would at least make you think "hmm, maybe I shouldn't have been like this." But I'm afraid it would have the opposite effect. Not only would it be gamethrowing, it also wouldn't be fair to other players, and you would end up flaming everyone even harder. So I decided to do the rational thing in the end.
There, I said it. Maybe I'll get banned for it, I don't know. But I didn't want to gamethrow in the end, like you've suggested several townies were doing.
Braixen definitely wasn't stellar, getting angry like that, insulting people, and more. I definitely don't think what he did should be ignored, either. Many of his posts were extremely harmful.
Vulpix made a poor play which got them modkilled after they fake-copied an ability from their role PM. They also were harmful to the game, although in a different way. As far as I remember, they didn't insult anyone, though.
These things were pretty bad, and I wasn't there when they happened, which means they probably linger in my mind much less. For all I know, I could get more mad at these players too if I were there, interacting with them in real time.
But calling them gamethrowers, calling town bad all the time, treating yourself like the hero who saved the day and expecting everybody to lock you town, getting angry whenever someone even SLIGHTLY suspects you, having terrible tone, being toxic throughout your time spent in the game except for when you weren't being pressured... I could go on, but my point is, I don't want to just not say anything and help people forget. I don't want to be a shining bastion of bystander syndrome.
You were a travesty and one of the most abhorrent players I've ever met. Not because you played poorly, because you definitely played well. But because of the way you acted. Not just towards me, but toward other players. And hell, you don't even care about it post-game. You're still continuing to do this, and the only person you seem to even sligthly respect is Mawile (Lissa). Which is ultimately the reason why I'm writing this post. I don't want to judge the entirety of MU just because of one player, hell, not even because of one game. But staying quiet would give me a guilty conscience.
What do I want you to do? I don't know. Maybe rethink the way you treat other people behind the screens. Because we're all people. You're not insulting machines who can't feel a thing. You're insulting people.
And I'm not going to let you do that without standing up to you. Even if it won't matter.
You brought this on to yourself when you didn't just assume the occam's razor of who would bus.
