so I just hammered out some nerds in a game and was flying the 4f4, I dont really like the plane much but had a good game, someone from OWWS decided to private message me beaking off because I have less than a thousand battles, and my win percentage is under 50%. to be honest I play the objectives but im not overly concerned with my win/loss because I cant control the team. I did find it funny that they were so butthurt that they decided to message me after the game to whine. I played quite a bit pre 2.0 and only started playing again last month. I don't think I am awesome at the game, but I am decent enough. I just find it really funny how whiny some of these kids are.

newsflash, I bought a premium, actually bought 4, so I could train pilots. because I know pilots give you a huge advantage, I dont talk trash because lets be honest, its a free online game. anyway, no idea why this person decided to be butthurt but it amused me

Probably couldn't stand the fact that such a killer fighter pilot like him got beaten by you.

 

I will admit to mouthing off in chat when I'm really ticked off (which is most of the time) but what's in game stays in game.Chasing someone into PM to mouth off at them is just bad form.

But a truce to this mournful story

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

And a laurel to crown each end

You run into morons like this everywhere.  If you start to get all bent out of shape because of your stats in a game of electronic warplanes, you have far greater issues you should probably be looking into.

I'm afraid you run into morons like this everywhere, not just in games with electronic airplanes but in real life.  Honestly, if you feel you have to try to make yourself feel bigger by attempting to make someone else feel small, especially over a game of electronic planes, you really need to get a life and should probably seek some professional help. 

 

 


"Don't mess with me because I can squish you like a bug, that is If I should decide to notice your existence in the first place".  

 

Yes, it's haughty and its arrogant but you're a battleship with 16 inch guns and Britannia Rules the Waves.  Maybe a bit of arrogance in this case is appropriate.

You can get some people being jerks in after-battle PMs, but most of my interactions have turned out positive.  

 

For example, someone sent me a message that they did not like "quitters".  I had left a game 'cause my kid said "Dad, the sink won't stop running!"  And an hour later when I returned I had the message.  A good thing though, because I could explain that, no, I did not leave while we were losing, I left because I did not want a flooded bathroom.  

 

I have also used post-battle chat to try to "help" other players.  I do it much less frequently now than in the past.  But I did have a player spamming "Attack Airfield" again and again while they were in an IL2.  So I gently told them in an after-battle message that they needed to go attack, oh, I dunno, THE MILITARY BASE, perhaps?  Rather than spamming a low value target.  Turns out they had no clue on how certain targets like military bases and plants are more substantial than the central air base.  

 

But yeah, if you win and someone on the opposite team spams you with messages about how bad you are, it's just an indicator you are doing the right things.

I rarely encounter that kind of thing in Warplanes.  Most of those tools play Tanks where they can wank over their glorious pure PvP stats

Vast majority of after battle contact I have is either me complementing someone or them complementing me, occasional bits of tactics/plane quality discussion.

I played semi pro football for 20 years, full contact full equipment, I was known for messing with peoples heads, trash talk doesn't bother me. I just find it funny that someone would get butthurt over a free online game and talk crapin pms after a game ended

Hold my beer. 

 

I played so bad one game a player left our clan. 

Its not my fault a tier 9 ( 80%+ W/R ) flighting with a tier 5 OP cant carry a match

while I spam attack an airfield in my tier 9  GA for daily missions.

You should have told him to put on his swim fins and do some snorkeling!   :P

 

I find it telling that, usually in battle chat, the worst performers on either team do the most trash talking.  Maybe that's all they can do?      :playing:

I normally only PM when I lose to offer congrats to a worthy winner. Most PMs I receive are positive, usually don't respond to negative comments. I had one guy complain that my bots were better than his bots, I don't know what he expected me to do about it.

This. I will sometimes reach out to pilots (friendly or enemy) who did well.

On the flip side, if I got my butt handed to me I try to do better. I might vent in game but I certainly don't see any reason to b!tch about it after battle.

same here.  :honoring: to someone that out-flew me or had an exceptional game, that sort of thing.   Very little negative interaction here, imho.

I've been known to get a bit snarky IN battle when frustration mounts ("This team couldn't beat eggs."), but after battle messages initiated by me are for congratulating someone on their spectacular game.

back in the day you were expected to be able to cash the checks your mouth wrote

so I also find it cute,

the internet creates free range tough guys

the sad thing is,

is that they really start to believe the superiority they espouse about themselves

if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

I am distressed that one of our clan mates broke the clan rules. 

 

I have been known to ask "Hey, are you guys going to help, or are you just out for a pleasant flight?" in-game.  After, it's almost always about compliments or discussing tactics.

 

My other one is after a ROFLstomp, someone types in "GG", I type "good in what way - that it was over really quick?"

I got in a turn fight dogfight that lasted almost 4 minutes, I was in a spitfire and they were in a Zero but with all my bonuses, our turning was almost perfectly equal, we both started with full health after several passes, I did an immelman turn that took them by surprise and managed to do a lot of damage. after several more passes I did it again and killed them. after the game they sent me a pm saying great fight, and I said " it pissed me off because I spent half the sortie killing one guy hahaha" but honestly that was one of the funnest fights I have had on here since 2.0
