Dear Boosters

I actually enjoy this game. I don't have a deep history of Resident Evil playtime, so perhaps that allows me to just enjoy the small map shooter for what it is.

 

The worst part of this game from where I am sitting is the boosters. About half the time I get on, I find a 2v2 match, meaning I am the 5th player and it is now 3v2. I usually quickly get a rude message to "get off, we are boosting." Only once have I ever been asked to join.

 

So I want to say, Dear Boosters: if you are in a public match and I join, you have two options: play the darn game, or be nice and invite me to join.

 

I don't understand the mentality that you somehow own the game, and the best way to ask me not to interrupt is to be rude.

 

Cheers,

 

Denvirus

 

EDIT: I'm talking about this game, Umbrella Corps. Not "every game ever."

You're telling boosters their two options are to not boost, or allow you to randomly join their session?

 

Good one 👍

I always find that interacting with someone who is stopping your boost will likely result in them being more motivated to come and screw up your boost. At least if you find them again you'll be able to get more easy kills on them :D

Ok, I'll forward your message to everybody who ever boosted a game in their life.

 

I'm sure they will understand your concern.

Good one 1f44d.png

 

I think perhaps I did not articulate myself well enough.

 

This game allows for SIX players in any given match. If I jump on and find FOUR boosters, then it's really not my job to decide not to play the game so they can get what they want. At the very least, they could ask nicely.

 

I have not had one person say: "Hey, we are boosting, do you mind jumping off so we can finish?"

It's usually: "Get off now, kid. This is our session, F you."

 

If you want to boost this game, get SIX players, or don't be a dick. It's not random if it's a public match. 👌👌

I honestly cannot fathom how people can be this rude. When I boosted Far Cry 2 and I had to kick randoms joining in the lobby I always felt so much guilt lol. I wish more games had text chat so I could ask them to join or apologize.

As much as i feel for you, you arent gonna have the funnest match when others are idle, or just just trying to do something specific.

While I %100 agree with what you're saying, I do have a question: Isnt this game largely dead? If the game doesn't have a sizable playerbase, you're not likely to find anything but boosters.  

 

IF that's the case, you kindof know (or should know) what you're stepping into, and it's stupid to complain about it (even though the merit of your complaint is spot on)

Yeah, it is great when you have a locked 6 player match with some people afk (rubberbanded controls), someone dc and immediately someone joins (because this game is dead but you will see how fast a random joins your game), see some players just spinning in their spawns and decide to "join the game" killing all the afk players and jumping all over the place without leaving...

 

And as ironic as it sounds there was one moment when a random joined and one person of our group politely asked him to leave... But he didnt wanted to and started to explain us via text how the game should be played... And obviously killing afk players... There is jerks on both sides, just deal with it.

As DeepEyes has said, when we were boosting and someone dropped we would get 1 japanese player that would constantly join. Given the game is barely played by anyone I very politely asked them to leave, I explained that were just trying to get trophies done and that's it. That person went on somewhat of a rant and tried telling us how lobbies work and that we will never be able to boost in a controlled group (even though we were already doing that for 10-20 hours at that point), when I tried to re-explain myself that person kept repeating his point and refused to listen.

 

Granted, they are in no way required to listen to me and do as I ask, so I accepted it. We left the match and tried re-joining each other, but from that point forward every time we wanted to connect and have a full 6 person boosting lobby, we would always run into them, they again kept refusing to leave the pre-game lobby. All of this just lead to us seaching for each other for an hour, while that person sat in a lobby and watched us go in and out of it and I can tell for a fact that was neither enjoyable for them or us, just waste of time.

 

But hey, that's boosting for you, you can't always expect people to comply. They were just trying to play the game normally, while we were trying to get our trophies done. I am not sure this thread will do you any good, people are people, you sometimes get rude boosters who tell you 10 different ways to fornicate with your dead relatives because you dared to join them and then you have players who post videos on youtube where they disrupt boosting sessions, because boosters are "noobs" (I mean duh', there's a reason we don't try to get trophies the natural way) and deserve to be purged.
