Default [Lunia] Spammers

how annoying are they!?

using a tecnique that takes no skill what so ever, then running around in circles waitin for your MP to recharge, and then spam again!

what makes it worse is that at the end of a match, they dont even say 'GG'. they just type in something like; "haha i beat a lv63, your a noob"

There's different ways to play games then what people define as a "skilled" way.

Examples:
Soliders in Anarchy Online unload all their special attacks on a target in PvP to get a quick and easy kill. This is called Alphaing, even if some of the hits miss they can still kill the target.
In Mechwarrior you can link all of your weapons to one button and fire what is called an Alpha Strike and if placed properly either completely destroy the target mech or cripple it so badly they have no chance.
Snipers in FPS games(doesn't even need an explanation.)
M. Bison in Street Fighter(doesn't even need an explanation. Can still kill a player using him if you know what to watch for.)
Hit and run tactics in RTS and games such as Lunia as well as those previously mentioned are all valid ways of playing a game. If you can't handle it, don't play it.

In L4D, picking up the sniper will automatically makes you a noob, even if you're the most skilled player EVER.

On the other hand, picking an Auto Shotgun or a M16 rifle will make you really overpowered.

You're a hacker in CS:S if you can use the scout and get headshots on a consistent basis(80% kills being headshots everything else being upper chest).
Stares at server bans.

But that doesn't means I'm hacking...

^ Having a good sound card is also hacking because you can hear people on the roof of assault. Mind you this is what admins use to their defense on the servers I use to play on.

Edit: forgot about shadows. Shadows are a tool of Satan if your graphics card can render them!

This, people thinking they're all that.
imo, Tia abusers + X9 are the real annoying ones, all they have to do is catch you once with their random hitting, then its gg 1k per hit.

And then there are the ones that got to 65 without knowing anything besides sliding and throwing things, and goes like "wtf how i cant hit u wit slide u noob".

Learn to use diagonals to catch them while they're waiting for CD/MP because no one uses diagonals.

Did he ever say he couldn't handle it? No. You jump to conclusions. Rants are made to let off steam about things that piss you off. Funny how most of MMOG assumes that people rant about spammers are the ones who can't handle them. They annoy us, yes. Never stated, implied, or inferred that they were out of our control in besting them.

Ahah, yes! Mechwarrior! Ah... brings back memories. Let me go get my Hellbringer! (Thor now, I think)

I always use a sniper rifle in most FPS games but that's only because I pride myself on being a good shot. I challenge myself to use the sniper in L4D even though it's just so pointless.

But on topic, yeah, spammers are annoying but it is a valid way to play.

And even then, probably half of the people that spam don't know about their A, S and Space buttons in which case you just have to predict where they're going and ta-da. It isn't that hard.

Note: If you don't use diagonals, don't expect to catch up to people who run laps. They know where they're going. You don't. Thus you are already a step behind.

And FFFFFFFFUUUUUU- MECH WARRIOR
If you held down a direction key while it changed into a movie, after the movie was finished, it'd say you were still pressing down the button even if you weren't and if you hit it again, it doesn't do anything and then I couldn't even go in a straight line. ajdsfhjksahdfk

oh a spammer rant again...
well here it goes...

it's true that it takes more time to kill a spammer(maybe) and it's way less fun for us...but it's a strategy, and lots of people use it. However, some people hate spammers because when they get beaten by one, they feel like all their effort has been neutralized by a random dude who doesnt even play correctly. It's not always true: it takes lots of experience and skill to be a GOOD spammer, and not just an average player who shoots every skill that's not on cooldown.

Between two newb players, the spammer will win. Between two average players, the spammer still wins. But IMO between two pro players, the comboer will win.
And this is why the only way to counter spammers is to train youself to be a pro player instead of complaining...because complaining will lead you to nowhere (k maybe certain players will stop spamming once they see your complain, but most will keep playing in their own way), while taking real action can prove to the average spammers that they MAY not have pvped the right way.

(BTW I think the best combination is to spam AND combo according to the situation)


edit: did I just kill this thread o.0

Oh I usually just kick the spammer if they end up boasting about it. Getting kicked out of room by unfair victory = pisses them off most of the time. Some whisper me and cuss me out, but hey, screenshot + email to ijji = win.

Depends if you're playing to win or otherwise.

If you're trying to win using 'skilled' ways, well... sorry, but you're doing it wrong.

I used to get labelled a 'spammer' last time in RO for 'spamming' HSCR (Cart Termination) on everyone. Cheap? Not exactly, as it costs lots of money and SP to do so. Effective? Very. However, some assasins and such just could not accept that fact and kept calling me 'cheap spammer'. Ugh.

Although if he mocks you for it afterwards it's pretty understandable that he's trying to be a jerk or just plain annoying.
