Default Between a Scrub and a Killjoy

I don't know if you've ever felt this before.

You play a versus game. You play a character you're really good at. You end up winning all the games. People suddenly don't want to play with you when you play that character. You choose a character you're not skilled at so others can play the game with you. You lose game. You get trash talked, but others will still play with you.

What do you choose? Being a scrub and let them win or play to win and be a killjoy?

I say, I'm thinking about it too much to even care, lol.

well it's good you have a good character. you need to have a mid level character that you're pretty decent with and lose some and win some. and then save the good character for those times you feel like killing mercilessly

That's why i never played fighting games.

The safer would be team based games.
Safest would be coop games, where everyone is a winner/loser.

Personally, I wouldn't give a damn because I know if someone is going to be a little baby over a game, it's not even worth playing with them.

Yeah, i'd rather be the chooser and pick the friends that really want a challenge.

When i play SSBB with my cousins, they yell at me *TO* pick my best character, or one i managed to pull off an upset with and get a epic win.

Now those are good gamers. <3

I say play your best, they're never going to get better if they don't lose. I remember i used to lose to my older brother at almost every game when i was younger and now i beat him most of the time.

I'd rather play to win than bust out the excuse caboose. It's not fun to play the same m/u all day everyday though.

lol, these things.
Happens to me with my cousins when I play fighting games with them, mostly SSBB. Since I play a lot of fighting games, I have a general knowledge on playing on something between casual and tournament level, so when I do shit like Ganondorf side+B spamming on their wake-up, they get mad at me.
For the most part, this is what leads me to play multiple characters in any game, so I have a "character I'm interested in but suck with" and a "character that I'm CASUALLY GODLIKE with."

What you should do is start with characters you suck with, then when they start trash-talking, switch to your better character. If you win, trash-talk back. If you lose by fluke, you can now act like they no longer have the right to complain.
Either that or just troll around with your main, use them as live practice dummies for all your live-testing shenanigans.

TL;DR: TROLOLOLOLOLOLthem.

Multi-chars all day in every fighting game so you can mix it up during any battle. if you know how to generally/casually play all the characters then pick the character that your opponent has the advantage over/counter characters so that you get to play actually trying and you get practice on how to beat that character's bad match-ups for serious matches. Trolololololing always works too. if playing against scrubs then you can also just give yourself some restrictions(ex. No DPs, No "Specials/Distortion/Destroyed/Hypers" or whatever you wanna call em).

This happens to me and fighting games a lot as I usually main slow, bulky brawlers like Tager and Potemkin. Only difference being I eventually get tired of them. My friends are always supportive of me trying new chars, they usually will too when I do it unless I ask for them to use their main. People online however...

Though instead of hatemail from people, I got one guy actually apologizing.
I've gone from mainly using Tager to trying to learn Tsubaki as I can seem to combo better with her. Got beat by a Hazama who sent me a message saying "I hit you with throwing knives three times, I don't know how I did that, I'm sorry. Good game." Was a damned close match though.

My advice Kon, if it's a fighting game give them hints or info on how to counter your character. Alternatively dumb down how you play a little or start learning another character you like just to appease them, and if you get "too good" with that one ask if they want you to use the other one.

Bring your A game. I don't complain about my opponents when I lose, I just complain about myself, if anything. And I'm the kind of player who has to be a specialist. I main Ciel in Melty Blood, Ken in Street Fighter, Jedah in Darkstalkers. I win some, I lose some, but I'm always improving.

I guess I'm glad that I have friends who don't whine, but try their best to get better.



Anyways, I just choose the character that I'm learning if I am playing with newbies. But I suck so much even with my mains that I end up choosing my "best" characters anyway. ohohohohoho.

The only fighting game I was good at was Bleach DS, and the second one, but only 'cause of the shortcuts in the touch screen >_>

It really depends are you using one of those charcters that do nothing but spam spam or actually try to combo your enemy to death? If not be the killjoy play the charcter you simi-suck with/suck with get better with it and own your friends

in that case, you just got to be familiarized with all the characters such that you become so versatile, and if they don't want to play with you, just challenge like asking them if they are going to chicken-out or something

Daigo's kind of a killjoy, too, but it's all good. Frankly, I loved that whole match, anyway.
