Rant 4: Stop pestering me and stop trying to provoke me
I started this page with the hope that if I put in writing the exact reason why people are morons, maybe they will smarten up and the game will be more fun. And maybe after that, they'll fart rainbows and go to live on the moon with a magical space monkey. Suffice to say, I should have known better than to expect that much from you.
Yes you, the person reading this right now. Especially if you're the kind who does things "for the lulz". I hate you so much.
Why I hate you
Allow me to put this very simple. Ever since I started doing my rants, I've had people trying to bait me into doing one. Sometimes even on a specific subject. To make matters worse, when I stopped writing them for a while due to other events in my life, people started going out of their way to attempt to frustrate me on the tables.
Other events in my life
As I was saying, this is what you've been doing to piss me off
Some of you may have noticed that I have not posted a new rant recently, even though I may have mentioned it on the tables more often than would be considered polite. This does not mean that I have nothing good to rant about, it simply means I don't feel like sitting down for a long enough period of time to write it.
It certainly does not mean that you should take matters into your own hand and attempt to provide me with fodder to unload on. Trust me, I have plenty. For the past 3 freaking days I've either been night killed the first night, or lynched the first day in most games I've been in.
I certainly don't mind getting killed early in the game, it has to happen to someone or there wouldn't be much of a game. The problem is when it happens ten freaking games in a freaking row. Thats about the point where I start to consider tracking down the nearest player to my hometown just to punch them in the face simply for being associated with the arbitrary pointlessness that has become playing this game.
Leave me alone, dang nabbit
Now, I know what you're thinking. This is completely off topic from my normal style of ranting. I'm still determined to keep my rule of not naming names, but I've had enough. So, this is what you get this time. Go ahead and call me a whiner, but read the title of the sub-page first. The only reason this page exists in the first place is so I can write up long winded complaints. Just let me play the freaking game in peace every now and again.
Die in a fire.
4th Edition makes me die a little inside.
Ranger, here; I apologize if I have contributed to this. I, too, find myself shot a good deal n1 or random lynched day one just because they can. As to night killing, as mafia, I want to kill players I know are smart, as they will often times figure me out. As cult/mason, I want smart players on my side. Which is why you'll often be the target of my night action, regardless of role. As cop, I want a solid confirmed innocent (...or a smart guilty gone) to help the town, as doc/bg, I want the smart player kept alive, etc. Logic's a double-edged sword. If you're listened to, then you will get night killed. If you're ignored, you'll be lynched. However, if you manage to find a player who is actually smart enough to listen, and they share your alignment, then it is all worth it.
