There's pretty much guys like this in any online game that has any form of co-op. A friend of mine used to play WoW and I was astonished at the bitter, basement dwelling asshats in his guild who would literally give hour-long lectures on how to take down a specific boss or whatever while he was playing and if any player even remotely disagreed with their plan they lost their shit in this epic way.

Happened to me recently as well. I still play Defiance, and they introduced raid-style bosses not long ago and, sure enough, a wall of fucking text in the chat on this intricate, detailed method on what to do and when to do it when, in fact, not dying and just wailing the boss with as much damage as possible is pretty much the winning strategy.

You should see DotA games. They're the pinnacle of such behavior. 10 seconds into the character select screen and people will be swearing at you.

I still remember the insult: "I hope fifty more 9/11s happen so more worthless niggers get killed."

As a person who was actually in charge of raid strategies, I have to say for sure, it depends on the game and the fight. If you're doing something actually hard (say, heroics or any old content in WoW or the old hamidon fight in CoH or something like that) learning a strat and following it is literally the only way to win. While a lot of hard fights can be boiled down to "avoid damage, deal as much damage as possible" knowing HOW to avoid this damage when you have a very limited amount of health and revives to go around is why people get anal in games like this. If you're doing hard content, you need to know all this and you need to know it perfectly.

This is overkill. Hilarious amazing overkill. This is a guy yelling at kids for not playing a kid-friendly MMO correct when the proper combat technique is "Do nothing but use a really strong attack over and over". Please do not let his example dim your view of people who enjoy brainstorming ideas and crunching numbers in order to overcome a challenge. The only challenge this guy seems to have a problem with is KIDS ARE DUMB LOLZ

I had a few friends who were into Everquest back when that was the No. 1 form of game crack and they ran into their share of anal-retentive beardos and back in the day I played on text MUDs, MUCKs, etc. and you'd occsionally have to deal with some disruptive clown who insisted that his way was the correct way to play the game.

I know that there are strategies to some of the more elaborate bosses and such. Mainly my gripe was towards the self-appointed experts who are assholes about the whole thing rather than people trying to be helpful and informative.

I mostly play single player sandbox rpg style games these days. Can't wait for the new dwarf fortress, it's been literally years since the last update.

To sort of agree with Redford, comparing this guy or people losing their shit in other games with a raid leader losing his shit in WOW is just kinda silly.

I never led any raids, but I always felt sympathy for guys who did. I quit raiding and eventually quit playing WOW because just the legwork involved to make sure I was ready for various raids started getting to be like 20 hours a week. Mind you, that was 20 hours doing tedious unfun grinding. I can imagine how stressed out and upset a person would get if they had to do all that grinding on top of organizing and tracking everything that has to happen for a raid to go down.

In a very real sense, that content just doesn't get done without people who will do all that work, be pushed right to the end of their rope, and then show up next time.

If playing a video game is so stressful it's turning you into a world-weary alcoholic film noir detective, you need to step out fucking side.

Wait what? I can't tell if this is a joke, if it's a fan made video of a real game, or if it's a real game and this duck is an official Disney approved coach in the game?

Sexy Duck Cop - 2014-03-10


It's not a joke. See also: TOONTOWN IS CLOSING.

People will buy literally anything you sell them.

The funny thing is the bad guys are evil corporate dudes.

EvilHomer - 2014-03-10

Cena, that's the part I'm having the most trouble wrapping my mind around, and that's saying a lot because nothing about this game makes any sense.

DISNEY made a game in which ruthless corporate robots are the bad guys?? I know Disney likes to present itself as a fairytale land of magic and wonder, that's part of it's brand, but come the gently caress on. The irony can not be lost on absolutely everyone involved in this thing.

They would have been better off making the enemies a motley collection of small businesses, copyright-violating pirates, and Jews.

Cena_mark - 2014-03-10

Public domain should be the main boss.

EvilHomer - 2014-03-10

Beat the shit out of Public Domain and loot his corpse.

I think we may have ourselves a hit MMO.

cognitivedissonance - 2014-03-10

Actually I did some research, and originally they weren't robots until Roy Disney Jr. got upset about a villainous portrayal of corporations. Just to reiterate, an actual Disney, the nephew of Walt himself, got personally involved in a project over the negative portrayal of corporatists, but found it ok as long as they were robots.

Robot corporations = cool
Actual corporations = worth investing time and energy from the most powerful family in entertainment to stop

This kids game for kids is SERIOUS BUSINESS PEOPLE if you can't KEEP UP you don't even DESERVE TO PLAY

5 for incredibly sad manbabies

cognitivedissonance - 2014-03-10

This is an enormous hole of crazy to fall down. And be warned, it goes a long way. This might be the Mel's Hole of fandom.

Jeriko-1 - 2014-03-11

It's even more demented and sad this dude has his own fans that will remind you in the comments that he's -Coach- Z so he has every right to yell like this. Because he's a coach or something.
