A Failed Recruit Attempt

7 posts in this topic

My buddy just flew about 6-7 missions at Knoke.  (my account so he had a Spit9) I took off in the plane so he wouldn't crash.  It looked like he did well at first and hit a few planes hard. He got no A2A kills though.  Twice he lost a prop to, what appeared to be very little fire. He rtb'ed a couple of times and successfully landed with gear up.  lol  Once when he was shot up I bailed him out.  (which was funny) He didn't like riding the chute down and wanted an option to hit esc. I though he should have gotten credit for 2 kills in the air.  He did kill a boat though.  He never got Alt or maintained E.  Just flew straight in to the fray.  His thoughts were focused solely on shooting up EA and just getting smoke on them.  A deal breaker.  He had no interest in INF play.  Wouldn't even try it.   I tried.

I fear many folks aren't giving the game enough time and playing for instant action.  I explained the learning curve was steep, but he doesn't want to put in the time to catch up.  That's on him, but it says a lot.

Shoot, he did well
6 7 missions i am lucky if i get an MIA and kill anything at all.

Sounds like he is used to flying in box shooters / console shooters.
Those are kind of designed to give instant action with quick results, this is more like chess.

Tell him to man up and stop being a beeeetch.

 

Life isn't about instant gratification, and the stuff that GIVES one instant gratification is usually not very good, like crystal meth.

 

If he doesn't have the patience to learn how to play this game, then that's his loss, for sure.

How do you know crystal meth isn't very good?

You haven't seen a meth head ever?

Those people throw their whole lives away for that [censored]. It's gotta be good.

I have come to the conclusion that most people play games to relax. They are not after something that requires effort, concentration or the requirement to build up personal player skill. They are after something more inline with interactive TV. Something they can play with little real effort but it passes the time and gives them a reward. Hence the popularity of games where you can farm unchallenging mobs for xp and loot, or gather resources for crafting or simply socialising with mates online while you do something that is designed for you to win. The games reward the player with character xp, newly crafted equipment, a pretty green helmet, etc. At the end of a gaming session 4 hours have passed and they have "won" with little real effort.

WWIIOL does not provide that gaming experience and it why I am still here and have always had an active account since year 1.
