I've played multiplayer with this game since the very first day it launched. Yet it still never ceases to amaze me just how many dicks and assholes multiplayer with this game attracts.
Today I was on ICO. It often takes hours to get into a game. I had been patiently waiting a long time, just as many others had. Finally, a 10 player game filled up, hosted by Pawelo. Teams were being picked, when all of a sudden 2 Brothers In Arms guys who hadn't waited at all pop into the game chatroom and say "boot noobs so we can join!" Their names were:
The host promptly went down the line and booted "noobs" (basically people with unrecognized names or who hadn't played many games online) so that these clanners could join. The clanners laughed and made several references to booting the "noobs."
And people still wonder why the no one wants to play multiplayer? And people still wonder why multiplayer failed?
Is this how you clans want to represent yourselves?
To the leader of Brothers In Arms, do you care how your clan is represented? Do you care how your clan "brethren" conduct themselves and treat other people? Do you think this treatment of others by your clanmates (and this guy Pawelo, who, granted, isn't in your clan) was fair? Is this how you would want to be treated?
