Ok the setting:
I did not sit in plex, I asked for 1v1 engagements in systems, and tried mostly unpopulated ones, where it was just me and the other guy.
The enyo was sitting in a plex, and most likely blaster fit judging from kb.
I was in a dual rep ab T1 rocket breacher (one of the few brawling capable ships against more elite targets for alphas), and I was wanting to practice scram kiting. It’s not like its something the enyo wouldnt be able to handle, even with blasters and good slingshot moves with null . If I’d warped in on him I wouldve just insta-melted and wouldve made an uninteresting fight.
The DD was also sitting in a plex, same story, I asked for engagement, as warping in there wouldve been pointless. I later checked the board to notice the guy was mostly flying dual webbed DD, so even if he’d accepted the 1v1, I wouldve probably fried. Also, the guy was about the same age as I, and even complained I had better “skills” than him and so he wouldnt take fight lol…
The Slicer, had killed me once before as we simultaneously warped on a plex gate, he was sitting already at his comfortable range advantage. Still, I managed to land a web on him once, but died too fast and just as I managed to land scram. So I came back asked for a rematch while sitting in a plex and the guy just said nah and flew off, probably thinking he couldn’t take being scramed and webbed upon entry eventhough a slicers inertia is probably the best of all t1 frigs ingame for escaping that …
And the fourth denied engagement, was against a kestrel, a fair and even 1v1 against a breacher i thought. So I warped in on him and he was sitting at around 30k, and visibly aligned. I burned and started gaining towards him, he was really slow so I assumed he was plated kestrel and looked like he had rockets as well, the perfect match no ? He warped off before I could get a scram him…
So yea… and ftr @Felyx_Ravencroft, and to tell you the truth, Im not sure what kind of self affirmation you’re coming from yourself with so much chestbeating about being a national Starcraft champion, and that you’d have no time to waste on all the “plebs”, but I have to say you could possibly have made a great teacher, only … if it weren’t for the disgustingly pompous and arrogant insinuations in your entire post, any student would sure shy well away from.
My OP came from a verifiable feeling of cowardly and disinterested conduct by players in this specific game, and my frustration with it in spending my own personal time looking to have some simple fun along with people who clearly have other interests than the said fun in mind … ie: like sitting in a plex alone in space, being sad, scared, or arrogant twats and refusing to interact when it doesn’t fit in their BBQPWNDWTF sense of engagement.
Post serves no other purpose other than just saying how annoying it all is, and within reason, and maybe for some people to realize it and start growing a pair for their game’s benefit ?
