lavendergrant surrounds himself in an echo chamber of people who form their opinions around his simply based off the fact he's the best player in the game. they don't think for themselves and instead regurgitate how he feels simply because "he's the best so he can't be wrong!"
i think if he took some time to practice having a discussion or talking with other people in a respectful, equal footing manner, not surrounded by his mindless zombies, i think he could grow a lot as a person and become a much more respectable person than he already is
What we need is a respectful discussion on the merits of throwing games, super underrated post guys! :3
The thing is, not everything is up for debate. Some things have an objective nature to them, that's just the way it is whether that hurts your feelings or not. Among those things would be "Is feeding when there's 30 seconds left a good idea?" or "Does having 5 ping give you a huge advantage?" There is a right answer and there is a wrong answer and I sincerely hope you don't need to be nearly as good as me at TF2 to know what that is. When someone proposes something that's so far out of bounds of what is correct, you don't pat them on the back and encourage them as an equal, you shut that down as quickly as possible so as not to legitimize their claims. I challenge you to provide an actual example of a subjective topic that I have refused to consider or a topic I didn't fully understand that I spoke with confidence on. If you can't do that, you're just making vague baseless accusations and propagating this echo chamber lie that funnily enough is exhibited nowhere better than right here in this forum.
You're literally doing exactly what people are saying in both of your posts. I honestly feel like in order for your close minded self to understand this topic, I'd need to write like a 5+ page essay, but maybe I'll do that for you after finals. Anyway, you sort of ignore the connotative meaning of what people are telling you. No it is not wrong to call somebody out on feeding with 30 seconds. No it is not wrong to get angry at that. No it is not wrong to think 5 ping is an advantage over your 60 ping. But that's not the point my dude.
It's the way you go passed just dreading on an issue and shit on people, and I honestly don't know how to put it in words because it's just common sense if you have any possible social skills, so I'll give you an example. You say things so untrue that somehow people still believe it. You've literally said, with anger, "corsa wouldn't even be invite if he didn't have 5 ping" when I beat you in a scout vs scout1v1. Now with how delusional you actually are, I wouldn't be surprised if you legit thought that. But you influence your entire chat to think I'm actually an open player on scout when I have anything above 5. for instance, rocket literally thinks I cannot play invite scout with 30 ping. I'm not saying I care what rocket or those people say; I'm just giving you an example of how you influence people's opinions in the strangest ways.
As far as circa goes, you influence your chat to think that he's an intentional thrower, even in matches. Just because somebody throws in 1 pug intentionally, or even unintentionally, doesn't mean you should influence that that's how they are as a player. People literally think that circa is just a thrower and are confused "why woodpig gaming picked up an intentional thrower." You have zero grounds to talk about somebody throwing (or other personal things) that are ONLY showed when playing on a team with that player. And for that matter, you have zero grounds to influence the community that circa just can't handle what it takes to try hard. I know that's not your intention, that you might not even think that, and you're just having banter, but that's the whole point here. There's a difference between banter and changing the perception of a player.
