Sep 9th 2008 3:38PM Not I'm not but I guess you can get carried away when drinking the hateorate.


I wasn't going to post the following text but awwww c'mon ef a guy.


Weenus I'm waiting for your response.

Well I take your silence as a big "I'm sorry for being a loser"

Apology accepted Weenus but don’t mess with me or I’ll eff you up.

Yeah I'm sure you didn't expect to be called out by a pro eh.


Still I don't like pro gaming is not only watching other people play stupid, seriously if I knew someone was watching me while I play I don't know a game I'm good at nowadays (Sadly I quitted every game I'm good at because I got sick of them) I would tell them that while I’m glad their enjoying the show that they should do something else with their time.

Games are for everyone not for a few and this only helps to reinforce a negative stereotype of people who play videogames.

I work hard and even when I played like there was no effing tomorrow back in the day believe me when I say to you than I do have a life (A very, very busy life) and I’m not a jack*ss.If someone told me being the best in NWN wasn’t a big deal I would agree since it wasn’t,it was something personal.

Also I rather get recognized for the Story I wrote for a children’s book that was distributed nationally when I was 10 which also won an award from the National Secretary of Education than something puny like a being the best in a videogame.


Yeah I have won several literature awards so suck it hard Weenus…I mean ahem don’t be mean. (See that’s exactly why I quitted,it turns you into a d*uche..I'm not a d*uche)

Sep 9th 2008 2:48PM Well I'm some sort of a pro-gamer since I was one of the best in NWN and I completely understand why people hate the so called pro gamers.

Some pros are Jerks, sometimes even myself.

I remember turning people into stone and Lol at them and since they couldn't get over the incredible high salvation throw but compared to the rest I was actually one of the most charming pros in that game since I never meant to insult no one but damn the other guys even the guy bellow me in the rank was a complete douche. He made fun of people and he didn’t even wanted to recognize my rank, yeah he was a big sad loser.

Most Pros actually cheat in some way; in a game where everybody has the same opportunities to win the only thing that separates winners from losers are cheats, glitches and small advantages. To be the best in NVW I played that game nonstop.

There is a rule in Pc games: Want to be the best, play for a year and it’s true.

Nowadays I only play for fun I really got sick of tournaments when I was kid, that’s the origin of my hatred for Halo. Good game but the players suck.

Oh and if you think pro gamers are sad just ask me about my days playing yu-gi-oh.


(I’m not making this up and also seriously you won good but don’t be a jerk,you give pros a bad name)

Sorry if this double or triple post.


“How is that any different than the millions of people that devote their lives to music or art and can barely make enough money (or not make enough money) to live on?”

People who make music and arts somehow give something to our culture while gamers well they don’t do anything but play the game, I didn’t created NWN why should I get recognition for it?

As much as you guys want to compare pro gaming to other sports is that other sports bring something to the table, even those NFL steroid monstrosities pose as inspirations for kids to play sports and get in shape.

Once more I think pro gamming would be more recognized if the guys playing them would be a good example instead of something you don’t want to see your kids turn into or social rejects.

Sep 9th 2008 2:31PM I know you are all trying to say Pro gaming is serious business but I don't like to watch other people play.

Also more people would watch this event if they gave free beer.

Not to mention these tournaments bring me back bad memories. People in these events are normally doucheb*ags and so are the followers apparently since they drain the fun out of the game.

When I won I said GG and I retired with everyone staring at me as If I had cheated or if I had raped them and the second place still manage to be an ahole with everybody else.

You know what’s the main difference between gamers and people who play real sports? Good Sportsmanship.

That ruined several games for me, I didn’t cared If I won and I didn’t enjoy it and the atmosphere was suffocating.

Sep 9th 2008 2:18PM 1-I could say the same thing about magic from the outside looking in.

In the words of Samuel L Jackson: “I dare you ,I doble dare you motherf*cker”.

Well in the case of Magic if you already watching a tournament you are already too deep into the game also that there is more thought it building a 60card deck prepared against people who put the same effort and dedication into their decks which are packed with probably tons so stuff that could twist the game in ways that can turn the tide of battle immediately in one turn.

So no.

2-If you watch the top tier of Counter-Strike competition, you'll see new tricks put into play the same way you would watching M:TG competitively.

Eh no for the reason televised events just circle the cameras, you are saying this as If I haven’t ever seen one.

Also you learn more form a youtube video than a televised match. The only trick I learned from a tournament was to never circle a camera because you don’t know WTF is going on.

3-There is nothing you can do by playing on public servers in Counter-Strike to ever become a shade of the player that the Pro's are.

Wow Cs is serious business, glad I never play it more than a month. Neverwinter nights was so awesome and BTW I was one of the top 5 NWN players so STFU but let me guess no one cares because running and gunning is way, WAY MORE Complicated that building a character that can counter everybody else.

4-Plenty of people have tried to make that argument and failed miserably.

Like yourself.


Now you are telling me this like if I was some jealous f*cker who doesn’t know sh*t well you are wrong, I have been in tournaments and the reason I didn’t like them is because people as yourself are f*gs who ruin the game.

I have to say that people can ruin what could be a wonderful game. Is funny how players separate themselves from each other depending on the game for example halo players think they are the top sh*it and Cs think they are better than them but people who play strategy games think they are better than them. To be honest no one gives a f*ck except yourself because videogames are just a hobby.

Want to feel important, change people and improve their lives.

I have been writing books to help people to improve their lives for a while and yeah even when I know I kick ass in TF2 and Neverwinter nights (More or less in Castle crashers) I know my job will and is always going to be more important than whatever I can accomplish in a videogame.

Another thing is that you want to compare people that just happen to be good in a game to people that actually worked out since their childhood to be actual Champions.

Sep 9th 2008 1:58PM I used to be in tournaments when I was younger and I must say you wouldn't like it, as cool as it sounds to be the number one (Insert game here) champion the people in those events suck ass. Usually the participants have too much time in their hands and none of them was beat by their parents enough, with that I meant most of them are d*cks.

Also in a tournament is really hard to find someone that actually gives a run for your money, most of them will stick to the cheapest strategy or cheat depending on the level of the tournament.

As I said Magic tournaments are way better at least there is a bit of thought in those but to be honest casual play in Magic is the way to go.

Now die.

Sep 9th 2008 1:45PM If you are the host is not a problem but if you want to join a game it crashes sometimes.

Sep 9th 2008 1:42PM Maybe is because people don't like to watch other people playing when they could be doing something better with their time or playing the same videogames.

You know I find Magic Tournaments way more exciting than videogame tournaments because in strategy games you can see some new strategy and being the first to learn the new Meta helps you to get better in the game. In these tournaments you can’t see sh*t and you couldya know be playing the game instead of watching someone else play in tv.
