A lesson in courtesy

Last night, in what was plainly an act of procrastination, I played MKX instead of Wild Hunt. Don't get me wrong, I really like Wild Hunt, it is just that parts of feel a lot like work and I wasn't in a working mood last night. I was in the mood to throw fans at people.

Honestly, I was in the mood to throw fans at Chance but he ducked me again. :)

I am not good enough at MKX to play ranked so I hang out in rooms and play sets against random people, sets being the operative term. Playing a match or two against someone will never teach you anything. Best of three at the bare minimum, the more the better. This is especially true with MKX online because a lot of stupid shit works online that would not work offline and it may take a match or two to figure out what nonsense the other guys is going to throw out there.

It is not unusual for me to get crushed the first match and then come back in the second. The same is true in the other direction. Either way, it is dependent on both players having the courtesy to give the other player a proper run back. This means coming back for a second game, no matter how the first one went, and keeping the same character,

MKX rooms are populated by god damn heathens.

Over and over a person would win once and leave or, even worse, win and then change characters. It was infuriating. Sometimes I would get my revenge and win the second game but that didn't help much, I wanted to fight this philistines main, not their bull shit back up character.

At least I got someone to quit in the middle of the match. This guy had no combos but his spacing and reaction were impeccable. He was very good at other fighting games and was playing it safe and simple. I have no problem with this, it is a excellent strategy. I adapted, that is to say I threw fans at him from across the screen, and he had no idea what to do.

And then he quit and his head exploded. I win.

  1. I was... entwined. Also I'm pretty sure I deleted MKX off my PS4.
