I'm really disappointed of CIV community...
« on: April 25, 2009, 11:14:09 PM »
I played for like year offline with AI, where i became pretty good player (i compare to others in few games i played online). I played for like 10 games online. 8 of them were interrupted in the middle cuz n00bz started quitting and such stuff. They were cton. When i tried to join team game, i got kicked from every fucking game without reason given! I try to join again - they kick me again! I got crazy...damn later one of them told me "they thought i am n00b so they don't want me to destroy their game". wtf, how do they know?  Just because i have no ranking? Oh sorry, i don't like playing with all the folks, end 1 game of 5 that i start (n00bs leaving) and this game should be winning! I don't wanna waste time on kindergarten, i don't have superfluous 50 hours to be able to join "high pro" games.

I don't like that merciless "pro" gamers in their way to judge another guys just due to their rating. They have to play with them first to know their skill.

I agree with u dude.
Of course at the beggining u haven't got the same level as "pro", who played since  years. After that, you have to understand men who want a really good game with high level. I understand it's really frustrating for beginners. I live this situation years ago. But you have to be patient.
BTW, hope u'll take ur place in the league.
We nead new players like you in our league ;)

Yes, i understand, that you need to make difference between good players and n00bs, i played Unreal Tournament 3 before and i know what is n00b in your team ;). I think my arguments are mean, cuz i can't suggest something new by myself :( Seems like the only hard way is to suffer all these ctons and ffa...

btw, how can i sign up for league? Being registered on the site isn't enough?

I suggest you try and join PPP-TG, a clan designed specifically to help new players adapt to the league competitive environment.

Contact me or any of my PPP buddies in lobby or send me an email  ;D

I am sorry about what happened to you. Probably you got very unlucky or unpatient because they do not kick so often. I was kicked several times before got allowed to the teamers some years ago. Who wasnt? But please understand their position. They have buddies coming and you being a person they've never seen. And probably you can die to warrior or something like that. I dont say that you will do it, but you cant influent on the game when you have noob allies and that's frustating also.
Why cant you play some duels or CTONS, you wont be kicked from them? Or just talk to the host before he kickes you. Say that you are new but you are decent civ player and promise to do your best for the win. I am sure that nobody would kick you under these circumstances.

And again I would like to say that I am sorry. Our community is very offensive against its new members and it is our big trouble. And I never support those hosts who kick new players and I never kick anybody myself. But the part of that blame is on new members themselves. They are gods who have just started conquering the world and they cant pay the least attention on communicating with members of the new community they join.

Aka_sova, please think about this thread when several months will pass and you will be going to kick unranked from your game yourself.

Oh, damn! I have just lost 51%. How could that happen? Where is firaxis complaint section?

I tried to talk with them, but maximum they answered is "go play some ffa first". Last two games i wrote instantly in chat "DONT KICK ME!! listen first!", but even this didn't help.

Thanks for your answers, i think i'll get along with this problem and pass it asap :)  :attack:

Feel free to join the Cool League Teamer when you see it hosted, I don't kick anyone from this game unless I played a game with you before and your horribly new to civ. Won't allow a team to suffer the drudgery of having to train players, thats not what teamers are meant to be.

I will also look more favoribly on someone who has joined a clan, this suggests they have some training or they have read strategy forums that every good clan seems to have.

Good Luck, hope you find your place soon, initiation into any league or club is never an enjoyable one until after your commonly accepted and even then, its just the first rung. You will find you will start to learn who the players are and then your hooked. When you start comparing your game to others and how they play, its all over for ya ;D

Hello buddy

Firstly Welcome to league, I am not going to be sorry for you  as I exactly felt the same way like you did, so I am done being sorry for myself and others. I  have sticked around for some time and I am really enjoying it very much although me and my friends  who play here are under constant criticism from some of the experts here but we have made our space among the majority and they do appreciate our contribution. You can read my thread "Hello ALL" under genral discussion to see what I felt when I joined league and what things you can do to play league teamers and not be dissapointed.

Just stick around and you will get a hang of it and when you do it is fun to be here.

Wish you all the best
Slayer

some new players like aka_sova or execat and knight_magno are nice and its fun to play with them and share some tips (even get a few)

few other new players, as can easily be seen from the way they chose to express themselves in this topic, are not as fun to play with..

Look up player Stats. and this becomes quite a funny tread.  ;D
Reporting/Confirming   72.6h

I would start out reporting my games a bit faster than that if i was to complaint about the other players.
Not to mention get 1 win in a Cton or duel.

They talk, and talk and talk and talk, about individual freedom. They see one free individual and it scares the shiiit out of them
