Sorry, been extremely slow on the updates. I have a LOT to catch up to actually. Was at Anime Festival Asia 2013 with xiumai group, will have plenty to post about!
But today, I will post what's been annoying me (yeah, ranting).
You know how I find some people absolutely annoying with the way they act when they hold a so-called status? Well this one was well over the top. And I mean well over the top.
Let's call this guy H for now (if you read this, you know who you damn are).
First of all, you were in no way qualified to join the team. Absolutely no chance. Nil-nadda-zippo. You're just in coz well, we're friends, and you say you'll show signs of improvement.
Well perhaps I should have seen the potential bad things coming.
You gave a horribly bad impression by saying you won't commit anything to the team until your name appears on a list. Like seriously? Way to go for a first impression man. Immediately I question your commitment to the team. You are making this sound like a team that must bow down to you. Sorry, but this team doesn't bow to anybody. But okay, I'll let that slide. Your name got updated.
So a few months pass after that, extremely calm too I might say!
Then you had a problem with a fellow member, okay, I listened. Broken promises and all okay, fine. I'll assist.
So I spent my time on the weekend elsewhere when I could be doing something else more important. But it's okay, I'm supposed to benefit from these right? Sure I did. But I observe some things that made me even more annoyed.
1) Where was the promised improvement? I don't see it.
2) When I voiced I was moving on out of the game at the end of this year, you seem to have a change in tone. Do I sense fear in the tone that you will want me to continue on? Sorry, I don't have time for this. Then it quickly dawned upon me that you were afraid. Afraid to lose your status within the team.
To sum it in a word, desperation.
It's not like you changed in tone either. Moving on, you kept saying you improved, but words are useless. I want to see end results. And no, if you called THAT improvement, I call bullshit. I ran a time faster than you on my first try and I didn't even know how the physics worked yet! This is also the reason why your presence has zero impact. Nobody is even aware of you in real life because of where your skills are. I see you are trying hard to get people's attention, but I think that backfired extremely badly no?
And the one thing that finally pissed me off. Why do you pass off my advice as an afterthought yet come back and ask for more? You want advice, I give. What I do not expect and (actually, quite hated), is you dared to put someone else as an example of why my advice doesn't work for you.
So back to my initial thought. Why ask me then? Why not you ask said player for advice? It didn't happen just once, it happened more times than I can count. And why do you advocate people that are better than you to me? You show me no signs of confidence -. Or rather, to put it in a more straightforward manner - a reason to leave you in.
And really, to compare yourself with the said player, is a downright insult to that player. He's shown that he can handle it - but you obviously freaking can't.
I'll be frank. You're as dead as paperweight. When 1 Jan 2014 comes around and change happens, I wish you good luck. Because I can't say for the next person whether you'll survive the flow of change the person will bring in.
You were given chances and you blew all of it. I think you're on your last life. - unless the next person in line gives you more? But you are certainly already last on mine.
By the way, the reason I ignore you for the most part now, is so that I don't need to get annoyed. I have other things to do.
