Why are so many people still thinking that this is League of Legends? LoL only has one map, and one objective, where children fight each other over what lane they are going to be in, and will throw a match at the drop of …well, for literally any reason at all, really.
HoTS is the opposite. Especially in Quick Match. I try to not take it too seriously. I come in, I pick a character, usually based off of a quest I have, and I do my best to try and help the team out. Often, depending on who I am playing and how my team is performing, I might have to actually push myself to do more for them, even if they yell at me because they do not understand the map objective. Each map is different, so each thing I might do is different.
I might play Varian, where I will push a lane so hard that the enemy sends 2-3 people to kill me…and then I kill all three of them, and then capture the mercenary camps in their jungle as well as mine. Or maybe I do that, and then go capture a temple…whatever is needed.
But I just played a match, in QM. On the Raven Lord map. THe one with all the shrines that launch at the enemy base? Anyway.
I picked Chen. It was QM, so I had no idea what map I was going to get. But to be fair, Chen does not really have any “bad” maps per se, so yeah.
Nova (toxic little turd)
So we are already out-classed. They have three tanks, two with a crap ton of self healing, and another with a good amount of self healing. And then two healers on top of that. We were basically going to lose from the start.
But I pushed in, tried to peel when I could, but really I just played as annoyingly as I could, just pestering the enemy team with some pokes, and then standing there soaking a lot of their damage. Nova would just do one shot and then run for about 20 seconds, then miss her next shot…They were kind of bad. Our Greymane was just flat out countered by their team, and then the enemy team kept trying to dive our only healer, and nobody would peel with me.
Meanwhile, their team has about 6 different ways to stop me from using my passive as Chen, so my shields are hardly ever up, but Lili’s healing is pretty good, but there is no ammount of healing that can help.
Meanwhile, the whole time this Nova is legit spending more time typing than shooting. At about the halfway point, I go up top to get those little scarecrow guys at the camp, and push out top. Maybe a solid minute of the match. I was also farming health orbs for my quest, because I really like it. I got 6 out of them in the one minute. I was about to go to the next objective, and see nova left a comment.
She said “this d-rubbing fa***t chen is afk top, great throwing you dipshi…”
And the Lili asked wtf she was talking about, and then the dude went on an five minute tirade, talking mad crap…
she is the only one talking about me, becaus the rest realise that I am actually doing my job as much as possible. They all realise the circumstances.
But because I spoke up at all, this person felt the need to verbally abuse me for no other reason than that.
