  • Hi Flats....Worst match I ever played. I have seen smurfs ruin a match before: however, our team was talking about what they were doing. They were rolling us and, then, would allow us to win when we were on attack. At the very end, the doom insisted that he/she was going to let us win. The two of us knew that that was not going to happen.

    • Hi there! Please, please, accept Flat's coaching offer. We love you

    • I've been through this sort of thing as well. I stayed for 6 rounds but after the dps Moira and Widow spawncamped me I almost put my foot through the monitor. It was at that point I said never again to comp.

    • You're awesome, I hope you're still playing and enjoying Overwatch 💙

    • Ya 100% deserved better :

    • You deserved a fun time. Imma sub to you

  • i thought yessica was the most unlucky mercy we would see on this channel but this completely takes the cake. as a support main my heart goes out to rosemary. i hope they see this and take up the coaching opportunity if they want! i wanna see them become a stone-cold killer

    • Yo are you the guy on the one Kenzo video, who I think was flaming him and "avoided" him for fighting 3 tanks? lol I swear there was a guy called "DIA" in one of his videos.

  • This went from amusing to sad REAL fast. As a support main who has the most hours on Mercy, I feel so bad for Rosemary. Just like I would, she made the swaps to try to be able to EVEN PARTICIPATE IN THE GAME AT ALL, and still got that treatment. Teabagged by these guys even. And boy, are the smurfs' mechanics garbage. I also bet that Rosemary got a similar response I sometimes do - I tell my team that some enemy is a big threat or a smurf, and in their own ego, my teammates will say "Nah they aren't that good." And it's like, yeah because they are ignoring you and you aren't paying attention to what's happening to everyone else. I hear this ALL THE TIME at mid elos, and it's honestly so frustrating because it shows an imbalance between their ego and their gamesense. I really hope Rosemary finds this video somehow and gets some vindication. Even Flats said she made decent swap attempts. That shows she might have more gamesense than these 2 idiots bullying her, taking their ranks into consideration especially.

    • I feel this, as a newer Mercy main this would happen a lot. It's just them genuinely targetting people to make the game unfun and I hope Rosemary sees this and takes Flats opportunity

This is literally the only satisfaction they have and the thing is they spent probably thousands of hours to reach that.

  • The “throw Defense, Roll Attack” is a SUPER normal Smurf game. And yeah these two are Gold/Plat. Smurfs usually like to chill two ranks below their main. You get a lot of Masters in Plat, GM in Diamond that sorta thing. Edit: I had a T500 friend who off rolled with us in Diamond. One time the enemy team had 4 guys he knew from the Ladder, said they do this shit, he even asked them not to in chat. So when it hit over time and they were letting us push payload he said “Just get off, they’ll keep this going forever.” People like this are just the worst.

    • The person in the video that sent the video was 700 sr. So they were playing in bottom 500, which means the 2 smurfs Probably bought account. Gold players arn't that good, doom was diamond most likely

    • Yea, but smurfing isn't a problem in this game, right? /s I had a similar experience where both enemy DPS just spawn camped my support partner, and he was in voice chat telling us that he was intentionally trying to fire them up so that they would keep doing it and feed us an easy win. Told my GM friend about it later, and it was two people he duos with sometimes. I was like, I fucking hate all of you so much.

    • @@Reflera DF was definitely not diamond. Was gold, plat at the very best. The Ana was maybe gold, the way she threw random sleep darts. Even if he didn't play Ana at all, looks like he was maybe 2200-2500 not much more

  • Please do contact Rosemary and get her/him some coaching. They deserve it. They deserve it for the hell they've been through in that game. Nothing grinds my gears more than (besides toxicity, and even then these 2 go together quite frankly) smurfs. Fuck smurfs.

    • its ur fault ur bad at the game no1 elses, take the opportunity to learn from them rather than bitchin like a baby

    • At the very least someone give them a hug even if they don't want coaching

  • my heart bleeds ror rosemary- what an absolute bully session this was. but they still fought on which is seriously impressive. i’d love if they get found n get under flats wings :)

  • Man you weren’t kidding, this was just depressing. My heart goes out to Rosemary, as a fellow low ELO support main, I’ve been there. I hope someone finds Rosemary so they can see how much support they’ve got in this community!

  • The smurfs 100% laugh like Bravis and Butt-Head when spawn camping

  • I think when people talk about the bad influence smurfs have on the game, they mean THIS type of smurfs. My condolences Rosemary, you'll be fine later. These smurfs deserve a PC ban.

  • I've been in the same situation as Rosemary here. A Tracer/Mercy duo spawn camped me for the last half of the game. But here's the thing, I let them because my team was actually winning. So when it got close to the end, I just changed to Sombra, walked right around them and to point to help my team win. I danced on the Tracer's dead body. It was a good time. Their team was pissed. The Tracer sent me a bunch of slurs in chat, which was just the icing on the shitcake.

  • She most likely called them out in chat and so out of spite for having their egos hurt they went after her

    • I desagree, I think Flats' right about it starting because of her pick. Many players have it stuck in their brains that Mercy players deserve to be bullied out of the game, and these smurfs already proved they are shitty people

    • This, it looked more personal than some "let's kill the mercy because mercy". Probably some inot so happy words were changed during this or previous game.

  • I started playing Overwatch about 4 months ago. So I'm super late to the party. Smurfs have completely ruined the experience for me in competitive. I tried ranking up or at least having fun in bronze but all I ever get are smurfs trolling me from the enemy team or teammates who are account selling and throwing games by choosing Mei and trapping me in the spawn room with her abilities. I just do quick play now and just focus on having fun. I really hope Overwatch 2 fixes this because I like this game but honestly I don't have much hope. No matter how well I play it's all a disheartening experience for me. This video hurt to watch as a Mercy main because it perfectly shows what's going on with this game.

  • I feel Rosemary's pain, I think I was low gold or high silver at the time and there was a smurf Tracer and she targeted me, I thought it was just cause I was Zen so switch to Mercy and she continued to spawn camp me even after I switch to Brig, I asked multiple times for my team to help me and they told me I should be able to kill her myself... I was being spawn camped and yelled at by my team. Which is why I don't solo que support anymore. I always play with my sister now and she Mains Reinhardt and she destroys anyone who even looks at me. When we tank/dps, we always protect our supports. If your supports ask for help, help them ffs

    • I know right dps are very self centred in a team game 🤣

    • What the hell is that Pfp

  • unfortunately this is so common in low elo. literally every other game i play looks like this. smurfs spawn camping and targeting the mercy and dragging out the game for the fun of it. i've played a game in bronze where the enemy team was a whole team of smurfs and they would rinse us until it was near overtime and suddenly all of them would just back off so we could push cart to next checkpoint and then they would rinse us again and this happened at every checkpoint ALL GAME on havana. they were also toxic in chat joking abt how they weren't smurfing and pretending to not know how the game works... ruined the game for my team just cuz some smurfs wanted a power trip. small dick energy to the smurfs who do this honestly.

    • Just stop playing. Don't even bother. Don't leave spawn. Run out all the timers, so their victory is worthless, if they want to "win" by harassing you, fine, fight not to lose. If you don't lose, they can't win. If you don't engage them and just keep dancing around and occasionally do shit to keep from being kicked due to inactivity, then, perfect. Make them spend as much time in your game as possible so they can impact as few games as possible if you do decide to engage though.

  • This makes me so sad and angry, because if I was in that situation, I would have left the game, but she stayed and took the bullying to try and help her team win, that's real dedication to a game and I 100% respect it. Rosemary, please find this video and see all of the people supporting you! Nobody deserves to get bullied the way you did in this game.. Hope those trash smurfs get banned for bullying.

  • I had this happen to me when I first started playing ow, truly a humiliating and discouraging experience. I didn’t play comp for a year after, tried again a few months ago and climbed from 1000 sr to high plat :)

  • This happens A TON in low bronze. Usually 1-3 smurfs on a team that just keep spawncamping one person. Just last night I got a Lucio booping people form spawn door on Ilios. And the worst part is, these guys want to stay on bronze, so they throw half the matches but still do this shit just to frustrate low ranked players.

    • weird people

    • ayyy redshell

    • the lucio spawn boop on well isnt really a throw tactic or anything, its a good strategic move especially if its an ana or something that contributes way more to the fight than a lucio. unless it's like rush v rush or something your team will benefit more from you spawncamping a high value enemy (which has the added benefit of stopping them from building their ult while giving you free ult charge) than you just sitting around and like healbotting or something

    • It's because he's already a game ruiner smurf by himself.

  • Just imagine how pathetic these guys' life is if they only can assert themselves at the expense of players that are in ranks lower than theirs. And Rosemary was strong enough not to leave this circus after being bullied, spawn camped, not getting any goddamn help, AND even after almost everyone in their team left. Rosemary, you indeed won this game!

  • Smurfs were the reason I almost stopped playing this game, it just felt impossible to enjoy comp games at my skill level when not only would victory be decided by whichever team got the smurf who picked whether their team won or lost, but even when I or another person at this skill level made a big play it became hard to appreciate it since people would just dismiss it as smurfing, which felt nice the first time but after that just became aggravating. It's not until a friend boosted me up a bit higher that the smurf count went down and I was able to enjoy games, sure I struggled at first but i was able to improve a lot faster since I could see what worked and what didn't much better as nothing worked vs smurfs and eventually climbed even higher on my own. If they did not boost me up I'd have probably quit, which unfortunately not everyone has that kind of friend, not to mention in order to save me we had to yet again perpetuate the cycle by ruining the enemies' game.

  • I can almost GUARANTEE the previous game they had Rosemary on their team, and she spoke as a girl, and that’s why they targeted her. It would fit every aspect of who those two are.

  • Instead of calling them smurfs call them baby punchers. That is the attitude needed to fight people with far less experience and skill.

  • These sort of people make me so angry. How are you this bad that you have to go to low bronze to bully people

But when you have like two guys just constantly camping you out and soloing you. It's very frustrating, one of the reasons I haven't gone back to okay Overwatch in awhile. Bad matchmaking when I play and the players aren't fun to listen to either in comms or in voice chat. I always get the comments you suck at tank, or DPS. Or the occasional our healers are trash. The ones that get me the most are the ones that say like EZ after a win when it was 6 against 4. It was like every game I was constantly rolled on. Every game, I know I'm not the greatest fps player but yet I constantly get ragged on because I'm not good at all.

  • I know in the past, you've railed against smurf account complaints, but it seems that you're starting to understand that this is what we mean by smurfs and that alt accounts are mutually exclusive from these ass clowns, Flats. Had a silver bronze 6 stack one time get paired against a 6 stack of smurfs on Nepal that decided they would not cap point and hold us in spawn until we would leave. We did manage eventually to win a fight and cap point on them and their response was "Well we were going to mess around and then give you a win, but because of that we're going to shit all over you now". We reported every one of them, but none of us got responses from the auto-responder, so obviously Blizz is okay with that. Remember, these "people" probably place gold to plat on these accounts and then throw games to get to those SR's ruining all those games and then they throw games at that SR to stay there so they can have fun ruining other people's experience. We try to take a deep breath and move on and not complain because creators like yourself tell us it's fine and to get over it, but it's utterly demoralizing and discourages this part of the community from getting better.

    • If these people hard throw their placements they can place around 1300-1500, trust me Ive done it. Then they lose around 100sr for the next 5 matches, and after about 10 matches they lose/gain normal sr. They will legit be 700-800 sr in a couple hours after placements and it will take them a week or so depending on how long they play to go back to gold/plat

    • Unfortunately, Blizzard's report system generally works with the number of reports instead of them looking into individual reports.

  • poor rosemary she is the real queen of this game. ppl like this ''ana/doom'' bully new ppl away from the game

  • As a genuine ex-bronze player, this makes my blood boil 💀

  • These are the exact reasons why I stopped playing the game. Getting matched with people that I have no business being against again and again and again. I quit. I was done and am STILL done with OW. MMR is broken and has been for quite some time. It's worse now that the player base is SO much smaller.

  • Those two just suck so hard at their actual ranks, so they smurf to feel like theyre good, rather than actually self-reflect. That's why they hold games hostage and throw when they're getting pissy. They have no intention to climb on those accs, they just wanna stay in bronze indefinitely to harass bad players.

  • First Tings First: Smurfing to ruin the games of lower ranks and preventing them from climbing or getting better is scummy as all heck. I firmly believe that smurfing to derank and ruin peoples' games to prevent them from climbing should be bannable. Second: The doom/ana are 100% the same duo I played against in placements. I had the duo on my team one game, then the next I was against them. Smurfs are NOT fun to go against. Third: My heart goes out to that Mercy, and all support players who have had to deal with something like this. Everyone deserves a chance to climb and grow on their own, not have smurfs (or anyone) ruin their game for them and de-motivate them.

  • I've had this happen to me quite a few times and have seen it a lot. It's usually a duo that just single a person out (usually a support player or a new player) and spawn camp them the entire game. It's awful and its just bullying. It only ever happened to me on alt accounts when they are new, and since I'm not new at the game, I could defend myself by simply going brig or lucio and wrecking them. Since usually these bullies are plat or diamond, it's not that hard to kill them. But it always pains me seeing it happen to others who can't defend themselves. This video just reminded me of one game I was in, on a brand new account for my tank role and a duo on the enemy team started to spawn camp our Moria. This Moria was just a kid that was brand new to the game. He was really nice and excited to play the game, and he was having fun on the mic and everything but that didn't last long. Once they started spawn camping him, he asked them to stop in the text chat, they were really mean and did it more. He realized what they were doing and that they weren't gonna stop and broke down crying, saying that "it's just like school". He seemed genuinely hurt. It was tough to hear. Video games are supposed to be a friendly place that people can escape into. These types of smurfs need to be banned.

  • We gotta find rosemary and give them some free therapy bc holy crap that was brutal

  • I’ve played a lot of games like this. ( in bronze myself) Basically the smurfs target an individual player because they feel like they are the “ easiest or worst “ player on the enemy team and just do it so that player rages and quits. I usually go back if this is happening and help that teammate that is getting spawn killed. I’d rather lose the match then have someone hate the game/have a bad day cause some people being douches as smurfs 😐 I don’t mind people smurfing, but doing so and only going after one single person to make them feel bad sucks

    • Hell yeah dude. I'd absolutely go Rein or Hogg or Sigma and help that Mercy or die trying. I think it's just good gamesense to wait a few seconds for your support to spawn if you've seen them just die, anyway

  • Rosemary is a real healer at heart ♥

  • I'd definitely be the one player who says, "Yeah, yeah. Go out there and chase some kills while I sit on cart." Then when the team is off the cart, I'd step off and end the match. I 110% do not endorse this buffoonery of holding the game hostage like this and will end it because screw those two smurfing POS. Rosemary is a trooper though. I'd be happy to duo with them on my Gold DPS role, but I don't think it'd be beneficial for their growth as a player.

  • these two should be banned from overwatch, smurfing is bad, but this is just being bullies for no reason on an innocent player. Rosemary deserves better than to get this treatment

  • The fact that rosemary’s team was probably screaming for heals most of the time

  • Solid video and glad you did plenty of bashing towards the smurfs as well. Poor Rosemary. As one of my mains is Brigitte, I've also had to deal with some games of this where they spawn camp the hell out of you and your team loses since unable to help in any way. Also have had other games as dps, once in a while as tank, where you kill them maybe once or even hit them with any damage and then for rest of the whole game they only focus you and do their best to make you miserable in every way. They ignore the payload or objective entirely and hunt you down even if a team mate who is nearby is injured or easier, they simply ignore and go after you as soon as they see you repeatedly until they die or you do lol. It's frustrating and not fun to play against smurfs for sure.

  • The fact the Ana tried to yeet the nade at Rosemary in the air at 5:50 is hilarious. Did they really think they'd hit that after missing the sleep dart?💀😂

  • This used to happen to me alot, I'm a mercy main and literally I would get fully camped normally because I was specifically mercy, I've had people throw my games coz I picked mercy and if I complained I would get told I was making excuses and was just bad , I've climbed since and am now plat . Go rosemary don't give up you got this 💪

    • Ya know I hate to pull out gender, but I seriously think its some dumbass dudes being misogynistic and hating girls that main mercy. I would see them do this constantly whenever a girl admits to being a “mercy main”, they would instantly get harassment or made fun of. It was so bad that my girlfriend wouldn’t even touch mercy because she didn’t want to be seen like that. My little sister was also scared of playing mercy for the same reasons. Its so sad man, like as a person who plays supp a lot, mercy is my 2nd most played, shes just a very convenient supp to play. But even if you like mercy just cuz you thinks shes cute and you connect with her character , there is absolutely nothing wrong with that either. Guys do rhe same shit with doom, genji, cass, reaper, etc.

    • @@chelronin7843 its always the genji or doom main too fr. I literally had people say I love upsetting mercy mains and throwing their games ... he then proceeded to throw my game obviously 🙄 luckily I was with most of my squad I usually play with so we pulled through without his influence. I will admit its mostly guys doing this too although once I did have a toxic girl moira main throw because I was a mercy main playing ana... who's my second main ...

    • I just started playing ow2 and just been playing qp, not rank, and people get mad there if you pick mercy. Had someone literally leave the game because of it. Comp seems like hell if that's how ppl are in qp

  • I've experienced this a lot in bronze where 2 Smurfs can control the game so much by smurfing one round and throwing the next, they extend the game out for as long as possible. A lot of us in bronze know we are terrible and try sooo hard to improve but people like this make the game unbearable. And they most likely bullied the healer because that person spoke up in chat about them.

  • I’m a low bronze, and you see a lot of the same people around. I’ve played a few games with the red team’s hog and he’s usually pretty toxic, so I’m not surprised he joined in on the spawn camping and Rosemary torture.

  • I had two of my tanks on a hanamura game do the exact same (I'm gold and was playing with my bronze friend) and whilst throwing on defend, my team 4v6ed successfully and cut the game short. After they start trash talking the enemy team for losing to us the entire lobby starts flaming them lmao. My genji potg proved my point that they weren't good at the game and should leave me/my lobbies alone

  • This is a great video Flats

  • As someone who got spawn-camped as Mercy many many times... Rosemary, you don't deserve this and I know you were crying like I was! They did absolutely amazing, though! They're for sure an amazing teammate.

    • @@Tlafsiy crying out of frustration of being bullied and not recieving help from teammates is totally valid, it can get super annoying

  • I remember when ow was released you can block people so you wont see him again on the match. But then one of widow main started to complain that everyone blocked him.

  • Smurfing has absolutely fucked the ranked ecosystem diamond and below tbh. My game quality is absolutely fucked because of how many smurfs there are down here. I will straight up go from a game where it is far too easy and the enemies are pushovers. To games where it is an insta lose because 1-3 players on the other team are clearly just not at the rank they are supposed to be and will wipe the floor with us. It's at the point where it's rare to find a game in plat/gold where all players are actually at the rank they are supposed to be. It makes games so much more of a struggle and just makes the game unfun in general. These selfish people pretty much ruin the ranked experience for everyone else. I don't want to play ranked anymore because of the way games are nowadays

    • Imo the experience is waaay worse in like 2k range atleast in the start/ending of every season. People derank at start and again at the end. +All the people making new accounts and deranking or ranking them up. I agree though that the experience in high plat has been incredibly unbalanced for a while. Also there are ALLOT of cheaters atm. Soo many people with wallhacks and aimbot/triggerbots it's insane. The difference in gameplay imo is still Waay worse in the 2k range because people get boosted to absolute shit. Like no offense meant to gold tank players but sometimes when I'm playing dps in like mid gold I swear half of the tanks I get have no idea what they are doing/have 0 thought process going on of what ults enemies have and just walk into 10 million damage for no reason.

    • @@Siks7Ate9 Spot on about the tank part lmao. Most misunderstood role especially in low ranks, even worse if they're queueing for priority passes

    • @@lemonzest_ I mean I don't mind if they are not good at tank, they are that rank for a reason. But if they make the same rotation 4 times in a row that didn't work the first 3 times and after the second time I make a suggestion that's valid and explain quickly why (like simply saying because it saves shield) and you quite literally refuse I donno.. Like I'm 2.8-2.9k tank, my profile is open. If we are playing Nepal shrine and the rein on our team walks main 2 times and his shield breaks mid way and he dies that's fine. But if I then say can we go via the mega and not main? It saves you shield because your not walking such a long way directly towards them and he straight up refuses because he says that it's not true I don't know what else to do. Like how can you not figure out that walking from the rooms with the mega towards point is a shorter distance then main? It just pisses me off because you literally lose games because ppl refuse to listen to anyone else. Even if i say look at my profile, you can think I'm wrong that's fine just try it once and it it doesnt work we do it your way again. They just tell you fuck you and feed again. Very rarely I get games where tanks will listen to suggestions/advice. I don't micro manage them or anything like that, I just ask ( can we go highground or) can I plz make the suggestion that we do this or that or rein can we play at a corner because they have soldier visor/deadeye or could swap this tank to that and I explain it in like 5 seconds of why. I never say that they are shit. It sounds like micro managing, but it like 5 times in like 15 min game. I don't tell them shield, hammer or whatever. If I ask for a hero swap I say can we plz swap zarya to Dva or sigma? It's not because you can't play zarya but her kit doesn't really work well against this or that and dva's does so you will have a much easier time. I don't tell them zarya is basically the worst pick against a pocketed Ashe and soldier and double shield comp on junkertown first point because you can't close the gap and farm grav because of the range etc.

  • This happens in my Plat games too. And for some unholy reason, they only do it on Temple of Anubis. 2-3 people from attack will spawn camp a single player, and vanish into thin air upon seeing anyone but that one player. It's usually a Lucio, Genji, Doomfist, and/or Soldier. It's always odd and by the 2nd or 3rd death, I just tell that teammate to keep "trying" because once the targeted player gives up, they either swap targets or return to the fight and dominate the game. I've had this happen at least 10 times in season 35, maybe 1 wasn't on Anubis. All ima say is that some people have a weird concept of fun.

  • I would actually love to see flats train rosemary.

  • honestly this just makes me want to make a bronze smurf just to find them and keep them in spawn all game

  • Yustice for Yessica, now it's Rustice for Rosemary.

  • I played against a Zarya that was nowhere near my level of skill, I was just playing a casual game with my friend. She was 4 stacked and they were all smurfs. Her aim was near perfect, and I checked the replay, she wasnt hacking. This person has gm aim, it was so fucking good that im almost positive they were on kb/m (im on console). Smurfs are 100% ruining the game. It got a little better when you had to connect your battlenet, since it created another barrier to make an account. I just dont understand what you get out of steamrolling people you know are worse than you, i know its just a game, but i get on after work with my friends to chill and relax. I already have to deal with toxic idiots, people throwing, and feeding teammates. And THEN throw smurfs tryharding on top of that. Its just too much man And a lot of people are pointing out bronze, but the middle area is affected too. When the occasional diamond/masters/gm smurf comes out, shit is so annoying. Or, even if the smurf isn’t that good, they usually bring in low elo probably into the match due to their low level. Making the game completely fucked, i’ve actually gotten brand new players a multitude of times (or people so elo they might as well be)

    • I see more diamond+, possibly kb/m smurfs in my games than actual new players. I use the find a group feature and the amount of smurfs that level accounts there. It gets so frustrating to play when i cant do anything against them.

  • As a lvl 1150 bronze rein main I can confirm that smurfs totally ruin low elo games. I know Im not the best rein but when I play with ppl who are like bronze healers but diamonds tanks they usually say I should be a diamond rein. I think they’re overestimating me but I think I could be low plat or something like that. Smurfs is 1 of the things keeping bronze players down and why they dont climb. I actually got in gold for 1 season and games were actually easier because of really less smurfs I also wanna encourage bronze reins. Life is tough out there for us bronze main tanks. Smurfs are keeping us down but Im a bronze player and proud of it.

  • Had something semi-similiar happen to me a few months ago. My DPS plummeted to high bronze in the wake of console "Flex-queue" throwers and leavers (I know I'm maybe gold DPS at best, just don't have the time to climb it back out from hell so I'm waiting out the release of OW2), and then the game that had me stop having fun on DPS happened. Enemy team had 2 low level accounts - support and DPS. Mercy pocketing a 76. I get no pocket, my tanks walk out of spawn to death, and I start getting flamed when I can't kill them. Because it's obvious diamond+ smurfs, tanks don't go double shield or damage eating comps. I get *MY* supports going "JUST KILL THE MERCY" "KILL THEM" when I'm getting wiped within 3 seconds of leaving spawn, not understanding that if I can only put in 6-7 shots before I'm dead then I can't get a kill, and the offense devolved into a constant stagger as the tanks spawn, leave spawn, die. On defense, tanks go double bubble, I tell them it's not gonna work (we barely pushed the payload to the first corner on Havana), they don't listen then the supports tear into me AGAIN for "not speaking up until after the game" when I say we should've gone double shield and zoned them, or at least killed the Mercy. I get it, I'm not at the level of being able to hard carry most lobbies, but when you get shit on during a situation that you barely have any control over it sucks the fun out of the game. It feels even worse when you have 2 guys flaming the shit out of you when you're the only other one talking, yet there's at least 3 other people equally responsible for the situation.
