Well, maybe “bad manners” is strongly worded. People just have different understanding of what “casual” means since it’s the only indicator as to what the mode is supposed to be about. It would make sense for casual to offer a different experience than standard, ranking non withstanding. Therefore, using S tier ultra competitive decks in casual seems a bit shortsighted since it’s not really… casual?
I like the “I mean no offense” there following an extensive enumeration of pejorative qualifiers about people who complain about certain play styles. “Your mom is a lying, thieving, smelly whore, I mean no offense, though, of course.” Next time around, maybe consider not misrepresenting other people by saying they’re “crying” when they complain about something. It’s belittling. Same thing with “grow up”, it’s also belittling.
Complains from the userbase can be valid and lead devs to make necessary adjustments. There’s this trend going on to discredit every complaint as crying. It’s a convient discrediting tool: oh, he’s just crying, disregard.
Just putting this out there, if your goal is to really mean no offense. Because, as it stands, it comes across as barely veiled contempt.
Nothing says “I don’t have a leg to stand on” more than typing LOL at the end of a rebuttal, not to mention coming across as pretty obnoxious.
As was said by other people, fine tuning for standard in casual is not the most efficient way of doing things, it won’t prepare you for the current prevailing meta. I think it’s understandable to expect less competitive decks in casual considering it’s called “casual”. Nothing silly about that OP.
No, no, I completely agree with your opinion. I try to ‘friend’ people who end up wandering in casual with S tier net decks and ask the, “You know this is casual, right?” I wish the casual description would hint that a F1 racer might not want to show up at a village drift race. Of course, people can do whatever they want, it’s just poor etiquette or most likely, lack of awareness. We can’t really police what they do. They *can* ramp Druid in casual, it’s just sort of silly to do.
There’s this ugly side to the game of being obsessed with winning which translates in some pretty unsightly behaviour, like Mike Tyson beating up a toddler, “Look, I won!”, yeah, great job. I had this suspicion confirmed when recently reading “winning in standard is about being more obnoxious than your opponent” or “I managed to abuse Shickspitter as much as possible before it got nerfed!”. I’m not saying it’s the prevailing mindset, might just be a couple of slightly unhinged individuals, but there’s definitely a crowd who has no concern whatsoever for other people. I feel like the best way to counter this is to auto-concede against those decks until they kind of get the message they should head to standard with that shit. It’s great in casual to see decks which try something new and it doesn’t feel bad to lose against them because they tried something.
