Frustration Factor

30 replies 8 views Edited Sep 13, 2010

Okay, just a little curious...

 

On a scale of 1-5, with "1" being ZERO frustration, and "5" being COMPLETE frustration...

 

What is your FRUSTRATION FACTOR for this Multiplayer experience? 

 

I would put my own FRUSTRATION FACTOR at about 1.5 - 2. 

 

Uncharted or UNFUN (at times)?

I would say around a 3. Sure it can be frustrating, but there's nothing you can do about it most of the time. It usually depends on who I'm teamed up with/against which would change the frustration level.

It depends entirely on the match I'm playing.

 

I would say nowadays, my frustration hovers at or below a 2, at the highest. Most of the time, I just cannot be bothered to get annoyed by it.

 

A few games will have it pushing 3, if I've had myriad ridiculous deaths due to lag or Situational Awareness, but even then, I'll probably rage for a second or two and then be perfectly fine again.

 

Dunno, I guess I just don't have the energy to feel irritated with this game anymore. :smileyvery-happy:

there are loads of things that frustrate me

Sep 13, 2010

1) people who use SA

2) people who camp

3) people who glitch

4) people who dont shut up whilst you are playing

 

1) i know people have the right to use SA but it annoys me lol

2) people who camp should not be playing because its a cheap n nasty way to play

3) People who glitch should be dragged out into the street n shot (whats the point in playing a game when u need to cheat)

4) i know i shud mute but i tend to either be really sarcastic with them or just shut abuse.

Things that frustrate me:

(1) Ranking up faster than my skills are increasing; leading to...

 

(2) Getting matched into games where I am completely outclassed. Every now and then this is OK, but I feel like since I've hit the forties it's gotten a lot harder to find a match against players of similar skill. I tough it out and finish these matches btw, because nobody likes...

 

(3) Quitters, especially in objective games.

 

(4) The infrequently encountered bad apples (TKers, ethnic/sexual slur users, etc.).

 

All in all the fun factor>>>>>frustration.

Sep 13, 2010

The only things that annoy me are:

 

1) 60+ who are in a clan against randoms that are around 40 - 55. Appearantly, they can't kill us lower levels on their own.

2) People with Situation Awareness. Why would you need that? And why is it in the game? There isn't an other game in the world that let's you see the names of your opponents through walls.

3) People who combine SA with Launch Man, Rocket Man or Bandolier and abuse the power weapons

4) Teamkillers

 

But my frustationfactor isn't that high. About 1 - 1.5

Normally, it will barely scrape 1.

The frustration has been growing lately, I have noticed.. When I have to put between 8 and 12 FS bullets into someone for the kill yet they can turn and drop me with 2... Definitely goes up to a 5 then. :smileymad:
