Forums - Gaming Discussion - Ever felt like you had an unfair advantage in an online game?

So I've just been playing Overwatch, and after a few rounds messing around on Oasis (Great map by the way, played it a lot on PTR), I decided I'd have one competitive game before heading off...

Saw the lineup, our team on average was 200 SR higher than theirs (We were 2124, they were 19XX can't remember the last two digits... I was 2076 by the way), thought this would be interesting since usually when I play solo queue we're within 5-20 average SR for teams.

Playing on Dorado, and in the first round it was their turn to attack. We held really fucking well, they never got past the first bridge for the entire four minutes, I was impressed with our performance... but then two members of their team, both in a group, started raging like fuck over chat (Not team, general for all to see, lol) saying how shit their team was and didn't deserve people as skilled as them, and left.

So basically, as the second round started, it was 4v6 in our favour, and all we had to do was push it past the bridge to win, which takes maybe 15 seconds with three people on the cart? I felt so bad for the rest of the team, since they put up a good fight in the first half, that I convinced our team to step off the payload and at least make it a draw so nobody loses anything... everyone was actually okay with doing that!

For the next few minutes the other team were telling us what they'd said in team chat and through the mic, so we all agreed reporting them for harrassment was the best option... but literally ten seconds before the match finished and ended in a tie, some guy from our team got up (We were all stood round in a circle sharing emotes and voice lines, lol) and pushed the payload over the marker to get us the win.

I actually felt really bad for winning, thought it was a little undeserved... but I guess at the end of the day; Shit happens. And I reached a new season high with 2109 SR (Previous high was 2084, started at 1925, I swear they still haven't fixed the ranking system yet, I deserve to be much higher, I've played with platinums and won piss easy, and that's while I was still in silver!)

Anyone else had any moments like this, where you've KNOWN you had an unfair advantage? Did you make use of it or try to be fair? Did you feel bad for winning or laugh like a maniac as you steamrolled your way to victory?

In ragnarok online, I had a card called Deviling. Getting it is really hard - 0.01% chance.

What it does is it reduces neutral damage by 50%.

A lot of the powerful attacks in the game were neutral based - such as a Champion's Asura which is used to one shot people with.

With the card equipped, I was taking half damage than other people.

I was able to hide it for over a year until people started figuring out that I was weak to elemental attacks l0l.

Good times.

 

I didnt feel bad or anything since it helped me be elevated as one of the biggest threats when it came to PVP in the server I played in. I remember wearing my deviling and my co-leader's Ghostring and laughing at all the Champions doing their attacks which are suppose to do like 20k+ doing like 1,000 or less instead.

Back in the day RO was that one game that I always wanted to play, but this was back when it was P2P so I never got a chance...



In Street Fighter V online occasionally I will find myself fighting against someone who is just standing there not pressing any buttons as if there was no one playing on the other end. I try to finish those people off as quick as possible before they start fighting :p

Yes, when I picked Cloud in Smash 4 online.

How is this considered an unfair advantage? Care to elaborate? :P



I have a few times with SPlatoon and Smash. There were times where the opponents in SPlatoon only had 3 members, while we had 4. It feels unfair, but.. what can you do? Just take it, haha.

Also, sometimes in Smash my opponent will have worse lag than I, so it usually results in an easy win for me. I'll take those wins I guess, haha.

Yeah, kind of. I cheated in Ragnarok Online. Not technically, it was an exploit that wasn't patched and had been in the game forever and there was no penalty for doing it, but it wasn't something 95% of players had access to. Basically, there was a boss who summoned a ton of lesser mobs. You'd heal him, keep him on the tank, and kill everything he summoned. Big guilds would do this for days at a time. Put a lower level character in the party and they could level up in no time at all.

With that, I got a second knight to level 99, which was no big deal, but I also got a Vitality Alchemist to level 90+, which was a big deal at the time, because they were nearly impossible to level up otherwise when all your points were going into defense. Anyway, with her potion ability, he was nearly unkillable in guild battles while using an acid ability that broke armor. I used to get hate messages over it, which was pretty cool.
