    i play mass effect 3 multi-player,usually silver,but sometimes bronze,to build up my inventory,or for challenges. all my characters are level 20,so i feel like i'm cheating when i play bronze levels. i try hang back for the early waves,jump in when things get hectic,but i wonder if lower level players resent level 20 players in bronze rounds,even though they share the experience points,and don't have to use up their inventory. i also play bronze rounds on my girlfriend's profile,as she is a nurse & doesn't get as much time as me to play,so i build up her inventory as well,but i still wonder if i'm spoiling other player's fun?

    Over time I'd grow to resent you

    Put spaces after punctuation. Use paragraphs.

    Perhaps you should submit your question here:

    God, that's painful to attempt to read.

    But, on a related subject: if you're playing Starcraft and your response to a 'gl hf' is 'thnx u2' (or variants thereof) I think you're a tosser who was probably fathered by feral wolves.

    I don't play Gears 3 for this exact reason.

    And because it is awful.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Admittedly I haven't played the ME3 multiplayer in several months but back then I didn't resent high-level players in any way unless they were acting like idiots (and even then I was merely slightly irritated).

    Then again, there aren't that many possibilities for dickish behaviour in the co-op game, even with stronger characters dominating the map as there's always something to do. The worst case were probably experienced L20s that were booting new players from the lobby just because of their low N7 ratings.

    @disusedgenius oops,my bad! nope,that's not me in starcraft. the feral wolves thing could still be true though.

    I hate it when fighting games players refuse to play when they are a higher level. You'ld think that it's in their interest to nurture and teach whatever small community there is for these games.

    Mass Effect 3 has multiplayer? Whose stupid idea was that?

    I'm a grumpy bastard.

    I hate it when fighting games players only ever use one character.

    My experience of SC4: 1 Mitsurugi and then Kilik x 20

    When I first bought my 360 I bought Gears of War.

    @RobTheBuilder So what you're saying is that you're shit at the game, got in a sulk and threw your toys out of the pram.

    @MrTomFTW Essentially yes, although there is exaggeration for comic effect.

    It was simply a case of never being able to get any better due to constantly being taken out. I wanted to get better but it just became a futile exercise.

    My experience of Gears online was:

    Die a lot, kill someone occassionally. Get insulted continually by my team mates that refused to give me any form of guidance. And then when I did kill someone I would get abused even more because I somehow stole their kill.

    Then I turned it off never to play with such hateful people again. I have played other games online and none have ever come close to Gears for the level of abuse.

    Well I would suggest firing your gun in the general direction of nearby enemies. From your post you seem to have forgotten that part. It's pretty important.

    @MrTomFTW I kind of presumed that would be taken as a given!

    I got that bit.

    It was more a conversation like this:

    "Paz your shit, fuck off. Go and get a decent weapon and stop chainsaw noobing my kill, twat".
    "Where can I get a better gun?"
    "Fuck off, cunt. If you don't know where the guns are you should be banned. Fucking noob cunt".

    And it was not just one game either. I played a few rounds with different people and the more experienced players just picked on someone to abuse. It was not always me either.

    It was quite a long time before I went online again. I think the next game I played was Burnout Paradise which was a much friendlier experience.

    Had a similar experience with Gears too...

    When I killed someone, others got upset because I stole a kill...
    When I ran to help a teammate and took out another dying enemy next to him I was stealing the almost dead guys' kill...
    When I panicked and chainsawed someone I got insulted for being a noob...
    When I finally got into a match where it was just me against two dudes in a clan and I managed to fluke a headshot with a sniper rifle they left and insulted me for being a noob...

    Did find a few matches with nice people who communicated a bit (pre party chat IIRC) and they explained that using the chainsaw is a no-no...Also using the shotgun in close range while dodging was frowned upon...

    Never touched Gears again...
