Random Korean walks into our channel, asking for a game. I told him about the Korean community’s #MeltyWay channel, to which he replied “I know”. I have no idea why he wanted to play with a Singaporean on higher delay, but I decided to kindly give it a try.
Connection is delay-7 (even worse than my rage post a few days back). Korean stranger proceeds to pick C-Nero. Of course, I am completely unable to finish a single BnB with F-Sion, while his Nero manages to score a few simple combo hits thanks to his multi-hit jC. I promptly die, unable to DP on reaction because the command comes out too late, and even my ABC burst fails to register.
“Thank (you) Singapore. So funy (sic),” was his reply before he leaves the channel.
I so badly wanted to reply “fuck you”. You pick Nero, win because of delay, then proceed to say “so funny”. Okay to be fair, I understood the true meaning behind his words — he was probably just trying to say “I had fun”. But the overwhelming rage I felt the last time I played came boiling to the surface again, and the only reply I could think of at that time was those two words.
RIP Melty, this is the current horrible state of the game.
