    Random win: when it's just too good to put in random fail

    Came here to post about a thing that happened on gw that is definitely more win than fail, and I see this in random fail followed by a "well we don't have a random win thread..." so why not?

    No SS for the last part but Palom did LB at the end with a macro saying TWINCAST while Porom was dancing around

    Both weapons were Nexus
    So my post. The best thing ever happened on guildwork today:

    But then, the remix: http://guildwork.com/broadcasts/54af...2aa8398bab5905

    Random win: when it's just too good to put in random fail

    I don't know the guy personally so idc bout this much but seriously, the gw comments are rude as fuck. Glad I don't run in that circle or I'd be ashamed.

    Don't see what's win about any of this.

    How is this the "best thing ever"? I never understood all the public hatred for Mr Happy ... so what if the guy makes videos and streams games? From what I have seen of him he is an ok guy, makes serviceable strat videos and just does his thing. To each his own I guess, if people want to hate on him because he doesn't do runs the way they do that is their prerogative ... just never got why all the flaming.

    Same. He can be a bit of an elitist dick sometimes, but at that level, who can't?

  7. #7

    Isn't the major complaint about Happy is he takes a long time to get to the actual strategy/mechanics of a fight and sometimes his information is incorrect?

    My main observation with Mr. Happy and the people bitching about his videos (not him as a person), is that he actually kills things in his videos while the people bitching need a video to get them through said content that they've yet to complete.

    My main complaint about MrHappy is his voice is almost as annoying as he and his friends were at Fanfest.

    Seriously? They fuck with him because he's easy to fuck with and it's hilarious. Welcome to the internet.

    The guy went as far as to make an apology video for saying mean words on reddit for christs sake, how do you not fuck with him?

    His strats are usually shitty, over complicated and his info is bad and the reasoning behind why they do stuff is illogical. However, since he is MrHappy and shits out guides, people watch them and use his shitty strats and then people have to deal with bad pugs using bad strats thinking, HEY BUT MR HAPPY SAID THIS IS WHAT WE DO SO WE DO IT LIKE MR HAPPY SAID.

    I never understood why ppl use GW, why would you need a facebook page for your game character /shrug

    I like mr.happy's videos, he contributes to the community, don't attribute people being idiots with people using strats that you're not comfortable with so that's automatically a bad thing. In the end, people just love being haters, because they think they're above other people. To me this is just borderline cyberbullying. No, he's not a celebrity or anything, he's one of us, he's a FFXIV player.

    I don't hate the guy, I hate the community that he enables. By telling them how to do something instead of why they're doing it (and too much filler; rehearse please).

    It's nice to have one strat for everyone to follow. See: the JP community. But we don't always do that and people get their panties in a twist about deviating from a popular established strat.

    I'm of the opinion that bitching of this tier is a private thing but to each their own.

    If you really wanted to go the moral route, he's a human being, not just some other player of FFXIV. To further note, once he engaged in the retaliation of the initial comment on reddit in the manner he did, he brought it upon himself. As I told him there, the smart thing to do was to scoff it off and not bother replying, but he continued anyways to a point where he started taking rl pot-shots because he didn't like the opinion people had of him. But hey, let's discredit discrepancies people here have stated and chalk it up to, "Haters gon' hate." If he's contributing something incorrect, bad strats, or over-complex strats that cross with other players more simple and effective strats, then there's liable to be mass wipes since, like was already stated, "HEY BUT MR HAPPY SAID THIS IS WHAT WE DO SO WE DO IT LIKE MR HAPPY SAID."

    Frankly, for a random win thread, there's a lot of obsession on this topic which is making it not very win.

    This isn't advanced, why are you posting in advance? Back to noob forum. Oh, people trolling noob forum? Should have posted in advanced.

    BG is coming close to becoming the Tumblr of Final Fantasy.
