An essay by Edgeman

All credit of this goes to Edgeman who sent this in to me. I've become too jaded by quitters to write up something like this. On that note, if anyone wants to send in anything else about quitters and it makes me smile, I'll post it up. I'm talking about ragequitting haiku's or hatemail songs. How awesome would that be? Anyways, on to the essay"

The cheating situation is getting out of control. There are just too many losers out there. I can even classify them.

Street Fighter Loser Classification:

1) Normal Loser: Disconnect right before saving; admit it. The opponents get their BP they deserved. However, the losers send mail to tell the opponents they disconnected before saving. It’s annoying, but at least they have guts to admit it. These losers are very rare.
2) Special Loser: Disconnect during a match; keep silence. This is the most common type of losers. The opponents don’t get any BP. It’s a total waste of time to play with these losers.
3) Super Loser: Disconnect during a match; send hatemail. They are also quite common. You get one or more hatemails after the match. Again, it’s a total waste of time to play with them and they are annoying.
4) Ultra Loser: Disconnect right before saving; keep silence. They don’t affect the opponents’ BP, but they have no guts to admit the cheating. There could be many of them out there. You just don’t know about it.

Losers are losers. We should have no respect to them at all. However, they have different loser levels. Normal Losers wouldn’t affect anyone (BP-wise) and have guts to admit that they cheat. I consider them as the best of the worst. Special and Super Losers are worse, simply because they affect other players and wasting their time. So far all opponents of these three types know about the disconnection. This is what makes the fourth type of losers different. The opponents don’t know that the Ultra Losers are cheating. The Ultra Losers simply can’t face the losses like a man and don’t have any guts to admit. They hide in the shade and don’t dare to let people know that they cheat. That’s why they are the worst.

Why can’t these people have a little bit of dignity? If you can’t accept losing or don’t want to lose BP, simply don’t play ranked mode. Player mode is your playground, losers!

Losers have all kinds of excuses for disconnecting: it’s too laggy; the other guy is too cheap; many people are cheating, why don’t I cheat too; I don’t get caught, so it doesn’t count as cheating… Come on guys, there’s no excuse. Losers cheat because they don’t have the guts to play a fair game. They mis-valued BP. BP is used to reflect players’ skill level. The losers are simply missing the whole point of the BP system. I bet if there’s a button to increase BP, these losers would hit the button all day long instead of actually playing the game. Wait, actually, they would even cheat on that by putting a rock or something on the button rather than hitting it by themselves.

Guys, play with dignity!!

You know, "loser" also refers to someone who lost a match with dignity. Saying "We should have no respect to [losers] at all" is a) ignorant, and b) not a real sentence. Think about your word choice more, loser.

Sorry for the confusion. By loser, I mean the disconnectors.

I'd suggest just keeping this page for proof of disconnectors and hatemail writers.

Some guy writing an essay.....I could care less what he thinks..

Don't change the page, as so far it's been good.

A pretty average essay about D/Cing. I don't really find the classification names fitting at all since everyone's definition of what kind of "loser" they are and how "much worse" either of them are are going to be different.

Having an essay about people pulling the plug on an online video game makes YOU look like a loser.

What this site should be, in one word, is funny. With all of the ridiculous hatemail and perfectly timed quits, this site has the potential to be hilarious. That's a win for everyone: You encourage people not to cheat (or else be lampooned), everyone gets a chuckle, and you don't come off as someone who has very little going on in their life.

No seriously, that was pointless.

I agree. This place has been HILARIOUS so far. I've had a few ragequitters myself but I've been nice to them...until now (Remember that, boe2 and sasuke213). The next one will be put on here.

I still await if humboldtjay425 will sue for 25,000 BP for his domestic violence case after Cammy beat the crap out of him. He might have a case :D

Hah! Serious business! Message recieved. Just trying to add a little more content cuz I thought it might be getting boring.
I'll only post submissions that are in of the DC/hatemail/video variety.

disconnecting due to lag isnt the same as cheating provided you do it in the first round and not because youre losing the match. every now and then I get a 3 bar match that lags visibly, it turns SFIV into a totally different game when you cant even react to a jumpin. so I quit.
