Ha ha, i know exactly where you are coming from buddy. I had some fun matches with friends on xbox as well.
Unfortunately most matches are populated by morons who get a boner over quickshot spamming and winning with the same character 99 times on one map. What skill eh!!
As for those players you mentioned, sounds typical, i bet they were spamming you with messages calling you a noob and a scrub etc etc.
Best thing to respond with is "cool story bro" They usually shut up after that.
In re5 the story and mercs mode were garbage, but versus was great.
In re6 the story and mercs are great and versus is garbage. XD. See you around.
Do you still play? I think I had deleted you when I was getting swarmed with merc requests as it looks like you were playing a new game (always feel bad doing that- wish the buddy list was bigger!)
No real hate messages luckily- and I'm too old to care most of the time ha, I knew one passingly, before learning about his bad online reputation across many games and I know his partner after a few helpful exchanges on mercs before this, and they were mic'd, just kind of talking among themselves, so that at least wasn't as bad as it could've been, but it's just...not fun, especially when everyone is telling you that you are lagging and offering to build a new lobby- and just get back messages of 'nah- more fun to play with randoms'. I personally get blah if I'm hosting a room with 2 friends who I know are good and we get 1 good person and then 2 obviously newer players- there is just really no fun in that at all, but to each his own I guess and next time I just won't join.
