I really do. I have been called many bad things on this board. I've been mislabeled as a troll many times, but i really do love you all. Even the online warriors that aint crap. Marvel has one of the most interesting and diverse communities out there. I know many people think very poorly of me, but that's ok. I still love ya
Literally the only people I've ever met that I didn't like in the FGC were online warriors, and even then only like 2 people ever. I love this community with everything I have. It's a community that at it's core understands the fundamental human condition of needing excellence in action, even if it's 'just a game'. Because once you become excellent at something like this (something competitive), the illusion goes away that you were ever playing a game. You really are just exploring a choice space, a dance of the minds with who you faced. Competitive martial arts, or fighting games, or chess, or even discussing philosophy, math, or the sciences. Because it really isn't competition, its cooperation. It's teaching and learning. It's instruction. In defeat you gain knowledge, and in victory you teach.
And I can not ever imagine a better activity ,and people attracted to this activity, to do so with.
<3 all around.
If you put in a lot of work, you're going to have an advantage over those that don't.
