Being a Jerk?

This wasn't in intentional, but it happened last night. I was playing on Silver with my Shadow. 2 were obviously noobies and one was at my level if not better. The two noobies, for some odd reason just followed me around, so I decided that I'm going to ditch them with SS and such. After Wave 4 or 5, I was looking at the record. I was 2K behind the other guy. So I decided to using Electric Slash where all the enemies are perfectly lines up and got like 2 to 4 kills with 1 Slash. The 2 noobies was an infiltrator and a melee type Krogan. In essences, I look most of their kills during the normal waves. I didn't really care who it was, I just killed everything in sight. with SS.

When the objectives came, I did the same thing and minding my own business.
- Hack the System: When I saw any enemy, big or small, I would just SS them to death before my allies could hit them any more. I spam Electric Slash whenever I could so no kills for them as well. I didn't stay in the hacking area much of the time
- Eliminate Targets: I ignored it. Instead I just killed whatever enemies I could find.
- Stop the 4 Signals: I ignored it as well. Instead, I was getting bored and wanted to do some Over-Cover Grabs. I did 8 Grabs. Just waiting with Cloak on and letting enemies get into cover. The timer was getting low and I wondering why they haven't done the last signal yet. To my surprise, the rest of my team were all dead and waiting for me... With 20 seconds left, I decided to get the last one done.
- Extraction: I arrived at the scene with 2 seconds left, but for some reason it was a Partical Extraction. Am I to blame? Come on, if it wasn't for me, they wouldn't even have an extraction. :(

At the end, I was just 1500 points above the other guy and I felt proud, somewhat. I got 2 votes for kick after that game. Not that I care since it was 11:30 pm and that was my last game for the night, but was I really that bad/evil?

PS I left before actually being kicked. It doesn't really matter. Besides, I never stick with the same crowd, ever. Know why? They always leave before I do anyways. The good people never stay around.

You didn't help with objectives. What more do you need to know?

Yes, you were a jerk. But it's a game, no big deal.

Would it be better if I only help with objective and not do anything else?

Yes, you were a jerk. You put personal glory ahead of the best interests of the team. You even admitted to hogging kills and deliberately ignoring objectives... and somehow you're surprised by the fact that you got kick votes afterwards? IRL, you might have gotten punched in the face.

Somewhat ironically, it seems like the "last straw" might have been missing the extraction, despite that being the one thing you didn't deliberately be an ass about. You have to admit though, staying away from the rest of the (admittedly stupid for camping the LZ) team and trying to dash in at the last second, only to come up just short has a really bad look to it.

But hey, you got top of the scoreboard! And that makes it all worth it right? A completely pointless, arbitrary number to prove you're better than 3 other people...

No, it'd be better if you helped out the entire time.

I don't VTK jerks... I just give them a little of their own medicine... for example last night I was running a level 1 kroguard with a disciple on silver... I was host and the map was set to hydra... at the start of wave 2 3 more people joined, on round 5 one of them left and someone else joined... he was a Salarian infiltrator... he got high score at the end of the match and said on his mic "Oh my god, I joined late and done the best, you must all suck" He never left, so I hopped onto my Demolisher had another game on Hydra and tripled his score and asked him if he still thought I sucked... he left the lobby without answering.

I hope you are trolling, TC, because if you're not, you have some obvious issues...

Hack: Stay in the circle with everyone else when feasible. Be prepared to missile if fighting reapers/collectors. As a Shadow I will occasionally dip out of the circle to SS a high priority target (Phantom, Dragoon, Scion), but I always come back to the hack.

Escort: same as above

4 devices: As a Shadow, this is your best objective. You can do it easily with duration cloak. Otherwise, keep an eye out for enemies while standing a bit away from the person who is doing it. Don't go killing stuff on the other side of the map, as they'll just respawn in worse places.

4 targets: You should be taking them out. No exceptions. If you can, try missiling to switch the spawn over to a smaller target that you can take out quickly.
Package: Worst one as a Shadow, but if you come to it first you might as well do it. If someone beats you to it, it is your duty to guard them.
