So I've been told some stuff about the thread over at clan section, and heard what some people have had to say regarding me and Sanyo and 'laming' on SoL.
I understand that some of you get upset by our occasional laming, but I feel like this has been blown out of proportion with a 10 page discussion, and 1 year bans being discussed.
Let me firstly tell you a little about Sanyo.
He has been my friend on JK2 since day 1 and has helped me become the player I am. The reason some of you may feel that he unnecessarily lames you is down to a severe psychiatric condition he unfortunately has. He has a great deal of trouble expressing himself and has little understanding of rules or how to communicate with people, this, inevitably leads to him sometimes laming on a server, I am constantly reminding him on xfire of what he should be doing but sometimes I'm not always there or am just playing myself, we talk over xfire voice call and he does get very frustrated with the game, often screaming down the mic if he is sanctioned or even dies.
I hope this clears up why Sanyo behaves the way he does, and trust me it is very hard work for him to show the level of compliance that he does even now. I feel that his ban is totally unjustified in this regard, and I hope you can reconsider the administrative actions taken with this new information, he is suffering a personal battle and sometimes it becomes too much for him.
You must also understand that reacting to his laming is an incentive for him to lame further, while I understand it may frustrate you as people such as yodah and zelah cannot defend themselves, it may be better to either join spectate or hide to avoid this raging bull.
Despite his emotional and behavioural impairments I do feel this whole situation has been blown out of the water, we rarely do lame and if we do it is never for long, with very few exceptions.
I have no real excuse for my own behaviour apart from straddling alongside Sanyo's outlook. I am used to playing in a way that is fairly linear, i.e. a game should be played. It frustrates me to see some players complain they are not skilled enough, but spend their time not training or learning sufficiently. I understand that it is up to each player to do what they please with their time, but I hope this gives you an understanding of why I sometimes lame, if you are in the middle of a 1v1 or a ffa, expect to get hit.
I want to clarify that I, nor Sanyo, have any personal issues with ANY members of SoL, it is a good community and a decent server, although it does bother me that some players can be overly petty. I will, on my part try my hardest not to make anybodies gaming experience uncomfortable in any way, and I hope my recent behaviour on your servers reflect this. I will try my best to clear any discrepancies I have with individual players, and will enjoy my time from now on as a constructive and attentive community player.
As for Sanyo, I understand I am posting on his behalf and you may not see this as good enough on his part, but like I said earlier, he does have severe degrees of communicative retar dation, and I am simply telling you what he has told me and what I can piece together from the way he feels. I would be more than happy for me to take his month ban instead, and am fully confident that he can now try his upmost to integrate as a normal and respectful player.
