      People who beg you to let them win?

      How do you respond to people who beg you to let them win?

      One time I was matched against someone who said, "I'm one win away from captain, please let me win."

      I tried to convince him that rank doesn't matter; I said things like pvp is just for having a good time, and so on. But he kept saying "Rank matters to me."

      I gave up trying to argue and proceeded to focus on the match. Someone in the audience whispered to me, "Can you let him win?" I said "Why?" They replied, "He's one win away from captain." I said, "He has to earn his wins." They went on, "He says please please please." At that point I started getting annoyed and said, "Please please please means nothing."

      I ended up winning the match. My opponent's response was really mournful. He just said, "I was one win away from captain." He wasn't trash talking or being rude, he simply seemed very sad; but I couldn't tell if he was being a guilt-tripper or if he genuinely lacked self-esteem. I didn't say "gg" because I didn't want to sound like I was gloating. In fact I just felt really uncomfortable. I said again that rank didn't matter, but he wouldn't believe me, so I ported away.

      Did you ever encounter people like that in the arena? How do you react?

      Re: People who beg you to let them win?

      Yes almost everyday x_x I remember in 1st age PvP I meant this storm guy he was one win away from warlord, I know how hard storm can be I probably could have beaten him I was over warlord and ranked doesn't matter to me at all so I simply carded out giving him warlord. I felt like a good person xP But other then that I usually just ignore it nothing you will say is gonna make them stop. Good luck in PvP

      I've come across one and I've said, "No, this is a competition, not charity." May sound a bit harsh, but that's that.

      Re: People who beg you to let them win?

      I encountered someone like that once before in the mooshu arena, back when the level cap was 50 and the balance school was feared in the arena. She said to me "please let me win", so I said "why?" and then she said "I'll rank up". Naturally I didn't say anything to her back and just continued to focus on the match, and she would say "gg" before saying "ugh" after seeing my tower shields block her judgements. I eventually won the match, said I think "gg" and went on my way. She didn't say anything back to me after that either, so there's that at least.

      I don't like to let people win; I'll try to go easy on them if I can afford to, but I still want them to try to work for it at least, and if I win, great, and if I lose, then depending on the circumstance/situation as to how and why I lost, oh well.

      Re: People who beg you to let them win?

      A lot earlier in the game, before I joined Central, I did PvP a bit more often. I once came across a person in one of my few matches that said he was depressed. He was saying that he was crying and his parents hated him and that this game was all he had. He said that his friends would hate him if he lost and that he would lose them and then have nothing. He even threatened self harm if I beat him, and I let him win just in case he wasn't joking. If he was then he tricked me, but I wasn't sure if he was serious or not.

      Another one was a cheap strategy to win, where a person asked my friend what he wanted from the Crowns Shop. He told my friend that if he let him win he would gift my friend many items from the Crowns Shop. My friend wanted the gifts, and kept passing to let the scammer win.

      Some people are willing to try anything to win matches, because everyone wants that new badge, or new arena gear. They just don't like losing so they will do anything they can to win. It is really sad...

      Re: People who beg you to let them win?

      When I was a Knight on my Life, people would ask me that I'd just tell them no. I never asked for anyone to let me win either xP Even though I kept going from Veteran(I think) to knight repeatedly.

      No one really begged me to let them win anyways, once in a great while I'd come across them. This was before celestia came out though

      I usually say "Okay, sure." When I beat them, I say: "Oops, I miss-clicked sorry."

      Re: People who beg you to let them win?

      The thing is if you let them win, that only encourages them to keep on begging for future wins.

      But on the other hand, if you beat them, that reinforces their sense of low self-esteem.

      Being kind is hard. ;c


      Part of me is just resentful too. People like this ruin the playing experience for others, who are playing to entertain themselves, not to be some random stranger's therapist. But then, they can't help being the way they are. I:
