When I enter competition there is a number of reasons why I join. Friendship is one big reason, because I want to help and be a part of something they're doing. Then another big reason is the theme, because I do have some themes that are hard for me. Then the rest is based on the inner working such as scores and etc.
Now I should of never joined this particular competition I enter some months ago. I was not comfortable with the idea to begin with, but a "friend" was running this comp and I decided to go out of my confront zone for them! Stupid me!
Well 5 months later, I was thinking of ways to drop out! I was praying to the sim gods to get eliminated! Now that is awfully long time to do something you're uncomfortable with and it's pretty long for a comp right? My competition started with it's first assignment in February and that comp started in December with their first assignment. No matter I wasn't enjoying myself and it didn't help that we spent more time waiting on people. Plenty of time to stop caring you know?
So finally after months of being patience, the waiting became too much and we complained. Now I wasn't really pissed off last night. I was more disappointed in the host flippant attitude, but now I'm pissed off. I stood up for this person! Got in stupid argument with someone even! Swore down they were a great host and this person could care less! They even had the balls to talk down to me and a friend! I'm furious!
Yes it is just a "sim thing", but FFS have some respect for the people are participating in YOUR competition!!! We're doing your comp for fun and if you're not taking time to make it fun for us, who the hell is going stick around for your little so called hobby?! That's too many competitions out there! So yes it may not be serious to you, but at least take account that real live people are counting on you to keep it from being a dragged out borefest! At least take people's feelings seriously!
Then the thing that pisses me off the most is I haven't complained one bit this whole time and suddenly I'm immature, because I told you the truth! Heck I held back somewhat! Well here's the deal! It's been tiring, long, unfair, and boring! Every time someone dropped out, it shouldn't have been non-elimination round. You have eliminate people to keep it interesting! The the gaps between scores should have been fixed a better way, because now it's unfair to get extra points solely on the fact you did something extra. Maybe had a judge's pick to better even it out? Then the due dates should've of been better enforced! And finally if you're too sick to keep up with it, cancel the damn thing or have someone in place to take it over! If you stated you're weren't feeling well from the beginning, we will would of been more understanding!
Sims or not, take some responsibility! There's no competition if the host can't even be bother with it.
Soooo to sum it up, I'm done with all! I dropped out with grace and even said take care of yourself. If the host wants to call me immature and rude for that, than so be it!
