I Love This Game, But...

StevieManWonderStevieManWonder Posts: 2,102 ★★★★★
I love this game, but sometimes it is just a straight kick in the crotch. I just found out that I lost my job due to COVID and am now unemployed, so I tried opening up a five star crystal to try and cheer me up some.
Welp.
I awakened my Blue Cyclops.
Yeah, that's on the heels of a streak of 15+ bad pulls/useless dupes. To make it worse, Blue Cyclops was the last new champ I pulled.
So yeah, I love this game, but I shouldn't have relied on it to cheer me up.

    That’s called addiction...

    I mean....I get it, but the game doesn't know you lost your job. Lol.

    Obviously, that’s why I didn’t say something like “How dare Kabam not give me a Beyond God Tier six star out of a five star because I had a bad day!” I was just saying what happened to me. I didn’t suggest or say that I thought I was entitled to a good champ, just thought that maybe it’d turn my day around.

    There’s a sliver lining in all dupes iso, shards, Arena points but yeah that’s still disappointing

    Hey man, it's okay. Things will get better. I know it's hard for you right now but just push through and things will get better! You've got this!

    I would tell you "it all works out in the end", but that is simply not true.
    The best you can do is hope for the best, learn some new skills, and to be prepared for when the world opens up again and is ready to hire.
    In the meantime, cut non-essential spending(like mcoc), and figure out ways you can save

    Thanks man, the good thing is that my employer told me that they’re hiring everyone back (I work for a large casino) once they reopen, so I have that to keep me going too
    that's great for you!

    I don't think you're helping here...
    What can we do to help? Lol. I sympathize for sure, but there's nothing the game can do.
    This might be new for you, but if you have nothing nice or even useful to say, don't say it.
    First of all, back are you?
    Secondly, that wasn't meant to be insensitive. My comment is being exaggerated. I said I feel for the guy, but the game isn't something to depend on for emotional support. I speak from experience. Been there. Things are going bad, so you play the game to take your mind off it. Then you get more frustrated because you can't focus, you don't get the Champs you want, etc.
    People in the game can be there for you, for sure. My Ally Members have been very supportive. The game however, doesn't care. Lol.

    You think I care about the Points on my Profile? I do not.
    Yes, it was taken as insensitive, so I explained my comment. I apologize to the OP if it came across as such. What I'm not doing is having a side-conversation about my participation on the Forum.

    @GroundedWisdom Yeah, dude, losing a job is a serious matter, that ain't helping much mate.
    No one said it wasn't. I was making a point. A point I explained later on. People are reacting as if I said no one cares he lost his job. That's not what I said at all. I said the game doesn't know he lost his job. Meaning we can't expect it to give us a break because we all know how the RNG works. Talking to people and reaching out is helpful. Which is exactly what's going on here. The very valid point I was making is it's better to talk to people and recognize that the game isn't a solution than hope for something to come along in the game which gives 5 minutes of reprive. It's a game. It doesn't know our struggles.

    Losing your job is terrible. It's scary. Even more so during these times because everything is uncertain. I get it. I'm not heartless.

    Come on man lighten up some. I'm sorry to hear that about your job many many many of us are having a tough time. But if I was down and out like that and I popped a Cyclops I'd be hysterical 😂
    I'd be upset too. Lol. I hear you. My concern is for after as well. I'm not sure about the States, but here in Canada, it's going to take a long time for the economy to recover.
