I have a confession to make, I did it again.
The ExTP from the first story wanted to play original Unreal tournament against me. He knew that I am very good at this but he wanted a challange and he is not a bad player himself. I've accepted the offer.
I will have to get a little bit techinical here to explain what I actually did.
We played Morpheus 1 vs 1 : We played two games with victory at 30 frags.
The thing is that I calculated too much once again.
Since I know how fast player can run I can calculate how much time he needs to get somewhere or pass by a certain point one I saw him.
Also I calculated wich weapons he can encounter in that direction of moving so I was always fully aware of his strategic options and in what ways he can harm me.
I made a list of all respawning areas on the level so once he respawned I knew where he is on the level.
Here is how this logic works:
Since I see that he is not at some points and I would have seen him running in this moment from where I stand if he respawned on another place, which in the end means that he must be inside a third tower.
Since I already checked what he can find there I knew for what he is capable of.
Also I made a routs for me so that I can pick up as many power ups as possible. Since I knew how he is moving around the level I was able to lunch many kinds of missles in a direction that they will hit where he should be in that moment.
In short, I have destroyed him completely.
Suicides and accident give you negative points.
What I am actually asking here are the questions:
From social standpoint would it be my "job" to at least allow him to get some points which would stll not be enough for him to actually win?
He wanted a hard challange but I am not sure that this is what he had in mind. Even if he was interested in another try.
Would you ever think that opponent is investing this much energy against you?
One more question that is more about MBTI.
Would a senseor be making so much analysis in his/her head during a game and think so much about the things that are not on the screen?
