After playing a fair amount of griffball this weekend for the bonus playlist, I encountered many a player who would randomly betray their teammates. I'm not talking about accidentals when trying to kill an opponent, or even about taking out a teammate who gets the ball then refuses to try to score - I'm talking betrayals right from the spawn - or killing a teammate because he has the bomb. Can someone who participates in this activity answer one simple question - Why?
What purpose does such behavior serve? Are you confused as to the objective of the game? Did you forget what color you were because you were red last game and are now blue? Were you wronged by someone you know and now you feel the need to return this unkindness in any outlet you can? I have sent many (less lengthy) messages to many such betrayers - yet none have responded. Although this post bears a hint of sarcasm, I have honestly not written this to generate insults - only to understand the thought process by which such behavior occurs. Thanks for your honest feedback. Jedi
