Relying on sessions or just doing things with people you know?
Have you noticed the number of sessions or the variety of games that people post sessions for is on a dramatic downturn??

Through talking to people who've used the site for a number of years, the frustration element has reached a breaking point for many. It seems there's a prevailing thought that some of the newer site members just don't seem to understand that a session is supposed to benefit everyone concerned, not just the person who posts the sessions.

I've noticed some are quite willing to burn their bridges, not realizing that people wanting to boost 360 games are on the downturn, so pissing people off on the website is not the brightest idea.

Now I know society has a shorter, more selfish attitude than in the past, but you would have thought even the most selfish individual would try not to burn their own bridges, but oh no, they do it anyway!

If you have a niche game, or something that requires say 8 or more honest people turning up, all of whom own a headset & don't jump a cue to get say 'Come 1st on a grid with 24 people' you are guaranteed with the new attitude (got my achievement, time to leave) I personally don't fancy dealing with the douchebag element of the site.

We've all witnessed this type of behavior & none of us like it. So if you have an attitude such as one well-known abuser of the site who will screw you over at the drop of a hat because he has a 'policy' of 'if you are not Polish, he will screw you over and leave as soon as he has popped his achievement' is it a surprise if someone refuses to deal with you?

I've been on the site for years & I've seen just about every excuse for shitty behavior known to man. But the new people who join the site don't have really good examples of how to boost games effectively when all it really requires is the ability to communicate, a certain level of trust/coupled with honesty.

One of my recent sessions was hosted by a host who couldn't organize 2 different lobbies for Dead Island! Seriously. He couldn't get people into either a party (360 or One) to organize just two games in a row where everyone even idled for 15 minutes.

If you are a cheapskate and cannot buy a headset for boosting purposes on 360 games, considering the cost you are at best an embarrassment in my view. You'll buy new games, but cannot find a headset so you can communicate with people in your sessions? Really?

Have you seen an increase in sessions where the host is hinting he doesn't have a headset by including session notes that feature the damning statement "Headset not required"? Communication not required then, or sociability, or common sense.

It's almost a new trend of throwing common sense down the toilet & trying to make sessions more difficult than it could be, how about simply replacing a cheap headset that came free with your console. Here's a link for the cheapskates. A replacement will cost you £0.50 which is less than a bar of confectionery of your choice.

https://uk.webuy.com/product-detail?id=0882224035330&cat...

Other retailers are of course selling the same product, & I'm not endorsing a retailer. It's just an example, to show you how dirt cheap a 2nd hand headset is, even if money is tight. I guarantee those making excuses buy 'Mocca-Choca-Latte-Social Justice Warranty' overpriced drinks, but outright refuse to buy a replacement headset.

So how about instead of hamstringing sessions, and not mentioning you even own a headset, how about you 'invest' in a £0.50p headset to not screw up the next session you apply for? Does this sound reasonable? Does this sound like common sense??

Alternatively, why not turn up without a headset and ask me how to complete R.U.S.E. 3 player missions spamming me with messages. You'll probably not be even deemed worthy of a reply, because you are taking the utter piss out of other boosters in my opinion.

I've about 90 multiplayer games left I have to boost, from co-op campaigns to multiplayer, and very, very few games ever have a session created. Have a nose to see how many from the following on the sessions diary part of the website.

Here's my list for example, some of which I intended to double-box.

Now I might consider doing Battlefield 3/Battlefield 4/Battlefield: Hardline/Bad Company/Sacred 3/Left 4 Dead/Various Call of Duty (see above)/Destiny (inc all the dlc) if I could find normal, balanced individuals who like doing things the easy way, who own a headset.

For example, with my method of doing the awards in Bad Company, i'd expect you to have all the awards in two sessions. Want to do it the easy way, boosting the same time, 5 days a week for a couple of weeks?

Personally, even after offering to throw people an account or providing advice where people don't even leave say "Thanks" or bothering to mention in the feedback if someone went out of their way to help them I can certainly understand people just giving up joining sessions with 'Randoms'.

If you are normal, social, have a headset & want to do anything above (Don't mention Quake 4) especially if it's a quick multiplayer/co-op campaign. My prior friend's list was deleted because I was sick to my teeth of reading cringeworthy, self-congratulating comments! So feel free to get in touch, but leave the 'crawling/sycofancy' and user mentality at the door with me, because it will do down like the proverbial lead balloon.

I'll post sessions for the end of the month to collect say people who want to do something with larger numbers, and then organize suitable sessions. You'll find my sessions professionally run!
