It does truly amaze me how rude some people have become on this game, after such a short time passing. I've run into some egotistical comments that stunned me, as though their expertise in the game after beta is so engrained that they themselves are infallable. I am truly thankful that in exchange I have met some wonderful and kind people thus far. I suppose it just suprises me how absolutely necessary victory is, to some. I always try to be nice. I chat kindly, regardless of the personality of the challenger. Even when defeated by someone who's been rude, a flattering response on their game playing still often results in rudeness or silence. I guess you just can't let it get to you, really.
If victory is so important to some individuals, I'm becoming tempted to just hit give up when I see them. My win streak means precisely squat to me, I'd rather have fun. Yes, getting better is fun and fulfilling, but really....I got better by asking advice from those that whooped my @$$ up and down. lol. Even after buying cards, a lot to learn on how to use em. >_<
Seems like quitting those matches, really is all you can do, to return on topic. There is no way to avoid random matches and unfortunately, it's better that way. A system like that could be abused. Would be nice though. LOL.
