Sure, you could just run the same play over and over again like that guy that just whooped your ass in Madden, or snipe from that perfect hiding spot all game like that kid that just killed you thirty times in a row in Call of Duty, but how lame is that? So lame that if it were a movie it'd be one you stop on when you're browsing Netflix just to laugh about how much it sucks? Exactly.
And that's the reason you lost, not because you weren't skilled enough to stop your opponent. Please. It's because you chose not to stoop to their level. Ever heard of a little thing called "class?"
Sure you lost, but it was the first time you'd played in over a week, what do you expect? You were rusty. Plus you weren't even your usual team, or you were using a different gun or whatever, and you tried this new strategy that you seriously like never use. Plus you were distracted because your phone kept blowing up and you were sitting in a different chair than normal and there was a glare from the kitchen and pretty much everything about that game just seemed a little off.
Granted, a loss is a loss, this one just happens to come with an asterisk. Let's see that same chump beat you after you've had a chance to warm up first.
Then it's game on.
