Who else thinks its understandable what Im doing?

48 posts in this topic

I won the FA Cup, which of course means I am in the Community Sheild. I was player against Sheffield Wednesday, who I did not expect to beat because they are the IT team of my game, having won the league the last two years, three times all together.

My theory about never beating them was getting closer to being confirmed after they scored 2 goals in the first 20 minutes. To my suprise, I came back to win thegame 3-2.

Needless to say I was chuffed to win a piece of silverware that I didnt not expect to win. But, my laptop sometimes gets over heated and turns of by itself. It did so straight after the game before I got a chance to save it.

Now, its my understand that if I won the game first time round then I was always meant to win the game. So I told myself that if I lose, I will quit the game over and over again until I win. I have now restarted the game about 10 times and have failed to win and its really annoying that after beating them once it seems impossible to do it again.

Would anyone else do the same in my siuation?

It's entirely up to you what you want to do, and don't let others influence you.

Will you be happy to continue if you did that?

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">How could I have returned to the fixture screen and see everyboby elses results? There were no other fixtures. It was the COMMUNITY SHEILD. Its just one game. No other competitions had even started. Teams hadnt even had there pre season friendlies yet. No other results would of held any other significence.

Also, it wast at the team talk. It was after the team talk. I was continuing the game, gettin ready for the friendly I had coming up when it happen. Even so, it wouldnt matter because my laptop turned of BY ITSELF. Its not like I had any control over it. I am not cheating. Why would I purposly reply a game over and over again that I have already won unless I had to?

Also, I dont deserve the win because I have a dodgy laptop and because I knew I have a dodgy laptop? Dont see the logic there.

Sorry, but I saw absolutely no sense at all in your post.

Needless, I have finally won again and saved the game straight after. All is good. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Obviously I was pointing out what screen I was talking about when I said the screen where you CAN seen others result i was just given a example of the screen I was talking about (and it worked as you knew exactly the screen I was talking about)

Also OF Course it would be your fault if YOU haddnt saved after your game and YOUR Laptop shut itself down. You knew that it was dodgy and would shut itself down if overheated. Either dont leave your Laptop on for so long or constantly save your game.

Final point Why are you so defensive about my post. If you dont believe you are not cheating then fine. It rests on your shoulders. Dont see why you need to get so defensive unless there is something to get defensive about. Bizzare.

Shaun01 i see absolutely no sense in what you are saying.

Personally i have done this before myself, i don't see it as cheating because you have already played the game and you have won.

Whoa there is no need at all for the abuse that I am getting here especially from "Get a life" And D.doyle(are you insinuating that i am bullying him?)

Read my first post again. Ill even quote it for you:

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">Personally , and this is just mu point of view it depends on when the laptop crashed. You say it did it straight after the game. I take it you mean when you are giving the team talk.
If it was then I understand your frustration and can understand why you are doing what you are doing,

BUT if it was back when you have returned to the fixture screen and you can see everyone elses results then you are cheating. You knew your laptop was dodgy and therefore you are at fault and you dont deserve the win, you may aswell have played a 1-4-5 formation as it is still down to human error.

IMHO of course Wink </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

The first paragraph I point out that what he has done is UNDERSTANDABLE

The second paragraph I point out a scenario (which has happened to me by the way) that if you get a good win and then don't save your game after then if something happens it is your fault. Im not saying his scenario is his fault i am saying that if you have had the chance to save and you didnt then more fool you.
Where in that post does it say that he is at fault for his situation? I dont like I have said I understand what he did and why he did it.

From there his post become more aggressive in tone with plenty of SHOUTY words thrown in and I found it strange he got so defensive about my opinion (that he asked for). I found that strange (and still do). Well sorry but im not just going to be shouted at for offering my opinion(again, one i was asked for).
He goes on to call me idiotic just because he disagrees with my opinion.(again defensive and more aggressive in tone than needed in my opinion). Again I'm not going to just take abuse lieing down.

To some up I said what he did was understandable. I then went on to give a situation where I think it would be cheating if a certain series of event (which have since been clarified as not having happened) But the point still stands and I still believe in my opinion that if someone has had the chance to save the game and CHOSEN not to then replaying the game is wrong and something I wouldn't do.

I don't think he chose not to, I highly doubt it was a conscious decision after winning a big game, why would anyone choose not to?

It was simply that he hadn't saved YET. I do not save every 30 seconds, but then that is in part due to me trusting my laptop.

I guess he took umbrage with the fact that you told him in no uncertain terms that he WAS cheating if he went through to the fixtures screen, which he would not've been. Who's to say he would've been cheating even if he did have and see the other results available to him? At the end of the day, he won the game first time round, and he has a right to that win no matter what, because it was the original and true result.

Even if he went another month without saving.

whs, but ask yourself, if you lost, crashed, reloaded and won, would you keep reloading until you lost?

I generally can't be bothered to keep replaying until I get the same result, but I have done once or twice. Most notably was when I was managing the Faroe Islands in CM03/04. We pulled off a magnificent 1-2 win away to Portugal, who would go on to be World Cup and Euro finalists in future years, which gave us a very real possibility of qualifying for the World Cup for the first time ever (I'd been managing Faroe Islands for 7 years and 3 qualifying tournaments in which we'd finished no higher than 2nd bottom) so when my PC crashed I kept replaying that until we won again because it was a once in a lifetime result. Infact, so once in a lifetime that after 10 attempts I ended up adding a manager to Portugal to try and throw the match by the same score before resigning again.

We did qualify for the World Cup in the end and it was one of the most exciting experiences of my CM career so that was plenty justification.

Generally I'm lucky now though that I rarely get crashes and when I do I lose a month and more of play generally so saving and reloading to get all those results the same would be a life's work!

I am a big advocate of saving before or after (or both if you are so inclined) each game, because I have had in the past where I have lost weeks or months, and it really makes me not want to play that save again...really disheartening.
