It's a minor complaint, but I'm too disillusioned to play this p2W disaster at the moment, so...

I admire anyone who can speak another language. That being said, if you want to use this classic when berating your teammates, the correct spelling is with one "o". Lose, or loser, are correct.

Compare with loose, which means the opposite of "tight".

Whilst we're at it, synonyms for "idiot" include "simpleton", "dullard", "ignoramus", and "WG Developer". If you are some angry child, and wish to insult complete strangers, based on their ability to play an arcade game, at least show some imagination.

Cheers.

Please also avoid "retard" and "retarded" which makes you sound like an American and therefore Edited.

Why is this an issue? You're acting like an angry child insulting complete strangers based on their ability to program an arcade game without showing any imagination. You can't expect much different in return.

What do you mean?

 

Like when I tell my teammates that they let their inner monkeys loose, it's not spelled correctly?

 

edit: Whoa I actually have a signature on this forum, holy crap! And over 1k posts. Oh wait, I used to be enthusiastic about this game many years ago.

What if my intention is to insult someone by implying he's not so tight?

​Yes, on sober reflection, that was uncalled for. No one is deserving of such a cruel epithet.

That prompted a thought (it does happen sometimes) ... why does the word 'lisp' have an 's' in it? That's adding inthult to injury.

I'm starting to sweat now. If I do get banned for making a joke about the developers, I will loose all credibility. Particularly as their recent policies have led to nothing but acclaim from their playerbase.
