Well, Bloodlance, apparently lots of insane people like to play STO then.

Because lots of people obviously don't care that they are losing. Sometimes they'll even charge into us and jump up and down until killed (http://thepurge.net/public/goodjob.wmv).


This is by design. I've seen Jakelope comment that he doesn't mind losing as long as there's a reward for it. I think he meant to take the sting away from losing but in doing so he made a lot of people stop caring about winning, which ends up ruining the game.


It's like if the chess league paid for $100 for winning and $80 for losing. Lots of people would start playing chess just to lose as rapidly as possible. You'd destroy the integrity of the game.
