Wasted the past half hour starting the summer event on a pet site I belong to. So mad.
Decided about a month ago I was probably not going to use the site anymore since they make it near impossible to "hatch/grow" the pets you win in events without spending money. (Seriously, I've got like over ten ungrown pets in storage and nothing I can do with them. Some have been in there since around when I joined the site, at least over a year or two!) Even if I wanted to spend money (which I don't, not worth it, though I thought about it--once
), they only take credit card. So what's the freaking point of winning anything?? Saw they had a new event going and decided to try it out anyway for whatever stupid reason. Got through the first few games, they were okay.
Then a stupid dice game that was obviously rigged (I mean, it was actually PART OF THE GAME that it was rigged, but you don't know this unless you go complaining in the forum, so I wasted a good deal of time before figuring this out!)...somebody gave advice on how to "win" the game by calling out the cheater, but the advice made no sense because I've never played actual dice. (Based on the other user's advice, you'd think everybody plays dice every day!) Still, I started clicking at random and managed to call out the cheater...but I chose the wrong dialogue options, apparently, because it just took me back to play another round. And then it didn't offer me the chance to call her out again! I won the game purely by chance, God knows how or why.
I figured the most annoying part was over...but nope. Next game is one of those horrid logic games where you have to figure out who did what to what in what order and whatever. I posted a thread asking for help with this, though I didn't know what kind of help anyone could give--I'm so awful with logic games that hints won't help me, I would literally need somebody to GIVE me the answers, and I don't know that that's allowed. So I didn't even know what I was asking for in my thread. All I can say is that playing logic games, for me, is as much fun as doing algebra--when you have dyscalculia. REALLY. NOT. FREAKING. FUN. The exact OPPOSITE of fun! Decided to skip that for now and check the next game while waiting for any answers.
And it's THIS piece of s***:
WTF even is this?? I don't even know what you'd call this type of game. But obviously, I have no idea how to play it, and even if I wanted to it'd be no fun whatsoever, and so I can't. That's TWO games in a row I can't complete. Meaning I can't solve the entire game/event.
I went back to my thread and said you know what, never f***ing mind, I'm out.
Really FUN summer event! Making people give up in frustration because of how stupid it makes them feel.
But here's the part that stings. I've felt similar frustration in much easier events on that site, but everyone else just takes it in stride. Everyone else seems to get it! I NEVER see anyone else get as stumped over things as I ALWAYS do! And based on how they type, I'm guessing most people on that site are in their teens or twenties--half my age. Yet far smarter than I am. And that hurts, to have gone most of my life thinking I'm at least moderately intelligent, but nope, I really am just THAT stupid.
Stupid f***ing game. Should've stuck to my resolution not to go back to that site. I mean it now. No fun anymore. No point. Even if I could get through this stupid event I'd still be unable to afford to "grow" the pet, if there even is a pet (I don't even know what the freaking prize is!), so screw it.
Not proofed. Maybe later, I'm too angry about all the wasted time tonight. So if this post changes later on that's why.
