Hey Shwan, Im not sure what you are talking about. I didn't have any troll of any sort. People were professional with me and treated me great. Yes, one of my friends said "oh its a girl" (TWSS), but he was kidding. Either way, I dont mind the banter, but yes when I do help out I would like to put aside the gender difference thing.
If I could do more of the newbie mixes, I would do it in a heart-beat. I actually really enjoyed doing it.
I'm talking about when there were a bunch of people waiting to get into a game then realized you were female then didn't shut up making it close to impossible to organize anything. Now that I wrote that I can see why this was more annoying to me than you.
I think part of the problem (freakin addressed this) is that with all these new people and the new system of organizing it's simply not possible to balance teams, which is why freakin may have enjoyed the past mixes more because back then I was purposely balancing the teams and screening players.
Sorry that you felt overwhelmed Shwan. But I can honestly say that I had a fun time and I would be more than happy to help you out. I hope that me just being a girl would not prevent people learning a fun game. I feel I have a strong grip on tf2 and have a lot to offer the community. [On top of that I am not a stranger to leading people-- my team, school projects, and management positions.]
HOWEVER, in the future if you want to avoid certain situations that made you feel uncomfortable/out of control, feel free to talk to me so we can avoid those things if you guys allow me to help out.
