It infuriates me when I load into ranked and see half the time everyone else on my team doesn’t even have level 4 mastery on their champs. Ranked is supposed to be serious? Play champs you have some experience on.
A few years ago, I cosplayed Ashe and was proud of myself. Then this guy came up to me and ragged on my costume. He then asked what rank I was. I told him I was unranked. He scoffed and said he was in Plat and that I was not a true fan.I then proceeded to tell him that I couldn’t play ranked because I was studying to get 2 science degrees and that his high rank meant that he had no life outside of LoL.
I want to cry every time my support sacrifices themselves to save me. I always say sorry for not being able to do anything, but then they respond with “Don’t worry, it’s my duty to save you.” You, my friend, are the support we need but don’t deserve. <3
I’m a diamond player and I switch to my unranked account, then go into bot games. I only own support champs on this account, and I just support low-level players. I usually throw in nice things to say and sometimes tips if I know the champ well enough to offer them.
gamers we all lose our cool at some point.
We may be completely calm with our friends being new to a game, but we
lose our minds if we don’t know who it is that is feeding like that. Maybe a hit box is too big or small which
effects our expectations in the game, or lack of communication from
teammates. Whatever your rage is, I want
to get to the heart of it. Within my
personal experience the breaking point has been people intentionally doing
things bad. The afk from a game seems
the most heinous but I find those who intentionally hurt the game play for
their team to be the most reprehensible.
game above shows one of my ranked games in League of Legends. The Kennen was supposed to be the AD Carry
and people get upset when others deviate from the norm. (Kennen isn’t a standard AD Carry
champion) In this case our mid laner
Twisted Fate got upset and decided to run down each lane and give the enemy
team kills. The Kennen had not fed and
was building normally; he kept up with cs in lane and had good mechanics. Our mid laner was having none of it
though. He decided that they were a
troll, so he was going to feed every lane to make it “even” in his mind. Legit he typed in all chat asking where the
jungler was then went to him in the jungle to give him a kill.
Games takes a strong stance against people who make it difficult for others to
enjoy the game; this is a team game and with the way the meta shifts you need
to play like it if you want to win. Sona
mid can be played, that doesn’t mean it should in ranked games. Just because
attack speed Soraka can be built, doesn’t mean you should and that you deserve
praise. Even if someone on your team
picks something that seems to make you upset doesn’t make you in the right to
intentionally feed everyone on the enemy team.
next chapter I will be working on is about emotional health while gaming. The main topics discussed will be:
communications skills in game
skills for when you or a friend rage
the exception of one friend, all of my friends get upset at a game at some
point in time. Sometimes we don’t pay
attention to how we are feeling outside of the game which will bleed through
and make us aggressive towards others.
(Ever been hungry or tired while gaming? That is what I am talking about)
More often than not people are trying to find an outlet for their anger or for
entertainment. I see behavior that is
aggressive and harmful to a person if they keep it in within a lot of the games
I play. I am one of those people who
needs a physical outlet for anger. It
doesn’t matter how much I game because I will still have the need to get
physical tension out via a punching bag or cardio.
also want to explore behavior that is socially accepted, but not
acceptable. I am talking about how
people know and understand the salt from the MOBA community but nothing is
being done about it. We know that this
behavior is there and Riot is considered very progressive with their reporting
system to try to curtail the behavior and yet it still exists.
