If I want to quit, I usually wait till I win a game, because I don't want people to think I'm salty.

I never give up in online play. If I'm a one man team in Halo 5 losing 5-22, than so be it. Though then again, the experience isn't enjoyable to say the least.

I'm the opposite. I love rounds where the other team is either decimating mine or putting up a good fight because it means I don't have to hold back. I find rounds where my team is dominating to be boring.

I agree. In Splatoon for example, matches with balanced teams are much more fun instead of dominating the other team.

That's noble.

I can see why it can be annoying for some, but the thing I've noticed a lot from those that find it irritating is that they fail to notice the other player not having fun on the losing side. They fail to see the equal frustration that the other player is feeling, yet that tiny amount that do just shrug and go "git gud", which never breeds positivity from that kind of exchange.

I'm actually glad that some games out there allow for the player to "surrender" to the other, especially for those that know when they have been bested, but it's unfortunate that those who seek to be "in it to win it"fail to accept surrender as a legitimate option to use when you have been bested. Not everyone loves having their face dragged through the mud, well after victory has been assured for the other player. If I know I've been bested (and I know myself more than anyone else) I'll toss in the towel and move onto playing another match. For those games that offer the use of surrendering to your opponents, I'll take up on said option, for others that don't, well I try to avoid playing with other players and instead opt in for co-op modes or Humans vs AI.

 

Tbh I think most games should offer the option for surrender, rather than opting to look out for one side and not the other (especially when one side is suffering frustration and all the other side can do is just piss all over them and expect no consequences)

Games where my team is getting trashed are also fun for me. I always try to go Rambo on those, try to be a one-man army.

It never ceases to amaze me how vital the results of a virtual competition are to real people.

Except if you lost 6 games in a row and quit right after winning your first one, then you still look stupid either way.

Why the need to specify "virtual"? You know, there actually isn't any difference between virtual or non-virtual competition. It's people competing against each other to be the winner, it's all the same. There is nothing less relevant about a competition just because it is based on a videogame rather than any other kind of game.

A valid point would be stating how stupid it is that people get salty over mere online ranked matches, which are in most cases barely any more relevant than friendlies.

In video games, you are pretending to fight. In actual fighting, you really do... in fact... fight. There is a difference.



Welcome to online gaming!

...and the more competitive you get, more and more stuff like this happens.

Kebabs have a unique attribute compared to other consumables. To unlock this effect you need to wolf down a big ass kebab really fast, like under 10 minutes or so and wait for the effect to kick in. If done correctly your movements should feel unbelievably heavy to the point where you literally cannot move at all.
