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

People that quit right after winning are just as annoying :p

It's not just versus where it's annoying. Co-op as soon as it doesn't go perfect people tend to drop out. single player is better, at least AI sticks around and you never have to wait for them, nor do they make annoying noises. AI > humans. Let the revolution begin!



I play a LOT of Overwatch and I refuse to leave a match in a game if I'm losing, but if I'm the only talent on the team and nobody is helping with the objective, I'll just do nothing, or maybe make friends with an enemy and we'll have a dance off somewhere on the map, or I'll tell them where my "teammates" are in text chat, lol. It's no fun playing a team based game when you're the only person actually putting in any actual work or effort... when it gets to that, I just toss it off, but never leave lol.



That kind of stuff is unfortunately pretty common.

I remember it being especially bad in FIFA when I tried playing that online once. Was impossible to win a match since every single time I took the lead the other player just disconnected, they wouldn't even try to come back and draw/win, they'd just give up as soon as they went down by a single goal. Pathetic really.

My enjoyment is very important to me, especially since I have less time to play.

If you crush me in SF and I didn't have fun at the same time, forgive me but I have better things to do than play you again. If I had fun and lost then sure I'll keep playing.

Enjoyment is the deciding factor imho



I dont know the online of SF but salty about losing? 

I never met in my 33 years of life one person who was happy about losing in any game. I mean every game not only videogames. If you know someone, please tell me that scientiest can take a look at him.

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)

You have to look at it from the other side. You don't know how many times the person played. Maybe before your matches, he had 5 other games that he lost. And basically didn't want to waste his time. you're good, I'm crap, move on mode. In overwatch people will quit on the character selection screen. They've played the game hundreds of hours. They know a comp will or not work. They deem the the match a waste of time. They simply DC. I give the team a chance. If we fail. I don't bother continuing on with them. Reque with other people.

These are good very good replies, thank you. Both are good explanations why someone might do this. I agree with this. Still, I believe that even when you lose you should finish the game, just to not spoil it for your opponent. You can simply stop playing after you've officially been destroyed and then go play something else instead. Works for me. Somedays I lose every fucking time and some other day I'm in a better condition and win more often. I just accept it and give it a break.

I don't know why but making people rage quit is super satisfying to me. I honestly enjoy meeting super salty players just the fact that I'm so good that it pisses them off is funny to me. On the flip side I never get salty I'll go against someone that kicks my ass forever that's the only way to get better

@Pagan: here, read what collint0101 said: losing is part of gitting gud.
