A common trend in the game I play called League of Legends. I don't understand why they think playing a game gives them an excuse to be a douchebag. Sure some sorts of trolling can be fun when a person really deserves it, but there needs to be a line drawn somewhere.
Perhaps it's the internet tough guy mentality, because when they lose...they become way too emotionally invested in that loss. They have poor anger management skills and lash out at those around them. It's very irritating, and I'm already contemplating on playing with other people.
It's like watching 14 year old kids go apeshit and yell on the mic. Dumb Xbox live kids get mad at something so they decide to spam the mic.
The worst part is that my friends are of college age, and the level of maturity they display is rather sad. They are good players and very intelligent, but absolutely the poorest sports during competitive play.
It seems people never lose with grace or win with humility anymore. Maybe games bring out the worse in people.
Do any of you guys have friends that are assholes in games but normal in real life? How do you confront them with this? It seems they are unaware of their actions.
