I was playing World of Tanks over the weekend. In one game I was playing my Tier 7 T25/2, and I think I was doing fairly well. I ended up being the last tank on my team when I noticed that someone from my team was raging in chat. He was talking crap about me and how much I suck. I ignored him and did the best I could but was eventually destroyed and we lost. So I played another game and that one ended in a victory. When I got back to the garage I saw I was getting private messages. It turns out the guy who was raging at me before was still raging at me. "You're the worst player ever." "You should uninstall." The usual stuff, so what could I do? I ended up replying to him. I thanked him for his constructive comments and asked if he'd like to team up and battle together. To my surprise he did. We played several games together and this guy rages in every game. He was just ananngry person I guess. It was all very interesting.
A lot of competitive gamers (even with big channels/streams) mistake assertive for aggressive and that is like their whole thing, I've never understood that.. probably something to do with almost every FPS being garbage military indoctrination nonsense now
