Gaming Rage

The time I talk to Hulk and he talked back.

For years now I have been a passionate gamer but I was never really good at it. When I was a MMORPG (Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game) player, I spent countless hours playing, leveling my character and becoming better at player killing.

The environment there was always great. Spent most of those hours voice calling my allies. Cool guys, people I still keep contact with after all these years. It was always a thrill to fight together with my clan, and we laughed a lot too.

Quite recently, while playing a different type of game (a multiplayer online battle arena), I played duo with this guy I met on the forums. These were his words before adding me: ‘added so long as it is not netflix and chill im fine with being chill xD’. He seemed nice and wanted to voice call. I agreed.

First game, he did well and so did I, but every small instance that something even seems to go wrong he would start getting rowty. Yet, he controlled it.

Second game, I play a perfect game. “I’m pissed off! I’m pissed off at this team.” he goes. Even though we pull off a really good game, he was so unsettled. I couldn’t concentrate, tried to calm him down with some words to no avail.three quote

It seemed as if he wanted to control everyone and everything.

I managed to avoid him for a whole 24hrs. The following day I thought I could give him another try.

We played the game, we did awesome but lost a fight and he went beserk.

“This is so sloppy! Everyone is so sloppy, I can’t believe it! You’re so sloppy, this isn’t gonna work!” uttering furiously.

With a calm tone I said to him, “Calm down, it was only one fight. We got this.”

“NO! I can’t calm down! I’m angry!” he barked out.

I felt like a parent to an 20 year old kid, went to the voice chat and disconnected him. I wasn’t gonna let him have that attitude with me.

I played the game which we won in stomping fashion. Right after ‘Hulk’ unfriended me from the game and deleted the voice chat. Quite mature.

He was a good player for my rank and expected way too much out of others. He couldn’t handle a negative situation. I wonder how he handles life.

I’m sure he was in such a low rank all because he could never bounce back. That is what all rage does, it cuts the bounce to your step. Go play single-players, son.

I'm a 30 year old soul, whose need to express himself was not satisfied by the common social media. While others vomit words with little thought, I will try my best to fill the void they have created. Born, raised, and reside on the cursed islands of Malta. I studied Sciences my whole life and always wanted to have a space where I can release my creative demons. In this blog, scientific objectiveness will meet the cry of different opinions and thought-invoking tales. Subjects will vary from the futile to the world changing.
