Toxic matchmaking

Sadly, I have come to a point where I am not able to enjoy the game anymore. Not because the game is bad, because it is in fact very good!
It's more about the people that we get matched up with, and the inability to play with friends because of the maximum rank range. Very often, almost all the time - I am forced to play alone, and that's horrible! The game is even more so defined by communication and teamwork than CSGO, and without a positive team that speaks and motivates - The team just crumbles. Every single time.

This does not apply to every single match though, once in a while I meet really nice people - and that is so appreciated. It's only sad that many players may not be in a positive mental state, and that affects the gaming experience. Aka, tilted gamers.

I'm pretty sure someone might comment on this post and say like, just quit the game, I am overly sensitive or something negative etc. I kind of expect that to come, its the world wide web and people can comment as an anonymous. I mean, sure just come with it.. but we should all learn to be more human to each other and just enjoy the game or whatever it is. Being toxic is not helping for the ones who are already in a bad state. You might be an indirect-killer who inspires someone to suicide. This does not apply to me, so for anyone who thinks I am in a bad mental state. I just try to enjoy a good game, as much as possible.

I could say much more, but I won't.
For the sake of others, think about what you say and just relax in the game. It will help you win the game, and regardless of a loss or win... just be okay with it. It's a game, a game is meant to be enjoyed.

I think, maybe I would like NA servers more. I prefer the fun over skill.
Yes, a lot of EU people have a hard time communicating in English... I am very fine with just simple comms like Yes/no or just pinging though.

I mean NA is more fun and in the end you get ranked with people that are +/- on the same level as you so the actual skill doesnt matter aince your rank will just increase

you have to be the person who starts the positivity. do your part to pump positive vibes into the team. hype them up, compliment them, say some fruity shit to make them laugh.

I am actually trying to be positive throughout the game, and saying good job/nice try/we got this etc, regardless of how much of an disadvantage or level of mistake they do. Sometimes it works if we are more than two who are positive and motivating. When it is only me, it's rather hard

right, it certainly doesn’t fix everything. but it comes from the viewpoint that we can only control ourselves and how we comm/play, so i try to do my part. and it’s not for everybody, sometimes i like to just play and comm only when necessary.

toxicity is a problem though. my gf agreed to play with me, and her first ever game resulted in her being called a “c*nt” and both of us being told to kill ourselves during the last round. bottom frags were the ones talking shit, typical. it’s laughable now, but both of us were new to FPS games with team comms then, and it was a shock at the time.

That's so messed up. I don't understand how people are capable of saying such words. I am happy to hear that you guys are able to laugh it off now.

I only experienced toxicity once in Singaporean server. Perhaps it because i rarely play it and got lucky having pretty tame teammates

India has had internet properly for around 5 years, many dont know what internet etiquette is, it will take another 5-10 yrs for that sadly

I wish it was that easy, especially when the game is so dependent on comms. Sometimes I do have to mute certain individuals though, because of excessive rage or just trolls.

People are toxic on EU overall. No matter the rank. High immortal/Low immortal/Radiant. All complain since the first round. All cry. All backseat gaming. Overall toxic community that came mostly from EU CSGO. But it is what it is, cant do anything.

Same in na it’s the same in every rank in every regions there’s already going to be toxic people and it’s so annoying

It's so sad actually... I mean, most people just want to have a fun game after a long day of work or school. That sense of excitement disappears so fast when we meet such toxic people.

Feel the same. Tried to play this game back after more than 6 months:

My experience:

First map: no communication at all, ended 5-1 because the other team surrended
Second map: better communication, ended 6-2 because the other team surrended
Third map: no communication at all, lose the game and tilted and didn't touched the game anymore.

The threshold for surrender is amazingly low in this game. 8 out of 10 games, I match up with people who WANT to surrender. If my team is leading, the other team has a full argument going on in /all and either ends up surrender or trolling the rest of the game.

I keep giving the game more chances because once in a while, I can play with some friends. Then it is actually fun, but yeah.. I have been thinking about it, and maybe just go back to CSGO. I am global elite there, so the people are a bit nicer in random matchmaking (Though I probably play like LEM/Supreme now after some time with Valo)

I would say it is as bad as CSGO but I'm ELITE silver master 2 on CSGO so maybe that's why haha. Yeah you should only play with friends I think will be the best experience but you won't rank up that way tho.

#33

I don't care much about ranking up or down, since I am in it for the fun of it. So yeah, definitely I would prefer playing with friends. Unfortunately, friends cannot always play together. So, sooner or later one will have higher or lower rank than the rest

If you're tired, just mute all of them before match start, or take a break for your sanity.

Thanks, I will try this for once when I feel tired. I think I am giving people too many chances, like even when I am tired. So... maybe, I should just once in a while do this

i think there should be a limit on toxicity. Being toxic to the enemy is all part of the game, to trigger them and affect their mentality but being toxic towards your own teammates doesnt make any sense. Not only you pulling down the morale of your team, but its also making them performing bad to worse. Ye i know sometimes some teammates are just very bad and you cant resist but to blast at them but when it comes to a point where they whiff their shots because they are having a bad day, i think we should just accept it and be more tolerant.

Exactly, this is even applied to big tournament LAN's where teams are faced to each-other "bantering" from one side to another. So in that way, it's part of the fun being "rivals" and competing. What happens after and saying gg (not ez game) is then good sportsmanship.

Being toxic towards your own teammates on the other hand, does not make sense at all as you said and I could not agree more with you on this. Wish more people could just think like this, it would make not even e-sports better - but also in general.
