Does having a big over inflated ego come with the title of gladiator? I mean all the shit talking, name calling neccessary? After all its a GAME. So what if someones bad, not as good as you. Does it make people feel that much Bigger that they may not dedicate their entire life the way they do.

I've always enjoyed playing with IRL friends and guildies even if it meant lower ratings cuz we had FUN. E-peen seeking arenatards just kind of deter me from wanting to be apart of the PVP community. Seems the fun has been lost to people expecting Perfect game play, obnoxious personalities and SERIOUS BZNZ.

Anyway thats my /rant.

I guess it's unfortunate Blizzard doesn't hand out 8th place ribbons like the one's I got in 1st grade field-day. How dare they create a competitive gaming environment where people can't pick flowers and grow vegetables together

Not sure why people are dunking on the OP when we all know what he's talking about. I can count the number of chill top 0.05% players I've played with on one hand. Some exist, but the dumbfoundingly large egos that gladiators get combined with poor social skills due to the amount of time spent playing this game is just a recipe for disaster.

And I'm not even exempting myself from this. There are times when I was an absolute blowhard Dbag to people I barely knew. I might not have been nearly as confrontational/douchey as most (jahmilli, kaylorqt, fadez, etc) but looking back I can't help but feel disgusted/embarassing with the type of e-personality high end arena seems to turn you into.

Using a "competitive environment" as an excuse to act like a whiny 14 year old sport is not a good point. I Like competitive sports, games, events.

Went to regional nationals for basketball in highschool. Did I go around yelling at people calling them trash and garbage because they lost? No. If I did I'd be making a fool of my self for doing such. A large part of why people do it is because they can hide behind the comfort and safety of their computer screen. I mean why have dignity when you have full anonymity?

Pretty much. You never hear an arena player say "Damn, they really played that well" after losing a match. No, instead you get "god they are so BAD why the fuck did we just lose to BADS". Part of it is Blizzard's jokeworthy game balance but part of it is also inherent to the type of player that is drawn to the competitive aspect of a soul/social/life-destroying game like WoW.

... you should've understood by now pretty much everyone who beats you in arena is "omfg bad i farmed him on alt".

But indeed, the competitive arena community in general seems to be infested with people who're underachieving irl and turn to games to serve them as some sort of validation.

I found the best solution to that problem is to not playing WoW at all.

this is a really stupid thread.. if you can't handle dicks and assholes than play skyrim or any other non online based game.  complaining about an issue like this doesn't help your case either.

Anyone who is higher than me is a no-lifer and everyone who is below me is just bad.
Old and overused quote but it sums up the situation pretty well. :)
Oh sometimes everyone above you is shit aswell xD
