Play to win, Live to win. People who yell are just trying to figure outloud why they lost. They can't hold back their tongues, I nerdraged so hard a few times over 20 pt losses and lost my glad title by 30 pts and couldn't get it back last season that I broke my monitor, broke a chair, broke my mouse, keyboard, and subwoofer... Costed me money, I felt worse than before I did all that stuff. Now I look back and laugh. I still get angry, but I remember... People who act that way in the game are most likeley not that way IRL, they are usually the shy quiet types that bottle everything up, and since it's a game.. INTERNETTUFFGUY and nerdrage begins.. I should be a scientist or something... Like the hulk, he was a scientist right? nono... Doctor?

o.O Really?

I get irritated from time to time when we lose due to some extreme luck, lose 30 points to a gladiatorteam or face druid/hunter but I rarely get really angry

I hate it when people get loud or angry because of a game and I hate it even more when they do it via Teamspeak.

Luckily I have found a 2s partner who also shares the "chill 'n play" - principle.. If we get fed up with something we get into something like a "synchron whining mode", where we complain about druids, our setup, druids, melees and druids, until we start winning again! ^^

raging is part of playing for me.
Same as trash talk while playing streetball
Same as acting like a clwon when playing table tennis making opponent laughing.
Laughing some1 dead in a shooter.
Flaming and raging - thats wow style :)

I get pissed off if my partner does something obviously stupid that might cost us the game especially when each win is so precious. I get pissed at my own self as well if I make a mistake.

But theres contructive anger and unconstructive anger. Getting angry and whining over something uncontrollable or without offering any solutions after a loss is a waste of time.

my right thumb had to be amputated for bashing into the wall to much, clearly arena loses wore the cause.

Hey everyone just wondering how many people get angry when playing? My partner does (gets real angry) and he says it helps, but it seems when he's that angry we lose. He does ok when he's not angry but latley he get so mad after 1 loss. We only got done with 3 games (won first one lost next 2) before I called it this week on his anger, it's not fun for me being yelled at over a game...Dont get me wrong, I'll get a little mad when things go wrong but nothing like him.

My experience in arenas is a little low since pve is my focus, I usually just do 2's since I can only pvp 2-3 days out of the week (tried getting on a 5's but never had time to play). So should I get another partner who actually has fun in arenas or are most people like this in arenas?

To answer your question, yes, find another partner.

I dont get angry, but I'm really focusing when play arena, depends on what setup I play though, since 2v2 with a dr00d doesn't require any really hard cordination, but when playing 2s, as I do atm, with a warlock, bough of us are really hyp'd about the matches, and high focusing, same counts for 3s as RMP since, everything needs to work. even though I only play 2s atm, crap server with no prober people ftl.

my vent is calm for the most part, 1 loss and its usually pretty bad. depending on how much bullshit caused the loss aka deathwish intercept, mace stun/mace stun/mace stun it can range from pure nerd rage to just talking about mistakes made during the game a bit more loud than normal. the best cure for total nerd rage is an arena match win. vent will go from rage mood to laughing within 10 seconds

I dont think its good or bad. If it doesn't make others on vent feel bad and your partners find it funny then its fine. If your partners get intimidated or pissed or think you're weird in a bad way then it's not.

Now to the "a normal human being shouldn't care so much about a video game" crowd - why not? I'd much rather be a normal human being that can have fun with emotions than be mr. serious who has to have everything regulated. Being random and behaving lively is a big plus communication, while being stale and protective is not.

Oh, on the subject, I don't really rage but I noticed an interesting tendency about myself. Usually when we play and my partner does something I find wrong I tell him. If it's a intense moment or if it's something that he can't really correct once already done, then I'll usually do a little explanation after the game about how we should play it and point out what he did wrong and how it affected the game. But when people pile several mistakes on each other it gets overly complex to explain what they did wrong my mind wanders off and not being able to explain what exactly he did wrong all that I can say is "You're playing bad. You're bad." or something similar :D

Also, when they fuck up too obvious stuff (like a priest fear-> trinket around a pillar from a warrior) then I'll often call them bad also :D

But since the people I play with already know they fucked up and listen to me, they usually don't get too depressed over it.

nerd-raging is just destroying your concentration and the concentration of your partners aswell. so nerd-raging sucks. play in the arena at ur best and to the end, then discuss the problems in the time you're waiting for the next game and then play again at ur best. nerd-raging isnt constructive.
