Raining out, good day to play video games. Think I'm going to play WWE 13 today.

Pretty much ANYONE in their right mind. Also anyone who likes to play competitively. Anyone who does not have friends who are gamers. Anyone too busy to drive to peoples homes to play co'op. So as you can see pretty much everyone who is in their right mind would play games online.

+ Not all online people are assholes. Iv met some cool people in online games that i still talk to 4-5 years later on facebook. I also usually meet a handful of cool people that i can play with and just have a good time gaming. Sometimes i meet some MMA fans even and we discuss the fights.

And if you dont have the thinnest skin in the world it should not bother you what people online say. Hell there is just as many insults anywhere else online as there is in gaming.

And quiet honestly if you dont SUCK and drag the whole team down then you wont get picked on. Iv had occasions were i was on a team and cause we have 1 lousy player it drags the whole team down and makes it damn near impossible to win. Id like to say that iv always tried to help those people but sadly that isnt the case. Iv gotten frustrated with them and thrown some insults out. But ALOT of that comes also from the fact that they wont listen. If you are new and dragging the team down then the very least you can do is take advice from someone who is much better then you. But half the time they would rather ignore you and just keep playing crappy... it gets frustrating.

But still it is all worth it when you meet those cool people and have a fun competitive gaming experience. Plus it does not hurt that you get to compete with people from all around the world. Its an aspect of gaming that you can NEVER EVER simulate in Single Player. (Though i enjoy Single Player games also)

I love Skyrim and im sure il also love the Elder Scrolls Online.

I have to ask man do you play conservatively?? Since you played LoL i imagine you are familiar with Moba games. Then you should have the basic skills and knowledge to stay alive. Attack/Quickly Retreat/Dont get Greedy/Baited for a kill cause most of the time it wont end well. If you follow this basic concept and let your team do the more pro stuff until you hone your knowledge of the game then you should not be bringing your team down. Not enough for people to call you names as often as you are saying at-least.

Also are you listening to advice?? Or are you just running in their and feeding the opposite team and ignoring what your team is telling you??

Iv played about 6-7 different moba games and iv rarely been yelled at just by following the basic guideline i pointed out above. When i do get greedy and get myself killed and then i start becoming a bit more reckless and sooner rather then later iv fallen behind and have become food for the enemy. That is when people would start insulting me. And as you mentioned above start sending me death threats haha.

Speaking of MMO's, it is confirmed you can play The Elder Scrolls: Online in full first person like you would any of their offline games. The combat is action based so you have you right click for block, left click for attack, etc.

I said I'd never jump back into an MMO but damn... a full first person Elder Scrolls MMO? I've also always said Skyrim + co-op would = best thing ever, so what can I say? I'm jumping on board (hopefully I get put into the beta).

People go insane whether you are playing poorly or not if you aren't doing exactly what they want as though it were the only way to win. I would have the highest score in almost every game and still get harassed by someone. Also if you want to play competitively get a team to do that with. Randomly grouped people is not competitive play it is one or two douchebags demanding that people they don't know do whatever they want.

Cant say iv had this experience often. And i play online games pretty much any time i am at home and not on forums.

And Randomly grouped people can be VERY competitive. That is if you can get a high enough rank/score for the game to place you in games with people off equal skill or higher. But when you are average and being placed in games with other average or sucky people then yeah often it can be not so competitive especially in TEAM games because just 1 guy that sucks or does not understand team work can make the whole team lose. Which yeah that isnt very competitive when its near impossible to win due to a shit player. Hell thats not even fun. Its actually the very opposite of fun for me.

My point is that is not competitive play. Competitive play is organized with teams that know eachother, have strategies, and use something like skype to communicate with eachother during it. If you care about winning so much then that is what you should be doing not getting angry and harassing people you don't know who are just trying to have fun playing a game.

It isn't even always necessarily that the other person is bad but that your play styles and ideas don't match up and you don't know eachother so you can't intuitively react to what the other person is doing.

Online games generally have trash communities because the people that actually talk and say things are generally either being mean or trolling. It's the vocal minority. It's the whole anonymous thing. I find it quite comical when people rage online. It's hilarious that they have so little in their lives that they take a video game so seriously.

That is truly a wonderful thing at times. I've stopped playing online for some time because I just feel too old to be playing most of the time when I hear children screaming in my ear. But every once in a while when somebody would scream and throw the controller and just generally flip shit it was always so amazing.

I remember a game of cod 4 once in free for all some kid came in last like ten games in a row and was on the verge of tears he was so angry and it basically just led to free for all become everyone vs this kid.

Oh I've never played LoL or any game like this. My friend bought me this game awhile back because he wanted someone to play with. I've been putting it off until last night when my Xbox broke. I have no idea what I'm doing for the most part but I gotta learn somehow. The tutorial can only teach you so much.

I don't die too often since I've been sticking to ranged attacks and then running away. The death threats usually come when they tell me to do something and I don't do it. Now, I don't mind listening to the occasional, reasonable request. But when people tell me to push middle by myself against 2 opponents, all the while calling me a f*ggot, chances are I won't do it. I play this game for fun, not to be seriously competitive. Like Osmium said, if you want to be competitive, form a team and make your own strategies together. You shouldn't join a game and expect everyone to conform to your needs.

EDIT: I don't mean you, I mean 'you' in the broad sense.
