Does hate from other players affect you emotionally?

I've been playing a lot of TDM on BF4 lately. I enjoy unlocking attachments for the guns and it goes faster on TDM.


Something about the way that I play really makes people upset. I'm not very good in terms of reaction time, controller skills, etc. I play the way that makes sense to me, which generally involves a defensive playstyle and exposing myself to danger as little as possible. Despite this, I often end up with the most kills and regularly achieve a 5+ ratio of kills to deaths.

A member of the other team who had an excellent score invited me to a party (I play on XBOX ONE). Assuming they were interested in a good old fashioned team stack, I joined up. One of the party members immediately started in on me. I can't play the game properly so I camp, etc. He insulted my intelligence and my integrity. It was pretty abusive and it was clear that the guy was genuinely upset. He had checked my "stats" on battelog and was putting me down about them.

I'm embarrassed to admit that the whole thing really affected me. I finished up some work today and was looking forward to some BF4 but the fun just isn't there. I understand that for some people the game is very important and they derive a large sense of their identity from their performance. For me, it's mostly about fun and relaxation, but I guess a part of me thinks it's important or I wouldn't be upset. It also makes me uncomfortable that something I do could cause someone else so much stress.

This happened on top of some others things, like angry messages and being kicked/banned from a few servers.

Have you ever gotten stressed about someone else's reaction to your gameplay? Do you get angry at people for the way they play games?

Hate from other players is how I get my daily recommended intake of sodium.

Passive Spotting is the future!

With this, I'll rid MGO3 of infestation. Sans bad gameplay MGO3 will be torn asunder. And then it shall be free. People will suffer, of course - a phantom pain.

Reddit and Konami will rewrite the records... And I will be demonized in human memory. But... The thirst for good gameplay that I have planted will infest MGO3. No one can stop it now. The Rebalance Mod will unleash that thirst unto the future.

If you play BF4 in a way that makes the other team's players be rude you're kinda doing it right. See the article on the "scrub" linked in Noctyrne's sig for further reference.

That is, of course, if you play to win, and not just for the lolz you can have doing crazy shit - which is another kind of player entirely (cf. Bartle's Taxonomy - What Type of Player are You? - Extra Credits - YouTube )

Memorable quotes not taken yet:


Of course, this ignores the non-constant cross-sectional first moment of area across the chest as well as non-constant material properties of the boob; it would be difficult to perform a more detailed analysis (as in, I'd have to have a shape function AND I'd need to derive a function for elastic modulus as a function of lateral breast coordinate) but whatever. It's 2am and I'm lazy.


I always believed science should be very hands on experience.

You should also answer this question I had posed in that thread: Would you be willing to pay your surgeon more if he was going to use a chainsaw for the opening incision of surgery? Clearly using a chainsaw isn't truly suited for surgery but that doesn't really matter. If he's "skilled" enough to be able to use the wrong tools of the trade, he should be rewarded for that skill right?

Hate from other players and frustrating them are the best enjoyments in any game.

Great advice from my Dad, that applies to pretty much everything:

Never let the bastards get you down!

As a related note: Shit like this is why I default the in-game chat to "Off" :P

Wow, great article, and thanks for the response. Usually I just respond to people's wall-o-text hate mail with "k", but I may start linking that article instead. It's not entirely applicable since this guy was an objectively better player than I am, at least in his specific world of TDM. That's not usually the case, though.

If "Playing to Win" in TDM means getting as many kills as I can while minimizing deaths, reviving teammates even when it's not entirely safe, always carrying an ammo box on support, etc. then I definitely play to win.



Thanks Sun, Viper, and cod for the responses also.

I think Sun's avatar is the cutest yet.

Anyway, you'll see my signature for a glorious collection of hate mail. Most of it is posted on my channel, but I treat in-game hate the same way. It is tasty.

Hate Mail

"you obviously don't know what an argument is as there is only one person battling. Do you really fucking think I want subs? You think you can act all big and powerful just because you sit on a computer at least 6 hours a day like the probably nerdy unwanted retard you are with 4.3k subs? You think 4.3k subs is a lot? LOL you need medicine man. I don't want any subs as i just have a google account for other media and writing comments. Think twice before you act. You even said in your video you aren't that great of a player, and the comments agree you aren't. Maybe you should once again think twice before you act, stop being such an annoying, ignorant bastard that everyone wants to shut up, and god, literally, just shut up. Your voice gave me a headache :s"

"As a youtuber shouldn't be trying to be reeling in your viewers with exciting stuff being said not your boring ass commentary for your video"

"The more you watch his vid the dumber he gets I swear he's borderline autistic look I got shot behind cover beacuase thin sheets metal are unpenetrable. Bf4 is just as quiet and tactical as bf3 random explosion in the background . Player has dissconected from chat
You started playing bf3 and never touched bfc1/2. Please do yourself a favor and shutdown your generic cod channel down"

"Nice clickb8 Faggot w8ting for your shit tier video to disable comments . Fucking newfag cancer go play some cod you activisiom cock faggot"

"I don't see why he [MarbleDuck] always tries to shit on levelcap he is better and has a million more subs...and also "there isnt a best gun in she game there are guns that are better that others at different engagement distances" yes thats true and whichever is the best/most average at all of them is the "best gun""

"Marbleduck you don't know shit lol levelcap knows more than you do you cant talk about how someone puts up garbage when you do yourself your a newcomer to YouTube acting like you know shit step up in the food chain first then you have the right to talk otherwise your just a fish trying to compete with sharks"

"Why don't we just witness "LevelCap vs MarbleDuck" One on One both on Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4 seen as there is so much Controversy about the Two Youtubers"

"stfu cunt, BF3 was way better end of discussion"

"Stfu man, you're be littleing the most looked upon Battlefield Youtuber. No one cares about you, how much of an ego you have, or quite frankly your opinion. It's a fucking game.... Does it really fucking matter? Pathetic man."

"fuck you asshole, dont talk shit about total"

"Wtf is your problem? You have no subs and he has millions, yet you pick on him like some kind of stubborn, ignorant, rude child born with a silver spoon is his mouth. It's easy to do that, for example... You said there was no background noise yet there is. You say you're a fairly good player, you're not."

"please talk like a normal person and not like a professional"
