Same old, same old?
a raging story
I played a game today in which I randomed Lina. I am usually a midplayer, so I asked if I could go mid. As usual, no-one responded, so I took that as a yes. But everything changed when the Vodka-nation attacked.
I see our second player wanting to pick Drow, but not quite picking until the enemies had. Naturally, I assumed Drow was decent, he at least had some game-awareness.
Then the nightmare began. It was obvious that our Drow (who had now already picked) was going to safe-lane/farm top, like a carry. I see someone calling "me farm top", but it is not Drow. Some guy decided to go Bristle (which is not bad at all, by itself) and wanted to safelane farm, after Drow had stood there a good 20 seconds.
My first thought was: "Oh lord, this is gonna go fucking terrible". And ofcourse, the flaming commenced. Drow did not really say anything, another indication of him being the better player of the two. Then instead of going bottom offensive trilane or something with the other two players (which were Bristleback's buddies), he demanded top. Our fourth player picks a hero, and as you might have guessed, it was not a support. This genius thinks it will help us if we have a PA. His buddy decided to pick BH (which would then make a good offlane, but ofcourse, he buys boots+tangoes and proceeds to go 0-5 versus a solo Windrunner that did not buy a single sentry.
To make matters worse (or better, because you really want to join a new game) Drow finally said: "really bb, let me farm in peace, please". But ofcourse, true to his nature as a person on the dark, cold and Slavic side of Europe he would not act like a civil human being for once.
After bodyblocking Drow several times so that the enemy Clockwerk could catch up and Battery her to death, and stealing some regeneration from the courier, Drow had enough. She started feeding semi-intentionally (the game was long over at this point, score was 17-5) and ofcourse, the 3 buttbuddies told us they would report me and Drow because she was "feeding" and I was defending her.
This shit is really enervating, and I finally understand why video games could potentially make someone violent. If this was in an internetcafe or some shit, I would have definitely gotten into a fistfight with the son of a bitch.
Of course I tried reporting BB, and so did Drow, but of course this is not gonna do anything. I have made it my personal quest to wreck these sons of bitches if I meet them again in a game. I will remember their names and encourage people to report them, or repeatedly kill them until they rage.
To my relief, after this gruesomely aggravating game, the enemy 5-man-stack said "wp lina, bb reported ×5, have a nice day"
Bristle started to cuss and rage. It made my day. Turns out there still are some people here who would actually like this community to improve.
