To be honest, I cannot pretend to always be a fun person to play with. I hold myself and my team to a very high standard of play, and more often than not this will result in me making hurtful comments towards my team member(s). I do not go on long, expletive filled rants, I rarely curse during these, and I try not to fail to include in some way what the issue is (as opposed to just ''U SUCK YOU N00B'', the gold standard in inter-team rage). I try to make it entertaining, for myself as well as others. I do not want to hurt my teamate, but I do wish for them to be suitably ashamed of ruining the game for other people. If someone apologizes, I will always leave them alone.
For example, I was losing a game because my teamates refused to group on me, currently a fed AP mid. At some point, I shouted at them ''Please just orbit me like a bunch of ****ty moons''. This was pre-tribunal, fortunately, as at this point something so light as mocking someone's cowardice by calling them a woman is punishable. As far as I am concerned, if gender slurs are punishable in a videogame, we have started down a very slippery slope.
I think I have problems checking my carry privilege, tbh. I should have realized how triggering I am being to feeders by asking them not to feed- they can't help it of course, they were born that way. He didn't /earn/ the right to tell them how to better play the game, just because I am not ruining the game for the rest of my team. But somehow, I can never get over my preposterous entitlement, and I cannot respect enough the difficulties of the 0-10-0 teemo who has been yelling in txt spk for several minutes in all chat about his n00b team making him feed.
