If someone insulted you - mute them. It’s that simple.
It’s not a reason to ruin the day for 3 other people. You deserve every bit of insult that you got - and more - if you do that.
You’re a pathetic excuse for a human being if you do.
99% of time insults come into play when people already are throwing the game through their actions and they do not respond to pings and warnings.
THEN they get insulted. And for a good reason, and I still think that it’s proper.
If a person can’t learn not to take an enemy camp before objective while 5 people are clearly moving towards him on the map, and ignores warning pings - then let him be insulted.
If carrot doesn’t work - a whip will. It’s that simple.
Yeah they will not change in a minute. But after being repeatedly insulted and bashed in 50 games - they WILL make a connection.
If reporting for intentionally dying is disfunctional - then insults is the only way that you can make people learn.
If Blizzard doesn’t want to punish stupid - other players will.
And I don’t care about people’s “feewings”.
Feelings is a right that needs to be deserved. You aren’t entitled to be a pissy princess just because “it’s a game”.
In some cases - I can’t help but agree.
But also - it will at least serve as a slap in the face to the idiots.
They get kicked 10 times - they will stop acting like clowns and start wanting to improve.
Sadly, Blizzard executives think it’s probably too toxic. Because, ah, yes, bad players have feewings too.
