Like lots of you I love playing Halo...but for some reason I get super mad when i play matchmaking by my self. and its not like I'm mad at my self or at the other people in the game, I just get angry. Now I'm not the best Halo player, hell I'll say it, I suck..so that might be the cause. or maybe its just playing with people I don't know. I don't wear a head set much because I think I will start just yelling at people. and its not like a lasting rage, hell I'm laughing about it now. Halo is the only game this happens in, Not in Call of Duty, Left4Dead, or any other game. So my question to all of you is....what game makes you mad and why, is it campers (yes i know its a legitimate strategy)in MW3, do wow BG's get under your skin? or people AFK'ers in well any game?
Dude i rage all the time :D No shame at all! Halo is one of those games where you can die and never know what or who killed you, but when your the one dishing out the kills your pretty smug, how i try and justify my rage sprees
I don't really rage in Halo because a lot of the time I know I'm getting outskilled since I don't play it that often. I rage all the time in CoD and BF. Getting killed (I assume accidentally) by people that have stats worse than an 8 year old I know annoys the ever loving crap out of me.
I am usually calm playing halo but the thing that sets me off is team killing. You all have played a game with that guy who gets mad about not getting the sniper so he betrays you for it or that guy who didn't get the tank so he camps in the mortar of it. Yeah, that guy just sets me off.
It took me a long time to get me to try Halo multiplayer. I steer clear of competitive multiplayer because I get pissed off when I suck at a game.
So when I finally decided to try multiplayer in Reach, I made sure I had the mindset of "I'm going to die a lot, so don't get pissed off." Now I enjoy playing and don't freak out if I die. But every once and a while, I'll have a moment of "I SHOT HIM IN THE FUCKING FACE. HE SHOULD BE DEAD." (mainly in Swat or Living Dead where one headshot is an instant kill).
I play pretty calm in Halo I think the only time I ever really rage is when I know the person is supposed to be dead. That or when I am called a "little faggot boy" for having a *gasp* voice that sounds like a girl... who would have thunk? (>_>)
