(Just another story of my time playing, maybe meant to entertain or have people go ‘hey, that happened to me’, but not flaming or anything else.)
So I was playing earlier today on PS4. I was fighting pub players, one among them (let’s call him Tyrantslayer) who you will become intimately familiar with.
I was Behemoth, trying out my new bought-on-a-whim jade skin, and honestly got destroyed. Not a strike on them. After the game, I congratulated the team and said gg, and Tyrantslayer replied in kind. The match after, I was part of the pub as Crow, and he went with Goliath.
He only got one strike, on Hank, and the match ended with the clock running and him at Stage 2. I entered the post-game lobby, congratulated him, and my word did he have some things to say.
He unleashed a massive slew of profanity, calling us cuties and fire hydrants. Saying that we should suck his dinosaur. He would not stop telling us to go fluff ourselves. I asked him why he was being so toxic, and he immediately assumed I was part of a team with the other players and viciously asked for a rematch. Despite that being the entire point of Skirmish.
I chose Behemoth again as I was selected Monster, and I won at Stage 3. Post-game he was sarcastically mocking me for wishing him a good game, giving me acidic lip about how if he hadn’t glitched out he would have walked all over me, and so on and so forth. My next game (as Goliath) I disconnected due to internet troubles, and didn’t honestly have the heart to play further today.
Tyrantslayer, that isn’t your name, but both you and I know who you are. Why are you playing this game if you’re not having fun? Please, for all that is shiny and warm, put the controller down and stare soulfully at the horizon for a few hours.
Thanks all for reading.
tl;dr Super toxic guy, could not figure out why. He messed up my heart and from the lobby I did depart.
