My favorite insulter routine is when after a tirade or two they charge around trying to solo cap whether that makes sense at the time or not. Which with their emotionally driven sense of priorities is a personal win/win.

When I see ops chat clogged by insulters the sage advice of a great philosopher of the 1980s come to mind. I pity da foos... then troll them softly until they rage quit.

I was kinda hoping this thread would be about the jerks who berate weak teams who never stood a chance in /say chat at the end of a match. Also pretty uncool.
A classic sig that should not be lost:

that's not true. it's the perception ppl want to have. however, there are plenty of good players - even ok ones - who put up great numbers or know what they're doing but constantly rag on teammates and opposing players. I don't know where the idea that the jerks are bads comes from (other than wish fulfillment), but it's not even close to a reliable rule.

elitist jerks and ppl who just think they're elitist jerks as well as the general babies who can't stand losing all do it.

From my experience the "elitists" usually have quit before the complaining even starts, or leave when they see the team they are on. Not saying the better players don't rag on their own team but I usually see the opposite which is bad players doing this.

QFT. Bad players do insult other players. But so do good or even sometimes great players. I know I've ragged once or twice when I solo qued any my team gave up with 40%+ of the match left. It just sticks in people's memory when someone who does worse than them on the scoreboard insults them and then they generalize it.

The key word was "usually", and it holds true on the 4 servers I've played on in this game. In past games often the biggest personal attackers were good performers, cocky elitist types who'd take it too far. In this one, it appears the general rule is that the most obnoxious *** hats are mediocre at best.

No, but others that are probably their long lost cousins.

Problem in this thread is experiences vary by server, and we don't preface everything by saying "on ____".

The servers I play/have played on, that rule I mentioned is true far more often than not. I'd prefer to play with jerks who actually perform well, at least our teams would get something out of it.
