It’s easy to forget that you’re playing with real people sometimes. If you’re mad or frustrated at your teammates, nobody can stop you from expressing that. But there’s a big difference between insulting someone’s in-game abilities and insulting them as a human being.
We think it’s a better idea to stick with the first one.
You wouldn’t walk up to a complete stranger on the street and tell them to kill themselves, would you? This isn’t about “hurt feelings,” “being a pussy,” or “being a SJW.” It’s about common decency.
You don’t have to be a ray of sunshine when you’re playing a multiplayer game. You don’t have to coddle people, or tell them they’re amazing when they really just suck ass. All you have to do is take care of your teammates.
