I know no one likes to lose, but does anyone else ever think it gets to a point where its just gone beyond the game and into something more personal.
As an example, I live in a city that has a very small group of people who play at a competitive level, and because Ive complety dominated the scene to the point where its just straight out rape…im usually branded with the typical insults most scrubs hurl towards good players such as not having a life or having to much time on my hands. I mean how it is my fault that I just for whatever reason, happen to have a good handle of how the game works and play. I always hate how whenever anyone is good at anything the meditate conclusion by the loser is well this guy must have no social life" and well I dont spend 20+ hours a day training or I have real priorities because I actually have a life".
Every person I play against here who initially was nice just end up being a complete asshole because I kicked there ass…its almost like I should feel guilty for being good or something. Its not my fault I can react faster and think more ahead…but then again no one ever wants to be respectful and just acknowledge the better player and say “hey I lost to the better fighter” without some sort of additional commentary afterwards…it pisses the hell outta me cause im not a bad guy or anything so I dont know what is with all the hate. I admit i get a little cocky at times but i do it all in good fun and in a friendly sense. I guess basically my question is how do u handle the personal attacks and insults whenever u win over someone else.
