"what happened to sportsmanship?"- a reply to rude PSN message

Yesterday was a fairly good day.
Went to art class,
got an A+ on my DC superheroes painting,
went home,
ate lunch,
played with some puppies; You know an over all good day. I pop in ROTF for a little while and start playing in a death match. One player who was called nathan_rocks or something like that was playing very well. HOWEVER during the entire deathmatch I'm the only one who could kill him and I did it alot. Not enough to win the match but enough to really irritate him. Next match starts and he's getting frustrated. I had figured out his pattern of attack and was countering adequately (finally :D). I get close second that round. Next round everyone else in the match has left and its just me and him duking it out and hes mad. I stay calm and continue to whoop him good. I had him down to a science. His main character he was being was grindor, interesting thing about grindor is that he cant shoot you when your right in his face. so using Optimus I controlled the outcome of the match. During one our best rounds where I was winning something happened that required my immediate attention. I had to power down the playstation and help my family with the house. For 3 hours I was busy. When I get back he's sent me a message.

Here's what he told me
"don't run away and think you're better then me!"

Really kid really?

You're that insecure that you have to send stuff like that when you were losing?
Honestly I laughed at first because he used text speak and it had no grammar.
It actually said the wrong message.
He first said,
"dnt run away and thnk ur not better than me"
lol it didn't make sense but I knew what he wanted to say.

so I told him that the message wasn't cool and told him good game anyway.

But really?
What happened to sportsmanship?
The ROTF community is better than that right?
idk

I was happy that i was improving in my game.
I wasn't bashing him in my mind.
And how dare a someone assume that I would play till I get ahead and just quit.
idk I'm just upset that someone who was a good player threw away the potential to be a great player by his unsportsmanlike conduct (wow thats a flag on the field LOL :lol: ). Any way yeah that was stupid.
Now I'm left ranting like a mad cow
How many of these types of players are there?
How many jerks do we have to ignore before we actually meet a wholesome "hey, good game" type player?

LOL that's all he sent? Im sorry but try the call of duty community or that of any other mainstream shooter. I've been called every 4 letter word in the book and a ton of racial slurs have been sent my way. My advice, just block them and move on.

Video games have a tendency to change ones personality especially in the heat of battle. Sure I've gotten furious over someone who continually beats my ass in a certain game, I think all of us have at one point, it's human nature. In this day and age though alot of the younger crowd take it the next step and lash out with the first thought that pops in their head. I blame the caffiene the parents load them up with or the fact that parents allow there childeren to vent their anger in a video game. Hell it could have been a full grown adult too ya never know :P '

I like to refer to this link when I need a break from video games :P

People are going to freak out. Fact of life.

I had a little kid freak out at me on WFC during an Escalation match for "kill stealing" a cloaker he hadn't touched yet. His reaction was probably in the top 5.

I just dont like people putting words in my mouth.
Any way yesterday i met him again and pwned him.
Then he stepped out for a bit but left himself in the match so i kept him safe from greedy players looking for a cheep kill.
This went on for 2 matches and I let him know what I'd been doing and he changed his attitude. He left with a thankyou.
Idk why but I think he gave up trying to beat me and settled for a less the hostile arrangement that I'd offered.

It wasn't the fact that it was the worst thing I'd ever heard
just insecure. In a movie game with a terrible story mode, mediocre graphics and based on a less than OK movie. The community is pretty small in comparison to the other games mentioned.

I've been given way worse,
but if you want to be a great player you dont send messages like that in any intensity.
you dont gain respect just disdain
idk
which type of gamer gets the most respect?

This.

It's like that time on Snooker when Ronnie O'Sullivan played one-handed. Unsportsmanlike? Yes. Awesome? Definately.
