Advice on not being toxic

How do you deal with people doing things wrong? It tends to frustrate me a lot, but what really pushes me over the edge is when people defend their wrong actions and imply I am wrong which then I lose it. I'm really ashamed of being such a bad person when it comes to this. Does anyone have any advice to be a better teammate/not be toxic?

Topics are hidden when running Sport mode.
no answer for that you are just weak minded
2019-10-11 11:29
I don't believe that is true, I've seen many people change and stop being toxic. I just want to know how people have done that in the past so I can apply it to my own life.
2019-10-11 11:30
I was very toxic person too but i started to realize i wont get better by being toxic and after i realized i can do better if i stay calm i stopped to be toxic. Another thing is to not take it too seriously some people cant take pressure so learn to breath slowly and every time you wanna get toxic count to ten. If you have toxic team mates that can trigger more people to be toxic instant mute if you notice that. listen some chill music while playing.
2019-10-11 11:38
Ok, I will try your advice. The counting to ten shit might actually work, it sounds like a good idea.
2019-10-11 11:40
worked for me most important thing is to always remember being toxic wont make anything better. Will take some time to actually fully understand what that means but when it hits you you will question yourself why the fuck i even was toxic in the first place.
2019-10-11 11:44
Yea. Venting for the sake of venting ultimately works against what you want but sometimes I get caught up in the moment and just stop caring.

Never say sorry for being toxic, if he somehow wins the clutch but he played like a retard call him one and then if he flames you fucking voice_enable 0 and still talk in vc to flame them
2019-10-11 11:31
I mean I've flamed a lot and it's never helped me at all.

2019-10-11 12:49
solo q 200+ elo every day its ez
2019-10-11 13:20
mostly when u think ppl do the wrong shit, ur the one doing the wrong shit ^^
2019-10-11 11:31
I mean it's wrong of me to get mad for sure but I only get mad when it's justified. Unfortunately the justification makes me feel like my anger is justified (which it is not)
2019-10-11 11:32
This is just false. I see stupid shit all the time, the question is just wether you should use the energy to get upset by people doing shit wrong at low ranks in MM. No one is a pro, so why would they play it 100% proper.
2019-10-11 11:34
Care less, it's only a damn game. Made for kids to rob them all the way they can. Play for win, it's understood but prioritize your well being and mindset over that cheap, meaningless match victory. I guess you're a man, or you want to be, so you should understand.
2019-10-11 11:32
I will try that. Perhaps assigning less meaning to things will make me more relaxed in general.
2019-10-11 11:33
I used to be quite toxic in game and flame people. This kinda sounds stupid, but every time I realise I'm about to say/write something toxic I just don't. I know it's like a meme that says "just don't do X or Y" but that's what worked for me.
2019-10-11 11:32
I can see how that works. I will try that.
2019-10-11 11:33
At first some things will slip through, but the more you try and control yourself the easier it is. Can't remember the last time I was mad in a game on GO, likely ~3 years ago or so.
2019-10-11 11:36
That's really good to hear. I desperately need that calm too.
2019-10-11 11:38
Yeah, sucks playing the game being mad. It really tilts your game and you play so much worse, not to say that your team mates plays worse because theres someone raging on the team. I just worked in a habit of saying "nice try" even though the try was the shittiest I've ever seen, chances are the player knows this himself and cheering him up is just better for morale. Good luck!
2019-10-11 11:43
Thank you!

Grow the fuck up, accept some responsibilities in ur life so when u play with these degenerates you can ignore them cuz you know they are worthless and meaningless
2019-10-11 11:39
I do have responsibilities but the problem is I care way too much about everything (am the kind of guy who is overly competitive and ruins everything)
2019-10-11 11:40
just be toxic, its online and nobody knows who you are.
2019-10-11 11:42
I play with IRL friends only though. Which makes it that much worse as I am a shitty friend as well.
2019-10-11 11:43
How old are you? I was toxic towards the friends when I was like 14 or younger
2019-10-11 11:57
Sure, no one knows who he is but by being toxic he is increasing his chances of losing the game. Why play if you're only there to lose from the start?
2019-10-11 11:44
lose game from start? i only flame bad players who dont deserve their rank and i can tell it within few rounds.
2019-10-11 12:06
I'm sure you do.
2019-10-11 12:06
You can be critical without being toxic. It just takes a whole lot more effort that's why people resort to being toxic instead. // thread
2019-10-11 11:59
I see.

well i advise u to follow this strategy: 1- when the game starts try to joke with team and be friendly. 2- if they made first mistake,tell them its ok and to focus more. 3- if they make the same mistake start blaming gently. 4- if they keep playing like bots,start your toxicity. 5- if they start being toxic to u,start griefing. griefing makes u much more comfortable if u are 100% sure u will lose the game,i mean why try hard if u know u gonna lose? it feels like u dont give a fuck if u lose or win. here what happened to me in faceit game: i joined the match and i said hi,4 russians were a stack i asked them to speak english they said: we are 4 stack we will speak russian. i said ok maybe they do better strats with their language and i just follow them or lurk. ok first round: rush b. second round:rush b. 3rd round:go smokes A(mirage) and they left CT and jungle without smokes. mmm i kept calm and tried to carry and i won them 3 rounds single handed. then i missed a normal AWP shot they started: ahahahaha dont pick AWP man. mmm well here we go. started my toxicity realizing that the game is lost. holding t spawn with c4 and waste their time. giving chat info. laughing in mic with noisy sounds. burning them with molly. i felt much more comfortable than just trying hard and lose.
2019-10-11 12:04
wrong mentality, you cant always match with good teammates you have to realize that, doesnt matter how high your elo is. You need to be ready to be matched with bad teammates, be nice to them nonetheless, even when you see there isnt much to do to win the game with that particular team just chill for the rest of the match and then move on, really. It never helps to rage against your teammates, never.
2019-10-11 12:08
Imo, it's just a thing you'll need to solve in your own head first. Think about it. Will being toxic help you perform? Probably not. Will it somehow magically change that teammate who makes you toxic? Most certainly not. Especially if it's one of those people who can just never admit they did something wrong. Will it help the rest of the team? Probably not. Chances are, they'll either be tilted as well, or be so out of it, and kinda give up. Also, if the person making you toxic is just bad.. well, they're already not having a good time. They may be defensive, because they are well aware they are shit and it's bugging them too. There's a good chance just being supportive might have better results. Also, you might want to consider some people are trying to make you go full tilt on purpose. Do you really want to be amusement material for some troll, rather than playing your own game and winning? I think not. Of course, if it's just become a habit at this point - to go full agent orange mode first, and think after - I suppose you might want to try the things already suggested. Mute the person if they're trying to piss you off on purpose. Count to 10. Try breathing exercises - 4 seconds in, 4 seconds out, and repeat. Take a short break after an especially gear-grinding match. Drink some tea, lol.

2019-10-11 12:51

Well, understand that the outcome of the match and your rank doesn't really matter. You're probably not seeking a career out of CSGO, and because you're not, your rank doesn't really matter. Also, you yourself seem frustrated that you're toxic, you play the game and after the game your mood is ruined. You're the one getting affected the most.So, start by playing a few matches with your voice disabled,that way even if you want to rage, you cant.
2019-10-11 13:03
Hoia suu kinni. Try to explain people their mistakes without cursing at them. If they don't listen, don't waste your energy.

Just grow up and be mature about it, focus on your own game. Everyone is learning
2019-10-11 13:24
Lmao i agree so much brother you should atleast admit when youre wrong.
2019-10-11 20:55
1- Stop critizing someone you are not a friend of irl 2- Always be supportive when you communicate For example don't say; "BLUEEEEE WHAT ARE YOU DOING YOU FUCKING IDIOT, YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO HELP ME THERE!! " Instead say; "Blue, if you'd help me in that situation we could easily kill all of them and win the round"
2019-10-11 21:01
rank up from silver. and your mates wont suck.
2019-10-11 21:47
Even when playing with my friends sometimes i get frustrated when they do something really low IQ that ends up throwing the round. Im not Toxic about it. I throw it in their faces as a way of showing them why they shouldnt do that so that Next time they make the right decision. Its not always being Toxic, its being critically constructive.
2019-10-12 01:18
Just don't be toxic. wtf.
2019-10-12 01:28
CS is a game that can easily get you tilted. It happens to the best of us. Being toxic to teammates is a way to vent your frustration. Just apologize afterwards. Honestly I tilt the most when I did something wrong. You know that one kill that you really should have had that then snowballs into a round loss because your teammates screw up too... Always look to improve your own game. Part of that is accepting the blame sometimes.
2019-10-12 01:33
I stopped caring about winning/losing. I just focus on fragging and hAvInG fUn That's how I beat toxicity
