Does toxicity affect your playstyle?
Australia IceIceIceIceIce 
A couple of months ago for some reason I challenged myself to solo queue to Global Elite as a now better player than when I first started my Global grind. For the most part I've gotten very nice teammates who communicate well and are good (maybe I just have high trust factor?) But today I got a toxic teammate and for some reason, I retaliated in being toxic. It was the first time in my 8 years of playing cs that I have done so because most of the time I would just mute and play my own game. But it was in hindsight a bad idea as I always thought I had something to prove and did some stupid mistakes that I wouldn't normally make. How about you guys? Do toxic teammates affect how you play the game and how do you deal with them?

No. I'm always toxic if I get noob team.

+1, no toxic teammates if you are the toxic one

there are toxic teammates but they are not even close to my toxicness

shatto is definitely closer to how Japanese people pronounce it, but yeah it works both ways on the keyboard.

no shit, i just said no one on hltv knows jap

I’m different since I grew up abroad, but most Japanese people (at least from what I’ve seen) don’t speak English fluently enough to be able to swear, since they don’t know how to use most insults or what a lot of them mean. That’s why the annoying ones shout “shatto appu” over and over again without doing anything else; telling them that what they’re doing wrong in an angry manner won’t really do anything because they either don’t understand or won’t hear...

When teammates are toxic I throw the game ... simple as that I join a game to have fun , NOT to solve the mental problems of anyone
2019-10-17 11:28
That's true, I join to have fun, but I've always just sucked it up. Toxic teammates were also becoming rarer for me

what do you gain from doing this?
2019-10-20 21:15
I have fun
2019-10-21 02:12
how is it fun to make people angry and lose on purpose. did you ever think "maybe these ppl only get so mad because i do this?"
2019-10-21 12:15
when i was a kid, on the playground, if you kicked the football the wrong way enough times, you would get beaten up.
2019-10-21 12:16
Ppl aren't supposed to rage while I'm playing, if they do I'll take advantage of it and have fun Winning or losing doesn't matter, it's just a game
2019-10-21 12:27
imo that attitude is 20x worse at least than someone who gets mad at you because youre not trying to win.
2019-10-21 12:28
you are the problem
2019-10-21 12:28
no, they are. l'm playing, l'm doing my best and then suddenly "WOW LOOK THIS GUY PLAYING, SO BAD. THIS IS WHY WE'RE LOSING!" who said l'm not trying to win? Wtf. l only start throwing when the toxic guy appears
2019-10-21 12:31
the toxic guy will say he only became toxic because you were already throwing
2019-10-21 12:32
ehh no. ppl are toxic for no reason 90% of time
2019-10-21 12:33
from your perspective. from their perspective you are throwing for no reason 90% of the time.
2019-10-21 12:34
just because i play bad doesnt mean im throwing
2019-10-21 12:35
whats the difference
2019-10-21 15:40
im not trolling therefore theres no reason to get mad at me
2019-10-21 15:41
well they cant get mad at you for throwing if youre not throwing yet. but they can be mad if you play bad. and then you start throwing. and they see you play even worse and get more mad. i dont see how this helps you. better to just mute them and try to play. 99.999% of ppl suck at this game. me too. and all those guys who get mad at you too. so why take them seriously and let it influence you?
2019-10-21 15:46
because it makes the game funnier
2019-10-21 15:50
+1, if people are toxic i just troll and have fun doing stupid things
2019-10-17 11:40
"I join a game to have fun" - So u have fun by throwing the game? Nice logic... Maybe just mute the toxic person and go on and play and have fun? Thats not a solution?
2019-10-17 12:01
If teamm8s are toxic the fun of the game is already gone ... Why I have to play for win if someone behave like monkey?? Ofc if it’s only one you mute him ... but usually are more
2019-10-17 12:06
If there's usually more than one I'd say its more of a YOU problem not them.
2019-10-20 08:51
You are wrong
2019-10-20 09:21
i tihnk the fact you play COMPETITIVE for FUN is a big nono, maybe COMPETITIVE is for people which WANT to WIN, not have FUN ???? :thinking:
2019-10-21 06:49
Look dude , i understand your way you think and its correct ... BUT personally i play only Esea and i am rank A+ , so pretty much everyone know have to play ... obviously i join for the win ,who joins a game to loose 1 hour of his life to loose?? IF one is super toxic , the other just buys every round cause he thinks its Superman , the other play for frags , I THROW ... If its just 1 retarded i play and i mute him ... I hope now you understand my point now
2019-10-21 07:37
ah bro, if you play for fun and dont end up like with OMEGA negative KD's then it's ok, keep playing for fun. I was talking about people which play comp for fun and end up bottom of the scoreboard and they give the "its only a game bro" excuse. I do the same when i see team is really trash or well i don't tryhard as much at least and do stupid buys but thats when i q mm with my trashy friend
2019-10-21 08:55
Portugal xxxRUI75xxx 
I do see ur point and can relate. If it´s just one guy I mute him and ignore him. If it´s more than one (very rare thing to happen) I just begin to play for myself instead of trying to play as a team.... but if it crosses certain boundaries (like personal insults or something like that) it´s difficult for me to ignore. When that happens I tend to retaliate (by responding or shooting the guy if tk is enabled) or just leave the game - at this point, if you have this kind of teammates, the game is already lost anyway. Fortunately, it´s something that maybe happened to me only once or twice, because I am at a point where I mostly play with people from my friends list (and I am very careful, in terms of toxicity, with who I accept or not in my friends list).

add nice players after your match eventually you will have a base of nice players and there should always be a full queue of people who communicate well and stay positive

2019-10-17 11:31
all good, I always play at least a 3 man stack on faceit or the rare occasions I play MM just because its so much more fun playing with friends, and even when losing instead of tilt we start talking about random shit, taking mind off the game which is way better than tilting imo
2019-10-17 11:32
I soloqueued to global with voice_enable 0. Its actually quite nice to play like that, with no care in the world.
2019-10-21 02:27
true, but most of my games have nice ppl who actually comm (surprisingly)
2019-10-21 12:04

i have had trouble in the past with toxicity but you will grow past it, honestly. the key is the create a positive vibe and bring it over towards them. i had a game of wingman the otherday, where a 12-13 y/o kid was obviously trying to tilt me from the start of the game. first round he killed me and blamed me when he couldnt 1v2. i didnt say anything, next round he died early and i won 1v2 afterplant, yet he called me a noob and a retard with really bad game sense, i laughed it off and called him quite the 'joker' from that moment, everything he did right i would compliment him right away, and eventually he started doing the same. after the game ended and i carried him and in fact did not tilt one bit, he thanked me for the game and apologized for his toxic behaviour.
2019-10-17 11:32
Yeah man I really respect you for your attitude in that game, most ppl would've definitely done something different I usually just mute anyone toxic in the past and just play my own game, but for some reason today I retaliated. Maybe I was a bit cocky because I was basically smurfing (this was LEM level) but this was definitely the first time I remember truly remember being toxic to someone, even if it was in retaliation.
2019-10-17 11:34
Netherlands Bodhisb 
there are days i am having a hard time with toxic people aswell, i think everyone does. but dont let it get to your head, if they are obviously being annoying just laugh with them and 9/10 they will respect that and leave it there. lets say you react annoyed(which is what they want) they will ruin it for you even more. lets say people are just straight up rude to you, be straight with them, dont act 'mad' or 'dominant' just be straight with them. otherwise just mute them, move on with the rest of your team, make the best out of it. after 3500 hours of cs, i have learned to just let things slip or take it, in the end im putting all this time in for me, because i enjoy it. im not gonna let some no namer kid ruin my leisure
2019-10-17 11:41
good advice, thank :))

anytime brother
2019-10-17 11:46
if you start to feel mad at your teammates, and you are playing a bad game where ppl dont give info and do dumb stuff, just voice_enable 0. you cant yell at them and they can yell at you but you cant hear it. all the yelling only distracts you and you cant hear footsteps.
2019-10-17 11:32
I usually don't voice_enable 0 because there's like a max of 2 toxic players in almost all games I've played, I just mute those and communicate with the ones that aren't 18yo virgin retards
2019-10-17 11:35
when i do that i still end up talking to guys i muted when they do stupid shit, distracting me from my own game
2019-10-17 11:37
that's fair enough
2019-10-17 11:39
Voice_enable 0 instantly if shit hits the fan too soon, and then i pretty much play DM at that point, zero fucks. Even if just one guy, it ruins it too soon and i'm not up for it.
2019-10-17 11:36
do you think a lot of your games are like this?
2019-10-17 11:40
Where i live is normally "good communication" or no communication. Or a toxic dude sometime later. I still mute people completely on my games if the comms are not useful
2019-10-17 11:45
what servers do you usually play on then? and yeah that's what I usually do, mute if no one is comming or ppl are being retards but for some reason I retaliated today lmao
2019-10-17 11:48
I do retaliate as sarcasm via text chat sometimes, but then i mute and keep playing normally. Nothing much though, like i said, i'm not up for this shit. For me was worse when i tried playing dota once and didn't knew how mm on that game works (if you are new, you can get much better players on your team, and that game toxic people are another level.
2019-10-17 11:52
ok cool, ty for sharing ur perspective men
2019-10-17 11:54
Yes, 4-man stack in Faceit said "Stop dieing" when i had 6 deaths in 6 rounds while i was the B Anchor on Mirage. I always got kills, so when they said "stop dieing" i just got toxic myself, held B from kitchen(so not really holding it) because short pushed trough all the time too. At the end of the game i had 16 deaths, they all had 18-22. Obviously i started baiting all the time since they said that.
2019-10-17 11:42
Hahaha I actually relate to this so much because this did happen to me a lot of the time as the B anchor, I always get 1-2 kills before being traded, teammates said "play for retake" when I was stuck in the site fighting 3 angles while they were getting set up for retake, when I died they blamed me for losing the round
2019-10-17 11:45
When i started "holding" from kitchen, they said they gonna report me, so it doesn't matter what you're doing, you're the one to get blamed for losing the round all the time if you play with a 4-man stack.
2019-10-17 12:12
True, once or twice I played with a 4 man in MM but from what I remember they were still ok ppl, weren't toxic and dropped guns even tho they didnt comm at all
2019-10-17 12:14

If i get just a bit toxic (not completely like when i get 4 trolls in my team) i actually get much better since i care more for the game.

Europe Hosta_Mahogey 
Yes it does. I should voice_enable 0 more, but I find playing without hearing others extremely boring, so I tend to keep voice on and get tilted/angry at them. - Hosta Mahogey
2019-10-17 11:42
That's actually true, its boring without comms, so I mute the toxic guy. Unfortunately that means most other ppl aren't communicating either and its a bad game in general
2019-10-17 11:46
Yeah I play like shit when I have a toxic teammate. I wish it wasn't the case and I could be more consistent.
2019-10-17 11:50
Yea, because if someone is toxic the entire team usually doesn't communicate, resulting in a bad game for everyone on the team. Also since I play a lot of positions that require comms (anchoring) I play worse in general. If everyone is communicating nicely I feel way more comfortable and have a lot more fun even if they don't frag well
2019-10-17 11:51
Exactly. I play anchor a lot too, and I suspect that the more supportive roles like that are especially affected by poor communication.
2019-10-17 12:04
+1 especially when I entry/lurk (depending on my mood and setups) on T side as well, requiring a lot of comms to succeed

When you play solo q you have a high probability of getting toxic teammates or players that dont have the same motivations to play the game as you. My recomendation would be for example trying to find a hub in faceit with people from your country. When you need people to play just go there and ask for teammates. After some games you will begin too see who's the people who deserve to play with you. That way you can choose people by their mentality and playstyle... not random players.
2019-10-17 11:56
yes I know, in faceit games I always play with a minimum of 2 other people. But this was when I challenged myself to solo queue to Global
2019-10-17 11:57
Portugal syk0 
yeah when solo q you need to expect those kind of players.. Dont expect communication or people listening to your call or tacts cause most of the time they are just casual players.
2019-10-17 12:10
haha yeah thats the mentality I need if I'm to finish this for sure
2019-10-17 12:13
I once found myself playing with a 3-man stack in faceit, and the retards were trolling me all the way, dropping me cheap weapons etc. Result: 32 kills, ez carry, noobz mald 😎👍👍
2019-10-17 11:59
very nice men 😎😎😎👍👍👍
2019-10-17 11:59
I think i'm the most toxic player ever. But i'm not toxic to the teammates, but for the game and luck.
2019-10-17 11:59
this is actually me as well, if i get toxic its usually toward me being an idiot or some stupid rng like timings. if i get toxic at teammates I never direct it to them over vc, just mutter to myself or some shit
2019-10-17 12:01
Me too. I'm toxic directly for the game, and for enemies if there are shitting on my face. Example, tapping AK from the side at opponent's head, 10 bullets in head, -27 in 1, he turns, instant HS, or similar situations. I'm getting crazy about those shits. And this game is full of it.
2019-10-17 12:10
Or that moment when you watch an angle for an entire minute, then the millisecond you pull out a smoke or stop watching it you get instantly headshotted, nothing tilts me more than that
2019-10-17 12:12
It happens every match few times... Crap
2019-10-17 12:27
yes toxic team = worse individual level from me
2019-10-17 12:01
wanna play mm or faceit some time? im LE/faceit lvl 6 but have smurfs on both
2019-10-17 12:02
I'm only playing MM atm for a solo queue to global challenge to keep myself motivated in grinding faceit, and when I play Faceit it's usually with a 5 man (or sometimes 3) so yeah :/

honestly sounds like ps4 in a nutshell lmao
2019-10-17 12:09
Toxic people are annoying, but I can deal with them (mute them) usually. However, if I die because some idiot screams into his microphone which distracts me then I just can't handle it anymore and scream full volume into the mic. Usually they shut up by then, and I just mute them aswell.
2019-10-17 12:15
fair enough, I haven't met someone that was extremely toxic in my matches for quite a while tho, maybe once every 4 or 5 months surprisingly
2019-10-17 12:16
Yeah, it's been getting better here aswell, maybe because I've barely played this year :x I might start again though.

Most toxic teammates that I encounter, are toxic because they are newer to the game, ignorant about the game, inexperienced, and have the brain of a prepubescent teenager whose voice probably hasnt broken yet. If they were around since CS1.3 days like me, they wouldn't exhibit that toxic attitude and all would be well. instead, they are loud, bossy, disrespectful, intolerant, care more about identifying and shitting on their teammates playstyles and errors than their own errors which are usually 100x worse, and yeah they can go F* themselves for all i care. yeah ?
2019-10-17 12:37
For sure, but I think there is a variety when it comes to toxics; some are prepubescent like you said but others have also played for a long time and still toxic as fuck The guy I just played with made fun of me for being only LE (in my solo queue to global journey), even though he was SEM with some of the shittiest mechanics I've ever seen (legit seen Novas with better fundamentals) and I had triple his kills. I just disconnected lol

I remember playing with a few friends who were global back in the day. Spin botters against us every game. Think I was gold nova 1 at the time. Some guys were inviso speed bots and would just back stab in the back with a knife but still out fragged my friends.
2019-10-17 12:44
inviso speed bots? is it even possible to go invisible in this game lol
2019-10-17 12:52
IT used to be in CS go. Maybe it was just a speed hack so I thought they were inviso. I played with a group and one of our friends was not even that good got banned after 8 months for walling. He denied it of course but yeah.

2019-10-17 12:56
Toxicity severly affects my game IF i know the person being toxic. If it's a random I either don't care or reply with an appropriate response. If one of the people I qued with starts being toxic or tilts I don't play with them again, as it in some instances makes me play poorly. I'm never toxic, I never tilt, and I find it moronic to think tilting or being toxic suddenly will make you win. It's a child's reaction and I have no time for children
2019-10-17 13:08
True, I'm never toxic toward my team (sometimes I cant help it but I dont communicate it over voice) because it won't help anyone, we've all been there where we've had a bad day and played like shit. And all my irl/online friends arent toxic so it was never a problem for me I never tilt from a toxic player (just get frustrated sometimes but I still try to focus on my own game) and just play for fun if nothing works
2019-10-17 13:28
Toxicity makes me play worse, but if you really get on my nerves and i get absolutely fucking mad i go s1mple mode and destroy everyone. Rarely happens though

I once got into a game, carried the team like any global elite hltv user would, and last round right before we win they kick me. Disgusting behaviour. I reported all of them. They were pretty nice too in game, but I suppose they were all friends queued as 4 or something. Surprisingly, I was very cool about it and raged for about 30 seconds

Only if you let the tilt get to you
2019-10-20 08:50
pretty sure toxicity is already half a tilt.
2019-10-20 10:50
I immediately start playing like shit if I have a toxic teammate. I'm really weak with that kind of stuff, playing without premades is pretty much a complete no go for me, other than ECL maybe, but even ECL can be harsh sometimes.
2019-10-20 08:53
Yeah mentality is a massive part of playing good cs I completely get you. Aside from that one game a couple of days before I havent got another toxic in my games which is good to see
2019-10-21 06:36
toxicity doesnt lose games, bad players do
2019-10-20 09:00
saying it doesn't lose games is just stupid. cuz with ur toxicity u will infect ur whole team mates some can handle it and keep playing their best game but some will just crumble and start playing worse and worse. i played with toxic russians all my life from 1.6 and just see navi their attitude is the main reason they are not winning big stuff.

yes uk very toxic.
2019-10-20 10:51
no bro all mute and play
2019-10-20 10:56
yes I become fucking awful most of the times anyway I would like to lose the game with really good teammates then win with the toxic ones
2019-10-20 10:56
Same, but then again I don’t really get tilted at toxics in general except that one game Playing with a team who comms well and are great ppl is always the best feeling in cs imo
2019-10-21 06:37
Never solo queue. Always toxic team or people who cant speak english.
2019-10-20 11:01
I play in au so not really much of a problem since everyone speaks English, and I never solo queue except for this challenge I did to motivate myself Tovar’s keep grinding faceit

i remember there was a toxic guy carrying us and we were losing so he spoke alot of shit, we kicked him and we made a big come backl
2019-10-20 11:06
i just go full tilt +w
2019-10-20 11:06
Yes it gets in the way, I can't pay attention to the game, but being toxic is necessary sometimes when the team is troll or crap. For them to wake up you know!
2019-10-20 16:34
My mentality is that we’ve all had days when we weren’t hitting a single shot, so I’m never toxic to ppl in my team who are underperforming because they know they’re playing bad. For trolls it’s a different story but there hasn’t been a troll on my team for ages, even in mm surprisingly
2019-10-21 06:40
Dude I fall with troll very often, I confess that I get very frustrated and angry at these people who tool with their game. You get out of a stressful job, earn a mediocre salary, do your best, then when you get into the game to calm down, there's a guy trolling the whole match. I get angry, but I do not wish death, not cuss, or absolutely none of it ... I speak as passively as possible, if the guy goes on there I say shouting, I ask to expel, because it sucks these people ...
2019-10-21 19:44
I ain't toxic, so if they're toxic, I don't insult them, if they're TOO MUCH toxic, I mute them and try to play KDR if it's a loss game 100%
2019-10-20 16:40
Yeah that’s a great mentality to have
2019-10-21 06:40
Only disgustingly bad players affect my performance because i'm getting tilted by watching these hopeless 18 avg bots playing their own game instead of trying to win with the actual smart decisions.
2019-10-20 17:51
Hahahah yeah we’ve all been there before but tbh there’s not really much we can do about them
2019-10-21 06:41
It's really frustrating when you see that people still cant do proper smokes on such mainstream maps like Mirage, D2, Inferno and Cache. I have seen people missing easiest smokes to ct, stairs or jungle on Mirage, ct smoke on D2 and ct smoke on Inferno(i dont even mention that some people cant properly smoke short or long, they come closer and try to smoke it from open spots and get caught from an AWPer or an aggressive rifler), and they somehow manage to miss smoke to connector on Cache or crossing smoke on A site.
2019-10-21 13:03
it is indeed super frustrating when my teammate calls out "smoking CT" and you get rekt by an AWP thru the gap of the smoke, tilts me quite a lot
2019-10-21 13:27
When players trash talk me, I end up thinking twice about taking duels, playing with less confidence, and missing easy shots. Fortunately I top frag almost every game now, so people no bully me uwu
2019-10-21 02:17
It usually doesn’t affect me but it does affect comms and since I play a lot of supportive roles which require good comms to prosper my performance does suffer sometimes

im toxic when i get chinese bots on my team
2019-10-21 02:23
LMAO come to think of it I have gotten a few chinese ppl in my team for this solo queue spree I’m doing
2019-10-21 06:43
voice_enable 0 if i play stupid, if not i just dont retaliate
2019-10-21 03:17
Usually what I do too
2019-10-21 06:44
toxicity doesnt lose games, bad players do
2019-10-21 03:22
Sometimes yes but it does affect team comms and morale, and the game isn’t fun when there’s a toxic
2019-10-21 06:44
i play on high sensitivity so if some1 is toxic and yells i might miss my awp shots
2019-10-21 08:40
bruh moment right here

I use a bind, voice_scale 0 to 0.15
2019-10-21 12:08
Not playing anymore, but whenever I got toxic, I'd get conscious of it and try to quickly adjust my play style to become more passive or safe, if that makes any sense. Because otherwise I keep making unsuccessful entries and that ruins my mood even further
2019-10-21 12:33
When i'm toxic i get angry and i just pick and rush

Not much tbh. It used to but now it’s more like disappointment when I get bad teammates. I don’t have anything against Russians in general, I’ve met some really nice people but some of them are so short-tempered.. You hit them once by accident and they’ kill you next round, you question one play they make and they shout at you, and leave the game as soon as the round difference goes above like 7. Like if you joined, why not try until the end anyway?
