Online games' problem

We play video games on the PC, through an electronic screen. Though we interact with real people, there is no telling if the people on the other screen are actually mature or serious about the game. Everyone is free with their actions and words. As there is no consequence for anything online, sometimes people are reckless with their words. This is where tilt can most likely happen, especially in a game like Dota 2.

How do we know if the other player is serious or just fooling around

Dota 2 is one of the most popular titles out among video games. The game is competitive with a 5v5 gameplay where you interact with the other 9 people. The game heavily relies on teamwork and cooperation. As an individual, we have to work toward the common objective of destroying the opponent’s buildings.

However, working with 4 strangers is not easy at all. Especially when each one has its own ego. In Dota 2, mistakes are inevitable. There is no telling if one player can get emotional at any point in the game. Rage or tilting can happen any time, and it is nothing new in Dota 2. One miscommunication or mistiming can lead to a quarrel between teammates. One misplayed situation can break the team spirit which is already fragile.

Any tips?

There are many things that you need to keep in mind when playing the game.

First of all, it is just a game, nothing less. Dota 2 is a competitive game yet it is only a game, nothing matters in real life. You need to set your mind before going into the game to keep calm, especially when playing with your friend. Win or lose, it is just a game with nothing gained or lost in real life. Win? It is your enjoyment. Lose? The opponent had a better day than yours.

Remember, we are all humans and play the game for enjoyment, not a mindless machine

Second, mistakes are inevitable. We are all human and not perfect at all. When you are playing with the other 4 players, they are all real people playing behind the screen. They can have brilliant moments or make some bad decisions. Everyone makes mistakes at times, no one can be perfect. You need to tolerate people's mistakes and go on with the game.

Lastly, flamers are bad, just ignore them. There are some ridiculous players in Dota 2 who are just waiting to annoy people. They are not enjoying the game like other players. If that is their point, just ignore them by muting their voice and chat. The world is full of weird people and not everyone is alright with mentality. You should just stay away from them, don't feed the troll.
