    When they are spouting bullshit, I grab a bag of popcorn. When they get dangerously toxic, to the point that they throw games, I... Still eat from my bag of popcorn. Even if they TK me, I don't really care. I used to get really pissed about shit like TKing, but I'm at the point where I'm playing mostly to have fun. Although I will sometimes lose it when a game's mechanics are just being annoying.
    I'm damaged, and I like it!

      Ability to get along with their teammates, that's a skill. I try to basically look for a team on the Internet, rather than playing with people I don't know.

        I generally don't give a shit if they're toxic, if they have the skill to back it up. I'd much rather play with skilled assholes than low carebears. If however they are both low and toxic I mute and maybe report if they throw.
        I'm gonna admit it, sometimes I am the toxic teammate. If I'm on a big losing streak that is not necessarily my fault I can start flaming hard. But at those times I just stop playing and go for a change of pace. A walk outside, a movie or some sports.

            I can tell you from my own experience of dealing with toxic players as well as being toxic towards my own teammates; it rarely has to do what is actually happening in game. 99% of the time the person has something else going on IRL that's almost got them tilted, and one little thing in-game sets them off. I took a long, LONG break from playing video games competitively or at all. These days if I do play something online (mostly Tekken 7) and I get taunted or experience toxic behavior or whatever, I just let it roll off my back. If I can't let it roll off my back, then I know its time to stop playing and go do something else.

              Good advice and welcome to the forums! Hey everyone, look a new person that isn't a spambot! We're having a tough time dealing with spam around here as you may have noticed. Anyway, welcome!

            This is how I deal with neckbeard asshole basement dwellers. I just turn chat off. I don't use voice cause most of it is just stupid garbage. I have never heard anyone say anything useful over voice chat. Everyone knows what their roles are in the game and they should be doing their jobs. If they are doing their jobs then you will win. If not then you will lose.

            I played MW1, MW2 and even some Black Ops multiplayer and never had any problems. Never had any issues with BF3 and 4.But then again I usually keep voice chat off. No one bothered to type anything either.

            The only multiplayer game where I experience any "toxic" behavior was in World of Tanks. There is no voice chat in the game. But there is text chat and other ways to communicate with your team. Which is really just 14 other random people. When I started playing back in 2013 there was no way to turn the text chat off. It was like that for a few years. But enough people complained and they gave players the option to turn the chat off. I quickly turned mine off. Then after that the only way the asshole neckbeard loser types could get at you was through messages after a match. So people complained and Wargaming gave us the option to disable the messages. Which I did. So now all the assholes are left raging and fuming at no one. The text chat is useless cause no one ever says anything valuable anyway. So it's no loss.

            But that should give you an idea of just how toxic World of Tanks is. We could even text chat with the opposing team and they even took that away. World of Tanks is one of those free2play garbage games that's rigged like a casino in Vegas. So it kind of breeds the toxic behavior.

            But the ultimate way to deal with toxic behavior is to just avoid multiplayer games, which is what I do.

              I try to settle the fight from others or me with another player and spread love instead.

              If that doesn't work, which is almost always the case, I make fun of them and text chat some smileys to make them even more furious.

              I don't like it that much though. I quit DotA after the first match due to that. I play almost always single player games these days. Not because I don't want to handle toxicity, but because I don't like most multiplayer games. I tend to like what others don't. If they had a healthy player base I would constantly play TOXIKK and Laser League, but sadly, they don't.

                Depends on a person sarcasm, comedy, ridicule, ignore button, whatever will piss the annoying person the most. If you have spare time then you can do it smilar to Claus Kellerman went with uploading videos and commenting over them on WoT YT videos a lot of wankers got nuked that way.

                  Ignore or just leave quietly. Typically rude team mates are looking to get a rise out of you. The best answer is to not give them that. Heck, even when I troll if people just ignore me it gets boring and I stop. Reward the annoying player when they stop by actually talking to them and playing with them. Maybe they'll learn *shrug*

                    I miss the old days before party chat was a thing, everyone was talking and it was a great laugh. I still use chat in games now but 99% of the time I'm just talking to myself. As for teabaging, sometimes it necessary lol
