    Why are so many toxic people in multiplayer games?

    A little about me first, I love this game but I suck at Smite. Rather, I'm a below average player. Despite just recently hitting level 30 I am still learning how to build/counter build items. Call me a scrub or whatever.

    The main point of this post is to ask what haters get out of messaging teammates/opponents after a match and giving them grief? If you want to message constructive criticism to me, please help me get better. But just calling me a loser literally helps no one.

    And I know, learn to ignore idiots blah blah blah. But it still sucks when you're just trying to enjoy yourself and end up getting shut down instead.

    Rant over.

    It's hi-rez's fault that there is a lot of toxicity. Their matchmaking is absurd and people get really mad when they have to play with people that have no idea how to play.

    No it is not, the personality of the people you're matched with is not necessarily because of the matchmaking. People will be mad bad match or not. People on the internet are generally toxic.

    Because people are butt hurt cry babies that throw tantrums when they lose. If they want to play with "pros" then they should queue in ranked matches not casual (which I assume you're playing in)

    That's an absurd answer. The OP is diving into a deep pool of physiological thought here, but without getting too into it, I'd assume that the majority of toxicity is caused by the ability to be anonymous. There's little-to-no repercussions online, and users can't see the result of their comments or words. Mix that with the fact that quite a lot of younger people will get a lot of their first social experiences online, and you got yourself a vat of toxicity.

    meh, true in most cases, but i have a good record for winning public matches -i hate the toxicity of ranked players- and sometimes it's just ignorance... randoms just don't want to listen to other randoms. everyone is stuck in the mindset that "all" randoms are bad and i think that's our main issue on public/ranked matches on smite. i wish people would cheer the fuck up, stop being miserable and work together for the betterment of the community. too bad it probably won't happen

    ranked has more butt hurt cry babies that "think" they are pro's then anywhere else... I have found I have more success and better team mates in casuals.

    Am I being toxic when I start cursing at the dude that that starts hopping up and down at the start of the match in Arena let's say, and intentionally starts feeding the opposing team. starts laughing , and then feeds everytime he comes back to life on purpose? Am I the toxic one , when I want to strangle him/her for being a jackass for no absolute reason. None what so ever!
    Yes , yes I am ..why , because I'm stuck with this idiot for a minimum of 10 minutes, and I'm not going to DC on purpose obviously to land myself a deserter penalty.
    So please someone tell me , what is the correct course of action when you meet someone like this?

    No. With an attitude like that, I don't think you're a below average player at all. The below average players are the ones who think they know everything, or the ones who don't care, and you are neither of those.
