What if all the toxic players mark you as toxic? That would be even worse right.
When starting matches just mute toxic players at once and keep doing it. I have done this for many years.
I hope this text is not too controversial in this forum, but is honestly the most effective way I know about when dealing with trolls if u want them to stop. It is not recommended if you get easily offended, but it can give you an idea how to handle people like that.
If someone text spam ignore the text screen for a while or write something cheeky that expose how foolish they are.
Rude guy saying rude things
Example of an answer: wow, how do you think up such excuisite, refined statements? I bet you are really resourceful and have a high paid job. Your family gotta be so proud!
He will then say some more bs and then probably be quit because he feels more stupid for every sentence. If he dont keep quiet he quickly becomes a laughing stock.
Pro tip: most toxic players are some frustrated fools and quickly stops when you dont drop to their level.
Another typical one is the racial slurr:
Some guy saying some racist stupid stuff
(Be aware people like this most often have really big issues and low IQ, as it is a sign of having poor skills in many areas and often having few options in life, )
Answers should be quite harsh and easy to umderstand so they can conceive the mesage clearly. I have changed out some of the actual words I would use to suit this forum.
Example of answer: Why dont you [be quit] with your bs. you gotta have a peanut for brains to think like that do you understand that?
I most often dont care for above reasons that it says a lot more about themselves than anyone else - There is still times I feel like getting a strong message across because I might be playing with someone like 10 years belonging to a minority and feeling bad about trolls like that and then some emphaty might kick in.
Always remember that strangers on the internet dont know you and whatever they say should mean nothing when its unlogical bs like toxic players are.
Also keep off internet for a while if it gets too much=)
Toxic gaming, uh, I mean Happy gaming;)
