The game of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive can be very rage-inducing, and this Twitch streamer had an extremely strange reaction after he was killed during a match.
CSGO has always been a game that relies on quick reflexes and strong knowledge of map rotations. Even the slightest mistake can lead to a death that will cost your team the round.
If you play the game for any length of time, you’re bound to come across a death that you think was suspect, or a time when you’re killed by someone you think you’re better than.
We saw this frustration boil over which led Twitch streamer ‘tense198_v2’ to pick up his mouse and dangle it over his desk, where he then started spanking it and calling it “bad” as he watched his team play out the remainder of the round.
Usually, when players get angry at a game, they rage in ways different than this, but we can’t fault someone for finding a new way to blow off some steam.
It’s definitely a bizarre series of events that get even weirder when you see get to see it for yourself. Of all the ways to deal with a death, this might be the strangest yet. At the very least, it’s a pretty amusing way to watch someone get over their post-kill stress.
Out of all the esports titles out there, CS:GO has to be among the most frustrating, so while this reaction might have been a bit over-the-top, it’s far from the first time someone has acted out after dying in the fast-paced first-person shooter, and it definitely won’t be the last.
With the game now being completely free-to-play, it’s very accessible to new players, but those who have been playing for years will run into no problems steamrolling newbies.
This could lead to all the new players out there having similar reactions as this Twitch streamer did, but, hey, it’s all part of learning!
If you do find yourself out there on the virtual battlefield, try not to lose your cool too much.
