There was a REALLY good player back in the day. I wish I remembered his name. But he always trashtalked me and someone else whenever either one of us were in the PLA server.
And I think at one point things got a bit heated and I responded. I can't remember how I responded, I don't know if I said anything bad.
But minutes later he said something along the lines of "Hey don't take everything I say personally. I just like to have fun and trash talk and I don't mean any of those things I say. I'll stop now"
And I didn't really believe him. Mostly because he went straight back to trashtalking the next day lmao.
But every now and then I still think about it. And I realize I never really understood trashtalking until way way later when I got into playing and watching competitive Overwatch. And I think I understand now that people like him want to bring out the best in you. And they're willing to put their ego on the line in front of you and everyone else to prove who the best players are. And it makes me sad that I didn't think of that earlier, but I was young and barely into college at that time.
Now I'm not saying that all people that trashtalk just do it to banter. Some people are just jerks simple as that. But I think that one player I'm talking about is probably just a really good and competitive player, and I just simply couldn't understand that competitiveness at that time. I hope he's doing good now and is trashtalking to his hearts content. He really was a good player
There were a few people I remember as good and toxic (but not in a bad way). Do you remember the name Drugrep at all?
