    I see it in ranked modes on competitive games, but just rarely in casual matches.

    I'm quite partial to a GILF myself.

    If they are out playing the field at their age, well, you know it's well and truly fair game.

    I used to think this was only a Division 2 Dark Zone thing but I've heard others say the same things in many other games. I've no idea where it has come from but I see so many going "ezzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz" "get clapped" "get beamed son" "ez 1v1" and so on.

    Yet this is coming from grown men.

    You should see how toxic pvp becomes in the Dark Zone in The Division franchise. It makes CS:GO and COD that I've heard look quite tame. The only difference is, you can actually cheat in The Division 2.

    The frightening thing I find is seeing how many humans out there are bots for gamers how they all seem to copy each other for the worst. One does it, a thousand does it.

    I remember it being a popular saying among top level starcraft 2 players

    I got out of the habit of saying it in Rocket League just because I'm too lazy to type it. But you have inspired me to start again.

    the "gl" has become sarcastic, and the "hf" is less fun. imo.

    Long gone the nice polite days playing BF2, Bad Company 2, EVE Online, Strikeforce (UT99 mod), Tactical Ops (UT99 Mod).
    Now in the era of World of Tanks and very competitive gaming, telling "u sck" and "die looser" is common place. And I am guilty too. Is frustrating hence play 2-3 battles then focusing on offline games or non competitive games like Trackmania2 :D

    I remember the days in WoT when you could talk to the enemy team. oh, the hate. particularly if anyone ever dared say "hello" in polish. And yeah 2-3 battles is about the amount you need before you're turned from happy to wanting to murder someone. lovely game with an awesome community.

    It's hard for so many to even say "gg" these days. So many salty people online in games today. Even just being nice to people in so many games gets people salty.

    Some times while playing trackmania 2, there are people who just curse, swear for no apparent reason just because you said gg.
