It has been awhile since I have done anything on Deviantart due to my crippling addiction to TF2, and I'm not the sort of person who likes to linger on a bad experience, but this one time I'll make an exception.
With the Christmas season over and done with all of the TF2 MVM servers are flooded with newcomers hoping to get an Aussie (even if they don't understand you need to finish a tour not a mission), which in itself can be very frustrating as you get partnered with people who may be well out of their depth. I know I shouldn't get so frustrated, after all I was in the same boat at one point (and still can be considered in one) and should help them figure out the best and most efficient way to deal with the robot threat and try to not to seem like I'm looking down my nose at them and give them some of my patience.
That patience was tested
While playing on an advance Rottenberg map a young kid, not out of public school, made this comment after a fellow play trash talked that he (the player not the kid) was gay.
"If your gay then you have some serious mental problems."
I have never been so dumbstruck in my life! A KID thought this and thought it was okay to say out loud. I wasn't the only person taken aback by this as the only thing said in the chat was "wow". This was followed by one of the fastest vote kicks I have ever seen and the kid had no idea why it was initiated against him!
And as the title says I was amazed, a group of random strangers, who are happy to shoot each other, swear and be generally nasty to each other saw this as too much. I'm not a very positive person in real life, but that makes me happy.
