I've met fucked up homeless people with less salt than the lol community. Which is honestly rather depressing to think about.
How is that depressing?

That some bum on the streets in probably the worst condition they'll be is less salty than a screaming manchild ignorant to their luck of condition in life.
god you're fucking dumb. You have zero grasp of how humans work. Are you autistic or on the spectrum? I'll excuse your ignorance then, but if not, jesus christ you talk like a boomer. "Video games are a waste of time stop getting mad when playing them go outside. Oh you're depressed? Think of all the starving children in africa who die"
I certainly didn't state anywhere that video games were a waste of time.
you did tho. You said people aren't allowed to get invested in a game, or a match and rage when they lose because they want to win so bad. Salt doesn't come from life sucking, it comes from not being able to get what you want. A homeless man most likely didn't try hard to succeed and then failed so miserably he lost everything and can't come back. Homeless people most likely feel powerless, or feel that the system ain't worth living in. It has nothing to do with salt

Never said they weren't allowed.Putting implied meanings into my words again. People are allowed to do as they wish but it doesn't make it any more or less inane.

"Salt doesn't come from life sucking, it comes from not being able to get what you want."

Self defeating sentence.  Life sucking on occassion can be summed up as not getting what one wants. I knew many homeless who could be salty and bitter over that. But never to the extent I've seen some gamers rage in their own particular way. Keep in mind that I never said somebody can't get salty over what they want to have it denied. The psychology behind games creates an immense need and focus, so naturally if anger arises it will be as intense as the need. The key difference between a manchild and a rational human being is whether or not they choose to lose control of their emotional stability and rage. Which is why I find raging gamers to be a pathetic sight. I've walked alongside people who've had reason to rage as much as some gamers do, and yet they maintained a presence of decency and respect throughout their entire time with me.

So perhaps you can understand my thoughts now. Have you ever been sad in your life? Really sad, down and out to the point of tears? And have you ever bumped into someone who was also sad to the point of tears, but found out that their reason for being so upset wasn't really much of a valid reason? It works the same with anger.

Before you say that I said one can't be angry, I never advocate for that. People always get angry sometime, even me. The difference is how they choose to handle it. The very subject of this thread was the salty community of lol after all. Their bouts of saltiness are pathetic.
Your attitude is detrimental. You're saying people should stop taking things as seriously as they do and control themselves. Geniuses, athletes, pretty much anyone at the top will lose themselves to their job. They'll neglect the fact that they're crippling themselves, eating for days, or other shit because they're so invested. I don't know why you're comparing a gamer who is trying their best but failing, and a homeless person who doesn't have enough money to live comfortably. If we're going to the extremes and saying that the homeless person is trying reaaaally hard to get jobs to the point where they're obsessed, then it's on the same level of intensity that athletes, geniuses and other are feeling. Humans don't care about what's normal or accepted as good conduct when they get tunnel vision on what they want. They will sacrifice everything for it.

Humans don't care about what's normal or accepted as good conduct when they get tunnel vision on what they want. They will sacrifice everything for it.

Never said anything about taking a situation more or less seriously. I just find people's lack of composure over what's arguably trivial in a lot of instances to be a display of something almost akin to that of a child, which in my shoes, I'd be embarrassed to fall victim to. Don't misunderstand me, I know how people act when they're invested. It doesn't make rage any less of a childish thing depending on the situation.

The reason I use the homeless as an example is because I've crossed paths with people of many backgrounds and stories who you'd figure would be absolutely furious at the hands dealt to them. These are some of the worst case scenarios I've seen for something going wrong in somebody's life. Some of them were angry, enough to let it affect negatively how they operated daily. And some of them rationalized it and processed it and acted with a level of dignity you wouldn't really expect. So to somebody like me, who's seen that stuff, it's almost perplexing when I watch people freak out over some shit that's arguably trivial in the long run of their life while you can have somebody who's life is ripping apart day by day and they maintain themselves.

I understand investment and anger and a lot of things. And I understand that many don't care about what's considered as conduct or anything good. It's still just a sight for me to see because I can't help but think how poorly these people would fare if they were handled actual curve balls in life, and how hopelessly blind and lucky they are to exist in a state of luxury where the thing that pisses them off so much to rage and act retarded is an activity meant mainly for relaxation, even if they are invested in it.

I'm telling you dude, your idea of what's mature and what isn't is super detrimental. To become an adult you have to lose your ego and feel like a shell that's living life on autopilot. Never truly invested in anything. Take a gamer that rages a lot in videogames and put him in a real life crisis and he will act the way normal people would. There is the argument that if you try and fail you will feel worse than if you don't try and fail. That's true, if a gamer tries hard and fails he will either get mad or sad. That's reality for those who are invested. Do you think becoming sad is more mature than becoming mad?

I don't believe becoming sad or mad are the marks of maturity. Everybody experiences emotion by default, it's what you choose to do with that emotion when it hits you that marks your emotional maturity and your ability to control yourself. If you can learn to control your emotions, then no longer are you a puppet for reasons and actions you don't stop to think about. Nowhere did I say that you had to live life on autopilot. I lived life on autopilot, and it's a different kind of hell. As for a loss of ego? I think some people would benefit in their lives to shave a bit off.
