When it comes to getting along with people, it's not really something that you learn to do. There are some tf2 players I would never team or hang out with and thats fine but your issue seems to be that you can't stand to be around anyone you come in contact with which seems to be a different thing than what I've experienced.Maybe you could elaborate on what things specifically that annoy/frustrate you with other people?

As for getting frustrated in Jump maps/MGE/DM that's just something that comes with how you choose to approach the game. I used to do Jump maps/MGE/DM because I wanted to win in them which made me get frustrated and raging at the same things that you're describing. It wasn't until I started going into these things with the mindset of getting better that the rage sort of disappeared. In one of my earlier seasons my practice would only come from scrims and matches and that worked for me for a while, because I had a tendency to burn out from grinding DM all day long.

If you feel like you don't find any enjoyment with the game anymore, take a break. It may take a day, week or a month before you feel that urge to play again, or not at all, which is fine. If you don't find enjoyment with the game anymore, the best thing you can do is to just stop playing. Playing something that makes you feel bad is never going to end well.

EDIT: A thing that I use to do in DM is to not look at the scoreboard when I play, sometimes the will to be on the top of the scoreboard can tilt you.

Maybe it's because I'm in open but everyone I meet seems to either have an ego the size of mars, and not in a good or funny way, in the sense that they just come across as having something to prove constantly, or just be an edgy memer that finds spamming binds funny.

That is just something that comes with different teams. I was lucky to find some pretty serious and mature dudes in my first team and I can understand if that doesn't happen to everyone. You'll just have to keep looking is the best advice I can give you. Maybe be more specific when it comes to writing recruitment posts. Idk

If you don't enjoy playing the game anymore then don't play it, it's that simple. Find a different hobby that you genuinely enjoy, nothing's forcing you to spend your day playing (besides maybe commitment to your team). If you want to step down, do it.

Why don't you enjoy talking to other people? What makes you hate them? What about BM is annoying you? You shouod elaborate on this.

As far as under performing, when you see everything as shit, you're going to see your play in the same light, so I don't think it's the root of the issue. You also seem to have problems with people IRL. You don't have to quit completely, bjt maybe limit your playtime to just jumps and DM for awhile might be good for you.

The issue with that is I then get paranoid I'm being trashtalked.

Just learn to deal with it. Honestly, everybody puts up with it at some point in their career.

I obviously dont know what this huge disagreement is but I feel like that doesnt have to just end all forms of communication with your teammates if you like them and got along with them in the past disagreeing about whatever the fuck doesnt mean yall dont have to talk even if 1 side or both sides said really dumb shit while angry I feel like you can still hang out and be friends even if it takes a lil while of not talking to eachother or whatevs

and as for getting mad and being paranoid about people shit talking I know exactly how you feel if you want you can use an alt and that sorta fixes it for me but thats just putting a bandaid over a problem that I guess neither of us know how to really fix so with that ill just wish you goodluck

and as for playing bad and shit that tends to happen if you arent having fun and its harder to have fun if you are playing bad its a really awful circle but usually taking a break can fix it

Stop treating the game so seriously and have fun. You're getting in your head and it's going to ruin any chance you have at enjoying yourself.

I'm not sure how old you are, but look, life is going to throw enough shit at you, there's no need to create more for yourself. The day this game starts to wear on me and stress me out, I'm done. But that's not going to happen because of my name.

"Pinky_Narf" - not only is Pinky (check out Pinky and the Brain) hilarious but it reminds me never to take things too seriously. Sure I want to win and I want to be better than I am now, but at the end of the day it's a game we should be playing because we enjoy it.

Edit: Who the hell cares what some stooge says on the internet? Don't sweat the mouth breathers.

Cyanicthanks for the helpful and supportive comments. i think if i change my mindset a bit i might be ok but it's a long way to go.

Best advice I can give you if you're getting pissed at your team - focus on improving your game. You can't do anything about other people not playing well, but you can help yourself.

If you run into an asshole in the morning, you ran into an asshole. If you run into assholes all day, you're the asshole.
