Although by default, many gamers would be less than desirably matured due to their actual young age and limited exposure in life, things can improve much faster if we are aware of the childishness of our actions and thoughts.
Just by being aware that what we are doing is childish and with a desire to change for the better, we can mature much faster as a player and as a person.
While we can't really control the type of persons we encounter in WvW, we can learn to manage their toxicity and salt better.
Let us list out some of the childish behaviors in game:
I'm pretty sure most WvW old-timers would have experienced 1 or more of the above over the years.
As a frequent troll in game, on the forums and being a popular Necro roaming video creator myself, I've faced my fair share of salt/toxicity.
People have gone from criticizing my game-play to my character to my family to my ancestors.
In the past, I would have traded vile barbs with them while feeling real anger.
This is however not a good way to handle things.
Your mood turns sour, your day turns bad, you lose sleep, over a video game!
So how do we handle these behaviors better?
The most important tip I can share is, be aware that this is only a game, a minute and ultimately unimportant part of your life on earth.
And when you realize this, you'll be able to ignore the salt/toxicity.
And ignoring and not replying, is your best shield against them
