First time in years i threw a tantrum while playing any game, while playing BF1 tonight i got so pist off i had to break something. Years ago it was rare that i got so angry that i felt the need to break stuff, like punching my screen or slamming my fist on the table in anger. But it happened and on my old screen you can see an imprint of my right hand. Also my old school laptop plastic cover is more or less broken from physical abuse. It's slow and it is my number one reason for ever getting that angry that i try to break stuff.
So after having a half bad round in BF, normally i don't have bad rounds. For me a bad round is me having a 10 /6 KD ratio, and extremely bad is it being a tie or minus KD.
However if you play with DX12 in BF1, the Esc menu becomes so slow that you can't do anything for 10 - 30 sec, after pressing the button. Rendering you a big fucking target on the battlefield, that can't move or counter enemies. You can't even press options, quite and all that would exist in the Esc menu. So after that shitty menu costed me two deaths, because i wanted to switch team to play with my friend. I had meltdown, something i thought i didn't get anymore.
So while playing i began yelling, threw my headset and picked up my chair and slammed it to the floor, twice and punched a wall. When the round ended, i pressed ALT F4 to instant quit the game (which you can't..takes 10-30 sec) i pulled the PC power cord in anger instead.
Positive things to take out of this childish show of power of not being in control
- My expensive Sennheiser headset landed in a soft couch.
- My table is not going to break because i punch it.
- My brik wall is tough and don't break from a couple of punches.
- My chair did not break from being slammed into the floor.
- I did not break my monitor, PC or any other valuable things.
Now i'm happy again and laughing at myself.
