I don't know if it's a general feeling but nowadays people tend to be the most passive aggressive possible.
Every game I get people :
pausing after a kill
using tips to praise other's mistakes
spamming questions marks
And so on… With pro players encouraging this kind of behavior, we've gone from the occasional flame to constant pressure by ego tripping players…
I know that Dota is a game of pride and performance, but at some point having people pausing every game and mimicking the flaming hivemind is really unproductive. People can get banned for cheating, smurfing, abandonning games, abusing matchmaking, but being the most unmannered douchebag is allowed?
C'mon we can do better than this.
