So you messed up. You put a ward down near a tree and the vision is limited.
Or, you missed a stun that would have helped kill an enemy carry late game. Oops.
These are what we call "mistakes", and they do happen to all of us. You probably feel bummed about it, and rightly so, a little self-criticism isn't a bad thing.
But what you don't need is your teammate, one of those four brave men fighting along side you, to tell you that your standardized test scores likely score lower than then national average, or that you were deprived of oxygen or another essential nutrient during your mother's pregnancy. This verbal reprimand, by someone you should trust nonetheless, crosses the line of criticism, into the territory of abuse. This ultimately leads to negativity, and a torn community.
How can we lessen this negativity? I believe to do so, we must first take a look inside of ourselves. If all of us could just say one positive thing about ourselves, we would be on the road to a happier, more positive community. For if you are able to see the strength in you, then you can begin to see that same beautiful quality in others.
One positive thing about me: I excel in a "team-oriented environment" and am able to give clear, concise orders while listening to the input of others.
Let's hear it HoN Community, let's hear what makes you and therefore all of us, strong and positive people.
One thing. I have never made these "mistakes" you talk about before. So I berate and badger anyone who does for at least 5 minutes in my ignorance.

I have no problem with admitting my honest screw-ups; i also usually apologise afterward and try to be better.
HoN translation: i was playing Glacius and when me and a team member were fighting an almost dead enemy, i missed ice prison and froze him instead of the enemy. I almost kicked myself irl, so i apologised to that guy over voip and text; although he obviously wasn't happy, he said something like "It's ok, just take care next time!" I'm being extra careful ever since.
Nice thread btw
I'm good at commenting on my team-mates' mistakes. : D
What i say to myself when:
I make a mistake ingame - ********** **** *** STUPID GAME
You make a mistake ingame - ****** ****** **** STUPID GAME
All in all im a pretty fair person, dont you say.
admitting mistakes = happier team = better teamplay = higher chance of winning
I'm good at raging over small mistakes.
I'm good at forgiving people for mistakes as well as new players and those with high ping.
I'm good at being harder on myself than others. I usually end up calling myself **** stain rummy.
Oh, you've put ward near tree. How funny.
And missed stun. So mercy.
Trying to take last hits from carry? Great, you'll be able to buy more wards.
No creep stacks? Whatever, nobody really needs that.
Didn't call "miss"? Do not know what can be good in this, but there should be something.
Keep farming instead of finish match? Wow, awesome items you have.
Rarely missing anything i'm pretty disappointed in myself if i miss anything critical or f*ck something up and usually make fun of myself so it wouldn't tip over the flow of the game too much
Also when you "put a ward next to a tree" fell all the trees and np?°__°
I never, ever stop trying! I'm the eternal optimist.
My hero suggestions:
Gust - Druidess - Mobeus - Stone Angel
Im good at being very optimistic, and i go towards apathetic if im going to lose for certain. The result: i never get pissed ^^
That is exactly how I (and everyone) should play each game. There will always be an winning and losing side and trash talking a teammate just lowers your chance of being on the winning side. As a result I have established quite an elaborate 'ban list' and 'ignore list' for myself.
Next time you see a trash talker simply type '/ignore add (name)' and '/banlist add (name)' to make sure you never see them again also don't forget to turn off ally assist as extra procession.

I'm a person that measures people by what they intend to do and not what they did. Never judging a book by it's cover, and despite rarely trusting people, always believing in their good intentions. I'm also easy to admit my own fault and last one to blame others only for the purpose of spreading negative energy.

Definition of internet survival: In the world where sociopathy meets with common approval you have to maintain yourself and not lose your sanity in the stream of crowds opinion. Only the fools will follow the lead of cowards that hide their weaknesses or attempt to burn bridges between people to make themselves look big. Keep Your mind clear of prejudice since our own fooled judgment is always the reason of further complications.
I care about other people. That is why I get so angry when someone who is a douche deliberately ruins a game for 3->8 other people (I'm not included as I thought that was correct).
It is also why I get angry when I explain to another player that they could be playing better and they reply with a defence as effective as "u mad bro?"
I'm only unpleasant because other people are unpleasant. If they're nice to me, I will be nice to them.
