      Controlling your rage is about keeping your cool when situations get bad or unfavorable. I can already tell that you lack the ability to control your own emotions just by your comment. Taking the game seriously is fine, but acting like a victim and acting hostile is not what breeds quality players. You need to do some serious self reflection and soul searching if you want to get rid of your rage for good my friend.

      If you think not taking it so seriously is the only way to control rage, then you are sorely mistaken. What about people aspiring to be pro gamers? "Stop taking it so seriously" is your only piece of advice? Why not teach us skills on how to control it and not just spout off a cliché phrase? That is not what makes a quality article.

      Exactly. People get to intense when they play League and sometimes you have to step back and not take the game to serious. Yeah everyone wants to win but it is more important to focus on playing well and having a good time. Thanks for the comment and best of luck on the fields of justice!
