Tips on Controlling E Rage

To know how to control E rage, we must first know where the E rage comes from. A main reason for E rage stems from the extreme desire to win. Everyone has the desire to win it is a driving factor in our society. Having the desire to win is one thing, but taking a win more seriously than the well being and feelings of others tends to cross of the rage side. It is called rage not competitive anger. Asses why you are playing video games in the first place. If you are playing to have fun, it does not make a lot of sense to spend the whole game raging. That does not sound like fun at all! If you are playing to win and gain an edge, why waste your energy on raging instead of trying to win. A person only can influence so much and rage lowers the amount of influence that a person can do. This does not only apply to video games, but also real life. Rage destroys more than it provides. This should be an important tool in your arsenal against E rage.

      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!
