The other night I was in a match, at this point I have mastered Rath and Deande so while I wait for Pendel <3 I am trying to work on Thorn.
So I hopped into Meltdown and there are two friends with Mic’s, less than 5 minutes into the match one of them says “REALLY? I got an assist. Bet it was Thorn stealing my kill.” I wish he had taken a look at the scoreboard at this point to see I hadn’t so much as engaged an enemy this match but I moved on, to lazy to rummage around for my headset (Xbone) to correct him.
Then later I see the same player at 25% health against a 75% health Orendi so I drop a Blight as they are face to face in order to sway the fight his way and then move on. Less than a few seconds later I get the kill and he flips poop yelling about how Thorn is stealing his kills and is trash.
At this point I am 5/4 with 30-40 minions kills, focusing on wave clear since no one else is and I am happy with that, but this kinda irked me a bit. I glance around for my headset to talk to him but decide it’s not worth the time.
Finally near end of game, El Dragon on the enemy team has finally gotten to the point where he is melting faces and has become our number 1 issue, the guy on the mic is complaining about him all the time, I am pushing hard left since almost everyone went right, we are maybe 50 points from a win. Then I hear the mic guys say “REALLY!? I have him down to no health and he still gets away!!” Then low and behold I see a fearful El Dragon run by me close enough to sniff with a sliver of health, I turn to see if anyone is chasing him and see no one so I take the shot and get the kill. I am once again called a kill stealer and trash as a result.
Finally as the game is coming to a close, I make one final push to get our minions in and am ambushed, I am slowed and pelted, as I am trying to escape I see the other player standing there who says “If you want help maybe you shouldn’t steal kill.” And he allows me to die (Playing as Ghalt I believe). We still won but it was likely the most irritating win I have ever had.
My question: Why do people insist upon acting this way over kills, especially when I was focused on pushing the objective 90% of the match?
People complaint about kill stealing like its a real issue even when people are not stealing kills. Creates a bad game even if you win.
