    Rage = resulting in caring far too much about a video game and any outcomes related to said video game.

    It's ok to care and take pride in how you play but when it leaves you slamming your mouse and yelling at people you need to get away from your computer. :~p

    Being focused in team modes. It's a decent strategy, but really annoying.

    When animals fight their bodies load up on adrenaline, glucocorticoids and other stress hormones and they develop pent up rage to give them the motivation to use their strength. The adrenaline and stress hormones may actually be useful for reaction time etc., however the other stuff gives you lots of real energy for a fight. And yet there you are sitting at your computer. That's where the quick pulse and rage tends to come from... throughout evolution fights were physical.

    If you win then your body just tries to leave go of this in the best way possible. You might get up or laugh or something like that. But when you lose, what have is a cornered animal: panicky, fearful and feeling humiliated. They tried everything they could in the game and still didn't match up, so they look to find some reason why it didn't matter anyway: it was cheating, or camping, or the game is lame or some reason like that. It's not so bad, you wouldn't be normal if you didn't rage a bit sometimes.
    Aways ensure you are maintaining a high FPS rate in QL. Otherwise you can be at a big disadvantage. To find out your current fps rate, use the command: "set cg_drawfps "1"".

    - Poorly designed game or gameplay mechanics (ex: Halo)
    - Objective-based match in which nobody goes for the objective or does his job (ex: Battlefield bad Company 2)

    The only rage I had recently is because of those silly Aero spawns. Like GL spawn 3 times in a row... Usually it ends with 15+ frag difference and a forfeit after 7-8 minutes of game.

    QL doesn't need more tiers, it needs more players (С)

    I rage basically whenever I perform worse than I think I should. I also rage when I perform better than expected and still lose.

    Is this just a game?
    yes

    Is it fun to play?
    yes

    Have you made friends and enemies?
    yes

    Do you sometimes "win", or play better then before?
    yes

    Do you leave your game frustrations in the moment?
    yes

    If you answered No to any one of these, its time to quit, I'm serious
    you need help.

    I go to Vegas once a year to play black jack, I don't plan on winning,
    I play for entertainment value, and I get that. Should I end up winning
    its a plus, and I have bragging rights.

    You QuakeLive experience should be no different.
