It’s my pet peeve when people use GG in general chat incorrectly.
Okay, let’s pretend it’s… Huttball. We have the ball, they get the ball. They almost score, we get the ball back. Back and forth. Frogdog crushed! Rotworm down! At the end of the match, it’s 3-3 and with thirty seconds left it’s a total tossup who will have the ball when the countdown ends.
That, my friends, is a good game. I think it’s great to share this sentiment with the opponent, even if they lose, because clearly this was a tension-filled match with ups and downs, crazy feats of derring-do, and battle scars in the making.
So it really irks me to see either a teammate or opponent use GG in general chat after a ROFLstomp. 6-0 in 4 minutes is not a good game. Fun for the winner, definitely, but not “good” because GG should be for friendly sportsmanship, acknowledgment of a worthy foe, appreciation of a hard-fought match… not for gloating.
Unless, of course, you’re the loser and you want to tell me GG even though you never had a chance. But if you win? You just look like a jackass. Save that GG for a game you actually had to work for, thanks.
