I get that this could fall under "naming and shaming", but why are there ppl like this TVP T50 in the game?

For those that don't want to watch the replay:

It started off with me saying "It's almost christmas, spread them good vibes" (as I started doing that recently, due to the season).

Then it somehow spun into a discussion about how in the TVP's country (russia I presume), christmas is celebrated on the 7th of january, and not the 24/25 dec as in most european countries.

TVP then proceeded to call a teammember that was saying that most ppl celebrate it on the 24/25 dec a retard (for whatever reason).

I then told the TVP that saying such is fairly nonsensical,k to which he proceeded all the way back to base and teamkilled me.

WHY?

Also, I don't want this to be a witchhunt, just a reminder that there are some real d*cks out there. (And yes, I want some moral support from time to time as well)

For some people christmas equals religion, and talking about religion is always a very sensitive topic and therefore should be avoided.

Orthodox church in Russia apparently still uses the julian calendar, which is 13 days behind the normal gregorian calendar, that's why the dates differ.

Well, yeah. But when trying to spread good vibes because of an upcoming holiday leads to teamkilling, something is wrong.

Any teamkills involve something being wrong by definition.

And just looked at the replay summary, you of course had the additional issue that some people have a "special" relationsship with arty.

Perhaps he felt strongly that Rasha Xmas is better than others. Silly thing to do, but luckily not a very serious matter. Merry (possibly inferior) Christmas/happy holidays/stronk tonking vacay to all! :)

Christmas is religion.

Religion is bad.

Better celebrate new year instead.

With a new year tree decked with new year decorations.

And Father Frost and the Snow Maiden.

;)

People are stupid. And the anonymity of the internet is a multiplayer of stupidity.
