To people on dev, stop saying gg first if you won. It is very unsportsmanlike. Although I did not want to go through the hassle of making what is a very obvious point to me, I encountered enough of this situation that leads me to believe that other people find this concept foreign. Stop saying gg EDIT: first if you won; it is very pretentious and unsportsmanlike! I want to discuss the history of the gg to show how this view came about over 15+ years of RTS play. It is not used as an icebreaker after winning contrary to some opinions. The history goes way back to days of Warcraft 2 LAN play (on Kali) and the need to shorten the game because in that game, the loser is eliminated when he loses all his buildings AND units. Instead of playing out the contest when the victor reached an overwhelming position, the community decided it was polite and sportsmanlike to just say gg as acknowledgment of the victor and resigning. This was in contrast to a possible bad manner (BM) play where you can possibly hide all your units and buildings and forcing the opponent to find them all. So in the 15+ years of the RTS genre, the tradition is that the loser decides when he lost and says gg as a show of sportsmanship, then loser acknowledging the achievement of the victor. This teamliquid poll also shows that in the SC/SC2 community, saying gg is frowned upon because of the reasons I explained. http://www.teamliquid.net/forum/viewmessage.php?topic_id=161393 When I see someone type gg, after they won, it just makes me mad coming from a RTS background. I immensely dislike playing against new people on dev because of this. I do hope that other RTS players back me on this, and I would like to listen to other civil players as to why they think it is appropriate to say gg when they won.
