Today, I got banned from my favourite online video game for calling a person on my team a "Baked Potato". FML

NoCnNoJustice tells us more.

You'd be right! I'll try and condense the story for you. So basically, I was playing Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (the game mentioned in my post) and my team was messing about and killing each other. In my frustration, I called the one who was the most annoying on my team a baked potato. It seems that he too must have been frustrated, because the next thing I know, he's called a vote to kick me from my team. Since I'm at the top of the leaderboard and I'm carrying my team (despite losing by a huge margin), I think to myself "Well, it's not like they're going to vote 'Yes', they need me on this team if we're ever going to win!" But, to my surprise, they all accepted the vote and I was kicked, consequently resulting in a 7 day ban from Competitive Matchmaking. Well, that's it! I hope this backstory behind it was sufficient.

Why did you call him that?

Why did you call him that?

Because potato is used to describe slow things online, like computers. He likely called him a baked potato implying his brains were mushy.

A decently good insulting definition for the term baked potato is combining stoned and couch potato. Saying they're worthless and the only life that have is connected to wifi.

He was clearly one of my kind and feared for his life upon the threat of being baked.

What I want to know is what game it was.

Maybe OP was just insinuating that the person was hot and delicious I doubt it, but maybe.

#131 - That's not the gamer definition, that's just for overly-sensitive SJWs.

I have nothing subtle to say, so I will just post this brownie in a mug recipe: INGREDIENTS (SERVINGS1) _2 tablespoons of melted butter _2 tablespoons of water _1⁄4 teaspoon of vanilla extract _1 dash of salt _4 tablespoons of granulated sugar _2 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder _4 tablespoons of flour DIRECTIONS _In a 12 oz coffee mug, add water, butter, vanilla and dash of salt. Whisk well. _Add cocoa powder, whisk well. _Add sugar, whisk well. _Add flour, whisk well. _Microwave for 60 to 90 seconds. _Center should be slightly molten. _Becareful not to overcook it. _Enjoy eating it using a spoon. _Becareful because the brownie will be hot.

is this your way of tell op to make brownies brownies make everything better

he probably insulted admin ;)

I think there should be a follow up

Unless the admin was a fucking tidal wave of diseased rats, I sense this isn't the first time the OP has been on their reports for insulting other players.

Usually you don't have an admin for an actually game in a server, it that's what it uses.

really that's all it takes now?? that sucks Op sorry

Well, I've been on reddit recently and I found this thing where I believe people with Down syndrome are called potatoes. It's disgusting and I don't see any humor in that at all. Maybe the servers/whoever was monitoring thought that's what OP meant.

I thought you were full of shit, but Google says you're right. Apparently it refers to "I can count to potato." It's also used against Australian Aboriginals.

But to be honest, any parent with a child with mental disabilities needs to monitor their children's online activities more. People curse and insult online because that is where they take their frustrations out on. It's better to call a stranger a touch hole than beat the shit out of your neighbors car... Just saying

Are you implying that disabled persons can't handle being insulted? Because if you are, I can provide at least one counter example (myself).

A person with an actual learning and mental disability, not somebody pulling a state check because they are awesome at deception, should not play online games with aggressive and violent language. That being said, I have a severely autistic nephew, whom I have devoted much love and lifestyle changes for (learning sign language, spending time with him with sensory therapy etc) mental disability pretty much means part of their brains do not function properly... So ya, they shouldn't be online with abusive assholes who may hurt them emotionally. :-)

You say you have an autistic nephew. Surely you've dealt with a few assholes who thought he was a) just a bratty kid, or b) too stupid to be in public. Did you not think that by accusing me of lying, you might be one of those assholes? Don't get me wrong, I get where you're coming from; I'm pretty eloquent in my writing and you have a hard time reconciling that with the idea that I could be autistic too, but let me tell you some things you can't know just by reading my comments. I was diagnosed with Aspergers when I was three. I've been in special ed my entire school career. I've been in and out of speech therapy. I get nervous when I pass people on the sidewalk. My ability to talk drops in and out. I can't go to the store alone because then I'd have to deal with the cashier. When I was younger I'd get into trouble because other kids figured out that I'd do just about anything they told me to. School staff treated me like I was fucking braindead. I threw chairs. I hid under tables. I hit teachers. I had a yearlong battle with the school district that made me into a cold, cynical douchebag that I hate being. My original comment was meant to be lighthearted and tongue-in-cheek, which I now realize wasn't clear enough. But your little comment about lying to get welfare was way over the line, and frankly, it fucking hurt.

I'm sure you could stretch that into an insult... Nah probably not

Look up baked potato on urbandictionary.com and you'll understand. Lol

Baked meaning "high" and potato could mean anything...

Why would you call them a baked potato??

Because OP is a bully.

I've always called people potatoes when they sit there and mooch exp and the like.. guess I won't anymore.

Those 12 year olds can be real assholes sometimes.

What game is it. The community is probably shit like league of legends or cs:go

You dont play games like League or cs:go for the community. If community is the reason why you play games, then you should look at MMO games like runescape

Runescape where no one talks to eachother? In the years that I played it from 2001 to 2009, not very many people spoke. Even when I would play it briefly in 2010-2012. The most you'd see is "selling lobby pots" or something equally as exciting.

I believe games like ArcheAge are far better than Runescape, or cs. I've met many awesome people playing MMOs such as Deicide, twelve sky, 2moons, perfect world, cabal, neverwinter, rohan, tera, aion, and many others. ArcheAge is my most favorite though. Because i haven't met as many annoying ones on that and the admins are great. I'm curious what game OP has been banned from.

Actually, nobody talks on Runescape because they're all in clan chats. lmao

Runescape was my childhood

@44 I used to play it between 2006-2010. In those 4 years I met a lot of people, one of them with whom I'm very good friends with to this date and who I even met IRL, others who i still talk to. I have no idea how good/poor the community is now in 2015 since I dont play anymore, but if the most you've seen was "selling lobby pots" back in the old days then maybe you never cared enough to involve yourself in the community

Just gonna drop in and say Aion has a pretty decent community. ;) Not a biased judgment at all. Or attempting to persuade other gamers to give it a try. -nudge nudge wink wink- Oh and Siel server Elyos is the best server/faction. Again, I'm not being biased whatsoever. Hue.

My bet is League.

I suddenly have this uncontrollable urge to play Aion.

@48 How you compare an FPS to an MMO, where you actually "socialize" with players at all times, is fucking beyond me.

Let's be real, half of the active Aion accounts are gold farmers because the game itself is a massive bland grind. Maybe I just hate all MMOs. I haven't enjoyed one since Spiral Knights, and I beat all the content too quickly. Anybody wanna make an MMO that doesn't suck with me?

I was just saying runescape and cs because they were mentioned. I wasn't really comparing the communities of each one. I was stating that in my opinion i like mmorpg's more. Also if you're going to play Aion, go for Asmos! I played on EU server Telemachus and the Ely are over populated.

Yea I like Tera it has a pretty decent community. It has a few people that you wana pinch in the face but hey what game doesn't lol

I like potatoes.. baked ones

Ffxiv has a very nice community :D

I have played several MMOs over the years. I can't exactly say when I started, I don't keep track, but Neverwinter has a semidecent community, along with FF14, RIFT(if you found the right people), and Spiral Knights, just to name a few. This is my opinion, feel free to agree or dissent.

I've just gotten into ArcheAge myself, #48, and I've gotta say, the community is fun and the games clever, I'd probably suggest it to others. But oddly enough, I'm a carebear, which is usually looked down on, and still managing to have a blast.

After reading what could be the colloqial, slang definition of a "baked potato", and possibly understanding why you were banned, I have just one question; who calls another person a baked potato, for any reason?

Depends on what meaning they used? If it is a stoned couch potato, I can see it. If it is the first urban dictionary definition, I cannot see why you would call someone that.

baked potato: yummy as fuck so it was nice

You're so not giving us the full story! You probably gave them passive aggressive comments prior to this!
