    Rage quit

    Rage Quit: To stop, cease, or discontinue an activity due to aggravation from being constantly pawned.

    That's one of the many definitions of "rage quit" available on the inter-webs. Finding examples of "rage quit" is easy. Whoever, studies about "why" rage quit occurs are not that many.

    From my own experience in multiple gaming forums, I believe that the rage-quitter's goal is become a martyr in an attempt to rally the troops. The video below would be a perfect example of such strategy successfully achieving that goal:

    That kind of success rarely happens in real life tho.

    This does not compute, Will Robinson.
    You can further the brotherhood of man by eliminating class.
    You can lift the wage earner up by equalizing earnings.
    You can bring about prosperity by overturning the holders of power.
    You can strengthen the weak by eating the the strong.
    You can help the poor by destroying the rich.

    The Buddha could have told you that thousands of years ago. You can't get pwnd if you don't have ego in the game.

    Here's another curious instance of "rage quit". This is when you get fired, but instead you say you quit...

    Funny you mention it. BF3 is aware that Rage Quiting is a valuable stat that should be measured. Ergo they keep 3 numbers when you play: Wins, Looses, Quits. ATM my stats say I quit 10% of the time. Mostly due to real life stuff that requires immediate attention. But yeah, some rage quitting due to < expletive > incompetent team mates making mah loose to many games in a row.
