Really?  This is a "GG"???  To the losing side this nothing more than gloating and intimidating.  When it is a blow out match, keep the "GG" only to your team chat....

Thank you, that is all.

It used to be good manners in games that had massive followings and really money tournaments. 

I dont see how you "shake the other team's hands " is so offensive.

I always say GG no matter the game, even if my team fails hard. It's called having good manners/sportsmanship

No, suck it. 

 

It is just a game, don't be so "delicate" about it

OP you're reading too much into it, might've been a good DD duel on the opposite flank or something.

Even if you know in a certain instance its them gloating, ignore it.

They're trying to get a rise out of you

It's called good sportsmanship, the same reason why little league baseball teams still shake hands with each other even after a game ends early due to the mercy rule.

I'm sure the reds were all around 30% of health due to lack of focus fire --  Either way, GG doesn't mean "close game".  As is with every match, there's a 1/2 of those in the match that had things go their way, and half that did not.  Change up your tactics and the ship you bring to better influence the match while coordinating fire -- that is after all, all you can do.

Quit being fragile, and accept good sportsmanship when it is offered.

When I was brought up as a wee lad playing football and baseball, we always met mid-field and congratulated each other for a good game.  Sometimes the score was close, sometimes it wasn't in the same universe.  It didn't matter...because good sportsmanship doesn't care.

It is typical etiquette to allow the losing side to be the only ones to say 'gg' or at the very least the first ones to say it. 

This is more of a competitive thing, so in random battles with random people, you get apes. Just ignore them.

Yes, it's generally BM in these situations.

No, it's not really a big deal.

Had a blowout the other day where the losing side said gg, and I told him that he is too nice for this video game lol.  We had a laugh about it and complimented each other after.

Saying "gg" at the end of a match is just a common courtesy, much as is saying "glhf" is at the start of a match. It tells me that someone at least realizes that there are other humans in the game.

Speak for yourself. I've received it on the losing end in this game, starcraft, football, soccer, on the court; gg is not the same as EZ.

When two letters get you this worked up, wait until you encounter actual real problems that actually affect your life.

If you are expecting more from Human beings, I am sorry but they/ we are all terrible. 

And what Lert said.
If the game is working you up, I wish you luck in life sir.

Please add some armor plating to your ego, it seems a bit thin-skinned.

Not in absolute victories such as that.

GG has become itself weaponized in certain situations and this would be one of them.

If a game results in a total and absolute victory, best that both teams go home and forget this one the sooner to play other teams  in new fields
