Although designed for recreation and good times, video games often lead to the player becoming incredibly frustrated. Ragequitting, controller tosses, screaming profanities are just some of the ways that gamers handle their pent up anger. And although we expect pro players to be composed and calm, especially on stage, occasionally even they reach their boiling point. Here are the 5 craziest rage incidents in gaming.

6. Leffen Self-destructs

In the Smash community, the Godkiller, Leffen, is one of the most polarizing members of the scene. He’s one of those guys who are like the villain of the game, because of his questionable behavior while losing. Whether it’s him playing beneath his standards, or struggling during the Fox vs. Samus matchup, Leffen has no issue relieving himself. He just explodes at times. Sometimes it can be as simple as throwing or breaking the console after the loss.

5. Nono With the no-no

In a best of 5 series, it’s incredibly important to stay composed. Well, that wasn’t the case in the 2013 EU LCS Summer Promotion tournament. Sinners Never Sleep and Against All Authority were fighting for a spot in the EU LCS. However, the game was incredibly one-sided, as Against All Authority found themselves in a huge deficit. Things got worse after their ADC, ‘Nono’, was promptly killed at 19 minutes. He then just quit the game calling GG and was fuming apparently.
