Tilted Fables: The History and Lore of the Four Tilt Types


Grandpa, why do people get tilted? Why, tilt is as old as gaming itself, little one. But the spirit of tilt takes many forms. Would you like to hear a story? Yeah! Once…there was the perfect player. Passionate. Competitive. She never died in lane or missed a cannon; She was beloved by her teammates, all of whom shared this inner fire and love for the game. Everything changed one fateful match, when she finally made…a mistake. Her opponents were the first to point it out, quickly joined by the perfect player’s own teammates; Mocking her, telling her to uninstall in shame. Her head told her “mute.” Her heart cried “murder.” Self-conscious and blinded by tilt and betrayal, This Barbarian now thirsts for blood of friend and foe alike — Screaming curses in caps lock; threatening to feed; Welcoming the sweet embrace of death as she charges down the middle lane. There was once a noble Paladin, A master of strategy and leadership; a diligent reader of patch notes Who understood each meta perfectly. One day, the Paladin and three companions found their dead teammate At a crossroads deep within the jungle. “We must go this way to pursue the objective,” the Paladin declared. Their teammates disagreed. “The other way is better,” one replied. “We must have revenge!” The petty argument spiraled out of control, tilting the Paladin until they could take no more And drew their question mark-ping from its scabbard. “You’re trolling, I knew it all along!” they said, Spamming ping after ping in the ears of their comrades. “OBEY ME IF YOU WANT TO WIN!” But when their teammates abandoned them, the Paladin was left alone, With none to hear their helpful advice. They wander the jungle to this day, hoping to restore order to the chaos of solo queue, Demanding anyone who will listen to report their whole team. Long ago, there was a positive player who enjoyed the simple pleasures of gaming. One day, she came across a demon on the side of the road. “Why are you so positive all the time?” The creature asked. “I am in control of my emotions! How can I be upset if I take regular breaks between games? Nothing can tilt me! GG, WP!” Seeing this as a challenge, the demon cursed the happy player: You will lose seven games in a row, each day for a thousand years! Every night you’ll want to end on a victory, but that victory will come at 3 A.M.! You will spend 7,000 ranked games trying to reach your Gold promos, Only to watch your teammates feed and your power go out! Your tilt will simmer within you, boiling, Eating at you until you EXPLODE!” Legends say that when the moon is full, The cries of this stoic, scarred veteran echo softly in the night, As she queues for just…one…more…game. Many who tilt pay homage to Lord DGAF. Able to predict the future, this enlightened nobleman was a beacon of knowledge and sportsmanship. But too much wisdom can be a deceptive curse. Madness and melancholy consumed Lord DGAF as his future-sight became corrupted by experience. He believed he could tell instantly whether a match was over before it even began. Succumbing to despair, Lord DGAF chose to embrace the cruel joke that is life. “FF at fifteen!” Lord DGAF bellowed with pleasure as he gorged himself on wine and tears. His teammates begged him to try harder, insisting they scale better to late-game. It didn’t matter — Lord DGAF had been tilted since champ select. “Late game doesn’t matter! Nothing matters, except pleasure!” Lord DGAF cackled, flashing into a wall for the lulz As the feelings of emptiness and pessimism grew inside. Hatred, or passion? Nagging, or leadership? Masochism, or grit? Jaded nihilism, or experienced foresight? Tilt blurs the lines and twists our perspective. Feelings are complex and weird, but we must learn to harness them. We’re all human; tilt is inevitable. The question is: how can we master it? Mindfulness and regulating my emotions? No, no…no! By visiting the Riot Games Player Support site.

  1. First your team bans your declared champ.
    Then the mid and jng ignore your lane as the enemy jng and mid dive your tower over and over.
    Then they call You a troll, and 4/5 surrender passes, with both teams ganging up and declaring you were a troll and feeding, and that they will all do their job and report you.

  2. Half of these wouldn't exist if you guys would work on solving trolls and not making random cartoons to make fun of players πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  3. You forgot that after growing weary of losing games with Meta comps, Lord DGAF picks BardTop. He knows that may win lane, but he also knows that his fellow Lords will GGEZ at first sight of the pick. At least meeps and magical journeys will numb the pain.

  4. This is so accurate lol I'm either 1 or I'm 3. Never mind quiz says I'm the paladin. I'll take it, this actually makes me want to be a nicer player, it's so accurate to actual behaviors that it kind of wakes me up to how others might view my actions and how it starts stuff in some games. I like this Riot.

  5. i got the scarred veteran, then watched the video and yeah, that was too real. i try my best not to get too "just one more game, just until i win" because i could go until 6am lmao

  6. Hell, watching this video tilted me let alone the actual game, if they know their game is so toxic they have to make an educational video about it, maybe they should try dealing with the people who cause it to be so toxic instead of hoping we will sit through another video like this one.

  7. I low key hope that riot uses the tilt-type-test to put players that matched up with the barbarian or lord dgaf on record for potential punishment :>

    It feels like these two types always send out bad vibes even when you win early (they'll start trash talking the enemy laner/team) but especially when you get behind.
    It's also scary to start a game when one of your team mates did nothing but criticize and whine about your champion pick after you locked it in during champ select and couldn't change it anymore even if you wanted to.

    If you are a barbarian or lord dgaf: you are the main reasons why this community is shit. Please go plague other games! ;(

    Sincerely, a scarred veteran

    Edit: typos

  8. I mostly see lol as a great moba game and is inspired true folk legends like yas that is inspired from the japanes god name that i dont know

  9. Riot are you guys making anew champion
    1:41 helmet bro
    1:30 to 1:49 when your team are breaking,feeding,quit,and wont even listen and do you guys this is the game sins that we shoud learn

    Good old times when we listen to our modern gaming grandpa

  10. Who wrote this dumbass shit ?
    Michael Jordan
    : The 2nd greatest basketball player who ever lived had a famously ruthless competitive streak, often sparring with teammates if tilted.

    its always a terrible and borderline dangerous idea to talk smack that man michael jordan

    Don't trash talk with MJ Riot watch this : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bcDBJJkWvDk

  11. This is the only reason why I love Riot Games, they have so god damn good videos, graphics. stories, perception of live, art, vocabulary… and URF as a permanent game mode would ruin everything.

  12. Sure the community is toxic and easily tilts but i for one would rather deal with toxicity and tilt rather than working for a certain company with a bad history of sexually harassing employees on the day job. πŸ™‚

  13. You need to add captions for other languages. I want to share this with my lol friends but doubt that they would understand this.

  14. The main issue that I see on what's causing the most tilt is the fact the game lost so much of it's solo carry potential. And instead has transformed into a solo weight. A good player could outplay a fed enemy champ back in the days, but now it's almost impossible to do that alone, and usually requires an entire team to claim the bounty and set balance to the team lead. Instead of the game relying on who's better, it's now relied on who has the team that that doesn't int 9 deaths in 13 minutes. The game is a blast to play with a premade of 5. But a complete horror show to witness as solo.

  15. I like that they'd rather make comical parody videos about tilt instead of fixing the game and the issues that cause a majority of the tilt.

  16. This is basically Riot admitting that their game is bad and causes an abundance of toxicity and they're making a joke about it…

  17. funny video, but the biggest joke was visiting riot support about anything… riot support isn't real. Just a robot that counts number of reports per number of games and honors and then decides who to ban and who to very slightly reward

  18. Going to take the quiz but im probably lord DGAF….. tilted since Karthus support select πŸ˜€ or Yasuo adc πŸ˜€

  19. You know riot. For having the most toxic community of all gaming communities. You sure like to point the blame at your player base. There is only one common denominator in all this and its your game.

  20. Please don't blame this on players. You are acting like people have to have unlimited tilt tolerance. This game makes people mad and is not healthy.

  21. Well, now I get why I'm still in bronze. It's not cause I lock in as yasuo every game, I was just cursed. Probably. Definitely.

  22. Did you guys really spend hours putting this together instead of fixing the underlying causes for people raging and tilting?

    Maybe start punishing int and trolling harder and there will be less need for this emotional management in a video game.

  23. I like barbarians, paladins and scarred vets. DGAFers are the real enemy.

    If I die and one of my teammates tells me how to play or lightly flames me, then I know it's winnable if I just work with him. If I die and a teammate starts a surrender vote, it's a DGAFer.

  24. Currently sitting through a 14 day ban because of barbarian reasons
    Edit: watched it 3 times in a row now, its too good

  25. Normal League players: Dang, these broken metas and toxic players make this game very unpleasant. I wish they would work to balance this wonderful game better.

    Toxic League players playing broken champions: AHAHAHA GET REKT NIBBAS GGEZ

    Riot: puts entire balancing budget into making video that mocks their entire fan base

  26. f you riot you ban players for say kys but you dont ban my adc wen she is 0/16 and troll f you never ban for troll you just say it bad game and no ban but wen the player say she is bad ban xd lol nice have nice life riot games

  27. Can we just talk about the art for a second?

    Even for a joke, the art for this is stellar. All of these people would also make amazing DnD characters.

  28. Wow, the Veteran hits so much home. Been since season 2 playing by comformism instead of pleasure. I had such a good time with the game but the toxic environment just tainted my head mad, so I simply got used to all those annoying "DGAF ff 15 im afk open 0/2 5min no gank" every 5 games in a row and gave up hoping for a better game

  29. This isn't really related to this video, but I just remembered by watching this

    It's been a really long time since I've played a game where all my teammates are active in chat, work together, have fun, and win.
