How do you handle a toxic teammate on your own team?” – Anonymous Twitter User

Coach Goyo

Game Coach
“Great question. I think it’s best to reach for the mute button and carry on as best as you can. If it’s someone who is throwing, I also think abandoning the game is a great decision to save your mental, so that you don’t have to deal with the player anymore.”

Coach Raz

“If the toxic person is not open to discussing it, and you can’t manage to get to a middle point, just ignore the person entirely. If the game itself provides you with a mute option, do that without hesitating. You will have a better experience overall, plus you should never force someone into changing their behavior even though is wrong, most of the time they will just ignore you or it will get worse.”

Coach Firefly

“Toxicity is only fixed with 3 strikes. The first strike is a warning, the second is a talk 1-on-1, and finally, strike 3 is finding a replacement and benching the player/kicking them instantly. If the toxicity is over a certain limit, I instantly kick and find the replacement myself.”
