    Is there such a thing as self-butthurt Anhur? I'm not sure your rating makes sense.

    My rating makes sense because whether I'm butthurt or not (and I've already stated that I am) has little to do with whether you're butthurt also (and it's obvious you are).

    Butthurt is what unites us as Dominions players.

    Wait, hold on. What is the definition of butthurt? I thought it meant something like being unjustifiably salty/sulky/angry towards your opponents about loosing or somesuch. Ragequitting a game/conversation being a perfect example. I'm angry at my own dumb mistake but not at anyone else, and not sulky or anything. Does that still qualify as butthurt? I'm genuinely interested.

    Ragequitting a game? Never done that. I've always played till my last man standing or until I just get bored wasting my effort "stalling" my enemies' advancement (which is not the case in this game, here I love it). Ragequitting a conversation? Never done that as well. Just because I rarely use smilies, have "serious" tone in my messages, and don't like wasting effort on meaningless "deals" you've offered in no way implies I "ragequitted" anything.

    This is only a fucking game. I have "serious" tone because that is who I am, not because the situation is oh so butthurt-inducing. Etc. Don't feel like giving more explanations to already unneeded and useless one given right now.

    No no bro, I'm not calling you butthurt at all (never said that), I'm trying to understand what the word means to most people and whether it can be applied to people mad at their own mistakes.

    (I love pointless conversations :D )

    You are butthurt when someone f*cked you in the rear and you are upset about it. Metaphorically speaking. Usually.
    In this case, you did that yourself.
    Hence you are butthurt.

    Butthurt means that your butt is hurt (this is a joke). Whether someone hit you in the butt, or - as in your example - you kicked yourself (quite a feat if I may say...), or both (which is the reality here), is of secondary importance. The important thing is that you feel some anger because things haven't played according to your wishes - towards yourself or others, it does not matter.

    I see, thank you. I will bow to the majority opinion, of course, but I always saw butthurt as having an active social component. Being sulky or angry towards someone else, stopping talking to them or such. Unfortunately, it's very hard to stop talking to yourself or shun your own company.

    I'm very very sorry, I've only just arrived and I'm too tired to play/type rationally, I'll have to push it off to tomorrow. I truly apologize bros.

    Playing rationally is overrated. Get some sleep, then get drunk, then play your turn. :smug:

    I don't need to get drunk to play irrationally.

    R'lyeh should be set to AI or another sub found. Letting others just easily pick appart R'lyeh ruins the balance of powers. Why do I care? I don't, but I can never watch such sleazy injustice being committed!
