Most of the community is frustrating and bad

haha some terrible baddie protoss I team with in 2v2 randoms calls me dogshit after we lose the game, even though I clearly outplayed him and he had shit for army all game. I hate the bad mannered, baddie fucking randoms that play SC2. The game's so damn frustrating because of all the terrible little fucks that play it. I'm ready to just stop online gaming in general, people just piss me off when they are all high and anonymous on their rolling chairs sipping mountain dew and masturbating with one hand. But especially Starcraft II, a game that's supposed to be based off strategy and sportsmanship, defiled by all the little fucking terrible jackoffs back from eating their mommy's meatloaf at the dinner tables with their baby siblings. I don't even bother gg'ing anymore, I just assume the people I'm playing are call of duty kids and go right to the score screen. Blizzard needs to design a challenging non-cheating AI in their next Starcraft installment so I don't have to go online and deal with the vast anonymous hordes of shitty players.

you seem like the type of guy who would complain about someone calling you dogshit, when right before he did that, you called him a faggot, while also doing significantly worse than him. 
 
I don't know though, I'm just judging from your behavior and typing.

Aside from the occasional game almost everyone I play against is pretty friendly and fun to play against. Stick with 1v1s, less annoying people.

Nah. He calls me dogshit after I don't spam vikings to protect his collosi, even though I have no gas and he's got a stack of stalkers.
 
My behavior and typing are due to the fact that I'm about to punch a whole in my wall because I'm so god damned pissed, and this seems to happen every single time I play with members of the wonderful battle.net community.

I never play with random partners. Finding a friend to 2v2 with makes it a much more enjoyable experience IMO. 
 
Also, some of the top SC2 players are pretty unsportsmanlike at times (see: IdrA).

@jmrwacko: The SC2 community is about on par with any other. There are users in it that demonstrate good behavior and there are trolls. It sounds like you've had a string of bad experiences and it got to you. Worst comes to worst, search forum communities for people to play custom games with. 
If you want professional attitudes though, enter tournament play.

Also, the AI doesn't cheat in this game. At all. It literally doesn't know what you're doing until it scouts you, and it doesn't get additional resources. In addition the way the computers 'apm' functions is very human like. 
 
Insane *might* cheat, I can't remember if they included one AI that cheats or not, but anything else won't.

IIRC, insane gets more resources than normal (something like 6-7 minerals and like 5 gas?), not sure about the map hack.
 
@jmrwacko:
I apologise ahead of time as I'm not usually this guy but... cool story bro. It's part of the reason I avoid team games as much as possible, and even then I only do 2v2s and with someone I know who can play the game. I've done some 3s and 4s but... pretty much never again. I dislike losing due to circumstances beyond my control, and while I can deal with that in part in 2s, not so much more than that. Perhaps consider not playing team games. And for the love of Aiur, definitely not random team games. For our sake as well as your own.

Yeah I looked it up, Insane cheats, but none of the other ones do.

And you seem like the kind of person that would put together an emblem in paint that signified a donation to a website we love, just so you can fool people into thinking you donated.

Well, it was done as a joke. I mean, the fact that it's cut off and I left it that way makes it pretty obvious, but I guess I see your point. Anyway, when the OP posts stuff like this:

I agree.  Besides early game chatter (mostly standard "glhf" fare) most of the 1v1s I play go by without anyone saying anything.

Since it is cut-off  I can see where the humorous angle were to come in, and I acknowledge your point about the OP.  
 
Apologies for coming on a little rough, not a big fan of the guys that put the emblems in their avatars to fool other people, but for the lulz I can understand.

I've only played 1v1s but so far my experience has not been that bad at all. The worst I've gotten was yesterday when some guy said "your (sic) so terrible you still haven't beat me". I just replied with "You think I haven't won?" because at that point I had such a huge advantage it was impossible for him to come back (took out all but a few of his drones and his spawning pool) so for kicks I just sat back, spammed drones and teched to mutas. 
 
Note: When I say this is the worst I've gotten, I don't mean this was insulting to me. I mean this is probably the only time someone has talked negatively to me in 1v1. Usually people just leave without saying a word.

I think that if you were a serius player that cares about the game and its comunity you would be already in a clan, meeting nice dudes who know the game to either play with them or learn from them, I already did that...   it does the game miles better..     So what about trying to actually be part of the comunity instead of trolling?

@jmrwacko:  Take a break. After a while, you'll find the breaks invigorating and refreshing. I always have some sort of epiphany and come back with a vengeance (so to speak). Anyways, what I mean to say is that breaks will do wonders for your attitude and habits. Punching holes in walls = fail.

And this is why playing Starcraft used to be a very personal experience where you'd either play with friends in a close circle on your chat channel or a small community clan, also in a chat channel. Starcraft II seems much more desolate and isolated and I feel like there's noone to play with but my good friend, the ladder. It's frustrating at times, but there's only one way to get over it, and that's by getting better.

2v2s and higher are really never going to be as balanced as the 1v1 game is.   As much as it might be fun, these games will always be dominated by T1 units and cheese, just because it is so easy to overwhelm one player quickly with rushes.   And while it can be possible to hold off in a 1v1, in a 2v2 or higher quickly ends up in a 2v1 or 3v1, etc and your base and production can be wiped out before your allies can reinforce and save you.
 
Solve your problem by play 1v1s or 2v2ing with friends.

I don't play random teams or co-op, as I don't feel like playing with shitty players  who do incredible things like the 2 pylon openings, or 4 gate w/o cybercore. Or the fast evo chamber? Oh dear! 
 
The people I 1v1 are generally nice though.

BM Bugs me too, I was playing a 4v4 where only 1 guy on the other team was left and there was still 3 of us. He went off into an island in the corner and build like 4000 photon canons. Asshole. We eventually took him out, but it too 2 hours, for one win. People just need to learn to accept loss.
