You may have received online salt messages before, but you've probably never seen anything like this

We've found the Liam Neeson of Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite

If you've played video games online for more than 20 minutes, chances are high that you've gotten a fair share of salty gamer messages.

While the majority of these are usually filled with expletives, death threats and hilarious rants fueled by ever-surprising levels of frustration, (a friend in my local scene recently shared an online interaction wherein a Call of Duty player demanded a home address so that they could come do physical harm) but every once in a while, one stands out.

A player by the name of 482 MastaStef received one such message after using Dormammu (and the dreaded thorn garden attack) to win a bout in Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite.

Unlike the immature examples most all of us are familiar with, this unknown user's words actually inspire a somewhat daunting sense of fear as we read them, and they're not even directed at us.

In short this player admits both their frustration and defeat, but then turns that frustration into fuel to train for a month straight. "When I get back online, I'm going to invite you, and when I do I WILL make you pay..." reads a particularly intense part the message.

The Twitter post feed promises an update in one month's time, and our fingers are tightly crossed that this rematch does come to fruition, as little interactions like this are one of the things that make the FGC great. You can read the full message by clicking the thumbnail here:
