The next time you get called a bad word while gaming, just turn it into a song.
Being verbally abused by other online players is a part of the whole experience of playing Dota 2, a multiplayer online battle arena game – and it can get even more unpleasant if you are what they call a ‘girl gamer’.
But this doesn’t faze popular Japanese Twitch streamer and Dota 2 player Xiinya who took all the insults – particularly the ones from Southeast Asian gamers – and made it into a silly song.
In the song SEA SERVER, Xiinya repeats the stuff she hears while gaming on the Southeast Asian server. You’ll be glad to hear that Singapore is well represented with ‘cibai’ (vagina in Hokkien), ‘ka ni na’ (f*ck your mother in Hokkien) and ‘lanjiao’ (penis in Hokkien, again).
The EDM-esque song even features a drop but repeats the same insults as lyrics.
Other noteworthy words you can use to insult people with are ‘anjing’ (dog in Bahasa), ‘putang ina mo’ (a phrase to say ‘your mother is a whore’ in Tagalog) and even the hilarious and unexpected ‘mak kau hijau’ which directly translates to ‘your mom is green’.
Feedback from YouTube users has been highly favourable, with some saying it made them feel patriotic.
Xiinya also made the song available on Spotify – the perfect accompaniment to an uplifting morning run.
