What does WTC mean in gaming chat?

What the crap

If you’ve ever seen WTC in a gaming chat, it’s usually a sign that someone is pretty upset. Just like with the terms WTF and WTH, WTC is used to express disbelief or anger about something that’s happened. It’s often used when someone is frustrated about an unfavorable game outcome.

So, if you’re in a game and someone sends you a message with WTC, they’re probably not in the best of moods. You might need to put in a little effort to calm them down. It’s a good idea to understand what they’re upset about and be respectful.

However, if the person using WTC is really ticked off (or as the gamers say, ir8), it might be best to step away. Sometimes, leaving them alone is the best course of action. After all, it’s just a game and there’s no need to get too worked up about it.

Example for using ‘WTC’ in a conversation

Hey, did you see that new update in the game? 🎮

Yeah, I did. WTC, they nerfed my favorite weapon! 😡

I know, right? It’s so frustrating when they make changes like that. 😤

Totally! I’ve spent so much time leveling up with that weapon. Ugh! 🤬
