Is a Video Game Beef a Beef If the Other Person Doesn’t Know It’s Happening?

Out of nowhere, I have become a person experiencing a life of perceived slights, the kind of things sports talk show hosts spend hours yelling about when trying to understand how an athlete like Tom Brady, worth hundreds of millions of dollars, keeps playing a violent sport like football into his 40s with a passion I can only find for opening a beer on Friday night, because a team decided not to draft him decades ago. It apparently keeps him up at night.

I think there can be such things as one way beefs.

For example in TF2 if someone is dominating you and you’re trying to get the revenge kill but they’re not even aware they’re dominating you.
