I'll be that guy but honestly getting gaming buddies to play with is probably the easiest social skill out there.
See somebody in game that you had a "good game" with. Add them, message them. They might be like sure
dude and you're off to the races.
Doesn't mean they won't be a dick later or scream in your ear though
I have a crazy amount of gaming only friends because people do just that. Between this board, reddit, twitter, and discords you're in there pal. Not everyone is trying to be hardcore; ESPECIALLY, most Bleeding Edge people.
