Sorry to say I have started to play with the chat completely turned off. This is the most toxic community chat in any game I have ever played.  The consent stream of filth, putting others down, gloating,and so on is a huge distraction from game play.  When I started to see the new "gifting pearls" for TET gear or T7/8 horses and also make 500mil a week messages I realized the chat box was not for me.  I can much more easily and without  harassment find information I need online. Goodbye chat, the lunatics have taken over the asylum! crimson_sorceress_by_laclillac-d8gc8rj.j

You surely ain't used to MMO/MMORPG's or online games in general, i dare you to find a place where people are that kind and altruists, but i guess you can't unless you start to play games with no competition where every content is absolutely made for all.
If people insults you that's another matter and you can always report them, but a post which states that toxicity of a community, is kinda toxic itself.

You know what else you can do? Block people, turn off the chat and NOT make an attention seeking post about it on the forums. If people like yourself left games, they'd probably be in a better state. :)

I rarely see that much toxicity in channels or world chat :o

Chat is like 90% people trying to buy, sell, recruit to a guild or LFM doing scrolls. It's actually one of the better games I've played in terms of having to block chat retards. Obviously because it costs energy to post in channel chat and loyalty to post in world. Kids that plays MMORPG's mainly to shit spam chats, they dont have enough energy to do it all day long in this game.

There's occasional PvP related flaming sure, but I cant say it's in violation of ToS or anything like that. Just players calling others bad after some GvG, the normal crap.

This forum is pretty toxic though, hundred times worse than chats ingame. If people where forced to reveal their family&character names on their forum account, you bet they be a lot nicer here lol.

In case you don't know you can personalize a chat windows, while i'm playing i have one that just show me the marketplace, whispers and system notices. Also, if you need information i recommend you find a good guild, because in the world/channel chat there will be always spammers and bored kids that try to be trolls, and most online games have them sadly.

I don't think my message as many others were that toxic, but you're kinda doing the same: "You ain't agreeing with me, therefore you're toxic", so it may prove your point from your side, however it place you also in the same spot that you're criticizing, just sayin'.

Perhaps I was not clear enough in the original post so I will supplement. I like to see people helping others with questions, game related chat, guild notices etc. I am referencing  the smutty sex stuff, covert racism,  bulling, spam, and invites to scam sites like.  I have tried changing channels it is the same on all of them.  I am not the only one who has found  this games chat to be beyond the pale.  I have played other mmo's and yes they had a few trolls but nothing compared to here.  Just saying that while I would like to keep my chat open the rewards are not even close to the downside. How anyone can defend the stuff that comes up in chat, (we have all seen it) is beyond me.  Enjoying the game much more now.  Esc, Edit UI, Chat_Off. Good gaming to all.

No one's defending it, it's just that most people aren't as sensitive to that as you are. When I see something I don't like in chat I don't read it, when I see something I like I read it and maybe even join the fun. But to say that BDO's chat is one of the most toxic ones in all of MMOs is a gross exaggeration. BDO's chat is, for the most part, very tame and nice compared to some other games.

People falling for scam sites isn't really "toxic", it's just stupid people falling for stupid things on that one.

Else, the only thing you can really do is turn chats off or apply filters if it bothers you that much. People tend to troll channel and server chats, so if it bothers you, ignore it or make it so you don't see it. It's relatively normal for this stuff to happen in an MMO, soooo...

Some have agreed with you, but as i said before is pretty common in every MMORPG and you're just generalizing placing yourself above the rest of crowd, except this last message.
Do you see anything wrong in this?

just add key words into your filter for scan sites and whatnot. And turn your chat filter back on to block out some of the other stuff you dont like seeing?

This is the most toxic community chat in any game I have ever played. When I started to see the new "gifting pearls" for TET gear or T7/8 horses and also make 500mil a week messages

Briefly explain us what part of that is toxic? If you can't handle the fact that others want gear badly and like in every mmo fake advertisers then I have no idea which mmo you've player before. May I suggest you Euro Truck Simulator or Farmville? Those games will fit you better as in not being toxic lol.

The "toxic community" problem exists since the 2009 kids took over the Internet, making Meme*s out of literally anything and trolling something "funny".

In the past the motto was "dont feed the troll" now its more like "be the funniest troll".

And like any other online game someone claims that its most toxic game ever blabla.

 

Seriously why do players even bother to care? why are you wasting your energy? Simple fact is play and enjoy the game and ignore shit

Shrug it off, you'll be fine. If you are in great need of a "community" join a nice guild, interact with them instead.

OP I would agree with you and it's the same in most MMORPGs.  Blocking people helps but after blocking hundreds of people I just gave up and turned it off.  I use a chat tab that I set up with only guild, whisper and party chat and the game has improved greatly having done that.

Simply ignore it.  There are some good things that come up, but generally on in your guild chat.

Blocking isn't really a viable option is it? New people come along all the time with this stuff :P 

My advice: Grow some thicker skin. I realize some people take things more seriously or are more sensitive but being offended by what some random person says on the internet and taking it personally is what we did in the 90s when this all came along for the first time :P 

Also: Realize people are just trolling for fun. People get offended by the weirdest thing nowadays and if that's you I'll just say good riddance.

Thank you for all the replies, in a way the post was to see if I was too "sensitive"  or if others felt the same. Valasceria I agree with your timeline it seems in the last 5 years things took a dive.  As RonnieJw said blocking worked for me until it was over 100 then the chat off entirely seemed to make sense.  A example for me would be when I simply asked how to finish a quest and got whispers of "choke on deez nuts"  "all quest will end when you kill yourself"  "fking newb".   I hope all players can enjoy this game without the depravity, crudity, and lack of empathy for fellow players that pop up in the chat box several times a day.. For me chat off seems to be the best option for now. Thank you all for the exchange of views. NN
