Chat Attack! The Deterioration of In-Game Player Dialogue


32 posts in this topic

Posted

Is it just me or have the chat channels gotten worse since Sunday?  What started off as relatively peaceful and sensible dialogue has now deteriorated into a silly flame fest.  As the week has progressed I've noticed more insults and provocative messages between players, as well as plain rudeness and and uncalled for obscenities. 

Is it only going to be worse when I log on this evening?

Just ignore the chat?

Let the kids do their thing.

Block or report (if necessary) if you feel like it. It's no different than the usual MMO chat. It can be worst.

Just turn off global chat and save yourself the trouble.

It's been fine on Orwen. Then again I figured Edan is where most of the toxic nonsense was headed.

It may be horrid later on after launch.

This is why I have a chat tab for no system/channel chat for more private and less clutter.

 

Also, remember:

Most likely is going to get worse. All those people complaining in forums will start complaining in game:

- The mobs spawn too fast

- The mobs spawn too slow

- It takes energy to chat

- Cash shop is over priced

- Jump height on cosmetic items? Pay to win

- Pets OP

- etc etc

You're playing a game where PvP is the end game. Chat will only get worst, not better.

I am playing on EU/Croxus. Chat is pretty quiet all the time. No obscenities or insults either. Happy with it so far. But I feel it us the server with the lowest population, so that is probably the reason.

Proceeding as expected.

More and more players are hitting the 45+ lvl range. Crowded PvP enabled grinding spots equals in some not so happy players, especially ones on the receiving end of the killing.

Also depending on your server, you might have chosen the more toxic one crammed with high horse PvPlebs & trolls. Tho I doubt any of the servers will be safe after official launch, but certain servers will most likely stay more toxic than the others.

So yeah, it's only going to get worse, especially the more people there are and the more PvP there'll be. But what else would you expect anyways?

I've noticed it more too. When head start started I enjoyed chat, there were interesting conversations. Maybe most have joined guilds and are in guild chat?

 

if the game goes FTP eventually it's all over for chat

Meh I only look at it when I am doing nothing but running around, and that rarely. Make a second chat and group up with somebody/guild chat, general chats are always full of retarded kids.

what they should do is make it cost 10 energy to post there watch the chat be nothing but on occasion useful stuff and low levels who are just being toxic can't be so toxic or no one can.

The deterioration of chat is probably linked to the deterioration in maturity level of the gamers.  I'm lookin at you high school males (callin them out specifically because i used to be a high school male xD).  You know how the guys all grew up over college and grad school and finally in the work place?  Yeah, they havn't had that growth yet.  Do a "request chat ban" if you've got the energy or switch channels.  

I'm on Orwen and it's been pretty great so far.  Only had one guy spamming "cant stump the trump" inbetween all his racial slurs lol.  Other than that, no issues.

I'm starting to think maybe we shouldn't tell people how awesome Orwen has been.  I mean i'd like them to come join us, but what if the spammers find out too? :ph34r:

Eu server here too, it's been great. No spam no rubbish. Really good experience compared to beta. The server states "overrun" so it isn't low population either ;)
