WG games are so full of toxic people

I was the 2nd best performing cruiser in the game and got insulted and harassed through in-game chat and menu chat. I did make a mistake by turning to a BB's line of fire but it was all for good fun and not an excuse. I was raking in over 100,000 damage in the Fiji and was enjoying the game.....I was the 4th or 5th players from the top after the match.

 

Why is the game full of toxic people? It made me want to quit the missions. It's not worth it being insulted over a game. The way the system is set up makes people toxic out of frustration.

PvP play is like that, one of the reasons I hate it so I play PvE. Much nicer people there IMHO. When I do venture into PvP play to do missions and farm rewards, I put the entire enemy team on mute. That itself cuts the nonsense to half. If a teammate is annoying in chat, I mute them. If a teammate starts the typical "you people all suck" after getting sunk, I mute them. I tend to mute almost everyone who is saying anything that is vaguely annoying or nasty. PvP still sucks, but the mute feature makes it suck less.

There is a certain minority of players who feel personally insulted and wronged when they "undeservedly" lose a game because of a teammate's mistake.  These players play WG games.  They also play games by every other videogame developer.  When they're not playing games, they're probably annoying the people they interact with in real life.  You should ignore them.

What you see in a WG game has the same toxicity as an orange.

 

If you have problems handling game chat then you are either younger than 12 or about to have the real world grind you to dust.

You're performing well and enjoying the game. That's all that matters. Don't let some silly toxicity bring you down.

Go to Black Desert online. 

Create a account.

Play 2 hours and read the gamechat.

Read 1 hour through the forum.

Comeback to WoWs and enjoy the peace, the good manners and the respect that this game offers.

WGing invites it. Those saying it's just the internet spend too much time on Reddit and 4chan and facebook and youtube comments. Many sections of the internet are civilized and fine. Many MP games are civilized and fine. The ones like WGing titles, or Battlefield, or COD, or games like that invite the bad attitudes, and most of it is borne out of the same source: performance dictates the amount of fun and/or content you have. That's really it. So in WoWs case, XP, Credits, and stats to a large degree all contribute to players having [edited] attitudes when the game doesnt go their way, because when the game doesnt go their way they GENUINELY lose something. You know what I've noticed about 90% of RTS's? That same attitude doesn't exist, with one noted exception: CoH2 and low and behold, they have unlocks and are very stats based.

I would wage *big* money, in the 1000's of dollars that if Wargaming 1) Removed Persistent Stats, 2) Gave access to all tree ships at all times (remember when games did that? boy those were nice times... no one had to GRIND unlocks in BF1942), and 3) Allowed killed ships to immediately join a new match after leaving a battle, the attitudes would change DRAMATICALLY in this game.

Part and parcel of being part of the internet community.

Let live and take it as it is because there will always be people who are pissed off at you regardless of what you do, or they just really enjoy trolling people for amusement but that's a topic for another day.

People are toxic because, most likely you are playing like crap.

 

It's so easy to complain, say how bad people are. Maybe it's you, maybe people are toxic because you are playing like crap.

 

It's so easy to complain on here, it's rare people say....

 

I played like crap, I [edited] up and lost a game. It's common to whine about people telling you that fact. I suck a lot lately, haven't played much and I sucked when I did. But. 

 

I understand it's a team game, someone tells me I suck I try and figure out what gave them the reason.

 

Maybe it's you...

Guy on here earlier today with a thread that blamed others for getting torped by his stupid torping.  It's THEIR fault!  Typical blame shiftier. But this game is no way as nuts as is WoT. Be thankful.

I find the toxicity is not common in PVP matches. It happens but is more the exception than the rule.

God I love the smell of toxicity in the morning

It's called the internet and it requires thicker belt armor

Just a thought..  Were you in the back farming damage in that cruiser?  Some people..  Say BB players that are getting torped to oblivion..  Usually like to have some cruiser support.    Not saying you didn't help out...but how much damage you did or where you ended up on the team screen at the end really has little to do with how you may have actually helped your team.  It is a sore topic, but cruisers are really good at being useless as heck over all and still doing really good for themselves.

Good post.  Very good.  What many don't realize is that in this game no one really gives a sh#t about you numbers.  Really, most don't, but WG has always promoted that. Sells ships and tanks. Pit players against players.  Smart marketing! Yes.  I have NO idea who is good or bad in this game unless I see one of those "look at me" threads where they go all out to show ya how great they are.  I spend bout 2 secs looking at those" look at me posts" which can go on and on and on with all those screen shots. Boring....totally. Most just care about their own personal intrinsic value....and do not give a damn bout what others think.  If that makes any sense.:Smile_glasses:

As someone else said, ignore the chat. Unfortunately, that means that you may also miss important messages from players that have nothing to do with salt. The best option you have is to division, but that isn't always possible. Honestly, I ignore chat most of the time,

Don't let it get to you. Do your best always ok. My dad used to tell me one "aw sh$t" equals one hundred "atta boys"
