Are there even any decent people in this game?

I'm new to this game.

i never read anything positive in the game chat, only namecalling.

Is this what to expect in this game?

I play other games like league of legends and it's the same. And you can't escape the game as easily.

See it as some players are getting too passionate about it ;)

 

I don't really care for what players say, we all can get angered by having no support, when we feel some are playing with their ***, that kind of thing.

As nobody really knows what others are doing, and why - it's FFA.

 

All in all, just shut down the chat if it disturbs you. Or try to cool them by some "craphappens", that kind of thing. Not that it works for them, but it helps to stay calm.

Some people are toxic, some people are not. I see people being toxic in the team chat quite often. However I try to stay positive myself and encourage teammates to work together and give compliments where they are due. I have actually met a very friendly player a few days ago in a game. We worked together well to take down the enemy when we were the underdog. We also chatted quite a bit after the game. It is nice to see there are friendly players as well.

 

And I generally would file a report with Player Support if a player really gets out of line in-game.

The people you meet in random games are probably not the people who are going to give you that gaming community feeling, if thats what youre looking for. If you want that its better to find a clan of casual players who just want to play the game together. When looking for a clan, dont be afraid to ask if you can hang out a few evenings on their discord and take a look around.

We all have the capacity to be [edited], the game can create a lot of frustration.

There are limits, anonymous insults/threats towards your family or certain diseases are over the line. Cowardice is never excused. Then again, the best thing is to limit your community to your national channel and your clan...

Indeed and I would like to see more use made of of the malicious Communications Act 1988.

There are nice players, but they are outnumbered. Perdonally I must confess I'm more often toxic than friendly as well. If it bothers you, find a nice clan for decent interaction if you want this, and just block all chat.

1. turn off in-game chat

2. turn off in-client messaging

3. remember it's not a team game.

Nooooo, that way you will miss the little jewels some people send you :p Just don't let it get to you, insults from the enemy are actually praise and insults from teammates are usually retarded. Just enjoy the game and make fun of the people that insult you.

Join a clan if you genuinely want friendly people to chat with. Ingame chat is seldom used for constructive purposes.

all games have a toxic community. why? because people generally are toxic in online anonymous environments.

it's human nature. grow up and accept it for what it is.

 

want to play with nice people and have fun? invite friends over, form a clan, or hop from one clan to another until you find a friendly bunch.

 

oh and use the "block for this battle" function on people that are abusive or spam the chat. or heck, go for black list directly if you want.

If anyone starts ranting at me nowadays I simply send them a 'Friend' request.  That seems to shut them up pretty quickly.
