Congratulations - your toxic player base lost a long-time player

I have 4K hours and I'm officially done with this game. The community playing to farm and treat others game experience with such little regard means a long-time player will find a better game and hopefully a better community to support. Good ######### riddance. And lack of communication with console players means nothing will ever change.

    I'm sorry to see that you're experience with the community is bad, but I don't think your gonna find one that's any better. Most online games with an even slightly big playerbase are incredibly toxic.

    I made an account just to share my thoughts. I don't visit online forums. Skeptical all day, ask me if i care at this point.

    If the community is toxic, I make my game and close the chat finished or not read it, but would not stop playing just because others do not like to lose and begin to insult you, just do not read it and keep playing

    This is why I say that the ‘toxic’ players goal is to demotivate. Congrats, OP. You’re admitting to giving in to negative thoughts rather than thickening up your own skin.

    This is you giving into you.

    Having played a good amount of games online. Every community for sure has issues, but this community I would easily put as Top 3 most toxic game communities by far.

    I've had those matches before...

    One of these days I'll wise up and quit :D

    Probably not today. But maybe one day!

    Y'know, I always find stuff like this funny, because I really don't see a lot of toxicity. Some in-game BM? Oh definitely. Real toxicity? Rare.

    The phrase "thicken your skin", is an attempt to invalidate someone's emotional response to a situation. We never have the right to do that. Everyone has the right to their feelings... just because it may not bother you, it doesn't make your response the correct one.

    Greenhorn, I am sorry to hear you have reached your quitting point. I hope you can find a game and/or community that you feel isn't so toxic.

    That's what comes with an online game + competition. Just ignore the chat or change your console messaging settings. It is not that difficult. Ever since I changed my console messaging settings my gameplay has been far less annoying. It's a shame I have to miss out on meeting the genuinely nice people, but it's worth it.

  • Steel_EyedSteel_Eyed Member Posts: 3,672

    I don’t know anything about validating or what you are saying. I am saying that you don’t have to let people get to you like this; which is a sign of thick skin.

  • JordanMaliciousJordanMalicious Member Posts: 372

    I do agree with you, but when you decide to post your possibly divisive opinion in an online forum, people are going to say all manner of stuff. Is this surprising?

    Do not post stuff online if you cannot handle some people disagreeing with you or saying something you don't like. That is always going to happen.

    Every game has it's toxic side of the community. It's up to you whether to ignore it or give in to it, seems like you gave in to it after putting 4000 hard earned hours into the game. What finally did you in if I may ask?

    What online games have you played out of curiosity that you'd consider better? Personally I find Dbd to be very tame when it comes to the community. Of the games I've played that come to mind it's nothing compared to Overwatch, CoD, Starcraft, Minecraft, Soulsborne, Smash and Destiny just to name a few. Heck of all the big games I've played the one only that comes to mind that has a better community is Warframe.

    Yeah, you get your t-baggers and clickys as well as some end game chat messages that are normally in the heat of the moment but every game ever has things like that. Even posts like OP's normally come from a single bad match even though they just had 10 decent or okays ones before that.

    The community on the forums can be very fickle at times but I think that brings it some charm as you never know what you'll see here next. Most of the troll complaints will get shunned or made fun of though and new people are treated well as long as they aren't here to just complain. There's almost no gate-keeping and even complaints about bad players are more akin to the system itself not putting you with other players your skill level.

    Of course this is all from my own personal experience and I have no doubt some people have had bad experiences but compared to other big game communities, I find all the toxicity here and in-game very tame.

  • SlothGirlySlothGirly Member Posts: 1,146

    I mean, are you really letting the toxicity get to you? you can just disable messages or if they're t-bagging and flashlight clicking and all about to escape, that's just a reason to keep playing and improve.

    Personally I see toxic messages as super funny, cuz it shows how low of a person they are, going through such lengths to get some attention. When I get t-bagged, I just suck it up and move on. More often then not I get t-bagged when I have been playing poorly, so I don't mind. Alternatively they t-bag when they think they're insane and proceed to go down in 3 seconds and DC, which I think is peak comedy.

    I know right. It's not like it's any more toxic today than 4000 hours ago.

  • Squirrel_ThiccSquirrel_Thicc Member Posts: 2,678

    Oh no! Someone left the game!!! The anarchy!

  • Xavier22Xavier22 Member Posts: 160

    Idk about this chief the game is pretty toxic if you ask me. I can franky care less but some people do get hurt by it. Then again people have different definitions of toxic so idk. I personally don't care about the toxicity because ik usually the people that are toxic really aren't that good lmao.

  • SmesonSmeson Member Posts: 43

    Computergames are a place where every regular loser can get an edge on someone else, and some of them tend to use that edge in a very bad way, not knowing they make themself look weak. Pity them.

  • TimeOutTimmyTimeOutTimmy Member Posts: 135

    So people need to bottle their emotions, because it is perceived as a weakness? You don't know other people's life experiences, so you don't have a right to tell them to toughen up.

    If you wouldn't tell your Mom or sister to toughen up in a similar situation, don't say it to a random stranger.
