How TOXIC is our community? (Poll)

NMCKENMCKE Member Posts: 8,050
Recently, I been hearing a lot of people say our community is very TOXIC. While I agree there are some fog travelers who can be quite immature, I can't say I agree with the exaggeration that are community is the most TOXIC community.

Please tell me what you think in this poll:
https://strawpoll.com/w74gga1a

Additionally, tell me your reasoning on why you picked a certain number! Perhaps the majority of fog travelers don't know what the true meaning of TOXIC is or maybe some things seem TOXIC but aren't actually TOXIC.

Discuss. :)

    I gave it a 3 because it's not that bad tbh. People call toxic to everything, almost for just playing the game.

    Gave it a 8 because the community doesn't seem to grasp what exactly is toxic. Doing generators? "Toxic gen rushers" Trying to secure your kill? "Toxic trash camper" You're really good at killer? "You have wall hacks! Enjoy your ban toxic killer."

    There are more things I'd like to say but I think you get the point. Most actions in this game are mistaken as being TOXIC which leads to more toxicity. Consequently, is why I gave this community an 8.

    Worst so far.

    I never thought that’d be the case after playing a MOBA.

    It's honestly not too bad. I gave it a 7 since it can be extreme at times, but the times where I've had slurs and insults thrown my way are few and far between.

    Hands down the most toxic community I've ever seen. The only game where I have to make my steam profile private and change my username constantly.

    Wow...

    I chose a 6. It's not that the entire community is toxic, it's more that there's a group of people that are considerably louder and more acidic than a lot of communities. They start and fan fires, which pull others into the salty mess.prong those people aside, I'd say the community is maybe a 3 ^^

    ### christ, finally someone that say that he is doing a poll is actually using a tool like strawpool instead of asking people to answer 1 or 2 in the comment

    It's a ######### christmas miracle

    Tbh i don't understand why there's no poll option when creating a discussion. I've suggested it twice, one in Wishlist and the other one in Forum Feedback.

    Ever try to have a conversation here on the forums? Some people are nice and willing to have a constructive discussion. Most just repeat the same thing they heard elsewhere while having a condescending attitude, like how dare you disagree with them. 

    Take that back you (Insert character main here)! You're just a salty try hard, Git Gud mate! (Insert Photoshop DBD meme here)!

    There's a lot of suggestions on how to improve their forum but I'm convinced they're leaving it as is for now since it seemed like they stopped working on the forum abruptly during the time they were asking for feedback.

    Like this thread is still getting updated yet I see a lot of unfinished stuff listed.

    I'd honestly like to know the progress on some of that stuff.

    This one would be awesome: "Ability to send a private message to another member."

    Worse is that it is actually already implemented, but only moderator can use it, I got an mp from Peanit when I did a suggestion about the chinesse spam bot on one of the spam thread.

    I thought that was available at the start but they disabled it for users because spam. I said this about ratings but ratings / DM's should be disabled until you get 50 post for example and that would detour spam. Although one of the mods said that wasn't currently possible iirc.

    Like yeah it would suck not having EVERYTHING at the start but it would prevent someone from just registering and flooding the forums with nonsense without a little effort.

    I'll quit posting about this though sorry for derail @Nickenzie

    On a scale from 1 to 10? Definitely 11......

  • ReneAenslandReneAensland Member Posts: 838

    Half and half.
    From the player base to the gamers.
    Half. We might only recognise the toxicity, never the genuine.

  • WINTERSWINTERS Member Posts: 127
    I chose 8. I play on console and you would think that just because we don't have an end-game chat that people wouldn't take the time to send messages but yeah... They do. I've been called the C word, the b word all because I play killer. I was spammed messages just because I killed someone. Someone added me as a friend then proceeded to use the personal message option to curse me out. I had to block my messages and friend requests because of the constant angry messages. Not the in-game BM they do, but after the game or after they die is when the problem starts. I even got cursed out when I was playing survivor. I almost gave up the game. Which is why my forum username is not the same as my ps name.

    It’s pretty bad maaaaaaaaaan

    I gave it a 6.

    It is an online multiplayer game so it automatically is inherently infected with toxicity. I've played many other online multiplayer games and, to be honest, DBD has its massively toxic players but all-in-all it's by far one of the better in that regard.

    Just as quick examples of other games:

    I'd give League of Legends a 9, maybe a 10, as it is easily one of the most toxic communities ever. SMITE is also pretty bad.

    WOW is a 5. The community is tight and many are friendly but when it comes to joining groups you better be built exactly how they want you to be or GTFO.

    I'd give FFXIV a 2, maybe even a 1, as it is by and large the best online community I've ever been a part of. Most everyone is nice and willing to help each other out.

  • ReneAenslandReneAensland Member Posts: 838

    I was about to compare the toxicity here to Call of Duty but in Call of Duty you can just turn the Mic on instead of messaging.
    Still, 5/10.

  • PhantomMask20763PhantomMask20763 Member Posts: 5,176
    7 just because sometimes people are so dramatic about losing crazy!!! Sending death threats and racial slurs, yeah that's the main reason. However there are some pretty cool people in our community and they're always awesome to talk to

    Meh. Depends what toxic is because I myself have mistaken a supposed play as toxic before but I retract my opinion from that. However is t-bagging toxic or DCing? camping and tunneling? It’s hard to really even talk about these because survivor mains will say their side and killers will say their side and they tend to butt heads instead so I guess it is toxic In that sense. And even if you t-bag you should accept the consequences of the killer being toxic and vice verse of the killer is just camping then gen rush and t-bag him on the way out it’s simple. Personally I love it. It brightens my day seeing t-baggers because I love having the opportunity to crush their egos it’s hilarious. I’ve had a poor lad in the same match t bag me in the beginning to walking to a hook waiting for me to hook him for my 4K. I don’t even “tunnel” or “camp” when they t-bag me I just smile, get excited and focus and I just teach them a lesson lol. Does that make me toxic? Idek 
    Edit: I’d say 5? It’s half-half because I mean I play console, no end game chat and I’ve had my messages set to friends only for a long time so I don’t usually get anyone messaging me after unless they really are angry and go out of there way to add me which I just block them lol. So idk

    I agree as these were similar reasons of how I rated DbD. Especially LoL where you can be stuck in a 30-60 min. match and 2-3 people are arguing in chat. Feels like a waste of time especially when players don't want to leave b/c they don't want to get timed out or lose rank. Not sure if it's different with today's LoL, but that's what I remembered in the past playing mostly for rank.

    I haven't played in nearly 2 years (since Camille came out) but I assume it is the same if the LoL Forums are any indication.
