# 1 Lack of manners in mmos
04-12-2013, 11:56 AM
Although I've dabbled in a few mmos here and there, I have never been one to play them long term except sto and one of the only reasons I have stuck with this game for the past 3 years or so is mainly because its Star Trek. To me a mmo and other video games are recreation, a place to chill and relax and to put myself in another world for an hour or two.

Now I know games can be competitive, and I find that perfectly accepetable, but when you get some jerk that takes it a little too seriously it can really put you off. I'm talking about the one who is in an STF and gets all pissy because the team failed an optional, the one that contantly berates the other team member through team chat and then flies off to the corner of the map to report the team because he can't get his way, while leaving you and the rest of the team trying your hardest to stop those damn probes in Khitomer reaching the conduit.

I mean for god sakes it a freaking game, we were all noobs at one point. If you can't take into account that other people who play this game are all at different levels, (maybe they have a disability of whatever) you shoulden't be playing an mmo with OTHER PEOPLE. If you can't take it do a private match or not play online games at all, better still turn off your computer, calm down and get over it.

I've read the chat on DS9 once and they were talking about ww2...... So many walls of text there filled with racism and ignorance. I've avoided DS9 since then.

The worst experience I had was WoW. I first started the game and had someone follow me around telling me I suck. No reason or provocation. Just decided to give me a hard time. I had one guy wanting to PVP. He was level 10, I was 3 and he hounded me for like a good 20 minutes. I was like dude I just started playing for the first time. Then some werewolf chick hit on me. Actually, that wasn't so bad, but I was like, back to STO! They may be a little nutty, but overall pretty civil.

Welcome to the Internet!

Whenever you get a wide and diverse field of people together with anonymity and little trackable repercussions, It is almost guaranteed that you will run into a troll or an elitist. Simple statistics say that you can't run a game forever and NEVER run into a jerk, in the real or the digital world.

YES! this is just a game, this is voluntary, and is meant for recreational purposes. However some people come into this game and forget that and take out their nerd rage across the player base. This is a simple fact of the internet and sociology. Best thing to do about it is to follow rule 14 of the internet:


DON'T FEED THE TROLLS!


If someone is throwing up a *****-fest about the latest failed STF, whether or not you are still CURRENTLY in the STF, just ignore them. It's not worth your time nor wear on your keyboard to rebuke them. At most, just remind them that this is just a game... and The Borg won't take over the universe if you don't defeat them perfectly.

Quick answer? IGNORE PLAYER

If someone on the Internet is rude and out of control once, they will be again. There are no social repercussions for poor behavior in the Internet world of MMOs, forums, etc. If someone is an ill-mannered low life in real life they will be more so here and there is nothing any one of us can do to change them. The way to get them to change is ignoring them. Not every idea or opinion is valid or acceptable. By ignoring them they end up with limited play options and social interaction. They will either move on or conform.
Just say no to ARC

One doesn't have to be a 'lowlife' to be ill-mannered. Just sayin'.

What do you expect form a game where everyone needs on anything, and where everyone thinks they're Captain Kirk.

1st: this game is not competitive at all!
2st: if you failed the optional then your team and, i think, you too have to check your build. stfs are piece of cake like all the pve in this game and is not very pleasant to fail in it. i understand is not very nice to be in a team with players that are frustrated for losing the optional, but you can avoid that if you go with private matches! in this way you can fail with your friends/fleet.
you can find tutorials about stfs tactics and good builds for your ship on the forum. all you have to do is to research a little and not playing this game like a single player one.
3st: you speak about other players that they are going rampage and yet you came here on the forum to rampage about their rampage.

you can you can ignore people in wow right? you know you can change servers in wow right? you know that is the worst complain ever right? or you could log out a few minutes and then come back...
ps: in my opinion that was an awesome trolling )

If we all live in boxes that doesn't mean my box is the same color like yours

once in one of the first mmo games I ever played I was just wondering around and I was ready to log off, I didn't notice that someone had snuck up to attack me as I was logging off, a week later I log back on to get flamed for having made the person stand there for a whole week waiting for me to log back on so he could kill and rob my character, so I just told him to stop dating his hand and get a life, killed his character, told him he'd always be a loser then left.
Your going to run across a lot of people in any mmo game who are basicly a bunch of 40 year olds living in their parents basement with their fake spock ears and I heart Kirk t shirts who spend their week ends inflating their girlfriends to go out to the movies. That's the sort of people who have nothing better to do in a mmo game than be a sad, pathetic little troll. Best to just ignore them.
