I had some silly girl griefing me last night because I attacked her, she started losing, another ship on my team turned up (cap n hold) and helpded finish her off. Gave the old "You need to team" ********. I told her where to go and to learn to teamwork. I told her I didn't NEED anything, just that I understood the value of teamwork.

She challenged me 1v1, my intrepid vs her galaxy, with one of her friends in an escort watching (for show I guess). I won. Enough said. She actually took her defeat graciously and admitted her error. Nice when that happens. I then killed the Escort 1v1. I could have gloated in her face, but hey, that would have just been bad sportsmanship...

Yay, bad attitude is a classic of PvP gaming, and over the internet in general. I guess it's just that the fact of having the "shield" of a screen and a keyboard and the inherent impossibility of being met by a solid haymaker to the jaw just brings out many people's true nature.

It comes with the game...I honestly never look at the zone chat in PvP. I try to play fair and behave accordingly - it's just MY inner nature, and I know it doesn't go well with the thing.

In one of my last games, I was "mocked" by some idiot flying a cruiser who kept coming after me. Each time he's go down to like 15% hull and then turn on RSP, run away and heal. At the end of the game, he went on with a "you can't kill me, sucka!".
I still don't know if he realized that my lowly Luna class had forced his mighty Excelsior refit into retreat over and over again.

Most of these people are just plain idiots who, for a reason or the other, just think it's their right to be AHs online since they can't be in real life, otherwise they'd be beaten up, sued and jailed, not necessarily in that order.

This behavior takes different forms depending on the game: in STO, all you can do really is to be abusive over the chat. In other games, they become plain griefers by say killing allies or pushing other cars off the road.

i Dont talk rubbish in pvp zones, keep it civil, say gg at the end of the game and then leave

But if some one is intentionally passing crude remarks or condescending remarks at me I will go after them and challenge them.

The problem is this is unavoidable. There are gloats out there who think just because they won one pvp they are better than you. If i win i say gg and walk away if I loose i say gg and walk away. Simple as that, played 1000s of pvp games to even bother with passing crude remarks or even care for them.

also, ganking someone who is busy typing in zone chat is sure to get that person even MORE off of his/her game, leading to more beautiful explosions.We are all on voice chat, so we dont even read the zone chat, except to see who Mikey's target is.& belive it or not, Mikey is actually a very polite, knowledgeable player with a wicked sense of humor. he is nothing like his game chat persona.
anyway, try not to let the trash talk get to you, because that may be the entire reason for it in the first place.
to get you off of your game.
It's the quiet ones you have to look out for.....always the quiet ones.

Had some poor Fed say in zone wow it took 6 of you to kill me. Then followed up by saying Klingons without a carrier= lose. Funny thing is we apparently had 1 carrier amongst the 10 of us and we won. :p

No, not Mikey. He wouldn't talk trash. He's just sensitive and likes to express himself with some very emotional haiku's during combat.
