I was playing a a ground PVE mission the other night and when it first started I hit the wrong key. Instead of using my frosted boots, I ended up activating my party popper. Within seconds there were nasty, vulgar language directed at me. That is totally unacceptable.
I have also seen people acting like they are in charge of the mission while using the public queque.
After seeing how people react to a video game, it actually makes me want to run around the ground PVE missions spreading balloons or blowing up Cubes early just because.
I don't AFK or freeload but I am getting really tired of people's nasty language.
Ya, people snap at you way to quickly. I sometimes hit my fireworks during an intense firefight in space and that can result in some colorful remarks at me. I just don't see the point of getting upset if someone fires off a party popper or fireworks, if say they are still doing what they are suppose to.
I remember when this game first came out and everyone was still in open parties and I would be entering a patrol and someone else would come in, trigger all the mobs so it became impossible for a player under level 10 to complete and then split, I'll admit I cursed them out and then got a 24 hour ban.
I have a friend in game, who shall remain nameless, who gives his BOFFs the fire extinguisher or a party popper (I think he did it originally to save bank space), but rather than the BOFF doing something like revive you it would stand over you and blow smoke or bubbles (yes, he is trolling).

LTS, here since...when did this game launch again?
Some people see a simple mistake and automatically lable the person either a troll or a noob.
Heck... even after they changed the Scimitar AI script where they cloak at will instead of when someone gets within 5km, people still yell at others about the "5k rule" which is now pointless.
People should learn that this is a game. Mistakes happen and things change. People who expect PERFECTION in every run... really need to loosen up.
The people going off don't have a GPU that's powerful enough to properly show all the particles with great FPS... Their PC's might be slowing down as a result of the particles.
However, I never did that even when I had a GT 520 (good card, but not powerful enough for particles going off all the time like in a firefight in space or fireworks and such. The killer was the plasma vents).

I have to wonder how serious someone is that uses 2 of their 4 slots to equip frosted boots and party poppers in an STF.
