why get offended by what some random guy types on the internet? pathetic
If you're playing a game to spam edgy insults, you shouldnt be playing the game. Why should 90 people have to listen to you have a mental breakdown because you cant handle being shot by archers?And also ofc they prefer to keep being called "bad words" and keep crying about it instead of just muting the "offender".
And when they want them banned that's just effing hypocrisy. What's really worse, saying a "bad word" or literally preventing someone from having fun, not allowing them to play a game, possibly their favorite one?
If seeing FIFA codes of Niger, and Germany put together bothers you so much, that you literally stop playing the game, it seems like you are indeed subconsciously crying, because otherwise, you would have simply ignored that, because it doesn't affect your gameplay IN THE SLIGHTEST.Nobody starts crying if theyre called naughty words on the internet. They get sick of it and decide theres better things to do than play a game and have some 12 year old yelling slurs at them for 4 hours a day while theyre trying to relax, so they just leave the community instead.
If I go on a server, and I see 5 people typing the n word before I even pick my class, why the hell would I want to play there...
*smart defenceThe whole sensitive **** and "just get a thicker skin" is a stupid defence for people to act like assholes.
Do you realize that it's not the only reason they play the game? It probably isn't even one of the reasons.If you're playing a game to spam edgy insults, you shouldnt be playing the game.
People already mentioned in this thread the idea of simply ignoring, or even muting these people. So no, they don't have to.Why should 90 people have to listen to you have a mental breakdown
And how about people who are mad at others saying "bad words" chill out?if you can't do just that only one rule because you got angry after being killed and you have to say the n word then bruh can you just chill out
Sounds like they had to have some reason for that, and it isn't something everyone could be a victim of.And besides there's people that literally target someone and go beyond saying "bad words" like vote kicking, harrasing them outside the game, ddos
If it's just saying bad word, that doesn't count as preventing someone from having fun lol, because of reasons I already mentioned.like you say, if those players are actively preventing those players from having fun, and actively trying to make the games worse for them, then why they should be allowed to play the game too?
That's just obsessive harassment and intrusive. Let's make a distinction between harmless repartee in-between matches and actively attempting to choke the fun out of gameplay for everyone. There is a very clear line from mildly annoying to undermining gameplay performance, and you're pushing its boundaries when you argue for strict regulation on what words can or cannot be said, context or intention be damned. This is more a serious issue in competitive games, where muting voice chat puts you at a severe disadvantage, or two people arguing loudly over VC makes communication impossible, but unless some **** is about spamming in team chat so you can't strategize with teammates, there's no such impact chat will have.And besides there's people that literally target someone and go beyond saying "bad words" like vote kicking, harrasing them outside the game, ddos like it happened a thousand times in Warband, again, like you say, if those players are actively preventing those players from having fun, and actively trying to make the games worse for them, then why they should be allowed to play the game too?
If that's supposed to be an argument for chat censorship, it's akin to declaring martial law in response to a loony threatening to burn himself.Warband-related IRL murder
Thankfully that nevers happens so you must be playing a lot of this.If I go on a server, and I see 5 people typing the n word before I even pick my class, why the hell would I want to play there...
But they don't have to. Somebody tell him how to mute and vote to kick people.Why should 90 people have to listen to you have a mental breakdown because you cant handle being shot by archers?
Are you saying that MP Warband was a murderer tutorial? It begins gently with "ur mom", advances to racist stuff, doxxing, then bang, people kill each other over drugs. MP toxicity is a gateway to a life of crime.I thought it's the thing dude was earlier talking about. Or at least that it has to do something with warband. Nope. Just a murder, but murderers happened to play warband ?
I chose the example of a word most adults agree is not acceptable to use, I could've used "turkr**ch" which ive seen get spammed constantly instead.Thankfully that nevers happens so you must be playing a lot of this.
But they don't have to. Somebody tell him how to mute and vote to kick people.
No, it doesn't. That's not even close to your hypothetical scenario (since you used "if"). And if all that the three people are doing is be annoying, why don't you mute the lot of them.I chose the example of a word most adults agree is not acceptable to use, I could've used "turkr**ch" which ive seen get spammed constantly instead.
Oh yeah this happened a not long ago, from my chat.
Guess it just doesnt happens huh.
This isn't real life, they can't get into my face or in any way impact my daily life and leave me with little option than to react. It's as senseless to let some brainlet get under your skin with mere provocations through text as it is to be said brainlet.Just...really shouldnt have to tell adults how to behave in public.
Go through the effort of... muting people with a few clicks? And also the rules of basic human interaction and etiquette are the same thing.Youre asking the people that are following the rules of basic human interraction and etiquette to go through effort and make the game less interesting
So are you presuming what I want or do you not know? Linguistic hiccups aside..because you want people to be free to spam homophobic, racist or sexist slurs at will. I dont see why.
Why? Isn't that also a breach of etiquette?Im not taking about writing ez after winning a game, as juvenile as that is. Or saying "**** archers" etc.
With the usual frequency that a democratic system works and works well. Unless you're about to tell me you stand for autocracy, you should be fine with it.Also kickvotes on public servers? Somebody tell him how often that works.
Seen it happen couple of times on PW, though it was usually very much punished by admins of the servers if found out.Have there been any confirmed cases of people being harrassed in real life (such as killings, beatings or infliction of bodily harm) due to their activity in Warband MP? I have only heard about that one case MadVader linked above. Proof or it did not happen.
if you're the majority, humanity is more screwed up than I realised.He speaks for the majority, most of us ignore because we have brains but once in a while, someone gets fed up with it and speaks up and when that happens everyone who usually ignore should step forward. But they wont because they cba to get involved in borderline idiotic entanglements and its very much understandable. Its like punching a rock
Why? Isn't that also a breach of etiquette?
The problem is who gets to decide. There isn't a hippocratic oath for "server moderators" to hold them accountable and enforce a certain integrity. It's easy for socially functional and cognisant people to recognise ill intent, however due perhaps to ill intent (or social ineptitude) on their own end, people of authority can easily artificially push the bounds of restrictions to misconstrue actions of people they personally dislike. Human behaviour and the judgement thereof is a delicate matter worst left to one anonymous narcissist or the other. What slight difference it makes for you to be saved from the bother of going through a few clicks does not justify handing power so easily abused - and it IS abused. It makes more readily for an environment of hostility when biased mods / admins pounce on the earliest opportunity to get back at someone as soon the slightest profanity is uttered. And if I trusted the judgement of TW to enforce restraint in their moderators, I'd be more than alright with it, I have no more love for loud and unfunny retards than you, but from first-, second- and third-hand experience I know not to trust their judgement, especially not on this.
With the usual frequency that a democratic system works and works well. Unless you're about to tell me you stand for autocracy, you should be fine with it.
And do tell me more about the logic behind "turkroach" being a far greater insult than just "roach", please.
Why do you type so much to defend blatant racism in a video game? You write so many paragraps of nonsense. It is not abuse when racists get banned for saying racist stuff.
And if I trusted the judgement of TW to enforce restraint in their moderators, I'd be more than alright with it, I have no more love for loud and unfunny retards than you, but.. your reading comprehension is beneath contempt.
You seriously have no clue - and this is coming from a Schopenhauerian - how pitiable that makes your idea of "everyone" sound? You can't play the game just because some clowns spout bad words? Annoyance I can understand but you're not doing your already ill-founded arguments any favours with your hyperbole.It is far easier to ban a couple racist than to have everyone mute them so they can keep going.
Right back at you friendoPeople here are pathetic.
Right. Because obviously that's a foolhardy position to take in the current climate? Wouldn't they also some time ago condemn the condemning of racism, should that be what the public demands? They're neither ideologues nor intellectuals, it's a ****ing game development company. You think they give the slightest **** as to open an anthropology department to come to their own independent conclusion?Dying on the hill of free speech in a video game run by a private company that clearly condemns racism.
A chat full of prepubescent wannabe Top Gear presenters will be the least of his disappointments, trust me.A big streamer wants to showcase Bannerlord mp.
Again with the sensationalist isolation of racism above "toxic remarks"...He joins the siege server, the flagship of casual play. There he gets bombarded by racist and toxic remarks.
As if it wasn't already clear as day I wasn't talking to an adult brain...He then goes to the forum to complain, only to be greeted by you and your nonsense trying to make a scientific debate out of the question whether we should tolerate racism. Seems like a fun community to join.
That's bad and should be punished. Should go without saying, really.And then he gets bombarded by PW tryhards who are gatekeeping by pointing to doxxing that was going on back in the day.
