Players to Avoid
« on: May 18, 2018, 11:50:24 am »
Well, since I just had a soul crushing match which challenged my enjoyment of the game, I think it's time to set up a thread to make the worst among us famous!



DxCreaper, Constantly rammed terrain and did not engage in battle. Refused to listen.

This isn't a wise thread to start.

I've been warned upon joining certain ships that "so-and-so is just a troll" and all it amounted to was the previous player refusing to help them understand the game in a productive manner. I understand what you're trying to go for, but making things public like this just encourages grudges and misunderstandings.

I myself have overreacted or behaved rudely to others in the past because of stressful circumstances, and I've also certainly flown or performed poorly because I was having a bad day or was simply facing a daunting challenge. I would hate it if someone shared those events as representative of my entire personality or competence. There's a few players that I really regret pissing off (often in some idiotic minuscule way) because they can't fucking let it go and insist on chiding myself and others about it when it's completely irrelevant. Bringing it to the forums is begging for conflict that this game does not need.

Again, I get the desire to warn people about players that may not pull their weight or are legitimate trolls, but it's much more productive to keep it to the lobby where the events are actually unfolding, especially in the cases where the player is just learning the game and a positive outlook can reach them better than any negativity could.


EDIT: Now, I did just log in and holy crap DxCreaper is mic spamming and saying "I don't care" all over the place. You ARE right. Once the game starts I may be in for a new breed of pain.

As long as this topic is handled with the utmost care and focuses on ONLY legitimate trolls I think it's okay. It's just treacherous territory.

Muse can't allow us to point out toxic players by name on their forum as it sets a bad precedent. If we were able to setup a conversation on a non muse affiliated site to discuss so and so, Muse wouldn't be able to stop us. I would love to rant about some very unproductive crew members I have had in the past.
