Mordhau

The Discord is a Cesspool

13 80

I've been trying to stay in-the know on this game's progress for a while, so I occasionally browse the forums and the Discord.

But the more and more I look, the Discord is a haven of identity politics and /pol/ memes.

The off-topic shit doesn't bother me that much, but when you search the N word on the discord and see 13 pages of results, you know something's gone wrong.

Those people who do this shit is gonna see this post as whiny, but it just makes me want to leave the discord when, at night especially, it devolves into posts like this:

And obvious trolls:

But it seems that these people never get punished, and it's always the same people every time.

I know an automod has been added, and that's a good step, but i'm sure more can be done to make the discord less of a hellscape.

Community is full of /pol/ edgelord kids, I don't know what the fuck Mordhau has that atracts so many of these attention seeking kids.

The hilarious part is that they think the shit they say is very cool and inteligent, lamoe

Somehow the developers think the Discord is the ideal place for announcements, even though the vast majority of the general channel is pure spam. As for moderation I do sympathise with them; their hands are tied because if they started banning such behaviour then the Mordhau community will be reduced to four people.

Idk, maybe it has something to do with the medieval setting. PvP focused gaming communities are not renown for their tolerance and hospitality but I agree it is a bit more than usual in this community.

Best you can hope for is super hyped mordhau release will attract a bunch of "normies" and gentrify the current community. Lmao.

I also imagine more strict moderation will be enforced by the time release rolls around.

The way these dumb motherfuckers are militant about their retarded world view, they will scare the "normies" and give a great reputation to Triternion and this game's community in the process.

I have a feeling/hope that right before release the devs will cleanse both the forums and discord of the autists everyone knows who they are.. .

How hard is it to copy/paste from one forum to the other? Are they being lazy or stupid?

It's the setting of the game, same reason you'll see those Wehrmacht LARPers with Rommel avatars (we wuz 0-war-crimes n shiet, swearsies!) when you play WW2 Steam games or those odd clans with military ranks in Day of Defeat/Battlefield (technically not stolen valor).

Watch out dude before you know it you're accused of advocating genocide lmao

Also I agree with OP, this community is NOT ready for the mainstream crowd. It's only a matter of time before some journalist "exposes" this community and blames it's developers.
