This game needs voice chat so I can do this again for Mordhau:

You are an imbecile if you think that throwing around racial slurs and insults at strangers over the internet is 'trash talk'.

Now nobody go using any of them super duper bad words now ya hear? Make sure to use only approved insults.

I'm sorry that your childhood was a mess but don't you think it would be adequate to try and break the cycle?

Ah yes, I'm a huge advocate for social change via video games. Bro listen to yourself. This is some next level cringe.

Never before has so much been said, and meant so little. I know it is practically a cliche to say you missed the point, but you genuinely have not even begun to understand what is being said to you.

I find this statement ironic.

Firstly, not having an allied team such as in FFA and competitive duels does not mean you are not cooperating with others.

But it doesn't mean you are, this is a failure to acknowledge that people can interpret things differently than you do.

The point of sportsmanship is be respectful and considerate even to your opponents rather than to demonise them and berate them, because they are not your literal enemies, but merely opponents in the game you have mutually agreed to play.

The point of sportsmanship is to show respect to the sport. Mordhau is not a sport to most. Also trash talk is extremely common in both amateur and professional sports, that point still stands. Many athletes would seem to have interpretations of sportsmanship contrary to yours. Once again, a failure to acknowledge that people can view things differently than you.

Also on the topic of sportsmanship, ancient boxers often showed much respect for one another before a bout, however they would have no problem boxing to the death if needed. Killing a person doesn't seem very "respectful and considerate". Come to think of it, getting run over by a linebacker isn't very "considerate" either. Hey at least he didn't call me names right? Dude have you ever played sports at all? They're one of the least considerate ways to spend your time.

Secondly, a game allowing for many ways to be played and enjoyed does not justify having fun by harassing others. There are rules in place. And I know that on the playground you hear children call each other names, but when I was referring to sportsmanship, I more so meant the Olympics, where people do not call each other racial slurs just because they are having fun in their own way.

Mordhau is at the same level of scrutiny/professionalism as the olympics now? Well I feel honored.

Thirdly, your assumption that someone would only hold this position because they get offended over words

What was that?

I know, right? What an autist, expecting people be punished for their antisocial behaviour, which also infringes the rules, and expecting the obligation to fall on such people to behave decently rather than on innocent people to constantly mute others or hide the entirety of the chat.

Oh yea, hypocrisy.

I don't know what growing up you perceive Esturias needs to do, but your use of reaction images outside of an imageboard, and in lieu of arguments, makes you seem very mentally underdeveloped.

The statements I replied to with reaction images were logically untenable. If you think otherwise I would suggest re-reading them. The reaction images were accurate in that your response was extremely embarrassing as it showed an extremely warped, naive, and contextually inaccurate perception of games. You subsequent reply only furthers my point.

Online games are a collaborative activity, the same way sports are. In sports there is a quality called sportsmanship, which prevents players from being antisocial toward one another, and casually throwing out slurs toward the opposing team, or worse, their own team.

The argument in question has nothing to do with the competitive scene as it is fairly stringent already.

Online games are a collaborative activity, the same way sports are. In sports there is a quality called sportsmanship, which prevents players from being antisocial toward one another, and casually throwing out slurs toward the opposing team, or worse, their own team. There is nothing defensible about being inconsiderate and rude toward other human beings when you have chosen to engage in a group activity, even if you are separated by a computer.

This is untenable for at least three reasons:

First: What is FFA for 500?
Second: Your over-idealized view of sports shows that you must not have played them that much. I seem to remember a lot of trash talk and extremely unkind things being said. Honestly far worse than anything I've seen on Mordhau. So please, miss me with that high ground angle.
Third: The game is inherently not a "group activity" for everyone. You again fail to apply your ideas at any scope larger than yourself. People can elect to play in any way they wish. I happen to know a great many who play solely to be at the top of the leaderboard with little regard for anybody else, and who am I to judge. Some people love to spark a negative reaction in other people. Is it wrong? Sure, but once again it is not my place to judge. Everyone's definition of fun varies.

Don't get mad over words on a screen. If you find this happening to yourself, rethink your definition of the word "adult".

I'm sorry people don't talk the way you want them to.

This happened all the time in Chiv, I should know, my friends and I used to do this a lot. This works in absolutely any game with a votekick feature, and is hilarious. I'm happy some folks finally brought back the tradition. Live by the RDM, die by the RDM.

A mute function is a quick help against spammers and similar kinds of people, but it is and will always be nothing but a bad compromise. On the long run it doesn't help to reduce the toxicity at all.
Just think about it: Why should the normal people have to mute the toxic ones while the toxic people can keep spreading the toxicity?

That's the most stupid and ignorant argument you can use in this context.

Ironic given how your reply was both stupid and ignorant.

Neither a mute function nor a thick skin does stop people to be toxic, so no idea how that is supposed to be a solution for the problem.

A mute function stops you from seeing people say insulting things, that appears to solve the problem of communications abuse. Trolls feed off of attention, stop giving them the reaction they want and they will go away.

toxic

I love how whenever that word is used it's always a case of projection.

There needs to be implemented a report feature and the votekick feature needs a solid tweak. People write racist and sexist messages without consequense all the time. It doesn't really bother me all that much, but its a matter that needs dealing with.

There's a mute feature. Also this is the internet, people are going to say bad things, nobody cares. A report system would be useless. Somebody on the internet shouldn't be able to make you that mad. Get thicker skin, ignore/mute people who say crap you don't like, and find a server where the community is more your speed.

Replace the current spear alt. Make it so that you just hold it in one hand and its a bit slower and shorter ranged than 2h. Current spear alt is just better in almost every way to default. Plus I want hoplites. Short spear doesnt count.
