     I didn't bother me *that* bad,  this thread is more me waking up ... that Gw2 will infact have those kinds. I hadn't really thought of it prior to the event ... I was pleased with the community. I think once you've saved someone from the downed state ... you think, theres no way that guy's going to go E-Douche on me.

    Game just feels different, I hope the community polices because of this.


     After reading your original post and a few other comments you have written I feel you are far more mature than the idiot flamming you so if you like GW2 then why allow idiots to spoil what you enjoy. You don't need telling what you have to do but imo I have come accross many people like this in my 12 years of gaming and like a poster above said just do not reply to these idiots and that makes them RAGE!! even more and that makes me (EVIL smile) knowing that some idiot is stressing over nothing and will probably be dead in the next few years of a heart attack.

    So don't be worrying about F2P model as this can also happen in sub games too, just shrug off any preconseptions you have on the community and once you've played the game for a few weeks this will just be a bad memory...

    These people are everywhere now.  They repeat the same nonsense over and over again.  Usually with increased volume for mic'd games and with more !s for text.  They do it just to try to push your buttons or entice you into an arguement.  They think if they can induce some anger in you enough to respond that they somehow won something.  These people should be sterilized.

    I've played some mw3 in the last few days.  Every match two of these idiots will go at it spouting a repetition of the same insult at each other until it finally devolves into a continuous monotone sound to drown out the other person.  I like to imagine the sound is them choking on their own microphone. 

    Sadly, it's not just a gaming thing anymore.  These people act like this in normal life as well.  At this point, I welcome the zombie apocalypse.  It would be an upgrade in social etiquette.

    or you could grow a pair! Reporting someone for calling you names on the internet is redundant and slightly childish.

    Being trolled in chat is childish.

    Reporting the troll is childish.

    So apparently maturity in this generation is only measured by how much you can be insulted on the internet without reporting any of the people doing so?

    The only thing childish here is your thoughts on the subject. 

    Sorry but i don't get upset when someone i don't know calls me names in a video game, maybe you are just too sensitive.

    The point is not anyone's sensitivity. I ignore most negativity that comes my way. I'm just saying that whether or not you get upset from it, your opinion is still the most childish part of this whole thing. You shouldn't attempt to set the bar of maturity when you don't understand the concept.

    I think the guy is either trolling, foreign ("foreign" in this case meaning not from North America or Europe), actually 12, or some combination of the three. The way he types really seems like he learned English from playing MapleStory or something rather than in school or from actual socializing.

    I ran into my own group of dense players in sPvP. I was the only one on my team capping points (which proved futile), and everyone else was fighting at the spawn. When we lost, one guy on my team started bitching and name-calling about "spawn camping". When I told him that name-calling just makes him look like a bad player, people on the other team thought I was calling them bad and started calling me names. The entire thing erupted into a free-for-all flame war until the servers went down.

    They are everyone man, real life and online.  Douchebags are douchebags whether online or not, it's worse online obviously.

    I am actually wondering how arenanet is going to handle this.  Banning people means they need to spend another $50 to get a new copy of the game, in the end they will learn to behave. No reason not to ban people that disbehave, as there is no monthly fee keeping Anet from banning retards.


    Do you believe that perma bans are that common to make the case or think that people will buy a new copy because of 3 or 7 day ban...?

    When you don't rely  on subscription revenues you have  much less incentive to ignore your terms and conditions.

    OP you get idiots in all walks of life, incomprehensible Neanderthals are pretty low on the scale of irritant. I get far more upset by people that screw up pugs that can be an hour or two of your life wasted. GW 2 has mechanisms that render someof my pet peeves moot.

    Every community has its bad players, but I do agree that the B2P/F2P communities usually have a higher ratio of them.

    Games that focus on PvP, especially eSport brand PvP, are usually even worse.

    Oh please... I've already engaged WoW-fanboy-trolls in ZONECHAT during the FIRST BWE.

    With great games come great trolls. (And really, anything that flashes brightly on a big screen attracts a portion of your average kiddies...)

    I actually enjoy ragefits from others in pvp. I just answer short and calm and they rage even more. Kinda fun sometimes.

    Some people are just idiots.  Lets pray he acts like this all the time so he can be ostracised from teams and guilds.

    Since when is Tuesday a direction?

    seen the LARGEST pile of crap in the P2P games everywhere. Elitest Jerks, morons like what the OP was showing us in PVP. Trust me, only a small number of P2P will be converting and that's a good thing. Keep them screamers away from my game GW2!
