    Great another one of these threads. Use the /ignore or /mute feature and move on, I don't know anyone who cares about your personal feelings on some troll in general chat.

    I've been experiencing the same thing. Most people are not-talking or just being trolls/asses. If there's anyone playing on Ascension Valley (NA) not being a total douchebag and want to group up or something, just give me a message! I'd like some nice and respectable people to talk to.

    There's always bad apples in every game you just have to weed them out. Join a good guild and turn off the Global channel then you don't have to worry about it... Keep blocking if you have too I know it sounds bad but you have unlimited block...

     

    While I agree this community is worse then alot of games its really Global chat that is the worst turn that off and your pretty much g2g. There is a couple idiots in Area but nothing like global chat it's basically "the barrens" of Tera.....

     

    I joined a good guild and am having fun for the moment who knows once I max out probably will mmo hop again thats my pattern....

    It's hard to do that to most of an entire MMO playerbase, especially when an MMO is supposed to have multiplayer interaction.

    TERA has a horrible community through and through.  I've known it for a while.  Not sure why anyone would defend people who say the kinds of things that get said in TERA chat.  Pathetic.

    of course they aren't going to see Pedophilia as a problem. sorry but any game designer who makes a "child-like" race "sexy" gets no money ever from me

    This is exactly why I quit playing. When you get people commenting on what they would like to do to their "child" character, it's time for me to move on.

    OP...people are doubting some of what you say, but I found chat to be as bad as you described. Obviously people posting here do not pay attention to the chat when they play. I wish I could ignore chat in mmo's, but I watch it often to look for people selling stuff or LFG.

    OP...Do like I did and find something else to play.

    Just my thoughts on the subject

    It's so stupid though to quit over something so trivial IGNORE it....

     

    I mean really people can't turn off the chat or block people I mean if you like the game. I just don't understand people quitting basically means (the haters, trollers, whatever you wanna call em) WIN.....

     

    This community is no worse then Wow or AOC...

    AOC has the worst people I have ever dealt with in my life.... This doesnt even compare.....

     It would be easy to ignore if its just a few people, but when you have to turn off an entire CHAT CHANNEL because of 100s of jackasses it makes the game what?

    What is the point of playing a god damn MMO when you end up with every single public chat channel turned off! May as well play a single player game.

    I picked this game back up when it went F2P, and the chat really is that bad.

    If it's not sexual comments or racial slurs, it's people bickering over nonsense.

    Every time I play, I have Area and Global chats turned off.

  • sxvssxvs massillon, OHPosts: 109Member

    this type of thing goes on all over the internet and in many games, stupid/inappropriate comments and such.

    has nothing to do with the elin, who aren't children.. they are some type of immortal fairy creatures in a fantasy world..

    these same people would most likely make ridiculous statements like that in any setting.

     

    i've had someone threaten my life in warcraft because i refused to duel him, we were both orcs... is the orc to blame for insane behavior.

    Exactly.  The game is FILLED with people saying these atrocities.  Gamers with respect for other people shouldn't play this game because of the community.  Because there is no official action against this kind of hate and intolerance, every time someone spends money on TERA they are supporting racism, pedophilia, sexism and hate.

    It just doesn't make sense to me but I guess thats just my opinion I mean on TR the only channel I have ever had to turn off was Global I've never had a problem with any other channel....

     

    I mean turning off one channel is gonna make or break the game for people?

    Edit:  Please don't ban me for this post just because I don't agree with the company.. Maybe it's because of the way I was raised  /shrug

    That's pretty awful. Being a free to play game though, I wouldn't expect much from it. F2P & B2P attract the worse kind of people, not saying everyone that plays them are bad, just that since they don't have to pay a sub fee they could care less about their actions, so the worse kind of people are attracted to those games.

    I had heard lots of bad stuff about Tera from friends that have tried it too, so I never bothered with it.

    Don't play if you don't want but don't try and say people supporting it are racists and pedo I mean really?

  • NBlitzNBlitz ZwollePosts: 1,904Member

    This is rich.

    Now a few "concerned" fellow internet dwellers are complaining about playing an MMO with every single public chat channel turned off.

    Someone remind me, which community was it again that voted, not so long ago, heavily against having a global chat channel?

    Yes, every game is not immune to its trolls. Build it, and they will come.

     It isnt just Global, its Area as well.

    Only thing remaining is LFG and Trade.

    While this may be OK with people who have a large Guild, one large enough they never have to communicate with anyone else...but for everyone else, mainly NEW PLAYERS COMING IN, all we see is pure trash, which BTW does not leave exactly a good impression.

    So, to you wonderful long time Tera players...why the effing hell would you defend the trash in your game when its just helping to push new players OUT? Seriously, people defend blindly and dont realize they hurt their game by doing so.

    Since you didn't understand, I'll say it a different way.

    The company and mods behind TERA are ok with racism, sexism and other hate speech because they choose not to deal with it.

    If a person supports that company with money, they are supporting the company's actions - so they support the continued racist and hate speech in chat.

    I didn't say people supporting it at racists and pedo, not sure why you thought that.

     

    I'm not sure how my stance against such demeaning talk in a game meant for fun makes me as bad as people spouting racism, but believe that if you want.

If someone just randomly messaged you and said he'd do that with your offspring, then that's another story. As annoying as chat trolls are, what's worse is the "shut up or I'm telling" crowd, as it is just an invitation for insults.

    how did you come to that conclusion? he could have been talking to someone else and would that have made it any less offensive?

    i have never even played tera before but joking about raping a 5 year old is absolutely unacceptable for in game mmo chat.

  • OtakunOtakun New Providence, PAPosts: 864Member
     I guess I was too busy actually playing the game to notice the pointless chat. Maybe if more people were actually playing the game instead of sitting around bothering with the chat then it wouldn't be such a big deal.

    It was like this way before it went F2P. besides the combat, the horrible community is the game's second most outsatanding feature.

    Yeah, who needs to communicate in a multiplayer game anyways!

     

    Also, people saying to use /ignore commands are missing the point.  It isn't that every new player logging in should leave all sorts of channels and /ignore people.  It is that TERA should actively fight against the kind of hate in chat channels.  It shouldn't be OK with racism and child rape. 

    If you just ignore people and leave channels, you're saying you're pretty much OK with child rape comments in the game so long as you don't have to see it.

    I just don't understand this viewpoint. Either you enjoy the companies game or you don't, paying them to play the game is not supporting racism or pedophilia lol.

    No company has the time or resources to deal with every troll in general chat, this is in every game, not just TERA.

    I'm guessing the people telling OP to not report it are just massive TERA fans, there's no other excuse.  I think the issue is more with the company's response than OP or even the idiots in global chat.  The problem is that this is a FTP game.  Banning accounts probably will not do much to stop these fools from playing.
