First, of course, thanks for your honest opinion.
- People insulting in chat for a game.
- Players have nasty behaviours.
- People complaining about the right behaviour.
- Pepole losing time on purpose.
- People minding their own business and doing other stuff white playing.
So in one sentence: Players behaving like idiots.
I can count on examples all day long, still the fact is that I never encountered such a throng of unpolite and disrespectufl players in an online game.
This is astonishing. According to all the reports in the games media, player toxicity is a mayor or the mayor problem of competitive online games. Players insult *teammates* in games like Overwatch. In other words: Players behaving like idiots seems to be the norm, not the exception.
And since I don't think that Dominion is somewhat a magnet for trolls, I have to think that this community isn't handled properly by its runners, whoever they are.
The big question is how frequent this is. I remember roughly a year ago when lots of players reported abusive behaviour, mostly with slow-players. This died down after a while, so I *assumed* that the scope of the problem has decreased.
Too bad, because people PAY for this and they get a really bad service IMHO.
Hope that more people complain and something starts moving because this is actually unbearable, the forum is literally FILLED with complaints and nothing happens.
Can you point out a few from last month? I visit the forums daily and of course I see complaints, but they happen at a rate of say 1 per day. Since forum activity is down, it may look like much, but in absolute numbers it is small.
One last comment, about something you wrote very near the start:
Which is frustrating when one just wants justice dealt.
This seems to be a common attitude: Somebody did something bad to me, so I want somebody else to deal out justice.
I understand it and certainly I feel and felt that way on many occasions. But the philosophy behind what is done in this game is that the impact on the player experience for the 'nice and friendly' players should be minimized. You blacklist the person that did something you did not like, and move on. Players that get excessivly blacklisted will be looked at.
Of course, it may be that the problems got out of hand and more drastic measures should be taken. But I don't see evidence that this is true.
Again, thanks for your posting!
