Poison in the Empire Earth Community

Post by AtomicOne »

Why is there so much poison in the Empire Earth community?

Why are people so mean to each other? I'm sick of seeing the word "faggot" and "nigger" in the chat of the lobby and games. I'm sick of playing and having everyone blame everyone else for their problems. If we want this community to flourish, we need to create a more supportive and nurturing community. We haven't had more than 100 people online at once. That means we are a small community.

We will completely alienate new players. We will alienate old players who grew up and realized it's not right to call people offensive terms anymore. Let's make an active effort to be more friendly to people. The gloating is fine a lot of the time, but calling the other 7 players noobs is just ridiculous. Just have some fun. We are all trying to have friends here and play a game we dearly love.

Let's do this! Let's make Empire Earth awesome!

We had this argue ages ago already (especially the argue between me and phoenix: Let newcomers play and balance the teams vs kick noobs) but nothing helps. The new hosting system makes it at least easier for many new players to start games without beeing dependend from pre I mean pro players.
I am open to any proposal referring to this.

in liga and other setts when we can we will let anyone play its mostly pre games what wont allow new comers to play thats because the games take longer than others so i see where they are coming from abit. I also told them to ask to join not just open it up if they are going to kick and ban people because that discourages new players. Problem is with flaming and that its best just to mute the player at the end of the day we cant make changes to a players habit just like league of legends so many flamers on there but you have to just ignore it.

This is not just a noob thing. Fag is a really offensive term, so i nigger. I want to stop seeing this stuff. Not just because it's offensive to me, but because everyone in here is just generally being a bad person who says that kind of stuff. This is not censorship issue either, it's community and being a family.

You cannot make another post so soon after your last.

Generally I always thought the AoC community somewhat vile (TBH, but it wasn't anything I couldn't handle)... It seemed that when the official servers shutdown the EE/AoC community kind of came together and unfortunately some of that "poison" you speak of may have made its way over to everyone else

AoC was totally vile back in the day, but I didn't get it back then because I was young, immature, and just as vile. I didn't care about the community and I wouldn't be afraid to call anyone a faggot or anything. Now that I'm not 14, and I get how the world works, I have a conscience and I know how to behave around other people.

Well, welcome to the internet. You've always needed a thick skin in online communities. People trashtalk. They almost never mean what they actually say. The only way to try change things is a zero-tolerance policy (time mutes and bans). But in the end, our community is just too small to start such drastic measures. What is the problem about blocking people that insult you?

Atomicone... We cant do anything about things like that.. We cant stop people from saying those things.. if you dont want to see them just turn on your filter or simply ignore those people using those words.
Effort only fully releases its reward after a person refuses to quit.
