A sad day for the galaxy.By Marlowe Ethos - 2 days ago
I would love a law, that make games disclose it gamble mechanics.
I don't even pre-order games anymore more.
I had to cancel 6 games that I pre-order. Because it had loot boxes in them.
Yes, all mutiplayer should have a voice chat.
I remember my LoL days. I do love a toxic chat box. It like watching Jerry Springer. If it had a voice chat. Well I would still be playing that game.
In my CoD muitplayer days, whenever the games ends and lobby comes up. There would mass shit talking, screaming, music blasting, dogs barking, and babies crying.
It just pure entertainment.
In MMORPG days, well I mostly group up with my peeps in raidcall. But when I did do PuG. Most of the time I had a least 2 peep with me and the rest was random. So not that much toxic.
But in the GLFF channel.
I sometime just grab a Maddog and just read.
So yea. Haha.
In PlanetSide 2 , I love to just run people over in my battlebus. And yell in voice chat "OMG MY BRAKES NOT WORKING HELP"
I would a least get 15+ Friendly kills till I get TK. And everyone in my raidcall would just be laugh their ass off.
And the players in voice chat would call me toxic player.
And I replied " no, I'm just a troll"
Then they just get toxic about it. That shit is hilarious..
My fav mount in a MMO.
Anyone one the Battle Rams you get in the LoTRo.
- for the MMO Podcast.
In PlanetSide 2, I'm with my bro. And a base just got cap. So aleast 15 people are at vehicle terminal. And I'm on Flash(ATV) w/Fury( grenade launcher) and homie on backseat.
Then I scream in chat " INFILTRATOR" and just kill every at the vehicle terminal and get weapon lock.
Then I get TK. Players just get toxic in voice chat.
"Did you guys see the infiltrator" I say every time I do this. People just rage.
But my homie is just lmao then ask why do you keep doing that.
I say "I"ll stop doing it when you stop laughing at it".
The homie is my RL buddy I knew her since 3rd grade.
Infiltrator is a stealth class. But you can see it when it moves .
(Mailed a screenshot to you.)
On an unrelated subject: "white males" are statistically the most harassed demographic online, so there's no need to be too self-conscious.
