I’ve been noticing a rising level of toxicity on chat, in the forums, and even within guilds lately. I am not sure if it’s the guild nerfs that have left veteran players frustrated, angry, and with nothing to do (idle hands), the ongoing cheating suspicions, the sudden influx of newer players with entitlement issues, or something else/all of the above.
It feels like this game and its culture has taken a sharp downturn from when I first started playing just a few scant months ago. Times were that I would stand amazed at how helpful and respectful the community was. Now, it seems there’s an air of hostility that lingers and can’t be escaped. NOTE: I am fully aware that I have also taken part in such toxicity in the past and have been/will be attempting to be a better person.
Now, don’t get me wrong…it’s not ALL bad, and there is still a lot of good people around with good intentions and actions. I still look forward to interacting with so very many here. Still, something feels much different lately.
Do others feel this way too? Can anything be done? Or is it just me? Thanks for all thoughts in advance!
