People will be people (aka assholes and idiots) no matter what you do. This is in our nature, as is the competitive drive to win, and war. Fighting nature is difficult, yet easily won. You don't have to go out and change others; you need only change yourself. The first step towards fixing yourself is realizing there's a problem; welcome to the first step towards a better community. Leave your shoes at the door, please.
'People will be people (aka assholes and idiots) no matter what you do.' Thanks for stating what I said
'Fighting nature is difficult, yet easily won.' What, so is it easy or difficult to win against nature?
'You don't have to go out and change others; you need only change yourself.' So why'd you write this post?
Ok well I wrote a huge reply that did not save because I clicked on preview and the internet was down so I lost everything.
So instead of giving up I will write the short version of why this topic annoyed me, and please don't think that this is some sort of attack, I'm just stating my opinion.
I don't like your post because of how you expect people to change, yes people will always swear even if you ask them politely to stop, and while I do not like people who can't control their emotions, what really annoys me about this post is how you are forcing your opinions on others. I hate runners and campers.
Runners run away from an endgame situation and just waste everyone's time, which is incredibly annoying.
Campers are too cowardly to actually play the game and just hide until the round is over, forever defending their territory.
While I do hate these type of players, I do not type into chat 'RUNNER' and 'CAMPER.' I just play the game and deal with it.
I much prefer a good game where let's say both players have around the same health and fight 1v1, whether it's melee or guns I don't care, as long as they don't run away it's good.
You are so self righteous because you are forcing others to play how you want them to, which is to 'do anything to win' even if that means being a backstabbing cheeky cunt.
It's more fun to play a game and properly earn your victory by not using scumbag methods.
How about you play the game how you want to play, and I play how I want to play.
I am a quite tired and I am aware that this post is a bit tedious so I will summarise it all here:
1) I do not like players who use bad language towards other players, but you asking them to 'stop being scrubs' is a futile attempt and nothing will change them, especially the raging Russian and the Caps only Spaniard. Don't expect that you really changed anyone.
2) As I said, what I really don't like about your topic is you forcing others to accustom to your play style. You can be a 'runner' and 'camper' all you like, but If I want to play a fair and good game, I will do so, and not do whatever it takes to win (especially them dive kickers). I want to feel like I truly deserved the win. You asking or more or less demanding others to play differently is a dickhead move.
I will say this again, I don't have anything against you but your post was quite stupid with the whole point of 'Wash your mind clean and start anew. No more name calling, no more "codes of honor". Just a simple goal: Win. Do whatever it takes.'
I honestly think you're the one who needs to git gud because I have never found myself at a real disadvantage in this game, I play extremely fair without being a runner, camper etc, I only found myself at disadvantages when I'm in an open area and the enemy has a grenade launcher or rpg.
Other players including myself will have fun playing this game how we want to.
