Why have people become so unfriendly in EL ?

Recommended Posts

Loggin in saw that it was an invasion going on. Checked channel 6 and it was dead silence there. Noone was talking.

 

Tried to ask about where and what for kind of invasion there was and only thing I got was unfriendly smart remarks without any substance about the invasion.

 

So when did EL stop being friendly and just people stopped caring and found it more important to just give smart remarks without substance ?

It probably became unfriendly the moment people from other, larger games found it and decided to annoy the general, quiet population

 

Atleast that's what happened it lots of other games I've played

Just yesterday i heard of someone randomly giving some free manupots to a semi newbie character, because he had told that he wanted to do some manuing.

 

2 weeks ago, I accidentally stepped off the ladder in Bethel when the invasion had just started there. I had been silly enough to not carry a rosto, and of course, with just some ranging gear, my hood and my PS cloak, I didn't stand a chance. 4 people tried unselfishly to help me recover my bag, and just in time it did get rescued.

 

My guildie died and lost a rather large deathbag, and other guildies all pitched in to help him out and replace most of the stuff.

 

It's still there.. just a bit better hidden than before I guess.

 

PS these are just random examples and doesn't even come close to all the other kind things I see happening.. not only to me, but by others to others as well. Stay out of ebul spammy channel 6, and look for kindness elsewhere.

I think many people find out that EL is not providing fun anymore. I am rarely playing EL now, too. I found another free game that has Linux client as well, so no more harvesting for me, just adventures and group battles against other realms.

I decide to do hard work at work, and to have fun when playing.

EL is my first online game ever so I can't compare the EL community to other online game communities. I'm not a role player and I rarely ever open channels other than guild channel.

I think it depends on the person. There are definitely more troublemakers now and people who like to throw around dumb remarks but there are still a lot of good and respectable people and players with integrity.

I was online when you asked that in ch 6 - I was well into some toad mixing at Mel sto. Please bear in mind that you were asking at the slowest time of the day in terms of online players. And that number has been much lower as of late, so anyone who was actually in the invasion was probably knee-deep in carcasses or fighting tooth-and-nail to keep a brick out of Radu's hands :D

 

Also, you were asking in channel 6 (although it is the invasion channel) it was previously mentioned that that is hardly the best indicator of the general EL state of affairs - particularly lately as some of the UF way of speaking has found a home there with profanity, veiled flames, etc..

 

Perhaps, if what you say is in a small way justified, it could be directly related to the general malaise and frustration many players have been voicing and feeling as of late. If they seem to be having less 'fun', then an attitude change is hardly surprising - it's not rocket science.

 

I'd say that those of us who have not flown the coop and choose to keep EL our home-away-from-home try a little harder to keep a positive outlook and have a kinder approach to others. It will only get as bad as we ourselves allow it to get :D

 

:P

pah, who want's a perfect EL with no action?? c'mon that's like separating the fat kid and a cake a game full of incredibly nice ppl would get plain boring and you all will turn over to the "unfriendly" side of things.

 

besides, if this gets fixed somehow ppl will just find something else to whine about.

Wouldn't you love to have such a game (with a gfx like in the pic)?

Agreed on that one Xena, Been here for years.......and then some, and have seen alot come and go, I have made a home here, and here is where i plan on being regardless of the "outlook of affairs" Stay around long enough and you will see changes come and go, people come and go, but all in all its worth every bit of it.

I think most people are pretty friendly. At least you won't run into stuff like: "do u want to be my gf pls?/" or "can i have free stfuff!!1".

Also think this is not good idea how to start conversation...

no really, #6 is a joke. How did the invasion/Leonard channel become general chat?
Well, the quoted post below was the original intention of channel 6, along with the concept of allowing more unrestricted topics of conversation to allow mature discussions about hot topics EL or non-EL related (within reason) when Lenny or invasions were NOT happening:

 

Official Invasion and Leonard Channel Rules (#jc 6):

1. First and foremost this channel is for discussion about invasions and Leonard (Alpha).

2. This channel may be used for EL or off-topic conversation when there is no discussion about invasions or Leonard happening.

3. The invasions and Leonard take precedence over non-related chatter, so if you are asked to stop chatting because of an invasion or Leonard event. do so.

4. By allowing this chat, we also expect you will still follow all game rules and the general official channel rules. That means no obscenities, no flaming, etc. Anybody who abuses the right to chat in this channel can and will be removed or muted or worse.

 

However there are a handful of people who think it's fun to push the envelope of acceptable topics, or just use it for their personal clique-y spam and have pretty much ruined the channel. It's a hard channel to moderate, obviously there are some extremes that are no-brainers, but one person's spam and idiocy is another's "discussion". Give the mods a break on this one, we're doing our best to stick to the intent of the channel and moderate at the same time.

 

I do caution everyone though, that this is NOT an "anything goes" channel. Some people still don't get that. However most moderating will be done on a case by case basis, depending on how out-of-hand and immature things go.

 

Edit: I would also like to remind everybody that first and foremost this is an invasion and Lenny channel. If you are tired of hearing people log on and ask about the invasion status or lenny status, I strongly urge you to find another channel to chat in, such as 4 or 20. It is NOT acceptable to be rude and dismissive to people asking about the main topic of this channel, and if I ever see that, I will personally escort you to another channel.

If Silvatica can't expect to get information about an invasion on the Invasion/Lenny channel, I am at a lost where s/he should ask about that information... Ask on General Chat and they send you to channel 6....

 

@Aislinn, I could not agree with you more.

 

As far as folks becoming unfriendly, I don't know if that is the case or I'm just noticing more. Either way, it seems to me that folks are bit more on edge of late.

Yeah, no kidding. The cost rostos are going up enough that you might as well trade 2 hydro bars for one. It is now cheaper to go on hydro runs without a rosto unless you have cool gear on. lol

 

On another note, I think the definition that Aislin gave was a more recent one. What was the Old definition of channel 6? When did that definition become active? Some of us have played way longer than Leonard has been in the game.

Channel 6 used to be the official Events channel, moved to channel 7, iirc.

P.S.: Bad mood? Don't be pissy, take a break, come back when you calm down. If you must unleash some anger, hit a wall, it helps and it doesn't hurt anyone... except you maybe.. But at least you don't hurt anyone else. ;p
