@JazzOnTheWeekend Ugh, I have over 7000 hours in Chivalry, I was an alpha tester for Mordhau with over 1000 hours in game as well as an alpha tester for Chiv2. I have been playing and testing video games, probably longer than you have been alive. The problem is that there are already tools in place if you are overly sensitive. Use them. I personally do not care how you feel because feelings are not tangible and they change like the wind. You do not feel the same you did 10 mins ago or even an hour ago. Most likely you don’t even remeber how you felt. How you think and what you think is far more important. If you do not know “how” to think then most likely you are being told “what” to think. That is the major difference here. Knowing "how’ to think you can critically understand how to use the tools already given too you. You would also know that words cannot hurt you and you can simply ignore them.
If you are too busy worrying about what is happening in a game chat, then you are not actually playing the game. Chat has no bearing on game play or weather it is “toxic” or not. Team killing and playing against your team is far more toxic than words on a screen I barely have time to even look at. Why? Because I am busy actually playing the game to be distracted or offended. Thus if you live your life with racist or offensive colored glasses, that is all you will ever see is racism and all you will ever be is in a never ending state of being offended.
