Only had this game a couple of weeks now, talked some of my friends and clannies into getting it, and we are having a blast playing it. For this to be an indie game is mighty impressive. We’ve been wishing for a game like this since the days when we would spend hours on end dueling with light sabers in Jedi Knight II. So first and formost thanks for a great game.
I’ve met some good folks in game, like any other game, but there are always bad apples. I’ve been gaming since I was 6 with a black n’ white screen and a pong unit, and I have never in my life encountered such a disrespectful, rude, and obnoxious playerbase in any other game. I couldn’t even begin to guess how many times I’ve been called nr, ft, etc. or told to go f’ myself in the last few days. It’s a tough crowd out there.
I may be considered old fashioned, but I come from a clan that’s been together for many years under one tag or another, and we have never tolerated such behavior on our servers, for any game that we play, mainly because of children being in the games (face it, no matter the game rating, children will still be playing), and we have always had a large player base that returns year after year because of that intolerance for abusive behavior.
Luckily, with the easily available dedicated server software available for this game, this issue can be taken care of, with a little organization. When we play this game, I host a server and can fill up to about 20 slots before any noticable lag takes shape. For now, we’ve been calling it NOOB Training. If you see it, and you can conduct yourself in a respectable manner, by all means hop in and join us. If your going to hurl racial slurs and F’bombs don’t bother, you won’t be there long. Also, don’t come in expecting to tell us how we have to play the game. If we are playing FFA, that is exactly what it means. You don’t get to order anyone there to use their fists. (This actually happens. Had someone tell me today that I have no friends because I wouldn’t fight with my fists in OUR server, along with some other choice words he had for me, rofl. He and his little posse won’t be returning.)
This is not a clan invite, but it is an invite to come play if your looking for somewhere to play that abuse is not tolerated. I don’t run it 24/7 either, but it is up alot, so if your near me on the map, you should see it sometime.
