I’m not here to criticize the game it self. In fact, I think it’s one of the best games available for this video game generation. It’s amazing how they were able to create such an awesome game, with a nice gameplay, great combats, incredible PvE chalenges, beautifull graphics and the best open world map I’ve ever seen. It’s a live world where you can be and you can do whatever you want, and it’s amazing.
But players are destroying the game and the producers does not seem to matter with this. I see here lots of players’ complaints about anti-game, cheatings and other problems caused by players, and in most case, the topic is unlisted or solved with a “We’ve sent to develpment team”. I’ve never seen one situation that was solved and pleased the player. And the worst: community sugests players to find another server, to get used to the problem or to get a private server.
What I want to say is that official servers are the entrance door for most players, and their experience playing there may define what they think about the game. And nowadays, it’s terrible the experience playing in officials servers. When we read this forum topics, it’s like we are in the wonderland. But when we look for external information, where there are no menagers to unlist/block information, all we see is players complaining, making jokes and talking about bad experiences with the game. And it’s terrible, because it’s a very very very good game. I joinned three facebook groups, and all I can see is complaints, complaints and complaints.
So I don’t understand why Funcom does not start to take actions about toxic players behavior. I think there are much more good players then toxic ones. I’ve saw this topic:
But come on, we have two Community Support that seems not to be able to solve this kind of problem. How about one or two guys/girls just to take care of complaints about official servers? Anyone who have played the game as admin knows how easy it is to deslocate throught out the map (admin teleport) and verify if the complaints are true. It won’t take more then half an hour to verity a problem and take an action. Create a warning system, a ban system, whatever is necessary. And believe me, it’s more important than adding new resources in the game to make it more valuable.
So, just create clear rules about what a player can or can’t do in PvE, PvP and PvE-C and start to give attention to players complaints. I know it would be a dream all cases to be solved. But if players take notice about Funcom taking attitude towards this kind of situations, I’m sure they will think more than once before starting an anti-game, cheat or whatever in the game. And the players will start to have a better experience with the game and it will be talked and remembered as the great game it is.
Last time I tried to talk to a toxic player who was blocking resources, he replied to me: “It you don’t like, make a complaint to Funcom LOL”. It’s really becoming a joke…
If I wrote this topic it’s because I care about the game.
