The biggest problem is actually the lack of teamwork in most minigames.
Usually you can feel more comfortable when one of the rare Guardians pick up the flag but even then, without tactical teamwork it might end up a defeat.
There is even minigames you can win against OP teams actually if you really work together.
Sometimes you might have an enemy close to death and nearby your team needs assistance to fend off the enemy group so i believe it’s a matter of priorities.
Regarding the crap talk, when i first started i answered the same way. Just don’t close the group chat because of them, usually there are some Vets trying to coordinate us and it can be the difference between Victory or Defeat.
So i recommend to anyone new not taking seriously the flaming they might receive. Answer the same way and tell them to behave.
It’s also a good idea to level up with friends and get T1 armor and AAs a bit and only join a minigame once you finally understand your class and builds. Then… You gonna need training and that’s the tricky one cause you can’t learn everything by yourself.
Understanding your builds and combo rank setup is also very critical since you will discover that you might needs that extra edge of dmg output and eventually settle with a fighting style. As you get used to the movement you might choose more burst to get that kill beside the risk since that can be managed etc. etc.
Edit: I wanna add something as well, it was a long time since it happened again.
The most ungrown stupid child, will start with ‘‘Profane behaviour’’ only to get answered at the same way. It’s not online chat issue it’s about ‘‘Rules & Behaviour’’ It’s a ‘‘Social Matter’’ of ''Respecting people you don’t know or anything about them.
When somebody in the street insults you, you usually end up in a fight. In a minigame they might as well vote kick the insulted one if he answers back and you just get pissed off.
This issue can’t be fixed without active surveillance thus many will not learn to behave. We’re simply left with the ignore option. So the ‘‘Rule’’ Profanity/ Discrimination/ Solicitation etc. doesn’t work at all here…
