About sexist and rude peoples

This sucks that this happens.

Here is a suggestion just for the interm until a reporting feature is added - you can purchase some of those voice changer devices so that at least you will not have to deal with the headache of it.

I usually get downvoted for this type of post - keep in mind, I am not saying it is ok that this happens. I am just saying that because it does happen, here is an option to avoid the headache of it.

Try being purely businesslike. Don’t use emoticons, don’t say hi or be friendly. Don’t react to any mention of your gender. Anything you say should be relevant to the game at hand only. If you’re queuing with friends, then you can do whatever you want since no one should be able to kick you.

You can report them on Steam but hopefully Fatshark escalates this.

This is why i am disable my voice chat. We all well known how hysterical can be some peoples. No matter what is their gender but that voice spammers makes my ears bleed.

I guess we can expect a privilege check before starting the game in the future.

Oh I didnt know that, interesting.

I can’t tell if that’s sarcasm or not, so I will just post a couple of links just in case: link1, link2.

Sorry you had to deal with that. In my experience it is the exception, not the rule. Just leave as soon as possible next time someone starts abusing you - it is just not worth it imo. Also, like someone else said, you can report them on steam.

Befriend all the nice people so you have some normal people to play with. Don’t have much free time lately, but feel free to pm me, my group is a wonderful bunch.

On a side note, its funny how many girls I’ve come across while pubing Legend and all of them were good. The fact they were using voice makes me optimistic most people don’t abuse them.

Sometimes you feel like your favorite game should be more known.
And when it get known, you’re sad cause half of the new people are ruining the community.

I had 0 problem in my whole playtime of VT1. And I’m realyl sad to see such stupid people in the VT2 community now (from “If u don’t do dis dev, I quit” to “Lol git gud legend is izi u suck”)
I mean it went from spamming “HOLY SIGMAR” in twitch chat to kicking people because you don’t like them.

Anyway, I hope (and it started to happen) that these player will effectively leave the game. A lot of them already started doing it, and my games have been better recently.
In any case, we need a report option I guess.

Can you post a video when this happens next time. Maybe will give clarity to why this happens.

I think i said everything i wanted to those guys in the Thread @NikKotovski linked ^^

But yea, i hope we get at least an ingame block/friend-list like in other games - but for now, just ignore this people, i dont lose much sleep over this jerks in the end of the day. Or try to get one of your friends to play with you, so when they start to kick you over this BS you are at least on the save side

I think its just jerks - you know, the 12 year old that buy games because of the hype and start insulting and kicking people - cause the 'innernet

Currently the best way to deal with this is a regulated ‘‘honor’’ system where players can give a positive or negative mark.

Then an algorithm will divide the players of given statistics.

This is’nt perfect but it has proven effective in games with toxic attitude problems. I just fear that currently moral policing is somewhat of a big mouthful.

I don’t get what the suspicion is here among some of the comments. Everyone knows there’s a lot of sexism among elements of the gaming community. Someone came to vent about it and had a screenshot? Most women I know who game won’t even do multiplayer because of behaviour like this.

Most people have had ‘that’ match where people are rude and kick them or troll them, at least a couple of times. It happens to women gamers more, probably. Sorry that happened, I wish there was some way to root out this kind of nasty behaviour.

I’ve never been a dikk about it, but my prejudice that women are performing worse in competetive games, i’ve very rarely been proven wrong, that said i’ve played with some great female players that are proving the stigma wrong. But from my experience they’re more the exception to the rule than anything else. I think it’s more rooted in the fact that theres just less of a competetive interest from said group : s then again people can be asholes and it’s more prevalent with anonymity sadly.

Sorry to hear that about your experience.

Ladies should be able to enjoy games as much as men do.

I think gaming in general though there are alot of nasty people.

Please know that there are good guys out there.

You’d be surprised there is no particular age group.

Yea but stereotypes :stuck_out_tongue:

I consider people displaying this kind of behavior as having some serious issues. You should feel bad for them as they clearly need help. In general I suggest gathering some friends and playing with them, you get less toxic and brainless behaviour.

Sorry you experienced that. Make a point to remember their names. If I ever group with such turds, they’ll be kicked promptly. I am a trade apprenticeship trainer, and I see this stuff a lot. It’s stupid, and I can tell you first hand that gender/race is certainly not an indicator of capabilities.

Instead of whining, you could just deactivate voice-chat and not play with people who don’t like you?`

I sure as hell don’t want to hear horrible nerd nasal voices when I play the game. And if the host wants to kick me for that, I simply leave.

It’s amazing how hyper thin-skinned some community members are?
