Got kinda wordy last night..

It all boils down to this in chat..

The people I blocked push buttons and often about nothing to do with the game. If it is actually about the game it's just to get the ball rolling for what comes next.. then a normal (but so damn naive) person will try and reason with them. When reasoning doesn't work it turns into a poo slinging contest. Then there is a lull... Then maybe some game chatter.. Then it all starts all over gain.

A variation on this is.. the normal but naive person will try and argue with them or put them down due to being in Situation A, above, X amount of times (whatever their limit is) already.

The result is always the same. Things get dragged into the muck and then it's a muck throwing contest. Then there's a lull... then maybe people game chat a little or just dive straight back into the muck.

These trolls are whales, too. I left that part out up to now but it is a point of interest. I dunno if they all are (due to I didn't stick around long enough or pay enough attention when I was listening) but from what I remember about before I blocked them - they always were bragging how money didn't matter to them and they were also all retired and had all the time in the world for payback. The guy from them that I was private messaging before I decided to block them all, his only advice was what to buy, when I was trying to learn the game at first. His only not financial advice was dead wrong and cost me days to fix (faction thing).

Oh it's the worst - global(galaxy) chat. Foul. They even have foul character names that they bend around the bad language filter. You wouldn't invite anyone like your mom or a young kid to play this game. Nonstop petty bickering. One side giving the grief, the other side feeding them to continue. Every single day and night. I finally got sick of reading it and blocked an entire (small) alliance weeks ago and never looked back. These trolls like to change their names every day or so so you never know who you're talking to at first but they're all in the same Alliance so I just started blocking the whole alliance when seeing them in chat. I blocked a couple of foul people from other Alliances or who are rogue but they aren't nearly as active.

I've talked to people that saw the tv ads for this game like me and thought the game would be fun and ended up saying 'yeah, this isn't what I expected' and poof they are gone. I mean, trek followers generally aren't foul. The atmosphere this game always gets dragged back to is nothing like what Trek preaches.

I think since my first online game I never blocked anyone for anything other than like gold spammers. I've prided myself on not blocking people.. but man.. it just never stops with these guys and it never will as long as they get attention and so many people don't seem to get that. It's diarrhea of the mouth and I just got tired of it after awhile being the same thing over and over. I don't think it's one person because before I blocked them I had one of them in private messages while a couple of the others were going on in chat. As far as getting people to take sides it's always the foul pointless side (always the same people) and everyone else. I wouldn't be surprised if they were Russian propagandists the way they make American military looks so .. bad. And again, if they weren't encouraged so much I'm nearly certain they wouldn't still be there. At the very least chat would be better because most of what it is now is troll feeding due to I have the trolls blocked but not the feeders.

What's almost just as bad is those people that continue to respond to them. It's the same thing every day and night. 'I'm saying repulsive things', 'you're repulsive', 'I'm saying repulsive things', 'you're repulsive'... someone take that record off and break it and then burn it, sheesh..

Often these are reasonable sounding adults we're talking about and they're not idiots... but they are! How hard is it to just ignore the hatemongers and raid their bases....? They're already officially serverwide KOS. They ruin the chat. You can't have any kinda decent game chat before it gets dragged into the muck.

I really wouldn't expect this kind of thing in a major title game, especially Star Trek! But there it is.

There's more people that play the game that are actually .. normal and nice than aren't but they get chased out of chat due to it's a lost cause. Chat is mostly dominated, or at least sidetracked by, the same trolls every day and those that feed them.

Sometimes I wonder if situations like that aren't trolls with multiple accounts talking to themselves just to get other people to take sides.

(The mobile games I usually play have been mostly free of such trolling.  I've been lucky.)

Global chat in this game is SO easy to troll. Every day.. day in, day out.. Same people. Month after month, the very same people.

I try to teach their feeders in private messages "Don't Feed The Trolls". Otherwise they never leave. They feed... on you. Getting mad and calling them names is... Food.

People don't get it though. Perfectly intelligent seeming people *feed feed feed*. Day in, day out, telling trolls how horrible they are *feed feed*.

Lordy...

I've been chalking it up to the fact that this game started on Phone. I'm guessing this is a Phone Game thing.. But sheesh, wise up already huh? The trolls wouldn't still be at it if they didn't have such a GREAT source of FOOD. geez..

This is fully covered in Internet 101...
