The first thing I did was go to the gear icon above the chat box and go to chat settings and UNCHECKED AREA CHAT.
I can see how the Barrens chat would be frustrating, especially if your looking for a guild to join, etc. I can only hope that when the free open beta ends and people are actually committed to the game that the quality of chat will improve. Until then, my area chat will remain disabled.
with being the most popular pvp server that is how it goes. i have found pvp community to be the worst in every mmo. it brings out the d-bags.
The whole this game will go F2P and micro-transactions deal got kind of old after a while.
Maybe I'll go back to SWTOR when it goes F2P.
Never playing another tab to target game again. Ever.
It might be just because I partake in Internet debauchery so I may be bias but I think its freaking hilarious most of the time.
I don't really spam area chat at all though but most of the stuff on Area chat can be really funny and worth reading. Keeps meh entertained.
If you have an issue with internet chat so to speak just filter it out. Don't really need to try and get EME to do something about it when a FILTER exists.
See Pet's being taken away. Filter existed already and was in game but they took it away because of you retarded players who don't know how to use filters.
and you've been playing MMOs for how long, OP?
Who cares what people say...I mean seriously, how can you take peoples comments to heart this much? lol
Grow a pair and ignore it, it becomes funny when people like you actually take offence to the crap that spills from trolls mouths. You're enabling them, stop it!
The OP is correct. Anyone born pre-90s can attest to the degradation of dialogue by the average person talking under the guise of anonymity. The attitude issues and total disregard and respect to a person, their beliefs, or opinions can be seen anywhere a comment or chat box is available online.
Apparently none of these people realize just how sadly they demean themselves by wanting to speak in such a hateful way, constantly. The "toughen up" responses are foolish and only ignores the problem. I change my chat tab to /party or /whisper in Tera but it doesn't change the fact that people are being the typically villains in mass.
Most of these people weren't raised to carry themselves in such a demeaning way and certainly wouldn't act the same offline, so why do it online? My non-hateful attitudes and treatment of others online is the same as they are offline, so I have to constantly give the people, I party with or see in-game, the benefit of the doubt that they're not a scumbag offline in the real world as they are online in-game.
In the end, it's all really just plain sad that people enjoy behaving in a hateful way the majority of their time online.
Meh, he had a lot of brilliant and twisted minds behind him.
I dont know that I'd argue he was brilliant himself.
I am Jewish, had most of my family annihilated by the Holocaust. But I understand what you are saying.
But again the figurehead isn't always the brains of the operation.
Fact is Hitler was the perfect figurehead for the 3rd Reich as he was incredibly charismatic and a powerful orator. That's about where his true brilliance ended though.
