  • expiator blocking - affects a lot of people
    "lol it's fine there are a lot of hell worlds"

    getting an abuse - affects one person
    "BUT IT FEELS BAD TO LOOK AT"

    being wrong on a topic - affects one person
    "BUT IM BEING HOUNDED BY CRITICS!"

    in summary?

    ME ME ME ME ME.

      Expirator blocking is like spamming protected items then selling land in worlds:
      "There's plenty of worlds, just go build somewhere else"

      People don't get it :(

  • Is griefing allowed in this game? Because there is a certain player who will bomb you for just happening to be close to them when mining. This isn't the same as in dungeons wherein youre trying to prevent stealers. It just victimizes whoever may happen across them even without intention. This only leads to less satisfaction in the game for those who come across said player. Also seems to be a bypass of the karma system.

    Now I'm sure people like dakota are easy to deal with by just muting but you cant really deal with this certain person by reports cause it only covers the chatlog.

    Letting this person be isn't recommended since it defeats the purpose of PvP worlds and gives the certain player unwarranted privilege to be a jerk to other players. If everyone played like he did; the animosity would be greater. While this isn't the case, seeing bully behavior like this is incredibly unfortunate for a community that seems to be bettering itself.

      To add, this person defends his actions by saying "they might steal my loot" but this is the kind of offensive realism that divides a community rather than helps it.

      Romyr, to say that deepworld is represented by one jerk of a player is to say that all players are like them or some other toxic player like Dakota. Wrong.

      He never really said that, he just welcomes you to Deepworld, where you can sometimes pass by a troll every now and then
    • Dracul

      Even if he never did there is an implication of it. Either way it normalizes the behavior which harms more than helps.

      There's no way to report a guy who continuously bombs you. Or I'd report a certain guy a because he kills me and sends me back to a spawn miles away when I'm trying to build :P
    • Dracul
      Dracul
      ^Yeah tbh I think this shouldnt be the case. If it were hub worlds like Times where everyone's just at one spot chatting I'd be more lenient. The case is different when someone's actually trying to play.

      So this happens in PvP or nonPvP? Is it specific to you or is this an overwhelming problem?

    • vin_venture

      So don't mine close to them. Plenty of space, plenty of worlds, no need to hang out in the vicinity of ultra-defensive players.
    • Dracul
      Dracul
      non PVP. Not specific to me either. Often if said player is in the world I see someone go "WTF" in chat after being killed without being provoked.

      Vin, again, that's victim blaming. It's not like these people intentionally hang near the guy. Some have lower perception than him so his definition of "close" can be different. The moment you get on his screen he will try to kill you. Most players just want to explore in peace and there's a pretty obvious difference between someone trying to steal stuff and someone just happening to be there. Moreso if there's no dungeon in sight. To tolerate ultra-defensive behavior is to imply it's fine despite it being a practice that can hinder the experience of the game for other people. If a newbie came across this player they'd be discouraged in going further. Impressions matter and this guy is not helping.

      Troll: spawns in unexplored worlds, hard to avoid and will try to throw bombs on you when he sees you

      Great mob
    • vin_venture
      vin_venture
      The bomber is responsible for being a jerk. However, I put forward a solution that you, yourself, can carry out immediately. If you want the devs to do something, send an email or post in feedback and game ideas. Or perhaps you are looking for an angry mob? On a related note, don't people get karma for bombing in non-pvp worlds?
    • _Brainstorm_
      _Brainstorm_
      Karma doesn't really accumulate that fast, and mines will give the killing to the victim himself
    • Dracul
      Dracul
      Yeah tbh Karma rises slower than expected. I do avoid the player but bringing up the abusive behavior is still warranted. It's not really a "solution" to ignore them imo. Ignoring them wont lead to the behavior being done any less. In fact people condoning it so much might be the reason he does it.
    • vin_venture
      vin_venture
      I don't find this to be a serious offense worthy of punishment. There is no loss of possessions or griefing of builds involved. It is annoying. So are brains, stalactites, acid rain, turrets, and all the other deepworld things that kill you.
    • Dracul
      Dracul
      The things you mentioned are inherent features designed to be threats. A player suddenly bombing you breaks the notion of "be polite" in the code of conduct; especially if you have done nothing to aggravate them like stealing and such. If players were intended to be hazards all worlds would be PVP.
    • Dracul
      Dracul
      imo we'll just have to agree to disagree on this, Vin
    • vin_venture
      vin_venture
      Come to think of it, I definitely view other players as hazards even if it is not intended that way. Yep, there's no eye to eye on this one. I will return to silent lurking now

      To be fair, there isnt much skill in this game besides being a good trader... this could be the skill section instead of exploring being all about luck. Also i do bomb people, i will admit it. BUT, i only bomb after they intentionally follow my path i made... then i just simply dig with a shovel and place 2 mines :)

  • For someone who hangs around people who recently attacked others for "disrupting the forums", @BrainGamer is pretty racist and ignorant. He "jokes" about asian stereotypes when he has nothing else to say and can't accept his own wrongs. People like these are why the ig community is so looked down upon.

      On that note, I'd like to remind everyone who plays to go through the tribunal once in a while. Regulating the forums only goes so far.

      Basically, brain and another guy were antagonizing a player for being wrong on the topic of Hunter Heads being found in brain biomes. This usually isnt too abusive but they just kept going on and on about it even after the guy learned his mistake. Losing my patience, I asked him to stop the imaginary ego contest. He retorted with how my life is imaginary. Being foolish enough to prolong the squabble, I insisted that an imaginary life may be true for all of us anyway and that I didnt see the insult, citing Hindu Maya as an example. He then immediately went "youre an idiot my life is real. chinese chingchong wonton" because of the mention of Hindus which wasnt even accurate to what he was trying to make fun of. This tilted me enough to rant on here and report him in game.

      Looking back, I probably shouldn't have let it escalate that much. Either way, it seems the overabundance of ego and self importance didnt end in the forum community.
