I written on this before.  

 

In 1.X with no respawns, people had a lot of time on their hands after being shot down waiting for the battle to be over and often felt the need to occupy themselves with the in-flight chat.  Surprisingly, there was just about as much grief from my own team about "stealing" kills and generally not flying "right" as from the opponents about cheating or poor sportsmanship (ramming, picking on individuals, etc). 

 

Sometimes, I'd get a full 10 minutes of complaining which would often escalate to messages so censored  I couldn't understand them (**** you, *** *******) when I didn't respond.

 

The 2.0 crowd is much more laid back, or has too much going on.

 

 

I know you are a true veteran...

and I respect your opinion, 

it's just that I had much different experiences

I enjoyed the 1.x experience so much more

2.0 is so guarded and contrived...

almost phony in it's attitude toward real life

it's no excuse for rudeness but... an invitation for honesty

I like honesty much better

in general, life is just too short to get sucked into toxic chatfights

 

this game and this forum are both such a pleasure

I never thought that the old no-respawn mechanic had something to do with chat negativity, but now that I have read this thread, it's at least part of it.  

 

So many times in 1.X, being one of the last survivors, you had people scream at you via chat that you are doing it all wrong and go here, go there, do this, do that, what are you, an idiot?  That is now gone because they are all back in battle.  At least until the squall line hits.  

 

Add to that the fact that there are far fewer real humans per battle.  If you only have 1 or 2 humans per side, the potential for chat-sniping is greatly reduced.  

 

I do miss telling people "UR ded, shut up".

And all the lights that light the way are blinding
There are many things that I would like to say to you
But I don't know how

Well Bobby it does require some intellect..if you don't get it, don't condemn those who do.

 

Trump would have no clue. ;)

its always been less toxic, even with the constant stream of jaded comments about past mistakes, this place can be a blast to read. 

 

I personally think its down to a few things most already mentioned:

Age: think most people are a little older or at least more mature than your standard "i hate you face internet guy/girl"

frame of mind: wrapping your head around 3d combat requires a little more of an open mind than "hide in da bush and shoot at them"

small community: for whatever reasons its always been a small community here, fun, crazy, but not "tanky" at all.

 

who knows, i just know that i stop in every 2-3 months to see how everyone is dong from the old days (surprising number of them still haunting the place). its great to come back and see all the people who used to play a PVP game with you, lots of respect of skills etc. Not something ive seen on any popular game websites...

Ace,

 

You and I are of the same mind.  I liked the 1.x version of this game soooo much better.  I wish they would bring it back but know they won't. 

 

This game attracts new players for the ease of flying/playing and the fancy graphics but isn't challenging enough to keep people interested.  Skill to move up has largely been replaced by grinding.

 

I flight up with lots of new folks and they say they love it but after a few days, I never see them again.

 

The main point I was trying to make was that with the re-spawns, people have a lot less time chat and don't go off on personal rants, criticism or "(not) helpful" suggestions.  

 

Minus a few very rare exceptions, people here and in the game are great!  The exceptions were unfortunately slightly less rare in 1.x but still only 2 people I ever seriously considered blocking and only 1 did I actually block.  Not a bad experience for 7 years of entertainment.

thanks for clarifying your post...

sometimes I's as dumb as a hitchin' post

I agree that there is less discord and in game rage rants,

but for what we've given up in the name of bliss and content...

I'd argue we got the brown end of the stick

be careful for what you wish for and stuff...

The song is an otherwise great song, I've always thought, but the casual use of the ''F' word just ruins it.

An average player with an average goal: greatness, someday. Today, mediocrity will have to suffice. But no matter, I will always play to the best of my ability, and I will always strive to make the best of my ability just that little bit stronger and better.

casual, certainly not imho

it's used to emphasis the chasm between his good and bad and it's effect on his present life

this is a dirty city life he portrays

that word is like using the word damn
