Handling Rude Players?

    I tend to confront the rude player, most of the time the person is simply frustrated that something didn't go right so they lash out at the one(s) whom they perceive to be the problem. Usually I can calm them down or they leave on their own accord. However, there are those times when the rude person is just an arrogant sot and the only way to deal with him is to kick him.

    If you are mainly talking about speed running and people who don't know how to do that, you could have just said 'when people don't skip adds'. This is something that came up a lot early in FP DLC because of RwR's very skippable adds. Doesn't change the fact people don't need to be rude about it when someone gets caught, but it does eliminate the other types of 'right' or 'wrong' play you might have been talking about.

    And for that specific situation, it would again depend. A few of my toons are going to be tanks or healers in there. If someone was blowing ahead of me and being a 'duck' about it, I'd probably just let them. When they hit the next batch of adds and I'm still back helping the guy who is NOT skipping, I'd say their rudeness will be rewarded properly. Might even save me a kick vote when they leave. But again...it would depend on the level of rudeness. IF it's just 'ugh...you can just skip the adds'...I think that's a reasonable level of frustration to rudeness....if it's "HEY A-HOLE...SKIP THE FRIGGING ADDS OR I'LL BURN YOUR HOUSE DOWN"....welp....not so much.

    It is more than just skipping adds that this happens with, though. "MORE POWER!!!" "It would be nice if tanks knew how to pull." Passive aggressive, derogatory remarks don't help people learn either.

    When it comes to those type of comments, one thing to always consider is not so much where the comment is coming from or what the comment is in a negative way but consider WHY the comments being made.
    Self reflection can help in that case in the future.
    In ur example, say ur the tank that “needs to learn how to pull”. While its a passive aggressive comment yes its no that bad really. Even if it were really bad tho, understand that theres still a root cause for the comment an thats you being a cruddy tank an not doing ur job right.
    The other player may be in the wrong for making comments rather than tryin to help BUT if you do “learn how to pull” then your better for it and the comments are less likely to happen again. If u ignore it, you dont learn what u need to learn this your still a crappy tank an other ppl are gonna comment too.
    Again, the other player is prob wrong for what they are sayin and/or how they are sayin it for sure BUT remember, wrong or not, theres prob a good reason for the comment and use that to get better

    Nah, Teach them some manners and report them. We are all old enough to know how to talk to one another, or just walk away. Letting someone have a temper tantrum isn't acceptable. Report away.

    Leave group, leave instance , add them to ignore, avoid them and report them as a toxic player. No one should have to go through that while playing a video game.

    If it's something relatively harmless like "(insert role), negative blah blah comment" and a one off, I'll likely just ignore it and keep going. If it's a repeat of that issue within the same instance, I'll note the players name and on the off chance we group up again, I'll see if the behavior is standard for them. If it is, I'll add them to ignore. Don't think I'd report someone for that though. Not even sure I have anyone on my ignore list that would fall into this category.

    Something that crosses into personal attack territory, racism, bigotry and so on, add them to ignore and report. We don't need those types of players in this community. I see little need to give someone the benefit of doubt when it comes to things like that. If an account gets banned as a result of their action, so be it. It's a players choice as to whether or not they use certain types of language and insults, the consequences of that choice is solely on them, not the one doing the reporting.

    It also goes against the TOS for playing the game.

    I ignore them. I have a pretty high tolerance for things like that so it would take a LOT for me to get to the reporting aspect. Of course the few times I've had to do that I was polite enough to let them know ahead of time, which I can only guess went over well because... ya know... they were ignored. :D

    Put them on ignore, report and move on. You are here to enjoy the game - not to get people frustration's taken out on you.

    The thing is tho let's say we all did what Zoe just posted. Most of the game's population would be wiped out. It would be almost as bad as when Super Buu did the human extinction attack in Dragon Ball Z.

    I think working to keep the community healthy and friendly to new players is cool.

    Not at the cost of the game's population. This is Dc Universe Online even Batman himself curses in game. This isn't Daycare Universe online some people should have a backbone. Imagine calling 911, because you got called a name on the street

    Imagine not being adult enough to control your emotions when you're upset and having to throw a temper tantrum.

    You've never played another game, and it shows with this comment. The "toxic" community of the game is less than 5%, and that's being really generous. Losing 300 ish players wouldn't wipe out anything. Big L for you my man.

    No TOS on the streets. Terrible comparison.

    Kick or leave/ auto ignore. I love blocking people, I am too old to argue and don’t do back and forths on the internet. Too old for that bs.

    What you're saying doesn't even make any sense. All I said was it's hurting the game's population so a obvious solution would be to ignore, or talk trash back. Sometimes people admire you for standing up for yourself and it works itself out.
