Idk if its just me, but it seems like the salt levels have been rising since Barrens launched. I was wondering what you guys do with toxic players? So you've played a game and see the message a recent opponent would like to be your friend. 9/10 seem to rage IMO.
Not that it bothers me to much tbh, but it I'm considering not even adding them.
I've added images from the latest rage for context.
Unless the game was really close or something weird and funny happened... I will never accept random friend requests.
This person was clearly having a bad day. Big yikes.
he makes some good points about overpowered decks though srs cuz blud
Can’t vote I am toxic lol
Don't post images with people's names or battle tags in it, even if it is very clear proof of them misbehaving. Hide the name, cause we do nto allow naming and shaming. Report them to Blizzard instead.
If you see a bad post on the forum use the report function under it, so I or someone else of the moderation team can take care of it!
I don't accept right away but wait a few weeks, at that time most are just confused.
But yeah, that's how I picture some folks around here that post stupid stuff to the articles or flame others.
Ow sorry, meant no harm by it. Thought it would be ok since the #number wasnt there, my bad. Won't happen again :)
The salt has never been higher
i haven’t squelched in years until a day ago. Just not stop spam as they’re cheap cards so cheap things they net decked and I’m trying to figure out fun combos
I ignore all friend requests, I don't give the benefit of the doubt anymore, and I squelch if the opponent uses emotes for no reason/context.
No people, no problem. Hearthstone is a solo game against very advanced IA.
Yeah, the only requests I accept are if something funny happened or one of us was playing an unusual deck. You can tell when people are being sociable in the game.
Just my opinion and experiences:
i have accepted a few people over the years and mostly ignore what they say but when they go into very nasty vocabulary i report them. I think in a game where children play And everyone is just trying to have fun (nobody is competing for money here! I’m never even legend or anything) there is no space for that stuff...
however ive never got any answers from blizzards, and even some of this people hasn’t unfriended me and still playing the game the days following this... I think a week ban would be appropriate to stop these kind of behaviors
We can use the simple in game process of reporting I assume?
such salt much BM.
You're just under the assumption that you're owed something online. The problem is you, you're toxic. Relax and take this less seriously.
At first I thought they would think me as we had a great game, but they turned out to be toxic trash.
Never find friends enjoying HS again lol
I can't even remember the last time someone tried to add me tbh, I guess I don't play cancerous shite.
Fuck me if I'd ever accept any friend request unless it's from someone I'd want to ask a deck code to anyway.
Rage against my poison priest, who knew.
I remember dealing with this back when HS first launched and for a few expansions after that. Just ignore them, remove the request and move on. Out of sight, out of mind.
Before I accept the friend request, I have some text ready to paste that says something like "I'm sorry you didn't enjoy the game, I hope the next one is better." Strangely enough, some people seem to get even more annoyed. I guess we were all young once...
Why on earth would anyone accept a random friend request?? The last place I would expect to make “new friends” is hearthstone
I've fallen foul a few times of adding people in the hope of maybe making a new friend and then been told to die of a different terminal illness.
A shame as I actually do like to dream of making the odd new friend after a fun close game. Whenever i try to add someone after such a game 99% of the time it's not accepted, I guess because the other players assumes I will flame them.
