Keep insults and smack talk game related. Never insult someone's religion or personal beliefs. Don't be a racist. Just as in the real world, hate is hate and is unacceptable

Please keep the insults to playing the game. What is the purpose of talking smack about something that is not even game related? Now I know smack talk is an important aspect of the game and that's my point of the game! Why to bring up something that has nothing to do with what you are doing right now?


Smack talk and insults are a crucial part of the fun of the game. It is not that fun, if you have to defend your religious beliefs or political views. Why should you have to defend the spring when you're just playing a simple videogame? We are here to escape all that silliness anyway. Why bring it into the game? This isn't the real world. Treating it like it is.


There is no reason to insult someone's religious views when you can insult their weak game playing abilities. I think it is much more gratifying to rub someone's nose in the fact that I just annihilated them and there's nothing they can do about it. It is much more entertaining and gratifying to insult someone you just fragged to oblivion than insult them about their candidate losing an election. What does that have to do with gameplay anyway?


I mean come on, we are here to escape the real world. Not bring it into our fantasy world. Why would you even want to bring that real world into a game? I thought we were all here to have a good time and you can't have a good time when someone is insulting you personally.


The point is this, there is no place in the gaming world for personal insults to another player. It is tasteless and an immature way of playing the game. If you can't hold your own without spouting personal insults then maybe you should go to practice some more. You are not welcome in any of my games.

Remember to play for fun

This is probably one of the most important things I can talk about on this blog. Why can't more people be online that want to have fun when they play? Isn't that what everyone is here for anyway? I know people that need to be reminded of this every time they play. I know it's ridiculous to say that they need to remember to play for fun.

The game quickly becomes unentertaining when someone on the board stops having fun. You can tell easily when someone stops playing for the purpose of entertainment also. The player begins to insult others abundantly and quickly. It is easier to pick up on someone’s frustration when you can hear their voice of course but you can easily determine when someone stops playing the game for fun.

Every player at one point or another gets very frustrated and stops playing the game for the fun of it. I am no exception, and neither are you. Just do your best to be aware of the fact that you are no longer playing the game to be entertained. I know it's tough, but for the sake of everyone playing and yourself. It's a valuable to know when to stop playing because the game is no longer fun.

I don't understand why you'd want to continue playing once the game has no longer an appeal to you to be fun. If you do however, just remember there are others out there and you don't want to affect their game just because you are no longer enjoying yourself. If you do enjoy ruining the fun for someone else, then I am sorry. You just don't get it the purpose of playing online.
