AS someone who has played mmo's/lol/dota/dota2/hots and so fourth... The entire communities in general can be a bit toxic. It's by FAR not just the Americans. I still fear being on a BR/Russian team in dota2/lol. Literally some of my worst toxic games. Doesn't mean I'm blaming then directly, you just need to take it in strides.

Whatttttttt
I mean it's not that I don't agree but starting a thread calling someone else toxic is a bit toxic right?

In therms of gaming I really think the most elitist group of gamers I've ever played with is Japanese people honestly. They get rea;;y picky in games and think there is only ONE true way to clear a quest/mission.

That's just my opinion. I'm just here to have fun, and I hate the feeling when I think I'm making someone angry , even if I'm not in the wrong lol

Nicest MMO community I've every been to has been on a Taiwanese server.

But for me it's not games that I find toxic but drugs. They destroy communities, especially poor communities. Also gangs are toxic and bureaucracies are toxic.

You can take the most toxic community in a game, and it's still not as bad as real world bureaucracies.

I'd rather be hated than just another fucking number in the system.

^ Yep. Russian and China in particular. Especially Russia. Like, geez, what is going on in Russia? >.>

Japanese players on the other hand are usually very polite. However, if its a pvp game, they can be pretty merciless and will use whatever overpowered equipment/skill combo is currently top dog. They're very nice about it mind you, but they have no quams about using the most ruthlessly effective/efficiency set up they can find even if its seen as cheap/exploitative in other communities. Although they won't outright hack or cheat ( That's Russia's job. -.- ).

Granted the bulk of my interaction with Japanese players has been through years of playing Souls games.

My only experiences playing with Aussie gamers were generally positive, but man if you want to see some trash talk play a game with both Aussies and New Zealanders at the same time.

They are less of a group project and more of a 1-2 man project doing the work of 5 people because the other fuckers are too lazy or too useless to contribute.

Ahah! Someone else who had this same experience and felt the same way!

Seriously, what the heck is wrong with some people? Group project does not mean "foist all work on the members who care about their grades."

And why did they professors always put me in a group of B to C range students when I was making straight A's before the bloody group assignment?!

Oh, right, on topic: It isn't just Americans and it's not just gaming communities. I do think the toxicity is a bit worse in American forums though.

The Americans aren't the problem, try playing with Russians on CS:GO.

Heh... 'more toxic than others' ... well, sure.

In 20 or so years of playing various online games, I'll grant you American communities are more toxic than others.

This does not, however, mean they are anywhere close to 'the most toxic.' It simply means they are not the LEAST toxic.

I've found the Scandinavian countries to be the least toxic. Followed by a few 'better than average' communities, which includes the American ones.

The worst, from my experience, are the Japanese, Korean, Brazilian, and Australian, actually.

(This is from someone who spends -far- to much time online playing MMOs)

We're Americans. We're raised to believe that we're better than the rest of the world and that everyone should follow us. On a subconscious level, people begin to apply this mindset to everything they do, even if it's something as simple as playing video games. It's quite sad.


Yeeep

i see plenty of Japanese let's play super mario maker levels, and i don't think i ever remember them raging at a tough level.
at most, they would say "wow, this level is very difficult". let's play by NA players, though, have people raging over "difficult" courses.
Japanese players seem a lot more patient, and i suspect this also applies to other games, such as mmorpgs. this would explain why in NA server, if you are new to the game, people will rage at you for making a mistake or taking your time in a party quest, while the same probably doesn't happen (with the same frequency) on Japanese servers.
