Forum Toxicity and Passive Aggressiveness

This is about the forums/community so I assume it's fine in general discussions.

The toxicity and passive aggressiveness Is draining me, I'm tired of it, it wares me out, I know I am guilty of this such thing, as I assume most of us are, we are human, if we feel verbally attacked then we get defensive, everyone is toxic to each other on these forums, you could be minding your own business and someone will attack you for no reason, it needs to stop. We are all star wars and Battlefront fans, we should be able to get along without fighting, we all have different opinions and like to play different ways, but we can still have civilised discussions. So I make this post to ask and remind everyone to respect each other, to not be so toxic and passive aggressive towards each other, and as an apology to anyone that I have been toxic towards. That Is all.

    I just can’t be positive any more. I pretty much abandoned this place. People just want to repeat their garbage over and over and don’t care about valid arguments. Lore over balance and all that dumb c-word. It really gets on my nerve.

    The insightful thing is the dumbest thing. "I so need a way to downvote you!" "I could ignore your post or I could write a nice counter, but no, i need a button! Cause I'm 12!"

    These are the same people that like to go around correcting spelling on mobile applications as if that makes them a phD 8n English history or some ****

    Yeah I agree, there also needs to be lol or a disagree button since that is what insightful is used for. OP does have a point there about it being passive aggressive, if people are continuously pressing it without offering any counter points or because they got their sensibilities hurt.

    It ultimately doesn't mean anything there's even badges connected to it so whatever.

    I understand where you are coming from if you have a different opinion about a hero in this game that person who disagrees tends to reply by being rude and making out you are an **** or rubbish at the game for not sharing the same opinion. Doesn't always happen most people are fine but I've seen it happen multiple times

  • People got a lot of things going on in their life. We just see the veneer of that. In my experience, the most toxic people actually have a real low opinion of themselves. They take it out on you and me because it is a safe bet for them. We can change the culture here by staying positive. We can’t change them. They have to make that choice. All we can do is try to offer a better alternative by treating each other with respect and try to aspire to being better. Some people think that is weak and maybe it is. I find when a person treats others with respect it is actually a sign of strength and confidence. They don’t need to belittle others to build themselves up because they have the confidence to know that they are making the world a more positive place even if its just a little bit. I am not a pacifist and i don’t believe in turning the other cheek as some of you know i can snap too. I do try though and i hope that counts for something lol

    Noble effort. Won't work, though. I've seen enough in these forums to know that anyone who even slightly disagrees with someone's personal view of the game (and it's usually someone who just hates DICE with a passion but refuses to quit playing the game) will spend hours slamming the person and spamming the "insightful" button like it does something. They're like walking replicas of the stereotypical 80s bully with the letterman jackets and cheerleaders.

    It's best to just let it go, they're not really worth anyone's effort. Like you said, it's toxic behavior. In the end, it only reflects who they really are as a person. I wouldn't even bother learning the names of people like that in real life, let alone here, haha. Anyone who tries to drag you down like that isn't worth the effort.

    Just keep being positive :) Never let someone take away your smile.

    do you actually look at someone who clicked insightful on your post as a 50s bully who just showed you into a locker :D

    Kamino -> Mos Eisley -> Death Star II -> Kessel -> Jabba's
  • I've heard exactly what I expected, the toxic ones, the passive aggressive ones, and the ones who try to have some respect.

    So a typical day on the forms then?

    Not really sure which category I was lumped in with, they’re all good fun forum members in my experience, so could you please clarify?

    Wait, being insightfulled is a bad thing? I thought thirteen people actually thought that I'm a wise and insightful person. I guess that explains why it seemed so odd to me :P

    I've also given insightfuls but only because I thought the person was actually being insightful. Oops.
