Whatever happened to manners in this game? Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Now I may be abusing some game rule by posting this, but I'll just censor it and do it anyway:

X has taken a job with 'Plan B'.
X has come aboard.
Germy Kai has left the vessel.
X has left the vessel.
Typho says, "hello"
Cheeky Philip has come aboard.
X has left 'Plan B'.
Ye told X, "don't you know it's rude to use people as a whisk without asking?"
X tells ye, "I dont really care to be honest =\"
X tells ye, "Thanks for the tell though! :D"
Ye told X, "that's the problem with this game."
Ye told X, "no problem mate"
Ye told X, "just ask next time, some older players like me are a lot worse heh"
X tells ye, "Lmao dude im not gonna ask ever xD no point in trying to preach"
X tells ye, "Enjoy your day."
Ye have muted X.

I'm pretty sure I overreacted a little bit as I haven't played in ages, and I'm not sure if asking to borrow a whisk is still common courtesy, but I was a bit taken aback by his/her response.

So because one pirate was rude, all manners are gone from the game?

I've been away for two years, and started with the Beta. Things are as they've always been. Rude and immature players will always happen, but they're a lot harder to find if you surround yourself with experienced and polite players.

I think this is the time to resurrect the "remove the doubloon cost from whisking potions" thread.

An established player basing the entirety of the game's population on one person in regards to manner.

Seems pretty rude to me.

I know, I shouldn't be berating you, but it just irks me that people make such blanket statements like this.

I agree, Germy Kai is rather uncouth to just leave the vessel with nary an utterance.

So you made a thread about all the bad manners? :( S/he even told you to enjoy your day, seems somewhat polite.

Everyone has their rude streaks, it's well known and playing any game, you'll get the odd ones who are a lot worse than this.

Aye. But to be fair it is possible that she suddenly died. She didn't look at all well.

This isn't one player though. I've seen alot o' players like that. Every time I host a pillage, I run into 2 or 3 of them.

Only thing you can do is mute them, and hunt their character down, informing the captain o' ship their on that they're bad players, and watch as they try to yell at you but can't because their mute lol.

Or just mute them and leave it at that. <.<

I've played this game across 3 accounts across 5 years. They are alot ruder now. But you can't really fix it.

Man, you are just an unlucky soul, aren't you?

I've actually never had this happen on any pillies I've run. *shrug*.

Maybe you just need to think POSITIVE so good things will happen to you. Doom and Gloom is soooooo last year.

Cause you know, you think positive, bad people stop coming... cause the game works like that <.<

I like to think that action gets good things done, not thinking of any kind. As for those jobbers, you've had plenty, just don't know it because guys are more likely to notice jerks. (Proven through centuries of female relationships lol. But joking aside, guys notice jerks easier. How our brains work as a defense against other man that could be threatening.)

The problem is obviously that you were pillaging. I don't get these jobbers because I don't pillage.

Well now, this thread seems to get some interesting answers :D - and that's a sarcastic grin.

There has always been people that are rude and just looking for other people to abuse/use. There always will be. You can mute them and ignore from the moment on. You can also try to adjust yourself to accept it and let those moments pass.

What I wouldn't personally recommend you to do is memorizing those players and go after them, especially if the point would be trying to stalk them and cause harm intentionally - it isn't mature, effective neither is it really within the rules of the game.

Ivy is sort of right, by the way - eventually, if you're a nice fellow, you will be surrounded with nice fellows. Probably because you've got all the rotten apples muted and you've built up a good reputation which leads into the situation where your name on the noticeboard gets people jobbing for you only because it is you and they know it'll be fun.

I should PM sizzly all my answers to remove my tarty nature and articulate my thoughts.

Positive people attract positive reactions, attract the good nature of people and good natured people.

I do run pillages, not as frequent as I should, but often enough to be a pillage navver. I'm no paragon, but the worst jobbers I have are those who have to go after the battle, and most of them tell me.

Maybe because I don't just chat ''hello'' or order them to a station. Talking to people - people, not machines - helps.
