Make NPP's have better parlor manners. Reply to this Post

Sounds silly, I know, But as alot of greenies learn the puzzles, they play the NPPs either by chance, or in the missions. After you beat them they exit the game quickly and use one of their random swabbie phrases, often logging off right now. I think that if they were programed to say "Well fought", "Great match matey Yarrrr", or "Good game" after a match it might improve the sportsmanship of the greenies on the oceans.

I'll second that.
The habit of tournament opponents to exit the game before I can even type 'gg' is disheartening.

People leaving is better than harsh words coming back. Some people leaving might have a bad streak of luck and do not want to hear anything. Let them be.

Not everyone thinks that "gg" is polite. I know that I personally don't care about the game I just finished, it's the next one that's important, and in a tournament, unless you won, there's every reason to ditch the puzzle fast - You want to check your next opponent out, and you've only got 30 seconds a lot of the time.

Please try to keep in mind that not everyone who doesn't spout off two letters that lengthen themselves is a bad sport. Some of us are fixated on something else. The adrenaline rush of the next fight. I actually find good game to be insulting.
