@Jet_7227 I like it when it's two good players battling all game...but yeah the teams of 2 to 4 that ruin the lobby and taunt to boot are toxic. I'm a no taunt, gg kind of guy until I see this stuff then I go into * mode. With bots and the difficulty to team switch I have been seeing much less toxic stuff in games.

The groups that do this have it pretty bad offline and just use it as an escape.  I personally love running into these folk and wish there were more accommodating quotes that suited what I really want to say.  Like “That taste won’t wash out”.

@GormeyKnow what you mean - there was often a different feel about taunts from "frenemies" for want of a better word, but I think that often came about through a (sometimes grudging! 🤣) mutual respect for your opponent. The current climate of lobby-ruiners is a different thing altogether, I think.

I agree with @dwooten77 that many of those indulging in that kind of toxic behaviour are releasing frustrations / unhappiness irl, but there's also an increase in kids / young adults behaving in that way who don't have issues - it's an aggressive way of gaming that's come to be seen as the norm because of the way these things are set up. With BFN being aimed at a younger playerbase than most multiplayer shooters, I think it could be doing more to encourage a better way of gaming.

I like the idea of being able to "mute" or skip the post-vanquish emotes / speech of the opposition but still think there are a few expressions that should just be removed altogether.

 

Added: And the sometimes toxic feel of the public Giddy Park servers needs addressing in some way too - perhaps it could be lessened if abilities were disabled throughout the hub, for example?

@QasMeister I'm not surprised that there are so many toxic players. I strongly believe part of the toxicity comes from the game itself. Its doesnt work very well as a casual game, and it definitely doesn't work competitively, and it just makes players mad. So many problems with the core gameplay elements that i can't even turn my brain off without complaining about something. Reminds me of videos of people's experiences with league of legends.
