Most game lovers can only shake their heads at the ever-evolving narrative of developers who put up with the aggressiveness of dissatisfied gamers. Yes, games allow you to emotionally connect with a character and immerse yourself in a virtual world. This is more difficult with other media, such as movies or series.
This emotion and emotion, as good as it can be and positive, can also turn out to be the exact opposite. But with all the feelings that you carry with you, you should not negatively affect others; Do not threaten or intimidate them. Instead, you should express your criticism objectively and calmly, because then you will be taken seriously.
Unruly and reckless rumors
It’s stupid that there are so many gamers out there who vent their hatred of a game feature, even the smallest, unfiltered, unpolished changes on the internet – and then go so far as to personally insult, insult and threaten game developers. This phenomenon has been publicly denounced by the developers for several months and years.
Has anything changed in the behavior of aggressive players so far? No it is not true. On the other hand, this can be seen from the fact that the debate between developers flares up again and again. And on the other hand, because it is even possible for developers to make comparisons between one game enthusiast and another. For example, Blizzard developer “Celestalon” Nervig could do something like this. He once worked on the World of Warcraft team (Buy now ), now upgraded to Hearthstone’s Features Lead. It speaks of impressive differences between the two societies, which fuels thought.
مشاكل العدوان مع المعجبين WoW؟
بصفتك معجبًا بـ World of Warcraft ، فأنت لا تريد حقًا قراءة شيء من هذا القبيل: “هناك الكثير من المواضيع مثل هذه تدور في الصناعة حاليًا حول مدى عدم قبول مطوري ألعاب المضايقات من اللاعبين. كل هذا صحيح. لقد واجهت الكثير منها في الوقت الذي قضيته في WoW ، من تهديدات الموت إلى اعتداءات جسدية. إنه أمر سخيف “، كتب نيرفيغ على تويتر ردًا على منشور من مطور Ubisoft زميل.
However, Celestalon also makes it clear that what you might encounter on the WoW team doesn’t have to be common. Since he turned to the developers of Hearthstone, no player in the trading card game community has attacked him as blatantly as in the times of the WoW Dev, according to Celestalon’s own words.
“Fortunately, while I’m very public and open (and even keep DMs open, which is relatively rare), I’ve experienced almost none of that at Hearthstone in Hearthstone. I’m grateful that the HS community treated me well enough that I feel comfortable with my openness,” he says. Celestalon. “Because I really love interacting with sensible players, hearing feedback, and engaging in dialogue where possible. My icy heart is glad to see the joy on the faces of the people I helped create.”
Nervig also spoke with BlizzardWatch co-founder and Adam Holsky on Twitter about a stark example; They both heard about a fellow developer who had to hire security guards to accompany him for some time. The reason behind this: Death threats were also made against the employee, which should be taken seriously.
As a “normal” person in games who is also happy when criticism is expressed as realistically as possible, it’s totally unbelievable to me why game developers, regardless of whether they’re working on WoW or another game, face so much hate when they don’t . t everything is running smoothly. Very few people would probably think of threatening a developer due to unwanted changes. I definitely didn’t threaten anyone with a beating just because the Shadow Priest in Wow lost his mana battery – and I hope none of you will either.
