I know what you’re probably thinking – “Nak, don’t live in the past”. Ok then, I won’t...
But I have noticed that lately (and it’s starting to bother me tbh), players in general are really abrasive, and often for no good reason. Now I know this behaviour is not limited to Nagrand, but hear me out.
Could this be why (or at least one of the reasons why) Nagrand’s population is declining? I know it has been easy for people to turn around and blame Blizzard for this, that and the other, but I think it’s possible that there is something the players of Nagrand can do about it. Put simply, I think we need to work towards changing the culture of Nagrand to make people want to come here/stay here for their gaming experience. So how do we do this?
Work together more often. Stop automatically hating and/or being rude to fellow players. Give assistance to people who ask questions, not abuse and ridicule. Seek friendly and pleasant interactions with other players, and not be in a negative frame of mind all the time. These are just some of the ways.
Now I realise it is not possible to have every player being nice to others – it’s just not possible, unfortunately. People are people. But I often wonder if sometimes players get so caught up in this negative culture, that they don’t even realise they are ruining their own gaming experience, as well as others’.
I’d like to hear other people’s opinions and thoughts on this. I’d also like to just point out that if people do respond to this thread with posts of a ‘trolling’ nature, they will only be proving that Nagrand’s (and maybe even the game’s) positive culture could well be lost forever. I would hate to see the WoW community/Nagrand community end up like League of Legends's community (for example)...there's just no reason for playing when you're not having fun. I think that the game is at a point now where it's just not as fun unless the social aspect of the game is alive and well.
