LOL. Hope poor soul didn't hang himself because rest of empire forces lack the discipline, training and gear to compete in warzones haha.

You can't judge how good a player is from random clips in WZ fighting not so bright, skilled, aware, or communicating players - you name it. Until we get some form of arena 3v3, 4v4 or 5v5, it will be hard from 8v8 games to tell if someone is pro or just carried away by enemy players or his own team - not aimed personally at you Xinarika, is a general statement.

Same as in wow peeps made amazing "skill" videos from BGs doing 1vs3 and capping a node - which still has good entertaining value, not until arena tournaments did we see what player, players, and teams are really at the top of the game.

Is same here. So everyone hold your judgement at least until 8v8 rated WZ comes, and then if players will put out videos with voiceover (vent / skype w/e is very important part), beating other premades that play on same level, then you can say yeah dude X and Y player are amazing, and their team totally outplayed or countered Z team tactics etc.

But when you see a KC shadow and a healer holding a node vs 3-4 imps - it has entertaining value, it has, but is not a showcase of skill, you couldn't have died either of you unless each started running in oposite ways lol

The only thing you can do is ignore them, that's all. Reacting like you did will just make them harass you more.
Outdoing them is more fun, i can turn pretty much any smack talk anyone says in game and make them look foolish, it's quite easy as i have had years of practice.

You are right of course, competitive pvp games have always had players smack talking about their enemies. I think this is more a problem for a pve/pvp combination game where pve players who occasionally pvp take these things quite personally. Most long-term pvpers are quite immune to this crap, 8 years of DAoC and 10 of Counterstrike/UT drummed this out of me, i actually enjoy smack talk aimed at me now, it's flattering someone takes the time to pm me and it's quite funny

The oddest thing is often if you trash talk back (have to point out i never instigate this, but i do love to retalliate) and have some good exchanges you'll wind up best of frienemies and often smack talk each other whenever you meet. I realise this isn't everyone's experience and i understand how hurtful it can be to be stalked in an online game, but for those of us who have been at it for a long time, it's really water off a ducks back.

And yes, we say mean things. And yes, we think your failures are funny.

The point is you're focusing on what we say when the real problem is your lack of skill/teamwork.

Focusing on our comments instead of your "gameplay issues" just continues the cycle.
Although I don't play on your server, I'd like to point out that a premade criticizing a PUG's lack of teamwork is like a NBA team making fun of a pick up team in a high school gym.

This thread's still alive O_O! Just adding my 2c here:

I LOVE how these imps act like they don't trash talk at all.


Quite hilarious if you ask me, considering I've had one of you logged over to tell me that they'll shoot my kneecaps out. (lol?)

I'm not sure if it was you but thought it was. My apologies if I'm wrong in advance but didn't you link a video that showed the difference in ability damage between popping a Rakata power stim vs an expertise adrenal?

If so, can you link it again?

If not, my apologies for the confusion.

It's not as bad as some of these folks are making it out to sound. Then again, it is a war, right?

I trash talk all the time, on both sides of the aisle.

I've actually made some friends from it, so I must not be that good at it?
