As you told, many thing are out of individual control, because ability matters less than party compositions, in general.
Its hard to feel any motivation for competition, positive or negative.
So i imagine this kind of bickering, and it gives me 0 will to enter it.

I've been in and out of ranked since season 2. It has ALWAYS been like this. I don't know how people can be surprised at how toxic some people are anymore. Water is wet too in case you weren't aware.

The error is clearly related to Bioware. I also play PVP in other MMOs, everywhere you can report insults and threats at the click of a mouse. Here you can only report spam.

And indeed, in Guild Wars 2, for example, the tone is much less toxic.

If, as in WoW, it only serves as an alibi function but no action is taken, it does not help much.

The PVP gaming community is everywhere the same, mostly masculinistic and sexist, Especially Bioware and EA, who feel committed to the rights of the Queer community would need to take action against it.

Estimated time to rage message in regs is far longer. I'm on a less populated server though. Most of the poopyheads languish in Ops/FPs there though, where even not hammering away on the space is a hate crime and punishable by poorly written insults and possibly a kick.

That and I'm a one and done player. PvP is basically a break activity so I never catch much flak as I'm not completely terrible but I'm not very good either.

The time you play it is a factor, home time for timmy(school end) is a bad time to play as is late at night as that is when the cheeto munching simpletons emerge. They mostly come out at night.....mostly.

If an operative wins vs 2 players in acid he really deserves the win. He must be much better than those he just "trolled". Try it yourself and you will see that you cannot win acid against two players of the same skill level.
