WoW-Dev tells: Some fans have an aggression problem – bad!

WoW WotLK Classic: Brann Bronzebeard in Ulduar

Most gamer fans can only shake their heads at the constantly evolving narratives of developers enduring the aggression of dissatisfied gamers. Yes, gaming allows you to emotionally connect with a character and immerse yourself in a virtual world. This is much more difficult with other media, such as films or series.

This emotionality and passion, as good and positive as it can be, can also turn into the complete opposite. But with all the feelings that you carry with you, they should never affect other people negatively; do not threaten or frighten them. Instead, you should express your criticism objectively and calmly, because then you will be taken seriously.

Unbridled and thoughtless rumgerante

It’s just stupid that there are many gamers who unload their hatred of a game feature, even the smallest changes, unfiltered and unembellished on the Internet – and then even go so far as to personally insult, insult and threaten game developers. This phenomenon has been publicly denounced by developers for several months and years.

Has anything changed in the behavior of aggressive players so far? No not true. On the one hand, this can be seen from the fact that the discussion among the developers flares up again and again. And on the other hand, because it is even possible for developers to draw comparisons between the fans of one game and the other. Blizzard’s developer Chadd “Celestalon” Nervig, for example, can do something like this. He once worked on the World of Warcraft team (buy now ), he’s now promoted to Hearthstone’s Features Lead. And he reports on impressive differences between the two communities, which give food for thought.
