    Default Warfront chat - on of off?

    So, I turned off warfront chat a month ago and I must say, I enjoy the games far more than before as I don't see all the complaining and personal attacks that are unfortunately too common. I also don't get drawn into this negative atmosphere either. I initially tried to just place folks on ignore as I came across them, but there were too many.

    Now, I do miss the discussion of strategy, helpful communication and even the genuine appreciation and thanks. I try to compensate for some of these by increasing my situational awareness of people's location and the objectives.

    Overall, I enjoy the games more now. Anyone else turn off chat? To each their own, but I suggest giving it a try if you are getting drawn into the negative banter or if it's impacting your enjoyment.

    Just learn to laugh at the QQ and you won't have to miss the important stuff if there is any.

    It makes losing games much more enjoyable.

    If you need help doing this, the most basic technique is to imagine said individuals are around the age of 8, and are complaining to mom.

    Like so:
    "But ma, she said I had to be the robber"
    "I was the robber last time!"
    "No you weren't"
    "yes huh"
    "nu-uh"
    "well I'm going to be a princess"
    "then I'm superman"
    Mom:"there's no superman or princesses in cops and robbers"
    *angry temper tantrum until game ends*

    Basically the format of every WF argument in a nutshell.

    Would depend on my mood. Sometimes I'd leave it off.

    But sometimes I had to leave it on for team morale support.

    "We are up against a premade, this is hopeless."

    "Guys, guys! Just pretend we all grouped before we ended up in this warfront and we got this."

    LOL - I have tried something similar to your suggestion and it does indeed help. But as anyone who spends a lot of time around kids will confirm, incessant squabbling, even between kids, can get tiresome.

    I also try empathy, as who knows, perhaps that person had a super horrible day and they are venting...

    But sometimes the anonymity of the Internet just brings out the worst in folks...
