I just want to firstly thank all the nice people who I have played against and with. My gripe is this when playing in a team there is always one bloke in my team who thinks he can hurl verbal abuse towards me which apart from being rude is really annoying. I ask why does he not verbally abuse other teammates? I tell you why because they are male. Perhaps cowards like this think it is fun to bully women? It's rather ironic really as Im usually a higher level and better player than them er der thats why Im a higher level. So do us ladies a favour get over yourself pull your heads out from your backsides and accept gender equality and try listening instead of barking orders that usually cost the team the game, you just might learn something. Any other ladies had this problem? There is a solution just blacklist, Thankfully there are loads of nice grownups which will not deter me from playing. So if you read this and you see me do me a favour just don't say anything bullies usually lose.
or when you get verbally abused report them and try listening to orders you might just learn a thing or two im not saying women are worse im saying you have played only around 600 games and believe it or not you still have some things to learn
The point is they don't do it to other men just to women, I agree it's rather irrelevant levels statistics etc every game is different and with different randomness. You presume that I don't listen but you are wrong I actually ask for direction communicate what my intentions are backup transfer I am an active team member maybe not the best player by any means, do you really bother checking out statistics? There are many reasons why statistics are the way they are for example someone spammed me loads of warlight games an America template and it wouldn't let you decline the game so the only option to get rid of them was to surrender. I think there was about 20 of the buggers.Other members had to do the same that is just one instance. If I play a member that is obviously learning knowing I can prob win them I don't what's the point in that I teach them what I know and we play several games together just for practice, talk over strategies. Those are just a couple of examples. There are many different ways to get your point across and it doesn't have to be rude. I'm just glad I found the blacklist button. Following in the vein of quantumn theory you create your own reality and what you include in that is up to you. I just want to play nice people thanks who just enjoy the game, no need for nastiness at all.
No you can't I was talking to another member Probowler this morning Re America template and he was having the same problem. The same games maybe it's a glitch but there def wasn't the option to decline.
Suzi - Levels mean nothing. Stats mean nothing as well. Levels are way to dependent on how active the player is, and they MASSIVELY FAVOR people who play lottery games and big FFAs.. Statistics are vulnerable to easy pumping by playing games with low prerequisites, or on unusual templates.. I'd say the only ways to measure skill are competitive tournaments and simply looking and analyzing games the players in concern had played.
As for verbal abuse and bullying - maybe you met an asshole, or maybe he was just a good player frustrated by your bad moves.. I do get frustrated sometimes when i play alongside with random people..
As for a lady on the site - WELCOME! there's way to few girls in here, but i must admit some have some serious skills eg. Summer (aka Rosa). I believe you will be able to learn the game some more to join the top WL gals hall of fame. But it will take time. trust me - you're nowhere near yet.
Well Suzi it just happens you met some real assholes and douchebags. Good thing you don't let that discourage you from playing.you can always report the guys to fizzer(game creator) which could lead to their suspension or banning.Or you could rid of traces of gender from your account and let the sexists be unsure whether you are male or female(if you want).
Hahahaha I agree with Emily feminists can be awkward and you are right I suppose some people are just awful. I feel better knowing I'm not the only one who gets abuse just seems such a shame. and really there is no need for it. Thanks for your responses feeling better about it now. My partner sits opposite me and he hardly ever comes across a nasty mind you when he does he is ever so nice to them ;0) but then he is a darling. So if you see me in a game let's talk strategy, you will find me more than willing. There is always more to learn and better ways of doing things winning is the destination but playing is the journey....
there are lots of jerks everyone online--the anonymity brings out the worst in some people. i don't think at all that this is confined to verbal abuse vs. women. please report abusive or offensive language and simply blacklist the offenders so you won't be subjected to them again. i use the custom notes for everyone i blacklist so i can recall exactly why i blacklisted them. it takes some time but its worth it.
