A quick reminder about trash talking

Postby KDSonoma » Thu Jul 26, 2018 3:06 pm

I wanted to take a few minutes to remind everyone about the PAS rules on trash talking.

I know there are times in a game like UO where our players get frustrated. This happens mostly in pvp, and it's human nature. Especially if you feel that another player is using a cheat ingame to kill your character.

But here's the deal. PAS members are not allowed to trash talk other players ingame. if someone blurts out something ingame infrequently, we understand. But we do expect our members to make real efforts not to let things slip. Please don't trash talk ingame. Especially don't trash talk in general chat or in public areas like banks where other players overhear the talk.

Remember, there will be many players in Sonoma that may only meet one other PAS member ingame in their gameplay. They will judge our entire guild based on that one interaction. If they witness a PAS trash talking, they will assume we all trash talk. If they witness a PAS helping another player, they will assume we all help other players. That's human nature to assume.

Trash talking reduces us to the levels of the griefers that we stand against. We are the good guys. And we need to act like it whenever possible. We aren't saints, but we are the good guys.

Let the cheaters cheat. They will eventually get caught and banned. Have faith in the folks that run UO that they will police the cheaters out of the game. Give them time and be patient.

And remember, dying is a way of life in UO. Especially in fel. Just enjoy the fact that you can play a game that allows you to do so many unique things. And so what if we get killed from time to time ingame? Be a good loser when you die in pvp, and be a gracious winner when you kill a red in pvp. It makes the game more fun, and others will respect you for that.

If anyone has any questions about this, pm me or get with me in a private discord chat.
