Well, you asked.
Rampant, unpunished lagers. REHOST 24/7 Self explanatory.
2.1. People blaming others (can take variety of forms, including insults) for their own low performance (happens).
2.2. Some 1+ k nobody treating lower rank players with neglect and disrespect. Usually goes something like this: you have 500 - you are nothing, but I have 1000 so I am the SUPREME COMMANDER.
2.3. Russian language in the mixed nationalities teams. LOL
2.4. "GIVE ME AN ENGINEER" text marker. To who? Leads to toxic reaction, therefore toxic.
2.5. Add your own example.
- Lobby Kicks - yes, this one, THE ONE.
People, who should not have the right to host games, are hosting games.
Some players create a lobby with Insufficient information in the lobby name.
For example: some host is convinced that all Australia players lag (NOT TRUE), does he write "ONLY EU" in the lobby name? No. So what? So, this: a player from Australia joins that lobby and waits, sometimes the host kicks him instantly (best scenario), sometimes the host waits till the lobby is full and only then kicks the Aussie.
Result: how would you feel when you have wasted your time just to get kicked with reason: SORRY (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!). LOL
One more example, because this point is THE ONE.
No "NO GRAYS" in the lobby name, grays join that lobby, they wait, they get kicked. But why they got kicked? Because some idiot host did not add "NO GRAYS" to the lobby name! Result? People are left with that special feeling of their wasted time. Real nice.
- CPU Snobs - this one is also HUGE.
Before I proceed to this one, to remove all prejudice, my CPU Score is 264. So I know what am I writing about.
Anyway... What's a CPU Snob? Well, CPU Snobs basically are people who are obsessed with the size of other player's CPU. You can compare them to dogs sniffing other dog's rears.
So what? Well, CPU Snobs are the number one TOXICITY source in the FAF.
More details, please. Okay.
4.1. Lobby name has no CPU limit. Player joins, waits, gets kicked, usual reasons: SORRY ; CPU ; SLOW - three separate reasons.
4.2. PLAYER WITH CPU 251 (FOR EXAMPLE) JOINS A LOBBY WITH NO CPU LIMIT, HE WAITS, THE HOST DOES NOT KICK, LOBBY GETS FULL, SOME OTHER PLAYER ASKS THE HOST TO KICK THE PLAYER WITH 251 CPU, THE SMART HOST KICKS THE PLAYER WITH 251 CPU.
DO YOU SEE THE SHIRE AMOUNT OF SHIT THAT IS PLAGUING THE FAF?
Some will say: what can be done, people are people?
True, just leave everything as it is ;D
In the cases of CPU the FAF itself is cultivating the DISCRIMINATING atmosphere, by providing the numerical CPU Score.
But we want to play without slow people - lame ass excuse.
CPU Score is seen as some smart innovative feature, lol.
Removing it is no solution, but tweaking it in a way that it does not cultivate CPU Snobbing is the way to go, developers may think otherwise, up to them.
Now, I might have missed something, but I think it is more than enough to get a clear picture of where the FAF is at regarding casual players.
Thank you all, friends and foes, it is fun playing the current best RTS with you.
Thank you Chris Taylor.
