I can't speak for console, but the NA PC community I find to be full of little pockets of awesome people kind of floating in a morass of rude, thoughtless, entitled, snotty, aggressive, just plain nastiness. You have to find the awesome ones and kind of hunker down, ignore zone chats in ANY area but especially the newbie areas and Craglorn and above all Cyrodiil, just don't even have zone chat turned on. Avoid hanging out in bigger cities if you don't have to, that's where the bored people who just want to start trouble tend to collect. Don't react to griefers, it just encourages them. Wayshrine to get away from mudball griefers and don't talk to or about them lest they figure out where you are and follow you.
I've met quite a lot of great people in this game and made new friends I hope will be lifelong ones. But compared to the two other MMOs I've played, this game's community in general is shockingly toxic. Not even the PvP bullies that scared me away from PvP for good in another game can compare to what I see on a daily basis in both PvE and PvP in this one.
The forums are more toxic than the game itself. And the forums used to be worse than they are now ... they're actually less poisonous now than they were over a year ago, thanks to (I suspect) better moderation.
I hear lots of complaints of people saying this game has a toxic community and aside from pve elitist (that ive rarely encountered ) and competitive pvpers ive never known this game to have anything but a friendly helpful community atleast on ps4. what are your opinions ?
You know you don't have to be here right?
