I’m relatively new but I see storms on the horizon. DE can right the ship but it’s trending towards a more toxic playerbase. I believe because:
1. Games with traditionally toxic playerbase are dying. Games like fortnite and world of Warcraft, especially wow, are hemorrhaging players. It’s funny because friends I know who play FF14 are also reporting increased toxicity as the old daycare games are losing players. I’ll admit I’m a wow refugee but I like Frost and Chroma too much which leads to
2. The DPS meta is toxic as well and needs changing. It’s too limiting on frames people can bring without being yelled at by ultra efficiency players (the most toxic of all imo, I’d know I was one in wow) and pressured to play frames you don’t want to because “meta!!!” That’s on DE to fix, and I get that they are working on other things but please DE, do a history search on this kind of stuff in online games and fix it before it’s too late.
