Older player (57) etiquette question.

Question

When another player stands in front of me and does the "up and down" thing ....what does that mean? I can understand if I lay on the ground dying, one would say: "well, he was t-bagging you, Bob." But that's not it. It was after a sortie rescue. Lua, no less, and we were waiting on the platform to extract when a Rhino approached me and did " the thing". Now, am I insulting people when I don't do "the thing" in return? Or should I just do "the thing" when somethig really good happens? Like the 1st try on a Lua rescue sortie. Thanks in advance for explaining "the thing" to an old Tenno fart.

il y a 10 minutes, Xzorn a dit :

My friends are complete trolls. We used to spend the first 30 min of an endless mission trying to get each other killed.

I have fond memories of the old farms in akkad where a vauban would cover the drop in room in bouncepads and make bouncy castles. 

Or the void runs in which the objective was to duel others by getting rad proced with the lasers. 

 

But particularly on this bit, i guess it's fair to at least try and give the enemies a fighting chance. Not like in that time frame they have any hope of doing the work themselves XD

Ah he's a young pup! Great to see you asking questions though. As a fellow old guy I am always curious when someone leaves the group as soon as we start - did I do something wrong? I mean none of us have really done anything yet......

People sometimes leave for the most random of reasons. In addition to those previous ones, some people will also just avoid being in a party with certain frames at all costs. Some frames that I've heard that people will auto-leave on are as follows:

  • Limbo (Probably the most common 'offender')
  • Nyx
  • Nova
  • Vauban
  • Ember
  • Mesa
  • Saryn
  • Gara
  • Garuda
  • Volt

The reasons for these all range, but in all cases, it's due to their own perception/beliefs, and has nothing to do with you whatsoever. Hope it helps further explain that. Everything else everyone has also said are also reasons.

I do all kind of silly S#&$ waiting at evac if the rest of the team is slower or if i did a few runs with the same people. 

The crouch dance is kind of a budding ritual. As in i acknowledge you as a worthy fellow tenno. 

 

The moment i don't do that is when you gotta start thinking about your wrongdoings.

Was there maybe an Octavia around? Because then, tea bagging becomes a stealth tool 😛 

But yeah, it was most likely just a greeting / "yo we did it good job bruh" thing.

Can be a number of things, personally if I do it, its for one of a couple of reasons. I forgot to change to invite/friends only or I have the wrong setup/frame.

It's saying hey.

It can be saying, "I like something about your play-style or fashion frame."

I like your Octavia song.

Hey, I'm having a good time. etc, etc. etc.

Generally they're happy.

 

Polite to respond in kind.

No, no Octavia in the squad. I do it myself for her invis. So it was just Rhino being happy/friendly. Ok, that clears it up. Thanks for the help everyone.

This thread makes me feel young at 43! 

Definitely seems to be an older player base on Warframe. It's nice.

OP, I tea bag as a greeting all the time. I don't care for chat or text much so it's  the best way to say hello!

... That's... Someone confusing a bowel breakdown with a mental breakdown. I wouldn't worry about it, and I strongly suggest not to do the same.

 

Game has emotes to be used, two or three of which are meant to greet other players. When someone does that, assume that they're either making fun of you (in case you're participating in the Conclave), being annoying 'till no end (which has no game mode limits) or confusing a bowel injected mental breakdown (which is usually more frequent than credits being dropped)...

 

... It can also mean something else, but I believe its too offensive to even mention it here, since minors can read the forums just fine...

Its what people do while waiting. I like to start crouch walking around and hope someone else joins and make a train. Usually it works.

T-bagging, as an insult, happens only if you are down (waiting for revive / dead) and someone is doing the "up and down" thing right above your body to show dominance.

If someone is doing a "up and down" gesture in front of you, it's usually just a greeting if not drawing your attention.

This is a common gesture developed from games without convenient in-game chat or emotion.  It happens a lot in such games and the polite way to answer is "up and down" back.

I prefer to spam fireworks and make it a spectacle.

mmh, if you aren't dead, 'teabagging' is then pretty much universally either 'hello' (or sometimes checking if someone is AFK i guess) or 'the friendly dance'.

(to elaborate, 'friendly dance' usually comes from PvP games, usually ones with no Teams and are totally Free For All - the 'friendly dance' is a check whether someone has hostile intentions against you, generally if someone intends to be hostile, they won't do said 'dance' if you look at them since it's generally a tactical disadvantage.)

Its more of a "Yo!".

Since  people rarely talk in this game. Its can be a greeting or doing for the funsies. Either case, normally more people join in.

If you are doing fissures some people enter random missions, check if the other 3 players have a relic they are interested in, if not, they leave. Otherwise i sometimes leave when doing sorties and i don't notice it's a spy until already in game, so i leave and set mission on solo. Some even quits if the other players have very low mr.
