What's with people and arguing in BC2 servers?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I have only noticed this on the PC so far. Yesterday in the BC2 lobby I was in, 6 guys were arguing whether or not the GTX 560 Ti is a better GPU than the Radeon HD 6950. The fight lasted 2 hours, and the 2 guys who were Nvidia fanboys were part of the clan who hosted the server. They called up the Admin and got the AMD guys kicked and banned. Then the Admin and the Nvidia fanboys talked about how much they hated AMD fanboys so much and that they wanted to bomb AMD HQ... Seriously people?

Now today, another group of people were arguing about which headset is best for FPS Gaming. The fight lasted another hour and there were threats flying everywhere.

What the hell is wrong with these kinds of people? If this continues, the PC Gamer's image will be turned into "Nerds fighting over PC components" like Xbox Live's is "12 year old kids who think a 3.0 k/d means something in real life".

Do you guys see things like this too, and don't you find it extremely irritating?

I don't take anything a fanboy says seriously, and neither should you. There's idiot fanboys in both console gaming and pc gaming. If someone bases their final opinion on something because of a few idiot fanboys, then they're mistaken.

Comming from someone who jumps to different servers dailys, yes you are going to get your handful of idiots who want to make themselfs known be either causing arguments or just spuring insults. However I've also played on plenty of servers that are friendly and have none of this. I think maybe your just playing on the wrong servers, find a good server and favourite it then keep returning to it when you fancy a peaceful game.

What I usually set my settings to is Hardcore only, don't show full servers, don't show empty servers, and Conquest only.

I don't know, the majority of servers I join are filled with imbeciles. There are some really nice servers though, but I don't really favorite servers so I don't really rejoin them (although I might start doing that now). At least it isn't like Xbox Live where 12 year old kids fight about their K/D and how popular it makes them in school.

that's pretty ridiculous.

Its just people who put too much of their ego/identity into inanimate things (computers, video cards, Apple, cars, motorcycles).... its pretty common, especially given America's massive consumer culture.

Looking on the bright side its probably better than people arguing over religion or getting involved in extremist politics.

People form tribes as a hold out from our pre civilization days. Ever see two sport fanatics of differing teams argue, it's no different.

You think you have it bad go and download combat arms and just listing and see people talk/type crap to each other about nothing. on every single sever LOL

and plus i get call a hacker and get kick 99% of the time when i have a good day and when i have a good day i am stupid beastly na just joking but i am kinda decent when i have a good day

But anyways i never in-canter any people arguing since i been playing hell people don't even talk much on the pc anyway like xbox/ps3 players dose but i guess that comes down on what servers your playing and the type of people playing against
