Hi Everyone, before I begin I want to preface the following.
I am not a perfect person,
-I've been toxic
-I am not perfect
I don't want to come of that way, especially as I don't plan on coming back here anytime soon. I'm gonna talk about my time with xG, if your not interested. Don't read it, I don't care.
I joined xG in early 2017, as a suede-toxic idiot, who didn't hesitate to argue, some might still call me that. As much as I disagree to that, they have the right to their opinion. I eventually tried to go for member, and after that failed, I changed my act a bit, and eventually got member. I've only been in TF2, and the Discord regarding xG Over the almost 2 years I've been here, this is what I have to say:
While this was more true in the past compared to now, TF2 administration is a roll of the dice, sometimes people will get muted for a phone ringtone going off the backround, or maybe their mic isn't the best quality, regardless, mutes are questionable to say the least.
Arguments on mic will often get one of the two parties muted, what decides who's muted? Not how right someone, how toxic they are, etc. It's how close one is to the admin, as an example, a man simply said he liked a map, someone (a member on the server) started yelling at them, not only saying they hated the map, but the person as well, for no other reason then they liked the map, when an admin was called, the former was muted, because he asked to rtv to that map, and when he asked why he was muted he was gagged. While I'm not gonna name names because I don't want to start conflicts with the ladder again, this behavior wasn't limited to then. One time I was muted when I never spoke, I was then unmuted, when the admin realized that it was simply voices in his own house.
When it comes to the discord, the toxicity is off the charts, however, once again, I won't name names. Like mentioned before though, the rule of "whoever the admin knows better wins the argument" is still here as well.
Admins following rules:
-Admins commonly abuse power, never game breaking (without a vote at least),but regardless it's a problem.
-(While this is less of a problem now) Admins quite frequently had lewd sprays that were disgusting, and wouldn't censor some extremely lewd, or outright disgusting sprays, because "they didn't show anything."
-Admins will sometimes forget their tags, causing many people to be confused.
"Your a member! And your a member!"
The requirements to become a member a minimal, and it feels like anyone can get it if they put a seconded of effort (myself included).
I'd love to write more, but I gotta go. As much as I love going on the maps, and hanging out with the people on the servers, it's just not worth being here anymore. Also, remember how I said I wouldn't name names? Well, I figured that since I'm leaving, (at least for now), I might as well just give a quick final statement to people, so enjoy.
