    I don’t see the need to have those in LFG ads. “Hi” and “ty” can be done when people join the group which is what is the norm.

  • The norm half the players don't know apparently.

    Ty for what that you join said group?

    Were is your hi and ty for the person posting said group so you dident have to do it yourself?

    Edit
    If someone said hi when joining a group 95% of the players say hi, yo, hello or hey back.
    ty at end aint that common and why should it be you did stuff together as a team so no need to thank the others.

  • Draco.9480Draco.9480 Member ✭✭✭

    find your friends to say hi and ty.

    In LFG ads, "hi" and "ty" add unnecessary length. I usually run with a static group and when we occasionally need to fill a spot or two with PUGs, we always say hi and ty/thx/thx for the run/etc. Find that it relaxes the randoms and makes for a more pleasant experience. In any case, if you get into a silent group and they won't say anything/respond, look at them as a resource to exploit to get your goal done. You do not really need to think of them as people who are being unsociable, just think of them as NPCs with more complicated programming. :)

    Don't know what you're talking about. Most of the people I encounter ingame are really friendly and say hello and thank you. And who cares about the few that don't say those words? As long as we worked well together in a team, that's good enough for me. They don't need to thank me.

  • I always say hi at the beginning and thank you at the end. I say "hi" because this is an MMO with another human being behind each character, and I say "thank you" to express my appreciation for them joining the group; spending their time with me; helping me to complete a task that would have taken much longer if not out right impossible without their participation; and, because its just common courtesy. Unfortunately, not everyone can be bothered to express basic manners but most people seem to reciprocate. The GW2 community is a lot better than many other MMOs...just need to stay away from the toxic areas (aka pvp).

    As bad as this may sound, I am far more inclined to say "You are welcome" in pugs than thank anyone. A polite "Hello" is a different story.

    Interaction in this game is extremely awkward most of the time lol

    People join, they should say hi if they care, if they don't that's fine, but I won't say it first if it's my party. Especially in Fractals I encounter people who never communicate and if something fails they just silently diseappear lol

    Logging out forever.

    Somewhere along the line it became rare to actually communicate with other people in these multiplayer games. I don't know when or where but it happened sadly x.x

    Most People these days are unsocial to begin with, especially if you don't have or are yourself something they desire.

    That said it's probably much better in small communities when they know each other.

    "Hi" or "\o" always at joining - bb - have a nice day/evening/night ot "ty bb" when leaving and the group was decent to superior. Otherwise it's only "bb" and in some cases "np" if the run was awful and you had to play the carry bot.

  • I just like to be polite and say Hi and Thank you, but I understand that there a lot of players that just dont care about greetings, they just want to fractal done and go do something else, im cool with that.

    Back in the days of Anarchy Online mmorpg, PUG meant Player UnderGeared, meaning someone with low stats/level/skills/gear.
    In Guild Wars 2 is the 1st time I heard the term Pick Up Group.

    PUG is the general abbreviation for Pick Up Group though in the MMO-community; it's not exclusive to GW2.

  • Deepcuts.9740Deepcuts.9740 Member ✭✭✭

    I guess we played different mmorpgs back in the day.
    For lots of people, at least the ones I know, are my age and played AO (hint: prior to WoW) PUG was not Pick Up Group.
    But language change so I don't mind. I never use the phrase PUG anyways nowadays.

  • In my WoW days I always said Hi/Hello when the group started and 'Ty for the group' when the dungeon was finished. But I haven't done any dungeons in Gw2 yet lol.

    During a GW2 open word event I rarely say ty when I get ressed, not because I'm ungratefull but because I'm too busy staying away from (AoE)attacks and help getting downed others up. By the time I typed '/s ty! :)', and not paying attention to my surroundings, I'll be already downed again and they'll have to help me for a 2nd time hehe. I show my thanks and appreciation by keeping an eye out for downed players and ress them as well if possible.

    it takes them awhile to rez you tho so its fully possibly to say that while they are in the middle of reviving.

    Sorry I forgot the difference with helping up a downed player and truelly ressing someone. Helping getting you up is often very quick. If I'm really dead (as in travel to nearest waypoint) I don't bother people ressing me, I respawn at waypoint and get back into action asap.

    Good wo/man I would like if everyone did this sadly they dont.

    I usually say hi and thank you etc. in group content. But sometimes I am just not in the mood to talk. Doesn't mean that I am mad at them.

  • dusanyu.4057dusanyu.4057 Member ✭✭✭

    out of practice I will say hi and end with "Thanks for the group" out of strict politeness. but in the middle i don't say a thing

  • Jeknar.6184Jeknar.6184 Member ✭✭✭✭

    I'm here for the business, not for the chit chat. But I'll say hi if someone say hi. And I'll say ty if it was a smooth run.

    I say ty to my groups (after for example CM+T4s) if I felt everyone pulled their weight, if I feel like 1 or more people were heavily carried I usually leave without a word and try to forget the whole thing ever happened

    That's easy it started when people thought abrivations where good substitutes for dialogue. Heck just take a look at the title, sure space is limited but one could say using shorthands like "Hi" instead of "Hello" is every bit as lazy as not saying anything at all.

  • Turkeyspit.3965Turkeyspit.3965 Member ✭✭✭✭

    I always start my own LFG, and I never ever ever say 'hi' as people join the group.

    ...instead I say "welcome" :+1:

  • Its nice when people talk. i allways say 'thank you' after big events, and when im in a group 'hello' and 'thanks for the ride, have fun' when we are done.
    Also i respond when someone else asks somthing, of says something.
    i still do teq with sort of a fixed group of people that only meets at teq event at 20:00 and we all talk to each other about all sorts of things.

    I actually find it useful when people don't say hi. It lets me know that the group has no intention whatsoever to communicate or cooperate and that the run will most likely be horrible. If they don't say hello it allows me to leave immediately without wasting time or suffering through a failing run.

    PvP? What's that? Never heard of it.

  • I don't like typing pleasantries in chat.
    I may do a /wave, and I will usually do a /ty followed by a /wave after a fractal run. Emotes are more than enough for that.

    Also, holding such vacuous pointless filler is a good way to catch bad players that are likely to blame others for their own shortcomings and ragequit easily. I don't care for what people say as much as I care for what they do.

    If the party has 3 people with the same guild tag, or someone makes a big deal about you not saying "Hi", get out of there ASAP. They will likely ragequit or kick you to make room for a leeching friend of theirs.
