    This guy was so low-vibration that I felt myself developing an afinity for climbing trees and picking nits off my team-mates.

    This deserves a T-Shirt.

  • The strange thing I find is people will rage whisper me and then block me before I have even replied. Like I am pretty chill in WvW these days. I mostly just farm pips on outnumbered maps. Don't really care about fights or PPT and will leave people be as long as they don't attack me.

    Block people and lose my daily dose of Salt being sent my way? NEVER!

    The only people in my block lists are gold sellers (Most problably long gone) and one certain dude that went crazy (literally) and I simply couldn't stand him bothering me all the time.

    Were you playing at night time? It's usually the Nocturnal players who are overwhelmed with Lunacy, right?

    While I do get my Nocturnal doses of salt, that's not the guy I have blocked. The person in question actually was diagnosed with mental instability and is currently taking meds to control it. Quite a sad tale, really... He used to be a cool guy.

    I might pre-block players before 1v1ing them, simply in case I'd want to fight them again, so I can check the block list if they're still on the same border as I am.

    Just my sneaky way of keeping track of my enemies.

    I know... I could add them to friends, but that feels way too fan-boyish.

    I have no-one on my block list, this allows me to say GG to someone on the enemy team when we've had a good evening. Yes I actually do that without saltiness. Had a thief in zerg fights where we were trying to shut down each others casters while preventing each other doing so, was a fun few fights and said GG afterwards as a show of respect.

    i usually get confused when i get whispered 'gg' . i never know if it is sarcastic or not.

    read this, become a better player now.

    Yeah but in your case it's because you play very unfun builds to fight xD

  • I only have a very few on my block list and that's when we are linked together with certain servers, however I have enemies block me all the time even when I COMPLIMENT their playing...I don't fully understand it

    Salty Whispers from little kids or juvenile adults are bread and butter in this game.

    I've been on the receiving end - met this Mithril Condi DD who would lay traps and run into the nearest tower/camp or run away when I got close and chase me when I turned away and when he had others with him. Later I ran by him doing nothing, turned around and he ran into the camp again. I messaged him telling him to chill and found out dude already blocked me. LOL.

    I take screenshots and sometimes goad them on. Does that make me a bad guy? =I

    edit- To be fair I can be a pretty darn salty person myself. But usually only the cat hears about it. ... and sometimes my roommate.

    ... and sometimes the neighbor

    Do you find yourself blocking players after losing to them in a fight out in wvw? What is your logic in doing such a thing, I mean, blocking them will not safe guard you from another attack and defeat, so why do so?

    How do you know they blocked you though? Probably trying to send them a whisper is my guess.

    Who's this legend that lost a fight but managed to get the winner to salt post on the forums?

    My favorite is when they whisper then block, then a few min later when they get farmed again unblock->whisper->block and repeat over and over. This is what happens on my side of the conversation:

    I don't preblock, I just go "invisible" so they can't whisper. Then I get that party invite ... so /laugh

    Only enemy players who have ever messaged me were laying dead at my feet, and I usually block them because they're drunk, high or total nut-balls, and a complete waste of time. In six years, only 3 were sane and worth talking to. ...and, no, no pre-blocking. I just don't respond to idiots and people who are off their rockers.

  • Gemnaid.4219Gemnaid.4219 Member ✭✭✭

    I pre block everyone, especially commanders.

  • Strider Pj.2193Strider Pj.2193 Member ✭✭✭✭

    I use the forums for my block list.

  • As someone else said, the vast majority of blocks are on the spammers of team chat. Or the folks who whine and complain that 'someone else' didn't do x y or z as though they were management criticizing the staff. It gets old fast.

    Maybe they do not want to interact with you at all. Even if you do or don't send they want to make sure you are not able to never do it? I am more curious too why this is important to you? For you to notice it you obviously wanted to write something to the guy so then he manage to stop you from doing that and did not have to interact with you at all. Why does that bother you?

  • there are some people who say, "welcome to my blocklist" and when you type again for like after 10 minutes, they reply.
