Why are there so many children playing this game?

19 posts in this topic

They're so annoying, we're talking at least 10 to 14 years old kids playing this game who won't shut up, but on the flipside it's usually russians or some obscure poverty eastern european country on an English server. Devs need to filter out these cretins and do something, I honestly cannot find one server that has decent ping and english speaking players.

It's a free game. That means anyone, anywhere can play. Trying to change that would be a herculean task for the development team, and would definitely result in a strong community backlash (These "cretins" are, whether you like it or not, part of the community and would be very unhappy to suddenly be excluded for ethnic or ageist reasons, not to mention the media would pounce on it like a pack of starving crazed weasels). The best kind of filtering you'd be able to find would have to be server-side. Namely, an active admin banning squeakers, non-native speakers and anyone with an accent. You could create your own server for this, but I am guessing you lack the resources.

But do not fret, we have the tools to help ourselves. There's mute, for the squeakers, and as for your poor ping and xenophobia, do not despair, for there's a solution to that as well.

When selecting a sever, you should have the options to adjust latency and location (the latter doesn't appear to work in NMRiH, but it should for other source games). Having a latency less than 100 should restrict your server options to those located in your closest US region, the extent of this is based on your internet connection strength. Now, this doesn't stop non US players from joining, but again, there's the mute button. All praise the mute button.

Now, if you're just here to vent, then may I direct you to the steam community forums. You'll be among like-minded folk there.

I'm still hoping for an age verification system for Steam. I bet the servers would be a hell of a lot emptier this way ^^

I'm pretty sure the kids would lie their way in like they do to any website or software with age verification. The ole' year change trick.

I'm a kid I play it but mainly because I can and I am good at it. Also because my friends play it.

Dude, the thread necro-ing is real with you. What's up with that chief?

No, I'm not talking about that "Press here to enter, adult" shit. I'm talking about what a lot of German websites already have: Something where you have to verify your age via your identity card. Yes, there will be Russians with workarounds, but with stuff like that, they usually end up having their steam account perma-banned and it won't be worth it for most kids after a while.

So first off you can't just blame all kids. I know there are some of them who are obnoxious and not cool but just mute mic transactions. And to respond to deffreyhammer your filtering idea on steam makes no sense because kids have the legal right to play these games so why should they put a age filter. The pegi age rating are just ratings wich are recommended but it's not like kids are forbidden. So please stop this cliché guys

I just want a tickable language option so people know if the server is English/Russian/French/etc.

1. This is biased which I don't really care about, but what you said is unfair. I am 12 years old, but I know the values of teamwork and cooperation. I scavenge and stockpile survival areas for other players, I always give people weapons or medical aid when they need it, I always aid a person in an dark area when I use a flashlight, I never take more than I need, I offer people a gun if I have more than one, and conserve the ammo I have. I can kill at least 120 zombies with a pick axe, I know how to play this game. 

I would say I'm a responsible NMRIH player. So then why would you call everyone that has the age range of 10-14 all complete shitheads? Why would you want to penalize everyone that is within that age group, even the useful ones? Has it occurred that people over the age of 14 sometimes are shitheads? Fine I agree it is hard to play with foreign speakers, the Ping is pretty bad. 

Don't call everyone with that age group a cretin. There are millions or a billion kids that are ranged 10-14 maybe a few thousand play NMRIH. Won't it be likely that not everyone in that age has the same mindset, intelligence, idealism, personality?

You are not speaking in an age-appropriate language.
