    For me personally, one factor that Skycade management don't really have too much control over that is turning some players away from Skycade is the extremely high levels of toxicity. There's so many unnecessary toxic comments and gestures made within the game that are just to make certain players either feel bigger and more powerful, to make players feel better about themselves or to make them fit in with others that are the same. The obvious main toxic communities are Factions and OpFactions (I personally believe regular is worse) but now I have also seen an increase in toxic comments and remarks. I have been told that Skycade used to be a lot more toxic than it is today but seeing an increase isn't pleasant and I believe there could/should be something possibly in place to limit this toxicity growing to the heights of how it used to be as that would not be a good experience for the community and also looking at it from a business point of view. Below is a thread of someone claiming toxicity has made them not want to play Skycade anymore; I am sure there are many other players that have left for the same reason but haven't made a thread about it. The second is a quote from Justnaa's leaving thread where they quite clearly say that they are "not enjoying it anymore and don't like the direction Skycade is going in" which shows that Skycade is currently rising in a less enjoyable setting for more and more players which I believe is down to toxicity. My final evidence I am using to support my point is the clear rise in reports of players being toxic from around February time. Now this could just be a coincidence but I personally believe it is because there's more toxic players to report. I want to end this off by saying if you do see anyone being toxic report them and help clean up the server to allow everyone the have the best possible experience on Skycade!

    Someone claiming that toxicity has lead them to not want play anymore:
    A Toxic Enviornment

    1. back then skycade was actually less toxic I would say it was more friendly trash talking nowadays yes there is more toxicity
    2. meh Toxicity is one of the most competitive factors on factions so if you cant take that toxicity what are you even doing on a computer

    you are not going to find a server that doesnt have a bit of toxicity it is not a problem but it usually does grow

    if you dont like the competitive things then maybe dont do factions it might not be for you if you cant take an insult.

    I used to be less toxic then ever I was just a noob but then I actually started to have more fun when I became the toxic little goblin I am today
    I say and do a lot of mean things but I do not mean it im doing it to trigger the other player because it catches them off guard making them mad and I enjoy to see my enemies mad.

    toxicity is a thing you face on factions and some people take some things said to them seriously but remember one thing kids...................................................... THE OTHER PLAYER DOES NOT KNOW YOU WHO CARES ABOUT WHAT THEY SAID ..........................................


    even then I usually am friends or end up friends with the enemies I make on skycade so sometimes you can say toxicity brings ppl together like when I met @xM1ck on the forum we were having an argument and more or less insulting each other but literally that same day we became friends becuz we realized how silly it was so dont hate the player hate the game.

    For me personally, one factor that i hate is these sorts of threads. kthx just needed to get that off my chest.
    "so many" is an overstatement

    well.. yeah, its factions. i dont really know what you're expecting from factions...
    no. you have seen an increase in threads addressing it. also, toxicity stems off toxicity. one toxic thing gets said, another is likely to follow and is usually part of the same argument. therefore making it unfair to class both as "completely different".
    you have been told correctly
    what do you suggest? "what you said "i hate you"?? GET BANNED"
    wtf does this have to do with anything
    i'll reword this for you:
    or maybe they dont like the way skycade is going because of the ranks, or because of other things. stop assuming.
    most of the threads shown in the video are from 2017 are you mad??
    i think it's people who dont really know what they're talking about in all honesty
    just... i just dont even....

    also can i just say you literally just searched for toxicity in the search bar, you didnt specify dates and certainly didnt address the meaning for each thread
    good day, sir

    It is not me that it is directly affecting. The links I added on the end are a section of those being affected directly along with others. I also feel as a whole it is a negative thing for the general community as it will deter players away from Skycade when that is not what anyone wants.

    Yes, I searched 'Toxic' to show how spread out reports for toxic things were last year compared to how they're more frequently posted now.

    I'm sure the players that are turning away from Skycade because of this toxicity care.

    I never said I didn't search the word toxic. The reason I searched was to show the increase in reports through the dates getting gradually closer and closer together. I didn't say I just pressed search and all the threads were magically toxic reports.

    Because if the toxicity has made them leave why would they post a thread on it as that would only lead to more toxic comments targeted at them. Also this would mainly affect less well-known players of the community that do not feel they need to post a leaving thread or players that are just getting into Skycade and may not have experienced a time on the forums at all.

    most new players dont even know there is a forum, and if someone left for toxicity why would ppl be toxic in the comments?

    "It's factions" really is no excuse to support toxic behaviour.
    I don't mean the factions disputes and banter, but personal insults, threats and so on are not part - nor should they ever be part - of the game.

    Just because trash servers have allowed cursing and gross behaviour over the years that doesn't make it a defining or necessary feature of the game, and it's silly if you think it does.
