We have met many people within the Game of War Community and had some fun exploring who these people are in previous installments of our People You Meet series. However, we don’t just meet them in the game — we also see them on social media. Game of War has a vibrant playerbase that thrives in outside communities such as Discord, the Line app, and Facebook.
Therefore, for our next rendition of The People You Meet, we will take a look at the People You Meet in Game of War Social Media. If you missed our previous installments of The People you Meet, make sure you go back and give them a read. They are sure to send you into fits of giggles.
The Lurker… Kinda
You will meet the lurker in every room. They pop their head out on occasion and say a few words, but typically they are the ones that read the room and do not talk. Many times when you call out the lurkers, they will pop their head out and explain why they are lurking, and then go right back to lurking. There is nothing inherently wrong with this type of person, and I myself am guilty of lurking at times. However, we aren’t mean and we like you, so come out and play more often!
This person is the one that is constantly talking in rooms. Posting information and in more informal rooms pictures of their children, their meals… well, pretty much anything they do all day long. They hope to be validated through an online community and will constantly check back in to see if someone has commented on or liked their post. Once again, there is not anything inherently wrong with this type of personality, but it can become a problem quickly. If I could give you one piece of advice it would be… BREATHE!
Yeah, I am not sure if those are real words… but it is the best way to describe this person. I’m sure you all know this person, but if you doubt it, let me give you a little more clarification. This person used to play Game of War. They no longer play, but they continue to lurk in the rooms for one reason and one reason only. They are looking for an opening and if they get an opening, this is what they will say:
“If I can give you my advice? Quit NOW… MZ is nothing but money-hungry grubs and I refuse to give them any more of my money. This game ruined my life and I refuse to stop until everyone quits.”
Blah, Blah, Blah. Whatever words or phrasing they use, it is always the same, and all I hear is blah, blah, blah. Get out the room if you hate the game so much!
Everybody is a critic! Not really, but these people definitely exist in Game of War Social Media. They are the ones that will search and search to find something wrong with what you just said and jump all over it like white on rice. This can be a frustrating personality to deal with, as it can go one of two ways. Either their criticism pushes you to prove them wrong or to go back at a problem and find a way to do it better, or it puts you in a place of darkness.
A little constructive criticism can go a long way, but be cautious not to tear each other down in the process. Criticism can either help us improve or discourage us, and a large part of that is how it is given. We have seen this often from the Simon Cowells to the Gordon Ramseys of the World. However, let’s be honest: you can be the best at giving constructive criticism and there will still be people who do not know how to take it.
These people are there, but they do not read the room or interact –at all. I mean, even lurkers interact at times. The inactives are there and may occasionally clear messages but who knows why they are actually there or if they are even still out there somewhere. However, seriously look at Game of War Line Rooms many times the room number is nearing 500 however, out of those 500 people maybe 20 people make up a majority of the conversation.
The best thing is when an inactive user decides to leave a room, and they post their farewell and see their way out the door. This leaves all active users scratching their head wondering who in the world that person was.
Okay, once again, let’s be honest. We all know that Game of War couples exist. Spending so much time as a community, this is bound to happen. There are five years of history between some of the players, and actual successful real-life relationships have come out of these couplings.
However, there is always that one Game of War Couple. Everyone knows they are a couple because of the excessive amount of chat PDA. Sweetie, if you want to tell him that you will call him soon or tell him about your day, they invented something called Private Messages… please learn how to use it. And we really do not want to hear you call her Honey Boo-Boo 20 million times. This is when the gag emojis start populating chat.
The Room Geek
I actually love the Nerds and Geeks of Game of War. These are the people that get into all of the mathematics and science behind the game. They are some of the best players, but at times they are too smart for their own good.
These are the people in the room who are throwing out abbreviations and numbers and mathematical stuff and leave the rest of the room (especially the newbs) feeling like they just witnessed a conversation in a different language. Sometimes the Geeks and Nerds of the rooms need a translator — thought, if you ask them nicely, they may translate for you!
The Room Clown
Oh my, I do not even know where to start with this one. The room clown, much like a class clown, can be a lot of fun. This is the jokester of the room who always has a funny meme or a smart-aleck comment to make in response to just about everything. They enjoy stretching their comedic flair, but unfortunately at times they can take it a little too far.
While this person can be a lot of fun, if it goes too far it can quickly go from funny to troll, and then no one is happy.
The Room Police
Guilty as charged! These are our room monitors. The people who make sure that the room is running smoothly and all individuals within are abiding by the rules set forth. Believe me, this is not always an easy role, and it is very easy to anger people when you tell them their meme is unwelcome in the room. However, this is a role that needs to be fulfilled in order to be sure that the community has places they can go to get information and not be overrun by off-topic chatter (there are rooms for that).
The Info Provider
Guilty as charged (again)! These people are there to provide information for Game of War players of all types. They seek validation through chat in some form, in that they want to be recognized as a credible source of information. However, while some people give great advice (we at Realtips like to count ourselves among that population), others should not be giving game advice.
There have been times where I have found myself going, WHAT?, upon seeing advice given within chat. While there are many knowledgeable players out there be cautious about who you take advice from and do not build your accounts on glitches!
That’s all for today! There are so many personalities in the Game of War Community, whether you find them in-game or on social media. We have fun interacting with all of you in both places. If you are not already in our social media rooms, you should definitely be sure to join us for great conversation and strategy tips on the go.
