A friend shared his experience of Mapling with me
and attached few screenshots with it
This sort of situation might have happened to you already
and you’ve had experience with it, or you might have
heard people encountering situations like this:
For privacy sake, let’s name our friend here “Peter”.
Peter was looking for an empty Goby map
and landed on someone’s map
and just when he was about to change channel,
he saw this in his chat box:
“How would you respond, Josh?”
From what Peter said, he doesn’t like hearing the word “cc plz”
I guess he is just really annoyed hearing that word,
and probably many people can agree on that.
So Peter went back to his channel and left this message.
The story could’ve ended here, and everyone just move on.
Peter told me that whisper pissed him off.
He said he wanted to do something to teach him a lesson,
like KS the dude or something (Peter is a high level Mapler)
But then he did something else:
One word that came to my mind about Peter’s reaction is “being soft”
But he told me that by saying that, he got to hear the other side’s
point of view (“No time to type full sentence”…etc)
Which Peter apologized and reconciled with the dude.
Everyone moved on with no holding grudge or any damage made.
My friend told me he was annoyed at first by hearing one of the most
overly used term in the game “cc plz”,
then he was upset by the “grow up” comment,
however, seeing how the conversation turned out in the last
screenshot, I wonder,
Would life be easier if we swallow our pride and take a step back?
Whatever it is, I’m glad to hear that Peter didn’t end up going to KS
him or respond in a negative way.
From what he told me and what I see by the SS,
seems like everyone had an happy ending.
This reminds me of a quote:
“A gentle answer turns away wrath,
but a harsh word stirs up anger.” (Proverb 15:1)
