    Default What Happened to the Growtopian Community?

    We all know that Growtopia isn't the same as it was 3 years ago. Most people besides forumers cared for each other less and less. They became rude and toxic to other players just to pursue their dream goals.

    Thanks to everyone who gave me the strength and courage to win my first WOTD. Eventually, many players, instead of saying heartwarming stuff, asked me to sell the WOTD Trophy to them. Well, it is my wish to keep the trophy, so of course, I won't sell it away for any price.

    I stayed calm and collected and continue to say no to buyers asking me to sell my trophy to them. What saddened me was that a while after the new WOTD was announced (Congrats, to the winner!), someone spammed me to sell the trophy to them (in curse words too.) Definitely and properly, I declined. They then warped to my world and started spewing nonsense about me being a dumb guy for not selling the trophy for 10 dls (his offer) to him, saying that he is willing to overpay for the trophy, etc.

    Would love to remind everyone who was reading this thread not to be too obsessed with riches, as the madness of being rich can actually consume you. (Believe me, I have seen this in real life). Make sure to be nice and helpful to everyone, but don't overdo it too much as you might get backstabbed. (I have experienced this too.)

    This is very distressing and disrespectful, what did you do about the player afterwards?

    I kept my cool and eventually, they left.

    True, materialism is the key to survive in the current era, to the extreme that it is implemented in games.

    Some people are quite desperate. A buyer with the Legendary Dragon even asked to buy the trophy for a friend of theirs. Oh, well.

    Ignore to the haters man. They just want the trophy so they can sell even more higher to the peeps who doin they're Legendary Quests. Just put that trophy in a nice place and look at it. Proudly

    I don't speak to impure people, I'd just get rid of them by banning them, and I'll ignore him before he can spill out his words of impurity

    The feeling of winning WOTDs used to give you some satisfaction that, hey, I actually got a trophy for building a nice world! It's too bad that some people see the trophy as a material thing rather than something that's worth keeping nowadays. I'd love to have people actually understand instead of immediately putting a price tag on a WOTD trophy.

    Hey SixFace,

    Congrats on the WotD! It's quite an awesome achievement. As Community Manager, I'm trying my best to bring the community together. I generally play the WotD every day (when I'm not buried in work), and I have so much respect for you builders. <3

    Thanks for building cool things for the community to enjoy. :3 Swing by THESILVERMOON if you want to a cool place to chill with some mods!

    Much love,

    Odric

    Rude people are better off banned, and good people are always welcome. I did follow this rule for my last 2 WOTDs and they've been great.
    If you don't ban such people, they'll end up hurting others not to mention that it's useless to talk things through with them. Toxic people will remain toxic unless some famous and rich YouTuber tells them not to.

    What happened to the Growtopian community? Well, a LOT happened.
