Watching right now and people just talk about the games. Idk, maybe it was worse earlier.
Yesterday aoe2 vs aoe4 dominated Hera's stream but most of people were talking about it calmly.
The trolling by minorities was happening from both sides.
There's something I'd like to say to people who see toxicity tho. Are you sure it isn't confirmation bias? You heard about one group being toxic and now pay more attention to it. What I noticed is lots of people are very prone to seeking negativity where there is none. Please remember twitch chat doesn't promote well thought out long sentences which makes many messages more crude than intended. There's language barrier too, majority of aoe community has English as second/third language.
Many people go "toxic aoe2 fans hating aoe4" upon merely seeing someone say they dislike how aoe4 looks. And then they circlejerk each other how superior they are and how sad anyone preferring aoe2 is. Overreacting like that is even worse than people complaining about one game or another imo. Such attitude only makes the division stronger. Ridiculing people for being unhappy can result in stronger retaliation and nobody gains anything from that in the end. Quite often there's several times more people complaining about "toxicity" than people being actually toxic, assuming any are present at all. It's a weird situation but surprisingly common one, noticed it countless times outside of aoe too.
It's being very moderated atm, if someone talks about what should he play or why it gets deleted.
