            A language being difficult to learn is not gatekeeping. Gatekeeping is a conscious effort, Japanese simply exists as it is. That's like saying a hill being too steep is gatekeeping fat fricks. The only thing Japs could do would be anti-gatekeeping by changing their language.

              That is, in fact, one possible way to gatekeep. It's why harder and complex games naturally gatekeep idiots out of them, but some games demand active gatekeeping from the cultural side of things.

                i wasn't who you were arguing with originally fyi. but yes, what matters is how words are most commonly used. "hacking" has a few common usages but one of the more common is unauthorized access to computer systems. that may be derived from another older and more general usage but it's still distinct; ask someone on the street what a hacker is and they'll most likely say something about computers.

      This. That's why most Roguelike fanbases are generally pure.

    I think ARMA 3 is decently well gatekept. Quite niche and it’s a niche that generally appeals to a specific type of person, mostly right leaning tacticool dudes and gun nuts. It’s got a high barrier to entry in that if you want to do ANYTHING besides play boring pub servers you have to join a clan and then you have to mesh well with that clan, which will generally be made up of the aforementioned gun nuts and tacticool dudes. Women don’t like it, blacks don’t care for it, wokies don’t like milsims, and I’ve yet to run into a troony who plays ARMA. I have however met several gays who play ARMA but it’s bizarre because they’re all redpilled gays who are racist, hate women and don’t sound like high pitched flamers so you can’t even tell their gay most the time

    If the game in itself has little appeal to the point that ecelebs won't point a spotlight on it then there, it's "gatekept". You can't stop entertainment media, especially since absolutely nothing is preventing one from just making another group which can end up being the larger voice by having more people.

                Yes. Because getting filtered isn't specific to a skill issue. It's also pertains to aesthetics and setting. If something is simply just too outside someone's desired look or vision they will simply not engage.
                People need to stop worrying about Gatekeeping because it's not something a member of the community can accomplish. It's not their job and they don't have the authority. They should focus on policing. Removing the undesirables that are already planted in their community.

    Jesus you autists, gatekeeping is just not being welcome at a place in general. It might mean that you will have to find some other mean of becoming welcome (effort, changing other things, whatever), and it might come from the thing itself or from the people around it.

      Sounds like you're the kind of person who needs to be gatekept.
      Gatekeeping is enforcing entry requirements, it's not chasing people off for whatever reason.

      The people who b***h about it don't meet the entry requirements and want to make the rules despite not even being part of the hobby yet.

          They aren't mutually exclusive. Both can exist as the same if done intentionally. Sometimes people getting filtered is just a skill/aesthetic issue. Sometimes it's intentionally that way to keep people who wish the games were easier or looked or acted different out of the franchise so the large group that's already there isn't at risk of being removed for a stark few loud raving mad idiots.

    Kingmaker and WotR. The seethe from BG3 babs trying it out is perpetually hilarious.
    Tactics Ogre Reborn was another one; it was harder than the previous two games and had a level cap to prevent grinding, and a card system to force dynamic situations you had to react to so it mad bads very angry.
    I think complicated or hard games both do a pretty good job. Etrian Odyssey, Factorio, most roguelikes and some lights, other Wizardry clones, stuff like that.

        the solution is the ranked mode and the blitz mode or whatever it's called, the problem is that there was so little players that these modes were useless, but with a decent playerbase the tryhards would all be playing rankeds and blitz would act as some playgrounds for new players, or even the normal game modes

            when did you play for the last time? i think the few chokepoints were meant for you to work as a team, at the same time the attackers being immune to flashbang meant it wasn't that good to camp chokepoints as 5, the design of each tileset made the level design somehow different from one another (they reworked how some of them worked) :
