So I recently had a player join my co-op who was much younger then everyone in my group. Basically we are over 30 and the person joining was 16. After chatting the new member left citing the age difference. Now we don’t have an age requirement but I’m curious. Has anyone had to set an age limit for your co-op? Are you in a co-op with players of various ages? Just curious.

We do not care about age.  We care about good sportsmanship and an acceptable amount of maturity.  In all the co ops I have been in, only one “child” was kicked and it was for insolent and disrespectful behavior.  That said, I would think a youngster would prefer the company of others near their age group. Maybe I am wrong.  I would rather not see anyone describe their co op using age ranges.

I have seen a few co-ops requesting mature adults only in their co-op description. I completely understand why they do this. If you have chatty group, you may feel some of the things you might discuss may not be appropriate for youngsters. 16yr olds would still be a concern for many as they would be very conscious of what they were writing.

If they do not want to be restricted on what they write in the chat bar and worry about anything being inappropriate. It makes sense to have an adult only co-op. So I respect that Very Happy

I do not have statistical data to support it, but I think that the average age of the players is between 30 and 50 years old. This does not mean that there are no teenagers, as is the case that you mention, but it is not the gaming platform that a centennial likes the most. In my co-op I am the oldest ... reaching half a century ... 🤦🤦🤦

In a game where players can lie about their age and any other personal details, it would be pointless to put an age limit on membership in a co-op. A good indicator of age (although not 100% reliable) would be town level or town name, as well as attitude in chat ("plz help me with trains!!!).

I cringe when a player chats "I'm 12 y.o., how old are you?" My experience is that young players don't hang around when the chat starts to center on grandchildren and the health problems of us over 65's.

In competitive co-ops, players whose parents only let them play an hour or two a day don't last very long.

I've seen co-ops who say "girls only". How can you enforce such a rule?

Bottom line, a player's attitude and playing style have to match that of the co-op leader, or out they go.

It's true that people lie. However I don't think it is pointless to put an age limit on your co-op. It will still give those looking a good indication of what type of co-op you have. People want to find co-ops that suit them. If you have an age limit, this helps them if they are looking for an adult only co-op, or have a child they want to be welcome in the same co-op they join. And it will stop a fair few from joining, but certainly not all.

 It also makes it clear cut if a player joins and is not within the limits you have stipulated. There will be no need to discuss removing that member, as all of the co-op will be in agreement of their co-ops requirements/restrictions. Equally if you do not have an age limit, and then allow children to join (yes some still consider 16yr olds children), any member not happy about it cannot say there shouldn't be children in your co-op.

So for me it also helps prevent future disagreements in a co-op too Very Happy

I can understand both sides of the issue. I did think that users who played the game were over a certain age but that could come from following the forum. I don’t want to restrict people from joining but I also don’t want to have to restrict topics in the chat. I think for now Im closing request until my co-op can agree on rules and restrictions. Thanks everyone for the feedback. I’m a night/late night player so i’m just seeing responses.

We dont know each others ages for sure, but I had a general idea that we are an older group, like 30-69 yo, with me being the oldest. We have 1 player who was doing great but then came up missing for a few weeks. She came back this week to tell us that her mom took away her phone because she was doing bad in school becoz of the game, lol!  Pretty sure she's in her late teens but I didnt ask.

I prefer 18+ because you never know with a minor you get a mad they can say oh this person in this game said this to me he's pervert etc blah blah blah blah blah it's better just to be safe than sorry I will not have nobody under 18 and mine for that simple reason kids especially nowadays are very vindictive

I had one person join my co-op that was like i’m excited to help can’t wait to play with you guys. etc. then disappeared for a month. stopped responding in the chat. the story of the girl being on punishment makes me wonder if she may have been on punishment. I’m cracking up laughing.

I am going on past experience. In a game I use to play about 4-5 yrs ago, I allowed a minor in. She got into it with one of my other players he kicked her out legit reason and next thing we know he got banned because of inappropriate talk to a minor, weeks after dealing with CS we finally got him back. So yeah negative past with minors

@dnana1 I remember that when I was born, my grandmother was only 6 years older than I am. She looked so different from how I am today! I still feel like a young woman! I can't imagine her playing TS! Fortunately, times have changed! lol!  👵🏻👵🏻👵🏻

Have added a word to your post that I think makes it's meaning immediately clear.
Am lacking coffee and suffering from literalism. My best friend growing up was older than her auntie so I've just spent ten mins scratching my head trying to work out how much of a cradle snatcher your dad and granddad were for you to have a six year old step-granny lol!

And yes, I can hear them tutting, " what do your mean, you don't knit?!?!?". The frightening thing is, despite how young at heart we feel, we probably look just as ancient to our ickleuns...for example, when asked a question I can't answer my first instinct is to phone a friend that might know....the kids go straight to goofle/wiki .
Thanks for making me smile Very Happy
