​And I did send in screenshots and replays of breaches and got the usual automated BS responses so I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss his concerns. WG ask us to report these things, as Neokai said, they can't be everywhere. BUT, when they are reported action needs to be seen to be taken. When you see the same people in battle with the same usernames etc AFTER you have been informed action was taken you might find you have a better case than you seem to think. If WG wants to claim they have a legal policy they sure as hell want to make sure they USE it! Everyone is sick of the automated response system so that comment is pointless, games are KNOWN in the gamer community for their toxicity and from your remarks about legal action I shall just assume you are a troll with no legal training. Crawl back in your hole or get back under your bridge. If you have nothing to add to the conversation please save us the pixels.

 

For chat-related issues send them to a moderator - we have no access to support tickets.

For game-related issues a moderator can provide you an "expert" opinion, and if the issue is serious enough we can help you link up with the GMs directly.

I had to report a name of a player that i find offensive to a WG person this week

 

Question is

 

WHY do i have to see such names which are offensive when such moderators can esaily see these names with a player search in game

 

We even had racist comments in General chat the other day

Why do i have to see it and report it 

Just because i dont like seeing it  in there with eyes watching and young players minds being  show this is how people feel

The player the other day said "Screw the eula"

 

WG needs to bring to all players that this behavior in game is not acceptable with  racist slants going on all the time

 

Totally piisses me offf that they even speak this way


RIP MUM 02/08/2018 May your spirit carry me on till we meet again

Long story short, moderators have blind spots. We can't be everywhere, and we cannot (and should not) routinely pull chatlogs of players. Beyond the sheer logistical impossibility, it is a gross infringement of a person's privacy. A moderator only pulls chatlogs when there is a need to, mostly arising from a player's complaints and there is a lack of documented proof.

 

And pulling chatlogs takes time. Typically it takes at least one working day, if not more, to process one such claim. That is why moderators request replays/screenshots - it helps resolve cases faster.

 

Public threads (like this one) are not okay because of name/shame rules - we do not want witch hunts, especially if they are #fakenews. Follow due process please.

Sounds like I owe you an apology MM..


 

The mods here, do a great job monitoring general chat from what I've seen and I thought they would deal with those idiots pretty quickly. But It's up to all of us, not just the mods to stomp that kind of behaviour out before it becomes normalized and I'd hate to see general chat on this server turn into what I've seen on the North American one.


 

If I see it happen again, I'll make sure I speak up louder.. not just for you but for anyone else as well.. hopefully others who read this will take a tougher stance against it too.


 

For anyone that thinks it's okay directing those kinds of insults at another person, you need to man-up, and have a good look at yourself in a mirror!

Elite911 used to routinely scan IGNs by typing in common profanities. Let's just say that it's reaaaaally easy to create new accounts, so WG's policy is to only target active accounts (seen in battle/chat).

 

As for why report, it's because I have yet to find a method that allows me to play battles and yet monitor gen chat at the same time - and no, I do not want to login an alt account on WoT 24/7 just for that express purpose. It's the same analogy with community policing, citizens must get involved if you want a safer home, with active duty police providing the heavy muscle as necessary.

 

The current bounds of acceptable speech (so we don't get accused of Orwellian control) is:

  • don't insult people (MM and the EULA are the heroes we deserve, but don't need now - they can take it)
  • don't bypass the profanity filter (because our filter is anally specific and all 13-yo boys/girls should not be exposed to the intimate carnal knowledge that adults are privy to)
  • don't spam
  • nothing illegal (if in doubt of jurisdiction, see Singapore's  Penal Code and the Misuse of Drugs' Act)

 

This covers the vast majority of cases in chat. Most irate rants/comments are fine (e.g. "[Edited] this lemming team, [Edited] campers" ), and are only warned if said in excess. It's only when the insults start getting personal (e.g. your mother, your race, how you procreate or eat) that the insta-chatbans start showing up.

Well, to be fair wasaabi's red pen note kinda straddles the gray area of name/shame, but "said user" honestly brought it upon himself...

Please don't promote EULA violations. This can be considered a form of harassment.

If after 5 working days you don't see action, PM me the support ticket (and the IGN) so I can bump it directly with the GMs.
