OKM is not connected to anyone violating the rules of law. Unless I am mistaken, the Kriegsmarine were actually one of the more honorable parts of the Nazi regime, they didn't torture, their rules were the same as those from other nations, they picked up survivors.

Good luck, Captains! May the winds blow in your favour, and may your shells fly straight and true!

If you see me in a game, cover your eyes and ears cos I'm gonna suck. In fact, run like hell and hope we lose honorably. And burn your eyes after seeing my stats.

Well considering my name is the same as one of the most powerful German tanks in WW2, my days must be numbered then. Here's the thing, as trolls, they can be reported for that alone. The clan name, in my opinion falls into a gray area. Honestly, if you have ANYTHING referencing the German military it's a gray area, because who's to say you're not referencing the modern German military? Or the WW1 military?

I just harass back. Simple enough, and I don't make myself look like a playground sissy.

And frankly, I wonder why people don't have more constructive things to do with their time than whine about somebody's avatar, or cry around about a stupid number that probably means absolutely nothing other than the last 2 digits of their birth year. Complete and utter nonsense.

8 is considered to be the luckiest of numbers in China, because the pronunciation the word for 8 also sounds like the word luck or wealth.  The more 8's you have, the luckier you will be. The Chinese government auctions off license plates with multiple 8's for thousands of dollars.  The 2008 Beijing Olympics were opened on August 8th (08-08-08) at 8pm because it was considered an auspicious time.

 

88 in also used in China the mean bye-bye for text messages and in amateur radio for "love and kisses."

I was banned a couple times. First time I kinda deserved it. Second time was really stupid. I learned I can do without the chat.

There are times where I really wish I could disable chat, such as when I'm divisioned up with clan members and we're all on "Teamspeak."

I had to look that up because two of their members began harassing me in game, then messaging me after the game. 

 

I sent a Support Ticket. - Harassment Continued

 

I sent a second Support Ticket - Nicks have not changed; Clan still has name; Harassment has not continued this morning but player is offline. 

 

Support has worked for me in the past, but the technician just copy/pasted the normal stuff and nothing happened. I have the tickets and the screen shots if needed. 

 

I understand that NAZI nicks are hard to police...but someone should be policing Nicks. 

 

And shockingly, the people in the NAZI clans are harassing people. Correlation isn't causation but they are highly correlated. 

 

My primary complaint is that Support Closed TWO tickets, assuring me the problem was dealt with, and nothing was done. 

 

The community is riddled with this kind of vile behavior. The problem is that you have a lot of people out of touch with society and reality encouraging each other to ever greater acts and positions of ignorance while WG is silent and offers no guidance or government. There are clans that opnely discuss what's essentially child pornography, war crimes, defamation, et c. Government that protects free speech is one thing, private companies that choose to condone usernames that are horribly offensive slurs are another. Cf. BUNNY's "BIGNIG". WG doesn't give a [edited], they're worse than negligent, they're complicit because they know their customers are disgusting and can;t stand criticism or acquaintance with reality.

[edit] hilarious, their forum censors the word F.U.C.K. but they allow players to RP as nazis and bigots without the least concern. This is the most hypocritical garbage. I should figure out how to get WG barred from doing business in the U.S. and steal all their IP for use in a better game. Damned Russians have been stealing U.S. IP for centuries, why not the other way?

a couple months ago there was a team member going off in battle chat with high frequency, colorful language, and his subject matter included anti-Semitic, Nazi, racist, sexist, and nationalistic garbage. pretty much everybody on the team, excepting his own clam (word chosen as it actually relates to something nautical) member was responding in an effort to argue, or shut him up. as I spawned right next to him in my DD (preNerf IJN), after a couple minutes, i torped him. the next 10 battles I wore pink camo, and told friendlies exactly why, what and who. with pride.


 I created a ticket, named the alleged perp, and included screenshots and a replay. received the usual canned response, yawn. except for the part where they got on my case for sinking a friendly as retaliation, this is apparently a big no-no, which can result in my being banned from the game. bad player. his clam remained active with the same offensive name, and I saw him in a battle the next day, on the enemy team.


 also posted in the forum, and started a thread. I included the username, quotes which included the support response. this is "naming and shaming", and, of course, resulted in a warning. and it was edited so as not to be offensive. because we must protect the frail, stupid minds, esteem and psyches of the morons that generate this sort of hebetudinous blather and crap.


 as you might expect, there were a few players that spoke eloquently in support of what I was saying, trying to do, but did not condone the way I responded. there were far more responses that were the usual trolling, and more than a few defended the fool and his racist, bigoted, sexist, mindless, tasteless comments. this is a major concern to me, as I really don't want to play with, nor support anything that supports, tolerates nor encourages racism, white supremacy, neo-Nazi, sexist, anti-Semitic bottom feeder trash.


 (ed. note: it's a war game loosely based on WW2, and there are going to be references to Nazis, and the ships they built. I am not overly sensitive about this, until somebody starts denying the holocaust, or tell me it was a good idea. or the like. that's where MY right to free speech, AND ACTION comes into play)


 WG will not respond to this situation in an effective manner. we can. if you see it in game, and are willing to risk a permanent ban, you can delete that sucker fast. it's quite satisfying. it's quite satisfying even when WG essentially supports what they were saying and how they were saying it, by handing you the TK.


 (ed. note: universal disclaimer. this crap can kill you. this was written by a professional on a closed course with safety measures in place. do not try this at home, you might get seriously injured or worse.)

I get irritated with antisemitism also. I'm not Jewish, I have Cherokee ancestry (2 great grandmothers), but I will not respond in a positive manner to it. I also don't like rudeness, and will respond to that also. I agree with torping some people, Just don't kill them. No need. If you do enough damage, they will die quickly anyway, but you won't risk being banned, or a pink ship. I REALLY don't like team members shooting you just for the heck of it- ya know, how some people like to shoot stuff before the enemy appears. I've HE spammed people for that ignorant crap. I don't care if they actually hit me or not. But I try not to kill them.

Secondly, you can also ignore it. We have that option also. I don't claim to always make the right decision............
