Hey, I'm not sure how to report a player who has slipped past screening with a really offensive name. I've encountered a few, and saw one in game recently. 

Thanks.

How about not going through life being offended?   Life is much better that way.

You can probably submit a ticket to WG but I would just ignore it.

Please don't be either a pearlclutcher or an SJW.

hey please give him a break.

If the name is offensive, he should be able to report it.

Don't be those guys that stick up for offensive or racist names.

Submit a report through WG Support. If possible, include screenshots showing the full name.

Just what was the guys name exactly? You now have me curious if it would offend me too. Let's take a poll on it.

I don't think it's allowed, otherwise I'd share the name. It's insanely racist, and I'm really surprised that it was allowed.

They can't monitor every nickname, so everything gets alowed until its reported.

WG just needs the name.  It's not like a player can change it at will.

Lets be honest, if a guy's if sailing around with the name IHATEBLACKS or something, it shouldn't be allowed.

However I've seen some pretty funny names though that are very tongue in cheek humour and work around the naming system

Pretty sure I've seen a guy named Fother_Mucker. Not 100% though.

If it's that bad, simply send in a report. The staff will look into it.

It's comical that you of all people are trying to stigmatize others

send in a ticket with the associated replay video.  most names are just brown humor.  but once in a blue moon I'll see something that's really really offensive...like a clock work orange sociopathic.

His victim-hood makes him feel good, atleast he doesn't get extra rights and benefits like in real life.

One of the funniest moments in the game was when a guy with a Jewish name was running around in a Bismarck kicking my teams collective asses. What was worse was that we had a majority of American ships XD

"This is the thanks we get!?" kicked it off lol

One of the best laughs I've had in a long time following the conversation in global chat... not sure if anyone got banned following that... probably.

I don't feel victimized. Don't know where you got that from.

I've been playing this game for nearly 3 years, with about 7,000 battles. I've been active in the forums as a reader and contributor. Never sent in a ticket for any reason. But recently, I saw a player with a really disgusting, racist nickname, and I don't think that's cool. I'm not okay with it, and so I sent in a ticket. Is that ok with you? Are you gonna be alright?
