I thought this was a really good policy.

"Use racial or homophobic slurs: instant ban"

WG should implement something like this too.

 

Oh, and before anyone has anything to say about 'muh freedom of speech' you don't have that on privately owned property.
If you don't understand that, you probably need to stay in school.

As much as those words can really be hurtful, I think WG has it right with what they currently have. Whipping out bans is not something to take lightly, and drawing the line at real threats and harassment is the right call for now.

In all fairness, R6S is a very different game (and community) than WoWS, so I doubt we would ever really need such a policy in the way they did.

It is already a thing in the forum rules, section 2.1, and I believe it is in the games terms of service too.

The in game reporting system does work eventually for the bad ones and for the most toxic ones screen shots and start a ticket.

That awkward moment where you get more hate for being a tester then anything. 

Hell I haven't been called a (N word) since beta, which is nice.

And this is the exact reason why I have the game chat disabled lol.  But I do agree with that.  Slurs should be instant banned.  No Ifs Ands or Buts about it.

As much as I'd like to say sure why not, how would it affect the health of the forums in the long run? Can't say we have enough members that we can simply ban people for all sorts of nonsense like other forums do.

Oh, I'm saying that we're good as is, and that while the policy might help, we don't need it badly enough to justify its use (yet at least).

@MrDeaf Send the offenders names in a support ticket to Customer Support and they may do something about it!

Carry on!

No, I really did mean it when I said WoWs NA isn't very toxic, because I can't really think of anyone to report these days.

But having a no tolerance policy is still a good thing, because not all the WG servers are, relatively, this clean.

I mean, there is a lot of talk amongst the WoWs community (at least the ones I look at) that they don't want their game to become like WoToxic, so I don't quite understand the point of your statement.

In fact, if I did what you did and read deeper into the meaning of the post, than there was posted or implied, your post there could be construed as wanting to maintain the status quo for level of toxicity in the game, which you seem to think there is more than I think there is.

I don't really see it having much effect at all on the forums. We'd lose... What? One, maybe two people every now and then? And would those really be people we want to keep around anyway?

'Real world'

Yeah....right. The rude comments I see in chat would get a  nose instantly smashed in anywhere in my universe. You can take the sailor out of the trailer park....  

Co worker got a warning strike from WG after PM'ing a guy after a match teasing him if his parents paid for his premium ship with Visa or mastercard. So, WG is serious about this. Wows still needs a global chat disable like Wot.

No, seriously. Try walking into the Bronx and yelling-out some racial slurs at the first people you see. That behavior is completely counter-intuitive to the desire of "surviving in the real world." 

Just because you want to be able to say whatever you want to anyone without consequence doesn't mean it's either right or gonna happen.
