how to handle a toxic person in the game or on the forum this is how you handle them

 

one is the fact that people that are toxic in the game or kind of a hybrid between a troll and a bully  I know it's hard dealing with these people I've dealt with these people on and off for the last 6 years and the best thing you can possibly do is to ignore them because it takes away their power over you no matter how personal they get or how low they go do not stoop to their level because nine times out of ten will Target someone with a better player which is around 85% of the time which results in them taking it out on a better player even though they got sunk

 

and furthermore if you engage them directly in conversation you will result in being chat band buy them I've seen this thing happened countless number of times and I seen what happens afterwards

Just put chat abusers on your blacklist and block their chat messages in the game, problem solved. In the forums, use the "ignore" function and don't be tempted to expand their posts to see if they are saying anything about you. Remember that even bad forum reputation is reputation. Therefore, the best thing to do with trolling posts that you don't like is to simply not respond to them. Or you can do like I do and respond to troll posts as if they were completely legitimate, which confuses the trolls to no end.

Option A: The simple way.

Don't fall to the offender's level, just blacklist/block them. Easy fix. Nothing lost... but really does nothing to "correct" the behavior, others after you will experience the same situation.

 

Option B: The civic way.

If you feel the offender is out of line and the experience is unsavory enough, send a ticket to C.S with the attached evidence and let "justice" run its course. You'll be fulfilling your "civic" duty and possibly helping other players to not go through the same unsavory experience by the same offender.

 

Option C: The Vigilante way :Smile_trollface:

If you feel the offender deserves some rightful punishment, you can use your superior language skills to taunt and troll back the offender (all within the letter of the rules), make him rage and then troll him some more, at some point he will understand the futility of his actions and behavior. He will experience no "release" from his abusive behavior and will experience how his behavior had a negative consequence leading to even more frustration. Once you break the paradigm of Abusive behavior=Emotional release, the offender will be less likely to persist in a behavior that isn't conductive to the expected reward but instead generates more frustration.

If you don’t break the rules, you won’t be chat-banned based on your chat behavior. A single “misbehavior in chat” report from a single disgruntled player in one battle is not going to result in a ban. You have to trigger multiple reports in a short time frame or have a ticket issued against you (reviewed by CS) to incur a chat ban.

TLDR: mind your language, don’t break the rules, and don’t be a general :etc_swear:hole in chat and you won’t have any problems with chat bans.

IF the situation is what I deem as "serious/critical and requires IMMEDIATE intervention to stop the issue at its source" (basically, REALLY out-of-line/offensive insults or false defamatory statements directed towards me), I will address the situation immediately. PMs may be sent to the offender if things can't be cleared up on the thread, to further discuss the situation seriously, and hopefully reach a conclusion that satisfies both parties. IF something is my fault, then I will do my best to apologize and rectify the situation. IF it is THEIR fault, I WILL point it out, with as much evidence as needed. If things cannot be handled further, only then do I use the Report button. Tbh, I don't usually blacklist people. I prefer to resolve bad situations  with people than to leave them and let them become worse later on. 

Otherwise? I'd probably just ignore it, if it's nothing really offensive!  ~-~°(◠.◠)°v~-~

This. I actually think it would be fun if someone started a thread of the theme "Post your blacklists here!".

Do be careful with the blacklist, having too many players on it can severely degrade port performance.

Huh. I never even considered that, really! Guess I'm glad my blacklist is pretty empty...

i had the pleasure of being supplied a screenshot and a replay file by a friend in which another player(someone that was very active in the forums b4) in random battles was undertaking a racist fueled speech in all chat over 2 years ago. 

sighting a chance to hammer a fellow forumite caught red handed for the wrong reasons, I most definetly did send both the screenshot and replay file with instructions to the right timestamp to customer support, judging how this player behaved in forums following investigations either this was the player's 1st rodeo or customer support's punishment isn't harsh enough, naturally I assume they need to be repeat offenders for harsher consequences, but otherwise I don't know how they handle this incident the player created.

racist, toxic chat or whatever speech that you feel doesnt belong in game chat you can blacklist the player or/and screenshot and save replay as evidence for customer support.

It helps if you clean out your blacklist every so often.  Don't just add people to the blacklist and forget that they're there, only to pile up endlessly.

Just ignore them and part of ignoring is not caring, meaning, if you change your own attitude, you are not ignoring right.

Read obvious troll chat...ignore obvious troll chat.

It is fascinating how hard it seems for so many players to do this.

:cap_old:

I have never used a 'blacklist'.  Perhaps it is a valuable tool for some.  I, however, am a simpleton.  I see it...I don't like it...I ignore it.  Simpleton don't need no app for that.

Handling them is not hard at all. Simply go on with your game. It's simple. A word is just a word. WE give power to words ONLY when we LET them effect us. if you simply play on, words have no power what so ever. If you let words effect you, you may to worried about trivial and harmless things.

This works for someone who is a normal toxic chatter.  But if they're engaging in racist, homophobic, etc hate speech, then I report it to customer support.

As previously mentioned, having too many people on your blacklist will impact your game.

Now you've got me curious about the threshold for triggering the performance impact.  :cap_hmm:
Tens?  Hundreds?  Thousands of names on a blacklist?
