So yesterday a few players sent verbally harassing comments to a fellow clan mate.  No the "you suck," or "drink bleech," but discriptive comments of what they would like to do to this m player.  This clan mate is also female, which doesnt matter because either way its no ok to say it to anyone.


My question to the community is if one player texts another player graphic sexual comments of what they would want to do to another player, should that one communication be enough to permantly ban that player for life feom Blitz?



What if that said player who communicates these messages then carries out the act?  Would War Gaming have any liability for keeping communication methods open to allow further harassment?



I believe communications with sexual and or graphic discriptions have NO PLACE in blitz.  War Gaming needs to draw a hard line on this issue and have a 1 and done policy.  If not, players who then communicate messages, and in some cases to minors, could then submit the communications to local law enforment, then this program would have to be flagged.  Submit the evidence to Apple or Android to raise the rating to a " M rating" as it has the ability to communicate graphic messages.



So community, and War Gaming mods, do you believe that one graphic sexual post should result in a permanent ban from the game?

I agree. Permaban for the lot of em'. 


I'd be careful though, I caught a 3 day forum ban for holding [those we dont speak of] accountable - on a thread filled with EULA violations.

I got a 2 day ban for posting a simple meme with no swearing or suggestive themes at all on a similar thread.

Going to OP's post, I would say that a good long chat ban would do for the first time, and if they did it again a permanent ban would be deserved. Got to remember that the player who sent it is probably 12 or 13, but some harsh punishment is needed. Possibly a report to the FBI as well..

I agree to this, these players need to be banned. I'm pretty sure everyone here is used to the "your mom" comments, but those are too far. I had one fellow a few days ago (before the update, no screenshots :/) spam me like nobody's business a slew of Sexual, and I'm pretty sure terroristic threats against me. The reason? Because I had a KpfPz 70. I submitted a ticket to WG, and they said that they would check the chat history. This player hasn't logged any games in 5 days, so I'm guessing they got a permaban handed down. But anyways- Some of these kids (and sadly, some older players) of blitz have a serious issue with spamming sexual threats and the like. I'm one of the few female players in Triarii, and the amount of hate I get is unbelievable. If the option from WG came down to leave it to the forum users to decide on this issue, my vote would surely be in the "Make it happen" column. This is enough of a rant, before I get into a topic our Russian Mod Overlords find a reason to hand me a 3-day forum ban. o7

Wg should just have a system that when a word gets **** out that it checks it and once the player gets a certain amount of those with EXTREMELY bad words they get a warning or small chat ban then the next time they get chat banned forever, then finally they get a permaban

I’m sampling the retiree life, of Blitz, not sure if I’ll be returning, but thanks for all of your advice and fun.

I would image that the victim of the threat of sexual assault could and should contact the authorities.  


Its that serious and should not be taken lightly.  


That's what I would do.

I completely disagree with your opinion. Someone who verbally attacks someone else is not only a violation of the game, but a violation on that person's mental well being. 


There are people who play this game, and understand that it's a game. You will win, and you will lose. There are other people who play this game and forget that it's a game. You're WR and maybe your pride will be affected by OTHER PLAYERS as well as your own game performance. Please know this before you hit the battle button.

I would "assume" WG would have zero tolerance for something like this.


If this person continued to act this way I could see a potential lawsuit against WG.


At least that's how the real world works.

There will always be people like that out there. But...it is also the internet.


At the same time, I do not approve at all, and WG will eventually build up this policy to the best of their knowledge.

Hopefully sooner than later.

Problem with permanent bans is that it doesn't leave any opportunities to change or improve.


What then happens is that the person carries that ban or label with them so to speak, and is in fact more likely to act out or embrace the behaviour that we disapprove of.


If we put someone in the hooligan box and nail it shut they're always going to be hooligans, and with a big chip on their shoulder for being boxed in.

Who chooses where the line is drawn?  Keep it up and chat goes back to a place no one liked.

Not condoning any poor behavior but I think it's a bit naive to think every player who crosses a line should be banned.  The game is likely to get very... quiet.
