In-game harrassment - PMs sent bashing you and/or your guild

I know BS/Mythic/EA (whoever owns this thing these days) will never do anything about this issue but I figured it would be fun to start posting all of these ridiculous PMs we get in BGs. Most of these come in Molvik and it happens to people on all 3 realms (not just to me). I probably get about 1-2 a day, especially if I play on a toon that isn't /anon. Putting your toons to /anon stops the harassment but why should I have to change my settings to accommodate someone that is clearly breaking the TOS? I played on a toon today I haven't played on in probably 2 years but within 6 minutes of being logged on I had the message below sent to me. You can't respond to them in order to ask them to stop as they log off or have their toon set to /anon so you can't respond. And trying to /ignore them is futile as they just use a different toon the next time they do it.

So here is the first name I'd like to start the list with along with a screenshot proving the harassment. The offending toon's name is LARAICEEMZS. I'll continue to post here along with the offending toon's name and screenshots proving the harassment.

  • Thank you Valtar, this is under investigation. The best course of action in future is to report it ingame as violation report, or you can send me a message with the name, date and what happened.

  • The in-game harassment that I've experienced that is the most frustrating is when someone continually creates a temporary toon and sends a private message and then deletes the toon.

    People do say things in region and in tells that they don't always mean in the heat of the moment. The more public the statement i.e. in region the less it would be harassment and more expressing rage or trolling. Harassment is defined as to disturb persistently; torment, as with troubles or cares; bother continually; pester; persecute.

    Report it using the appropriate channels and enjoy the rest of your day :)

  • So i informed GM Shileah over discord on this exact same problem that I have. If you need more names for identification purposes, check image below. This is only a fraction of /sends that i've received over the last 3-4 months. I've received atleast double the amount you see here, only started documenting this recently.

  • The salt is real. Definitely see a reoccurring theme here with the LMAO comments.

    My buddy and I used to duo in Molvik a lot in the early 2010s before the BG quest additions. We used to get tells similar to these during those times. Don't let salty people dissuade you from playing how you want.

    Keep the screenshots coming. Maybe the salt will dilute out a bit.
  • One of the main reasons I've asked Broadsword to please implement /ignore account;) I've dealt with the worse cyberbullying/ sexual harassment /harassment attacks in game, coming from MULTIPLE players=/ including those who you'd think.. "but so and so would never" .. they make several random toons to continue their harassment=/ even after you /ignore all their known toons. Trial accounts should not be given the /send command either;) will make it so that they can't use trial accts to continue harassments as well.

    These are good ideas. Especially the /ignore account suggestion.
  • Thank you again @Anesur!

    Should you (or anyone else) receive sends like that in Molvik in future, please do let me know and send me a message here or on Discord with the name, time and date.

    Regarding unwanted contact from players - as a general note, please tell them to stop contacting you, then place them on your /ignore list, and should they try to circumvent the ignore filter by contacting you again with a different, let our Customer Support Team know by placing an /appeal with the necessary information (what happened, when did it happen, who did it, and who was the character they contacted you with before)!

    Restricting trial accounts from using send would make communicating for them even more difficult, keep in mind they already do not have access to all communication channels. That said, since trial accounts have been disabled, this shouldn't be an issue anymore going forward.

  • This came in today (1/18/2019) while I was playing Hib/Molv. Rough time around 2:30pm - 2:35pm EST.

    @Lea_Broadsword Here's a suggestion to qwell this little issue: Make a TRIAL CHAT CHANNEL and disable pretty much everything else. This way it can either be selected (for all the actual trial peeps) but those that don't want to see any of that chat can de-select it. Done deal...!
  • One has to guess what their lives must be like to behave like this!
  • Sounds like some peeps can't handle the /release lmfao.

    Although most of this is PG compared to the good ol' Mordred days, it still isn't acceptable to harass anyone to that extent for any reason.

    BAN THEM!

    Not surprising, but is pathetic. Toxic player gets banned multiple times for vile insults to paying customers. BS rewards him. Interesting business choice.

    Just a side note, Lithlet is great solo'er - maybe the best B)
  • he got laughed off the game by the donkeys, it was the biggest embarrassment in the history of daoc LOL
