Squad community

Recommended Posts

There is so much toxicity on the internet, a very difficult topic for many developers and social media sites. It is impossible to tackle every little issue, but that's not what this post is about. When people step over the line, we're not talking about just abusive comments, people can be blocked/banned/deleted... it's when trolls go beyond that...
 

- Seeking you out on Facebook, messaging friends / family members / calling your work.
- Sending death threats online / via post.
- Creating fake accounts to get around blocks / bans just to continue.
- Editing medium / hate groups / channels just to continue.
- Stalking online
 

It's not just squad, but many games online brings together all characters. The developers are sick and tired of it all. You would expect adults to be mature and respectful, obviously that's not the case. You realise people commit suicide or self harm because of this, but that is probably funny to you. Start acting your ages, this is a computer game, but it is meant to be a mature community from Project Reality which has itself matured into this game. Take a look at yourself, take a look at how you are wasting your life. People play games to escape the reality of life / work. Not to come online and be harrassed. Grow up or get out.


Developers should have the full power to game ban people that cross that line.

Is this just a vent? Is it just a waste of time? Probably.

Some of the things you've mentioned are very serious issues that are realistically a police issue, not an admin issue. 

 

Is this aimed at a particular individual/group or entirely random?

 

At the end of the day anybody doing the aforementioned points is either very immature, or has serious psychological issues.

OWI has recently taken steps to deal with overly toxic individuals.

We decided to start taking more actions against problematic players in Squad.


Starting from today, people out to ruin Squad rounds for other people will be facing possible Squad wide bans on all licensed servers. These bans won't be permanent (Unless extreme cases) but should serve as a lesson for problematic players. Repeated cases can result in a permanent ban, players will still be able to play on custom servers.


That means that licensed server owners can report players doing offenses such as, but not limited to, mass TKing on purpose, "griefing", extreme foul language or other in game sabotaging. 


Reports have to follow the format pinned in #problem-players posted by Dogsbody and will be administrated by yours truly.

These are for serious offenses and not for every single player you ban of your server, so please think an extra time before posting.
There will need to be undeniable evidence.

 


If it involves real life harassment when the catalyst and harassment begun from the video game and it's social platforms(Forums, Discord etc),  game developers do have the power to take action they see fit against the individual

I do suggest if anyone does receives real life death threats or harassment on social media etc to contact the police as majority of nations these days take these things quite seriously and will lay charges. If you have received death threats or any form of harassment etc from an individual in this community in-game, on the forums, discord etc Get in contact with the server admin it took place in a server, or get in contact with one of the moderators if it took place on one of OWI's social platforms.
