Go Away. Take your sad and hurt feelings and find some other safe space. This is the internet, if some salty language bothers you, then this is REALLY not the place for you.

 

WG has more than enough measures in place to keep your feelings safe. They have a curse filter, the ability to turn chat off, the ability to block users and messages.

 

It's time you kids grow up, tuck in your skirt, and learn how to deal with things in a manner other than cry to someone that somebody called you a bad word.

 

More companies need to stop listening to the snowflakes, maybe actively start banning them for crying so much. If it's not a threat of physical harm, then ignore it.

 

And for people who think my way of thinking is the problem, well I'm sorry, but it's not. People aren't here to keep your feelings safe, we're not here to coddle you. Kids now days get more than enough of that in places where they should be learning to be adults and deal with things in an adult way. Instead they cry, when they cry, things happen. So they learn that if they keep crying more and more things happen. Then we start this vicious cycle of every time someone doesn't like something, they cry, and it gets changed. That's a slippery slope the start going down because it has no end. It will get to the point where just posting on the forums about what a good day you had will hurt someone's feelings, be classed as racist, or any other asinine thing the snowflakes can think of.

 

YOU, and EVERYONE else clicked ACCEPT to THEIR rules, if you can't have some control and follow THEIR rules, then it's best YOU go away.  That or accept your chat bans until you are perma chat-banned.

It's time for those with a lack of self-control to do some growing up.

Unless they are threatening you, deal with it.  In the US, we have this little thing called the First Amendment.  It is there for a darn good reason. When government or anyone else starts deciding what is acceptable speech and what is not, we lose our rights.  Remember that the political power swings both ways.  Guaranteed rights matter.  

 

Now if people are shooting you in game from your side, then WG should do something about that.

 

The 1st Amendment protects you from GOVT actions and reprisals.  This is a private space, the 1st amendment does not apply.  You might want to learn the law before you try to use it.  They made this game for people 13 years old and up, and therefore made and enforce rules to have it as such.  When you clicked "I agree" when you accept every patch, you agree to follow THEIR rules.  If you break them, you will get chat banned and if you keep breaking them, you will get perma chat banned, that policy isn't going to change.  So many need to grow up and get some self-control.

This is only a bandaid solution as the problems are much deeper, some of it has to do with the games where you know no choice but to depend on other players and the other is that people got loads and loads of problems on their own. Handing out bans like they are halloween candy doesn't fix the games nor fix the people and these game companies can do a lot better.

 

Once they are perma-chat banned, then that person is fixed, so handing them out like candy will fix the issue, it will just take awhile.

Apparently you're not very bright, if you were then you'd be able to differentiate between questions phrased in the exact same manner as the post that was made and the questions were asked about. It's okay though, one day you'll get it. 

 

Thanks for proving my point. :)

The only point you've made up to now is that you're a whiny little snow flake that probably lacked the intestinal fortitude to do anything worthwhile with your life and thus feel the need to defend others that believe as you do.

"It's no secret that online games like OverwatchLeague of Legends, and many others suffer from toxic communities. From raging over sub-optimal team compositions or under-performing teammates to slinging insults steeped in racism, sexism, and homophobia, it's a problem that has plagued gaming pretty much as long as we've been connecting our computers to play with and against each other online. 

Now, more than 30 major gaming companies, including Blizzard, Riot, CCP, Twitch, Discord and Epic are teaming up to tackle the problem collectively through an organization called the Fair Play Alliance. .."

Where are YOU, wg?

 

I play games to get away from the reality that there are so many libtard commie snowflakes walking around in our society today. I'm trying to get away from people like you, go back to mother russia you commie freak.

If you are seriously worried about what someone says to you in an online game,,, I think we found the person that needs to grow up.

That totally solves every problem, ignore it & it will never come to your house and hurt you.

GUN? I don't see a gun, there's no gun la la l al al al al ala la la la l a, etc...

 

The idea ANYONE should put up with any type of open, public, in your face abuse is unconscionable & it needs to be addressed immediately & taken a LOT more seriously than it is currently. Too often it's being ignored.

Abuse like this leads to things like suicide, self esteem issues, depression & NOT ONE of these people needs to grow their skin any thicker cause they are not the issue.

What you're talking about is the equivalent of telling your child before their soccer game to not bother trying cause they're going to lose anyway as they aren't good enough to matter.

But that's ok with you, isn't it, cause if you tell them this over & over enough times, they will grow a thicker skin. Right??

 

You are literally blaming everyone who feels hurt by being abused with having less than perfect ability to allow it to run off their backs, which by the way, it completely ridiculous as there is NO such thing as a thick skin when it comes to abuse.

Suggesting anyone can tolerate abuse & not be negatively affected by it is denial at its worst.

Your attitude is more than ignorance, it is pitiful to think in the year 2018, there are still people out there who feel acting & pretending to be tough will make you tough. Becoming tough comes from learning, not from being abused.

THIS TYPE OF THING DAMAGES EVERYONE WHO EXPERIENCES IT, which is why it is called & referred to as TOXIC behavior. It poisons people.

 

Funny you should mention losing a soccer game. If i am not mistaken it does not matter if they lose since they will get a participation trophy just for showing up.  This is the cancer that is screwing up kids today. They never learn how to lose or admit it when another player has way more skill.  The only thing wrong with WoT is it revolves around winning the match plain and simple and that alone will cause toxicity from those who play to win towards those who just want to have fun.

Let's not have winners in the game. Everyone just gets participation points. No one will need to yell at another. Yay! We will all be considered winners!

pick up the slack WG, lots of wanab's  that need the to be banned. clean up your game. 

you mite find many of us have grand children we would invite to the game if you cleaned it up. 

 

always wondered how the folks that promote toxicity would feel if someone confronted and unloaded a verbal triad for 10 minutes on their grandparents, mother , wife , kids, for cutting them off in traffic. 

 

would you tell them to get a thicker skin?  or would you get out of the passenger seat and go after them?  heck, even yourself, would you just stand there and take it? or would you punch them upside the head and go about your day?

 

there is no reason to insult people playing this game, for the simply fact you have no ideal who is on the other side and the rest of us do not want to be party to it.

Sadly there are some that will never learn, even after being perma chat banned.
