We left the game over that issue as well. If funcom is not going to moderate then I guess we will go elsewhere.
Going to a private server, playing solo is not the option either. Like to play multiplayer.
Hopefully they will get that working so this kind of trash gets handled, but I doubt it.
I had spoken with a dev almost 9 months ago and he basically told me they will not do anything, didnt seem to care about the rampant neo-n a z i behavior, building swastikas, racial slang, etc.
Took pictures, videos, provided all that stuff to both steam and the dev I spoke with.
Nothing happens, nobody cares until they start losing money then they might fix it, but they wont, they will talk about it sure, maybe even tell you they are working on something, but it wont happen.
Even if it did change, it would not be a report feature just a mute of some kind probably. Funcom has no teeth, you really think a reputable game company would allow this stuff?
Its 2018, you telling me that a game company does not have the foresight to implement some kind of asshat control?
If that kind of stuff bothers you, dont hold your breath on a fix soon.
They had 9 months probably longer to get this under control.
I wager they dont moderate because they dont want to pay money to someone to take care of this stuff, imagine how many people they would need, 24/7 moderating? Or, programming a report feature which captures text or allows for screenshot to be sent in.
Its not like its a free game, people have to pay to get in.
Funcom will not do this, does that sound like a company that cares about its consumers/investors?
We are on our own, and yeah you can fight back, but be prepared to get a chatbang from those asshats, you might get help from other players.
On our server it was full all the time, not a single eff was given from any other players outside the offending clan.
It ruined gameplay needless to say, people would leave over it, whole clans would vacate but dont worry it would fill up again with a fresh batch of people…
Process would repeat, maybe a few would stay, do you want to play around about of idiots? Cause that is what will be left, they push people out of the game, what is left after that?
Not that many people care or maybe too young to understand how that affects people. They dont care if people leave the game, probably 100 more will invest into it and and maybe a small percentage will be posting something like this in the forums.
I havent seen the game for a while, we split a few months ago, but I imagine its only a matter of time people start even worse stuff that we have prob seen.
I have seen stuff from this game, spill over into real world over the dumbest s h i t. Guess what?
Did funcom or steam offer any kind of support? I mean this started in the game right? Nope, nothing, nada, poor guy was on his own…
Funcom could at least take the official out of the server name, since they dont do any kind of moderation no matter how offensive these people get. Put up a notice that it is not moderated, like on the box before people invest into this garbage.
Love the game but not going to invest anything into a company that allows that.
