I just got a 3 day ban from funcom for using an offensive clan name. That offensive clan name had been used by another clan whom wiped me 25 times including stations and godded me 3 times over a period of a month. They had land claimed most build spots, not allowing anyone to build in secure locations. And, used exploits. I had reported that clan for griefing/exploiting/excessive land claim etc multiple times. Of which, nothing had been done.
That clan with the ‘offensive name’ was becoming less active. They changed their name and I was (with help) able to wipe one of their bases. After the attack, which they defended at the very end, I changed my clan name to their ‘offensive one’ to mock their tyranical behavior.
1 day after that I got banned.
So, this clan used that offensive name for months. After being reported, they continued to use that name for a month. 1 day after I use it , I get banned.
I have over 3000 hours in this game. Over and over again, I have seen offensive content, cheats, exploits, griefing and other violations of the terms of service that go unpunished. Even after multiple reports.
You can create an unraidable base under 2 layers of mesh, attack anyone without fear of repercussion, get reported for months and nothing is done about it.
And, if you have a funcoms admin ear, you can get someone a ban for a name you used for months.
I sure the folks whom reported me are the same folks that used that offensive clan name for months. And, that they are rolling with laughter.
The ban was worth the raid, the loot and the chance to mock you with your own name.
I would like to post some very offensive content about funcom and it’s enforcement of it’s terms of service here. _______ But, I’m sure everyone here already knows that it is a joke.
