I was just repeatedly harassed in-game by a user called Cyanide. I know this is the internet, and flaming and such should be expected, but he has taken things too far in-game to the point where I could actually not even ignore him because he was attacking me personally in-game through the use of his friends. Then when I just tried to vote kick them out of the game, they accused me of doing such things and the majority rules in this case. I ended up being kicked out of the game while being called numerous names. Which should not happen under any case scenario. As a person, you shouldn’t be bullied to where you aren’t able to enjoy what you want to do. This game can be frustrating, because, well, it’s competitive. Competitive things are one of the most frustrating things in my book. But that does not give anyone the right to just think they can go around and own the world because they aren’t doing so hot in one thing.
Generally I can handle anything I get called, because, you know, you shouldn’t take these things seriously on the internet, but then he had to go and ruin my game-play and this player really should not doing such actions lightly or without consequence.
I would love actions to be taken against this player (Cyanide (Mud was his friend’s name)), but it doesn’t have to happen. What really needs to happen is the ability to report people. This could be in chat logs, anything like that really. But it needs to be done. If there is somebody abusing the vote kick feature like what just happened to me, the privilege to use it should be revoked from that player. I don’t know how you guys are on staffing for anything like this, but the success of this game is doing pretty well, I’m sure you can manage hiring.
Features to add:
Report a player
The right of voting revoked if abused. (Because trust me, it’s getting abused)
