Like I said this was my first interaction with a server admin since I had started playing the game.
I never bothered to read the rules because as far as I could tell, the game was player regulated.
I understand that I deserve my share of the blame, he told me to stop, and I continued on about the rules. It just strikes me as unjust that asking a server admin about the particulars of a rule is deserving of a temp ban, whereas another player is asking questions about the same thing and gets reasonable answers.
But he made 0 effort with me to be reasonable at all. I’m human too, and I’m not a trolling dick who goes around trying to piss people off in video games. I was asking reasonable questions. It felt like he was just dictating his personal feelings over the lobby, not enforcing rules subjectively as an administrator should.
Regarding your first line- I thought it was rather simple, too. Don’t be a dick, don’t verbally attack people.
Okay cool, so asking admin what he considers verbal attacks and what he doesn’t is worthy of a temp ban?
I was asking why “Nigga” (I said N-word in game) is considered a verbal attack, but “Cunt”, “Fag”, and “Gay” are not. Why is that so unreasonable for me to ask? The other player asking got an answer.
I’m annoyed because I wasn’t verbally attacking Papsi, at all. I was asking questions. I’ve said that a dozen times now, and I genuinely mean it. I wasn’t attacking Papsi, but he seemed to think I was.
I really don’t feel like asking questions about the specifics of a rule is worthy of a temp ban with the reason “language.” I wasn’t using offensive language at anyone. I said “Nigga” in an endearing way the game prior, he told me not to use derogatory language, and I apologized. Then the game where I was kicked I was asking about what he considers derogatory and what he doesn’t, and he gives me nothing but warnings and threats of kick.
And now you’re telling me that it was entirely my fault, and I’m completely to blame for not listening to the admin. It makes me feel like administration as a whole doesn’t actually care about the players/player experience, but they just care about players doing what they say. I know I’m not very quick to the point and direct, but I most certainly am reasonable. I just want an understanding of what I did wrong vs. what the other player “Miley Cyrus” did right. I thought we were asking the same thing in different ways.
