Knight at Arms
@KSHMR , I don't see how tolerating those who actively harass others into quitting the game is good for sever population. Getting rid of one guy who makes eleven people want to quit doesn't kill Bannerlord, it helps it keep living. Would you suggest we keep hackers, tk'ers and game delayers to bolster server population? I'm guessing you wouldn't, because those guys' actions impede your enjoyment. If you could recognize that horrific abuse does the same for other people, then I think the logic of banning toxics makes sense. Also, to my understanding, Riot permabans people who are consistently abusive in chat. At least they did for a time, and honestly, good on them.
For the record, I say this as someone who loves banter in chat. However, there's a difference between making fun of someone's K/D and threatening to sexually assault them. I think we can have plenty of toxicity and crap flinging without tolerating hate speech and open abuse.
The more I read your posts, the more I like you . Although I don't know that I would define the banter you are talking about as toxic. I can't really imagine any "good" kind of toxic behavior, by definition. But, semantics! And I guess this is why rules need to be written.
They use it either to act the way they wish they could irl, or to blow off steam. Hiding behind anonymity just makes them a coward
I don't know that it's even that. I see similar behavior on Facebook all the time from people who are using their actual names and profile pictures. Something about not interacting personally makes people feel like they can get away with anything I guess.
I don't think that it's necessarily that TW does not care. Things are moderated pretty well on this forum I would say, and honestly I don't really see why they can't just adapt the forum's code of conduct to have an official set of rules for MP.
I think they are just not getting around it yet, or perhaps they don't think it's worth it since this is temporary and eventually custom servers will replace what we have now.
