Racist Chat Worst I've Ever Seen In A Game!

This is by far the worst game for racist chat comments I’ve ever played.  It’s pathetic.  Why isn’t anything ever done about it?

When reporting people is so difficult, it invites people to say and act in anyway they choose.


If they hired some interns to just monitor this kind of stuff, it would vanish over night (with a few loudly publicized bans of course)

For now just block those you don't want to hear from.

BTW, friendly FYI, those you've blocked can still see what you typed.

You can put whatever offends you in the chat filter so that you don't have to read it.

This is true, our chat is really quite tame in comparison.

lol it is the worst(and I've played a lot of MMOs). I have blocked so many people I'm surprised I still see people chat. One night some guy was advertising his guild as "white poeple only".I think maybe two people joined in, everyone else ignored him and kept talking about the game. I think a lot of people ignore chat since I see a lot of the same people talking in it daily.

 

Just as fyi this thread will probably be deleted....last one like this I saw was removed pretty fast as Daum tries to avoid the subject. It's kinda annoying tbh. They need a way to report people in chat. In other games it screen shots, logs all chat and sends a report to the powers that be. Not here.

To be honest I've got to agree, MMOs are my game of choice, and out of all of them, chat in this game is by far the worst for racism/sexism/religious hatred/homophobia etc etc. Setting up a tab without world chat is the only way I've found to save what brain cells I have. Energy cost makes absolutely no difference it seems.

I have yet to see any racist remarks in chat since release, maybe because I play on a European server (Croxus) and the race baiting over here in Europe is not as bad as in the US. Also we seem to be less inclined to see racism in every little remark someone makes so trolls don't get the tears they are looking for.

Just a quick question: how is it that you lot (I presume you are from the US, but correct me if I am wrong) have no problems with "blacks only", "Latino only", etc..but cry racism when whites do it? You Americans do realize that this is downright crazy and extremely hypocritical right?

Or are you one of those "white privilege/guilt" lunatics?

I play on EU (Jordine) and it's just as toxic from what I've seen :P

Which server/region do you play on? Barely seen anything remotely resembling racism apart from in minor tangents during a long discussion some people had that no doubt cost them 100 energy each or something about mass immigration in Europe.

I could imagine people shout out their views or more often, intentionally try to upset people in NA though. EU (at least Jordine) is so peaceful, almost boring.

If you think this chat is bad, go play Tera when they release a new class and everyone floods back and then message me on here that you're sorry that you even thought that this chat was anywhere near as repulsive, sexist, homophobic, racist, etc. Cause you honestly haven't seen anything...

Oh and FYI a GM for that game told people who were complaining in chat that this guy was being the above mentioned and said to just block him and move on. They don't care about this stuff and honestly that's why you can block people and edit your chat. I suggest you do so because unfortunately the only response from these companies you will get is an out of sight out of mind mentality.

Maybe you are more sensitive to these kind of things Thaiden. Not playing on that server though, so can't make a judgement on that myself. :)

Oh wow. Hmm. I guess I just didn't pay much attention then or maybe I was always in another channel from whenever stuff would go down. I've seen other kinds of behavior that could be described as toxic though.

How often do you experience this? Several times a day?

Depends on whether you need to be sensitive to pick up very blatant and obvious racism tbh :D

Turning off chat or blocking racist players (which I do) doesn't solve the problem it only puts it out of my own site.  I play in NA on the Uno Server.

Boo hoo muh chat is toxic. Get thicker skin. Words on the internet doesn't mean jack shit. Racist, hateful, toxic, whatever you guys call it, is all just words. This new generation of people is going to kill our society. Muh safe space, muh feels. Block it if it offends you so much.

It is toxic and it's the service providers responsibility to do something about it.  BTW, I'm a 60 year old retired soldier.  Your condescending attitude is not appreciated or helpful.

Didn't you get the memo? Whites are not allowed to have anything for themselves, they are born with a 666 behind their left ear when they are born...at least if you are to believe all those SJW's.

They put methods in game for you to handle your own problems. Chat filter, block list, etc. Asking the GMs to waste time on words is selfish at best. None of that shit matters within the game world. I'd prefer a game full of toxic assholes than a game where everyone holds their tongue in fear of getting banned because of a someones feelings.
