Howdy greet peeps,

Saw someone repeatedly saying "Heil Hitler" in the chat.
Where & how to report him? I have a screenshot of both his account & character name, whilst he is saying it.

This is utterly unacceptable, so where do I report him, if you please?
Just trying to keep the community clean & friendly!

Much greetings,
Dukhat

You can report players using the in game ticketing system. (https://support.trionworlds.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1494)
Was the person being serious about it or were they just joking?

im not really sure what exactly it is you want to report. like griffix said, you can use the in game ticket system, but filing a report because someone kept typing out heil hitler really isnt racist, and really isnt a reportable offense that i know of.

This would only be reportable if it got abusive or rose to the level of a real life threat.

Honestly, you're being ridiculous and should be more than a little embarrassed OP.

I dunno man, for the looks of it it seems that it must have been some ahole provoking the German community ingame.
Remember that we have a big group of german players and there are always aholes for everything.

actually you can report them for spam. you can block the person to so you dont have to see their chat. but there is an in game feature through the main menu.

Come on people, racism may or may not be the right term here, but praising nazism is a felony in a significant number of (european) countries, and it is at the very least very offensive, whether the person means it or not.

You can report the person with the chat command that duction game, or you can do it with the same form where you can report bugs. If you use the form you can paste links to your screenshots, though presumably Trion can look at chat logs.

My advice would be to just leave it. I know from experience that they simply don't care, and be careful not to mention the name of the offender, as then you're likely to get punished instead.

Before F2P reporting might have been worth your time, but now it's just a waste.

I don't think they cared then either. I am disgusted at how many times the same people get reported for harassment and griefing and nothing happens. It is supposed to be against their COC.

Conflict of interest, especially when the harassing person is a big spender.
Rules are good, money is better!

Frankly i much rather have a few harassers let go than have the aura of fear policy that Guild wars 2pulled at least for a while.
All that is really needed is a permanent ignore list.

I agree, The Company does not seem to care. Sony, however, cares a LOT so you can also report them there, if you're on PS3. I don't know if there's any higher level on PC, but Xbox has a similar reporting system.

This sounds like a minor offense to me. Seen much worse in game that continues over a long period.

Recently I reported two players - one for harrassing pretty much everyone, and one for explicit lewd (disgusting!) language. They are both still playing. However, I don't know if they were warned by The Company, or maybe their clans? Cuz they both have toned things down quite a bit. At least there's that.

I believe some people have had their zone chat switched off so they can't talk in it fir a period then the ban had lifted and they were back to being an idiot in zone chat

You should lad, this is highly offensive and a criminal activity in Germany, Czech Republic & Austria.
Posting these words is a direct insult to all the things that have happened during to WW2.

For me, unacceptable.

Online game publishers that have an international presence are very wary of any references to nazism because most expressions of nazism are outlawed in certain countries including Germany, and hosting expressions of nazism can result in having access to the servers walled off from those countries.

The company does take action against text chat expressions of racism and intolerance and it has banned player accounts because of those particular kinds of EULA/TOS violations.

I think (more like wonder, because I don't know) this is a younger generation thing. I see it on twitchtv all the time, and it rarely gets much attention their either.

I'm part of the middle aged, NA generation, and that is pretty offensive. Not that it would be for everyone my age probably. It's just a different environment growing up I suspect.

Just wanted to bring you a public service announcement:

The /ignore feature doesn't work. When you use it, it will ignore chat from said person, until you log off. The next time you log on, they will no longer be ignored.

I wish the Devs would fix this, but I'm guessing it's not very high on their priority list.

Wait a minute! What's wrong with racism? I openly put racist remarks on the forums. I say Sensoths smell like big apes and liberate look like chimps. You can't trust a Casti with you life. Indogenes are a bunch of two faced lizards. May the ERep wipe those votan scoundrels off this rock once and for all.

Don't judge me cause Im into Irathian girls. I always bring my full body protection suit just in case so I don't contract any dirty Irath diseases since the EGO shield doesn't do a good enough job. If I ever go stage 4 put a bullet in my head.

It's his sig.

Edit;
Oops, that was that Hitler pic, thanks for taking it down.

BTW,
"Godwin's law (or Godwin's Rule of N A Z I Analogies)[1][2] is an Internet adage asserting that "As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1" [2][3]—​ that is, if an online discussion (regardless of topic or scope) goes on long enough, sooner or later someone will compare someone or something to Hitler or Nazism."

Since no one really made it clear, the guy had a picture of Hitler up with what I assumed was the N word in a different language (I could be wrong). A mod replaced it with a picture of bears and gave the person an infraction for the hitler picture.

there is no point in reporting them for racist remarks, i sent a ticket about a group of fools using the 'n' word and using the term white power remark, that was on 25/5 no reply back from trion 3 weeks ago and still see the player using racist remarks in zone chat like its nothing..
