World Of Warcraft Players Call For Blizzard To Act Against Toxic In-Game Behavior
Reddit user, who has shared their experience with World of Warcraft, has asked the company for more action to stop players from saying hurtful things about the game.
There is no secret that World of Warcraft has a lot of toxic content, especially in the PUG culture. But is Blizzard doing everything it can to address this behavior?
Blizzard has recently revealed that they have some chat reporting improvements for patch 9.1.5. However, they will eventually need to enforce the new system if it is serious about making changes.
World Of Warcraft players call for Blizzard to take action against toxic in-game behavior
Many players will be quick to criticize Blizzard for trying too much to reduce the sexual content of the game. However, these are separate issues and the removal is not as disruptive as actual harassment.
Many players enjoy expressing their opinions and referring to other games. However, World of Warcraft’s requirement for competitive content is a problem.
Players have become more toxic since the introduction of Mythic+ to Legion. There is more at stake when it comes to completing content. It’s easy for players to blame others if things don’t go their way.
Blizzard’s new system will inform the player who reported it if any action has been taken. It will also warn the offending player that their behavior is unacceptable. This is because it isn’t about banning players from the game; it is about changing the culture.
If the Terms of Service are violated in a way that is unacceptable, long-lasting or permanent bans may be imposed.
It all boils down to how well Blizzard enforces its new rules and the ways they can change player behavior over time. This won’t happen overnight.
