Assuming we are all adults or at least have experience playing MMORPG, we all have an idea on what not to do in the game. For Guild Wars 2, there are also set of rules that have to be followed. We are quite ignorant to these because it’s either we didn’t read it or just passed by it and ignored it. So if ever there is something that we did against the policies of Guild Wars 2, ignorance wouldn’t be an excuse.
Guild Wars 2 Gold: Reminder from ArenaNet
This might be an old post coming from ArenaNet but it is still in good practice that we get reminded by it especially in creating character names and behaving inside the game. Here is the original reminder posted by ArenaNetSupportTeam from Reddit:
We want to clear up some of the confusion about GW2 name and behavior suspensions. To keep Guild Wars 2 a pleasant place to be, we take action against racist names, hate speech, and other unacceptable behavior. We have suspended some accounts involved in the use of offensive character names or inappropriate chat. The number of account blocks is miniscule: less than .001% of our total player base.
When an account is blocked for a chat offense, the account is given a three-day suspension. When an account is blocked for an offensive name, the player is required to rename the character name and, in most cases, the account is also given a three-day suspension.
We have reviewed all the name suspensions currently in place. Where we could give some leeway, we removed the account suspension, which will allow those players to rename the character and rejoin the game. However, for substantially offensive names, we will keep the full three-day suspensions in effect.
In a few posts on Reddit and on fan forums, players have claimed they were suspended for using a harmless-sounding character name, when in fact they were suspended for a different and truly offensive character name on their account. Others claimed that they were not told why they were suspended, but the game does give a message that states the reason for the suspension. In every case we have double-checked, the action taken on the account was appropriate.
However, we’d like to clear up any misconceptions. If you think you were unfairly suspended, or if you’d like to know the specific chat or character name that got you suspended, post your character name and we’ll reply in graphic detail with the reason for the block. Warning: NSFW ahead!
It is a good way to remind ourselves that even though living a life in the digital world, we still have to concern ourselves with the rules and regulations since there are other people as well playing the game. They might find it offensive or worse, they might feel that Guild Wars 2 is not a fun and safe environment anymore due to lack of application of the rules.
