Exetreme Harassment that needs to be handled.

I wasn't sure where else to post this, But I do need to get into contact with a GM or a Dev. I have had some serious accusations thrown against me, on an RP server. None of it In Character interactions. These are serious OOC allegations, and it's causing a issue in my personal life now. Some assistance would be appriciated ASAP. Otherwise I will take further action due to negligence on ANET's Part. Sorry if this sames angry, or toxic. But, it's becoming a serious problem, and I'd like to see it dealt with.

  • Thank you. I've sent in the ticket, and I'm awaiting a response.

    Just wanted to add this, it might be unrelated to this issue, still: there are no RP servers in GW2.

    The game runs on a megaserver system. As such, even if certain servers where more frequented with RP guilds in the past, no matter which server you join, you will be mixed and matched with players from any server in PvE, instances or Spvp in the current version of the game. The only 2 cases in which server selection matter are WvW and NA or EU region.

    I'm aware of this. I mean, I primarily RP. Using the Tarnished Coast Server as a hub.

    Because this is serious! Block is obvious and I can't imagine what his further action could be. Block ss report and if it is serious then it could result in a ban. W/o further info which I don't require it could be a legit concern of harassment or just some minor thing that caused unintended offense. Who knows nowadays

    WvW band wagoners ruin the game mode just like Karen's ruin these forums.

    If you feel like you are in danger I would contact your local authorities. I know you are not explicitly saying that but I wanted to be sure.

                                                              There is a 50% chance you will not agree with me and a 50% chance I will not agree with you

    What happened? I'm curious to know. I'm trying to imagine a scenario that could occur in-game without access to a persons personal information that would cause distress in real life, but I just come up with a blank. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

    Its become very common that someone can make accusations about a person and then other people that person knows believe it without a shred of evidence, or with just out-of-context logs (OP mentioned some OOC stuff), etc. Its actually become something of an epidemic itself that people can do this, harassment campaigns can do massive damage even without any real evidence or information.

    For example a person can message someone's partner in game and say "they're cheating", do you think it'll just be ignored? All they need is a basic knowledge of those people on a normal social level of familiarity, to cause some trouble.

    Its kind of like the social equivalent of "photoshopping" an image.

    use block. Yours personal troubles and other people vision can be absoliutly paralel is u use block. Try learn use it.

    Also on some game modes u need make visible only specific chat, for exsample on spvp remove checkbox from say/map/team and some other chat.

    And remember if u want find mud - u will find it, if u want get fun - u will get it.

    These are serious OOC allegations, and it's causing a issue in my personal life now.

    so in this way no one from support can help you. You need find psychological specialist(preferably from India or China get it from personal experience) and ask help from him, or from parents.

    want solid balance ? - play chess.

    That's pretty evil, I never thought of it like that.

    In my personal experiences within guild wars I've been accused of being a drug dealer by a thief I repeatedly killed in WvW and I currently have one stalker who claims to be in the United States Marine Corps who has me added to their "list" to try to follow me to kill me in game, because of my religion (represented by my guild tag) and the fact that I beat him repeatedly as well (not sure if it's with terms to post the screen shots here). I never reported either, I enjoy the competition and find it quite amusing because of how ridiculous it sounds.

    This is not to take away from the OP's experience, it's just my own personal ones within gaming haven't been anything serious and is the basis for why I couldn't think of a situation that could happen in game that could affect a person outside of it.
