PSA-Player Shaming

Recommended Posts

Maverick V6

Recently I have had a surge of reports from our members as well as guests outside of our community stating that some of our community members are attacking, harassing, or being abrasive to others (especially towards twitch streamers). I am unsure why people feel there is a need to assume that every time you are killed it is the result of a cheater. On top of that, I don't understand their desire to try and engage with these individuals in a very public fashion by falsely accusing or harassing them. Regardless, these action must end. You have to remember that you are representing our community at all times. If you are a streamer yourself then you MUST be even more careful to avoid such interactions/accusations assuming you do not have adequate undeniable proof that the other party if being malicious. Over time this will paint a very poor picture for our player base and will lead to terrible PR issues.   

Behavior towards non community members that breaks any of rules on mediums outside of our control will be subject to the same actions if they were conducted here. This includes official forums and servers.

If you are found to be shaming others you will be first warned. If further problems occur then it may lead to a temporary ban, loss of membership or even full ban from =UWS= and all our services. 

Be respectful. Don't vent your frustration on others.

While this shouldn’t be a problem in general can I ask that you clarify what you would call shaming? For the record, and in the interest of specifics.

As an example, 

(hypothetically)

You are playing EFT and you get killed in a matter that to you feel is suspicious. Out of frustration you see that your killer is XXXxXXXTV and you decide to hop in their Twitch channel while he/she is streaming and actively harass/accuse this player that they are hacking and that they are a piece of shit...etc. 

-or-

You and you squad get wiped by a Clan and you decide to go to their forums or even the EFT forums or Reddit and actively shame them or accuse them of hacking. You do this knowing you do not have undeniable proof that they were cheating.  

 

Steamers from =UWS= should above all do their best to avoid shaming other communities based on a perceived event that happened in a few seconds of play. If you have evidence that they were hacking....undeniably....then feel free to report it to their respective gaming communities or whatever.  But there is no point to shame an entire community based on the actions of one person. We have hundreds of members in our community and it can just take one person to give us a PR headache. We are well equipped to handle it, but if it can be avoided then that would be preferred.

This is unacceptable behaviour.  Sometimes, when our squad got wiped by pubs, they would come on TS3 and give a sincere "gg" and compliment the fire exchange that occured.  It's that kind of positivity, not negativity, that we should be spreading.  Do not tarnish our name...
