“Not only will we ban your forum account, but if it's serious enough we'll call up customer service and have you banned from all of our games,” SOE community relations director Linda Carlson told GamesIndustry. “We do not need those individuals as customers.”

Carlson was very clear - it doesn’t matter how influential a player might be, or what position they hold in what guild: “we’ll still ban them”.

“In our games, if you are an exploiter we don't care who you are, how big your guild is, how many people you threaten to take with you when you go,” she said.

“We can control anybody who's playing our games...[but] if we know who you are and you're abusing somebody on Twitter, we will ban your game account and we will not accept you as a customer ever again. It's not always possible to identify people [in that way], but we take that seriously.”

SOE uphold different standards for each of their games: they wouldn’t expect the same kind of behaviour in a competitive shooter like Planetside 2 as they would in a collaborative MMO like EverQuest. But Carlson said standards do need to exist, in clearly-stated form - and that SOE need to reinforce them with bans for bad behaviour both in and outside their games when necessary.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

When I first read this I was like yay... Deal with them fracking exploitiers and anti-social buggers. However, the more I read the more concerned I became. At what point is the line drawn, who are they to go picking around through social media looking for negative comments. Does it end at their own personal pages or will they go beyond that? If I call their game a bucket of trash and hope they drive their cars into a lake are they going to feel the need to ban my ass from all their games.

It never turns out well when you threaten not only your customers but, all of the online community with the ban stick.

 

 

 Seems like there just trying to control the toxic behavoir of gamerers now aday it has become extreamly bad over last few years since u play solo and when u do dunguens ur with people not from ur server so there no consequents to player actions so they dicks to others. Its basicly online bullying i think this is what they trying to get rid of in their game which is fair enough no one like toxic players. I dont think they go ban people who talk badly about their game and even if u do why does it matter u dont wanna play it obviously anyway. There not gonna ban people who critisice there game especialy constuctive critisism. IMO it will make a game better and if ur not a dick to people you have nothing to worry bout anyway so whats the big deal.

So, if I buy a new car, and i talk shyt about it in internet, the company can send an employee to MY house and steal MY car??



Of course, by some peoples logic. Why not? Apparently it's the companies right to do so.

Can you not see the difference between paying for a service and buying a physical product?  A service will have stipulations in place that can at times restrict your access or even revoke your access to those services. This is no different.

I purchased Everquest 1. I own the physical copy. Everquest 1 is free-to-play. I'm no longer paying for a service with SOE. I have an absolute right to play their game because I've purchased the product.

Should you get banned by SOE, will you still have the EQ game you purchased? The "physical" copy? Your $30 (or $60) did NOT buy your access to the game, except possibly your first 30 days. That is what your $15 every month purchased. You will still have your CD (or download). Just no more access to the game(s).

People better start reading and, more importantly, UNDERSTANDING their TOSs and EULAs. Your original purchase did not "give" you unlimited access to their service, in this case EQ1.

If it is free, create another account for free. Get your IP banned, to bad, so sad. SOE "owes" you nothing.

This is what urdriel does not grasp. A car is NOT a service. Neither is a house or any other kind of physical product, NOT a service. A service provider does, indeed, have the right to refuse their services to anyone they deem not worthy, or irresponsible enough.

Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

It has a possibility of going this way, yes. That is when these cases need to become known and then the players react, as a whole. In the same breath is nobody is MAKING you play SOE games. The choice is still yours. Support or don't.

How about when they disagree with you? I suppose you are ok with being hunted down and banned...right?

This is laughable if I decide to go vent frustration somewhere else on the net, because I don't feel like being banned from said companies boards, they can track me down and ban me anyway because I decided to express my opinion elsewhere?

Ok, cool lets take ti a step further and set up the international Internet Police force. So when you are accused of being a internet 'bully' they issue you a citation, and if you offend too many times they come to your house and arrest you. Yeah right how would we pay for it? By taxing your e-mails, VOIP calls, blog posts etc etc.

No I say. Block me from your boards b/c I am being a ass cool I get that, hunt me down because I decided to express my self in an unsavory manner ELSEWHERE? no that is big brother crap and should to be allowed.



SOE is not REMOVING your free speech. sheez! You are still free to be as big of a dick as you desire on the internet. SOE is implementing consequences for that what you spew. HUGE difference.

Want to play SOE games, play by their rules. Don't like their rules? Don't play. Their is no freedoms being censored. No jailtime will be served, hopefully.

PS:
Isn't the "free speech" internet a shining example of the cesspool that humans will create when given no consequences for their actions?

That's exactly it, those opposed to this probably fall in the camp who prefer their chosen forum or lurking ground to be cesspools. Those in it for the forum PVP and striking nerves, getting their +1's or "pwned" acknowledgment from other forum warriors.

For years companies have been asking that feedback be directed in proper channels and not spammed all over, they've asked and warned players to respect one another and to foster constructive debate. It's never worked, this is the consequence of that. Yet this type of person still just wants to argue, simply to cause others as much misery as possible through text. There's no other reason to not get what this is about, not to mention how easily such punishment can be avoided.

Big deal a company doesn't want their site(s) and pages to be a wild west showdown. Can't live with that? You'll have to seek entertainment elsewhere.

Movie theater example again for those who missed it the first time...

Got to a theater, purchase a ticket for a movie, and once inside, start to behave like a douche, making noise and shouting during the movie, launching popcorn and spraying soda on other moviegoers. Let's see how long you last, let's see if they let you finish the movie, let's see if you get a refund.

Point being, if you purchase access to a place with specific rules, be it in "real" life or online, and you break the rules, they can kick you out, and rightfully so, without refunding a cent. They will actually also make you pay the eventual damage you did.

I agree with SOE on this. This part for sure: "We can control anybody who's playing our games...[but] if we know who you are and you're abusing somebody on Twitter, we will ban your game account and we will not accept you as a customer ever again."

I am 100% behind SOE on this. There is no reason threats, or attacks via twitter should be used. Regardless of circumstance. In the real, if those threats happened to you in person. There would be police or the least. The guy saying those threats(in my case) getting the beat down. Thinking you can hide behind the web to use bad behavior is a mistake..

I am glad SOE chooses to do something about it!

In the EU there is political steam growing behind making websites liable for what is on them, ISP's liable for what data is in their traffic. We have soldiers killing their own blamed on video games and every time CoD, GTA or the like come out, the arguments about the detrimental effects of such games are rolled out in the media.

No wonder gaming companies are getting anxious about anything like this. Politicians always need someone to blame and something to mount a cause against. I remember the days when table top roleplaying was going to corrupt the youth of the nation. Now video games have taken the heat of roleplaying.

Facebook is not Sony's house either, yet you think they can write their own rules for sites out of their control?

EA CEO John Riccitiello's on future microtransactions: "When you are six hours into playing Battlefield and you run out of ammo in your clip, and we ask you for a dollar to reload, you're really not very price sensitive at that point in time...We're not gouging, but we're charging."

I can demand you never say 'damn' and if you do, you are not coming into my house.

And that's absolutely fine, although you just said it, so you'll have to throw yourself out.  :-)  But Sony is suggesting I can't say it in my OWN house.

Facebook is NOT your house. Tone done the entitlement a bit, please. The internet is the same as standing on a street corner and spewing your bile at the top of your lungs, expecting only selected ears to hear you. It is nothing like doing anything in the "PRIVACY" (important word there) of your own home.

 

Facebook is not Sony's house either, yet you think they can write their own rules for sites out of their control?

Imagine this situation...

You're regularly go to a pub, the owner knows you, you play nice guy in there.

One day, you have guests at home, the discussion comes on the pub, and you start to call the owner names for whatever reason you can have. What you don't know is that one of the guests is the owner's good friend.

Do you think you will still be welcome in that pub after that?

Sony doesn't write rules for sites out of their control. But they can read those sites, and decide to deny you access on their own property if you are a douchebag on those other sites.

Insult me on Facebook, you better not come to my house afterwards.

My computer is better than yours.

Yeah, except they're not saying only if you insult one of their people, they're saying if they catch you insulting ANYONE, they'll ban you. Big difference. SOE is a mediocre game company, not the internet Keystone Cops.

If I agreed with you we'd both be wrong.

Hey, SOE's Community managerwants to play Internet RoboCop, more power to her. I just can't wait to see what happens when it inevitably  blows up in her face. Like when she bans some random dude on Twitter because she doesn't like him, and comes to find out he just made Anonymous' damage to SOE look like child's play. Or when someone figures out they can win a lawsuit, by not going against SOE/Sony, but by suing her personally. Any number of interesting scenario's are just waiting for this chick to open up by overstepping her little "Station" in life.

What we are talking about here is Sony taking it upon themselves to police the entire fucking internet because some horse-faced nitwit Community Manager didn't get laid enough in high school, has found herself in a dead -end job, and wants to play with what little bit of power she can grab..

And if she's reading this, she can ban my ass for all I care, it's not hard to find my accounts. Numbnuts broad makes Smedley look like a freakin' Grade A genius.

No, both good examples.  Its a service and they can ban whoever they feel like for any reason unless its illegal discrimination.

A bar could easily refuse service to a known child abuser or KKK member simply because they do not want their custom. SoE is well within their right to refuse service to a douchbag or an internet troll.

Also, they wont be wasting staff time on trawling your social network to see if you were ever mean to anyone. Its clearly policy relating to abuse / trolling that is directed towards SoE or its staff.

Furthermore, any person with a brain has privacy settings set up for social media. SoE checking your troll history should be the last of your concerns.  I would be more concerned about new aquantences and employers checking that stuff.  Although if you direct abuse at them, and you have your real name and details on display, chances are you will find yourself banned.

Some of you are just really ridiculous.  If your abusing people and giving them death threats I can see this policy being needed and being used. But if you are critical of their game then that is just plane retarded that they would ban you for something like that.  And that is just what they are doing... I'm going to give my own scenario now...

 

Player 1 : "Patch 4.5xx sucks!  There are bugs that were reported on the test server and they made it to the live client, how does that happen?" "This is the wrong time to be screwing up, the game is hemorrhaging players and **** ***** games are around the corner which will take more players" "These developers need to get their act together"

 

Player 2 : "I know, I have no idea what the developers are doing!" "Do they even pay attention to bug reports on the test server? Isn't the test server to test things before they push it out?"

 

Fanboi : "You guys need to get off of (Insert SOE game developers here)  They have a really hard job, stop trolling and come back in 3 weeks when everything is fixed"

 

Player 1 : "You mean fixed like the hotfix they just put up 15 mins ago that is causing people to crash to desktop?"

 

SOE rep :  We apologize for the inconvenience, again.  But personal attacks on the Development team WILL NOT BE TOLERATED!  A few of you can expect to hear from me soon.

 

Player 1 :  Personal attacks?  Wait, huh?

 

Player 2 :  LOL wat?

 

Player 1 and 2 try to log in 3 hours later and receive this message.

Your forum account has been suspended for 1 week for continued attempts to violate the SOE Forum guidelines. Please use this time to familiarize yourself with the guidelines.. If you wish to appeal this ban, please contact forum-admin@soe.sony.com. 

 

 

If what player 1 and 2 said offended anyone, I would like to take some time out my day to introduce them to this place I call the REAL WORLD, because it's obvious they have never been in it.

If they can do it then they should allow players to use those same tools also.

For example : If I blacklist xXTwinTurboKiller666Xx ,blacklistin should have effect on every account he have on that game,every SOE game and if they know his social media accounts then on those too.

Which means they give me all his characters names of any game they know he is playing.

Or if i ignore someone then all of his accounts gets ignored.

 

So, did ESO have a successful launch? Yes, yes it did.
