Disclaimer:  Comment intended for humorous consideration and not necessarily the viewpoint of management.

Their are social standards in everything you do in life. It's different in a bar or mall or your home.  A game is no different. The mistake some people make is that they think all people are decent and that they would have no reason to use a name far a character that is 2 sex acts thrown together. But we have lots of 49 year old immature adults out there that somehow feel Empowered by doing it. So if I report it...get over it...after all it's just a game.  Just my thoughts, like it or not. 

 

 

^^ . Sadly, looks like social standards are going wayward. That guy is an example. Anyways, I know the game is "M" rated, but if its just a game and its just for fun to be silly, whats the point of playing a mideval role playing game? It's not like your going to make it anymore cool by making a stupid name. Its a nerdy genre and playing it makes you a nerd. So stop trying to be cool in a "game" when you're not.

it's not great.  Neither is listening to people talk abotu WoW or the superbowl.  But it's a social experience, to different people that means different things.  Some people play in character, some people just play.    

 

If someone's name or what they say is enough to completely ruin someone's gameplay experience, that person is probabkly too sensitive to partake in an open social environment such as an online MMO.     There is nothing wrong with that, but frankly, people with peanut allergies should avoid the peanut factory grand tour as their choice of entertainment.  

 

Otherwise, /ignore or leave the channel and move on.   If you're not able to do that, no reasonable amount of rules and enforcement will save you from SOMEONE in a world of millions having a stupid name or saying stupid stuff.  The world is full of stupid people who do stupid shit, you can't kill them all.

Players with nasty names are a nice giveaway to never group/guild/dungeon with ... that's how I handle it anyways.

Quite so. Makes it difficult when you get into a guild with mixed 'wits' who think their anti-social names are all the rage.

 

I tend to avoid guilds. Might have trouble this time around because of the Stores/no AH (which I don't want). Trade channel would be nice though.

There will be live mods in game and the ability to report people (ref the Reddit AMA).

 

If I see any name that particularly irritates me I'll report it. That very seldom happens though, I'm fairly tolerant. Usually I just roll my eyes and carry on going.

However, if someone with an obnoxious name is also actively trying to be a jackass in game, I'll report them faster than you can say: "Whut ?"

Whatever...other than the truly offensive racist or sexist names that do get reported and dealt with, I just see them as a helpful badge that lets me know at a glance who to stay away from.

I'd love a game where GMs would actually ban and ip block people with retarded or even non-lore appropriate names or ridiculous OOC chat even  if it was only on one specific RP server . I'd even be willing to pay extra for a server like that.

I just found it off how people had full sentences as names...

 

"The Real Slim Shaddy"

"I know Kung Foo"

"International House of Pancakes"

 

Are a few I ran into in Cyr...

Yeah this can be a problem...

Exactly!!

I'm all for freedoms and am not going to suggest any names be banned, but I certainly prefer immersion and would prefer to play with those who feel the same way.

So, if someone gives me a hint (their name, their guild name, how they talk in global chat, etc.), then I can very freely choose to ignore them and we never need to bump into each other again.

Ironically enough what was sometimes worse was their handle... If you join a guild you are ID'd by your @handle... which is your account name.

What are your other Hobbies?

Don't look now, but you just used a word "retarded" that some people could use to give you a "ban and ip block" by a GM.

 

I know what you mean, but as others have said. Worry more about your own fun and less about what others are doing. You can choose to report or ignore those you think are offensive.

I am also very good at ignoring or turning the cheek but  many people believe in the righteous good,nothing wrong with that,morals in today's world are severely lacking.

You know how many neighbors out there would not even care if they saw someone robbing your house?I have a friend who has tons of money,been retired since he was 35,he is one of those that couldn't care less what happens in the world around him because in his little world he has no issues or problems ,just loads of money.

There didn't seem to be any sort of naming restrictions at all based on my group encounters.  The typical banned words were all there unrestricted.

Wait, I thought subs kept this sort of riff-raff out? I guess this blows that theory out of the water.

Anyway, you get those sorts of names in a pvp game. For some reason hardcore pvp guilds and many pvp players in general love those sorts of names. I don't get it, but I've seen it a lot in pvp games.

Curse you AquaScum!

Ah...how I love irony. On the one hand you're saying there is no difference between F2P and P2P communities and then you go on with your own myth about PVP vs. PVE communities...priceless!

 

I'v seen just as many dumb ass names in PVE and PVP - no difference except in the minds of non PVPers.

I remember in Fallen Earth I had a character called "Korrban Dalles" - a GM contacted me in game saying it was too close to a name from a certain movie and had me change in game.... 

So copyrighted names (within Fallen Earth I don't see how such a name is lore-breaking, I see it as a homage rather) is not ok, but offensive names are.... Oh well. But yes, where goes the borderline?

Krimli is a typical name in fantasy games for me when playing a Dwarf. Is it a Gimli rip-off? Yes. Does it fit the lore of eg LOTRO? Heck yes it does. But XxxFrödöXXX ? Or SuperLugulus? I don't know. 

Anyway, we won't solve it here. Aside from OPs motivation, his question was basically if there is a naming policy or not and if Zenimax has one or not, it's not up to us to decide. Though I have to admit, why not state ones wishes to them just as one does with game-mechanics and such, as paying customers (not as whining beta-players).

No, it doesn't "blow that theory out of the water" at all.

People who are reported and have their names changed by the game moderators will risk being banned if they keep offending repeatedly. In a F2P game that threat is meaningless.

Did anyone notice a naming policy in beta? Or even more importantly, a quick way to report vulgar or perverted names?

i've seen some pretty offensive names in chat, but there was no way to report them from the chat that was easy to do.
