critical threads are just deleted on their forums( at least some of them)

customers are just banned from the same forums,,without giving any reasons

EAware is doing damage control, so they can get the lasat handful of $$, before totally

abandoning this disaster

sadly,,BOTH the big scifi IPs are F2P zombies now,,SW even in its second attempt

looks like MMOs just doesnt work without elves and dragons

Man, not to step on your toes, but that really is nothing.

I got warnings for far less before launch and back then I was still mostly supportive of the direction they were taking with the game.

A warning is just a warning, must've racked up about 6-7 of them in my time there. Some users had a truckload before they finally got suspended.

Feel free to use my referral link for SW:TOR if you want to test out the game. You'll get some special unlocks!

 No that is not correct you get warning or a bann for one post you make you dont build up and gather points for getting banned.

i think i got like 20 warnings and never once banned at least before my sub just ran out.  I got a lot nastier than your post for sure as well.  SWTOR community team is pretty bad about picking who is trolling and who is not in their community. I noticed a lot of people could totally bash the game but say it without cussing or trolling and not get touched for bans but the second someone slams them with an opposite position they would get it deleted. Im pretty sure the community team isnt even reading the threads they are just using word software or people who report posts. At least here they actually go back and read the threads and see if someone is jsut being a jerk off or if they were baited.

I wouldn't say bleeding players, but it's definitely losing them. I'm cancelling my sub because bioware has ignored 240+ tickets about players harrassing, bullying, insulting players off my server while they cuss and talk like sailors in general chat. I guess the bullies will win, but I really don't feel like paying bioware anymore money while they continue to allow such inappropriate and childish behaviour to continue in this game. Shame on you bioware for having zero integrity to enforce your rules. Worst customer service ever.

 

This was my response to the post above.

You are cancelling a game you like because of bullies??? WOW Are you gonna quit real life because of bullies also. People should be made aware of a function in the game called IGNORE that can be used to silence the bullies and never have to be bothered again.

All the best,
STAR WARS: The Old Republic

 

Seriously Bioware get your priorities straight.

ah nwm, sry

Warnings on their forums can come with "infractions",  they don't if it's a first warning or a minor "offence".

As you stack up infraction points you can get banned and after that, permabanned.

Read their rules :)

Wish I had something positive to say =(

It's just like this forum. It only takes some seasoned poster to click report just because it feels right to them versus them just taking it for face value.

 

You will always have weak minded people who think they are better than whatever it was you posted.

Way to fail at reading comprehension. The guy you responded too said he didn't feel like <PAY ATTENTION TO THIS PART> paying money to a company that isn't enforcing it's own rules. He didn't say <WATCH CLOSELY NOW> he opened 240+ tickets now did he? So this isn't just his problem, it's systemic to the company. Also, how do you play a game if you are spending your time /ignoring people contantly?

My personal opinion? I think you are just trying pump up your self-esteem by blasting someone you think is weak and thus make yourself feel special.

 

Now you want to see some over-zealous modding? Wait till my post gets read/reported and I get bashed to posting my opinion. Note I didn't call you a name, or even accuse you of anything, I simply said what I thought was the motivation for what you said. Didn't even use "nasty" words etc. It's cool though, I rarely post so I likely won't feel the need to post again till the banishment is over.

this is far from true in practice , though its true in their forum rules. I have had at least 20 or more warnings in the last six months and never once been banned and ive cussed people out over there.
