So...one of   my last games  I  played....one guy   on MY  team was  being racist....and not joking about it...so  I   told him  to stop it.....he didn't (obviously)....so I  reminded him this is a  community  where  everyone respects everyone....he kept  going  on....then  I said (it was the start of the battle  and he kept going)....I would put  one salvo in him  if  he kept going racist....and he did....and  I did....and I went  pink....just  putting it out there....this is just ridiculous....imho at least....and I think racists should be banned, instead of giving ppl going into  it    a    'pink   walk  of shame'...yes....his  disrespect...I fully back up my 1 salvo...tbh....I did  not  kill the silly  racist guy you know....

what do you guys  think?

I think you should screenshot (or replay) and report him via support.

You shooting at him and being penalized by automated system ... well, you dont have a solid ground for complaining imho.

So you got triggered, and retaliated and got punished in kind.

 

Everything seems to be working fine, there are tools to report tools, use them instead of being high and mighty.

 

You are as intolerant and close minded as the racist dude is.

You could have just reported him for misbehavior in chat as I'm pretty sure some else would have also done so and he would be chat banned automatically. Then open ticket with screenshot, as the others have already said. Problem solved.:cap_hmm:

 

Shooting at him (I admit temptation would be high) will resolve nothing and just make you pink.:cap_old:

how do  you mean?of course I'm intolerant of someone being racist....You're taking the 'freedom of speech' way too far I'm thinking...you must be Murican (no offense). I have living grand parents which lived the ultimate racist stuff, as in the German suppresion....and that's no joke you know....racism in the whole...not done....imho, there's 1 race...the human one :-)

First, too many dots ...

Second, you must be new to the internet. There's douchecanoes everywhere.

Third, report him for misbehaviour in chat.

Fourth, don't shoot at teammates (even if they're being jerks) because the automated TK system doesn't discriminate.

Really? Well, take up the team list (the thingy that show you all our and the nemy's ships and players) - Press TAB to toggle it on and off, right click on his name and choose option "Misbehavior in Chat" from the drop-down menu. :cap_like:

And you shot a green ship, and got punished accordingly.

 

You seem to have anger management issues if you can get triggered by nobody on the internet.

 

Also, words are not actions, dont compare anything said on the internet to anything that happened on real life, I know you love to do it, but its not real.

I know...but he did deserve it...apparently the 'system' does make a difference...way back I did get pink because of shooting a friendly...and then it took about 5 battles or some to get back....now it's good after 1 battle :-)

In team screen, right click the player, report, misbehaviour in chat. You have a limited number of reports, but if someone says something really racist I dump all my available reports for the day on them. Simple. Don't retaliate, don't sink to his level, report and ignore, done.

What do you expect? You're playing a game, where people sail around under the flags of... democratically challenged nations all day long, that is made by a company who apparently has no issues with putting ships involved in the torture of civilians in their game to top it of. Did you seriously expect to enter a realm of enlightenment? Respect is no part of this game and for the most part not of its community neither. Sad, but true and I don't see how having illusions about it is going to help.

As previously stated, this is a matter for WG support, not the forums. Not a *edited* thing we can do about it.

Well, after playing this game for over 2 years...this is honestly the first encounter with blatant racism....just saying...I was shocked...

WG support does not help, was just asking for views of kindred spirits you know...

So all you played in 2 years is coop? Because if you tell us all now that in 2 years this is the first instance of something of that type in chat, let me tell you, you are lying, or were not paying attention.

Have you tried asking? And while I agree such behaviour is detestible, unfortunately for all we know there might be some folks around here that either don't give a *edited* or even approve of it..

That you should not break the rules.

If enough people report people like him, he gets a chat ban and you do not get pink...

Dang it pete, the world is coming to an end, we very seldom agree on anything.

Yeah no you are lying, you can find racism in every second match, people talk about eastern europeans, russians and all the rest in pretty derogatory terms, as said, you were not paying attention.

So, Im the salty one, not the dude posting some "I got triggered and punished, be my friend" post, ok...
