EverQuest II’s latest forum and Reddit drama

    
51

EverQuest II players concerned about alleged excessive forum moderation after a suspension of one of the community’s more prominent supporters and the studio focus on using Reddit as a communications platform were treated to an “open dialogue” yesterday by CM Radar X.

“Forum suspensions are never done on a whim and usually come with a fair bit of warning,” Radar X explained. “Any time one is issued, it is after a string of communication and in hopes that we open up a dialogue with the individual and reach an understanding of what our guidelines will allow.”

As for Reddit, Radar X said that the dev and CM team agreed to throw their support behind using it to talk with players: “We look to sites like Reddit as a middle ground for constructive, unbiased conversations about our games. We do understand that Reddit may be a significant change and we’re hopeful that you’ll at least stop by and take a look at it, if you haven’t already.”

You know what would be a real measure of good faith in working with the gamer community? If, during this patch, https://forums.station.sony.com/eq/index.php?threads/daybreak-general-maintenance-monday-april-27-2015.219837/, you unbanned EVERYONE from all of your game forums and social media accounts.

I’m encouraging EQ1 players to take their chat to the forums at EQResource.  Fuck SoE’s moderators.

BalsBigBrother Did you see in the rules where “Asian plat farmer” is “racist?” Me neither.  Banned from EQ1 forums for life.

MrFester I got perma-banned for pointing out that their lag graph showed peak load during Asian play hours.  They kept arguing that “Asian plat farmer” was ‘racist!”  They don’t want to hear that Asia isn’t a race.

BriarGrey Brasse told me that Reddit is more moderated than the Everquest forums are.  Does that give you a clue why they chose Reddit?

Jeeshman Serrenity Thousands of players remain banned from DBG’s Facebook pages and forums for criticizing forum moderation.  This must be some new definition of ‘customer service.’  Perhaps, they got their training handbook from North Korea.
