Vip chat, or just chat

Il serait déjà bien d’avoir des modérateurs sur le tchat, ça permettrait d’en calmer quelques un.

Here to support Krat. Not just because he’s a fellow alliance buddy, moreso because he’s echoing some valid concerns.

There’s quite a few amazing personalities from all walks of life and various alliances that have got used to just ignoring VIP altogether. I’m one of those. It’s become a routine to not even take a moment to glance into that chat because the mass majority of the time it’s chalk full of irrelevant nonesense and belittling of others. Or just your typical, “who’s $&! Is bigger.”

It would be certainly nice if the more experienced, friendly gamers, had an option to interact with each other in perhaps a private group chat within the game. Could really go a long ways to building more a community feel.

Anyways I’m just one. Not even sure if this thread will get any traction but I’m with Krat on this one.

VIP chat is like cancer

I have avoided VIP chat for a long time already, and I am not missing anything.

The foul language, bullying, personal attacks (especially from certain players (formerly) from a certain high profile alliance), endless alliance recruitment spam messages are not signs of a healthy VIP chat system.

Fundamental problem: no moderators.

TBH the chat system itself is pretty dire, it is so low tech and pretty easily the least developed/worst feature of the game. The alliance/friends/social implementation is also quite terrible… I’ve given feedback before but I guess it is a super low priority Suggested List of Improvements

At least they have cleaned up the Free Gold spambots, but in my opinion… that is not good enough.

Hello,

We hear you! You can always report behaviour you find offensive to us, and that includes what you see in the chat.

In many cases, you can also Block a player who you’re not getting along with by tapping on their portrait in Chat and selecting the Block feature from the chat interface. There are always ways to avoid other players whose actions you don’t agree with, or players in other Alliances who might not be your biggest fans.

All the best,
Mattie

Problem is blocking doesn’t help in getting a cleaner VIP, even if you don’t respond others do.

Like sing said and I also stated In my op, we need to get carry and recruitment out of VIP, I use it to for recruitment, but in 5 seconds the message is lost because of people just talking or other reasons

Just an ordinary day in VIP

Any mmo/shooter games with pvp modes that has active community ingame ALWAYS have toxic players like these.
Even Forged Fantasy vip chat is like that. That’s the inevitable reality of pvp games.

This had nothing to do with PvP

I don’t think he means PvP specifically, but rather any competitive game in which you’re playing against other people. Which, in his defense, is generally true.

True, my bad, but some stuff is just not okay.

Not talking about jokes, or some healthy trash talk, I can laugh about that to.

I’m already happy all big alliances talk in a normal way, VIP is a lot better that way.

I’ve taken your screenshots and submitted a chat report through the usual channels. Best to do this through support, but thanks for bringing this to my attention. We’re investigating those users.

Thanks @Muninn, really appreciated, I get a lot of messages from starters to help them with small things like PvP teams or how to do certain events/missions, I feel bad sometimes for them when I see such a hostile environment

Report to Player Support, and we’ll investigate and we’ll do what we can!

Important for everyone to note: if you “bait” people into saying terrible things, or otherwise aggravate a situation, you’re just as culpable, so keep that in mind!

i stay away from VIP chat cause a lot of the people that talk there are just toxic idiots.

an alliance recruitment would be nice. My alliance has been looking for several peeps, but the ones ive posted (here and on discord) seem to have been ignored.

I want a split chat for that, recruiting should be out of VIP, I’d like a vip 0 to show what the player can do.

Carry is a next spam that should be removed from VIP.

To reduce the spam, this will help everyone of us.

And everyone means recruiting, carry, want a nice VIP, ask for questions, random fun chat, anything.

We can do this!

I’ve noticed weemick got a permanent chat ban.

If this is because if those screenshots it’s totally out of context.

The way he spoke he deserved a 1 hour mute at most, not because I disagree, just the language used, he was joking.

This really shows that we need a simple function to report someone, if that player gets a lot of reports mute the player for a certain amount of time, if this continues, stack the amount of time.

I don’t like permanent bans, we all have a bad day sometimes.

But the amount of work we need to put in to show the game when someone is crossing a line is to much.

Give us a simple report function when we tap a players name, it will help everyone.

Also, only give permanent chat bans to people who get a lot of reports, not just 1 fallout, sometimes people ask for a toxic response, that’s not the way to respond, I know, but I need to hold myself back a lot of times when people ask for it.

To get the community better, a simple warning would help, and I think 80% of us can help with that

I had a bad VIP moment myself last hour, just to be honest.

Community voted short chat bans, we need it to keep people interested.

We’re losing top players thanks to vip chat

In just about every game I’ve played VIP chat is always full of trolls. These people usually have no life outside of the game. Or they are teenagers and they are trying to feel cool. I rarely spend any time in VIP. Many of my alliance members are not just friends but they are family to me. I’d rather talk with them. All I do in VIP is recruitment. Having a separate channel for recruitment only would be awesome. I love that idea. Short chat ban’s is also a terrific idea. Though people do get offended quite easily, no one should have to deal with a troll .
