#1 - 2013/08/13 06:52:00 PMI understand the reason behind the code of conduct Blizzard has implemented any why they block users being called out due to PKers scamming and general bad behavior. I understand that locking threads that don’t conform to the said code of conduct is the best way to stop a match from becoming a forest fire. Without policies like this I am sure we would see endless threads with copious amounts of defamation slurs and slander.
With everything that’s evolved with the general intranet cafés blogs face book chats… people loose perspectives and loose site that there are humans on the other end of the conversations tweets chats and not bits and bytes.
During my time playing Diablo 3 you grown a connection with your characters and I have been on the losing end of Pkers/scammers. I understand the passion people have shown within the HC community this is a good thing Blizzard. Without passion you merely have a game to support with no community or emotion to deal with. It’s my belief that Blizzard has eclipsed this tbh.
It is human nature to do a couple of things; warn other people of the dangers of fire and to determine what can be done about the root cause of the fire. It is my belief the Blizzard needs to communicate this better than what they are currently doing, which is throwing out the policy statement and locking the thread. This may be the correct action to take and might be the “quick fix” but often this type of email response often alienates the poster and respondents and minimizes their fears.
I am sure this is not the intent of Blizzard,, BUT...Blizzard… What are you doing to prevent forest fires and update your community?
