It is the forum member's responsibility to stay up to date on forum rules and to honor the behavior outlined.

Rule 3: Respect the forum purpose and structure

- Do not start a thread about a news story or article unless you make it clear what the story is about, and offer your own opinion to start a discussion.

- Do not share your account information with other individuals. You will be held responsible for any rules violations that occur under your account.
- Do not create new accounts or use other tricks to avoid suspensions or bans.
- Do not create �sock puppet’ accounts – multiple accounts created just so that you can agree with yourself and make it seem like your ideas have more support than they do.

- Do not impersonate moderators. Do not claim to speak for the moderators.

- Moderators have no access to your game account. If you have an issue you must contact customer service.

Generally, BE NICE. There is nothing wrong with being nice to each other.

  • Taking things too personally?

    In all games there are people who just take things over the top. Once people begin taking what happens in a game into real life it basically ruins the game. I bet many of us can recall of a moment in their UE Career where this has happened and quite frankly I am sick and tired of it. If you are that much of a low life to get upset over a video game find a new hobby. Once you begin harassing a person in Real life you should feel ashamed. Sure I can call out specific people, but that is not what I am going for. You know who you are. So cut the crap guys, this is a war game. If you cannot capture this basic concept then do myself and all the other players of UE a favor and stop playing. Seriously, There is no reason for it.

    You should never feel threatened in any video game. The point of a video game is to have fun. Best way to avoid the aggressive players is to just ignore them. Also it's wise to never give out any personal information to other people in the game. I know players have kik and line but all personal info should be kept to yourself (also advise if you chat via those apps, create a dummy account).

    I've had a few guys farm me and it's a virtual spanking but RL threats should never happen. You may always report abusive players to tech support but 3rd party apps such as kik and line, you are on your own.

    The unfortunate truth is there will always be bullies in any online game you play. It's really your choice to engage with the abusive players. Again just do your best to avoid them and ignore PMs. Yeah it's a war game and there will be some trash talk, but keep it classy. Don't write anything that you couldn't screenshot making yourself look bad.

    I know I can fly off the handle myself (you've seen my forum posts where I'm upset) and yeah we all can get somewhat emotional about this game since there is a a lot of time and money put in to some of these builds. But again remember it's just a game and what are you really trying to prove? " my wallet is deeper than yours"?

      Hahaha yes I have to say your wallet is much deeper than mine

      Aside from that I completely agree with you Overlord, not many people have been speaking out against this and making the situation public. It is time people start putting on their big boy pants and acting civil. I get this is a war game, but even then there are limits to what you should and should not do. Lets stick to those guys!!!

        Relax, we all know these bullys are either 12 year old boys acting out in the game because such actions would get them beat up in real life or 35 year old men still living in their mother's basement and talking to other players the way they wish they could talk to their mothers....lol.

        Doesnt take a big man to make a cyber threat, in fact there is a six letter word for those who do such things behind a screen, coward.

        It's a game, have fun, if it upsets you, perhaps its time to try something less stressful, like needlepoint?

            There's a direct correlation between the difficulty in threading a needle and age.

            Not sure that's true with bullies and cowards. I think there's been some interesting work done in the psychology of bullying but all I've heard is anecdotal. I do know that it may not be accurate (or helpful) to write them off as kids or basement-dwellers. Threads like this help though and the more UE at large knows we prefer basic decency the better.

              Yup it's a game! and made to be enjoyed (right?), but I can understand some players getting annoyed or upset. if you're a level 100 like me, fairly new and getting hit by guys lvl 400, what's the point in that? especially when someone spends money in the game.
              no point getting too worked up over it but game is full of internet cowards, that's for sure.

                Taking things outside of the game is just P.A.T.H.E.T.I.C.. Still, dont ever tell anyone your real name etc; friends can quickly become enemies in this game))

                  That sums up Gilligaf empire. All the level 200 members and below in my empire, are being farmed by their level 500-900 members every 15 minutes around the clock. I think they don't even do eve anymore because they are constantly hitting us, lol

                    The best part of this game is all the crying and jealousy

                      Dilligaf sound like they're doing everything right. If you weren't meant to kill people as much as possible, during eve and talk smack the game wouldn't allow it. Yet here we are with a chat ability, pvp during eve and no restriction on how many times you can hit.

                        There always going to be that one guy (or group) that will invest way to much time in any game in general, maybe mental health issues may have a role. Or at least social issues.

                        Pretty much it is worst in PSN/Xbox Live, are good examples of that, like threats of DDoS attacks, and "swatting." I remember during the black ops 2, once they increase the zoomed in time for snipers, most of the sniping community send death threats towards the community manager of treyarch, all because they can't fill up the kill feed.
