    The same rules apply to WoW, the thing is they don't actually enforce it at all (except when the name is reported).

    I don't particularly find names of that sort funny or even witty. I don't understand why people take an issue with them not being allowed. They're just stupid names that make no sense in the game environment.

    I think Anet needs to take a step down and only punish obviously bad names, like Kkkftw or something stupid like that. But even still, they should not be giving out more than a warning and a compulsory name change, perma banning on day 1 is not a good sign.

    Not only that but if you lack the skills to interact with others in public, which is more or less what any MMO is I would be stunned if anything was learned from a thread like this. If you haven't sorted it out in however many years you have been on the planet (I am guessing about 12) it is very unlikely any progress will be made on a thread in MMOchamp LMAO
    tbf u should be the one who should learn..
    love how on these mmo champ forums, people tend to flame.. offend.. troll and go offtopic all the time.. why not just stick to the subject of the thread and not talking about other sht? how about that? maybe? no? ... this thread is doomed again.. cuz if one starts.. others just have to jump in (like me) ..

    But to the topic.. i personally have the same oppinion as most, that geting a perm ban is just redic. A warning.. and some followup action would be better, but not perm bans, or even temp bans.

    It's not a permanent ban. The first offense is 72 hours.

    It's not that the rules of GW2 are more strict then the ones in WoW, they just enforce them.

    Though I do agree that I do not understand why historical figures or real life names of someone are not allowed, it's their call here.

    There may be exaggerated cases, but I agree with most of the bans mentioned in this thread. Happy Anet takes a strict stance.

    And for horse's sake, most of you, stop saying permaban when it's a temp ban, which as posted earlier, is stated in Anet's policy to be your warning. If you learn from that, good for you; if you don't, the permaban or ragequit is better for the rest of the community.


    Props to OP for taking it like a man and not whining.

    If he's 'taking it like a man and not whining', then why did he make *two* threads about it?

    Seems like whining and/or wanting validation to me.

    If he was really doing what you said, the threads wouldn't exist.

    If this has already been say, my bad, but I think OP was banned for the context he used it in rather than the swearing itself. I saw plenty of people have conversations in /map chat that were swearing. Swearing in /map chat is entirely inappropriate though, and I wouldn't mind if it is ban-able. It is the equivalent of swearing loudly in a crowded public area. It's indecent and reflects poorly on the community.

    For those who think swearing words are for "big boys" or "mature" people, it is quite the opposite. There is a time and place for everything, and /map chat is not the place. Show some maturity by showing constraint.

    Closing this down as it's not really productive and causing issues.
