    bad gm attitude

    so a few short minutes ago i was happily raiding doing attempts on heroic Ji Kun when a gm contacted me that i had a inappropriate name on the account i asked him which character it was and in respone all i got was 'a e-mail was sent your your registed e-mail address this account is being banned and a name change is required'

    so i answer him asking if i could have 30mins untill he kicked me since we were still in the middle of a raid, all i got bak was a paragraph of repose which i couldnt read in time because i was kicked straight away.

    does anyone find this unfair mid raid i get kicked and banned?

    You're not going to get banned, he wanted you out for whatever reason

    edit
    my bad, misunderstood your post. Though you meant guild master not Game master.

    not really. you should have figured it was gonna happen sooner or later if you chose a name that was against the rules. masked or otherwise cleverly spelled. you tap dance that line and things can happen.

    Your own fault for having a name that violated the rules.

    So you violate a rule, and because you were told to change it and disconnected from the game to change it, you think that's unfair?

    The only thing that is unfair is you wasting a GMs time by having a stupid name in the first place, and then ours for even thinking you were unfairly treated.

    What was the name? I want to know the severity of it.

    Looking for new friends. I asked my old friends for ideas on how to serve my landlord since we have tech beef and they weren't helpful at all. PM me. (I'm very serious.)

    GMs are on job. You think they'd wait for 30 minutes more just to wait with temp. ban? Well, you could see that coming as you don't argue about your name being inappropriate. You should have been ready for consequences.

    Dick move by the GM, a bad name isnt going to kill anyone. Was going to say inb4 white knights but no one is faster than them.


    Frostitute was the name? I dont really think that warrents an immediate name change + kick, considering you would have to first know what a prostitute is. Plus it could have easily been the ending of Substitute for example.

    People being offended at silly names like this, offends me. Do I deserve to get them banned? Not really.

    a robber wouldn't be given time to hang out with his friends if he just got caught stealing from the 7-11.

    GM's are busy people, it's not his job to be kind to people who break the rules, it's his job to enforce the rules and to provide help to players experiencing issues with the game.

    So a bad name (i.e. F[P]rostitute) can't bring up bad memories or emotions which can easily offend or, yes, even remind someone about a bad past and lead them to doing something stupid? I personally don't care, but I know the world doesn't revolve around me.

    or simply people who are realistic and are unsympathetic to those who break the rules.

    but yes, keep calling us names, that will make your side seem more reasonable.

    This. If a GM had to sit around and wait to hand out punishments when it's convenient for the player, each GM would be covered in about 100 sticky notes. Just trying to manage every player's schedule is ridiculous.
