    That is a fair concern, however the potential abuse of this system is also a concern. It would have been better if they more directly spelled out what is acceptable and what is not. Their wording is vague and poor and rife for abuse.

    But again, I simply question why its being done..... is there such a huge issue in the game with harrassment (I haven't seen any, but that is one person's perspective) that this was required?


    All I see is this causing more and more people to leave the game due to less and less interaction. Maybe the game becomes more sterile, but also less interesting. I suppose I prefer the occassional jerk in General chat over dead air that makes me want to log out.

    *shrugs*

    I'm in an active guild and we use discord, I've never had this issue except for PuGs.

    I keep saying this over and over again; but so much of the interaction people seem to want is when you bother to join an active guild. or at least meet some people who are in one and ask you to tag along.

    I dont have to interact with anyone to report them.

    NOBODY GETS IT! Your entire behavior on being monitored. So Ignoring a person's hello, refusing to group up with a person on a quest. You will be reported! Did you not read the "social contract"? YOURE AGREEING TO BE SOCIAL! In all aspects of the word. If you refuse, you'll be reported. You're all going to get reported. Its going to be hilarious.

    Works back on your view in reverse. Yes, it is "just a game". I'm merely stating that people given power to silence others can lead to more exhibition of power and historically it often has. There are many games that tried to stop toxicity in games and to this day don't exist. I enjoy the "you people" part of your statement. It shows me quite a bit and the "woke" types certainly pay attention to such idioms.

    it would make you look a hell of a lot more reasonable and worth listening to if you didn't have to lie so bluntly to freak out this much over things you made up.

    This isn't even close to what will happen. This honestly just sounds like some sorta paranoia.

    Have you not been paying attention to tech companies and their use of power? This will be abused to hurt anyone someone deems a Jerk, rather than just blocking or ignoring them people will try and ruin someone elses game experience with this vague "contract". There is zero need for this people can block and ignore and report already, stop being pussies

    Or people should get over themselves and learn how to behave instead of feeling the need to attack others.

    If Blizz had simply called it a "Friendly Gamer Agreement Forum" then there would be no correlation, right? Maybe, but still Blizz choose to call it a "Social Contract". So they know. Now we know.

    If this wasn't what Blizz had in mind then they need to pull it and consider some edits.

This feels like a litmus test which is giving these minorities the feeling of empowerment over the many who simply do not agree with their views.
    Its a video game, my dudes. Fuck all to do with communism (lol someone clearly got this from some other idiot that didn't understand the difference) and entirely to do with just not being a massive wanker to people in the game. Pull your heads out of your arseholes and go touch some grass if this is where being told not to be a prick has taken you.

    These threads continue to show just how rock bottom the "community" of WoW is. How difficult is it to just be... nice? Turns out very difficult when your players are just pieces of shit.

    You kinda give the game away with your last 3 words there. Don't be a jerk to people and you won't have an issue. Pretty simple.

    I do not have an issue in game as i do not currently play, this contract is not making me want to return though. Maybe they will walk it back or clarify what they mean more, as of right now its to vague. I think its hilarious you took that as me being a jerk when I just called people that want more Activision/Blizzard control in their game pussies.
