No it wouldn't as BW has already proved they don't police chat. People have already proven they can and will act however they want in the game.

I read you post Tux and my point still stands. Show me in the last five years where BW has ever policed chat? Then show me where in the last 5 years they have not allowed people to act like they want in the game and then and only then will I ever believe they will do that with a RP instance.

Obviously you didn't Casi. I never said they did, I said they NEED to.

And what evidence do you have that they would even do this? They have needed to do all this from the beginning so to actually say the need to do it now just because some people want to put RP instances, just because some people want to push everyone on their server no matter if another server is doing well or not.

As I have stated in the past some servers need merged, mainly old pvp ones, but not every server needs that and there are some that have an agenda and want everyone on a particular server just because.

Indeed. Sadly, there are players in MMOs that hate RPers and will go out of their way to try to grief them.

Besides, there is no way to effectively police live chat channels anyway, with so many players online at one time. If there was, then all MMOs would be doing it as social misbehavior it is a constant point of discord with players.

The current method of /report followed by studio review and action is actually the norm for MMOs, and it does deal with the offenders that are indeed crossing the line and needing sanction... just not in real time.

Yes, I agree, ingame chat needs to be policed within certain guidelines. They police it here in the forums and there is no reason not to do it in game.
Will they do it?.. 6 months ago I would have said definitely not.. I don't know now as I'm still shocked everytime Keith or Eric post... so I guess anything is possible
But I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop and for all the communication to dry up over night..
Of course I hope that never happens because this is so much better them engaging with the community like this. Maybe if this was done 3 years ago and never stopped, we would have a totally different game, more population and more people satisfied with their experience.

The same exact way they do in game.... they receive reports, they review, and they take action.

All this bickering.

All this special coding.

They should just do XServer, everyone gets to keep their names, no one has to be on a server they don't like, no lost subs, and the queue pops for everyone.

It is a no brainer.

If they boiled 17 servers down to 3-5 then they would have an easier time policing chat.
