You can't harass someone on a video game.
They can turn off the game, they can block. Your literally can't harass someone on a videogame.

Also, could you just ignore reports? Because clearly people abuse the function, as you've probably already figured out. Don't do a blizzard where half your players get banned.

On social media, they can leave the site, block someone or turn off their computer. In real life, they can walk away.
I guess it's impossible to harass someone in any circumstances.

Harassment is what happens before rhe actions you describe. The measures you mention prevent further harassment.
Go play archeage or something . . you can litterly make people quit

^All of this is wrong.. Yes you can get harassed on a videogame. My gf gets sexually harassed by kids who think women should play video games quite a bit as her name has Miss in it.. Its not even limited to that.... We've even had people google her go on her instagram then talk in game about how theyre glad her mother and father is dead all because being female and they saw a suicide awareness post.

Man, that's messed up. Now that Smite is crossplay, I see even more female players on consoles. Of course they can't chat so I don't know if that's better or worse.

Err, no, in real life you can't walk away.. What are you talking about?

It would be harassment if someone didn't leave you alone. You can't do that in RL; you can just stalk someone.

On the internet? You just move away from the computer.

It is impossible to harass someone on smite. Impossible.

You sound like one of those idiots who thinks only women get "harassed" on game. No; everyone does.

Also, "sexually harassed" ? There is no sexual contact at all. It is just words.. It is verbal harassment; and even then.. IT IS OPTIONAL.

Also.. Why is she dumb enough to give her real identity out on a game? Like, how stupid do you have to be?

Why not tell them your credit card details, or where you live? Jesus, some people.

Oh, and i'm sure it is just because she is "female on a game". Yes, that is clearly why they went to those lengths.

Sounds to me like you're biased.

Basically, what needs to happen, is these shortsighted people need to cease propagating censorship.. It is infesting EVERYTHING.

You basically want it to be illegal to feel the emotion of hate.. It is just the dumbest thing i've ever seen; and you won;t see how dumb it is until you're the one getting censored because you have the wrong opinion, or said the wrong thing.

Banning people when the game has a mute/block function is just idiotic.. What does it achieve, other than certain players being discriminated against because people don't like their words or opinions.

You obviously dont know what sexual harassment is. Btw shes not devulging her name its a username you do understand that streamers and figures use their same names in games alot right?

Lets keep in mind i took paralegal before touring the state speaking at senatebill meetings.

Harassment doesnt require the person to be in front of them. Not sure who taught you that but theyre wrong. As thats Assault, to harass someone in person while giving them the impression of intent of harm and a ability to do so.

Harassment is very broad and covers many forms one uses to abuse others. IN GAME harassment which exists is also defined behavior the Developers feel toxic/targetting of another.

So regardless of how in your world you define harassment. Smite obviously defines some behavior as harassment.

Harassment can evolve and as its not hard for me to get the physical address and ip of anyone im in a game server with in MOST games then harassment is taken seriously esspecially with what lengths it goes.

I dont expect a person named "ss" to grasp harassment anyways it probably just a matter of time for you.

^^ take this in mind.

You harass someone in game and its recorded.
post on their steam
contact their IG twitter ect to spam hate

thats 3x offenses of harassment and subject for the state to persue a sobpeona of information from HiRez or steam and file a restraining order on you. That restraining order will keep you from possessing a firearm also. Depending on the nature of the harassment and the social media accounts used to harass. The nature of your behavior can be investigated for further legal action which if it was me and you being a person named "SS" id expect a easy push for domestic terrorism and hatecrimes which regardless if it will stick it will haunt you until a verdict is placed if youre not housed in jail until the court hearing due to Obama passing a bill that houses people charged with terrorism indefinetely until their trial'd.

^^^ So bare that in mind and how Hi-rez due to one of their employees getting arrested dont want any more legal lash or bad PR .

Due to the nature of the former employee and reason he was fired i 200000% feel Harassment, threats and ect reporting system is a SMART move on their part and shows they care about the safety of their players.

OMG the tank didn't bought heartward he got sov instead im so angry it doesnt matter we are facing 4 physical gods i wanted my heartward for the mp5 since im a mage, the only one in the team, seriously im gonna report him for absolutely no valid reason at all but first i'll spam "you rock" a thousand times and tell him he's a complete waste of human being, that he deserves the worst and he should unninstall asap, i'll do that with the most disgusting and offensive words i can think of plus gonna encourage everyone else to report him as well.

What?? our jungler is telling me he muted me? how dare he? plus he's going to report me for harassment? what? he already muted me that should be enough, its not fair, im being discriminated, this is outrageous, this game is trash im being punished for aggressively sharing my disgusting thoughts, where's my freedom of speech? this how freedom end guys, right here..
