BUG: game will no longer allow me to virtually molest people
So here I was enjoying an online game of shooting goblins with arrows, when all of a sudden I noticed that another player was actually a subhuman female scumbag. I was in shock & awe that they had the audacity to play with me, so I quickly asserted my cishetero white middle class male dominance by vigorously molesting &♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥her as much as possible before she left the game in tears.

I just found out that I can no longer molest other subhuman scum though, and this is a travesty that must be redressed quickly by the white knight beta cuck orbiter developers or else I will ruin them.

Unfortunately I had to change my profile name to something else since the incident happened because the wench dared to tell other people what happened and she even used my name, so if you're wondering why my name isn't BigBro442 anymore then that's why.

I realize that you're just trying to troll/provoke, but this really isn't the way. There are probably some people taking things like this at face value to justify their actions.

Good, let them embarrass themselves further while I continue to mock them for being idiots.

You say that, but unfortunately the public eye, it seems, is not on the side of the rationals. Just look at this example. Some dude (if he even exists, I won't make any assesment about that) decided to troll someone, they got triggered instead of acting rationally and just leaving, mainstream media jumped on it and now the devs were essentially pressured into fixing something that isn't broken (because, really, after this "scandal" they probably assumed that their decision will make or break the game) and those wanting to control everything now have a foothold in the VR market.

Honestly, I don't really care about the safety bubble, it's just a tiny feature and an optional thing. The actual issue is that this a) creates a precedent allowing any existing or future VR title to be targeted for 'corrective measure' and b) marked the Devs as 'someone who will bend when pressured'. I really, really hope that after this incident has blown over the devs and the game will be left in peace, but that is generally not the regressive's modus operandi...

And it all started with a random troll.

If mainstream media also want to embarrass themselves then cool, I'll be mocking them as well.

I really don't care about the bubble itself either honestly because it's the devs' game and they can do what they want, I just find it dumb that the devs acquiesce to whining from triggered regressives so I thought I'd make a thread mocking them about it.

I'm going to lock this thread as well since I don't think it brings much to the table.

However I will say that Block/Mute features have been in games for many years, and this type of ignore/fade system serves a very similar purpose. We don't see this as acquiescing to unfair criticism, but instead implementing a feature similar to one that any big budget multiplayer game always includes.

With VR, there is another dimension that is added to your play experience, and I put too much work into creating a cool environment and engaging game mechanics to allow some jerk to detract from the experience we're trying to bring to players.

This isn't Grand Theft Auto, it's not a 'Rated M' game. This game is supposed to be fun for everyone. And since I don't have a team to handle false-positive reports I can't ban people. We feel that this is the best solution.

If you'd like to suggest a better way to handle the issue at hand, feel free to create a new thread with constructive criticism of the proposed system and what might work better.
