    vidyagames give me ptsd

    https://www.reddit.com/r/Eve/comment...nd_eve_online/

    As you all have heard, there was a recent controversy in EVE Online. An alliance by the name of "Just Let it Happen" [FUM8] had their alliance name changed to "EVE Alliance 99005866" because as reported by CCP Falcon, the name violated the EULA and naming policy. An anonymous user who deleted their post (I didn't catch the name in time) stated she reported the name because she "was a sexual assault survivor with PTSD who stood up for herself and other victims of rape culture" and submitted the ticket asking CCP to enforce the EULA. The direct line from the EULA reads as follows: "You may not use any abusive, defamatory, ethnically or racially offensive, harassing, harmful, hateful, obscene, offensive, sexually explicit, threatening or vulgar language."
    submit your corporation/alliance name here pls

    LOOOOL

    meanwhile, there has been a corp called Alcoholocaust for how long?

    CCP are stupid to the max then it comes to social stuff/social implications. Nbs.

    And a good portion of Eve players are sad fatnerds who can live out their :edge: only in their little corner of the internet and just have to choose "cool" names which are only funny if you are 14 or mentally deficient. Nbs.

    God I am glad I stopped playing this game years ago, it really is the epitome of social depravity

    Never had issues with names in the game, Its a game where people roleplay more or less that they fly spaceships and names isn't a big deal.
    Though I love the name on my current corp im in, suits a wh corp greatly!

    The decision to crusade against the name of a single Corp or Alliance in a terrible game of online spaceships seems like an incredibly retarded waste of time. If someone wants to pick up that sword they keep on their parents' basement, maybe they choose something worth actually fighting over.

    I think its more due to no one reporting that. If you complain about something or someone you usually get a response by ccp (unless you are socratic), its just that suprisingly little people that play eve get offended by funny edgy names.

    My favorite always was SIEGlinde HEILbutt as a player name, got removed by ccp though.

    While i do agree some names might be out of line, the alliance in question isnt one of them. I do see why a rape victim would react to it, but so can a fuckload of other things. We cant go around banning every single thing that someone might find offensive.

    They should rename the alliance to "Just Let It Happen (unless it's rape)"

    Reminds me of a case from Guild Wars 2 a couple of years ago. We had a PvP guild called Less Talkin More [Sekz] transfer to our server and they were all kinds of awesome. Then one day their guild was suddenly disbanded by the devs for the same reason, somebody had reported their guild name.

    Another guild from an enemy server claimed credit for the reporting, on the basis that they were "practicing Christians", yada yada yada. They later admitted that they had nothing to do with it and they were just trolling for tears.

    So yeah. PTSD might be a real thing (I dealt with it myself a few years ago), but I can't see that as justification to report a dodgy name in a computer game for any reason other than lulz.

    Since coming back I have heard some realy stupid ban-stories that would never have happened a few years back.
    The eve moderators or whatever they like to call themselves have realy become a bag of sensitive cunts.

    It's sad to see the "I'm more offended than you!" army reaching into eve.

    I wasn't judging the corp (how could I, I don't know them), I was commenting on reactive selective policing.
