Uh I don't know how to say or start this topic but please stop saying get cancer or saying cancer reffering to artilleries. One of my close relative is cancer patient more than six years. When someone reffering to get cancer in game it realy hurts me. One time she said to me she don't want any more treatment because she suffered enough. I'm writing this because i want you to understand and feel too. The cancer not only hurts the patient, it shattered families. So i would like to ask you do you realy want to hurt a person or  a family that much? Please take responsibility and stop saying this [edited] word, there must be a cancer patient playing this game and the word of cancer can hurt her or him much more than ever we felt or imagine. I don't need to be comforted or any one is. There is a lot of cancer patients, every one knows how bad is cancer but our society still don't understand or give any [edited]. Whic is Words have a Power much more than most of you thought so before you say any dumb thing, think it twice.

It's just a word. Perhaps chose to ignore it like I do and don't 'bite'. That's what the trolls want.
Sticks and stones will break my bones but words cannot harm me.

There are like 20.000 threads like yours in the forum. In all languages. I don't want to say your point isn't relevant, but it doesn't help to open another thread for it. It's an online game everyone is allowed to play, there will always be ppl insulting each other, and some of them will overshoot the target.

 

In cases of really excessive insults, make a screenshot and send it to the customer support.

Of course it's a word but cancer is a disease which is morale is really important. Most of times patients and families lose hope and after that they lose their lives and lovers. In Fact in this game people obviously using word cancer extremely much more than any other platforms at this point you don't bite it, it bites you... I believe somehow ridiculous fact must be stop. And the reporting abusers not the solution. WG should take responsibility, this problem growing in their platform atleast they can manifest it in their website. That's the big problem and everyone closing their eyes, one thread cannot be seen by most of players by itself.

Imo the word cancer should just get an automatic [edited] as replacement.

Come back when you have first hand experience of it.

I personally don't like it, I've had personal experiences with it; whilst most people don't mean anything personal by it, sometimes it's not so easy to just let it go as it can get to you, so OP is kinda right.

Personally I think it's a lazy insult and anyone using it should be pointed in the direction of the Viz Profanisaurus for lessons in proper swearing.

Life isn't fair that's true, reality is most of those players have never had any experience at all of it and probably never will.   Karma does not exist or My mum would not have died of cancer, she spent her whole life caring for others, as a nurse and matron and home visitor caring for newborns with disabilities until she had to stop due to cancer.   when I see the" get cancer" it bugged me a lot for a few years.  but I admit I had to toughen up.  they in most cases are just stupid idiots.  Just like those that say "your mum" comments, just as ignorant.   its also now after many years I can say things like, "you play worse than my dead grandmother, if she spun in her grave on a keyboard"      its still too soon for me to say that about my mother, but not my grandmother...

Yes, totally agree. You can right-click on their name during the battle (hit control to have the mouse cursor) and "add to blacklist".. done! You'll never hear from them anymore.

 

If in the chat religion/politics/races stuff is banned, then should also other personal topics be banned to.

 

See you on the battlefiled! :honoring:

Well, you don't get banned for ''oxymoron'', and ''get cancer'' is certainly not allowed.

I can assure you that when we come across this word, we do take action. Often it is to just edit the word and send a friendly reminder to the guilty party, and if that fails to work, forum sanctions will be applied.

 

I will also mention that using *s or other symbols to try and get around the swearing and profanity rules will also be dealt with in this way.
