I have only come back to the game after a three month break. Was excited to get back into making friends and what not. Things have been going quite well until yesterday, 6/24…
I met this person randomly who then /kissed my character, I assumed it was friendly so I reacted to a /blush. The first red flag hit when they practically ordered me to /kiss them back. My brain instantly thought to myself, well then… that is awkward but I probably won’t see this person again. So I did, trying to make friends right?
Now, I understand some text can come off completely wrong, so I tossed the red flag to the side in hopes to not offend anyone. My mistake.
They soon start adding me to real ID, which again, after a three year break I’m still trying to remember all of what is going on. Anywhoozies!
They add me, I react by ‘oh shiny button’ and accept. To my demise, I realize my bad. But I can just ignore them later after this awkward moment has passed.
During this, they are trying to convince me that I NEED to RP with them, and not just RP, but to ERP with them. They are telling me that they are superior and I should just agree with them and let them control me. I stop replying after a while, and I do in fact remove this person from my real ID, and then place their character on an ignore.
I log out, because at this point, I am completely unaware of how I’m supposed to feel and feel like that ignore should be enough to stop such conversations from this person happening again.
I would be wrong. They sent me an in game mail, it kept hovering over my mini map and wouldn’t go away because he was on ignore, so I unignored his character to get rid of the mail. Again, a major mistake. It told me how much of a coward I was to place them on an ignore and how I never let them say their peace.
Please note Blizzard : Yes I have full screenshots of this entire interaction, from the very beginning to now.
This mail prompts me to report them, assuming that the report would put them back onto the ignore list. I assumed it worked, because that is how I remember it working. Which I am now made aware that is in fact NOT how it worked.
That was the end of it, I had hoped… but early this morning 6/25 around 8 AM EST, a character tries to invite me to a party, in which they are unable to due to me being in a party with another person at the time…
This person then assumes that I am now in a group, in a random location and erping with someone. Assumes, which is not even the case. At this point, I try and defend myself, which yes. I have screenshots, Blizzard. The conversation continues for about twenty minutes, I’m not only trying to now report this character, but I’m also trying to collect my own thoughts because this conversation…
To put this interaction the best way that I can. Is this person is now demanding that I am not allowed to RP with any other male character, that I am not allowed to do anything that his ‘apology’ NEEDS to be accepted and that if things don’t go his way then he will make sure I’m not happy. When I then announce to this person that he is going to be reported to Blizzard, they absolutely freak out on me. Saying ‘I WILL NOT’ report them and that they do NOT want another suspension.
Blizzard… another… suspension? another … suspension. This person has clearly not learned from their other suspension. I may not even be the only person that this has happened to. If this person is willing to do this within an HOUR of meeting a person. How many other people are now going to have to suffer through what I did?
I just came back from a 3 year break, I’m not even a week in of being back. And this? I JUST paid for the expac, JUST boosted this character that is now being harassed, I don’t even want to be on her anymore. I don’t feel safe, or comfortable because this person changed characters, to get around the ignoring, IN WHICH… I clearly thought I had them ignored, due to the ‘report’ taking all contact away.
I have only shown a select few people these screenshots, because I needed moral support to actually step out and bring this to the public. Since I’ve reported this person twice, they have used two different characters to contact me. Now what do I do? They know my character and I don’t even want to be on this character I just spent 100$ on…
