Now let me be clear this ain’t a complaint thread I’m just interested in the experience of other Colored players who use their skin tone ingame and also explaining mine. So I for one was incredibly excited to finally not be forced to play a white human male, not that I have an issue with it but I prefer to use my own skin color. But there’s always a little bad in the good, after I started using this skin color ingame i started experiencing more toxicity and racism but it also doesn’t help that I play on an incredibly toxic server and when I’m bored I’m in goldshire and anyone with knowledge of moonguard… yeah lol. I know only of 3 Colored players in WoW and they continue using the paler skin tones because the heat it brings. It’s rare to see another black human toon for that reason. There have times where I’m hanging out with friends and lvl 1 toon with part of my name will come up to me shouting BLM!!! Or a racial slur and a bunch of other things that has to do with my race. I’d have debates with other players and they’d derail it by saying something stupid like “ shut up you’re black” or “ I’m your master you listen to me”. I’ve had experienced some pretty nutty racism ingame but I report and move on, the racism’s never really bothered me I’m not one to let a bunch of randoms on the internet get under my skin. So, if any Colored player that uses their skin tone in game how do things go for you?.
P.S I’m typing this on a phone so sorry for the huge wall of text !.
