Final Fantasy 14 director Naoki Yoshida has implemented a list of new rules to combat what he calls “uncooperative behavior.”
Following the release of Final Fantasy 14’s new 5v5 player versus player (PvP) mode, Crystal Conflict, Yoshida reported “an unprecedented number of reports of uncooperative / away behavior or ridicule during games.”
In a new blog post, he explained how “all PvP content, including Crystal Conflict, is intended to be a battle / skill contest between players. Participants must do their best in the fight, and for this reason is prohibited On uncooperative or lethargic behavior. Let us do our best even in the event of victory, whether you are interested in rewards or not. ”
He then pointed out that a number of actions in Final Fantasy 14 are prohibited, including the repeated use of the phrase “good job” when another player is not doing well. Players were also told to stop “sending fireworks on top of their downed opponent”, as well as things like insulting people on social media.
Violations can result in a temporary suspension of between 3 and 20 days, and a permanent ban on “extremely serious” cases.
“There may be cases where actions taken during the battle are described as mocking or lethargic behavior, but this is why the process of reviewing the records is careful: to prevent false allegations,” he continued. . “All cases must be thoroughly investigated, which takes time. For this reason, we ask that a calm and clear assessment be made before filing a complaint as to whether the observed behavior actually falls within the prohibited conduct.”
On the other hand, on the night of Monday, April 25, the 2022 edition of the Gayming Awards was held, in which Life Is Strange: True Colors won three trophies.
Elsewhere, Unpacking was awarded the title of best LGBTQ indie game and Minecraft streamer Aimsey was named LGBTQ stream of the year.
