Feb 8th 2012 5:27PM Blizzard should allow it's GMs time in their day to "free roam" servers and take action when needed against players miss-using chat channels, /y cuss words, or being disruptive.
This would be especially helpful to protecting the environment of the RP Servers.
Why should Blizzard have to wait for a player to report a character named "Uradouchebrah" who is in /trade or /localdefense talking about the benefits of Viagra.
A GM quietly floating around sees what we the players see and the behavior. The GM can then stop the player and have a chat with them, hand them a temp ban, and get the name changed.
Letting GMs be proactive would have a greater impact on curbing the behavior that most players find undesirable. This would also make players think twice about being a "jerk",
knowing a GM might be a witness to their actions.
Blizzard did it on Moon Guard and it helped (while it was being done).
I think the GMs do the best they can with the guidelines they have. I appreciate all they do for us.
I think Blizzard needs to change their policies and guidelines to do more to protect WoW from behavior that ruins the game experience of others.
In addition to letting GMs walk/float/fly around the servers, Blizzard should be holding players to a higher standard of behavior.
The game is rated " T " for Teen, but you have to be an adult to have an account (or an adult has to activate an account for a child). Why is immaturity and bad behavior not treated the same as harassment?
Common sense expectations, backed up by action, proactive action, on the part of Blizz, would be the ounce of prevention that might prevent a week's worth of GM tickets, for them to have to deal with.
