# 1 Trolls on Drozana
08-07-2012, 09:53 AM
Why is it that Cryptic and PW allow this harassment and trolling to continue by certain trolling fleets on Drozana Station and other social zones?
I along with many other gold members have paid a lot of money through subscriptions and the c-store to support this game though the years. Yet the Devs are continuing to allowing trolls to make enjoying the game impossible.
I along with many others will not invest any more money in this game until the GM's that are suppose to Police this type of behavior actually do their jobs and end all this harassment of players.

Drozana is a very special place. This kind of place exists in every MMO. You can't do much against "trolls", since being slightly annoying isn't against the rules. As long as they don't insult you it's ok I guess.

How about instance limiting

1 an instance only for Lifetime members and Gold members Everything fully enabled

2 An instance only for Free players NOTHING enabled (no social items no weapons)

3 a Secure area for Roleplayers with a Live full time moderator

4 an "Adult " instance strictly over 21s as above

5 a "dentist" instance (all spam systems active and only place you can go if you have a chat ban)

6 mission instance (all chats and special effects disabled)

Assuming of course that "trolls" only play for free and that free players don't deserve the same social experience as Golds.

First of all, how do you expect PWE to police that? Do we all need to submit to a retinal scan before playing the game? How exactly do you keep non-Roleplayers out?

Second of all, how many in-game moderators do you think PWE would need to hire to supervise all of these "instances" throughout the game? Because the game engine guarantees that you would need a special instance for each zone or area.

Should they do this for a "Free to Play" game? Probably not going to happen.

I'm getting downright curious about these Dentist guys.

By definition, if they're banned from chat they can't bother anybody with chat. They can "get in your face", true. You could take a screenshot and put in a ticket, I guess. But you could also try to zone into a new instance, couldn't you?

I'm just not sure it's reasonable to expect Cryptic to spin up a new separate zone instance just because a handful of players have chat disabled. If a player is behaving badly enough, PWE can revoke their account... and then they can get a new email address and start another one.

Which sucks for sure, but the alternative is punishing all of the Silver accounts for the misdeeds of a few and I don't think that's fair or good for the game as a whole.

The only thing to do is politely ask people to stop the behavior that's annoying you, quietly file a ticket if the behavior is extreme, and then ignore them the best you can.

I understand that filing tickets is probably not going to be productive in a lot of cases. But that's what we've got.

As far as mission instances go, I could see disabling certain items like party poppers. But chat? Not everybody uses voicechat. Also, some RP'ers use Foundry missions and maybe they might want party poppers. Probably not, but there's no accounting for taste and a sense of "what the heck".

That way you can tip the orions, amiright?

So you don't have to worry about someone else catching the girls eyes that don't have money?

I don't think anyone wants to actually read bad fanfic material for a living.

Especially if there's going to be a "champagne room".

Since that will sooo stop people from ruining your sexy time. Cause you can't get any outside of the game.

A members area, where the needs of your member are seen to? Drozana's already like horrific cross between Stringfellow's and Mos Eisley.

Without naming names (against forum rules), what "trollish" behavior are you referring to, exactly?

Even if the Devs wanted to do something about it, they'd need to know what was going on first.

Annoying behavior is kind of subjective. What annoys you might not annoy me, etc.

What matters is whether it's true harassment and whether that particular form of harassment is something they can/will do something about.

Well I guess it's about the party popers.

OP:
K7 is a good station too, you have the same services and it's very close to drozana. You may migrate if there are people you don't want to see. It would take you less time than complaining on the forums.

Quarks also works too. At least there both KDF and Feds can go there unlike K-7 or Ganalda (nobody is ever in Ganalda). That and it is surrounded by everything you need such as an exchange and a costume vendor.
