Well any kinds of rules are just a muzzle to keep players from speaking their opinion/mind.
Please change the guidelines so that forum users don’t get banned for ingame discussions. All discussions that include things the staff considers e.g. Hate-speech outside of the off-topic partion of the forum (i.e. the things unrelated to the game)
have a relation to the game and should never result in a ban.
If players e.g. discuss religion or paraphilia inside the General Discussion section of the forum, it’s always according to what TOS showcases us in its world.
There is a lot of evil things and wrongdoings going on there, and we have a right to discuss things that are not explicitly mentioned/reason whether it’s right or wrong to breech religious taboos,etc.
By no ways we are talking about real-life things that have no connection to the world of TOS, we just use parallels and philosophic knowledge based on our own/& Lithuanian religion/culture/moral law.
If we are not allowed to draw these parallels just because some people mind them/regard them offensive for their real life persona, they are at the wrong place for that. We are discussing TOS and no narrow mindset that can’t see we’re talking about the game has the right to stop us from thinking. People who can’t tell apart a game and it’s contents from reality should consult a psychologist and recieve treatment asap.
By banning people for simple ingame discussions, you’re actively discriminating against our mindsets, resulting in a breach of your own guidelines as you’re harassing people for what they’re thinking about the game.
Also, why objectification?
This includes excessive cursing (whether or not censored), inappropriate sexual references, and objectification of any kind.
The whole game is an objectification of human life, and humans are object of objectification throughout the storyline [ the saviour-theme, the Kruvina(or however the tool is named that absorbs humans life force into a gem), the Fate that Laima dictates onto every human by birth,etc.]. The avatars we use in the game are an objectification per se as we abuse them to have our fill of fun.
Even more are the NPCs objectification of human life. They are showcased as shallow in the city and slaughtered mercilessly on the fields just to create a story.
They are exclusively showcased as inferior to the players and even the goddesses are just some “damsels in distress”…
If objectification of any kind is forbidden, we might just stop discussing the game as a whole.
