Should Racist comments be allowed in the game?

A while ago a player got upset and used Racist comments.  He was reported to Plarium and as far as I can see, nothing was done.   He was kicked from his league and ended up joining KT.  Several of their players are unhappy with what was said and their Marshall said he would need to apologize for his words or he would be kicked from KT.  Roll on 3 weeks and nothing has happened.  Does Dave of KT condone Racist comments?  Should we have a free for all where we use whatever languague we like to one another?  Are there any standards left?

It doesnt have a place in society as a whole let alone the game.

Plarium should take action on issues like that. Certainly in the country I live in it's illegal, serious.

With regards to KT, probably not best to call them out in a forum thread. It's not happened whilst the player was in their league. We don't know and you don't say what info has been presented to KT.

Is there good evidence of what happened? That evidence should go to Plarium and if there was good evidence and they chose to do nothing then it's Plarium you should call out. If only weak evidence then they probably did the best they could with it.

Everyone has a right to an opinion. No one has a right to their opinion being respected by other if it can't be backed up with rational and logic explanation

Racism is hard to deal with, and it will be more hard to deal with in a fictional world. Players can play any characters they so wish in a game so long as it does't upset other players. For you to write it here it must be real, and it might have been hurtful. I advice you to write to the relevant authorities in your country and let them know. they will probably tract the player down and issue a legal order, or warning, to remedy the situation. 

Plarium can't help much in these regards. If it was my country I would have let the race relation know, and write also to the intelligence authority, lay down a court case. For you to have came here it shows how much painful the player might have hurt you and others who witness the ordeal. Try to remedy the situation as best as you can, Dave is a reasonable guy, and he will probably deal with these with the intergrity it so much deserve.

As screen shot was sent to Plarium and to several KT players, including the Marshall Dave.  The offeding player Lupul Siguratic was given a chance to apologize (KT said if he didn't he would be kicked).  Instead he chose to FB sevel of our league he also relocated right nect to me.


As far as calling out KT goes, I call it as it is.  If KT decide to go after me that is their choice.  To me their actions would indicate their stance on Racism.  Plarioum don't seem to be doing anything about it and neither does KT.  Rightly or wrongly, I am making a stand (rather than a Knee).

As Marshal of KT3 I can tell you what KT policy is.  No Racism or profanity in PMs to other leagues.

Everyone starts with a clean slate on joining a KT league.  What they do once in a KT league will determine if they stay or not.

Every KT league has members from all over the world and race bears no part in membership or rank.

Personal opinion: It shouldn't be for anyone to be hounded out of playing for a remark made in anger.  Now if there is a pattern...people have been blackballed before in this game by Marshals of many top leagues.

In any case, no league, KT or otherwise, should "police" the game.  No way are ALL the "facts" ever going to be available anyway.

You seem to be taking these in a very dangerous light note. TO say it was out of ''playing'' and ''in anger'' seem to me you are indeed condoning such vile actions. No matter what, racism was used to violate a human being rights. To say that ''KT policy is to allow racism in any other place, other than in PM'', proves why these player should be taken seriously. To further attest that Everyone starts in a clean slate when they join KT, proves that you are in no way interested in solving these issue, and are in facts condoning it and over that justifying it.  

I lost the last respect I had for you mate.
