Hello fellow people, my name is RepsaJ and I am a faceless player in South Netherlands. So here what happend. On 20-09-2014 the player Raaoel decided to go from Legion to Faceless. He was a new player between a frontline of Swarm and Faceless players. And he did not see any legion players in his neigbourhood. Raaoel was talking to both Swarm and Faceless to join, but ultimatily choosen Faceless. I recieved a message from the swarm player NilesTriple that Raaoel was not te be trusted. And NilesTriple mentioned the First and Last name of Raaoel. So the player NilesTriple of Swarm knew the real name of the new Faceless player. Not a big deal? On 22-09-2014 more things happened. Raaoel said on our Groupme Faceless chat, that he recieved a real life letter from someone of Swarm at is real living adress. Raaoel imidiatly think that NilesTriple would have done this. That is because of the following reasons. 1. Raaoel only had contact with 1 player of Swarm, NilesTriple. 2. Raaoel knew that NilesTriple knew his last name due the message NilesTriple send to me. 3. Raaoel's parents saw someone bringing this letter with his moped. Legion is not really arround in the place where Raaoel lives so it could not be a Legion player. 4. There is only 1 Swarm player living in the place where Raaoel lives. So I contacted NilesTriple. And of course people in the Faceless group were already googling him. And we found out also where he lives, real name, etc. We did not decided to do the same trick. Only 1 thing we found out was that this guy was 31... Not really wise of his age cuz he could not knew how old Raaoel was (not Raaoel but I know another Faceless player which is just 11y... imagine what effect that would have on that person). After not so long I got a message back which he asked 'So they found out how Google works in townA'. This TownA was the place where I was born... so quite interesting and it seemed he had googled more people. So what is happening here is that this guy is actually focussing on where players live in let them knew he knew where people live. I am happy cuz I did not live anymore in that town. But still I found it quite disturbing. But we knew where he lived, so LET THE CUBING BEGIN! And the player Nilestriple decided that he would leave this game. And I have no shame that I used cubes to get him out of this game. So why am I posting this? First of all there are children playing this game. And it could be dangerous of other people know where they live. Also youngsters sometimes cannot handle a loss in a game, same thing apply. So I did a feature request:
So this a.m. I get a message from a player from the swarm faction. He is unhappy with recent game play and decides to let me know. He actually sends me two messages back to back. The messages aren't out of the ordinary for game play except he addresses me by my real name. I've been CAREFUL not to share my name in game and group chats. Lets be honest, there are some crazy people out there and most of the people we fight daily live less than 50 miles away. I wouldn't want some nut job taking the game to serious and trying to hurt me or my family in the real world. (stranger things have happened) Then he sends another player from the faceless faction a message that included my name. This faceless member said it was the second message he had received from this guy including my name. Now I ask you this, why would someone feel the need to find out who you are in the real world? And then to share it with others? Is that to intimidate? People this is a game! If you feel the need to find out who someone is maybe you need to take a break. I mean I have made some friends and some frienemies. I've even came across people that make me happy I don't know who they are. If ya know what I mean. lol! But anonymity needs to be respected. I don't know you. I dont need to know your real name. I don't wish you harm. I find some of these gamer tags way more interesting than real names anyway. I have shared a few personal things with people but this disturbs me. Who wants to hear on the news some day that some nut job that got crushed in an op used personal information to track someone down and harm them in the real world? Not me. And crazier things have happened. Once something is out. its out. Now I don't even know if I want to continue playing. Respect is all im saying. Later
