global ignore or right click ignore?

    it seems like dc doesn't have a problem with gold spammers, which is their choice.
    i ignore them, but it's very annoying to have to ignore the same gibberish names on every character i log in.
    any way we could get a global ignore, where we ignore that character on all of our characters? because in what world would i want to ignore someone on one of my characters and not the rest? especially gold spammers that are breaking the tos, and nothing is being done about it at all?
    at least make it so we can just right click their names in the chat box and ignore them from there, instead of having to try 3 or 4 times to figure out whats a number and whats a capitol I or a lowercase L....

    "Social Menu > Recent Text > *Select Spammer Name* > Add To Ignore" is the easiest way to do it with the least headaches - hope that helps.

    But I would love a global ignore for each account too.

    A global ignore would be a huge QoL improvement!

    Oh, that is a no brainer:

    Global Ignore for the win!:D

    This is what I would love to see and be able to do:

    Social Menu > Recent Text > "Select Character Name" > Ignore Character or Ignore Account > Ignore League (if a character is in a league this would show as an option)

    I say group them all together in a league. Kinda like locking all of them up in a room. Then quickly attach a hand grenade to a brick of C-4 explosive, toss it in the room, slam the door and then run like hell!! Then emote dance in the confetti. :p

    would be awesome if daybreak would run a nightly spool report to see who has >50 ignores and investigate. #wishfulthinking

    You know a global ignore would be "reverse engineered" to find/stalk players on said account too right?

    Global ignore would be great. About an hour earlier I checked in various zones / chats and saw 19 spammers active (not counting Nightclubs / police stations). I must assume they have a lot of customers if they are so active.

    Or, just a few players with multiple characters on an account spamming away.

    Hmm...

    I'm not sure about that. I've played (and still play) games that have global ignore and I haven't experienced that type of stalking.

    If you are on a PC I know you can 'box' multiple accounts at once, but to the best of my knowledge you can only run one character per account. People in Everquest boxed all the time, one character per account. So if a player wants to spam for a given website in say Hall of Doom, Metropolis and Gotham, each spammer would have to be on a different account.

    When I've used the Social button to see 'Recent Text', the gold bot names never have a PS4 next to them. So are all the bots on PC's, or do they have some way of masking that?

    Thanks!

    Hmm...

    I remember those true box Everquest days; not only could you only run one character per account, but per machine. So, if you wanted to have your own team on Everquest back in the day, you needed a few computers/laptops to achieve it.

    Yes, the gold spammers are normally on the PC side because you can run a few accounts at once on the same machine. Console players would have to take it back to the old days of running two or more consoles in order to gold spam. I was not aware that on the PC side you could only run one character per account; thank you for that clarification.:D

    From what I've read, 'True boxing' is where you are specifically allowed only one account per PC (like on Everquest progression servers). So if you wanted to legally 'two box' under those conditions, you'd need multiple PC's.
    My friend who played Everquest on a non-progression server often ran two accounts on her PC (I think back then she had two graphics cards, I'm not sure). But that was allowed on that server. However, she could only run one character per account.

    To the best of my knowledge, playing two characters from the same account at once would require a person to log into the same account twice, and I don't know of any game that lets you do that.
