Blizzard mod owns player after he claims he did nothing wrong

Let’s play guess the expletive

While I think people overuse the word “toxic” (being competitive is not inherently “toxic”), it’s pretty clear in some cases.

Like this one, which a Blizzard mod hilariously brought to light after a player claimed he was silenced (read: can’t chat) in Heroes of the Storm after “not breaking any rules.” After several days a mod fired back, showing exactly why they had punishment brought down upon them, before calmly going back to submitted a canned customer support response, and closing the thread to prevent a retort.

I got a good laugh out of “(religious figure),” and the fact that the player openly admitted to using insults.

I was silenced for reporting [] Thanks Trevor!

For confimration [sic], you were not silenced for reporting others. You were silenced for using chat like this: 

2016-06-07 19:25:03LILI WHAT THE (double expletives) ARE YOU DOING (expletive noun)
2016-06-11 10:46:50 kill tracer noobs (religious figure) (obscene word) 

2016-06-14 00:35:25 AWSOME the (offensive words) THAT CANT REPLY TO MY INSULTS TOOK MY PICK
2016-06-14 lol I will (politier word would’ve been ‘mess with’) with him the whole game now

If anyone finds themselves in a situation where they believe they incorrectly were silenced, you are welcome to submit an appeal through our Support Siteand our Game Masters will review the logs attached to your case. Thank you!
