Having played this game for a few years,I'm horrified to see clan names with ISIS in the game,if this is not dealt with very soon I will no longer play or spend money on a game that allows this,I expect the mods to deal with this...with what is happening in the world today and the fact that youngsters play this game I find it totally unacceptable and to promote this is beyond belief...

We reported this months ago when clans came out.

I thought it was taken care of.

Are they still operational?

Mods please see to it.

Hi,

 

I suggest you to send a ticket with a proper screenshot on that clan name. WG will decides whether it is an offensive name or not. ISIS might stand for other name, but well, let WG do their job on this. Thanks for telling us about this.

Not necessarily a clanname of ''ISIS''. But there is a clantag with ''ISIS''. I know from PHP code that it is not hard to block certain words, letters etc. So I do not think it is hard for WG developpers and programmers to stop all sort of terrorist groups name. I do not know why WG hasn't done this already.

There's a lot of clan names and player names which are inappropriate. However there is quite a lengthy period of time to remove them... Sadly some clans still exist with these types of names which are really disrespectful and explicit but use some different characters or have a name which is an acronym to bypass the filtering system. We just have to hope there is soon a more advanced and faster way to take care of this problem.

Still waiting for ISIS clan tag to be removed... Just made by a bunch of kids who don't understand the significance and meeting of their tag, it just reflects bad on them...

I've actually got a ticket in the queue about an offensive clan tag. It's been sitting there for almost a month now with no response to it though. Which is disappointing because I have had other instances where support tickets have been dealt with in less hours than this one has spent in weeks waiting for a response.

So disssapointing with this kind of clan tags,especially after the Paris tragedy.

As of today, ISIS clan is still alive and well on WG servers. Ran into a few of them over the weekend, and another one today. The dude today became very abusive after I said "I thought your clan was banned" in-game.

Yeah, I reported ISIS clan again this weekend to WG. Saigon and I met them on Sunday. Disappointing - i'm thinking WG penalties need to be much tougher....

Shouldn't block them though buddy, although I share your sentiment.

After all, it's another gun on your team, and as such will help you win, whether it's driven by an idiot or not.

If u block them you're ruining the chances for the other five players in your team.

 

Now, if you could just ever so gently push them in front of the enemy, so as to create a new steel wall out of their carcass, and you create something for the rest of the greens to get cover from, then maybe... ;)

You mean like what I do with the fools who think it's right to have NSDAP as their clan name? I usually just hang them out to dry. They aren't good enough to win on their own, and it's funny watching them die.

They were reported and banned actually. There's a whole thread on this forum (Asia) where some "poor" chap who claims to be "just stupid and careless, basically" is whining, complaining and begging WG to let him into his account, because this game is his life, and he was "just careless, and copy/pasted some random german words". You should find the thread. It's a fun read.

Reported these 2 clans in the screenshots a week ago. 

WG should not just ban the clan names, the clan members should be suspended.

Do you know WG gave him back his account?

Don't know why WG are not instant-banning these clans. Wonder there are similar names in other forums too.
