Making the arcade able to be played by anyone for free was a huge step forward. I have been a part of the blizzard community since Diablo 1 was created. Sense then advancements like this have been huge steps forward in creating an enjoyable gaming experience for players all around the world that millions of players have taken advantage of. Unfortunately with this step forward a door has been opened for players to abuse this system and harass other players and communities on an unprecedented level.

I understand that is impractical for blizzard employees to micro manage players and altogether prevent harassment from happening. It would just be silly to expect that. I am creating this topic because of one specific player that has ruined hundreds of players experience and continues to do so every day.

I am a moderator for the Mafia community. This SC mod has a very strong player base and associated community of players. It self manages by means of implementing punishments on players that work to ruin other players experiences by means of a 'Watch List', 'Kick Vote List' and 'Ban list'. (Ban listed players still have access to the map and all its features through the test map and are only restricted in their ability to play with non ban listed players.) The reports are filed on the forum by other players and processed by Mafia Mods. After a punishment has been decided a Mafia Admin implements the punishment and the punishment can be appealed by the punished player for further review.

With the new free to play arcade system this has been circumvented. Toxic players that work to destroy the experience create new user ID's and continue to harass players. In most cases this is manageable but this is a specific instance of when it is not.

These are the players known SC ID's that he has used in the last 10 days to destroy games:
1-S2-1-5426313

(There would be 2 or 3 times as many replays on the original account but our database cuts off after a certain time period.)

For every report we receive there is tons of games that go un-reported. As of last night this player was in a party of 3 joining a game to ruin it and then leaving to repeat the process. I have no doubt in my mind that you have tons of player reports on your end on the accounts.

This is a link to your harassment policy:
https://us.battle.net/support/en/article/harassment-policy
Within the replays you will find that every single definition of your harassment policy has been violated with the exception of Advertising.
*This includes real life threats and references to acts of violence not associated with the game*

No player should be subjected to the level of discrimination that this user inflicts on the community on a daily basis and players should never have to fear for their safety. I hope that the only reason this has not been addressed is that it has somehow slipped the attention of the blizzard staff and would ask that action is taken to protect the community from this behavior.

I am cross posting this from general discussion to draw staff attention.
+1 [removed] harasses , annoys and destroys games on purpose. He joins the game , which this guy speaks of here, (the arcade game mafia) gets other trolls to join him, and then when in the game, if he is the MAFIA role card, he will reveal who else is mafia. which isn't how your suppose to play, and he knows that. He purposefully destroys games. Why does blizzard allow this to go on? You know how many fellow gamers/mafia players hate this guy, "[removed]" ? LET ME GIVE YOU A HINT Everytime a game starts, MOST which means about 65 to 75 % of players will leave OUT OF 15 PLAYERS!!
(for more accurate results contact admin/mods at sc2mafia.com ) oh also he creates multiple starter accounts once banned from the arcade game mafia, then does it again.

Now you tell me why blizzard allows [removed] to SPAM racsim which includes but is not limited to the following, spamming swasticas, the killing of [removed], and then stuff about [removed].

Other evidence: He has or had clans like clan [removed], which in the clan description it says : we throw [removed]. Need I say more? an actual clan dedicated to ruining a game? pretty obvious there. and then a clan called [removed], and [removed].

I DON'T THINK YOUR FELLOW GAMERS APPRECIATE YOUR BEHAVIOR , BLIZZARD. THIS BEHAVIOR IS VERY SERIOUS AND NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED, I CAN'T CREATE A TICKET OR I WOULD, BUT yeah REPORT A PLAYER DOESN'T WORK. WE NEED TO GET THIS [Removed] DUDE OUT OF STARCRAFT 2.
Please take care not to name and shame in the forums - doing so may be construed as a form of harassment, and can lead to a suspension or revocation of posting privileges. Such posts may be edited, removed and/or locked. The most effective way to report a player is to right click on his name, and choose "Report".
