Real-Life Threats

Blizzard Archive
This is a reminder that we take threats made against other players, our employees, officials, or other public figures, as well as threats of self-harm extremely seriously.

We realize that there can be stressful and trying moments in the game or when interacting with others, but there is no acceptable time to go beyond the boundaries of the game and threaten others with real-life harm.

If someone is found to be making a real-life threat, we will report it to the appropriate law enforcement agency. This may result in a full investigation, direct contact by local authorities, and real-life repercussions. If you see anyone making a real-life threat against you, themselves, or others, please report it immediately. To report threatening in-game chat, use the right-click Report > Real-Life Threat option, or for forum posts, use the thumbs-down button and choose "Real-Life Threats."
