    User *moderated* has a racial slur (the N-word) as a user name, with a space between the 2 middle Gs in the word. I don’t know how Battle Bay handles these things.

    I too have seen these players with n*gga in their names and I am greatly offended each time.

    I've also seen players promoting the 'kkk' in their name which is extremely offensive as well. It would be greatly appreciated if I didn't have to be reminded of racial epithets and hate groups when I want to unwind and play my favorite game.

    For example user #LGVLJCRD uses a variation of the n-word.

    Please always use the in game reporting feature or message me directly and I will take care of these!
    (the above reported is already taken care of :) )

    I’ve reported a user with an offensive name multiple times and nothing was done. Any tips what I should put in the report?

    When I’ve reported names, I’ve tried to explain why they are offensive (because an offensive word or phrase in one country may not be easily identifiable as offensive in other parts of the world). But as The Grim Repair says, you can message her directly as an alternative.

    Similar for me.. I had to report a user multiple times over a course of weeks. I'm assuming that since I haven't seen the user lately maybe it was finally taken care of.

    its not great :)
    Depends really on what is being spammed and if the user is deliberately trying to annoy others.

    Doesn't that just mean happy?
    Anyone using that as an insult is either a kid or pretty shallow!
