World War Z

World War Z is getting a new update on July 22. According to the announcement made by the game’s Community Manager Jellyfoosh, the upcoming update will add the new Player Reports System in the game.

In other words, Player Reports is a new ban system for World War Z, where you will now be able to report players in the game if they caught doing any harassment, bullying, cheating, exploiting in the game.

The upcoming update will also add two more things called the Repercussions and Code of Conduct to combat such type of activities.

How to Use Player Reports in World War Z

Player Reports

To report a player in the game, you just need to go to the“Recent Players” menu, located in Party. From there, you will be able to report or can also block a player. Blocking a player will prevent any contact with the player, including through matchmaking.

You will also get 4 reasons on the new The Report Player tab including Offensive Language, Cheating, Exploiting, and Inappropriate Behaviour. You can find the full description for all the three 4 reasons listed below.

  • Offensive Language: Harassing, threatening, bullying, embarrassing, spamming, or doing anything else to another player that is unwanted, such as repeatedly sending messages or making personal attacks or statements about race, sexual orientation, religion, heritage, etc. Hate speech is not tolerated.
  • Cheating: Using unauthorized software programs or tools, such as “auto” software programs, “macro” software programs, “cheat utility” software program or applications, exploits, cheats, or any other game hacking, altering or cheating software or tool.
  • Exploiting: Using any software or program that damages, interferes with or disrupts World War Z Services or another’s computer or property, interfering with or disrupting another player’s use of World War Z Services.
  • Inappropriate Behaviour: Engaging in any activity that significantly disturbs the peaceful, fair and respectful gaming environment, such as team killing, improperly using voice chat, animation spamming, etc.

According to the announcement, players who do not respect the Code of Conduct may be banned from accessing the online features of World War Z. The ban may first last for 3 hours, with subsequent bans being 24 hours, 3 days, 7 days, 30 days and then permanent.
