Welcome to Season 2 Episode 12 of the Epic Questions Podcast The Podcast that always has something to say. The episode you are about to hear is entitled “Community: A Double Edged Sword. [WOW] and was recorded on August 2nd, 2016.

On today’s show I will be answering questions about the level of toxic behavior in our community. Questions were asked specifically about World of Warcraft, but can definitely apply to all Blizzard games, and even events outside of game. Today I answer questions about how can we stop the corruption of our community, when things go too far, what can Blizzard do, and what can we do. And then I give some advice on how to overcome cyber-bullying.

Overview by :

Ever listen to a podcast and wish they talked about what YOU wanted to hear about? Well now is your chance! Each and every week I’m going to sit down and do just that. With Season Two of the Epic Questions podcast, I take YOUR Blizzard Entertainment game questions and bring a different perspective to each and every one of them. Here at the Epic Questions Podcast, no question goes unanswered, and no listener goes unheard.

Asking Questions just got a little more Epic.

What’s Different With Season Two:

Season 2 of Epic Questions is going to be a little more discussion focused. Previously on the show, we answered every questions we received. As much as we love questions, it became hard answering the same questions we had just answered a few weeks prior, or just last week. So you control the show, and how often it is produced. A new Episode will be recorded as soon as we receive 5-10 solid questions to answer on the show. Questions will be reviewed by the hosts then hand selected for the next Episode.

Previously the show was only answered World of Warcraft based questions. But this time around, we are going to deep dive into the whole Blizzard Universe. But have no fear, the episodes will be split into two different categories: World of Warcraft Only, & Blizzard Entertainment. This will make it so you folks that only want to hear Warcraft discussion don’t have to skip through episodes to find the information you want to hear.

From time to time, the show will invite special guests to help with some or all questions on different topics, so if you have anyone you want to hear from, let us know!


Epic Answers:

This is the part of the show where I take questions submitted by members of the World of Warcraft Community and try to bring different perspectives to each and every one of them.

On today’s show, I will be responding to listeners questions about how can we stop the corruption of our community, when things go too far, what can Blizzard do, and what can we do. And then I give some advice on how to overcome cyber-bullying.

Shawna via Email — In the World of Warcraft community, there are millions of members from all different backgrounds, races, religions, gender, etc. and it suffers from the same hatred we see in the rest of the world. Attacks on each other based on faction, class, race, server. In your opinion, what can be done to stop this before this fantasy world becomes just as hate filled as our real world?

Shawna via Email — Teasing, being sarcastic, and joking around with each other is a common occurrence in any social community. But what happens when it goes too far?

Anonymous via Site Contact — As someone who has been bullied most of their life by classmates, co-workers, friends and family and more, I use video games as an escape. In game I can be anything I want, a brave hard hitting warrior, or a majestic spell casting Mage, or even a tree keeping my team alive. In world of Warcraft, I’m the hero. I’ve slayed dragons, I’ve killed massive demons, and I’ve gained confidence. But then the hate shows its head again, and it’s no longer an escape for me. What can be done inside this safe place for some many by Blizzard in order to keep us safe? And willing to return?

Anonymous via Site Contact — These threats are not just in-game anymore, they are on Facebook, the forums and even Twitter. What can be done to control those situations before they too get out of control? Is the silence feature enough?

Anonymous via Site Contact — Bullies on the Internet are every where, and there is no one solution to the toxicity problem. What’s some advice you would give to your listeners who may be experiencing trolls or bullies in World of Warcraft and its surrounding community?

That’s all the time I have for questions this week, but have no fear, I’ll have more to go over in the next episode of the Epic Questions Podcast. Send all questions to the show via Twitter, e-mail, Facebook, Ask.FM and beyond! Thanks in advance!
