    what the hell.

    http://shadowbane.ubisoft.com/beta/codeofconduct.php

    The nature of the game encourages a hostile game environment, and they are saying you can't be hostile? I think there is a conflict here.

    I was talking a lot of crap to other players today. On 5 different occassions, I had people quote this new "code of conduct" to me. They tell me I had better not keep being mean or they would report me.

    There's a difference between role playing a race that's hostile to another one, and calling every guy near you a **** eating faggot.

    I prefer to be nice to everyone. Gets you into more groups and makes less enemies.

    my point is that shadowbane is based on PvP, so the gaming environment is a hostile one. People play shadowbane so they can be jerks and PK random nOObs and stuff. Now that's not allowed. This seems like a major conflict.

    You don't need to use the above things to be hostile. They just don't want people being offensively hostile.

    It's not explained well enough, I'm 99% sure it means in an out-of-game context. In other words, you can't say you're actually going to go to their house in real life and kill them. It shouldn't bar threatening their character.
