I got Forum Banned for helping others overcome their Destiny addiction.

So whats up with all this Ninja (so-called) justice? I made a simple post explaining how I overcame my addiction to playing Destiny and I have helped quite a few others to just quit playing the game because it is a very unhealthy addiction for some people. I did not use any harsh language or call out anyone by name. I did not break any of the rules listed in the 'Code of Conduct' - yet I get banned from the Forums for an entire week. I really think Bungie is losing it. I mean the game is an ok game and yes, it is addicting. But getting hit with the banhammer for helping people who have addictive tendencies? That's just sorry as hell. I will continue helping other Guardians leave this game for as long as I can. I think Im almost at around 200 players that I have convinced to just 'let it go' and 'put it down for good'. Apparently, Bungie doesn't like this. Oh well..... I gave away my console and my gamertag and I feel so much better. Getting over an addiction is always a good thing. EDIT - I appreciate your replies. But it is what it is. https://www.who.int/features/qa/gaming-disorder/en/ EDIT 2 - Addiction comes in many forms. Whatever form it takes, you can be set free.

  • I'm only playing it because i got a suspension from Worlds of Warcraft that I just can't be bothered to fight. Destiny 2 is not that addictive. It's very much "more of the same thing" over and over. The risk / reward side of loot based games has been well known for over 2 decades. People who find gaming addictive might need some help. But they don't need it from unqualified people who are actively trying to disrupt a company's business model by encouraging players not to play. That's just a grown up observation. You would have to be pretty dim or wilfully unwilling to accept why you might get a sanction for this. The fact that you are here, with this post, clearly means that your addiction is far from over and you might serve yourself better with that rather than going into a place of business and shouting about how bad it is. There are laws against that. Just my personal musings on observation of this post, nothing more.

    • I’ve seen it first hand. I’ve seen college students nearly fail classes because they had to be logged on. I had to threaten kicking him from the clan to get him to take a break. I’ve seen people skip work when they get paid hourly wages. I’ve seen people play with broken thumbs and sprained wrists. I’ve heard fathers and mothers keep playing while babies wail in the background. I’ve heard married couples scream at each other cuz one of them won’t stop playing. None of these things are Bungie’s fault, but if they banned you for trying to help, that’s not cool. I mean, just look at the filth people are posting in this thread, and they ban you?

      • I am still scratching my head why they classified Gaming as a disorder (when many literally use it as a job) and then removed being transgender. Don’t @ me please. I’ve already had this argument more times than I can count

        • So...you got banned from a company's website because you told others to stop using their product...can't imagine why they would do that, I'm sure they love people to come to THEIR place of business and tell people not to buy from them lol. If people have an "addiction problem ", they should find help. But going to the place that "feeds their addiction" probably isn't the place to find help.

          • The worse thing about this is when gaming addiction is classified officially as a disease it will mean on the state eventually people will probably be able to claim money like jobseekers which will inevitably entice them to sit on their arses more

            • Didn't break the Code of Conduct? You basically went around telling people to quit the game. That sure sounds like disruptive behavior and could easily be seen as toxic posting. If you've got a problem with a forum Ninja's decisions, you can message them directly to make your case.

              • Maybe the ninjas are banning you to help your addiction. Obsession of a game you claim not to play
