Good Evening HWS Community
unfortunately tonight a player got banned from our HWS Discord without reason or my approval.
I talked already with the person who did it and it won’t happen again.
Furthermore the topic came up what it means if disabled players (for example PTSD) are trying to enjoy Empyrion on HWS. It should not be a tabu topic I thought.
First of all, everyone who suffers from anything, must know that Empyrion is not designed to be an accessible game. Neither color blindness, nor fear of spider, nor other things, that might hurt those humans, are addressed at all in the game.
Playing Empyrion is totally done at your own risk.
Gameplay wise it also works only at a level of respect and understanding. Nevertheless, it is not a free ticket to mine peacefully in PvP because “I’m disabled”. You can hope for understanding but it is in the first place your job to protect yourself and avoid situations like that to happen.
A blind human also does not just walk on a high traffic streets “because he can” and others will “understand it”.
I hope everyone respects each other and don’t make the life of someone else harder than it is, please keep this in mind.
Both parties should know when to back off/log out and just don’t bother about it anymore.
The topic is probably a tricky one and contact me if situations get out of hand but overall responsibility is asked from everyone here.
Your HWS Team
