My 11 year old daughter's account banned?!?!

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

I have a major issue. My 11yr old daughter has been banned from F13. We have two computers that sit in the exact same room. We both play with each other pretty much on a daily bases. My account is fine... ShogunGamerz. Her account is perm banned ShogunGamingLLC in-game known as DarkShadow. I record almost every single one of our matches and upload them to youtube. Both her and I conduct ourselves in a proper manner. We both have not violated any of the TOS, or Code of Conduct. The only thing we are guilty of is occasionally leaving a match early when others are trolling or helping jason kill others.

I believe we are owed an explanation of the ban and with proper proof. She's 11 years old and I bought this game for her on her birthday a couple months back. I'm not trying to play a sympathy card, but since she woke up this morning with a ban she has been in nothing but a tearful mess. She keeps asking me what she done. She doesn't troll, doesn't use inappropriate language or behavior, she doesn't use glitches or exploits.

I'm 100% certain that she has played no different than her friends and I have played for quite sometime. I have almost 400 hours logged since release. And I have quite a few terabytes of video footage of us playing. It's an injustice really. I'm not going to scream refund or any of those words if I'm provided with a legit reason. But she's done nothing wrong I'm 110% certain of that.

Please contact me with an explanation of what she has done. Once again her account is ShogunGamingLLC and her in game name is DarkShadow.

You can contact me I guess on here via PM, or email me at [omitted]

Thank you for your time. Please do not delete this in an attempt to hide my inquiry.

Sincerely,

Derrick W.

Hello.

I would recommend taking this issue to their support page on Twitter @F13GameSupport, or send an E-Mail to f13game@fearthegun.com | You're more likely to get a response from there!:)

lol did you really just recommend @F13gamesupport? They're useless. It's all canned response.

Best bet is definitely emailing f13game@fearthegun.com (which is likely what @F13gamesupport would have said) and tweet @Randygbk and bring his attention to the email to expedite the process.

It's most unfortunate to hear this has happened to you. I truly feel for your daughter. I have five daughters myself, and my youngest is 12. All of them play the game, and enjoy every minute of it. I do hope this matter gets resolved to your satisfaction. And if you do hear back from the powers that be, would you let us know what happened?

This game is rated "M" for mature, your daughter is 11 years old... This game isn't designed for children at all... Only for people aged 17 years old and older should play the game.

http://www.esrb.org/ratings/search.aspx?from=home&titleOrPublisher=Friday the 13th

Intense Violence, Blood and Gore, Suggestive Themes (SEX?), Strong Language.

 

Is it a children account? Maybe, it's the reason she got banned.

I simply don't understand why parents let them play titles like Grand Theft Auto, Friday the 13th: The Game, Saint's Row ; those games aren't suited for them!

As a matter of fact, I agree with the ban. Why isn't she playing Splatoon 2 instead?

You're acting like when you were a kid you didnt watch things you weren't supposed to. Lmao, I'm almost positive that most people who saw any Friday the 13th film saw them when they were a kid. I know I did, it gave me nightmares for a long while. My point being that at least her father is there supervising her behavior and is interacting with her too. Hell I wish my father played games with me wen I was growing up.

I simply don't like the fact, that this game has children on servers playing in public matches with people using strong language. They are kids, not adults, not teenagers... 11 years old, there's a limit...

I think we are in the minority here, but the very first thought I had was "why would someone let their 11 year old daughter play this game..."

If the parent decides to expose their child to this sort of thing, it is not up to us to judge them for it.

From what I read, this seems like a responsible parent. He or she is playing with the child, guiding their experience.

I am pretty sure most of us probably saw these movies when we were young, and I can't be the only one who did a ton of stupid shit as a kid.  That being said, I am not sure the ol' "I did it as a kid and I turned out fine" strategy is one that I would go with for my own children :P

If you don't have children then don't try to teach parents. Aslong as she does not say suka or the n word every 10 seconds like other people why not. It's not like theres sexuality in the game besides loading screens. The gore in this game is not even close to having an effect on younger people. I saw my first horror movie when i was 9. Lmao world first problem. If he's watching her let her have fun.

Yeah, like those same parents, let their kids playing Grand Theft Auto... The problem is kids shouldn't be allowed to play with adults in an online "M" rated game... I'm tired off salty kids online, that they are teabagging for nothing, crying, shouting, etc.

Yeah, it is up to the parents to raise their children. Not a community, a government, or agency. A parent. My parents allowed me to watch movies like so at an early age, with the understanding it is a movie. Fake, as long as I could draw the line between make believe and reality it was not a problem. If he chooses to do the same with his child, who's business is it besides his own really?

@Definitelynotjason You are absolutely correct. It is not our job nor our business to try & raise anyone's children. Regardless if these kids have consent or not. I understand some people deplore playing online with children but unfortunately underage kids are the main consumers of these M rated video games. I would even go as far to say that these games are more marketed to children then adults seeing that they make up the majority portion of the community.

Now in order to be banned off F13 somebody must have filed a report unless under rare circumstances a ban was given by sheer mistake which is highly unlikely. The best thing you can do is try to remember if during any session maybe somebody was disgruntled for whatever reason enough to file a report. Maybe perhaps for example your daughter ran pass Jason & she was ignored or not seen & this person recorded a clip to make it seem like they were working together. You would be surprised how desperate people get online when they are angry.

Perhaps somebody was using hacks/mods during the game session. If that's the case & you chose not to leave. You then place yourself at risk of being banned for simply playing in the session. Should someone report the people in the match then it would make you guilty by association even if you didn't partake in any of the hacking/modding or benefit from it in any way.

Another thing to consider is did you have any guests come over & play on your daughters account? If not then that's not the issue if so then maybe perhaps they might have done something against the rules which maybe the reason for the ban.

Like i said. He is watching over his daughter. Im sick and tired of these (no racismn intended) russian kids that keep screaming in their language and giving me ear cancer. If she behaves I don't see any problem with it. Even most kids play MMO's and they're rated 12.

That's the problem... If I'm an adult, I don't want to play an "M" rated game with kids, why servers are such infested with immature kids? Answer is simple : irresponsible parents.

It is none of your business how a parent raises their child. Here is the excerpt about the ratings. 

Quote

Games with this rating contain content which the ESRB believes is generally suitable for those aged 17 years and older.

The ESRB's beliefs are not a hard and fast rule of how mature a child may or may not be. Neither are your personal moral compass or problems with "salty kids online".

There you go. Raise your children as you see fit, and let this person raise theirs' as they see fit. Easy-peasy.

I'm tired of asshole adults online, can we ban them too? I've seen plenty of videos with grown ass people doing the exact thing you are blaming children for.  I'm a grown man with a family, and I believe this person has a right to expose their children to whatever media they feel said children are mature enough for. It's not up to some faceless government entity, or judgmental people online to decide this.

Another thing to consider aside from my post above but you think somebody maybe saw this clip of yours & even somebody partaking in that match then decide to report it?

Perhaps this video is the smoking gun...

This 100% tired of people jumping on this the children belong to a community mindset. It is no one's business what movies or games this parent allows his child to watch or play. Not a government's business nor anyone else's.

Both of my kids play M rated games all the time and they have given us a list of things they don't feel they are ready to see and we research each game fully and talk to them about what's in it then we sit down and play the game before hand and continue playing with them. You can't hide your kids from the world but you can educate them and counsel them about the things they will inevitably be exposed to. We also don't allow trolling in our house or inappropriate  language.

I have no problem with a kid playing an "M" rated game offline. it's their own business... But online, that's the problem. When I buy an "M" rated game, it's not fun to interact with kids when it's not supposed to... I have a problem playing an "M" rated game online with kids, when a game that's isn't suited for them. With Splatoon 2 or Minecraft, it's a different story...
