The FDG Support Portal provides a template to direct players on what information is needed for a valid player complaint. Nonetheless, there are several things to keep in mind which may prevent your complaint from being rejected, saving everyone's time and effort.
When you submit a player complaint, you are alleging the reported player(s) broke server rules. When staff process player complaints, they decide whether the reported player(s) act(s) or omission(s) were inconsistent with server rules. Understanding the rules thoroughly will not only help you in accurately identifying potential violations but also ensure that your complaint is relevant and valid.
When reporting a player, providing solid evidence is paramount. Ensure you have enough proof to support your claims, such as screenshots, videos, or chat logs, clearly displaying the alleged rule-breaking behavior. Remember that the more compelling evidence you can present, the easier it becomes for the staff to assess the situation and make a fair judgment. If you don't provide any evidence, the complaint will be more-than-likely rejected. Though staff members have access to supplementary evidence in the form of server logs, it is not their responsibility to provide the necessary evidence for your complaint.
While it's essential to gather sufficient evidence and present a well-structured complaint, it's equally important to submit it promptly. Delays in reporting incidents might lead to loss of crucial evidence or make it harder for the staff to investigate effectively. Act swiftly, but ensure your complaint is comprehensive and thought-out.
