From a safety point of view, the game has no private chat facility, but players can join và take part in Global và Clan group chats. That leaves open the possibility that children could be persuaded khổng lồ chat away from the game by a fellow clan member.

Some parents have sầu complained of bad or offensive language in group chats, that children can over up in a group with adults they don"t know và that there is no reporting facility within Clan chat. It is possible to report offensive sầu players in Global chat.
