Complaints on TeamSpeak are to be handled by any staff member (see 'Staff') online at the time of complaint, preferably the highest ranking member. If no staff member is available, two options are available;
Via TeamSpeak: Complaints against individuals can be made by right-clicking their name in TeamSpeak and selecting 'Make a Complaint'. You will be prompted to give a reason. With as much detail as possible, provide a reason for the complaint. A staff member will be in contact as soon as possible.
Via Website (Recommended): A ticket can be submitted on the OzzyGaming website (ozzygaming.com/support). When submitting a ticket, provide as much detail as possible and ensure that your ticket is clear and consise. A team member will check your ticket and assign it to the most appropriate member of staff. You will be updated as your ticket progresses and when a member of staff replies to the ticket.
If the complaint involves a staff member, please refer your complaint to another staff member. Your complaint will be addressed in private and, in most cases, you will remain anonymous. Complaints involving staff members are dealt with internally and to a high standard to ensure the credibility of OzzyGaming and its team. The outcomes of staff complaints are not disclosed to the public, except in exceptional circumstances.
