Who are we
What we do
We shine a light on one of the darkest corners of the gaming world.
Gaming is one of the world’s largest entertainment industries, and harassment is one of the greatest threats it faces. Harassment creates a toxic culture within games, overshadows the positive aspects of gaming, and drives skilled gamers away. A staggering 70% of gamers have experienced hate speech, sexual harassment, threats of violence, or doxing, and the issue is on the rise. Already, 77% of gamers are calling for better solutions to limit toxic behavior in games. We cannot remain silent about this.
“Break the mold” means doing something in a new or different way. Rejecting the conventional way of doing things, challenging the status quo, or breaking established patterns. We refuse to accept the notion that harassment is a normal part of gaming culture. We want to contribute to creating a positive culture that values respect, inclusion, and diversity.
“Break the mold” is an initiative led by the e-sports team Apeks. We aim to uncover the how and why harassment became such a significant part of our environment. Through initiatives like awareness campaigns and activities, we aim to bring about real change.
Our goal is to combat harassment in the gaming community.
