How will the game differentiate between intentional and unintentional self destruction?

will you monitor those considered to be bots or will people have to bring them in again to keep them from botting. I suggest looking around for websites that are botting websites for the game and if they show examples of what the botting does then you can monitor the activity of people to bring them to justice. or have you devised some other way.

Very good decision WG, instead of developing a MM based on skill, better issue fines to those that disagree and prefer to stop wasting their time in a battle that is lost from the first minutes, its much easier. Now Wot is not only the only game that doesnt allow you to refuse playing the maps you dont like, it also force you to stay in after you start one of this games.

As for the bot part, its completely useless if its only warning. Their xp its still there after the ban expire .Most of them are probably not created for personal use, but rather for being sold or used as second accounts ( back-up tanks to be used if main account tanks are locked ) or chips in clan wars.

as they said in the article self distruction unintentionally will only receive the warning as intentional destruction is done on a regular basis. so say you are artillery and you destroy yourself along with an enemy tank in close quarters, yes this may happen again but not as often as suiciding which is done several time to the players who do it. it has become smaller lately but this should reduce the number to almost 0.

they have banned their accounts for 2 weeks or more and lots of botting programmes don't activate till the game is launched so this may stop the circle for a while till people start noticing

This is definitely a welcome addition. However, I feel the most pressing problem is the people who rage at their teammates ("idiots", "morons" and "noobs" being favourite terms). I play the game in order to enjoy myself and have fun. The haters are far more effective at ruining my gaming experience than occasionally losing a battle due to a bot. The current complaints system appears to be inadequate to keep these people from playing.

 

Would Wargaming please consider implementing effective measures to prevent people from poisoning the community in this manner, and driving new players away from the game?

 

Edit: I should apparently add that I take this game seriously, and do my utmost to play well (have a look at my stats if you like). "Just having fun" does not mean that it is acceptable to ruin the experience for everyone else. Most of the time, the hate is not directed at me, but it still upsets me. I am here to play a multiplayer cooperative game. I just wish to do so in a friendly environment. Disabling chat is not an option, as it prevents me from cooperating with other people.

Edit 2: Is there anyone here who does not play the game in order to have fun? Really?

'It should be noted that cases of continued botting after the final warning and suspension will result in a permanent ban.' I thought they only resetted their account and they kept all their premium tanks, gold and premium days.

"The team needs you! Leaving the battle before it ends or before your vehicle is destroyed is considered desertion and can result in a disciplinary penalty."

 

So, if I die in the first 5 min, and the game goes on for another 10 min, I get a penalty for going back to my garage and play with another tank?

Awesome thinking , you should play tetris then or something in single play mode . This is , as stated on web site , TEAM BASED GAME , and you wonder why ppl insult you when you " play the game in order to enjoy myself and have fun " .

Bots are far more bigger problem then this minor problem that are beaing fixed in future, why you should not allow players to do " harakiri" if they like?? Or if you constantly get mm , and losing battles one by now , when you get on bottom of the list , and therefor you can do crap to influence on the outcome, why not just exit game?. It pisses out to depend on higher tier noobs , like one quoted above , who just play to have ( he )  fun. You will fix with this patch , almost nothing. Fix BOTS A.S.A.P.

You have an option to desactivate the ingame chat. This way you will enjoy "yourself" alone the game.

Agree, and its seppuku

 

Are you aware that during WW self destruct of a tank by their crew happens? Its historically accurate ! And when a tanker drowns himself, he will already pay for that in repairs cost plus crews won't earn any xp. Isn't that already self-punishment? Why add this? I see far less self-destruct than bot or afk.

 

Idea, add a consommable name "dynamite": after XX second, your tank self-destruct, no blast damage,  giving to your crews time to retreat and fair time for the bloodseeker.

I have to admit this summer was quite terrible! Many obvious bots!

 

Anyway, thank you WG for these new features! It wont possibly solve all the problems, but it is good thing!

 

GG WG!

Whilst I agree with this system, they also need to offer better incentives for not quitting the battle when most of your team have died in 2 minutes.

 

To coin an old adage, how about a few more carrots and less stick?

 

I don't think this will make people play any better or make them any more productive because they didn't quit or suicide.  What is the point of playing a lost game when you know your XP is going to be pitiful?  Yes, there is the sh*te 'Courageous Resistance', but the number of times you can actually achieve this really doesn't make the effort worth while.  Rather than punishing the symptoms of a flawed XP distribution system, they should be providing a 'carrot' for people to continue playing when the game seems lost.  I would like to see that top 3 tankers on the losing team receiving the same XP rewards as those on the winning team - without requiring any other criteria.  I see this as being more of an incentive for people to play well and not quit than the proposed punishment.  I know for me, this punishment is not going to change the way I play if my team all die in 2 minutes.

 

Negrep away...

Turn off battle chat in your settings. Not a great solution as then you don't see any messages and still get the players who like to draw "Attention to E2" 45 times, but at least we don't see the childish stuff. Battle Messenger was the perfect solution, but I don't think it is supported any more.

Not sure how this will actually stop anything. You get fined for what you did in that battle? If you sat afk or went to garage you didn't do anything anyway, you won't get fined. These penalties are far too light, players should be penalized for following games, and/or get 1 hour bans.
