SAVE ALL CHAT!
I here repeat my comment from SUPERTEST/COMMONTEST 9.16 thread!
I still think removing the "ALL CHAT" from game because a few ppl dont know how to beahave is a BIG mistake for the social aspect and game experience of WOT!
Please DONT let the SPEWING TROLLs ruin an awsome feature of WoT!
And as I can see in this thread, I am apparantly not the only one thinking this! PLEASE BRING BACK BATTLE "ALL" CHAT!
Just had my first game this patch, it definitly confirmed my fears! Game without ALL chat is simply not the same! I was acking to tell enemy they played well, but it was simply not possible!

Saddened by the plan to prevent cross team battle chat but I can see the reasoning.
I will miss the nice aimbot and reported comments as they were quite funny.
Also miss the ability to comment good game and nice shot, yep im afraid im one of those good natured guys who occasionally compliments someone who just killed me.
Cannot we just neuter the toxic players
The comment from Gremlin182 is SPOT ON for why I came into forums today to comment on this update!
To me this change really again "Rewards" the trolls that spew the goo, by removing this chat feature for all us others who actually use it to try and build a better and more fun game!
I can sure see the point in doing this to stop the toxics, but this again means that because a few (sorry the expression) Idiots, cant control their anger and behaviour, a for me BIG PART of the community and joy about the game is lost!
I am also one of those players congratulating the enemy arty for just oneshotting my full HP scout on the move, and the like, cause I recognize that it more often then not took skill to actually hit me! OFC, I am not happy that I am dead, but enemy player did what he was supposed to, I didnt "wiggle" enough! ;D Not his fault!
If I see someone some1 betraying their team, by f.ex. telling position or the like, I tell them that they should NEVER do that, simply because it aint fair to their team. However bad they think their teammates might have played!
I also find it is simply polite to send a GG to both own and enemy team in end of a game if they crushed us or vice versa, because those 2 simple letters recognices the effort both teams put in to win!
I think the better approach would be to restrict cross team chat for those who get a lot of complaints about doing the toxic spew/betrayal or something like that, and let all us others keep talking game like we always have!
This game is afterall not just about tanks, not for me atleast, I find its also about the community and talking to ppl in chat after dying f.ex., and often the funniest chats are when we can do some funny comments between teams, it simply brightens the game and makes it even more funny. And also often results in me and fellow teamplayers staying in the game even after death, trying to help teammembers remember positions or HP or stuff that can help our own still playing teammembers. I dont know if that will be as attractive anymore if it aint possible to throw jokes back and forth with enemy team!
So the POINT I am trying to make, is PUNISH the TOXIC BETRAYING SPEWERS, and not the "NORMAL GOOD GUYS", meaning not all of us others just trying to have a fun game with causual chat doing nothing wrong!
The mute feature is a good start, make an own complaint choice and just make it automatic mute some1s cross team talk ability for rest of game if a player gets a certain amount of complaints during a game.
And if a player has this happen to him X times during the last 24h, then he gets automatic muted for a week f.ex. And if it still keeps happeneing after the week mute, maybe with an increased mute time for each time he gets the punishment. So next time he gets 2 weeks, then 3 weeks mute etc.
And last but not least, you can implement a cooldown timer, so if the "offencive" player cleans his act up for a certain amount of time his "Mute status" gets restored to normal, meaning he will start the "ladder" again if he restarts spew, but hopefully has learnd that it wasnt so clever and actually has stopped the sh..!
Just a little suggestion, maybe some1 else has an even better idea, but I wanted to throw it out there!
Happy tanking guys, and looking forward to new spotting mechanics, new map and SWEDISH TANKS! ;D

So GL & HF All !
