Why cant it be like warships, limited to a few pings before there is a cool down. It is seriously annoying, and even more annoying when dead tankers sit there pinging map continuously for the rest of the game... surely enough people have complained about this already?

Too much work. You know... writing three lines of code is hard work. Everybody can cobble together a p2w premtank in a matter of minutes, but programming something like that is really difficult. You need a plan, you need to discuss it, you need to test it, multiple levels of quality control, all that stuff. That might take 2-5 years...

You're an optimist, no?

I find it odd that when I started playing this game... they had a spam filter. As in if you clicked more then 3 times on the same grid. They would block your for 10 seconds to prevent you from doing it again. Then one patch it was gone. Never to return.

 

People complain about bad teams and bad MM etc. But this is actually on the top of my list of stuff WG needs to fix. As adding people on ignore for that battle constantly is getting old.

This is high on my list of issues too. No clue why they still allow this.

Exactly.

This is something a patch fix could... fix.

I don't have much coding experience but, I'm gonna dare and say it wouldn't take me more than a week to do it. (But psssst... I might be wrong :hiding: )

It should be an option to turn a ping spam filter on/off if there is one, or there'll be a few FC's pulling their hair out :P

I'm pretty certain the ping spam prevention code is in the game and always has been.  It just doesn't work.

 

It used to kick in randomly, sometimes even the first time you tried to ping.

They do, Lt go here ping ping... spot this way ping ping...if no spots go here ping ping... Mt's go here taking this route ping ping ping ping ping etc.  I think they went to the micromanagement school of FCing:P

Just passing.

 

 

Aslain's Modpack has a perfectly good pingspamblocker.

Still, this kind of thing really shouldn't be something you need a mod for.
