People who spam the mini-map with "attention"  are chuffin annoying. Maybe have a time limit in between attempting to click on every map square a few times, (slight over exaggeration) which it would appear some players are aiming for. Admittedly some players get frustrated when the enemy team is flanking and mopping up your team like bread and gravy but eventually it goes past helpful.

Maybe people should actually look at the map so no one would ever have to spam it?

Maybe people should stop sleeping when they play this game.

 Of course you get frustrated when you ask for help 2 minutes and your team is slower than this guy:

Maybe people shouldn't overextend and then blame others for death?

Yeah, they are intensely annoying. If anything they harm their team's chances of winning.

Agreed. The most annoying thing in this game.

I just mute anyone who spams or mouths off in chat. It only takes a click on their name in the chat and avoids further annoyance or distractions so I can get on with the game. I've never known anyone to communicate anything useful or constructive following such behaviour so I don't feel I lose anything by doing this.

Yep I do the exact same thing but there are times in the thick of battle when you don't even have the few seconds necessary to block someone. And a constantly scrolling chat box combined with repeated ping sound effects isn't helping your concentration. 

 

Personally I can't think of any situation that would require a player to ping the map more that 3 times in 10 seconds. Surely WG could implement that as a gameplay menu option.

I disabled the chat and that is an epic solution for insults, and provocations. And now i can play the game and not engage in usless chat. But make an option to disable this map pinging also. And there you go. Solution...

It's a simple fix WG refuses to add since years.
And since we're at it, a small icon that indicates that the player has the chat (and the map) deactivated would be useful, too. Just for the few people who are still interested in teamplay...

Because total noobs never pinged the map to bring attention to the help they need for going into stupid places.

It makes them feel important for the only time in their otherwise worthless lives. Let them have their ego trip and ignore.

The effect can be intensified if it's arty telling the team to 'do this' or 'do that', it's almost like they have nothing better to do.
