Players who ping the map are incredibly irritating.

 

I know there are mods which mute map pings... 

 

But in version 9.2, how is it possible that players are able to ping the map limitlessness and are not muted after 3 pings?

 

3 pings on the map, we get it. Constantly pinging the map should incur a 30 second mute by the system.

 

Maybe in 9.2.1?

I think 20 pings in a minute should make your ammo rack explode


When youre dead you should be limited to just typed messages too which would reduce the problem significantly


I think 3 pings/messages in a 30 second period would be a reasonable limit though, often you miss what might have been an important message from someone because some window licker is either incessantly pinging some dumb location like the enemy base at the start of the game or is telling you 30 times over where an already spotted tank is

I mean that Help! command and others have cooldown, I don't have idea why map ping isn't blocked for a longer than 0,5 second.

Because why should WG bother with all those tiny but extremely helpful fixes, if they could also add HD rocks, a new and highly intuitive mission tab and similar things everybody needs?

Pingspam is annoying but there is an easy solution: Rightclick players name ingame, press "Block for battle" and problem solved...I need this maybe once every night so not a big deal.

And while you are doing that, you lose focus for a second, get derped or don't derp someone else. Also, i already see 3 pings as pingspam.

 

Why should there be a 'solution' to a problem that should not even exist in the first place? Pingspam is the most retarded thing ingame, but i guess WG prefers catering to selfish self absorbed raging turds rather then decent ppl. One thing can help though, just mute everyone that pings anything on the minimap when the game starts, chances are they are the ones that end up spamming retarded bs anyways.

Thing is that they did limit it to 3 like 2 years ago or so, and you got blocked for spam for 30 seconds after you did it a few times. But that lasted for like 2 patches or so before it was back to normal. Why? No idea.

Been wondering this myself. I used to use the ping blocking mod myself, but I just can't be bothered reinstalling mods after every little update anymore.

 

Perhaps people don't complain about it enough? :x
