Surely it would be possible for WG to put a limit on the amount of times someone can click on the map. How about a time restraint after 5-10 clicks within a minute. I’m pretty sure these people do get reported, but I do not imagine much becomes of it. So why not put in some kind of system which will prevent this annoying behaviour, whilst still allowing to players to use the feature correctly during battle.

If someone pings at the map like crazy, just right click on his name and you have the option ''block for this battle''

You already have in game all the tools that can provide 'safe personal space' for every snowflake.

You don't even need to right click their name, if you hover over one of their spam messages then there is a red icon which blocks them for the battle if you click on it.

 

But it would be nice if WG could fix the spam protection which has been broken since forever.

You can't ping the map during the timer countdown so it's not like the functionality isn't coded into the game already. It would be trivial to extend it to no more than x pings over y duration.

But what if he REALLY NEEDS to click fifty times on a HT sidescraping in city, TD camping and holding a flank, MT flanking, LT spotting or SPG wanking it in the bush? Don't restrict someone's ability to rape his mouse button!

 

Ok, now seriously. If WG for whatever reason doesn't want to put a limit on clicks on map then at least they should make it so the clicker's tank blows up after 5 pings in the same quadrant (also maybe a perma ban after 10 clicks).

Then why should I be playing if I can't spam map pings? Fail OP fail.

It's a bit annoying though having to block 2-3 people nearly every game.

Just be thankful they didn't implement global voice chat then.

WG could just simply include map clicking disabled, when chat is disabled on random battles.
