I've just come back to tanks since I was away since warships started, and I'm amazed that you don't have the same system of complementing players on a job well done in the battle. All I see are those negative waves!

Sadly there are no such teammates that you can compliment in 99% of the games

I agree we need to look positive, not slag people off. It promotes team play and reduces toxicity.

 

I decided a few weeks agot to start messaging players after the game and complement them on a move, kill, patience, assisting someone etc.  Since then I have messaged dozens of players.

 

Pretty much everyone I messaged has replied with a nice comment and thanks. Some ended up in a platoon.

You can of course offer encouragement in chat or message in garage after the match. This rarely happens due to player attitude as typified in an earlier post.

Agreed. If you think someone ‘did good’ then it seems only right that you put in a little effort if you want to thank them. The downside, not everybody accepts PMs from random players.

Quite right often pm a fellow player, either red or green, if they have done well. Especially those with a low battle count I reckon it encourages folks to be positive.

I agree more should be done to cultivate a more positive outlook.

I'm sending out PM's to players now, if you make other people feel good then it all adds to the game enjoyment.

basically this, and the majority of players do it as a form of insult, to bait you into replying and then put you down again which is why anyone who PM's me after a battle with "gg" or "good game" or similar, I tell them to **** off (the stars I put in manually, most will be able to fill in what I mean)

too many of them aren't actual compliments at all and are meant to stab you.. so why would I treat any of them seriously?


 

this game is far too toxic for a compliment system to work properly, and most will simply compliment their TKing friend or clan member to get their rating higher, as presumably, OP suggests that this would contradict the reports? or nullify them in some way? get a lot of "likes" and it lowers your "hates", so to speak?


 

it *could* work, if it wasn't counted for anything special, and was simply a tooltip in the garage saying "someone congratulated you in your last battle". if it was a statistic in the garage or anything other, then people will find ways to outsmart the system to "farm" them


 

im not a toxic person in general, but I just cant see this working with the amount of "GG **tard go **** your mom" type players around....

It would be nice with a postitve system to boost positivity. Heck it wouldn't hurt to give thanks once in awhile.

As long as it didnt give anything, since there are too many people, that would abuse it.

Removed some of your words to make the point more clearly. Have a word with yourself please.

Warships' player base is far superior to that of Tanks'

 

For a start the population is smaller, so you are not in a literal sea of degenerates and those of diminished brain functions. The better quality of gameplay then has a knock-on effect of reducing toxicity.

I will say thanks, and/or well done to an ally for a good win- especially if I have done well and really wanted a win in the face of a team of largely useless players. (and an apology if I died doing the good work)

 

I don't always get a thanks, but I know that I have shown my appreciation, which balances out some of the negative vibes that tend to be directed (a lot) at useless players.

Well, certainly the forumites should start pushing encouragement to other players, maybe it will filter down and reduce the toxicity in game?

New years resolution anyone?

 

Or in the words of Bill and Ted, "Be excellent to everyone"

Sadly, I do miss the cross team chat - either to occasionally compliment a Red player for playing exceptionally well or in a near DRAW situation to try and bait the survivor to come out of hiding/capping, but due to the historic levels of "toxic chat" such a feature is unlikely to return.  Having a Complimentary feature (aka WoWs) would be nice.

And guess what, every game tonight that we did good, I PM'd the players and thanked them for a job well done, there was a battle in Himmelsdorf where an at8 was alone, I and a type 64 came to help, took out 6 tanks and held the flank, they are now on my friends list. We should as a new year resolution, be better to each other, If you want to rage, keep it to your self.
