Hi folks ..

Isn't just annoying nowadays how many players when they die ,or when things don't go as they like during the battle, they just start beating the heck out of the left mouse button and SPaaaaam the map for a long period of time .. !!!

I mean I'm kind of okay with bashing out in chat and what not , although really annoying and distracting as well, you can always choose not to read what they're typing , at least that's what I do when players starts to go at each other in chat .. just ignore it ..

BUT .. in spamming the map , it just gets to your mind when it is for too long and all the left of your screen is filled with green long lines all the way to the top.

I know you can mute them for battle and be done with it .. but a lot of times 'when you decide to mute' those couple of seconds will distract you and might be the reason of your death or get of out of the tempo that your in ..

WG .. any solution for this ? there is no way that a player who spam the map continuously for more than , lets say , 10 sec is trying to have a good plan or aware his team for something.. why not put some waiting time when it starts spamming .. pretty much when i click on a player to tell them to help or to fall back , I can't spam that .. just make like that 

I ve been playing wot for some 5 years now .. and I didn't mind it till recently cuze I think it's starting to get out of control ..

.

Why not WG just do something about it .. it's really easy make a code or a rule for it and throw it in the game with one of the mini patches 

besides we're playing with 15 players .. if I installed some modification and rest my mind.. all of my teammates will still be annoyed with that spamming guy .. getting the modification will solve one point of view of the problem .. but it will still be there .

They did do something about it (at least in their mind). You can block a person for multiple pings for the duration of the game.

So you know the solution already.

 

BTW, I believe the code is there and always has been, it's just broken.

How difficult can it be to ban someone for a week if they click the map more than 30 times.

Ya I know and I do it often but , when you get to this point when you decide to block that person ,  me and the whole team would be kind of tilted already

and I bet that a scaring amount of players have no idea how to mute someone

They took a huge step with removing ' all chat ' and everyone was happy about it . why not fix this thing ..

and it's already working when you want to mark one of your allies to tell them to stop or help , you can do this often but it never gets to the point where it becomes annoying .

it's just odd why they're passive about the spamming !

They barely do it with team damage or platoon trolling let alone this

It's simple if there is no action around you , find that player and mute him . but if your trying to be cheeky with some moves or flanking someone  , the spamming just gets to you eventually and it might cost you the game

ya not everyone .. sure by removing it the game lost a bit of a social factor for the sake of haters or snitches . but the important thing is that they acted "although very late" and removed it ..

delaying the pinging won't raise any mixed feelings about it as long as they do it right

Maybe not, but it was the right thing to do.

Game is now far less toxic at the minor expense of only being able to 'socialise' with 14 strangers instead of 29

Press RRR to activate autodrive -> Ctrl+mouse over message in teamchat -> click shield with + to black for this battle -> Done? Unless you play with trackpad maybe and need both hands to steer....

You don't need to find their name, just point at the spam and there is a red x to click on.

 

When the chat isn't broken that is.

Oh yes.  You shouldn't even have to do this.

I know I can block players but when I am in a tense fight thats not always handy.

So yes. The mapspamming is one of the most annoying things and I hope that one day they will fix it.
