Please put in a cool down period on map pinging.

Endless games where someone having a tantrum pings the map repeatedly as though it makes any difference to the outcome of the game.

Just make it every 5 secs or similar.

Apparently there is a mod that stops map pinging crazies but being an old fart I don't have it so also have to suffer these cockwombles who map ping constantly. Also the twatwafflers don't even explain why half the time.

Great idea, usually some SOB has been killed.

I usually block them, works for that battle anyways....

I know but when I am engaging three tanks I do not have the time to do that and it is utterly annoying, and has been for years now.

Well i am not saying is the best choice, i do agree with you that a spam detector/system wtv should be implement. But the choice for now is that, and not many people know it tho so i tried to help

Hope that they start it during the countdown > Right click > Block for battle, it's extremely unlikely you will run into them again anytime soon so it's a waste Blacklisting them.

It makes it difficult to play when the pings are going on (like poxy police sirens), when one's used to looking at the chat for useful information.

If the spam blocker I use doesn't work after 1.0 then it's bye bye WoT. The game is unplayable for me unless the spam gets blocked as I have a 1024 x 768 screen, and the spam covers 2/3rds of the screen, 1/3rd each side.

If they are still alive I just ask them to shoot more and ping less, a variation would be to ask 'who appointed you General?' If they are already dead I ask 'did you look at the map as closely before getting killed?' Pingers are very irritating but if there's time it's good to let them know what idiots they are, blacklisting them does nothing, they don't even know you've done it.

Map pinging LOL.

 

I play only random battles and it looks like 90% of players turn the map off let alone use it.

 

Arty counter A1 "PING"

Arty counter A1 "PING"

Goddam Arty counter A1 "PING"

4th arty shell hits me, DEAD

 "PING" "PING" "PING" "PING" "PING" "PING" "PING" "PING" (INSERT SWEAR WORD HERE) "PING" "PING" "PING" "PING" "PING" "PING"

Rage quit.

 

Thats why i ping maps like a baus.

I almost left this game because of the incessant pinging of the map. Down to a couple of games a week now.

 

I feel like the spam ticker in settings should block this or set it to one or maximum three pings from the same person.

 

Are there any mods out there?

Yes it does, it stops you having to deal with their annoying crap. They can ping to themselves in the corner like a dunce as much as they like then.

there is an option to block a player only for a battle, even if you have your blacklist full..

it will stop the ping and the chat as well... it works like a charm...
