How should WG deal with these types of players? In game reporting seems to do nothing.

I come across them once in a while, I then just blacklist them after some healthy abuse given in return, feels satisfying in a way. In game reporting has never worked for me as I never know if anyone is listening, I often see 'report xyz for being a bot' etc, probably by the same kids. It is annoying and distracting when you are busy figuring how best to take down the enemy or are actively engaged with the enemy.

 

I also see the same report this that or the other when some see TD's and arty correctly being where they should be which is in the rear.

Not often, but when I do I try to trigger them as much as possible (yes I do love counter trolling a troll more than I should), especially if they are vocal in the chat as well, generally speaking they all snap when you go a bit gay on them since they all seem to be severely homophobic.

I didn't watch the replay so pardon me, but regarding the title questions. I can't say I've came across a troll in awhile, or I guess what I consider a troll. The last I can think of would be a long time ago now, wherein a Waffle Pz. IV On our team was doing that arty barrel thing and I had tried to warn them in chat (of course, for no reason as they all still died to him anyway). Though I think he went blue, I had no reason to spend the game going after him instead of actually playing my match.

 

Nonetheless, if I were to have a troll target me, I'd honestly probably just stop playing. I did have one T26E4 Try to do it to either my AMX 13 F3 or Lorr. 155 50, don't remember which but either way I just never fired my gun as I noticed him doing it. He eventually got bored and went after another arty on the team instead. That said, it does depend a bit more on the situation. If say he's on low health and I have no reason not to, some guy deliberately trolling me by ramming his tank into me or something like that, I will gladly just shoot him. I couldn't care less if he were to yell in chat to report me as a result and try to act innocent, or if the team decides to actually attack me as a result of that which could result in a defeat (though saying that, I don't see anything wrong with shooting said "friendly" as IMO, they are a threat to the team). The satisfaction of destroying someone trying to be a **** is enough.

Based on your avatar and level of reading comprehension we've found yet another meme, hello Steve the IS-7 driver.

Either i troll them back or just ignore them depending on the mood, almost always they have worse stats than me so i can just be annoyingly smug about it, which pisses them off even more, or i just ignore them, in some kind of way it's satisfying to ignore them and see how long it takes for them to close the chat window after putting effort to insult me.

Funny how he complains about your performance in higher tiers, that you are padding in lower tiers and camping in lights when you have higher average tier, more average spotted per game and his performance in higher tiers is s*** compared to yours. He must think himself a superunicum because he does good and have 3-marked the "not-so-op" Maus.

I thought it was interesting that they questioned the OP’s sexuality before asking if they could perform a sex act on them.

Did you specifically pick an anagram of "necrose" for your name?

 

Because it seems you're dying here.

Have a look at their stats, game stats and overall stats, and with the usual level of troll you should find plenty of material to work with in composing a reply.

- I rarely meet people like this guy. But then again, I do not have stats as good as you do. I noticed [edited]picking on unicums for the dumbest of reasons. My XVM cammo is working as intended. :)

 

- Wow, he really lacks creativity when he tries to be insulting. I like to believe that when I get tilted in randoms, my curse words are at least somewhat funny and on the creative side of the vocabulary. :) This guys was just a generic arse with nothing relevant to say. He must be really sad in real life as well. Also, "gay" used as an insult is seems just as stupid as if you were to yell at someone "you freakin' hetero!!!" ... Dunno why some people are so close minded.

 

- You dealt with him as well as you could, I would have probably lost my temper and detracked him in the open so that the enemy tanks can send him to the garage... Witch is a mistake, ofc, but sometimes some people deserve it. And he clearly is one of those special snowflakes. I like your dancing around him and you luring him in the open so he can get what he deserves. :great:

 

-  When I do meet people like this guy, I usually try to change the flank and ask the team to report that player. If he insists, I troll him in chat. I usually am able to make them boil with rage by twisting their own words against them, it is surprisingly easy. :) And fun. :)

In no particular order:

- ignore them

- make fun of them

- report them

- add them to ignore list

 

And in case they're actively and persistently trying to impact my game negatively: report them to support.

Not often. Kudos to you for not putting too much of your time to answer his brain diarrhea. Just a bit of advice for dealing with such punks: newer obey, never agree, just provoke him more with as short sentences as possible. The time he spends raging in chat is the time he doesn't pollute another game with his presence. :trollface:
