Lately I have been getting some weird messages in World Of Tanks.

For about the last 2 weeks, everytime I start up World of Tanks the first time of the day I get a message

from a player with always the same content

--> "Give players free 1000k credits,10 place per day,all in WWW.******.COM"

 

When I look at the player's service record I can see their account is always created the same day or the day before I get the message.

I've always ignored their message, because it's obviously a scam, but lately it's been getting pretty annoying.

I put these people on my blacklist, including the person who send the message today, there's now 6 of them on my blacklist, but unfortunattely they keep coming back.

 

I do hope I'm not the only one with this problem, maybe people out here that know how to get rid of them, etc..

Sent a ticket to support, remain polite & provide the screenshots + remove the site-adress in your post, else you just serve the spammers will & spread their site among others, showcasing that them spamming accounts is worth it in spreading their site-links & so they will continue to do it.

Also, in the game settings you can select to only receive pms from people on your friends list, that way no one can message you if you haven't added them to your friends.

Why would I spend my precious time doing that while I could be playing the game. What purpose and what benefits would I get for doing that and creating a topic around it?

And it is you have no idea....

So if you want a clean bar just enable Receive Message only form Conact list. ( Hide Spam: Is not made for hide full text/PM`s )

 

 

 

Why all other Forums (WoT) are not fully filled by those trolls (dont see any spam troll topic)?

Look at general discussion.
Alt least 90% troll and spam.

?? Are you mad?? I get these messages too, every day. That is why I have arrived at this post as i want to know what is going on.

 

For you to be able to think about cloning your own account means it is something that is already planted in your mind. Then you decide to transfer that attention seeking onto others. 

The irony is that YOU are the troll in this thread.

lol what kind of attention? what kind of logic is this? instead of helping him, you showed your actual intention (attention seeker) :medal:

There is someone who writes to you: "spam", you complain about this mischief, this person reads it and feels better because he knows: "ah it works" How can I counteract? Quite easy, the checkmark turns on only messages from the known list. As much as you complain, ;"more fun this person will have".

 

"lol what kind of attention? what kind of logic is this? instead of helping him, you showed your actual intention (attention seeker)" = Not entirely correct, @bangash

 

"?? Are you mad?? I get these messages too, every day. That is why I have arrived at this post as i want to know what is going on.

For you to be able to think about cloning your own account means it is something that is already planted in your mind. Then you decide to transfer that attention seeking onto others. 

The irony is that YOU are the troll in this thread."  = If you think I'm a troll why did I post: Enable receive message from contact list, only? I think with "10k Battles" you should already know the basic settings of WoT... @h11poc

 

So for you :

 

To get a better gaming experience - Enable receive messages from contact list only - see below "screenshoot"

Settings

 

But I still believe that someone of you does not have a clue. Post your further "wayne" complaints, the one who rubs you with the trash is happy, that you've been trapped in his troll trap... You won't believe, but that is the trust.  Instead of posting something here in the forum, you should have written a support ticket. Proverb: Do not feed the troll. You are feeding!
