I thought long ago there was to be a limit on the number of times a player can click a square on the map?

 

Drives me nuts when players click again and again. Surely by the time someone has clicked a square ten times people get the message. But they go on and on.

 

It's time these people were shot silenced.

You can silence such a person yourself.

Yes, there must be a way to stop this. At times enraged Muppets keep spamming long after they are dead. I usually warn them, report them and if that isn't enough, blacklist them for good. I wouldn't have anything against if the dead could only communicate with the dead and leave those still living the beep alone.

Bit off topic:
One thing I consider as spamming is when a player gets hit by an arty and he automagially tells everyone out how "arty x hit me and is now in reload for xx.xx seconds" or something similar like that. Is there a way to block all these messages? Besides, how isn't this cheating? Maybe the arty wasn't ever spotted and there are more than one. How can you know which one hit you? And how do you know how long does it take for him to reload? Cheat!

(Okay, I don't know how this thing works and which mod causes it as I run pure vanilla build.)

Every battle I must click 50 times to silence 5+ from my teammates its annoying.

Too many ppl ping the map for no reason and more than 10 times in a row.

I already disabled my chat with allies because it's toxic and most of it is swearing and raging or just spam messages that distract me from the actual game. I used to read the battle chat but not anymore and since i disabled it i can focus my attention on the game only and i also feel better.

So probably the best choice is to install a mod to disable the annoying ping-ping-ping sound. WG lacks several options that should enable players to enable or disable certain features. Poor management again, nothing unusual for them.

The ingame hit log and thus the server tells you, which arty hit you. The mod then announces the reload time this type of arty has. It is no countdown.

I can't be bothered to click so many players every game just to do that ****

You disable 1 or 2 and then 2 minutes later another one starts pinging like crazy... this is madness

That's the only way to stop it as of now, there is a spam blocker mod, but mine doesn't seem to be working at the moment, maybe that will get fixed in the future...

The pingspam annoys me  as well. How hard can it be to time out players who ping a square more than 3 times or ping more then 10 times on different squares in a row,

Sure I can blacklist them. But when I'm in the middle of a heated battle I don't have the time/loose all my focus because I need to look him up in the teamlist, press CTRL and select a button in some drop down menu. And it's really really annoying if you hear that pinging sound over and over again. Furthermore it makes all communication with the players that are still alive  impossible. Because lets face it. It's mostly the tryhards that die very quick that pingspam once they're gone. Making it even more unlikely that the remaining players can make up for his screwup.

You don't even need to find their name, just right click on the chat log.

 

Not ideal but it's the best we have for now.

But that doesn't happen in every match. Exaggerating the problem doesn't really help...

Thanks for this. But why does the server tell which arty just took a dump on you, especially if the arty in question hasn't even been spotted? Anyway, I think this info (i.e. name of arty and reload time) being passed on your team mates is unnecessary and thus spam. Hope there was a way to remove it.

For me its every match. I want to remove this ping sound once and for all i don't need it. Its retarded that i must turn my entire volume down because this ping sound is disgusting.

And i dont aim to help with exaggerating... i never asked for your help either so don't feel concerned too much ;)

The game does that for every tank, also unspotted TDs or whatsoever, hitting you. Why that is? I don't know.

I love ruining the battle for players that just ruined mine on purpose ;)

besides that I disagree. in team battles/clan battles it is needed to point a lot on the minimap, so I doubt WG will do something about it.

If the map pinging annoys you, consider taking a break from the game.
