>Aim at T-62A on 1600 HP at 100m range, fully aimed, HESH loaded in Deathstar

>Ally bumps me

>Miss completely

>Enemy T57 Heavy peeks out and clips me on reload

>Break KB

>Find buttons in other side of room

>Assemble KB, lights don't work anymore (Update: Fixed the lights! Good as new. :great: )

>Rage in chat (because...obviously)

 

Next day: Chatbanned

 

EXCUSE ME?!?

 

So I don't have the right to be angry after such an unfortunate series of events? No report about foul language even gets checked to see why there even was foul language? The guy who bumps me, effectively killing me indirectly with the enemy T57 gets away unscathed while my right to speak in chat, even with my own friends, gets revoked??

 

Unbelievable...

 


Okay let me tell you something about the chatban system, something that really shouldn't be a thing - You can't even write in your own clan chat, talk with your friends in private messages, or use platoon chat while chatbanned. Is that really a good idea, WG? Do you understand that I'll never get in a fight with the people I've known for years? So why can't I speak to them then?

 

Or is there some technical limitation with the chat system that stops you from not banning text messages in different areas of the game?...

 

If there is, you should work on that...Like, now. Not "Soon™", not next year. Now.

 


Excuse me, Imma go work on my anger management now. I'm not completely innocent and I'm aware of it, but the chatban system is just ridiculous.

 

Edit: Well apparently I'm not the only one who received a 7-day chatban since yesterday so I dunno what exactly happened but something definitely ain't right... :sceptic:

Here's the deal, if you want to rage, do it in private.

 

We all get the bad days & teams. If you rage, accept possible consequences, especially when using insults in the rage. And yes, the chat ban is meant to be a punishment. If you misbehave (and raging is not good behaviour) accept the possible consequences that come with it. Being chatbanned does mean a full total absence of being able to chat. It's a punishment. behave next time you get a combination of dumb teammates & skillfull/lucky reds & you won't get a chatban.

How do you even manage that? I'm sure I've had plenty more tangents than that and while I'm not in the deep end with what I'm saying, it's still certainly not nice stuff and I haven't received a chatban once. :confused:

Hm, it's kinda funny, I'd just gotten a chatban as well... unsure what the comments was that they apparently considered in such violation of the rules but it's an amusing coincidence, perhaps they had some very eager people working yesterday? Currently trying to figure out what it actually was that got me the punishment but support is being very... unsupportive :child:

I once got a chat ban for writing "The mods here are *****-worthy" in the all chat.

 

What is bad about calling mods worth of 5 stars, ie the best possible?

 

Edit: I wrote the asterisks myself, wasn't cursing in the chat.

I think I got chatbanned after going on a rant about WG employees who designed Minsk while ingame playing Minsk.

 

You can say the most F:edup toxic crapto anyone else but once you say something about WG employees you screwed, interesting.

Of course you have the right to be angry but it'll come down to what you said, not the extenuating circumstances which only you are aware of. "He bumped me" is not sufficient reason to go on a sweary crusade, for example, and it's puerile to expect Support to review the replay and look for such triggers.

How do you know? Did you send him a PM to ask whether he was also chat-bann... ah, right, I can see the problem there. :unsure:

 

But the question stands - how do you know the guy who bumped you got away unscathed? Unless you're actually referring to the T57 getting away unscathed, in which case I misread that line.

That's generally what the term chat-ban means, being banned from chat. Being unable to communicate with a bunch of randoms, many of whom will ignore you anyway, isn't much of a deterrent if you can continue chatting with your friends and clan mates. Use Discord - it has a great in-game overlay and you can use text and voice channels.
 
I wouldn't be surprised if the mods are cracking down on bad language. The game's not age-restricted to 18+ and with the run-up to Christmas and a bunch of rental premium tanks in higher tier battles, they wouldn't want ickle kiddies who'd like a pixel tank from Santa to be put off by some salty idiot calling them names.
 
I'd be more concerned that getting your pixel tank shot caused you to break your keyboard. That's a clue to the level of rage you must have shared in chat and is a pretty good indication that you probably should step away from the computer occasionally.

So I don't have the right to be angry

Being angry and raging in the chat are two entirely different things.

But yes, you have every right to be angry. But that doesn't allow you to act like spoiled brat that throws around his verbal diapers.

How does that matter? If you are too immature to keep your feelings together, you deserve to get banned even though you didn't start it.

He bumped into you. That's it. Again: How does that matter?

 

Block Quote

Because you called for it by raging around.

No, not at all. A simple case of cause and effect.

Because you broke the game rules.

Since you are at it... try to grow up and fix your broken moral compass, too. If you do that, all those problems will go away.

Still no and no.

If you can't do the time don't do the crime.

 

Also, breaking a keyboard over a computer game not going your way is just dumb.

It was the result of a combination of two stupid situations I found myself in because of one guy who doesn't realize driving behind a sidescraping Deathstar is not a good idea.

 

If it was just the bump, or just the T57 clipping me, I'd brush it off, but this guy broke the last straw...

It's not over a game, it's over a person.

 

I wouldn't be bothered if it was a bot...

 

Fun fact, stupidity/lack of common sense triggers me. More than anything else. Games alone don't.
