Hello,

Is there a way to disable map pinging,besides putting everyone in the game on my blacklist ?

I have found an option to disable chat and it says CHAT OFF,but i can still see persistent pinging on the map.

Is there an option to disable this,or any mod for it ?

Thx!

Not in the vanilla game but there may be a mod.

 

Easiest way is to click the ping spam on the left of your screen, that will blacklist the player for that battle.  I do this to anyone pinging the same square more than twice and anyone pinging more than 3 times in total during the countdown.  It results in much quieter matches.

 

If you permanently add them to your blacklist you will soon have a new problem - your blacklist will be full.

Are you sure there are no mods about it ?

Putting them on blacklist in inefficient as the chances of running at the same players are pretty much never. So muting them would be a better option.

But do i really have to mute everyone in the game? Are there any better solutions for this?

For example: Someone plays Scorpion G and pretty much does nothing in the game because he thinks the tank itself will win the game for him because he paid for it and then starts pinging on the map like an idiot,and i am still alive and in battle so i have to suffer his pinging.Finding him in scoreboard and approving the option to mute him can cost me couple of shots at that moment. It's really annoying.

There probably is a mod.

 

You don't have to mute everyone in a game, just the ping spammers.  It would be better if WG fixed the spam protection but hey ho.
