If you are doing anything in general chat, you get banned. It is only there so the game can get some PG rating, so moderation is completely random. Otherwise, it's probably your own fault.

The offense didn't occur when you were at work. The offense was registered when you made it, the sanction was applied later when you were at work.

Then you farmed enough reports to be reviewed, and they took action after you did stop playing. As you can get chat banned 3 ways. Use general chat, or get noticed by the automatic system. Those are both instant when you are playing. Or when you have been report farming and they review it. Then it don't matter if you are online or not. As for them to do that, you need more then a few reports pr game.

 

If that's the case. No point going to support. As we all know, they can't lift your ban anyway or do anything about it.

Check time zones, yours vs server.

Sanctions are applied later.

To manage to get a chat ban, you normally have to try extra hard to be an (expletive of your choice) !

 

On the bright side, you can enjoy a vacation from the chat nonsense.

The bans are manually reviewed before being applied so can happen when you are not in game.

When the ban or the offence happened?  Could be that support got confused.

I actually found it was rather easy. I brushed up my Polish and Serbian 'compliments' and I got chat banned fairly quickly. Apparently you can wish people all sorts of bad things in English, and I have done so for years, but the moment I started using Polish and Serbian, I got hammered. Deservedly so, I must add, what I said was rude to say the least, but it felt quite good to 'return fire' in a language the intended recipients understood. I sometimes get the feeling my more creative 'compliments' are just not understood. Which is just sad. All that effort for nothing.

It is VERY easy to get a chat ban these days. WG have made it a lot stricter! If you have a single bad game and start trashtalking your team, chances are that is enough for a chat ban, even if nobody reports you. And yeah, it can also take some time before the ban is applied. Just be nice in chat people! :)

Hardly surprising....they didn't used to care much about behaviour in chat....now they do. As has been mentioned, the time you get given my simply be the time your ban was issued, as a specific time makes no real sense if the ban is based on multiple reports. You can also get them if someone raises a ticket with screenshots of something you said in chat, again they may not know exactly when the event took place.

 

Simple answer is learn from it and be more careful about your behaviour these days.

Strange. Almost 2 months and still no chat ban, even though I send wishes that contain the „C“ word to every sky pig that focus me in battle.
