Please fix that people cant ping the map 1000 times in a battle.

 

You have it fixed for arty so why not for normal tanks. It is a great game but this annoys the  hell out of me.

And no blocking for a battle isnt always an option. And reporting them isnt also, since a chatban doesnt incluse mappinging.

  1. Remove chat entirely.
  2. Add 5 second delay between pings (already have 5 sec delay for regular F3-F8 commands).
  3. Change ping style to the one in Frontline for better pinpointing.
  4. Possibly add short arrows by holding the LMB down and moving to a certain direction.
  5. Add more detailed commands through the radial menu, basically extend the radial menu...I never find the need to use it right now.

6) Allow users to change the audio file of the Ping.

Highly recommend this mod for you. :)

Been using it for a while now and very satisfied. I hate minimap pinging with a passion, even if it is done once... This can limit it to once every 30 seconds per player.

I think this is something WG has to solve and not me installing some mod. Thye have done it for arty where you can not use the commands again and again and again, so why not put that to work for normal tanks also.

Or if that is too much work, just give me the option to disable them completly. hardly use them anyway myself so could very well do without the mapping terror at all

That's too bad, because mods would happily do you. :girl:

Yeah, of course I agree.

But there are so many things that (in my eyes) need to be added to the game which are missing.

It has been suggested about 1000 times in the past but well worth another go.

 

Blocking for the battle is an option but by that time the donkey hole has already annoyed me and it really does not encourage me to play my best.

You probably can through a mod but it's not the sound I have a problem with it's the fact that people can just sit there pinging, it simply should not be able to happen.

You know, I would rather not do it through mods but I think I can make an exception, especially since it's a simple stand alone mod with no XVM or massive mod pack involved.  Plus if enough people install it then WG might actually pay attention.

but making more premium tanks they can sell is way more important ...

That. I was in a dogfight with three other tanks with one of my team, and a SU100M1 who died in the first minute kept spamming the map for 5 minuts. When I am fighting three tanks I do not have the time to block him for the battle and I can say it even got me killed cause I got so annoyed I made some errors. since I died I watched him ping the map at least 300 times in one battle .... that is just rediculess. If arty cant click the map why can other tanks do that ??? That m akes no sense.

I was thinking along the lines of a voice clip using descriptive language of the player's cognitive functions, which is too rude for polite conversation.

 

Ultimately I would like WG to implement the Comm Ban that exists on PS4 which automatically blocks excessive Comms/ Pings, and given how the two versions are borderline copy & paste it would be no hardship to implement on PC.

But it is already in the pc version, just for arties only. When you press T or F8 too much in arty you get a message the the message is blocked for an amount of seconds due to overuse.

That makes matters worse :D PS4 it applies to everyone regardless of their vehicle class, but PC it's Arty only.......................the Gunnery Sgt Hartman quote involving Mickey Mouse springs to mind (what is this Mickey Mouse [censored]!!!), but surprisingly no one has made a video for that quote. :honoring::amazed:

Nah, wrong.

 

If you press any two diffrent commands within 0.5 seconds of eachother, the second one gets blocked for 5 seconds. It's always been that way and for ANY class. Don't believe me? Try it.

 

It happens most often with arty because you can mistakingly aim at the ground or a tank, each having their own command, they can cancel one another if you hit the key at an awkward time.

Arty can't ping the map?  I have not experienced this.

That's the same for any tank, I can't tell two friendlies to fall back for instance.  Which is just another reason that it makes no sense for map pings to be unlimited.

 

Useful commands you have a limit on.  Useless map pings have no limit.
