Why bother? WG should put the general chat to rest already.

The reality, is that every person here posts until they get a permanent ban, by legit reasons or otherwise the smallest of offenses (read as - discipline teaching), only to later appeal the ban, and the cycle begins anew.

 

I dislike the new mods, which is very unfortunate, since mods c.2015-2017 were much better. The new mods act almost like press censors.

It's very interesting how some things meet an instant hammer of the mods, while other things which are clearly people just trolling or taking the piss are fine.

 

But for a public forum of an online game it ain't so bad here to be honest.I've been on forums with a lot more nonsense, personal vendetta's and random banhammer strikes.

BigBadVuk and the random bans.

 

Still stupid by WG mods to ban people for using the word 'oxymoron'. The next thing we know, they will ban words like 'idiotype'.

Was that really so?

Yes. Block all chat, block teamchat, block friendly damage. Oh and also make it so friendly tanks go through each other like ghosts instead of actually making contact, that will solve ramming friendly damage problem and pushing! Just turn off everything except shooting to be sure.

 

Make this game sterile arcade shooter appealing to casual players, that's what everyone wants right.

 

Before they turned off enemy chat it was like half of my fun playing this game. Just chatting with enemies sometimes. And I am not talking about giving positions but just smalltalk and sometimes even exchanging tips.

Nope, that's just what i think is right. WG removing the useless general chat which obviously causes more harm than good!

Not everyone plays this game to deal 2345435 damage and earn 453405 experience. Some people just want to have some fun, that includes social aspect which applies to like every online game out there. #bringbackchat

Every time you open up the Gen.Chat. tab, you expose yourself to radiation:

And that is how it ends, almost every single time.

Which also confused me. I never understood how can we use those general chats on any platform or game. I tried asking something on YT live chat once where a streamer had "only" 600 people watching. The speed at which the sentences scrolled. No way to read that or to reply. Same goes for WG gen chat.
What was the use for that thing anyways?

Have you been on the internet for the last 5 years? The toxicity has infected every possible website, forum and game. There is no "social" aspect to internet any more. FFS I saw people being toxic to each other on a forum dedicated to exchanging food recipes where most users are mothers and grandmothers.

 

Wanting to have social interactions on many games and especially WG WOT is like going to a KKK rally and wanting to talk about the current NBA league lineup. Basically you are asking for trouble. :D
