So - three out of six games today, I have been trolled by very low rated players.  Pushed out of position, rammed off a cliff, pushed into enemy line of fire and just generally annoyed.

 

When asked in PM after the game, two of them responded.

 

1) I am bored and I hate players like you

2) You should have been attacking, and you were in my spot

 

Now, I really enjoy this game and normally won't hear a word against it ... but this has seriously annoyed me.  I'm assuming it's a combination of rule change and school holidays, but I bet it's an unforeseen side effect of the new release.  Hopefully, WG will see the issue and revert to the original team damage mechanism.

daycare level of game design

previously there was nice system of expiring of team damage, you could do some crap and kill someone from time to time and get blue but this is worse.

you can troll much more in this meta...i do....

I don't have that experience and I really don't believe what you stated here. And the teamdamage never helped in such situation as people just hope you do teamdamage and punish yourself with credit lose or even to ban yourself.

Do they know you from the forum? Have you checked the thread?

Obviously not, they didn't appear as Forum members.  And, are you trying to tell me that you think forum members are so tiny minded that they'd throw a game by taking two players out of their own team, just to spite someone?  Surely even YOU aren't that small minded.

I don't actually care whether you believe the truth or not.  I've had more trolling on the field in one day than I have in the previous 3 months.  It has to be due to the mech change.  I just don't think it was a good idea.  How about you debate the issue than damn the poster?

We said this would happen when FF was removed, WG said to raise tickets so I suggest that's what you do.  Do tell us what level of response you get (without breaking forum rules of course).

I suppose it's a fine line between being famous and infamous. With their infamy they may have thought that taking you out actually raised their chances of winning? I guess you won't have a replay of course?

Tickets? lol... WG have never ever cared about any ticket, nor will they ever do.

It's still possible to manually report people with a replay and timestamp and have them "punished" although one can expect costumer support to have a lot of these bans to dish out in a short while. The naivety and general lack of foresight with this change is textbook WG.

That's a completely out of left field, baseless accusation to throw at anyone.

Not saying it doesn't happen, but I can imagine why people get frustrated because of others. For instance that image of the 2 Defenders in the corner of Pilsen, in another thread yesterday. I would just like to see what happened before OP got pushed out.

Dear AXIS,

 

Our beloved Huzul merely has bad luck with his teams, in a tank that does admittedly perform below average.

However, if you are so obsessed with rules, and policing them on behalf of moderation (which I might say does an excellent job performing that on their own), you may want to note that the forum rules specifically mention 'naming and shaming', as well as 'accusing others of trolling'.

 

I really doubt you have any proof, other than a 'gut feeling' - which may very well be the start of a case of the runs. Head for the bathroom at your earliest convinience.

 

Best regards,

Kuba, -UM Quality Assurance Officer
