Why won't you sort out the people who keep spamming the forum with complaints all the time??

 

But to be honest. Is the ping spammers such a big deal? All you have to do is ignore them. :deer:

You know, there is this cool function when you right click on a player, you can block him for this battle.

Then you wont see his pings anymore, magic, I know.

Are you doing Control + Right Click?

It's easier than that.

 

Press CTRL and you will get a red X next to the spam.  Just click on the one you want to block.

 

But WG really should have done something about it by now.  Then again if they did it would probably be to disable all map pinging.

Not disputing that, I'd just always thought that bots & actual players were mutually exclusive.  Been a while since I played though.

That involves two things at the same time?  Too much for me. I'll just put up with the pinging...:D

Funny that when people complain about xvm being toxic you never read that there is an option to block chat and block messages outside your friendslist. One problem wargaming has to solve but the mappinging, which is way more annoying than people calling eachother a bot once in 100 games we have to do ourselves

The game is probably way too hard for you if you struggle to mute a player

I rage ping it does nothing for the game but I feel better about it sometimes you on the receiving end of the ping need to think about what you could have done better to prevent being pinged.  But I know that's just me in my own dream world.. usually all i am doing is pointing out you you right there sitting there doing fook all while your team dies around you what the fook are you doing are you so useless you don't have a clue..  That message is travelling out of my mind and body so I can distress and play another game each word is punctuated by a click...  Don't like it ? Mute me or play as a team not as an individual player for you own stat padding purposes...

 

I can mute people how and when I want and will do so for pinging too much, I expect it back in return.

As soon as someone starts pinging during the countdown etc, I block them for the battle, hopefully they will need my help at some stage during the battle too :)

You can tell the difference between productive pinging at the start and jus tpinging areas of interest to the pinger  My pre start pinging is accompanied by "going that way" or "going to yolo arty wait 2 minutes then will go"

at least people know why I am pinging.

"who cares" is a common response.

Yep, I once offered to stick with and help a T95 at the start of a battle and got "stfu" in reply - funny watching him get circle strafed a few minutes later :)

Just Ctrl right click to mute, don't encourage WG to take away more things from the game because of the missuse by the minorty (and it is a minority even if it's every battle thats 1 person from 15 on your team).
