Never seen worse general chat anywhere in any game. It's surprising WG allow such level of social poverty in their product, without monitoring what's going on there.

If you want to lose faith in humanity then just read general chat for 2min. 

There is contradiction in what WG is aspiring to stand for and actual general chat that represents community in game.

While cashing out tons of bucks from expensive virtual tanks, it is hard to believe they can't afford a chat moderator for every server.

Who reads the general chat in the garage, honestly? Nothing useful comes out of it.

 

As for in-game chat, WG relies on players to report others and has a filter in the options menu for profanities. But again, just don't read it.

Words are wind, they can't hurt you unless you actually let them (or if there is truth to them, and in this case it's better to tackle the cause than try and treat the symptom).

Used it once is all my years of gameplay and that was with Homefront to seek equal level players to play that mode. Worked nicely.

well the sensible thing would be to seperate the chat by nations, that would solve a lot of problems.

Just opening General chat should be a bannable offense to be honest.

Last I heard was that the general chat moderators were banning people left, right and centre for daring to say anything at all. :rolleyes:

No,just no,it is the one place you can truly vent your anger which is more than well deserved towards this company.

 

That said we could vote for one,but again when they dish out the do's and don't they get roundly told to feck off

I've played for 8 years on NA server and just about one year on EU and i've never looked at it; if you're that bored click "battle" or go do something else for the love of god.

Most don't even spend 2 min there during their years here. And you see what kind stays for more then 2 min. And I suspect WG don't pay enough to force someone to stare at that chat 8 hours non-stop to monitor it constantly. The admins that are on it, checks up on it now and then, not 24/7. Like most other games do.

Which is why most of us here don't... or at least, most of the ones who ever post about it.

 

I don't think anyone actually knows why general chat exists, perhaps somebody once felt it's something that a game "must have", though a forumite once forwarded the theory that general chat only exists to have an in-game moderated communication channel just in order to meet some kind of requirement that I forgot about... probably the game's age rating or something.

I went there once shortly after i started playing WoT to ask a question. 

So, I joined the chat, said hello and asked my question politely, being new to the game. 

While waiting for a reply, i was reading what was going on and i had the same feeling that i had when i felt the need to satisfy my curiousity what 4chan is all about. And that's only the part that was written in english. 

 

When i repeated my question once, i got flamed for 'spamming', called noob and other colorful metaphors i can't repeat here, so i left. 

 

Like with 4chan, i never felt the urge to go back there again. It's like...Mordor, basically. 

You go there once, you look around talk to some citizens who want to eat you alive and when you're back home you want to ask for a refund from your Thomas Cook travel agency, because it wasn't exactly as advertised. 

 

Lesson for today: one does not simply walk into Mordor and expect to have a good time with Orcs.

Of all the chat features this game had, they keep the most pointless one intact.

 

Can you even disable it like you do with other in game messages?

I’d only use general chat if it could be guaranteed that anyone abusing the rules got an electric feedback shock through their keyboard as punishment for doing it

Just don't go into General chat, problem solved and brain cells saved.

It's there to keep up the chat ban quota.
