Hi All,

Like many I don't play this game every day.

So it grips my crapwhen some little crapsends me a PM stating I'm a Bot, Noob, etc. If I apply sound tactical knowledge, then I'm camping

 

Yes, I am still a Noob at this game. BUT, I have been in Armoured Combat as an Armoured Engineer in real life. Faced a real enemy and am glad to have survived. 

 

I have been to war, not gobbed off against some complete stranger behind a keyboard.

 

So PLEASE! Stop the in-game nonsense. It's why I stopped playing the last time.

 

And actually I thought it had gone!

the insult bot/noob is that widespreadly used it has pretty much no meaning anymore, dont pay it much mind, everyone gets those words slinged at them, heck even i still get those fanmails on a daily base being called out for "bot, noob"

 

decent option for you could be to disable pm from non contacts (option should be there i think?), could save some frustration

I shall forward your request on to the 99.99999% of players that don't know this forum exists. In the event my spam doesn't work just turn off the chat and contact from non friends list players.

Stay hidden!

Firstly thank you for your service, and for working to protect our country 

 

Secondly, I'm sorry to say that this toxicity is commonplace in this game (and many others) because people just can't behave themselves and seem to have some type of mental deficiency that leads them to act like idiots. My advice is to disable chat, and personal messages as this will let you have a nice quiet time focusing on the game and not having to read the absolute turd these people spout.

Thank you for your service. You've been in real combat and somebody calling you names in an online game riles you up?

What's that got to do with it? Does having been in combat make you immune to the buttholery of others towards you? Are you supposed to be desensitised to that buttholery because someone's been shooting at you?

Armored engineer - Facing the enemy. You're just exploiting the WG forum "oxymoron" clause aren't you..........:P

 

Also, when you considered such names as Combat_Sapper, 9SqnCherryBeretHero, and 33EoDPogoStickMineDetector............the best you could come up with is LeoSayersWig?

 

I'd say you deserve a medal with that name..........:medal:

Why need C username at all, in launcher or in game or even after? Who the hell cares, some random useless iinfo.

for many it's just screenclutter,

and ui clutter.

anonymized is good but could b better,

Need the option to remove other usernames completely, if some choose to.

Or bring back dog tags as option if username m matters.

Just need to type and model of tank . Who needs username clutter. Simple.

Give more UI options to declutter screen and game.

Mate, 

 

if if you have been in the British Army, then you should be banter proof. Dont be a screaming obvious and let the hordes of millennials and Generation Yeet no-lifes insult you. Man the f up and return fire.

I understand it's part of the initiation ceremony for the RAF Regiment.

 

They have to dress up as Leo Sayer, David Essex or any one of the Bee Gees, and then pretend that they thoroughly enjoy marching around barbed wire for hour after hour.

You can set the chat options so only friends can send you messages.

 

Or you can have a nice conversation with them.  I like to drop in compliments about their maternal parent.

I have a collection of FMT 600's that would confirm that allegation!
