As the title says.    

 

I'm not a good player and never will be but I do try to help and find it the biggest irritation in the game when folks aren't team playersFor me, actions or indeed lack of speak much louder than words and whilst I have honestly never reported anyone for chat I report UC and Idle/Bot quite often.

 

As a soldier by trade, I'm not as sensitive as your average civvie and can't remember being offended by words at any time but I do understand that civvies these days, especially your younger ones are affected.  If I report, I point out why and sometimes will go so far as to use phrases such as  'your village called, they want their idiot back' and 'your wheel is turning but your hamster's dead', etc, but I don't use expletives anymore and haven't for months if not years now.  Wheels camping at spawn playing (or not playing) as TDs and generally folks that simply don't move.  At all.  Ever!  For the entire game.  They seem to actively want to aid the other team and my tolerance levels falter which is when I start to type.  Beer is involved as well of course!  Clearly the report system is working as intended but they do come out of the blue and I wouldn't be able to say what triggered the ban specifically.  I blame BREXIT :).

 

I'm on 14 days at the moment so what's your record chat ban? :D

 

Also, what is your coping strategy with idle players?  Perhaps if I get bored of chat bans, I'll try a new strategy so suggestions are welcome.

Never been chat banned in 67k Games almost. And i can 'rage' at people pretty often ;) 

 

Unless you count the time WG chat banned nearly everyone for like an hour by mistake

The past couple of months I've been chatbanned for more time than not. Actually, always around the holidays...that's when it happens most often. I wonder why?

 

Probably had a dozen two-week chatbans so far.

Its interesting, at least to me how they come about.  I mean, I don't care about so called offensive stuff so it would be interesting to see what has been reported.  Not by who of course because of the rules but just to see what it is.  

 

Anyway, nice to hear its not just me.  I'm off back to my 'safe space' :D

There is a HUGE problem and WG is compeltely ignoring it: the additional profanity score system.

For every MINOR future violation you will get a longer ban. So active players will, mathematically be the most punished.

I am niw at 18 days banned...it just makes you puke: because you manage to stay chill for 2 or even 3 months then, in 4 games you get loose and for minor violations for whch whch average 5000 battles s player gets 1 hour chat ban ....you get 18 days. For the same offence.

This is a glithch that wg is not really aware of.

And should really adressed, because on the long run, mathemtically...veteran and active players are pushed out of the game.

I don't taste scabbies humour. With zero battles you say you don't have a ban. I suggest the adminsitrator to remove previous post.

With 18 days ban I take this as an insult.

My special eyes tell me otherwise. :hiding:

 

I only ever recall having a two bans. One was my first post on the forums (for using another term for "Richard") and a ban in-game for TKing (after a bad day with arty, I loaded into a triple-arty game on Mines in my O-Ho and just TKed all three of ours and got the ban).

Well maybe a short forum ban.  To be honest forgot all about that.  :)  Forum mods are so picky.

The Mods will correct me if I am wrong but I suspect that I probably hold the record for most bans and warnings ever.

But Society is to blame

Which post are you talking about?  There is a 500 battle restriction to post in this section of the forum.

 

Or have you fallen for the old 0 battles forum bug?

Happy to say we know nothing about anyone's in game ban history.

 

And I have no intention to become involved in game chat moderating.

Unless I wasn't played while I was banned and missed it, I've never been chatbanned. And, sometimes, I am a little impolite..

I never hewrd of that bug, but WG really should do something to revamp their pronfanity score penalty system.

It get's absurd for dedicwted players to get 18 days for a violation for which begginers get 1 hour ban.

I fear he has.  I shall refrain from calling him a Muppet lest I pick up a forum ban.  :)

Ah, I thought this was about the forum

I'm pleased to say that I have never been banned elsewhere

I've reported a couple of loud mouths using the C U Next Tuesday word.

 

Now, the above word I'm not shy about using in real life but if kids are around or women then that's a no no in my book.  So in game it's the same.

 

The F word I turn a blind eye to,  I just think its someone trying to act big.

 

I would love to know if those reported got a ban though.

 

What what

But there is a highly respected clan named CNUT (after some Viking tribe I believe)
