After all this time, WG still hasn't implemented an unlimited blacklist. The problem is you'll hit 1000 in a matter of days after you created your profile.

There is a mod that expands this functionality, but as a stock client player, this isn't a solution for me.

 Maximum number of players on Blacklist 1000

 

But there is a workaround. You need the WoT Assistant app (iPhone/Android) and for the quickest solution I go with MEMU emulator, so basically alt-tab away.
Log into your account - chat - username - blacklist. Viola.

Orzanel [DACUS] has been added to your Blacklist. Chat with the player is blocked; the player's messages are hidden.

Orzanel [DACUS] is not allowed to send you voice messages.

Think in the 7 years i've played i've put about 40 people on my blacklist so it's really not an issue for me at least.

Many people have that issue (hance the mod), some complain also. Looking at tags, i see i'm not the only one.

Well i guess a fragile ego could get use out of that.

Everyone else simply doesn't care enough to blacklist that many people.

It is a free of charge tip, maybe some will have use maybe some won't. I think it it worth sharing.

 

Also this works for chat ban. If you are banned, you can still chat through the app.

to each their own. 

But the irony if someone needing a blacklist extension to fix his chat ban is mind blowing.

Why Orzanel on the black list?

You could just remove some names yourself (the fact is that many of the earliest ones probably don't even play any more) and then stop adding people for any little, inconsequential reason.

It is a hassle tbh, and you need to keep an eye on the list the whole time. It is easier this way, plus when someone gets there it stays there.

If you add everyone that hits you with arty, or even pings the map vs using the temp block... then sure you might use all the 1K spots up on a new account on the first week. But the cap is there as a server-side aspect I'm sure. As if everyone had unlimited space to add anyone, that storage space on the server would be 100x bigger by now.

 

I still only have 245 after 8 years. As petty things don't get on my list.

I'm sure your advice is very helpful for those who have maxed out their blacklist. I just happen to think that people who have done so probably have something wrong with them and the way they interact with people. Perhaps I'm wrong.

 

Edit: I'm not even sure where to find my list but I'd be surprised if I had reached too far into double figures. Does anyone really expect that they'll meet that idiot the blacklisted for some reason back in 2012 in a match today?

I'm really laughing out loud.......what a load of nonsense! :teethhappy:

The problem there is not the other players.:sceptic:

Only used the blacklist for people i really, really don't want to meet again. thinki it has about a dozen on it & I'm sure several of those don't even play anymore...

Would rather see the friendlist extended to the same limit as the blacklist tbh. I'm often at my limit & have to remove folks that haven't played for a long time when adding new folks.

This.

 

I only have 2 ppl on my BL and neither are game related.

 

1 - A player who insists speaking in his own language (doesn't matter which but it's not the one you're probably thinking) and doesn't talk to anyone but himself.

2 - A 46% who accuses WG of manipulating his account.

 

Some people hate the general chat, whereas I do not.
