Really WG??? So greedy? Seriously you just spit  to face of all people who need to challenge against team mate braking rules. Why not cancel reporting system in game? It is useless. Permanently??? Whoops... not really. Just struggle with  platoon - team members who just pushed me from bridge for fun. I'm not even try to report it to support, you just show how to treat fair play gamers.  Bravo!

Ironically, support staff don't seem to have recieved any notification that this was taking place. It's been 7 days and I'm still chat banned, despite being eligable for amnesty.

How long ago did you get banned? The amnesty only applies to those banned before 24th March. Bans issued after that date remain.

I think it depends on the content and context of why you were given a chat ban with regard to 'Various legal violations'(whatever they are....death threats, racism....perhaps?)

They do say in the main article that it will start on 'Aug 3rd'(so started) and will take some time to process...as to what 'some time' is, is anyone's guess.

Oh no it gets better than that. Apparently, "Repeating offensive language" doesn't fall into the category for "Insulting players and administrators in the game chat". .... wat. Additionally the support staff closed the ticket after saying this... running away from a discussion which you've lost is a classic move of cowards.
 

Interestingly several of the restrictions that I had recieved prior to being pemanently banned, were erroneously handed out by a certain overzealous... how do you say... "Bosnian wolf" I think is the correct term? This includes the funny time this person chat banned me whilst I was already serving a chat ban for talking in the general chat channel. Ironically, the moderation in general chat was so overzealous that it was often joked that talking in there was a one way ticket to chat restriction.

So, the moral of the story here is 'act as you please because even permanent consequences don't seem to be permanent'

:sceptic:

Banned players should stay banned.

Why?.....would you have acted differently in the past?

If I knew about the consequences then yes, I would.

If the only thing stopping a player from being a @*&$ was a penalty, then they're quite shallow and they have no reason to complain about the actions of others.

Hindsight is always 20-20.

Out of curiosity, how does this relate to my original post?

Hey man,
I checked your profile with the CS team and apparently in your case, even if chat bans are eligible for this amnesty, yours was not. I said it here and mentioned the NA amnesty article that not all eligible bans will be granted the amnesty and some severe cases will be reviewed manually to decide if they're eligible or not.

Hello Erwin, 

That's not the moral of the story. Amnesty is something that exists in real life so why not in games? We're not saying that cheating and insulting players is allowed now and we're bringing back some of your old friends to insult you.

In fact some sever cases will remain banned due to the severe nature of the violation. Unfortunately, we have one live example here.

You're right, some players decided to ignore the warnings and kept their toxic behavior. We hope that they will take the bans more seriously now and learn to enjoy the game and make it more enjoyable to others cause there won't be any warnings from now.
And we're still actively banning cheaters and illegal mod users.

This is before my time in the game, which tanks is he referring to? 

I need to get my sincerity-o-meter checked, as there was not even a flicker, so it must be broken. :teethhappy:

Pre-order tanks bought for the launch of WoT. Specifically the M6A2E1.
