Good move. This should work and something had to be done.

Interesting way to circumvent that problem. Highly effective and creative. Unless we see a flood of AFK players at Tier 1.

 

What is an AFK player?

"Away from Keyboard".

 

Those players that do not spawn in time, or at all.

I agree! 

 

You must have completed 10 battles, and sunk 10 vessels to be able to post.

 

There are so many AFK ships lately.

I'm a bit confused here,  The Forums are getting these spammers?   I thought it was the in game chat channels getting spammed.  If it's the in game chat, what does having a  posting restricting on the forums going to do to prevent spammers in in game chat ?

It would seem that spam bots don't care about the 10 battle rule.

Should add the caveat "Must do minimal damage in a game" for it to count.....:)

Still too easy to make spam bots.

 

 

Make it 25 or 50.

Good move Niko - too many forums are over whelmed with spammers for all kinds of sales, cards or services....

 

At least this way, they will need to actually play battles and the spammers do not waste time on those activities.  They will move on to other forums.  Once again, well done!

That's a great idea - assuming your goal is to make sure that new players who are confused about something and need help have no way to ask questions.

 

I mean, I hate spam bots as much as the next guy, but talk about throwing the baby out with the bathwater...

25 is too much.  I say leave it at 5 and wait a couple of months, see how it goes. If needed make it 10 in PvE.

I guess you missed the part where the "Newcomers" section and the "Support" section were exempt? Those are the places where new players should be asking such questions. 25 or 50 battles isn't too much to ask for access to the other sections of the forum.

It's not working. I'm way over the 10 battles the forum tells me I need to have, but I still can't post..

​I agree as far as Forum Posts go, but being one of the Credit card Message Receivers That should be 100 battles Won Random Only within top 5,and at least one purchase from the premium shop. Now that would stop the credit card spammers dead in their tracks

Captains!

 

Recently we have had a flood of credit card spammers and various other forms of other spamming going on. So we have followed in line with what the forums of our other products have done. We set a minimum battle count before you can post. It is currently set at 5 COMPLETE RANDOM BATTLES ON THE NA SERVER with the exception of the Newcomers and Support sections. This number may come down in the future, but for now this is where it will stay. This shouldn't have an affect on very many of you at all. 

 

If you are a poster with more than 5 random battles on the NA server and you still unable to post, please reach out to me through forum PM so I can look into this. Thanks!!!

I specialize in doing minimal damage, or even no damage, in most battles played lately. i am not alone in this.

 


 

pretty sure I was completely clueless about this game till I had 1k battles completed. but as i am not posting special credit card offers, suppose that's irrelevant.


i'm too old for this $hit. I was too old for it when I was young.

and that was a long time ago. MM sucks and RNG is broken.
