Capt_Oveur posted a topic in Rules, Announcements, and DiscussionThe news of the last wave of cheat bans is causing a lot of misplaced concern among players using legit modpacks from Aslain, Hakabase or ModStation. I think the main reason for this is the cryptic and short ban message that mentions 'illegal mods' only. I am sure the real cheaters complain the loudest, however, I got the impression a number of banned or warned players used illegal apps unwittingly. They may not know what program is the reason for the ban and because of the wording of the message their attention is focused entirely, and mistakenly, on something they got from a mod pack. I know WG has explained many times and many places what they regard as illegal mods, and their definition includes ReShade and other post processors, but for most people a mod is only what they got from a modpack. So when they are told they are using an illegal mod, they think they got it from the modpack and that will actually prevent them from considering what the real issue may be. WG should change the wording of the ban message from 'You have received a first warning for using illegal modifications' to something closer to the EULA, like 'You have received a first warning for using illegal third party programs'. This change would help WG communicate more clearly what they mean.
Anyone can clarify how does the "ban by complaints" system work? It's just 24hrs but during a game, I just wiped a division and they were going on about how "CV is cancer" and all that and within a few minutes before I got a chance to reply, I got a system update that says I've been "banned by complaints" from messaging. I have a faint feeling this entire "ban by complaint" system can be abused by salty people who just mass-false-flag people that just killed them. Maybe there's a more advanced system in place but google is coming up blank about how the system works. Any ideas?
So why does one get chat banned as frequently and as easily as some of my friends and I do? In a game where the average player age is in their 40s... in a game that has a built in mature language filter(which by default is enabled)... in a game which is supposedly based on team play. If you get offended by certain words, leave the filter on. If you can't handle criticism; how did you make it to 40+? If you don't want people to communicate in an online team game, why have a chat at all? I'm GROSSLY offended by the irony ;)
