Hi All, When people send in screen caps and stuff to try to get people to get banned does Wargamming look at the whole game? Asking because just had a game that had a player throwing, complain in chat, and go after the CVs ( one was me). Saipan and I dropped fighters till we were out and both had 100k game... but he kept at us even when we were trying to tell the team stuff making it hard for our team to communicate. I told the Saipan player i was +1 him because " im sure this inbred reported us". He then says he screen capped it. I shouldn't have said that but holy crap you can only take so much, calling us everything under the sun calling us trash etc, yet we were the reason our team won even dropped fighters on him . So just nervous Wargamming will look at just that and go after me.... when i was just defending myself from the most toxic player I have been around in awhile. Also should I upload my replay of the game or nah? I have spent money on this game so just nervous. Thanks in advnace, I know CVs are a hot topic and as a DD main i feel the heat from the CVs but i play CVs to get credits mostly.
I really like that World of Warships (WoW) has a General chat channel during matches. I like asking questions about the game, commenting on another ship’s camo, offering tactical advise (aka lying to the other team), or just saying “Hi.” to a player I know. When World of Tanks (WoT) removed General chat it removed all of this interaction and simply put… it made the game less fun. I can understand why the Developers did it, they removed the channel in response to noxious conduct in chat. Yes, it eliminated ratting out teammate positions, but from what I’ve seen in both games the vast majority of undesirable conduct in chat is by unhappy dead players. Admittedly, WoW isn’t even approaching the toxicity that WoT was trying to address, but I’m hoping to head off this undesirable possibility by proposing two simultaneous changes to chat during a match: 1) Adding a non-selectable channel. 2) Making player transfer to the channel automatic. Here’s how it works; As soon as your vessel is destroyed you are automatically transferred to the new non-selectable channel. (Call the channel… Davey Jones, Graveyard, Iron Bottom, etc., have a contest to name it, whatever.) All dead players from both teams are automatically moved to this channel, also dead players cannot select any other channel. Since General and Team chat can't be selected, dead players cannot help or hinder players still active. They can cheer, cry, comment, or rage in the cemetery all they want. The only exception would be players in a Division retain voice communications -though I believe this to be moot since most players that group in Divisions use 3rd party voip-. This could also greatly improve the learning curve for players. Everyone could comment, give advice, critique their own or other players maneuvers and tactics, etc. Even after the match has finished. I’m not a proficient techie so I don’t know how much of an added load this is for the servers, but to minimize load a 1-minute timer for channel shut-down could start as soon as the match is finished. Does this seem viable? Is it worth the Developers time to create? If successful could it also be implemented in WoT? Thank you for your time and your comments in advance.
Mahrs posted a topic in General Game DiscussionFor exactly the same reason. A ship that can spot for itself and shoot without in turn being spotted --> no fear of reprisal, no "counterplay" by the ship being engaged. OWSF was bad enough that WG removed it in a heavy handed fashion with far reaching impacts across at least two classes of ship. Rock humping so folks can play WoT, aquatic edition? Hard to see why that would be considered "good to go." By games played, I'm a cruiser guy. I've got several ships with radar, to include Missouri. I am leaning more towards BB at the moment. Radar, as currently implemented, is...ahem...manure. I preface that comment so you understand it's not a DD guy whining, though I do play DD. As a guy with a premium that has radar and took me over a year to acquire with free exp, I'm telling you I would take the straight removal if it got radar out of the game - because if the choice is binary, in or out, in its current state I choose "out."
It seems like every game I take out in Midway is a *crap*show. Everything I do is wrong. Every single person in game is just ripping on me. "Go back to Co-op". "Worthless CV". "You're useless". "/s Thanks for the air cover CV". I never got that much flak ever. They pretty much left me alone in Tier VIII and IX, but all of a sudden I have an off game and I'm satan's lieutenant? Is that kind of toxicity normal for Tier X? Is there any chill? I'm seriously considering turning chat off completely just to try to focus. I know I'm not great at CV. I'm trying. But geez, this is really not making me want to play my favorite ship in the world. -How does one turn off chat anyhow? Figured I might as well figure it out now in case I decide to turn it off.
