It's a form of WoWs bullying. You say something fair or even not so, regardless, if the mix is right on the opposite team(or your own) you get silenced. You can be defending yourself or your actions and get a ban. You can question another player and get a ban.

 

People got so freaked out about trolls that they killed any sort of debate or back and forth on the chat. GJ snowflakes.

I have never been banned and I speak my mind. Of course I don't have 16,189 posts either.

The temptation to troll after being sunk is very strong. I usually wait a few minutes to let the salt settle and see if our team has a chance of winning.

I don't usually contribute to chat when I'm fighting my ship.

Not here. In game, not sure if that matters with your comparison or not.

Pre match, ranked. BB troll tells the DDs to do this, do that. Cap, push and don't die yadada. I give him crapback. I get banned.

 

Pre match.

 

Doesn't matter whether it's before, during or after you died.

Never been banned there either, but then I never say anything to anyone in particular more just general statements.

Remove it completely from game.

 

Just like WoT.

 

Keep some F-keys, all, add some whatever.

 

Snowflakes ruling the in game chat is no better than trolls.

Why do you bother to type in chat when voice comms is so much easier. I don't read chat after the battle starts and leave after the battle, to get another started. All the advice and salt is gone forever. I was told early on to grow a thicker skin and i did by installing Discord. Even if not in same game chatting with friends is by far better than type chat.

Chat can be a useful tool for team communication.

In general chat messages should be short and to the point. e.g. dd behind island C5.

The best way to avoid bans is to remove all adjectives and adverbs from your chat. This will not be 100% effective.

Trolls abound.

It is the majority of communication in game, you can VoIP with yer buds all day long. When it comes to EVERYONE else it's done through the in game chat. Look I get it, the game is based on Divs and people hanging out on TS or whatever the other one is called.

Most people communicate through the in game chat, if they do at all. It's [edited] up when they decide to go after some [edited], me(im an [edited]). Because I pissed them off. I get it, I talk crapand wrong some dude that your eating Doritos with. I get neg'd to death and can't communicate in ranked.

 

It's [edited].

Then let's limit it to F Keys.

 

Because that's what you are essentially saying.

I think in-game chat bans are a good thing. The only chat bans I've seen occur were well-deserved and everyone, on both teams, reported the player for abusive chat behaviour. When this occurred, a notification popped up in the chat box that said player had received a disciplinary penalty and we never head from him again.

You don't see chat bans, there is no identifier. So please explain how the ones you have seen make sense.

Please define abusive chat behavior?

I swear that the last time everyone reported an abusive player there was a notice in the chat box about him receiving a disciplinary penalty. This was several months ago so I don't have the replay anymore. I won't go into exactly what he said but he started, in all chat, with slurs on certain countries and their people and then proceeded to doing the same with various races and then a certain sex. He then finalized his tirade by insulting individual players before just spamming a series of nonsensical curse words. Literally everyone on both teams reported him.

I can feel you reporting players right now, I bet you enjoy it.

 

I never, ever [edited] with people about sex, religion or race. I spent 10 years in the Army. Please. 

 

I do not care about your public service ribbons, I don't need you to tell me how to speak and live. I can tell you like doing it tho.

 

Get rid of the [edited]chat....

I have reported players (and only in-game) about a half-dozen times. Three of these were for extraordinary abusive tirades and three were for "unsportsmanlike behavior" when someone was running around team killing everyone.

BTW, I also served in the US Army for 6 years, was a civilian paramedic for another 10 years, and after that I was a field biologist, hatchery worker, scuba diver, and biology professor. I've killed, skinned, butchered, rendered, packed, ate, or put up as museum specimens, over 25,000 different animals. I've defleshed and prepared the bones of hundreds of rotting carcasses and have had my hands inside torn up humans as well, pinching off bleeders. I've had just about everything that a human can produce sprayed in my face and also have had them shoot at me, stab me, bite, scratch and kick me and generally pummel me all while screaming insults. I'm not exactly a shrinking violet.

I am, however, a "protector of the faith," so to speak. If your behavior is beyond the pale and you are genuinely upsetting people (and not just pseudo-upsetting special snowflakes) then I'm going to tell you to can it. If you don't get the hint, then I'm going to kick your <bleep>.

Wow you are accomplished.

 

Please don't push your values on me, here or in game. You live in the World, we don't all live in yours.

 

I'll wreck you bro....

Tell you what Patrick. Feel free to limit your chats to the F keys. No one will complain unless you spam them.

Don't force us to limit our chat usage to the half dozen useful phrases they provide.

As for pushing values. If I won't stand up for what I believe, how can I expect others to embrace my values? That's the thing about values. You're supposed to value them.

It's funny...no one told you how to speak or live...the funny part being you think anybody GAF about how you speak or live...I thought you started this thread about in game chat...how did you turn that into anybody caring about how you speak or live.

Just because somebody spams chat doesn't mean you have to respond (w/words or actions)...spamming chat w/a bunch of retarded [edited] because somebody says something you don't agree w/is a waste of time...just ignore them...if your so OCD about responding every time somebody says something in chat you don't agree w/that's your problem if they ban you for going off on a tangent while they are trying to use the chat for battle while you're busy crying on it.

Now this is how a chat should go. We finally lost, BTW. It came down to a Bismark and a Kidd. We were ahead in points but the Kidd finally got a torp hit on the Bismark.

Wow nice you have screens of you saying good crap. I mean...

 

I don't mind putting up screens of me saying [edited] up crap.

 

For contrast, maybe?

 

The point, it's way over you [edited]head bud.

Post yourself being abusive in chat all you want. I'm sure the mods would appreciate it.
