Could we get an option that would see us sent back to port on death? Or could this be modded in?

I think this would help with alot of salt issues.

You cant just hit exit ? and then yes when it asks if you are sure ?

This isn't the point. I'm asking if there's a possibility of adding a feature. Why does this bother you.

Cause its an unneeded feature.  When people want to they can already go back to port.  No point wasting time on something people can already do.

Rage is never going to end. Sending you to port automatically will not change this because your still mad. The next game will surely be the same with new players to abuse. Anger is infinite. Take a break but leave the dog/cat /wife /kids alone.

I think he is referring to others that tie up the chat line with hate speech and nastiness after they get sunk. I know I've done this once or twice but never cussed and tried being somewhat nice in my rant and then afterwards think, that will do nothing so just move along. I am a relatively newer player and the amount of crap spewed on the chat lines is definitely a bit insane, especially after they are dead....the salt flows heavy and rude.

No. A) Many players remain in the battle to help their teams. B) It literally takes an instant to exit the battle on your own. If you can't be mature enough to do it, that's on you, teams shouldn't be hurt by losing players who can still help even if they can't fight anymore.

Actually its not me i'm thinking about but other posters, one specifically who started a thread about raging after the battle and wanting to stop. Got me thinking that this feature wouldn't be so bad. It hurts no one, saves time if one needs to and kills that urge to salt in that just one game where GRRRRRR you were MAD, and then suddenly oh...port right..

This idea hurts no one, so people against it confuse me. Not logical to fight a feature that could be beneficial to some people. After all i'm talking about an OPTION. An option not forced leave lets be clear about this.

Yeah people using the floating cam to call out ships meta style is cool right. Not all of us do that. I don't see that much at all actually. Maybe in a clan but that's still an OPTION to not opt into so it won't affect you.

This guy gets it.

But there's also people who really do need to save time. I'm sure there's people that want to streamline going in and out.

This is a game right?

I get it too I get tired of" are you sure?" Are you really really sure? Are you really really really sure? But leaving because of Rage instant port is of no use. Now if you suggested dead men tell no tales with a chat lock on death. A whole different story.

THERE IS A FEATURE,  mmmmmk?

no one wants there to be an INSTANT BACK TO PORT ON DEATH, because SOME OF US stay in game to help with comms, especially people in a div when one dies and the other is still playing...

 

stop trolling

again there is an option to LEAVE the battle and return to port. so WHY troll this thread with an idea of adding an option to go back to port when you die, when there is one...
I get the idea that this thread is a lame attempt to troll people who will say what most are saying.. there is an option to return to port so you made a 100% non cnstructive post about it...
PLEASE try harder next time. this bait is spoiled rotten

THANK GOD THERE IS AN IGNORE OPTION......
Good day 

Agreed. The fact that some of you guys are getting offended by someone asking for an option is a sign that you take this game way too seriously and need to live some life and relax.

But yeah thankfully for people like you as well ignore exists.

You know what I think would be cool.

if players still in the game could eject dead players. Making a contribution, or just being quiet? Sure, hang out. Spewing salt? buh bye!

What they want is not just the exit to port; it's their ship back for re-use the instant it is sunk.

I can think of a few times a sinking ship has provided a torpedo barrier, so I'd say yeah, I can see a point behind it... but only once the hull has fully submerged.

By the same token, though, one might argue for letting the torps run or the shells fly until the ship is fully under, which would convert quite a few last-survivor wins into mutual kill draws. I have actually seen this happen once; a game in which the last two opposing ships either rammed or otherwise killed each other simultaneously. In other words, LITERALLY EVERYBODY DIED. I forget who got declared the "winner", or how this would be figured out. Probably on points.

Sometimes it’s good to stick around after sinking

Good for who; the guy who spends the rest of the game ranting and raving and then starts telling the other team where your ships are?

More remain to be tremendous pains in the rump; seriously, once you're dead, you're dead and goodbye.

Then those players shouldn't have died and hurt their teams. Maybe it will serve as a motivation to GIT GUD.

I hear what you're saying brother, but .. you shouldn't have died. Dead men tell no tales, so they have no need to chat.

No, this one I disagree with; it gives too much power to irritated players; it either works for everyone, or it doesn't work at all.

Anyone who has played this game for any length of time should know by now that WoW loves the salt; if they didn't they'd axe teamkilling completely.
