I was reported for the first time tonight after this match. Apparently having an insanely awesome match is reason for reporting. I thank both of you for giving me my first in game negs. :Smile_honoring:

Good job on the nice match.  There is no logic to Karma reporting.  It could have been one (or both) of the ships you sunk didn't like it.  It could have been one of your team mates who didn't think you were playing the "right" way.  It could have been someone triggered for God  knows why by something you said in chat.  

Still, nice match.

Thanks, I have been struggling to get a handle on her and hopefully this is the start of good things where her. Yeah, there is no rhyme or reason to karma. I really think that negs should be public along with a written reason for them.

When I was a crappy player, I had up to 20 karma. Then I started placing at the top two or three of the team in games and my karma started going down. I think lots of poor players give the better players negative karma out of jealously. Currently I have 0 karma. I had 1 karma a few days ago but then I placed at the top of my team with 4 kills and lost it.  I've also noticed that you lose karma when you have tier X ships. I think a lot of up-tiered players just hand out negative karma because they are pissed at the matchmaker.

Nah.  I think that they should either get rid of the entire Karma system, or possibly get rid of just the neg's.

It would appear that congratulations are in order regarding your new Aigle also.

Or maybe someone just hates Minotaurs?

Mind you; the last one I saw was in Musashi and I blew it to hell and gone with extreme prejudice...

...revenge enough that; no need for negative karma.

Just add accountability to it. Make both negs and pluses public.

You could also let it be known who gave or took Karma away ... Reason! What game ?

Wouldn’t that be fun to the anti Karma folks

I don't give a flying bleep about making them public.  I just want them GONE.

My first minus karma was from a DD teammate who sank me by firing torps behind me. He complained that it was my fault he turned pink because I should have kept going in a straight line instead of turning.

I had an awesome game in my Akazuki, 150k plus damage, capped, killed 4 ships, and we won by a land slide, looked at karma and was reported twice.  All I know is someone on the other side of the world was really upset. 

The best thing is, I did that.

Until it has an actual reason to be there its just a silly little thing that makes some people feel better because the got to neg you for whatever perceived slight you caused them. I most often lose the few i gain because i will get up and walk away from the computer if someone starts getting [edited] about how im playing. I frankly don't care if its a win or a loss but tell me what i should be doing in your opinion and i'll stop caring completely.

Yea the reporting thing... went from 21 Karma to 6 in short order for no reason other than... who knows , it’s just part of the not working as intended game play and that’s ok .. no care

Without looking on your service page, how do player's know if they've been reported, either positive or negative? Just curious.

If your karma drops it’s a negative if it goes up it’s a positive no way that I’ve seen to know what game it happened or who did it .. it’s kinda lame

Lets have a Good Karma (Positive ) Bad Karma (Negative) separated. Or maybe a negative report has no influence on your karma. 
Only a positive report has an Influence on your Karma situation. Aside from getting rid off it altogether.

I consistently finish in the top 3 and have no issues with karma dropping.

in general, my karma trends up slightly. considering that I rarely use chat, i do get regular neg combined with positive karma.  I take it all as positive  lol.

I'm still a crappy player, but, I don't report people for sinking me.  I report people for being a-holes, or obviously hiding and leeching, or being too careless with torp spreads with friends in the way, or obviously intentionally shoving me out of smoke with their ship.  I sometimes compliment people who sank me, if it was a really good shot, or they really faked me out, or something else like that.
