Just in a game with a brilliant tirpitz, guy held entire side after our french bb sailed off and left him to escort cv or something, was unable to compliment him as i had used up my daily limit, is there a reason for this daily limit? and would doubling that limit be crazy? 

And whilst typing here is a crazy idea, get rid of crates and award them for when you get a +1 with better stuff and all.

As your personal karma score increases, the number of compliments and/or plays poorly increases. The maximum (I believe) is eleven of each. There is an old forum thread that explains this, though I did not have the time to go dig that up for you.

As for getting better crates when you get complimented, I think that might not be a good idea. I am sure your heart is in the right place with the suggestion, but there are two things (and maybe more?) that I believe make this unworkable. First, this tilts benefits strongly toward more capable players who are more likely to carry a team to a win or do something amazing. And second, sync-drops (people with voice comms clicking "Battle" at the same time) make this easily exploitable.

Respects,

Am

Do you know what the term "exploit" means?:Smile_amazed:

People would simply division into the game then quit division with their friends/alts complement each other and profit....:Smile_facepalm:

Bad idea there. Crates need to stay being awarded on your own contribution. Play good, don't criticize, cuss or rant in chant and the karma fairy will bless you.

Agreed, more positive karma would be good  I often run out.

I don’t think you can compliment or report anyone who was in a doc with you at the start of the match. 

Still, you can synch drop (eg, carrier divs) and have a good chance of seeing your clan in the other side, and pos rep them. 

So, agree on the exploit issue.

I don’t see the harm in having more complements, a lesser number of negative feedbacks probably makes sense

Maybe not remove the crate system, but perhaps augment it with an additional crate for 10 compliments from 10 different players, over a certain number of matches.

Yes this could still be abused but it would make the karma system have a use, and that would concentrate on positive vs negative reinforcement.
