Well, Earned My First Ever Chat Ban... Woot?

So, last few days have been pretty toxic in game - people giving nasty insults simply for shooting at them, or ... gasp... not driving your ship as they would drive it. The salt was contagious and I started "firing back" - well all the saltys that starting firing salt got their feelings hurt and complained and the result is a freakin' long [edited]chat ban. I'm not complaining, I shouldn't have returned punches as we know all those that retaliate get punished the most. First time in 30,000 some odd matches combined in WoT and WoWS.. guess it was bound to happen eventually. Still I feel badly for my lack of restraint and take my justice... I will use the freakin' five months of silence as an opportunity to reflect and make sure I dish out all my daily compliments as my "community service". 

That is all. Well, 'cept for this deep thought of the day: Folks if you're gonna throw insults around do you really need to complain when they come back to you?

It does seem like you should get some sort of warning before a five month ban though - this should be interesting, as I do, in fact, mostly use chat for positive reasons. 

 

UPDATE: I'm so new to bans I read the penalty wrong due to euro format for month and day. It's not Sept 9th it's May 9th... so just a few days :Smile_teethhappy:

I have a hard time believing you got *five months* without receiving prior chat warnings/bans. 

Either that, or you said something *especially* egregious... :cap_old:

LOL - read the date wrong as it's using the euro standard of date before month... so it's just a few days... not five months.......... :Smile_teethhappy:

LOL your chat has been interrupted. Like here in the forums it is meaning less.{ Multiple Accounts make easy access }What Player X says so can Player Y, one in the same.

My style if the insults get too toxic is not to insult them back, no that is not enough for them and could only get me in trouble. Instead I get screen shots of the chat and send them in to Wargaming in report ticket and let the moderators enjoy the colorful language I was insulted with.

I have heard the Moderators are never amused by such chat to say the least so the offenders get hammered and I get to sail merrily on my way. But still is a hassle to send in such reports, so I only send them when chat went majorly overboard.

The reports sent into support do help the game get less toxic, some friends and me Dev died to do an experiment in WIT Blitz and report any chat violations that definately were EULA violations, did this over the course of a month and we played heavily. And this was just after Wargaming started up that 5 strike penalty system. Well after that month for the next few months chat greatly improved, the players that loved informing enemy team of allied positions if they did not get their way vanished, and the quality of players improved as well lol. If things get too bad innWiws we might just have to do a little of this and let some of the players that are frequent source of toxicity in chat entire battke vanish or change their ways.

A more reasonable and constructive approach... I will try to adopt it, emphasis on "try".

well the ban reason says "complaints" so  that's just people hitting the "behaves badly in chat" not for specific language.

For automated reports, yes. Submitted reports lead to bans of whatever length WG deems fit for what was said.

No. You always hit back when someone is attacking you. Everyone has the right to defend themselves.

Shouldn't you be running the country and not posting nonsense on a video game website?

I wish I could just turn it off. I get frustrated when the team I am on loses a game we should have won but poor decisions by players cost us the game. I get salty so I wish I could turn off chat to remove the temptation to do so.

Didn't you know you can turn off the chat? I never get salty though.

I don't think you can, I said I wish I could because I do not want to get salty with other people just because I am frustrated.
