It seems wg has gone PC. In as much as I tend to speak my mind, abuse is wrong. However, sometimes public shame is a.means to get players to not do stupid stuff. Take. BB in to a cap. Go off alone with no support and just die, not that this is a team game. It is a cooperation with 12 individuals with a common goal. Win. When you have dds that are behind BBs, or BBs hiding in the back. Cruisers on the 10 or A line. Sometimes you have to call someone a fuxking idiot. But you get chat ban and potentially loose your account. I have north of 7k games and a lot of money invested in the game. Bad play should be punished as much as misbehaving in chat. 4 dds, no one caps. 6 ships in one square. Words never caused a loss. You know what happens when you get offended...nothing. you don't get leprosy. This is a war game. Not my little pony and friends. Put a parental advisory lable and move on. There is the ability to not see what someone says. It is called blacklist. Then you don't have to see. This game causes tempers to flare up. Venting is not such a bad thing.

You state 'sometimes you have to call someone......idiot' - sometimes you've got to expect a chat ban when you do so.

Seems relatively simple to remember. :Smile_amazed:

What's this common goal you speak of, never seen it. There's always several doing their own thing and with the inability to mass communicate you'll never have everyone working together.

 I get frustrated also, but I have my hands full playing my destroyer and keeping an eye on the mini map to actually see what each individual teammate is doing. Sometimes I feel like calling someone out but it turns out they were number one on the leaderboard. I guess I could watch my teammates like  a hawk, but then I would not be playing my own game.  I really don’t see any advantage to being an Adam Henri unless you’re just getting your own frustration out .

This and it seems that the OP got one of those chat bans but he did a good job of not saying that so he avoids the wrath of the mods. Saying something like this "You shouldn't have done that, doing this will work better in the future." will get a far better response although the name and the clan tag probably don't help either.

The common goal in every match is winning.

This is a typical defense used by bullies everywhere. Words matter, but how you say them matters far more...

Calling a team mate an idiot isn't going to inspire them to do any better, or "git gud". All calling someone an idiot(or whatever you prefer) does is cause them to get defensive and ignore any point you might have had. If the team is doing poorly a polite suggestion will work better, and won't result in a chat ban. 

Also, from my experience in war, the "leaders" that stormed around yelling and screaming were abusive idiots that weren't respected by the troops that worked for or with them. The real leaders were the ones that talked to people with respect, and displayed calm professionalism.

When I started playing this game yes but now there are many "I'm here to have fun" types that could care less about winning.

Very much so (although then some can still react negatively). I'll usually keep it to:

1.  'watch out you have no support to help' = a person has gone yolo and is destined to blame his team all match as soon as he dies.

2. 'anyone spotted the radar ship?' = a DD is going into a cap and it doesn't look as though he has an escape route planned and no on has seen one of the radar ships (and is destined to blame his team all match as soon as he dies).

3. 'be careful, that ship has torps' = a ship has gone 1vs 1, you would think he was going to win (he might even win), but then gets tagged by those torps! (and is destined to....well, you know!). :Smile_teethhappy:

 

(Mind you some of those dead man torps are evil!!! :Smile_sceptic:)

So what should your punishment be, given that you have a win rate below 50%?

Trolling we are, yes?   "If you can't something nice, don't say anything at all...." 

We haven't met in game but, if I'm an Idiot, the blocked option is now active.  I don't want stress this game is meant to reduce, yes?!

I agree, people get waaaaaay to offended easily today. its pathetic.:fish_palm: add in the fact they refuse to use the block button and say that people that"offend" them should just be banned instead, just proves they're doing it for attention.  :Smile_sceptic:

You're either a troll or completely blind to your own blatant hypocrisy.  Either way, it's hilarious.

Hey moron, I played on 5D's Bravo team last season, I'm helping a sub-clan this time around. So another can't carry moment in forums now.

So what was the point of your orignal post? To say that you should be able to call people names, or say whatever you want concequence free? That's not how online games work, it's not even how the real world works.

If you're feeling salty yell at your computer like normal person, or take the chat bans that come from acting like a bully.

none of 5d fleets are above us in rank. it would not matter which one you were in. your main fleet is usually a good fight and are usually ranked higher. but you are not carrying anything in clan wars. it is a team game in that context.

perhaps i didnt articulate myself well enough. i am seeing more people get chat banned for anything not just calling out stupid crap. i said abuse is not acceptable. however sometimes a bit of colorful conversation can move someone to join the team such as it may be in randoms

And sometimes it leads to threads like this.

Some people do abuse the report chat function for sure, I've seen people comment they reported a player for a very minor thing. I think the system is useful though, because there are a lot of people that go too far, and should get a warning before a ban hammer comes down from WG.
