Really? Who? No one who initiated the boycott of Clan Wars was banned, nor were any of the participants. I'm well known for my pro-good gaming views, and I only get chat banned when I am salty in game, same as everyone else. They don't single out those of us who prefer a fun, complex game for special punishment.

As above.  Just wondering.

They can create a special place in the forums for CV hatred and repetative posting/echo chambering.  The calls for the downfall of the game and how CV players have mental health issues can reside peacefully in their rightful place.  

Or you can adapt.  The very same people complaining have no problem with BB, CV, or DD divisions obliterating CVs.  Now that deserves credit for adaptation.  My favorite target in any CV game is the red CV.  

And please @Did_I_hurt_U, who was banned for having an opinion?

They modified tiny Tim reticle, not as good as before. Now they are improving the invisibility of boats from air. 

Not sure what else they got planned but hopefully more to come

The online world has toxicity. It does not matter what you do in a game, be it cards or CV or simulation etc.

Just stack reports to support tickets and be done with it, forget about it and move on to the next one.

Well yeah. The question was about carrier toxicity. Deal constructively are be dealt with. Might be frustrating as all get out but we have to conduct ourselves as adults while we learn to deal with carriers and wait to see if any more adjustments are coming. I'm fine with how things are right now after the spotting changes on my DD.

If there is a person who's job is to ban and run off anti CV people, he sucks at his job.

Yeah, before the rework there was no toxicity in WoWs. :Smile_teethhappy:

It was all unicorns, care bears, and smurfs.

Excellent point.  The forums are full of examples.

Right, blame the CV but in reality the CV player is toxic due to the near constant reporting/abuse/flaming because people yolo around and get blapped by a DD.

Honestly dude, you're not making ANYTHING better but just making more and more people toxic/feel Z-E-R-O pity when they kill people in a CV.

"If they already hate me for the class I play, why bother being nice."

It's a VERY slippery slope man, don't contribute to making it worse. Engage the CV crowd in a legitimate and honest discussion vs "THE CV CROWD IS SO TOXIC REMOVE THEM!"

Since it is the players who are generating the toxicity and not the ship, I don't see it being WG's job to teach people how to not be toxic. If it wasn't CVs, it's DDs. If not DDs, then BBs.

 

There is a reason it is called -self- control, and it doesn't involve looking to others to do what you should be doing.

Go look at any game's forum.  They are all full of happiness where everyone gets along and has civil, rational discussions. :)

WG is trying to make CVs more amiable to players by making them resemble venerable and loved cartoons. Currently they are testing a Mr Magoo version of them.

All I'm saying is German BBs should be represented by Burt the Turtle from those civil defense movies from the 50s.

Every one wants this to be their game, their way, It's a game and it isn't owned by you. If you don't like the game and want to change it, make your own. You could join the team and have a better chance at changing things. @Hapa_Fodder recently published a forum topic for employment opportunities with WG. You can, not play the game, if you don't like it. You can stop spending money until WG relents and makes it how you want. You could alternatively change your attitude and enjoy the game. Then again as the saying goes, "Only The Weather, Changes."

CV toxicity has existed in the game since the beginning, the rework just made it more vocal. I believe, that like many things in this game, Wargaming has given up on trying to improve it and are just trying to ring out more money from the player base.

WG is not banning people for anti CV talk.     Otherwise I wouldn't be here.  Taichunger wouldn't be here. Leerux (or however its spelled) wouldn't be making all his threads.  Elazer wouldn't be here.  There are a lot of anti CV folks active and well on these forums. 

WG bans people from the forums for breaking the forum ToS repeatedly that is it.   I would put down money that @Hapa_Fodder and crew have never temp or perma banned anyone for simply speaking against CVs. 

 

As far as believing whomever why they received a perma bann,   remember that everyone is innocent in jail too.

Nothing will stop the whining short of A:  Removing the class or B: Nerfing them so hard they might as well just remove the class.   And they aren't going to do either.

The only class I even notice they exist are DDs, and I can easily mitigate their influence on me, when I play anything else, I mostly just ignore them.   The only ones still butthurt about them are the people who are overly reliant on concealment.

If we’re looking for serious answers ... personally I feel simply getting rid of the fictional rocket planes would be enough. They are the biggest crock. Torpedo, dive and level bombers were all real. Aircraft firing rockets wasn’t common until the Korean War as far as I know. I can find very little information on wwii usage. I’m sure a CV lover out there will be eager to show me otherwise ... Of course this game is more arcade than reality, but tell that to warspites historically accurate guns and CO and CA historically accurate speed 🤷‍♂️

of course that won’t happen. WG is far too invested at this point. I feel the only option we have is to make noise here and in the game chat. Sorry CV captains but drive something else if you don’t want to get chewed out all the time. 😬🖤
