He can’t message you and you don’t see his messages. That’s about all that matters.

^This^.

For the OP the problem obviously is that this includes team chat. So if he's black listed from a previous battle you won't see his chat in a following battle. However, if you blacklisted him for obnoxious comments then who cares. But if you blacklisted him for being afk or some other reason then you might want to reconsider that decision.

Meh. I don't mind school yard trash talk. My Blacklist is reserved for only the elite few that are appallingly toxic or repulsive. I bet I have a dozen or less that have distinguished themselves to such a high standard.

same here, if people are really toxic in chat, or they pm me with insults, I blacklist them

Is there a limit to how many can go on blacklist before a crash, etc?  Asking for a friend.

You CAN use it to monitor if someone is in a match or not.  So if you see them go from no status to in battle, wait like 3-4 min and you should be safe from seeing them in battle. 

It will also put an icon next to their name in the battle so you can see who you had previously blacklisted.  Its a decent tracking utility in that regard.  If I log into a battle and I see someone i previously blacklisted I'll usually avoid them in battle because they're on my list for poor play or teamkilling, etc.

This is what I use it for.  Could care less about their chat, but that orange icon gives me a heads up on the team lists for players to avoid on my team or a prime target on the red team.

I'm curious -- does the chat window somehow indicate that they've been blacklisted, or it simply looks like the other person isn't responding?

Hah yeah.  I  like that qualification of the "elite" few . I believe I have 1 blacklisted in game and 1 ignored on the forums. Its pretty tough to meet any standard that deserves such a thing from me.

I believe I tested this with a friend 4 years or so ago and it just looked like the person was not responding.  Which is the better option in my opinion. As otherwise it encourage particularly insistent individuals to create new accounts to continue the spam.

The blacklist function is also used (by me, at least) for people who just message constantly...not just the automatic messages such as "get back" but who post their own "unique" messages constantly...not necessarily toxic or repulsive, but just clogging the message "queue"

There is an indication for blacklisted players in the team list (a small orange text box) ... you won't see anything about/from them in the chat window.

I have issues with the human race so my black list is longer than my friends list. 

If only I wanted to  talk to people. 

 

This does not count. :P

I don't think that's true. Pretty sure it just blocks port messages

I don't mind a little chat, or even a little trash talk done right etc. However, incredibly toxic players are blacklisted and thats the end of them.

I do generally run with chat disabled unless in clan battle. Its for my own good.

Once in a blue moon you run with a team thats really good all around. Motivating. However the really toxic players stay on blacklist.

It blocks all messages from the person that was blacklisted, including battle chat.

What does the game do when you blacklist another player?

You can't message each other AND when you enter a match and they are in it, a little orange chatbox appears on the left corner by their name.

I blacklist people for sucking and throwing games, so when I see one of those little orange boxes, I know I am seeing a player who is not one I have to worry about/have to carry, depending.

I'll try it out again, but in the past I remember still seeing battle chat from blacklisted players. There's a separate command to block in battle messages from a user, so I don't think blacklisting alone would do it.

Let me know because I thought we tested that years ago and it worked. I very rarely blacklist anyone but the few that I have I've never gotten any messages from or seen during a match.

Nope, you do not see any chat from them in game.
