I have noticed from time to time people I have blacklisted showing upon my team they are still chat blocked (the usual reason I black list someone is because they are toxic in chat) but I thought they weren't supposed to be teamed with me anymore. Just curious

Very long queue times.

It would be the opposite of skill based MM.  Players could manipulated MM by preventing bad players from being on their teams.

That's his point.

But it would get completely out of hand.

Edit:  And CV mains play time would drop.  Along with anyone who played even one game in a CV.  Then there would be bragging about it, counter bans by said players friends.  Clans banning each other.

Mass hysteria.

Of course it would.  It'd be out of hand by the end of the first day or two.

It would be amusing,

If you find train wrecks funny.

The only thing that would slow the train wreck down would be the shear volume of players on the server and how long it would take a single player to add a lot of names of players he didn't want to play with.  And heaven forbid what effect it might have on the port UI having so many names in the black list.  It might cause the port UI to slow to a crawl.

Is there something slower than a crawl.

Because we aren't sprinting now.

People that are toxic in chat are not always poor players so you do want their skill but not their toxicity.

exactly. I could effectively manipulate this to force MM to put me on a team of Super Unicums and CCs, which would break the game.

I was not aware the chat is filtering their messages to us when blacklisted. This is nice to know. What I note is the initial distribution while playing in co-ops those players seems to be placed far away from us on the map most of the time (for example, we are near cap A, they are near B etc).  The yellow signal when appears is useful to note, for paying attention to who is playing with us.

They still can send you messages in port.

Press the X button on the corner of the chat box, if you know the person is from your Blacklist and/or been toxic. If not, take some ss of full conversation and report to support
