Greetings Captains!

 

We've sorted out our issues with the forum points, and everyone should now have a clean slate. We'll be switching over to the new policy in a couple of hours - 15:00 Pacific/18:00 Eastern.

 

We've reformatted the Rules page in an effort to make it easier to locate things. There are some additional explanations in the spoilers, but the rules themselves have not changed.

 

http://forum.worldofwarships.com/index.php?/forum-32/announcement-15-forum-rules/

 

Remember that if you disagree with a warning or strike, you can file a support ticket to have it reviewed. All of the moderators have been through training, but we're all human so mistakes are possible.

 

Hope everyone has a good weekend!

I caught my mistake and edited almost immediately, but you had already noticed :teethhappy:

 

Niko on this forum, and GhostPrime on the WoT PC forums have both left early for the day, so I'm posting the same message in multiple places!

Must have left for that BBQ that Paul and Meathead were talking about on the video today :hmm:

Does this mean I'm going to lose my upvotes? I like they. They make me feel like I have friends.

I wouldn't recommend testing the theory.

Don't worry - I recommended someone else for the task.

 

Ahahaha, what if someone actually did try it.

I believe the overall rule set, written for WoT, needs an adjustment for WoWs, as accidental bumping into fellow ships seems more common than in tanks.  This game plays differently than WoT.  Different game play needs different rules.  I believe it needs adjustment for WoWp as well.

 

Still, good on ya for attempting to get rid of the trolls.

Yeah, I do like that they are going over things to make the rules more clear cut and stuff, although there should be a paragraph regarding what happens if trolls try to spam fake "this person needs a strike" via reporting, i know you can only do it 7 times but still.

Just a lil FYI:

 

The ingame report system is NOT part of this. All reports must me submitted via ticket to support. All reports must have PROOF (screenshot/replay/chatlog) of rule violation. All reports will be checked by WG employee, and then a warning/strike will be issued. All warnings/strikes can be appealed. Also, filing false reports gets the reportee warnings/strikes.

I have  been chat banned already. I asked some players in a div to stop using the foul language they were using and reminded them that young children could be playing. I was promptly inundated with racial slurs and abuse. then focus fired by everyone including some team mates. They said stfu and asked me if I have heard of freedom of speech and that I should go and have sex with a wallaby. When I got back to port I had been chat banned!!. I submitted a ticket , but guess what no answer. I don't have a replay cause I forgot to activate it after I installed on a new PC. Please explain what I am to do about this. or do I just accept this flawed system and move on. Also is it possible the WG could have replays as a in game option? This is the second time I have been chat banned now. The first one was well and truly deserved. I did not understand how many times I vented my frustration of my own bad play on others. I would suggest everyone does a quick self check on what you type when your "having a bad day" as I didn't really realise how salty I can get. So my apologies to any I have offended in the past. Please look into something regarding this abuse of a well meaning policy.

I would like to see an new punishment added if a player kills an allied player. The killer should not be able to play any ships for the amount they cost the other player in battle. Example: If the kill happens 5 minutes in then the killer can't play for 15 minutes. Also I would like to know that the player is pink requardless of the amount of hp taken to kill the ships.

I was under the impression that the Chat you are reported for in game, gets a look at by a MOD to see what you said, or didn't say and then the appropriate action is taken...

Seems to me, this is not the case, as you just got a few children hit the report "Misbehavior in chat" option and you just got banned by report....

I think perhaps the system is NOT going to be good for anyone if this is going to happen... just sayin

 

You could then NOT say a word in chat and three people who dont like you report you and BAM!@!!! chatban....

Automated systems do not give strikes for exactly this reason.

TKs are reviewed monthly, and then IF you fall into a category requiring a ban (11% or more games with team damage) THEN you're issued a strike.

I'm expecting automated chat bans to be handled in a similar manner - once you cross a threshold your account is reviewed and IF further action is deemed necessary, a strike will be issued.

 

I wouldn't worry about infrequent automated chat bans.

And yet, all WG has to do is clarify this in a note to the player, and perhaps cause less drama for their game.:teethhappy:

Perhaps the warning did state that it was triggered automatically, and does not constitute a real warning...but knowing WG.....:hmm:
