So.. I’ve been having some recent battles with salty players falsely reporting me. For example I’ve had matches where I’ve stolen kills and been reported for unsporting conduct or maybe I’ve had a match where I’ve been careful in battle ( hiding from multiple enemy tanks ) and I get a inactive report. 

 

Can you guys please change the way the report system is so people can stop abusing it when they get salty! I’ve been temporarily banned because I received 2 inactive reports from 2 salty players because I was hiding from 3 enemy tanks.. ( 1 v 3 ), these reports are getting out of hand ! I am actually worried about my account because people randomly report just because they can !

Stay the same.   It ain’t perfect but if you are looking for perfect then I would seek another planet.   Here, we have kids, morons, saddos, misanthropes and all sorts which make it impossible to devise a system that would be proof against abuse.   MH works well enough.   I speak us one who gets the odd warning - never justified - but so what?

Lol I been banned for the first time in 5 years. 

I was in my t95 and asked all team to die after me.

And off they went behind the great horizon and I could see the puff of smoke each time one died. 

None of them hit the 1000 damage and I went into the 3K, solo v 7

 

one t49 of my fellow mates came to my PM box insulting me and as I was going to reply, banned. 

Boom. First ban in 5 years. 

 


Read my guides there

I want just that, and replay files.

 It’s the first time I’ve been banned in 5 years, I literally didn’t say anything in chat and got reported by 2 people ! Something has to change, if people keep abusing the power then innocent people will get perma ban if that’s a possibility.

don’t worry, perms ban is unheard of, and certainly unheard of for some chat insults.

 

And if you were banned, it is related to several games in a short period of time. Doesn’t mean that this was deserved reports of course. 

 

Personally I enjoyed my banned time. It was somewhat relaxing to know i can’t yell at my mates before game start (LEFT! LEFT ! UP ! NOTOWN! etc...) and after game (OMG! Base ! GO C! MOVE! etc...) I just did mah job and tried to adapt to the noob flow. If they had decided on town, well I had to try to make it work. It was interesting.

One of the key issues with the MH system is that you can't tell which game generated the downvote. You can guess, but there is a delay between reporting and implementation. This, as far as I can see, is to prevent people figuring out who gave them the downvotes and potentially seeking them out on PM. That, insofar as it goes, is a Good Thing. However, it becomes a problem because, firstly, people assume that the warning /penalty comes from the game immediately preceeding, as the OP has. Secondly, how is anyone supposed to learn anything from a sanction when they are given no indication of the "crime" for which they are being sanctioned? That's the key failing of the system as it stands, and it's insurmountable.

Im pretty sure that the person RECEIVING the downvote gets informed right away. Its only the player GIVING a downvote that will have a delay before he gets the "a warning/penalty has been imposed" message.

You can get reported for anything, if at least two players cry. But, except for a 1 hour ban (at least you can cook a nice dinner), it’s main purpose is to vent hormones. It doesn’t really matter.

You might be right. I don't get enough to care/notice.

I sometimes think this is just a random notification to make you feel like your votes actually make a difference...

I guess so...but in my case its wasted as I dont downvote players.

I think I would downvote those players that troll by blocking etc...but just because someone didnt play well...no reason to downvote.

It is a rubbish and discredited system, but I’ve not seen a viable alternative...

Much like Churchill said “Many forms of Government have been tried, and will be tried in this world of sin and woe. No one pretends that democracy is perfect or all-wise. Indeed it has been said that democracy is the worst form of Government except for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.…”

MH is similar, but what else is available?

Empros is recruiting! Message me in game to apply.

It needs change definitely. I've got a clanmate who got reported for carrying the game to my utmost anger and surprise. However, MH might be the only efficient method to save manpower from reviewing all the reports sent by players. Unless Wargaming could hire enough employees to review every single complaint, I doubt something could be done about it.

I am no computer programming expert, but could something be worked out automatically from what you actually do in game ?

This might be correct, but recently I seem to have so many more notifications.....significantly more that the few downvotes I have done,...maybe WG have changed something!

Thinking back over the last few days since the last update, I seem to think that some days/every day I am getting half a dozen notifications.....and I definitely haven't used that number of downvotes!

They could easy make Provocative Communication not count if you have chat off and/or dont use any chat in-game...

Although, Chat one is quite hard as there are so many ways to disguise swear words and as you can see it has negative side effects, 55 & 5.5 flagged as look like SS or part of a s s but if your talking about donkeys whats wrong with a s s ;)

Inactivity you could programme something but would be easily gamed, eg have to fire 3 shots and move 250m, easily gamed and also false positives if you take up a sniping position in a td, fire, get spotted and wasted on your re-load..

etc etc

what we have is probably the least worst option although they should make 2 platoon votes only count as 1 vote so you need a platoon plus at least 1 other player or toon to downvote for it to count...

lol ditto I try to be as creative as possible in my swearing and the weeks chat ban I’ve had was worth it, the nab needed words after his attempt to harrass me, and it was a nice break...

I’m amazed I’ve not had more...
