There seems to be a number of tankers who reported you as inactive in battle, when they think you did not play well or obtain enough damage in the game. This has happened to me on several occasions and demonstrates a flaw in the reporting system. I was playing but in one game I was taken out by a kv2 with one shot. In another game I had 1200 damage at tier 6 and in a third game I had 800 damage at tier 5.

 

Have you been reported as inactive in a game while in fact you were active?

Depends. In the first battle you were taken out by the KV2 so you didn't help the team.You have 16,000 battles you should know how to avoid a KV2 by now.  

 

In the other two games, it depends what kind of tank you had and how you played. If you had a KV1S or KV1 and stayed in back snipping, and your team lost, then the inactivity votes are justified, no matter how much damage you had.

It is what it is.   Everyone knows MH is broken.   It’s for snowflakes and trash so they can feel good about themselves.

Several fixes have been proposed / requested to fix Military Honor from day 1.

 

Like in your example, make it impossible to get voted inactive when you actually played. Disable chat votes, when you have not said anything. Disable unsupporting conduct when you actually have top xp, win the game and are last man standing with a mastery badge.

MH is garbage. Ignore it.

you are missing the point. In all three games I was an active player and tried my best.

Correct. Inactivity should be for AFK players, perhaps very passive campers, who sit somewhere out there spinning their turret, doing a shot or two per battle.

I get wiped by KV-2's every now and then, don't sweat it.  MH is a joke, just ignore it.  When someone else looks at your MH, and they see 10-15 inactives and hundreds of upvotes those inactives aren't gonna matter.

A good heavy driver knows how to make shots bounce off their armor, how to use cover while fighting at the front, when to get out there and just take the shot to protect his team, to keep the reds attention focused so his team can flank, and to consistently do damage while all of that happens.

You are missing the point. For AFKs, the software could find them automatically, if WG wanted that. That's not what MH is for. Voting against someone means that this player did not do what he was supposed to do. Perhaps you thought that you did something "active", but clearly your teammates believed that you did not play your role. Snipping from the back with the heavy is not "active". Post the replays if you want us to tell you exactly what you did wrong.

if I do zero damage, I expect downvotes.  So should you

I respect and understand what you are saying but disagree. I think that war games meant for tanks that are AFK. I’m a team player and support stick with the team.

Okay , I’m going to write to war games and get some clarification on , the inactive in battle. I believe it’s for being AFK, and has nothing to do with damage score

"inactive" is subjective.  If you aren't doing damage, you better be spotting.  if you aren't doing those two things, you better be capping in supremecy.  If you have three strikes at this point = downvotes.  It's not up to you, its up to your 6 teammates.  If you see me do zero, give me a red thumb.  I would deserve it

I would not worry about a couple of Inactive reports, especially if your positive comments far out number the inactives.  If they don't, then maybe you need to reevaluate your tactics.  I have over 400 positve comments and only 1 or 2 negatives. We all get them, and yes it pisses me off when it happens.  There is always someone with more mouth than brains. Don't let it get you down

OP, I looked at your stats.  Honestly and no offense intended, but you should worry less about a handful of downvotes and more about getting better.  Complaints fall on deaf ears here

What I dislike is when I get a WARNING from WG because someone did not like my play and gave me "Unsporting Conduct" or multiple Inactives, even though I did the best I could under the cercumstances. Has happened a couple of times, and there is no recourse to correct this response.  I don't think WG does any more that count the number of complaints and issue a warning, no one actually LOOKS at the game play to see if is is actually DESERVED.  Point in fact is I am a decent player, I am courteous to others and am active in games, sometimes too aggresive and get killed early.  Remember: ITS JUST A GAME.

I usually run out of downvotes. They need one just to flag the player as one that you do not want on your team. I apply them when people are just bad.

I will say, after downvoting someone, I do not see them on my team for the remainder of that day.

  I’ve only gotten inactivity down votes when I played a TD and my guys didn’t spot or wanted to play behind me. 

 

  If they can’t do their job I can’t do mine and every time I’ve gotten this vote that’s what it was. Guys are stupid, and voting gives the stupid power.

 

  In fact, most of my downvotes were given to me by the stupid. MH is a den of stupidity for the stupid and only held in high regard by the stupid.
