Add more useful chat macros to the existing ones as well as allowing chat banned players to use them. No idea how many times I lose due to being unable to use them with these absolute [edited]bots we call players on my team

This game fucking sucks

Its not about the number, per se, just an adequate amount to get the point across

Far be it from me to suggest the obvious, but if you did not get yourself chat banned then you would have extensive use of the keyboard were you could create as many chat macros as your heart desired.

You know, this would actually be a valid rebuttal if you had the stats to back up your comment, but people like you are the reason I'm chat banned

This comment shows why you are chat banned. You can't think before you speak.

another subpar player hardly 1800 wn8 if that. my point was for chat banned players to have the ability to use chat macros, as they do in other games, overwatch for example. clearly your reading comprehension is as good as your ability to play

I agree on adding more chat macros or even being able to customize it. It's a good idea.

 

As for the being chat banned and not being able to use it, shouldn't be a problem for us common plebs :trollface: That's your reward for being supportive I suppose, as evident by your humble tone.


В бой!

I am deeply honoured that you have taken the time to look up my stats, after 930 posts, this is the first time I have been stat shamed. I am not sure wether to feel vindicated or chastised.

I get the feeling that your self control is extremely limited and so further chat bans shall ensue until you are permanently chat banned, then you will leave the game in disgust and anger over the “cupcakes” that run WG but we will have one less toxic player to deal with and the community will be better for it. 

Should I say my goodbyes now or wait?

  Nubs don’t use chat except to spam, “Hold Position!” So they can justify camping.

 

  We don’t need a bunch of useless stuff that’s gonna be ignored

Nice generalization, even if it may only be applicable to noobs. Regardless, there's definitely a correlation between being able to use chat efficiently and ability to win, even with macros. After perm chat ban and same play style, stats have dropped significantly because there is no actual way to make callouts, whether through macros (i.e. targeting) or actually typing. You may choose to ignore it but some people don't and that's why some are able to win more than others

You may be able to do it, but someone chat banned can't. You can't use macros at all which is stupid

I think you have misdirected what is a good idea or not. Keeping toxic rage mongers out of chat, macros, and short cuts is a good idea, getting yourself permanently chat banned is not a good idea.

Another subpar [edited]trying to tell me what’s right and wrong. Notice how everyone saying its a bad idea is <1500 wn8, the one person above it says it’s a good idea . Ever stop to realize maybe people like you, not you specifically, but underperforming players are the cause for rage and toxicity? If you can hardly perform at a below average level who are you to say that people who perform above average shouldn’t be able to assist the team through the means of macros and the sort

I think there should be more chat short cuts, but I don't think chat banned players should be allowed to use them.
