I think we all know how bad the salt is in this game. You can pretty much count on it every battle. While you can turn the chat off, you might miss useful calls. That's why I think that it'd be a great idea for WG to add a new option to the chat selector. It would be called "Only Preprogrammed Commands" or something along those lines. That would limit the chat to only those commands, i.e., Help! or Attack! It would be a great balance between cutting out the abuse and getting strategic information. Who else thinks this would be a great idea?

That would be great, actually. Sometimes people get lost in an organized push so I'm assuming they have chat off and can't see the "Attack!" so they lag behind.

Uh this is already in the game. I've switched to it on occasion but I like throwing friends the ole o7 (or throwing salt when I need to and yes, it's a need).

 

Just turn chat off. You'll still have access to commands. You can also only see said commands. Oh and you'll be able to see and respond to platoon chat if you're in one. It even says so in the description if you read carefully.

Salt brings joy if it's from the enemy team, and the reverse is true if on your team. I tend to not read chat since I focus on gameplay but I just take a quick glance at it to see what was being said in chat (I guess watching stuff from a language you don't understand and having to read while watching trained me for this lol). Still is a joy for me even if it were my teammates lol

you mean like the hold command 30 secs into the battle, when everyone is still at spawn.  Follow by help . then negative all from the same Lowe?

If this is true I'll have to try that.

Gitting gud does cure many ills, or so I’ve been told.

 

About salt. I’ve known a half dozen murderers, but only witnessed one. Two salty guys, one shotgun, and a real long prison sentence. I’ve got a temper but that sure convinced me that salt is bad for your health. Since I also have a big mouth I really try to avoid salt. That is just a real bad habit. Often a short habit too.

I agree with this, as long as you could customize pre-programmed commands a bit further.  I miss the one that showed how many seconds reload you had, and how many shells left you have in the clip for an autoloader.

Under settings/HUD there is  a toggle for reload timer on the pc version. I don’t know about the auto-loader clip though.

There is, but I play on my phone so it’s dam near impossible to see.  And I don’t want to take my eyes of the battle to see who is reloading and for how long.  I have been lobbying for the reload button to be reinstated since they removed it.

Well, never mind then. There already is an option for this, which is great to hear. Thanks for taking the time to respond, anyway!

The timer for my reload is useful when I’ve ducked back under cover. Due to partial color blindness the info on everyone else is not always usable so I just focus on the battle as well. The pc version does have a reload button (I think) but it’s not relevant my current tanks.

I'm telling this since I realized calls in chat are (long story short) pretty much useless. I know also many contributors agree and I'm glad DMG agree too. 

We would need something like 4 commands more or something ?.

And all the useless chatting, insults, childish stuff etc etc would be gone.

If one wanna ask or discuss about stuff it is plenty of forum, discord servers and besides the DM are for these reasons.

I really don't understand WOTB.

Another stuff I will introduce is the option to let people DM only if you allow it, otherwise only friends can do it.

Simply like that.

All the toxicity will be gone for ever.
