Hey I get it that other players can be frustrating. Some players though seem to think it's their duty to trash everyone else on the team who isn't as good as they are. Often the players doing the trash talk are actually very good players; perhaps this makes them think they have a right to tell everyone else they stink. We could all turn off chat entirely, but it is good to have for basic communication. 

 

How about WOT being a little more liberal with banning chat access if people complain about provocative communication?

Just tell them to come up with better insults, that usually shuts them up while their brain struggles to come up with one.

Had one last night. Start of match our T49 starts spouting about "we lose" "green nuubs" ect. As I made my fifth kill (last red tank) he starts spamming "ez" "lol". Look at stats at end game and he had 0 spots, 0 assisted damage, 0 kills, and 180 damage. SMH WTH?!?!

Whenever someone says, "EZ" I just hit them with the "like ya mum". Usually shuts them up.

They’re usually the first to die then spam crap chat the rest of the battle. I usually say something like why did you die first?

I’m guessing less than 1% of players will actually read this post...has anyone in WG ever run those numbers?
so chat=off is your best bet.

WG isn’t going to do anything without player complaints...
    Sad, but it is what it is.

I was in a 1v4 in my cromwell, a salty player on my team continuously gave out my position, and I managed to get 3, however the last agent ran away the whole match and tied because of the salty green player

here’s a suggestion. average your HP in damage in game and stop playing the annihilator. then come back and tell us whether the salt has reduced. call it a social experiment.

It took 9 posts before the inevitable stat shaming begins.  On another note, he’s right.  Stop sucking and you’ll catch less vitriol.  Just saying.......

You will pry my Anni from my cold dead hands!

Try to convince me why the current playerbase deserves such a mercy?

OP said "Liberal" which darkens the mood entirely.  When I am on  team after team of of nothing but sub 55%ers for loss after loss, there can be no self control in trash talking.  I mean lets take even one example of why I might scream in chat at a scrub hmmk?  For example, Mines loads up.  I roll up just short of the base of the hill to line up a shot on the first light from red to charge hill.  I am perfectly line up, reticle shrunk and a light comes into view..then BAMMMMMMM some moron on green rams my tank from behind when there is literally a whole map to drive on and knocks me off my 1st shot of the match on what should have been an easy hit.

 

Multiply this kind of idiocy by 5x every match and you might comprehend why people trash talk.  Because people who are 55% and above don't run into green tanks when it's obvious they are lining up or shot.  You want to know why sub 50%er ram people on their team?  Because they think everyone should be moving nonstop or they "must be AFK" even if the green tank obviously just moved to a firing position within the first 30 seconds of the match.

 

You simply can't carry idiots like that even 50% of the time these days in most normal TT tanks unless you are platooned.  So no...there will be no letting up on Annalator spam as well.  If I can make even ONE sub-50%er rage quit this game because they died with a three barreled rotating boomstick looking at them as it shakes it turret back and forth in a "no no no" finger wagging way, then I have just given an Angel it's wings for the day.

If you know you're doing your part to achieve victory, just ignore the trash talk.

If the shoe fits wear it. In other words, if it applies to you take it to heart, and if it doesn't, just ignore it.

it can be arranged. but you make a good point that needs to be addressed. there has to be some carrot in addition to the **** probe. bear that in mind. those folks you are ruthlessly clubbing at tier 7 grow up to be mean and disenchanted at tier X.
