My son was playing a game this morning while I made him breakfast. He's still learning the game and tried a bad tactic. Probably influenced by watching the team play from the Twister Cup, not realising you can't play that way in pub matches and rush the cap and expect others to cover you as you draw fire. (or however it broke down, I just know he rushed the cap hoping to sneak one in)

 

This is how one of o7's clan members let him know about his poor decision.

 

[Removed as per the suggestion of others. Needless to say it included profanity and poor communication from a member of the mentioned clan]

 

Not exactly the best way to treat others. at the end of the day it's one match out of thousands played, not worth losing your mind over it.  We all have bad maps, we all have 'bad' team mates. It's part of the game.

 

As you can see Triarii and DD contacted him about his poor choice as well, but they were far more civial in their manner of complaining about his bad tactical decision.  

 

at the end of the day the sage old saying 'we're all noobs to someone' comes to mind when treating other fellow tankers. Lets have some understanding.

LOL  I saw him in the morning.  He seemed harmless, he even said good job team.  Wow didn't know he would be like this.

he handed me his tablet, i responded to let him know he's a kid learning. I said I was going to report him but I changed my mind. He did apologize and said it was gaming rage. I get frustration with this game, there just has to be some consideration before you talk to a random player like that though.

Boomer, have you sent this screen shot to the clan commanders?  I would start with a PM to them instead of an open forum post, where you will start much drama, and possibly get a naming and shaming warning slapped on you.

I missed the Y in classy...

 

I'll take the bite, I posted with the intent of making ppl aware of who is out there and hoping that the clan leads would talk to him about his actions

To be fair when I contacted him through my son's account he did apologize for his behaviour.

I didn't know who the clan leads were.

 

I will take the slap, part of my intent was to shame a bit. kinda deserves it IMO. no call for such language for a single game.

Boomer, to reiterate what others have said, you should remove that image now or suffer a point/warning from WG.  We got the message and your back!

 

However, if you are a Boomer Sooner, then I personally don't have your back :trollface:

I respect that he apologized for sure. I have been angry before and contacted bad players. I do try and give them some tips and keep the rage to a minimum. I do not talk like that. I can do better myself and I intend to.

interesting that they would take such a tactic. pointing out poor behaviour is more of the intent to help keep the game clean and fun. I am not posting this in anger but to make some aware of what their behavior can cause. 

But if that's not good form, I will take it down. I have a copy of it if ever requested by O-VIII or anyone else.

I reported this same guy at least twice.

 

The clan lead promised to take care of the problem, but I doubt anything has been done. 

 

Oh well...

It should say both in the game, and I believe they have a recruitment thread on the forums for who to talk to.

If you're okay with the warning, then do as you will, just trying to look out for you.  Good luck.

 

By the way, I'd still reach out to the clan leads...

When I said I would report him, he did say 'that's what multiple accounts are for'  so it likely wouldn't accomplish much

I accept the apology and hope this thread makes others consider before sending mean spirited messages to fellow gamers

Thanks for the advice. I took it. I don't want to be a jerk about the process. I will search out the clan leads in hopes of not punishing the player but asking him to be more understanding and considerate.

No, they sent messages in frustration too but it was more tactful. I responded to them as well.
