I feel as though this should be addressed.
No matter what you think about 'sticks and stones' or how 'everyone rages anyway', you probably shouldn't be furiously typing expletives and insults at other players. Of course, it is natural for WG to do something about it when it gets out of hand. My guess is that toxic behavior and conduct by the community isn't something WG wants to see on a title they wish to draw more players to.
they are not winning souls by disabling the chat. they had a lof of other options
- disable people like me who rage a lot. fine i can suffer that. actually i was more entertained by the chat that enjoing writing to it. i kinda liked the drama and btt hurt of other players. I would accept individual ban providing i can still chat with clan and platoon mates. WG knows who we are and it would not be to too hard for them to block us all individually. bad decision but not as bad as the one that was taken. bad decision because almost everyone rages. it is not only me face4star. if they ban everyone who been reported for raging it probably would be 60% of player base.
- keep incoming message filter available for everyone. do not want entire chat or dead people chat - turn the filter on for yourself. this is i guess how it might end up. however chances are slim. i agree that dead tanks should not talk to red team but they can still talk to greens unless a green player turned it off using chat filter.
- well and it was the most stupid nuclear option - just disable entire chat. sure it does not requre much brain power to close the chat. no more tickets, no more raging, game is boring - mission accomplished.
