At least once a game, and almost always in the tier 10 games, someone dead or probably deserving to die is going to get upset and look for someone to blame, so they spam the minimap with pings about 10 to 50 times to try and annoy and distract and get "revenge" on their teamates for what they feel are perfectly justified reasons, all it does is train people to ignore multiple minimap pings, turn off their battle chat, and generally leads to a worse gameplay experience for everyone, reporting these people doesn't seem to do anything given how often it happens or maybe there's just so many, this problem could be solved by only allowing a person 3 consecutive pings within 30 sec or 1 ping every 5 seconds, I can't even remember I time i need to ping more than 3 times quickly.

Nope I won't stop spamming the minimap, it has won me many games. Sometimes it takes 100 pings for a teammate to realize theres an enemy ten feet away from him...

there is always those few that think, that constant clicking actually helps. when that happens in a game with me, i just ignore it, and continue on with what im doing. all your doing is creating a loss for your team. and as it seems, your not a team player anyways. and it also makes you look, foolish and childish when you do.

I will help a team-mate whenever I can.

Unless they ping spam.

Then I'll blacklist em and actively go away from them.

there's a great mod for this

basically any more than 2 pings in same place get blocked

really makes the game more enjoyable

shame WG can't incorporate it

 

course it will block your own spam from you as well ;)

I have used the mod to block it and it does work great, of course that means you can't claim you play vanilla any more. Lately I just use the in game block. I block anyone who starts to spam messages at the start of the game while waiting for the battle to start. Anyone who spams during the game also gets blocked as soon as battle pressure allows it. It never ceases to amaze me the chutzpa of players who think they have any authority to direct how other players should be playing THEIR game. Then again I see he same arrogance displayed on the forum all the time.

Good one zarg12.

Question of the day would seem to be why WG can't (won't) implement something as simple as this in their own game. Obviously it should not be a mod but part of the vanilla client.


 

Someone @ WG, a long time ago, realised in game voice chat wouldn't work across teams, mainly due to screamers no doubt. Map spamming is the typed equivalent of screamers. They make the entire concept of chat unusable until they're either silenced or go away.


 

Its only dead tanks doing it most times anyway. Who else has the time to map spam if they're still fighting?

Sad thing to realize is that most of the now added functionalities in the game were all mods. Custom sixth sense, minimap circles and lines, increased zooms, hitlogs, etc.

Btw, console WoT has cross team voice chat iirc

I know. Its been really great to be able to lose so many mods, having had them implemented into the client.

 

It was the screaming 13 year olds that made me let my console rot.

I just tried this mod and it works, copy and paste the link into every games general chat at start and put an end to game spamming:

 

"Google, Elkano's minimap ping spam blocker"

 

"This modification will block minimap ping spam by enforcing certain restrictions:

Within a given timeframe (10 seconds by default) a player can only create a given number (3 by default) minimap pings to different and a single ping to an individual cell. Further pings will be noted and keep that player blocked."

Well now. Spamming this every match is kind of an oxymoron.
