Getting multiple daily PMs from 0 battle accounts created the same day who are spamming a link to that A****E web site  

 

Why not stop this by requiring new accounts to play 500 battles to send a new PM, no battle restrictions on replying... 

 

Would stop this behavior immediately

Good suggestion!

But half that would suffice as after they started spamming in game 250 they would be almost immediately removed by the players reports.

Once again sending them back to game one to start the process all over again.

I disagree. New players if brought in from fellow players use coms such as Teamspeak or DIscord. While brand new never played the game and no connections to anyone probably wont chat in the first few games. Grinding the first 250 by themselves may not be a bad idea since since they should be prevented from seeing the raging and stupidity in chat for the duration too.

Eh, I disagree, the easiest way for newcomers to learn is conversing with peers/veterans. Disallowing them entirely for even a set duration is a massive hindrance in an online game. I don't know of any successful game who has pulled this off, and for good reason. 

 

It's not like delaying chat capabilities will reduce toxicity, it's just going to serve as an additional thing to drive new players away. "WFT why can't I talk, this is BS" would be a common quitting message.

 

And 250 games is a lot of games and time before you could use in-game comms.

At least these spam massages are not poisionous with lead, prone to blowing up, or made by prisoners. Wait. Maybe they are......
