So, I'm sure anybody who's played recently (and allows PMs) has noticed that the bots are back and advertising their boosting service in PMs. Now, obviously, there's an easy solution to this in just turning off PMs from people off your contact list. That said, after briefly checking their service records and noticing that they don't have any battles, I'm rather curious why wg doesn't have a requirement in place that forces accounts to have a set number of battles before they can send PMs. It seems like a rather simple solution to implement (possibly alongside a driving distance requirement, to prevent them from populating games with afks).

Edit: didn't bother to take a cursory glance at the other threads to determine whether this was redundant, since it is, can a moderator please delete/lock it (not that mods seem to check the forums much, but couldn't hurt to ask).

No, your idea is terrible.

And yes, advertising bots are back. I had less than 10 in like 2 weeks, not a problem at all.

Why is his idea terrible?  Give us 1 valid reason why 0 battles accounts should be able to pm numerous players.
