It still is an offense and you can get sanctioned for doing it. 

 

Report a player with a replay is all it takes. 

 

But if a player disables their battle chat, then they wont know if a, "teammate", revealed their position to the enemy team and so they wont be able to report it!

 

Enabling cross-battle chat is a tremendous mistake!   I likely will not be playing because of this!

do you have a list of tanks and can we see it??  

 

I don't have a list to share. Check back here or stay up to date on the forums for when the next Act is announced. 

 

All-chat is only here for limited time and players are still able to be sanctioned for violating rules.

Reporting player positions was a reportable offense before the general chat was removed. Honestly I love using the general chat to say Hi to my friends on the enemy team. It was fun to "o7" clan mates I was fighting against.

 

In arty I loved taunting the enemy team after I would shoot them. My name + arty = much rage. Or when arty would shoot me they would taught me, "I brought the rain." Honestly it was a feature I truly enjoyed.

 

Players like you, who enjoy griefing others, spreading toxicity, are exactly why cross-battle chat was disabled.

I've never had General Chat in battle since I've been here (almost 3 years). Considering the players that make up the majority of my teams, I'm now going to have to account for them adding even more harm than they did previously.  Players who don't understand how this game is more chess than checkers won't be able to resist the temptation to play spoiler at the end of battles when I am usually ALONE on the battlefield.  

 

Loss BUT at least I can waste my own time AFTER the battle to file a report on someone that may or may not receive some sort of light sanction.  Seems fair.  :sceptic:

 

 

I have Aslains blocking the General Chat in my garage because nothing good comes from that drivel.  However, I understand why it's there because many people need that sort of thing.  However, to give players who like to talk more than play more opportunities to get sidetracked by General Chat in-game is NOT going to do me any favors.  

 

Not looking forward to this distraction.

 

(How about 1 week of skill based matchmaking?)

What stupid truck did you fall from to bring this back ? How about doing something useful and fixing the other problems. You wonder why no one wants to play ? EH ??? think about the EBR .... duh fix it when you hit it it actually takes damage.  LOL bring back a way from a clan member to be on one side or the other to report a position on a arty? thanks idiots. Now I know what days not to play tanks this month.:D:confused:

Although that solves 1 problem, the in-the-middle-of-battle distraction isn't solved - too many folks are going to get distracted by it in my opinion.  But I've never seen it in action, so maybe I'm wrong.

In the Anniversary Store in the video, IT says you can "Purchase" The KV-5, M6A2E1, And the KV-220-2. Do you Purchase it with the coins? Or You actually have to open up You Wallet?

Why would anyone want to purchase a KV-5 with its, "high penetration", and, "deadly", air gun?!

I've been of the controversial opinion that removing allchat actually increased the toxicity level. This seems counterintuitive on its face, of course, so I'll explain.

 

When you remove the ability for teams to talk to each other then, logically, players can only communicate with the people on their team. These are the people that players are going to wind up blaming for failures and snapping at as a result, and if they can't communicate/commiserate with the enemy team, they're going to do that more often. Most people are, in fact, not [edited] who start screaming positional data as soon as they die, so commiseration is much more the order of the day, at least in my experience. Removing allchat certainly won't do anything to stop racism or trolling, either--those people don't care if their audience is 29 people or just the 14 people who are supposed to be their allies.

 

If you run into someone like that? That's what the chat block and blacklist are for. It's true with teamchat only, it'll still be true with allchat. I also don't think, though I'd need confirmation, that chatblocking someone does not remove their chat messages from the replay file, so you can still send that file in to Wargaming for a report.

You can tell that WoT has run out of "ideas" by making a huge deal about the return of general chat. They should just make it a permanent feature in this game again. It was fun having that witty banter back and forth with the enemy team.

KRZYBooP - Rumor was chat banned people were going to be granted amnesty, is this rumor any valid? - Ive been a member of WOT for 9 years.. chat banned for 3 years... would be nice to be able to chat again after being in prison for 3 years...

Anyway, I also don't want to make this entirely about general chat--I'm looking forward to these celebrations! I'm of the opinion that the game has been genuinely improving over the last year or two, and I'm both eager to see that continue and to revisit the prior history--including a lot of years before I ever started playing.

You and I must have very different definitions of what constitutes "witty banter"...

The issue is that I never have chat because of the toxicity. I remember those times when I had to work hard carry teams AND worry about idiots on my team revealing my position to the enemy. I will have turn on the stupid chat again to detect it. Chat is toxic and unpleasant and should be removed

 People can o7 and exchange comments after the game.
