darkflame88 posted a topic in General DiscussionsI've noticed over the past weeks larger numbers of players jumping into co-op than there used to be, not including the ususal pink ships that pop in from time to time. No, I'm talking about players coming in from Random because the sea is a little too salty. Now, the problem isn't that that they spam chat, ram other players at the start of the match or even team kill their allies by accident beacuse they didn't look at the minimap. That I don't care about because it happens to everyone, except probably the chat spamming but that can be easily muted. No the problem is players failing to understand how ships work. Or more specifically, turn. There have been too many times in the past few weeks where an ally BB or CA slides alongside my Tirpitz or Yamato and either requests support or informs me that they're going to support me. Now, I don't ask for support in Co-op nor do I offer it becasue in almost every case, the player team doesn't need it. But I digress, the issue is the player slides alongside me so close that I can't turn without either ramming them or beaching myself and in case most people don't know, German BB's don't have reverse, at least not one that works properly. And my match ends because the AI DD's suddenly notice two ships locked together and fire their salvo of torps, leaving both myself and the idiot that doesn't know how ships work to take the whole salvo. or failing that an enemy Minotaur rains down pain on both of us.With me unable to return fire because the idiots bridge is in the way. If you're used to helping others in Random, Clan or Ranked, that's fine, but Co-op is different, capping is optional, the enemy will prioritise ships with torps and most players don't ask for support unless they genuinely need it and definitely do not need to see another BB slide in so close that they can't turn or fire their own guns, both main and secondary. Now I know some might say 'but It's only Co-op, who cares' and to those people I say this. Random is a repugnant swamp filled with mounds of toxic salt and is home to numerous team killers, the same team killers that players in Co-op have to deal with as they sort through their 'punishment'. An hour long timeout in Training or tutorials would be a better option than dumping them into co-op. I find joy in shooting at the AI and not being shot by my own allies or the odd unicum in a Moskva or Stalingrad that rips apart half my team before anyone shoots them. I enjoy the quick games, most matches barely last over 10 mins and I especially like the near silent chat that isn't filled with rascist bullshit and the mindless stupidity of some players. But most of all I enjoy playing where there is no real pressure to win, most players know that the match is a foregone conclusion so there is no need for people to fill the chat with their 'strategies', again Capping is optional unless absolutely needed. It's when other people who predominantly play the other gamemodes prevent Co-op players from playing how they want that it becomes a problem, and planting your BB just off my port side, then matching my speed and preventing me from turning or firing does not help! If you want to play like that, fine, go back to Random or Clan or Ranked and prevent your team/division from playing the game. Just keep your desire to be an utter nuisance out of Co-op. TL;DR: For anyone who tries to play Co-op matches like Random, Clan or Ranked and ruins Co-op players games.
I recently started replaying WoWs again and for the most part everything has been relatively okay. However I'm starting to think that some of the old vitriol is coming back. Namely in the form of Racism and discrimination. I am well aware that it is not allowed nor condoned by WG but is there a way for the chat filter to pick up if a derogatory word is used and penalise the user for it. For the latest example, I just managed to capture it, my team was losing badly, I was left in my Zao defending against a Montana, Hindenburg, Yugumo and another Zao with a Kraken. At the very end of the game a chat message popped up from an allied Montana that got itself sunk about halfway through the game. Is there anyway for WG to at the very least force a chat ban through the chat system itself?
