2 ppl reported me (karma - 2) at the end of this match. If any of you are here, can you explain why?

I didn't chat anything in-battle, so definitely not language.

When you lose a match, don't report the hard-carrying top-3!!!

May as well be one of those I sank from the enemy team- then shame on you!

Here's the replay file for what it's worth: https://replayswows.com/replay/download/111130

Hmm. Hard to guess without seeing replay, but a few ideas come to mind.

  • Enemy reported you for killing them.
  • Enemy reported you fort being 'annoying', aka 'good'.
  • Allies reported you for causing team damage/getting in their way if it was just collision damage.
  • Allies reported you for dying because they think you should have played safer.
  • Allies reported you for doing something silly like broadsiding/going off on you own/hunting DD and getting torped etc...
  • Allies reported you because you didn't carry hard enough.
  • Allies reported you because you didn't play the way they think you should have played.
  • Allies reported you for hanging around the back line and sniping.
  • Allies reporting you for kill stealing.
  • Someone reported you because the voices in their head told them to.

The possibilities are endless.

Now, these are all just possibilities based on things I've read/been reported for. I have no idea how you played, so I cannot really comment if any of these apply to you.

You're playing a German BB. Something that many still expect you to brawl regardless of what the current meta is. It doesn't help either when there have been a lot of whinging thread about campers ruining their games.

Other than that, Grygus made the list of what they might be about.

I was very frontline as evidenced by 57k secondaries DMG and 2 CQC achievements. 2 m potential damage. Did everything a German BB should.

Maybe the 2 reports were from those you killed with your Secondaries. I know there are some players who hate Secondaries because they think it requires no skill since it is automatic.

Or maybe your team thought that you didn't push enough as the sole T10 BB or something.

Without a replay nobody knows.

Perhaps they're jealous of your superior skills.

But in all seriousness, reporting and compliment is useless as hell features. Don't let that get to you fam.

Play it your way but not always.

Take it as a compliment that someone actually gave enough of a crap to spend effort on right clicking your username and reporting you.

Being reported does nothing and no one cares about Karma. Being reported more than once in a battle is seen as an honour by some. You managed to either piss off two separate players or piss off one player enough to report you twice. Regardless, I call that a win.

The sooner you lose all of your karma the sooner you stop caring about reports and compliments.

Out of interest how do you view your karma balance?

In port, click on your account name in top left corner.

Karma is that number top right of your name.

The only thing Karma does, is if you get enough, you get extra compliments & reports per day. I think you get +1 at 20, and another +1 at 50. Beyond that, there is no recorded effects... Though @Max_Battle has his own thoughts on the power of “MAKRA” (if this thread is not derailed yet, it will be).

And since karma is 100% dependant on other people, who can report or compliment you for literally any reason (see my list above), most people pay not attention to it, not wanting their personal worth to be at the whims of the internet.

I don’t tend to report people much myself, because people make mistakes (I know I do), and they often recognise those mistakes themselves and learn, and honestly, I don’t know exactly what’s going on with them in them in the battle, nor behind the screen, so I don’t tend to judge (well, I judge, I just don’t tell them).

Yeah, I’d like a system which can actually tell you what you did wrong so you can learn, but relying on random people you meet in battle is not the way to go. If I listened to all the advice from those random people, I’d have uninstalled WoWS by now.

Don’t let the haters get you down. If you really want to know what you did wrong and improve, post a replay in the forums and let the people here give you some tips, there are some smart, skilled players here who are happy to help.

MAKRA GUD AND HOLY!

You downvoted me, stealing my MAKRA and MY SOUL!?

It happens to me allllllllll the time.

Play well, get reported...

Have an average game but do something that basically makes the team win, reported...

Don't push into spawn and actually play the caps, reported...

Sometimes it drives me nuts, like I actually get angry about it. Not because of karma but because of stupidity. Stupidity annoys me, far too much - it's why I generally hate people. But...

If anyone plays well, I'll compliment them (regardless of team)

If anyone does really dumb or toxic stuff, I'll report.

I often do my clans Naval Battles CV attempts, so CVs once a week. That will usually down-vote me in the same balance as the rest of the weeks upvotes not because I'm that bad but because I'm in a CV.

It's a stupid system and I'm at the point now that I want it gone, or at least make the integer disappear and you just get a 'you were complimented for good manners' instead of 'you were complimented'.

@Max_Battle     @LtDan_IceCream

It is possibly too late for both of you ...

I am not an expert in memes but there seems to be a discernable reduction in standard of memes produced by both of you, of late. In recent times ...

Maybe Max's recent lengthy absence has had a negative effect on your meme generation synapses?

Characteristics of good quality feedback.

  • Specific
  • Timely
  • Tied to a goal
  • Actionable
  • Right Language
  • Meaningful
  • Candid

How does Karma score?

Worrying about a number which gives weighting to decent and ridiculous feedback equally seems to be a great recipe for crap mental health.
