Dear top tier heavy that got no kills and 380 damage. You charged alone, you died. Why you pingged my td (3 kills 4k damage) the rest of the match I don't know.

I hope you learned something while pinging the map over and over. 

Somehow I doubt you did. :facepalm:

I would be ok with a couple of pings if it was good info (enemy position, shot direction etc) the same way your spotted targets stay lit for a couple extra seconds. Five minutes of useless pings however....

Only players alive should have an ability to ping the map.  This (If player = dead then ping button = exit ) would be easy to implement into the code, but WG focuses more on Commander mode and new premium tanks than small features that would improve gaming experience.

Can you ping the map repeatedly? 

Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm

I have no problem with that once you're out you're out would be fine with me too.

Unfortunately it seems you can.

I had a match today where I was a late round kill and was riding along with a Green AMX/Chaffee. The last 3 Greens were so intent on shooting up a Tiger P no one saw the Red King Dragon appear behind them. So I Ping, Ping, Ping and they actually got the message. I’m not usually one to advocate pinging but sometimes it helps if you don’t get stupid about it.

Yes, once they are dead and out of the fight they should not be able to ping the map more than 1 time. It gets really annoying to the other players actually playing the game.

If players could read a map and not play with horse-blinders on,there would be no reason to ping a zillion times!!!!

So young fellows if ya ping ping to quickly its over to fast. Its far more satisfying to per ping at a nice slow and steady pace so you can last longer.

Not really.  I am limited on my account and have premium.  Not sure why, but I have seen other players ping throughout the game.  Yet others seem to be limited.  
I'm just saying.....

Just let me have the option to turn off that green wall of spam entirely.

When you have 14 other players that are tagging sectors and are instantly tagging every spotted enemy with requesting fire and using pointless commands like Awesome and Good Game during the entire battle it buries any useful information in a green wall of garbage, making it all useless spam.

Dead players can still provide useful information. Like where unspotted enemies are or recommending a route to take.

Some players just seem to ping for no apparent reason.......I really hate the ones that just keep pinging your location. OK they might think you are in the wrong location ? or should have followed them to your death ?, but just pinging the same location is no help to anyone.
