How often do you kill yourself? I would bite that bullet in order to get rid if players that actually do it on purpose.

Just because this happen does not mean we allow it.  I just want to make that clear. We cant stop players who are driving their tanks to suicide in game.  If you see this happen, please report it and MaxChaos24 will look in to it.  

 

Good to know, next time I see it I'll record and report. I'm assuming you mean report via a support ticket?

That should already be on the fix list -- no need to procrastinate on a suitable punishment.

The same people have been doing this for 4 or 5 years now, with no apparent penalties as they have grinded many tank lines out with most of the line having an average of single digit damage.  I think it would be better to have a more efficient penalty system for people who do 0 in a game; or consistently perform excessively low/idle.

But you can react! Just punish these players hard! The gameplay is already bad enough, so it does not need such idiots too.

Actually, I think I would be in favor of this.  When this happens, it is 100% my fault (usually) and I usually am highly irritated that it happens.  This would allow a nice cool down for me before the next battle.

This is dued the excessivly exp requeired for mercenary contracts, some players want to play with lots of tanks but we cannot blame them, we never knwo if they are just bad, and no luck or just scuicide, we can only blame is the game for those contracts and we have two tier 10 mercenary contracts right now
Often times, people simply deny the existence of what they do not understand, and anyone who tells them otherwise is a liar. What they don't know stays unexplained and they are happy with that
The only people who are mad at you for speaking the truth are those who are living a lie…
Keep speaking the truth

This was happening long before the mercenary contracts or current ops -- it is a pattern of behavior that needs to be discouraged with a proper, and significant, penalty.

On the PS4 end of WoT we have a player called prik (won’t say full name, PS players know who I’m talking about) that is ALWAYS AFK on every game I’ve seen him in and he's somehow made it to tier 10 just doing that. I’ve reported him a few times and nothing has ever happened to him so I’ve given up hope on moderation.

An automated system makes sense, but not without some sort of reasonable threshold. If you accidentally fall while driving or didn't realize the water was too deep once, then you shouldn't get penalty. The game system can be used to recognize a pattern of game play over a series of games and then penalties should be applied. Reporting is difficult because most of us won't see the same players enough to see the pattern of suicidal tendencies.

Perhaps we could automate a penalty system -- if you suicide, you cannot enter a new battle for 15 minutes (the time for a full standard battle) after the completion of the battle you quit. 

This might discourage this sort of behavior.

 

I would also consider adding this penalty for those that spawn in a never move.

or just make it so the penalty only applies if you quit the battle early. so if you suicide by accident, you don't get a penalty so long as you watch the rest of the match rather than doing afk style behavior of suicide, new battle, suicide etc...

I have to admit I dont' see much AFK or suicide activity. Is this a higher tier thing?

 

AFK’s seem quite rare to me as well.

Could be connection issues for some players. And accidental at times as previously stated.

Can we clarify how we report “issues for investigation”, and what details are needed.

 

i agree, this does seem to occur a lot these days, mostly bottom tier tanks.  Whilst I agree there are accidental self-destructs, there are a lot of “on purpose”.  
 

I would have thought WG would have stats which would allow you to identify to the serial offenders.  Perhaps issuing a warning to them as a first step would a useful first step.

So, instead of afking they simply suicide right at the start of the match.

 

Just had a certain dump on my team and our team got rolled 15-0 because 2 of our team committed suicide right away. A 3rd team mate got 1 shot by a deathstar less than 40s into the match.

 

Why is this [edited]allowed WG? 

 

:D​LOL!!!
