Ok, I have been a long long time player of this game, but I have really had it and am at my limit. I was going to say that this community is trash, but to be honest it is just the Internet in general, and really there is nothing you can do about it. You aren't going to ban the verbal harassers since this is a free game and I get that, and even if you do ban them, there will be 5 others to replace the 1.
Anyway, that said I have a suggestion:
I would like to request that you are allowed to turn chat completely off (not just a language filter, but shut it off completely). I would suggest the following:
- Allow this option to be remembered so I wouldn't have to shut it off every game.
- When starting the game (both in pregame and in the game itself) the game should notify all players that Player x has their chat shut off
- During the game, every 10-15 minutes the game should remind everyone (in the chat window) that "REMINDER - Player x has their chat disabled".
- If someone has their chat disabled, the game does now allow reporting for not communicating.
It is really a shame that it has come to this, but I just can't take the chat in this game any longer, and I think this is a viable solution since it would cut down on the verbal harassment reports.
