Is Karma bugged?

Hi, 

 

I can't help noticing that the value I see for Karma seems to be almost random. For example, yesterday it was at 3. Today I get a message after my 1st game "you have been complemented" and it's down to 1. I didn't get any messages about anyone complaining so how does the whole karma thing work?

The system doesn't report negative Karma, and it often doesn't report positive either.

 

As the playerbase is filled with the immature and the sociopathic, its quite normal to be spammed with negative karma whether you played well or badly.

I don't think you ever receive notifications about complaints? Some people will use them to report you just cos theyre tilted. It's a worthless system.

sometimes you get a pop-up 'reported' or similar, or maybe they've taken it away. Not a perfect system, but better than nothing.

you have to exit battle really quickly if you want to see your +/- on reports, if you look at the post battle screen for a few seconds too long, you miss them...

I had +24 Karma yesterday so in my game in Shimakaze I sank 4 ships within 9 minutes, got 2 caps, reclaimed a lost cap, spotted and got 5 torpedoes in a Midway... Survived the game as top scorer, victory.

 

Back in Port my Karma was +18...

 

Wish WG would just remove it as it is worthless and gives no reward....

I got reported today for gunning down a Minekaze in my brand spanking new Acasta. I saw his torps come from behind an island so I went in and spotted him not 3.5km away. Apparently I was using banned mods. I wouldn't have known I was reported, but the Minekaze captain felt it was necessary to pm me and inform that my mods are banned and he reported me for them. I've never used a single mod...:cap_hmm: 

 

Karma is and will always be a useless metric when the average player base has the IQ of a dead squirrel.

AFAIK, you only receive report messages if you've been reported more than once during a battle, i.e. by more than one person. Not to the extreme OP said (being notified of a +1 in karma yet actually being -2 since the previous check), but I've seen lots of compliment notifications without the counter going up, which I assume are due to someone else also giving a report.

 

Salute.

Now now, don't you go insulting those splotched squirrels on the road.

 

At least those guys went outside!
