Hmmm, bit of a weird one. Maybe I upset the Snowflakes? I have been blocked from typing even in my own clan. Not sure how. I am  a socialist PC player from the UK...

It say I can't add messages as people complained but all I've done is kill people in my new ship, the Warspite...

Eitehr reveiw the logs and remove the ban or tell me what I said that is offensive please? Is torpaedo offenseive? Please explain specifically and not with a cut and paste response...

How long is your ban? 24h or 72h?

48 h

Anything past 24h has gone through manual review.

 

Someone submitted a replay of you being toxic

Someone reviewed it + logs from "recent" games and confirmed that you were toxic

They issued you a chatban

 

48h instead of the standard 72, that could mean it was a rather "rare" case of toxicity for you. Still, it has been confirmed to exist

Honestly, no idea why I would be banned. I am a free thinking anti brexit liberal feminist....

24h chatban is auto-issued when enough people report you for "chat misbehaviour". It can be as simple as you saying "Hi" and people reporting you because why not. I think WG is working on fixing the abusability of this

Also chatban isn't issued with the phrase that was deemed "offensive" by those players reporting you, it is issued next time you write something in chat. This may happen even with multiple games in between where you were silent.

 

 

On a sidenote, I have a theory that despite Karma supposedly doing nothing it does impact how many reports you need before chatban is confirmed on you.

I have noticed that with positive Karma, especially when it has climbed up higher I can speak much more freely and for a longer period, just that my Karma starts falling down bit by bit.

Meanwhile at 0 Karma it seems as if a single div of 3 people is enough to chatban you (altho WG representatives have repeatedly said that 3 players, especially in a div, is not enough. Question is do we take their word for that?)

1. And then you wonder why your comments would get banned :Smile_trollface:

2. Noone cares. This isn't some political forum, whatever you beleave - keep it out of here. I'm pretty sure political discussions are even against the rules

How do  i get it reviewed manually?

24h ban? You won't.

Anything past 24h? It already was manually reviewed.

Context is everything, so I guess if you thought disguising the word 'paedo' in chat was the height of clever abuse the ban system turned out to be even cleverer.

 

edit - 'paedo' is a slang term meaning 'paedophile' a sexual abuser of children.

By the few examples presented here by you, I have very doubts that you are a rather colourful chatter ingame. And thus I assume that you are not aware what you words can do or mean to others. You might expect that all other are also "light" chatter as you.

 

Mind you words!

Tbh all i see is a system open to abuse. If the karma brownie points are anything to go by atleast.

You can just have a smashing game and not utter a single word and loose as many karma as the enemy team has reports left. Or by getting teamkilled, since that destroyer who launched his torps from teh back line thinks you should have teleported your freddy the great out of the way, or not doing what the so maniest 40%er armchair admiral wants you to do ......

 

you get the idea :P

and to make it an even more perverted system, they abstain from human scrutiny of said system . . . .

I used to work for the BBC and they have a libtard agenda. Fakt.

 

I was pretty drunk. Maybe I did something or said stuff over several games and got flagged by several people during the course of a drunken rampage.

getting tired of people complaining about cvs, stating that before dds and cruisers would dominate the game, next thing chat ban. ridiculous.

I know I can be salty sometimes but this is getting out of hand with chat bans left and right. You sometimes need chat to specify what you want to do in a battle, or what target you are going for. And people flag you for apparently no reason. I am fine with a bot being used to filter bad language but stop tossing people off the chat because of hate-filled little kids. Wargaming practically makes it impossible for people to team play like this.

 this I know. Playing CV and losing a few matches in a row your karma drops to "below zero", then 1 chat and boom chat ban. For what? Nothing really. I even get salty flags for destroying the enemy cv. CV and Karma/chatbans are a toxic combination. You just can't chat when playing CV. You get so much hate.

See, if it were up to me, I would ban you for this message alone. Not because of one ideology or another but because you keep trying to politicize this forum which is out of line and because that word in particular is a combination of liberal and a highly offensive word.

 

Just based on this thread alone you seem like an unpleasant individual and if you behaved the same way in chat then your ban is totally warranted.

I'm afraid the problem already begins with the first sentence.

Imagine this as welcome greet in the jobs manager office as an example, as an introduction to beginning a conversation.

Continuing in such a way does not lead to a positive outcome.

 

Forum communications should be polite, it's also possible to rant with manners and in style  :D

Enjoy WoWs, everyone :)

The most hilarious part is that he went on a forum for a game that is basically played by bunch of guys who like their digital boats and proceeded to act out some tumblr rage for no reason, expecting it would yield dozens of high fives. I look at this thread once a day and it's still mindboggling:)

 

I mean, imagine going to a car mechanic and before he even says a word to you, you already comment like seven times how flat earthers are dumb or something. It just means you're obsessed, nothing else.

 

-Hey man, what seems to be the problem?

"The car won't start at all, perhaps flat earthers put sugar in my tank haha!"

-hehe, yeah:) erm, so, does it try to start at all, is the battery working?

"of course it does, I'm not a flat earther!"

-oookaay:) Yeah, battery seems fine, let me see the nozzles...

"Yeah, man, gotta check them nozzles... we're good flat earthers, we always check nozzles"

-uh, wat

"Hey, don't make that face, I'm a good flat earther, I promise"

-...
