Enemy quick commands in battle chat

Hi,

I keep getting the occasional F-key quick message from an enemy player in my battle chat, like the "Well Done" message (F11?). Is that a bug or a feature? Or a mod even? And if it's a feature, how do I do that? Cause just hitting the F key in the general battle chat (=the white one where messages go to both teams) does not seem to be doing it.

Yes it does, but only with certain F-keys: https://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Ship:Controls#Quick_Commands_.28Quick_Messages.29

And you have to leave chat first.

Fantastic! So WG is providing players with a great, anti-intuitive way to spread sarcasm and bile, intentionally or unintended, and I suppose it doesn't even count as chat abuse. Really a stellar achievement.

Sometimes I think they should stop censoring the chat altogether, let players say whatever they want and work it out amongst themselves. Take a leaf out of Rust's book etc.

I noticed it sooner but never wondered enough to bother finding out. I suppose the recent increase in chat bans spurred my curiosity. Players are obviously using the quick commands with a corresponding increase in frequency to circumvent getting chat banned while still being able to insult others through sarcastic use.

 

Also it's more like 30k battles counting all my other accounts.

Well yes and no. It's possible to use them sarcastically or non-sarcastically. Same as the typed equivalent 'GG'. Personally, I use 'good game' both ways... but don't tell anyone. However, the F10 command I never use sarcastically. I mean it as a compliment either to my team, team mate, or the enemy team.
