So yeah, WG keeps track of EVERYTHING you say in game

18 posts in this topic

Should come as no surprise.  I head people talk about them quoting PMs in the past.  I guess I thought the sheer amount of data could hide my bad actions ;)

Apparently I was reported for something (My In Game Rating is a solid "0"), so they went back and did a Keyword Search on my game chat (I guess).  I guarantee I used the work FUCK more than Tard this last week.

I thought this is old topic, something like this was here before...

Anyways I would be surprised if they don't monitor everything.

It's a real bizarre mystery how WG even keeps track of these kind of things and why some people get caught for the smallest insults and others can throw out a dictionary worth of verbal diarrhea match after match and never be banned or even warned. WG is so inconsistent it just bugles the mind.

So WG can keep track of everything going on in the in-game chat, but we can't get spotting damage in the damned API?

Seems legit.

I am not sure on this, but I think WG digs into these thing only after stimulus - ticket, reports etc. That'd explain some people find themselves chatbanned/renamed etc so suddenly.

Chatlogs are and have pretty much always been a thing since probably the alpha. It's kind of a standard thing to have in a text based game. Ya know, pretty much any program or game ever has logs for technical and in this case, social reasons. All they have to do is ctrl+f and find the time stamp that reflects when the screenshot or replay that the offender supposedly said such thing and confirm it based on their chat log file, and issue a ban. Oh, and not forgetting to copy and paste a generic response about how you won't know if they get banned :^)

Unless you get reported by a lot of people, wg would not do anything about it.

A mind is a terrible thing to bugle.

I've already gotten strike 5 of 5 so I'm guessing the next one is a permanent chat ban. WG really has a hard on for chat banning anyone that says the word "retard". Not that it's the only thing I've ever said, ha.

...Really?   "Retarded" is one of their things?

 

Christ.  They must not go off on this shit in WoWS.  I've absolutely ripped the hell out of people for parking a battleship in the back all match spectating.

One of my freinds on NA is carer for a challenged child and as a result my lingo has changed to tater/potato/peanut/brickwithears/lala/chocolate teapot/muppet/mullet or whatever else I can manage at the time. I now tend to really dislike abuse like retard/versions thereof as it's a little like racial slurs, but whatever floats your boat I guess.

Looks like I finally pissed off enough chickenshit camping BB drivers.  I got a 24 hour chat ban today after ripping into a couple idiots that basically didn't leave spawn until a third of the team was dead.
