Crack down on trolling/afk for gods sake


#1

It makes NO SENSE that i get stuck with an afk every other game, and even blatant feeders/trolls sometimes, but blizzard is focusing on people who hurt the feelings of others instead. I don’t like toxic players, true. I’d still rather have a toxic player than a literal bot because my teammate afk’d or a troll trying to throw on purpose.

Stop the toxicity witch hunt and fix the real issues in this game for god’s sake. I’m so tired of it.

If only they kept updating that like they did on the old forums :frowning:

I agree with you, I can mute people who are toxic, I have no such button for people who AFK or die on purpose. The problem is if Blizz decides to shift more of their focus to these issues they will probably just use the same automation and volume based report system they employ now for abusive chat. This will no doubt catch more people, but how many of them will really be true offenders is another question.

If they decide to carefully handle such matters with consideration and human oversight I’d welcome it. But with cutbacks I’m very doubtful they are going to expend any human resources and money on these matters.

plays should be forced to AI all the way up the difficulty chain before playing a new hero or starting new account

I don’t like the idea that I’m going to be punished for lousy playing. I’m still lousy and die repeatedly while pushing against the AI enemies. The declaration that I’m going to be kicked out for crappy gaming isn’t kosher and frankly, just proves my view of what this company has become. I play to have fun; not to have to measure up to whatever standard established nor whatever hive-mind expectations that has been laid out.
I’m sorry you feel that you need to put a lock on this game to control the behavior of it’s users. But, I question is this the correct method you want to use.
