Is reporting players only possible on server replays or can you actually do it in match by the players TAB
You can report them in-game for minor things like communication, and passive behavior (AFK) but little more. They really need to overhaul the system to include options like suspected botting that would automatically send that match replay along with hte report. A lot more people would actually get reported I think.
Adding to this, the replay and reporting functionality on console is incredibly clunky and time consuming. You can only report 5 times every 6 hours with the in-game function. Anecdotally, I’d say at least a third of the current player base is on console.
Given what we’re currently seeing in ARB, I find it incredibly disconcerting that there were only 174 (!) accounts banned in the last month, and the onus for reporting and policing the game continues to fall on the players.
It would be fantastic if Gaijin would, at a minimum, publicly acknowledge the problem and assure the player base that they are proactively working to find a solution and path forward — that doesn’t exclusively rely on the players loading replays.
I play PC and have no idea how to report people outside of the game using the Replay. Based upon experiences in NRB, at least 10+ people most games need reporting usually. So a limit does not aid in that task. Yeah, if it must fall upon the shoulders of the community to police it, then at minimum every effort must be made to make the process as easy and accessible for all
Feel free to Check this Topic, everything is explainted there!
Thank you… But…
This is little help if you are running on console as this would require loading up a PC seperately, and even for PC players, this is not done in game, it appears to be done externally in browser, also not ideal.
This also does not seem to be that quick or easy. (if it needs a long forum post with pictures to explain, few will actually ever use it, especially if they dont ever go onto the forums) and if you want to report multiple people (not uncommon in NRB at the moment) , then you could spend quite a while reporting everyone. And if there is a limit of 5 people per 6 hours as someone else has mentioned then that is little help either, if 10+ people per match appears to be exhibiting behaviour that could indicate botting (again not uncommon in NRB)
I think we need the server replay method of reporting to be intergrated into the system we have already in game, making it much easier for console users and a lot quicker for everyone. It already exists for things like rude behavior, just need that system extended and improved. If I saw someone, who was 100% cheating with massive hacks and there was no doubt about it, I dont think I’d be bothered to go through this lengthy process to report it.
Improvements need to be made if Gaijin wants user to be primarily responsible for policing things like botters.
The system outlined here is completely inadequate and cumbersome for the scale and frequency of the issue at hand—as evidenced by the paltry number of banned accounts in June.
As a console player I would be spending more time watching replays and reporting people than I would be playing the game.
Please, please, PLEASE help us help you!
Why can’t it be done ingame, on match? If people average behave like me (reporting while in game) they are not going to wait and make a report after a game as they want to queue for the next one immediately.
