I notice on the EU forums that you can not post, nor create a thread, on anything other than Newcomers Forum, unless you have completed 250 battles......sure would solve a lot of issues over here....(gold spam, whining taters, etc.)

just sayin'.......

Good catch. I wonder why they don't implement that here. Ghost Prime, they should implement that on here. Doesn't have to be 250 battles, just something like 50 or 100 to get the spam gone.

You'd be amazed at what great lengths a spammer will go through these days

 

Here you must play a min.10 battles before you are permitted to post

 

Today's spammer was in-game last night prior to spamming their junk

 

Lawndarted 10 straight times and then ran to the forums

 

Now if we had a 250 battle min we'd have a heck of a lot more matches ruined by some sack of you know what TT wants to say

 

The forum has baby sitters, and we all know they take their ole sweet time to handle the nearly abandoned red-headed step child

 

The best way to handle this is how our developers blog is handled....all post are subjected to moderation before it can be viewed by the public

 

Will WG apply this for their beloved beat up and mostly ignored problem child? 

 

Nope, they waste enough time on us...:(

It was 50 battles, did they change it again?

 

Edit: They changed it I can't post again.

 

Edit 2: You can post in the newcomers forums though.

​The title of most ignored / nearly abandoned now goes to Master of Orion. Only 1 post by a Wargaming employee there since the end of December. This is VIP treatment by comparison. As for the minimum battle requirement, I think it might be a good idea if its like 100 or so. If somebody is stuck and needs advice they may not get up to 250 before quitting.

Well, you can post on the Newcomer's Forum, which would be the logical place to go for advice, I guess.

I also noticed that you cannot even send PMs until you get 250 battles, or you RECEIVE 10 messages....that's going just a bit too far ihmo.

I created an EU account for a couple of reasons...primarily, it was in order to play the other morning when the servers were borked up.  However, It's nice to have 15v15 matches with only 3 or 4 bots per side.

Finally got my 109B so I can get out of Tier 2&3.

Stats sure look nice without the horrible win rate of my first 2000 battles weighing me down.

The problem is the forums are hacked to allow the spam... so amount of base battles will stop the spammer.  Even our forums have a minimum battle requirement to create posts... yet spammers get in and post with 0 battles.

I have a min battle amount set on all the threads, and have for some time. We have been working hard to find a solution to the forum spammers. I do apologize for the time it has taken. They are very crafty. We should not see them again as a backend measure will be rolled out this week.

Very nice !  A good thing something is happening.

 

Your apologie is very noted, but this solution was opted like 1.5 years ago?

Please bring this up in 1 of your meetings, why did it last so long?

I know we have a minimum but it isn't as retardely high as the EU 250 match requirement. This is the third or forth time they have increased the required match count and it should have been obvious to them early on that increasing the match count is not working.
