  • Got Muted for playing Earth Spirit.

    , I played many games in the past few days with ES, and never got muted, but every game players would say (even my own team), "i am reporting you for picking ES".
    I didn't give them much attention but, yesterday, i got a mute for 168 hours straight, no 24 hours, no 48 hours, directly to 168 hours mute.
    I don't mind the mute at all, since now i can continue to play ES without the fear of mute for the next week, and do whatever i want.

    But the thing is, how is this even allowed? I know its an automated system, but still it kinda sucks. I don't rly talk to much even if i am not muted, it wont affect me that much, but the coordination in team might be flawed since i actually can't say shit.

    So i have to ask, why things like these are allowed and not punished for abusing the system?

    I have to mention that i have not been muted since the mute reset and that first update that changed a little how mute works.

      Writing this before the "die in hell you ES-picker" bandwagon starts:

      The only thing that prevents unjustified reports is that you need several reports to actually get muted. So unfortunately, if you got consecutive reports that were all based on your ES pick, you are screwed - welcome to the automatic system. Of course, that is assuming you really weren't shit-talking in the games.
      Remember, remember the 1st of November

        Because checking if the reports were valid can't be automated, and what can't be automated costs money. This is why chat quotes should be required for communication abuse reports, but alas, that'd make sense and Valve rarely goes for those solutions.

          I am not shit talking, i kinda learned that from the first time mute system was introduced, and not so much as shit talking as, i am not talking at all in my games now, its probably the only online game where i have almost 0 interaction with my team, out of fear of the mute. (And it worked until now, i never got muted, i just didnt say absolute shit in chat. I always picked first so i dont get that "OMG LAST PICK GANKER OMG OMG.")
          The only time i actually talk is if i have 2-3 stack with me, or i see that my team m8's actually know the game and are "talkative"
          I still believe an automate MUTE system is stupid of an epic proportion in a game like this.

            Jerax played a ton of earth spirit (and was notorious for doing so) but somehow he didn't get muted. Something's weird here huh..

                Can you provide a match ID? If you really didn't flame anyone, you should have nothing to fear

                    You can search how much you want, the only thing i say in All chat is "gl hf" in the beginning and "gg wp" in the end. And in Team chat i rarely say anything as i specified.

                            Go tell that to Path of Exile devs, the Grinding Gear Games. They are a very small company with ~30 employees, that made the best game of 2013 (as stated by the best magazines and gaming sites).
