  • Mute System Broken and Abused - Proof/Video


  • #2
    You should have waited a little before making this post. The next patch will include changes to the mute system and will remove your current penalty.

      instead of posts of people saying abuse or posting screenshots, videos are posted.

        Whoever developed the comm ban system should apologize for it. The thing was clearly half-baked and has ruined the game experience for many, many players.

        2 reports in 48 hours? I think we can assume it was implemented after one of the developers got flamed in a game, then decided to abuse their power with a very excessive penalties, and now the most dedicated players are getting muted.

        They should be ashamed that it's taking this long to acknowledge and correct the problem.

            Why are you even bother? Whole server agrees with you and everyone even devs know that this system is SHIT and extremely bad, and still Volvo doesn't give a shit about community or what 90% of the forum is saying... They won't remove it cause then that will prove them wrong and they don't want that... They are just stubborn and ignorant, just like all those volvo knights that support that without any valid arguments while we put out hard and legit evidence xD

            What's more to say...

              People actually fear that they might lose matches vs bots?

                Video makes me sad. I feel so sorry for the OD

                OT: You can not not communicate.
                Still you hit the point. It makes no sense to mute ban people who don't communicate. It's just a trash system.

                  For all you know the system could still be just as bad and non-lenient. But waiting to see...

                    For all you know the system could actually be better and more lenient. But waiting to see...

                    Please don't be so negative.

                      Considering that I was the guy that looked up all this stuff, I guessed that it was automatic and time-based along with punishing towards frequent players, and by the end of all of it I was correct... I think I'll stick with what volvo's track record here has been suggesting.

                        Please you need to relax and realize the system is here for us. The benefit will sow much.

                        • If you complain about it, you're one of the people who have taken swift punishment from it. Proving it works.
                        • If you keep arguing against it, you're a repeat offender, proving it works again.
                        • ONLY REPEAT OFFENDERS continue to fight it.
                        • Thank you Valve! Finally a system that shuts bad attitudes, big egos and ignorance down like a bad habit.

                        Do you disagree? Please let me know why HERE!

                            About your sig: Are you serious? Watch my video I posted. Guy did nothing wrong, didn't even speak during that game, gets muted. It happens all the time, because people are assholes.

                              Everyone knows the system is abusable, and now with dedicated people like you PROVING it with tests and videos in NEW accounts without previous punishments...only shuts up the valve indoctrinates that say "Mute system works fine and isn't abusable because I haven't been muted" is just a plain dumb statement

                              Automated systems like this will always be abusable

                              Now some important points about this video:

                              1° Is it bad to go mid like a zombie without calling, planning lanes, and replying to your team? YES it is, but its definitively NOT communication abuse by ANY means, nor anything that should be reported, this kind of report is an ABUSE of the system, because that OD KNOWS the system is abusable, and abuses it to take revenge.
                              2° What if drow was muted? how does she calls "I'm picking drow for mid" or "Please go top its better for our lineup" or anything of the kind? That drow going mid and staying silent like a zombie/russian could have been CAUSED by the mute system
                              3° This guy had 3 games in a NEW account, meaning a LOT of people are muted RANDOMLY merely because of bad luck with being reported with no reason or justification

                              The only people who say the system isn't abusable, is the people who abuse it the most as revenge, they dont want to lose that.
                              Make a NON automated report system.
                              I would rather wait 10 minutes for a balanced, fun and exciting match that will last 1+ hours. Than wait 10 seconds for a poorly balanced crapmatch that will end in 30- minutes
                              Valve, How I'm I supposed to respect certain boundaries to prevent a mute if I dont know them because they are different for each and every person on each and every game I play?
                              The only type of player that dislikes having his stats public are the players that suck and cheaters
