  • Mute system more lenient? How?

    Been waiting for them to ditch this horrible system and I was wondering how did they make the mute system more lenient? Does it require 1 more report or did they actually make something different this time?

    Terrible system either way and it has to go. It's killing the community, everyone is scared of using the chat because of possible instant mute and that's not what gaming is about.

    Well, none of us know yet, but the easiest way I can think of to make it more lenient is to increase the threshold of being reported from 2-3-4 to something like 2-4-6.

    Plus of course, now that your reports get reset in two weeks of not being reported, there will be far fewer people registering weeklong mute bans.

    Just to clarify, there was never any "win rate" calculation. Ever. It is true that a goal of matchmaking is to make even teams. The matchmaker also will raise your Elo and try to put you in players of equivalent skill, which indirectly tries to get the win rate to 50%. However, it has never looked at your historical win rate and put you in a game where it knew that you were expected to lose.
    Is every post on this forum about the Dunning-Kruger effect?

      I swear sometimes 'cuz my team sucks or stuff... but I never got silenced or something related.

      But well, I'm against this ridiculous system (Some friends I play with got silenced without say a single word [We talk via Skype])

      Hoping for her release.

        I hope soon someone can come up with this info because I would like to know if I can actually talk without being afraid of being muted.
