  • Spam protection in global chat channels.

    I can't believe I have to ask this again, PLEASE ADD SPAM PROTECTION. The fact we have to put up with crap like this is pathetic and nothing is being done about it.

    This spams up the chat channel because the window is so small, and yet NOTHING has been done about it. It's not a hard addition so why hasn't it been added already?
    I am getting sick and tired of reporting every retarded spammer when something as simple as filtering the amount of messages people can send within a specific time frame would solve this issue entirely.

    It's bad enough that commendations are even in the game(maybe when pigs fly they will be removed entirely..). But until something is done about it we(the normal gamers that dont a)spam and b) whore for commendations have to put up with it.

    Great, so now there's bots running in these channels, DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT VALVE.

      List of things that can be done (not exclusive to each other)

      -Flood/Spam prevention (not more than x messages/characters in y time)
      -Detect and warn/ban accounts that spam the same message repeatedly
      -Reset commendations for fun (hey, it's beta)
      -Only allow players to commend people they have played a full match with
      -Remove commendations until you know how to fix and use them

      Currently there is no reason to be in a chatroom is they all get bombarded by spam. Spam=! social interactions (which is the aim of a chatroom).

        What's the point of the spam though? Do commendations even do anything besides look pretty on your ptofile?
