    I dont understand the idea of this. Players must have right to give bad commends about teamates.

    My case: I just said "omg" "omg" "noob" when a player got a bad move. After that i got reported and banned from chat in following games. Seriously? Is that so easy to ruin my game experience?

    I may consider leaving the game if Vavle wont fix this.

    1. This is abused to easily ruin someones game who you feel "sucked on your team". Hence it's an easy to use punishment.
    2. It doesn't really ruin the players game. Let's say I'm muted, I couldn't care less. All I'll do is mute the 9 others and keep playing. I can't communicate as to why I can't help in a certain situation and much more. So really this ruins the game for the 9 others.
    3. What does 2. result in? More reports to the muted player - who will then never leave the muted "group".

    Result? Players stop communicating or stop playing the game.

    Well done valve, well done. This is by far the most retarded thing ever implemented into dota2. It's a matter of time before you see it removed or a decline in players. Simple as.

I know what you are thinking that "It's my fault that I got into this mess and the reason why I can't chat" but seriously this has really deducted the fun in Dota 2. Yes i do trashtalk, but I know for sure all Dota 2 players trashtalk so it's like you muted most of the community. So know I hope you bring about a new update removing the chat restriction as soon as possible. And yes I can speak as I am civilize which I am not to boast, just showing you that the Dota 2 community can show decency. Please do understand my feedback because Im 100% sure, many players feel the same way as I do towards the chat restriction.
    I don't trashtalk. And I know there are people in my friendslist who don't trashtalk.
    I also hold it aginst you that you trashtalk. You have as much been a handicap to enjoying the game as this half-assed new punishment system.

    It is like dotabuff.com. Yeah, everyone uses it, but only because arrogant players use it. Yeah, everyone was trash talking, but only because rude players did it.


    "i pinged alot" - single greatest reason why that guy probably lost his hero. Your allies can't concentrate on the game with you being obnoxious.

    Couldn't agree more. This pretty much removes a player from the game, all they can do is click on things. They cannot be useful to their team in the means of communication. Right after this update came, i got chat restricted and played a single match after that. I was on lane, and noticed spirit breaker charging at our low HP pudge and i tried to quickly type in to alert him but NO, i can't. So i pinged alot on him but of course he didn't understand, therefore died. Chat restricting people also makes it even more common for them to get reported as players get really mad when people don't warn them about things or never talk, resulting in a pretty much endless chain of reporting and punishment. The "Do something bad = No battle points and bad stuff" system was fair enough but only temporarily as feeders/abusers/etc can still do their "job" in low priority. But THIS thing is horrible even for being temporary and reports can be easily abused. How? Get a team full of your friends, have them all report everyone. Bam. I heard the new report threshold for punishment is reduced to 4 or something else changed to 4 but if it really is the threshold you could get 3 friends ( + you ) and go on matchmaking and report the random teammate you get and simply get him punished. This also works even if the threshold would be like 7, you could lie to the enemy team about bad behaviour and they could report without knowing. Giving punishment into the hands of the players is a really bad idea in general but completely making them useless and making every mad and sad is absolutely idiotic.
