Block Button for Block any Players

Postby Reibom_Aguinarok on Wed Aug 08, 2018 12:57 pm

I would like you to add an option to block players in the game so we do not fall back with them, because many are playing against competitive games or being toxic or racist, and this is leaving a lot of discouraged players and stopping playing.

Do you agree with the button to block players?

This would be abused. People would block others who are better than them so they wouldn't have to play against them.

Well, Tentacles, you're not entirely wrong in your point there, however, in the long run it has an interesting effect.

Back in Overwatch Beta, someone tried curating their matches by downvoting most/all players in a match that was a blowout or didn't feel good, and ended up downvoting so many players that the game simply couldn't put him in matches anymore - I believe to the degree he had over an hour long queue at one point. This is something that could happen similarly here - eventually you just end up hurting yourself because of increased matchmaking times. The game will still match you with people better than you to try to balance out matches, or will match you with worse teammates that you have to carry harder.

This is why though it looks like these systems can be abused, it's often not quite as simple as it appears on the surface, and a lot of the counter measures for abuse are either built into the tool, or come from the fact that there's a large enough playerbase that the "abuse" is meaningless
