Sick of encountering idiots and trolls in open seat games - An idea for blacklists: 7/3/2012 20:23:31

OK so the present blacklist system isn't brilliantly effective, unless you're on the forum every day waiting to see who's been trolling in individual games your only option is to wait until you encounter the troll and they ruin a game for you. So I had an idea that could work much better.

Allow people to share their blacklists, and make it easy for people to download blacklists that other users have. This way I believe what would happen is one or a few users would develop some sort of a following for having very good blacklists, and most people would use theirs. This would be a very effective way to excommunicate trolls, and perhaps those who keep the blacklists could have some kind of arbitration process where those who are on it can make an appeal to be removed.

If not this then something different HAS to be done, I've been playing Warlight for over a year now and the situation with trolls hasn't changed at all, they're still ruining several open seat games every day and it's beginning to get really damn tiresome.

I 'm nut sure that's a good idea....some people have different opinions of who are trolls and who is not.

Also....if everyone has the same blacklists some people (the blacklisted ones) won't be able to join any game. Warlight is for everyone to have fun and maybe some are trolls, but that does not gauratee them to not be able to play any games.

(PS sorry for my Bad english)

Make strict open seat prerequisites... Not many trolls play over 500 games and/or have decent win rates.

I agree with this point, my idea is that some people would develop a reputation for making good blacklists, and also having an appeals process where decent players who were perhaps bad in one or two games can be given another chance.

That's exactly the idea, if someone is ruining it for everyone then we want them to be blocked from games across the board so that those who play properly and fairly can enjoy a better game.

I just encountered a troll with over 3000 games to his name. I agree that prerequisites are a good thing, they certainly help when avoiding trolls, but they don't stop trolls entirely. I must refer you to the point I made about having to wait until you encounter a troll and experience them ruining a game in order to blacklist them.

simple solution for trolls make a new account plus developing a reputation for making good blacklists sounds silly and so those appealing if you want to know who to blacklist search the forums for blacklist this guy threads.

They can make a new account but then they'll first of all lose all their stats which will make it harder for them to get into games with prerequisites, and also they might simply out themselves as trolls again and immediately end up on the blacklist once more. And if they don't act like trolls well then that would prove that the system is working and the problem of their trolling would be solved.

I already addressed searching the forums in the original post, sure you can do it, but it's a massive waste of time for everyone and in reality almost nobody actually does it.

you can never stop trolling plus it might not decrease trolling

This isn't an idea to stop trolling, this is an idea to LIMIT trolling, also I am fully aware it might not work but are you saying we shouldn't try things just because they might not work? I don't understand why you have this attitude to the problem of trolling.

I set seat requirements, and never have problems with trolls. Id try that.

It was a game I hosted. I lowered the prereqs b/c with higher prereqs, people weren't joining.

I say instead of blacklisting the trolls, we instead create an area just for trolls to play. Then when we are hungry, we sacrifice a troll and have it for dinner
