We mentioned this previously but we have updated our processes a bit. I don't think "allocating more resources to enforcing" is the correct way to describe the changes, but closer to improving our workflows in general to enforce the reported violations better

I think this means that the post game menu bugs are fixed.

I like the new reporting options. Hopefully there’s something in place to automate “throwing” and “intentionally idle” reports, or sometning to at least flat them for manual review. Because more than toxicity or anything negative in chat, these are the things that are truly detrimental to the population & cause many to play less. Not sure I’ll get an answer, but I am curious how Psyonix plans to address these new report issues. Looks good on the surface but I wonder how effective it’ll be.

Also - Are the post game menu bugs fixed? Don’t see it mentioned, but don’t see it on the issues list, and I remember /u/psyonix_ted saying it’d be fixed in the next patch. EDIT: this seems fixed, just misunderstood the wording.

Lastly - is voice chat back? I don’t see it mentioned either but it’s weird if you can report for verbal harassment while that isn’t even a thing yet lol

Voice chat is not back as of yet and this report option is mainly just prepping ahead of time for when it DOES come back :)

For now, report under the category of "Match Throwing or Griefing". Getting the report at all is what really matters on our end

Yes, yes. I know; maybe an unpopular opinion, but it’s a problem in some cases.

For anything like this / matchmaking abuse, use Match Throwing or Griefing

Originally posted by GarbageLeague

Is it? They said they would make more of an effort to reduce smurfing, yet they took away the only two relevant options to report smurfs (Unsportsmanlike and Cheating)

Use "Match Throwing or Griefing" for anything related to matchmaking abuse.

Great updates to the reporting options; especially being able to check multiple reasons.

I hope there are also plans to apply more penalties to offending players! Are you really going to ban people for being "intentionally idle", or is the option just a honeypot?

We are currently banning people for being intentionally idle. Those who are banned will see a ban for "Unsportmanlike Conduct"

Hiya! We are not changing the Season 4 Rewards, which are due to be released tomorrow. We've seen all the feedback, and we're using it to better inform our internal discussions around rewards moving forward.

i really hope that the devs are still monitoring this thread, because, honestly, that new reporting system is RIPE for abuse, and it's already starting thanks to this new update. :(

my best friend was playing comp 2's this evening, and he got thrown into a game where he suddenly had the dreaded BAD PING. his car was virtually uncontrollable for a good portion of the entire match. because of the bad ping and his car being zipped around the pitch like a pinball, he kept unintentionally bumping his teammate, who took this as an affront, abused him via chat a bunch. at the end of the match his salty teammate used some reporting option which landed him a two hour ban -- right when we usually get to play the game together.

people could start to, and appear to already be abusing this new system purely out of spite.

if that bad ping issue that has been plaguing the RL servers for MONTHS now isn't fixed, or at the very least isn't accounted for by the automated side of the reporting system, people are gonna get bans on their accounts that they simply didn't deserve. the system is obviously not gonna see anything wrong and erroneously apply bans if it doesn't take bad pings and network issues into account.

the other side of the abuse of the reporting system that could easily happen is pretty obvious. what if someone played badly, like, say, unintentionally own-goaled a couple of times, refused to ff when a teammate asked them to for whatever reason, etc, and the salty teammate reported them? they wouldn't deserve it, but the system would probably see it as justified because of the mistakes made and apply a ban to their account.

this is almost an in-game digital equivalent of swatting. it seems to me that if the game readily hands out a ban as a result of a salty or spiteful user mistaking the problem generated by the game itself as a player just being bad on purpose and erroneously reporting them for something they have absolutely no control over, well, that's not entirely fair, is it?

psyonix, rethink this new reporting system, because it has problems that can be abused. or at the very least, fix yer darned servers.

thank you.

Hey there, if you'd like to DM me your friend's username, we can take a look at the ban. Also, if you want to share screenshots or videos of match latency, I'd be happy to look further into them. However, I'd like to clarify some facts about our banning systems so we can clear up any confusion.

We do not have a system that bans players for griefing or match throwing that is purely report-based. We also do not have intentions of creating a ban system that relies purely on a number of reports, especially not without crucial pieces of information that solidify a pattern of behavior. Typically, one-off events are not worthy of a ban so the occasional accidental own-goal won't result in any sort of action.

I hope this helps!
