Trolls have discovered there's no voice identification.



  • It used to be that when someone spoke their name would appear on the screen. With that feature gone now, trolls have realized they can blast music over their mic with no consequences of being identified.

    Without any means to identify or ignore them, I have to leave good servers when these guys enter now. Sucks.



  • There’s always the option to turn off voice as well.



  • @b3h47pte:

    No offense good sir, but I believe the best option is still to see who is talking. Why have the voice chat option if it’s simply meant for trolling? I’m a big fan of things working as intended, not working with work-arounds that disable game features.

    Is this even near the priority list?

    But yeah, you can mute them (and b3h47pte, no offense at you, you were just trying to help), but then you don’t hear anyone who has something meaningful to say.



  • Meh, voice chat is buggy as hell anyways.



  • I love listening to no balls European and American kids XD. They sound so funny having such high perthetic voices!!!



  • Voice identification was removed? I disagree with that personally. It makes sense to know who is talking to you, if it’s to you. At least you can identify if it’s someone nearby, and of course it helps to kick people who abuse it by playing irritating music.

    An easy fix is to disable in-game voice which I’ve opted to do since the start.

    I’m with b3h47pte on this one. I lasted about a week in Chivalry before permanently turning off ingame voice chat. Nothing useful has come out of it before I switched it off. I suspect things are different in the pro scene. But I also suspect competitive teams can use better voice communication tools than the one provided ingame.



  • how do you turn it off? mute seems to do nothing



  • Mute works but it turns itself off every now and again.

    There’s also an issue where people’s mics get stuck down. And no one can see who it is.



  • i don’t want voice gone, i want it to work properly with team chat and such, coordinating with text blows.

    Heard some funny shit cause of that…



  • Yes, there are trolls, but sometimes good things too. Like “let’s go A” or something like that. One guy also went into a duel server and started sportscasting everyone’s duel. That was pretty cool, too.

    Yeah and that’s why I wish we could see who’s talking. Not everyone does horrible stuff, some people are fun and entertaining, some are helpful and offer advice, some try to coordinate objectives. The small, yet resilient, group of trolls who spam voice chat, play annoying music/static, talk abusively to others etc. are bringing it down for everyone because we’re all just turning off voice hearing altogether.

    The sportscasting of duel matches sounds awesome, by the way :).



  • mentioned this bug over a month ago, and got no responses at all that were any better than pete’s, thanks .

    its not cool when some one can come into your server and clear it out from 25 ppl dwn to 6 from playing classical music and techno for an hour straight.
    and with the lack of admin support us admins have been given this past year who would want to even have to or want to try and mute each player one by one, as if admining this toxic comunity isnt hard enough as it is with what we have.

    this should be fixed and is yet another major bug that ruins our gameplay and clears our servers and just simply makes tb look bad and incapable yet again.



  • This really needs to be fixed.

    Admins have no way to tell who is spamming the voicechat and therefore can’t take appropriate actions to kick/ban/mute the offending troll.

    These is no reason to have removed the voice identification. Please return it in an update.

    Is anybody from Torn Banner reading these kind of messages?



  • Just spent an hour on a great duel server full of great players until some douchebag came in and started playing music and making silly sounds. There’s absolutely nothing we can do so everyone just leaves. It’s very unfortunate.

    I actually spent a good 5+ minutes spectating trying to figure out who it was because I could hear some occasional sounds from his game. I couldn’t find him so I had to leave.

    Is Deadliest Warrior going to suffer from the same issues as Chiv? If that’s the case, you’ve lost my purchase, which makes me sad 'cause I love this game.

    I highly doubt deadliest warrior will share the same problems.



  • how has this not been fixed yet?

    do you even care about this bug torn banner?

    its kinda not cool that people can come in and clear servers with music or voice spaming dont ya think?

    I thought you were an admin.

    And music is easy. Just mute people till the music stops then launch a votekick saying its him. Or if you are admin just kick/ban him.

    A simple bump would of sufficed. Rather than be a bitch about it. I mean would they wan to listen as do what people like you say. I know I wouldn’t.



  • This has been a bit of a problem on the SM servers - not people spamming their own voice but instead playing bad rap music or in one case, the dulcet tones of porn to the server.

    The only way I could work out who it was was to go through each player while the sound was on and mute them one by one until it stopped.

    Not an ideal solution, but did help with some of the recurring trolls
