Of course I can't read it but chances are it's just going to make that person pissed that they're being ignored. They're going to do just as bad and possibly lose the game. And of course those kinds of people are the first to throw out reports every game to someone who didn't play like they wanted them too and that just clogs the report system. Why is it so hard to just make a limit on how many times you can say a vgs? I mean damn. Just 3 times. That's it. And make it so one taunt or joke has to finish before playing another. I don't see why Hi-Rez can allow this massively irritating system to stay in place and their only response is "mute them" Fix the system. It would literally hurt nobody. If you're one of the people who just like to spam shit to spam it then do it when no one is around and then no one would complain about it.
    It's not annoying, it's literally there for that exact reason, they also put a cap on there to stop the spam. Your complaining about something that already has a perfect solution to. Wtf more do you want?

    Emotes are used to express feelings.
    Debatable.

    Emotes are legally allowed in Smite.
    There's nothing legal or illegal about that, since there are no laws involved here.

    Spamming Emotes 5 times in a row is legally allowed in Smite.
    See the above.

    It's not against Smite Terms of Service and ban/suspension policy.
    Not your call.

    It's not harassment and if it's harassment, it's much better than dozens worse words people can write.
    It CAN be harassment, depending on the circumstances. Also, "I can do worse" is a shite argument if you have to defend yourself. Just in case you find yourself in court one day.

    I've never felt offended if I died and someone reacted "VER VER VER" towards me.
    That's wonderful for you, now if only your personal emotions were in any shape or form relevant in questions of in-game offenses.

    Why do people react then like "report someone for ver spamming" if it's not actually against anything?
    Because generally speaking, people that are pissed off are not known for making level-headed and/or fact-based decisions.

    Counter-question: Why do you care? As long as you are not actually getting punished for anything they can report you for anything they like.

    it is literately hurting nobody already... and someone would complain anyway. I dunno how or why, but they would.
    case and point... you exist (supposedly), and you're complaining.

    Smite's suspension/ban policy says nothing about VGS spam. Just harassment. Considering their is a mute function and the VGS system does not allow someone to spam something more than 5 times, this not being harassment is a logical conclusion.

    The time has come to change International Law to the law of Interplanetary peoples. They live among us, we among them. It's time for a change in power.

    Most of the time I have no idea what in the hell I'm talking about, but when it comes to Smite, you can count on me to make shit up and hope for the best.

    Ah, if only it WAS bannable.
    Along with those retards who spam toggle their skills to create constant noise cues. Thoth, Mercury and AMC come to mind. The Mute button does nothing against that.

    As I said before, spamming can constitute harassment, it depends on the situation. The decision whether that applies or not lies with the HiRez-employee who gets the ticket served, hence my original statement "Not your call". You can speculate all day long about what should or would be, sure but the decision ultimately lies with someone else.

    The existence of the mute function has no effect on that decision. If I call you a whoreson and you subsequently mute me that doesn't change the fact that I insulted you. The mute function stops you perceiving harassment, it doesn't erase harassment that already occured, nor does it stop the offender to continuously trying to harass you and/or somebody else.

    No one's going to get banned for using VGS because there's nothing harassing about it.

    I love all the people saying "just mute them", etc, who completely overlooked my response on how that doesn't work on PS4. You have no choice but to listen to it during the game, and so your only recourse against that person is to report them post-match. I had a Clash game where two of my teammates got into a VGS war with one another (I think one picked up a buff the other wanted) that lasted the entire match. From a minute in or so until the end, one or the other saying "Thanks", "You rock", "I'm the greatest", "No", "Yes", etc, etc. I think I'm allowed to consider that harassment.

    because if they are muted you cant actually hear real calls which is what the system is designed for. Case in point is that, the system is there for a purpose to help make fast calls. Its not there to be annoying.
