    How to deal with false reports?

    So recently I've been getting false reported so much by premades, and it's scaring me. I don't understand what to do, are they really gonna ban me for false reports?

    I need help.

    If they type something like "report [...] for playing bad" in an obvious malicious and dishonest manner, report them back. That's explicitly mentioned as an offense in Hi-Rez Studios' Terms of Service and Use:

    The following list of prohibited conduct is for illustrative purposes only and is a non-exhaustive list of potential violations of this Agreement. You will be deemed to have violated this Agreement if you (or others using your Account) do any of the following:

    [...]

    Improperly use game support or complaint buttons or make false reports to Hi-Rez staff members.
    Anyway, you won't get banned from a few false reports. Ignore it.

    False reports have been a problem for a lot of us for a long time now. Hopefully Hirez will do something about it soon.

    I got reported alot for being a bad player. It mostly happens when i got matched to play with experienced players. Is there any way to defend myself in such situations?

    People dont often report you for no reason. If you get reported, usually you have done something to piss someone off, and yes deliberately going out of your way to upset your teammates is absolutely reportable, and is not "a false report" as so many like to claim. Instigating is not okay. If you played poorly dont worry, everyone plays poorly from time to time, unless you basically didn't try at all. I kid you not, a couple of weeks ago I played an 18 minute game of arena and 3 out of 4 of my team mates did less than 12 k player damage, and 2 of them did less than 10k player damage, and they had the gull to shit talk me, the person with by far the highest player damage on the team (by 2.5x). In a case like that, whoever reviews the reports is not likely to be so lenient.

    Basically if you actually try to play the game, and dont talk shit to your teammates and don't go out of your way to be rude to them or instigate an argument and you will avoid getting reported.

    Personally, i have my doubts about just how many people get banned to begin with. Lots and lots of people earn their reports, but you have to wounder just how many reports hi rez actually reads. Certainly not all of them, there are far too many to do that. Dont get me wrong, sure some people get banned, but I dont think its as many as we would like to believe, i mean just look at how bad the conquest community is. I see threads all the time here and on reddit about how toxic conquest players are to each other. Thankfully other game modes dont have quite as much shenanigans but still.

    for few years wich i play i was reported billion times for troll builds, for trolling, for harrasing, for hacks, for addanyreasonhere and didnt was banned , you know why? because people abuse report for any reason, cuz they are mad/bad/just dont like you/can , if hi rez will ban everyone for no reason they will start lose people, they ll lose credit, money, popularity, authority, you think they will exchange their reputation to people who false reporting, really thinks so? ye? YE?!!!

    Try play a bit safe and passive its better then to feed. Other then that if the discussion starts, say its not your fault the matchmaking screwed you over.
