    I think the report buttons do work as you can get banned for real life threats and too much anger.

    They wouldn't care about someone raging over a game, but if someone is harassing/making real life threats, then that would probably be a problem.

    Also reporting someone for that kind of thing is pretty dumb. You can use block communications, it prevents you from being matched up against them in addition to blocking them.

    Even so, how real are real life threats? If someone pays attention how the human brain works, it is clearly momentary anger that cools off in 10 minutes or so. But I agree that's the case where Blizz may take actions probably depending on how harsh an insulting or threatening is.

    But im 1000% certain there are some who used the report button over smth like just rage and those are just really dumb. And not like it will do anything cause Blizzard see what it's about.

    Heh, back in SCBW I was playing a dodge game, and was accused of using latency hacks for the entire game by this one dude.

    It was all
    Him: bro you hack, hacking sux man
    Me: I don't hack, hackers are lame.
    Him:(after I stay out for ages and ages) BRO STOP HACKING YOU LAME
    etc, until he finally ragequitted.

    Me and my real.life friend where doing some hardcore 2v2, and where on a winning-streak. At the start of a game my friend had computer-problems and lagged out. We dicided to let me play the game out for both of us. He was zerg, and I random-Toss. Ofc. they thought 2v1 was an easy win, but long story short, I pwned them both alone, and they called me a fucking newb, because they were sure that our tactic was that my friend would leave at game-start. I have no idea how this makes any sense, but they were pretty pissed x) no "gg"

    I was doing on of my placement matches, and was on a nice 3-win streak using a simple viking rush (Since the bases are blocked by rocks at the start) and finally got put against a rather.... challenging opponent. The whole game I had scouted his base with my orbital, and he had a small army of marines and a few medivacs, something that my 10+ vikings and 3 medivacs full of marines could handle for my rush. I attacked, but got pushed back out by a missle turret and a planetary fortress that was at his expansion. So, I setup a network of radar towers, and find an expansion. I revealed it, and hes got atleast 15 battle cruiseres and variose ground forces. I threw everything at him but couldn't get past him.

    The worst part was he made it sound like he had just installed the game too, something that I had been worrying about, since most people would play against AI or something first.

    Because it sounded like an easy win that turned into a very, very ugly mess for me

    Something tells me you didn't actually read the OP, or any other post in this thread for that matter...

    This one time I was against a guy who was playing Terran. I can't remember the map, but he loaded his Command Center and settled on one of the islands.

    He tried building battlecruisers, but I had him surrounded by then. He started spamming missile turrets then, trying to keep any air out. I teleported over with stalkers and started destroying everything.

    He swore at me then left.

    Haha for the first time I got actual blablabla insults:

    He is 700 wins/loss and still Gold xD This reminds me of being level 25-30 on 250-300-400++ wins in war3 which is as bad as this and all cases they really sucked, so no joke that too many games low league/level is L-o-w. But you have to be careful, they do play, just very weak.

    Him: Players like you make terran look bad
    Me: you're so skilled
    Him: you're a noob
    Me: you're bigger
    him: f*** your mom

    Then he starts flying buildings over the Lost Temple to prove his retardness.

    And guess - I didn't report him. I don't care about shit like that, I've also felt angry over some losses felt like typing to him. In fact I have trashtalked years ago, now I don't do it. Not that I can't say anything, just I don't insult like that.

    What Pros do: I take example from them, they don't reply at all like when lalush starts trashtalking. I should't have too.

    But in his bla bla he said something that I also got pissed about - TvT has turned into who will mass more sieged tanks around the enemy or the xel naga tower and then you just wait each other do causious attacks and holds and nothing, same boring thing 30 minutes + every game, I also lost like that some games..
