Incessant Map Pings

Map pings are a great and useful tool, but please do something about people being able to non stop spam them in the various match maker activities. Add a cooldown for reuse, or total max pings per run, let us cross server block, or something.

Just had a Guardian Raid where one person was unhappy with how we were fighting the boss so they just non-stopped pinged the map for a minute. Finally had to run from the fight, turn off audio, and just try to ignore the pings on screen.

Agree. A cooldown is already present but it’s too forgiving.

This is especially bad during guardian raids and abyssal dungeons. Party communication is important, but this feature is often used incorrectly, or simply to troll.

There has to be an option like in other game to individually mute teammate’s pings if they’re annoying.

That way they don’t know you muted their pings and won’t get even more toxic.

Ping 1 : Player 0

I mean that just meant the player who spamming ping is childish.

Can always remove headset instead of quitting though

this still needs to be addressed, not a fun experience to have no recourse. I’ve just been taking debuff for dropping group. give us a way to block as to not matchmake with these people

The danger ping is pretty jarring. Hearing it over and over on every mechanic was not fun. Coupled with spamming regular pings for no communicated reason is completely ridiculous.

please give us a way to block/report cross server.

or just ability to turn off map pings. with chat you can at least just filter it but you can’t stop the folks who feel the need to ping 100x per second
