PvP-Anonymity

As people can see, the toxicity and stupid whisper-players are already a big part of PvP itself.
In the leaderboard u can see the peoples Account-Names, but not the numbers behind. This way u cant just whisper them whenever u like, even if u really wanna insult them.

Why cant we take this Anonymity form the leaderboard into normal pvp rounds? Just seeing Accountnames, but not giving the opportunity to let bad,salty,arrogant,..... players write and spam to anyone in/after the round, would be an improvement (even if its only a tiny one) to pvp imo.

    Mute is in the game for a reason.

    One you have a filter that will block bad words if you do get a whisper. Two you have block which I use all the time so much so in 2 v 2 I had to unblock teammates temporarily in case they talked. Three if words upset you so much where you need to change a system because some random stranger saying your a scrub or bad or noob then idk what to tell you. I do get aggravated and talk back some days but it's mostly insta block. I also used to think WvW was anonymous but you can block/friend then whisper/mail etc which surprised me the 1st time I got trash talk from opposite team.

    Another "I don't like people talking to each other, remove their ability to talk to each other" post... What if you want to ask someone their build, advice, invite them to your guild etc. You'd also eliminate good communication with the bad.

    Hard pass.

    It's not my intention to minimize a legitimate issue. However, I disagree with your solution. I am always polite, tolerant of the "competitiveness" of others, and I don't get angry about losing fights or matches. I'm also perfectly capable of using block/report if other players can't get themselves under control. In practice, I add far more players to my contact list than I do to my block list.

    PvP is mostly a neutral (low-to-no communication) experience for me, with frequent positive interactions (from a simple gg/gf to guild invites, to offers to duel, discussions about build and strategy after the match, etc.), and the rare player that earns a block. I find that even if players get a little salty at first, if I respond with the opposite they usually calm down and respond in kind.

    I don't mean to make any assumptions about you, but if your experience is different there are probably some reasons why. If you aren't doing it already, perhaps try responding to the next insult not with an insult, but by telling them how they fought well and asking them about their build? I know it's sort of backing away from a challenge or whatever, but if it produces better outcomes it would be worth it, right?

    I'd rather they gave us some incentive to actually behave properly instead of punishing misbehaviour.

    Not sure if others have this happen to them often, but I get salty/rude messages once a blue moon. If someone is being a jerk in game, either to our team or to the enemy team, I block them and move on.

    To all the "just block" answeres
    Some people actually arent interested in getting insulted, block and then just to get whispered by a second accound or by friends of those salty kids.

    And the insult-filter doesnt work if most people cant concentrate on grammar while going enrage

    Yeah just block the 2nd accounts too. Like really dude this can't happen so often where you did nothing and a guy whispers insults and you block then that guy logs onto another account to send an email. Like even some cheese build doesn't inspire that much effort. So block move on don't whisper back then block or w/e that get's these guys salty. I no longer buy your just some poor innocent dude

    Actually im quite impressed by how many people do that. They put more effort in flaming&insulting than into the real pvp-match.
