Abusing the report system in Rbg (Name)

Battlegrounds
DISCLAIMER: Don't go after these guys on the clips in general, its about the issue itself and not the specific players.

So I was playing RBGs with some friends earlier today and we came upon this team

Basically, the game started out by their tank dcing, leading to the other team thinking we did report the tank for name, however the tank came back with the same name. Meaning that he didn't get reported for name and just had a regular dc.
Name of the tank before "dc"

Name of the tank after "dc":

Anyhow, after this happened they started reporting everyone in our team, the guy we faced even admitted it here:

Anyway after they started reporting everyone they also jumped out of the map, just to mention another bs thing that happens on Twin Peaks:

On this clip you can also hear them laughing that someone in our team dc'd

As you can see on this clip:

At 30s the streamer hovers one of my teammates names and the "Report" -> "Name", however he doesn't do it but it proves the entire point of them discussing/doing it.

Here's also a picture of peoples names in 2s 3s and rbg over the last few days:

An obvious sign that people are abusing this system

Here is a clip of the streamer talking about the situation of the DH jumping on the roof, confirming it once more while also
This has been seen happening before, as you can see on the frontpage:

This clip shows some people reporting an entire team for name and you can later see everyone getting disconnected.

To sum it all up, i'm not trying to specifically call these people out for being the only people doing it, however it is a problem I've heard of quite a bit the last couple of days but I didn't believe it would happen to me. There needs to be something done about it.

I literally never play Rbg and was trying to have fun with some friends but that didn't go so well as soon as people in my team started getting dc'd and banned for 24h.

Hope this gets some attention and get fixed.
Nothing will happen. They never get banned. Check their armory after 2 weeks and watch them still playing.

I have a list of 30 ppl that i have reported with screenshots and mass reports from entire teams and i can still see them active. Especially if they r russians.

They suck them big time.
Looks like u can cheat as much as u want and nothing will happen to u.. unbelievable..
@raiden you say that but I think this will be 6 month ban for many ppl, hopefully.
Pathetic losers. I hope they all get perms banned
How is it not specific players? its their decision to abuse the bug .. kreamy please

I had a player like 3 years ago that was cursing mothers and families in bg for over 10 mins wishing for death cancer etc.

2 screenshots mass report talked to gm and the guy was still playing up a year ago last time i checked. THEY BAN NOONE. Their sub count is low that they dont have the balls to do it.

Honorbuddy had over 200k registered proven users and buyers. Did u ever hear that 200k got banned for any reason? Maybe they will ban 100-200 ppl here and there but the abusing in all forms of game is over 20% of the total player base. They r simply to scared to take actions.

And all that cause of the !@#$ coding of the game allowing things that should not be allowed cause %^-* coders are !@#$.
This is skill. If you can't beat them join them. If Blizzard haven't fixed this for 6 season I think It is safe to assume that those aren't exploit. Just people are too afraid to step up to the next level meta game.

Very compelling gameplay where all class mechanics are now disabled and it is a race to employ the largest amount of scripts, external software and tertiary DoS attacks to stay competitive. Have you ever stopped to think why game tournaments are played offline?

This isn't a coding issue lol. This is some pleb in middle management trying to save on administrative costs.
AHAHAHA SPONK XDDD
How could the responsible of Blizzard approve the idea of making people be able to massreport others to force them off the game? I thought it meant that Blizzard would maybe silence a player off a tradechat and investigate, but KICKING players out of the * game?

I am going to say i dont blame everyone of Blizzard about this (i love Blizzard devs that have PASSION), its propably that they made someone loving to browse in twitter and facebook the allowance to toy with parts of the game with the same functions of social media without thoughts about what might happen. Because ive seen similar functions in social media too and it AINT working. People just massreports posts and vids to put them down for absolutely no reason. But THIS is a game you pay for, its even more mindblowing that they put this in the game.

You know what, i think this is a bug. I dont think it was their intention to make the report system like this. There is no way someone could actually say yes to putting punishing powers to regular players in a game. I usually understand mistakes that people make but here i am trying to figure out HOW they managed to say yes to this feature.
