players using trade requests to kick oponent out of match to run the clock down
players using trade requests to kick their opponent out of match to run the clock down. Had my opponent request a trade with me, which kicked me out of the swiss draft i was in. wasted enough time for me to lose the match.
Unable to repro preventing votes on this issue is counterproductive. I'll open a new bug report as this deserves more attention.
When streamers are broadcasting events using magic online, their opponent's name is unintentionally leaked without either streamer's or their opponent's consent. Malicious parties can (and have, are) using that information to spam trade requests to opponents, impacting their game experience and creating a negative association with the streamer and experience for all with the game client.
There is a feature for individuals to disable trade requests from unknown parties, but this option is set to most open possible by default, and opponents don't necessarily know they need to set this because they are playing against a streamer.
Please revisit the decision "UNABLE TO REPRO", as this is more than a client-impacting option. If you can instead reclassify this as a feature request for one of the following, please do so:
1. Disable the option to receive trades not from friends by default
2. Create a streamer mode, allowing players to set the client to hide all indications of opponent's name. This will have to extend to other parts of the mtgo ecosystem as well (not providing detail here to prevent additional abuse)
3. Implement a decaying timer that prevents players from initiating trades (to the same recipient, perhaps) after repeated declining of requests within a short period. Preferably flag accounts that trigger this for review and potential banning.
