How To File A Report On A Troll / Griefer
UP TOP ---> Click on Your Profile Name

Go Down to ---> Friends

Third Tab Over Click ---> Recently Played With
(sometimes it takes a few minutes for Recently Played With people to load. So if it's blank, give it a few minutes then go back, recent player's should start to pop up.. Be patient)

Look For Offenders Profile Name ---> Click It to get Into their Profile

Doesn't matter if it is set to Private, you can still file the report.

Once you are in the Offender's Profile

Look to the Right ---> See the box that says: MORE

Click It --> Go to --> REPORT VIOLATION

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Click the appropiate violation and describe the incident, i.e. Shooting players, deleting props, foul language, asked to stop and would not, ect. Then click SUBMIT.

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

The same player joined a game I was in two different times tonight and was a complete TROLL each time. Even after being asked to stop. Myself and the other player's had to KICK him just so we could enjoy the game peacefully. So I ended up filing two reports.

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

There is no reason anyone should have to tolerate being ABUSED by another player in any way.

Will it make any difference?

Reported a teamkiller half a year ago along with my 2 other teammates.
I dont think Valve did any sanction against him.

I've heard teamkillers/trolls brag about having thousands of hours of just doing that. I really doubt anything actually happens.

There's no way of getting them banned from VAC for doing that. It's the server host's problem and you should report it to them.

Orrrr you could just block them.

can we report a clueless 5 year old player? i think they ignore all reports has been made.

a clueless 5 year old player is a team player too.

Watching someone jumping through hoops that a developer put there is like repeating the same action again and again, and expecting a different result.

We're all pebbles in a torrent of water moving in one direction; don't believe anyone who tells you that "you can make a difference" while in it.

The only difference you make is when you're not there anymore.
Strange, isn't it.

When people encounter trolls - especially groups of trolls - please block them and report them as well. We have been going through and penalizing players who have shown consistent negative behavior.

And no, action is not only taken based on reports alone but other data the reporter has no control over. Reporting just lets us elevate some of the data from the noise.

Closing troll groups and removing privileges from those who use them to harass is very satisfying. Having them mail support complaining they didn't do anything and why did we take action against them? Priceless.

We are working on additional tools and automated behavior on the backend but until that is complete (and probably even then), reporting someone and/or someone's group really helps us look at the biggest offenders.

thanks

This is Valve's spokesman btw.

I would also recommend reporting them to server groups as primary simple option.

Blocking wont do good, they cant add you as friend and cant leave a message on your profile, thats all.

I blocked a few people and they still join to my games.

True..... the "BLOCKING" option is a JOKE!
