Fortunately I've had a lot of time to play STW since the last 3 months. I conducted this experiment during this period to test whether the report system works.
Since end of July, me and two other friends have been doing this thing where whenever we report a person, we mute them as well. So that the next time we run into them, we see the Muted icon and know they did something wrong in a mission before. I've done this report+mute thing 100-200 times in these 3 months.
And yet I've run into countless of the same people over and over in these months. I'm often doing a public mission when I see someone muted, and presto, that guy is seen spinning, farming or practising BR building in a corner of the map. I've even come to a point where I remember some of their names. This happens especially in vbuck alerts or alerts with good rewards such as perk up or legendary survivors.
Epic is lying. The report system really is a placebo. I don't care about the TEDDY Screen (I've only seen it once in this entire period, back in end of July), it's probably a placebo as well.
This game is really encouraging a toxic community. It's been one year since these complaints started. Read this post from one year ago by an Epic employee: https://www.reddit.com/r/FORTnITE/comments/71dd0q/what_are_we_working_on_for_save_the_world/
To the question of how we plan to address negative players.
First, we ban the serial offenders, then we build game mechanics that encourage all of us to be good to each other. We need to reward players for working together to complete game objectives.
This year we will add a karma system as a first step in creating rewards for being great to each other. The thumbs ups at end of game will be used to start each individual's karma. We’ll work to make it non-gameable. We don’t have all the details yet, design is in progress. Please send us your ideas via feedback on things we can tie good behavior to.

This isn't a new problem. They acknowledged it a year ago, and despite getting a lot of new players after BR exploded, they continue to let this pass. UI changes and flashy Battle Pass reskins mean nothing if the core co-op part of the game is so deeply flawed and ignored.
