Server Infiltrated by ASSHATs today

Post by LtDan on Tue Dec 02, 2014 3:38 pm

Lost of idiots on site today.

Users masquerading as Warlord and Dahmer, using AIMBOTS.

User ETPlayer probably one of the above, advertising with:
|HOJ| Inhuman+ you are invited to a better server than this one.
The server address was 188.165.225.140/27965

Finally, some clown named UniQueSh!T28 team killing on CTF (possibly others) can confirm with cybershot and Sarah.  Possibly others too.  I left.

I banned 2 hackers and one rusher today. It's clean now. If there is more I'll keep on banning Smile

I was in the game that day and must admit that it was rather annoying having a teammate blast me with the panzer (or whatever it's called). I also don't understand that when asked politely, why teams cannot be automatically shuffled so that they are balanced. There have been times when it was 2 vs 6 and I pleaded with the dominant team to switch a couple players to even up sides... and my requests went ignored. I even PM'd a member to no avail.

When teams are balanced it's more fun... in my opinion. Don't you think playing as a "team" is more fun (and certainly more effective) than playing solo? Whenever two players work together to secure the objective it's more likely that there'll be a team victory. To me it's more that just seeing how many players I can kill in any given map. Call me crazy...

I agree with all of that ... people just killing or the chronic team-stacking common to a few players (you know who you are) is quite annoying.  Most annoying for me, is as you say, when people refuse to balance after they're requested to do so.  

I do like the Kitchen map as a break from objectives and doing just that, killing as many as you can.

I hate to say that I have become a !shuffle maniac lately. Only after a few requests and warnings though. I just don't do it randomly. Again always seem to be the same players doing the stacking. Some are members of sites that force balanced teams and should now better. I would upload some screenshots if I could figure how to and let those who do it know we know who you are. There are a couple of non clan players who will switch though. There are sites out there that force even balance and Admins will move a non clan member to balance teams. Only clan members are allowed to switch when teams are balanced though. Mainly to strengthen the weaker team.

What's with X-ratednext? Does this player not understand the concept of balancing teams? I've asked numerous times to switch teams but was completely ignored. Is English not the native language for this player? One would think with all the XP they have, they would understand balancing teams.

There are those who will only play on certain sides for certain maps. They know this is an open site and can play wherever they want to. these are the types that when applying for membership wonder why they get shot down. If a shuffle is done they will move back to the original team they were on before the shuffle nullifying the shuffle. Not much we can do I am sad to say.

I like a good shuffle - not sure why it doesn't happen more often.  The thing is team strength fluctuates wildly with people dropping out unexpectedly during games.  The killer is when newly joining players don't check the rosters before joining in.  I think more frequent shuffles would send a pretty clear message, and would make for more enjoyable games.

Thanks to OldMan and some of the other FBYers for keeping an eye on this (Arctic Fox is another !shuffler).

I always check the roster before entering a map, maybe that's just me, but I like to see who I'm competing against and which team needs another player. I like the shuffle and would not object to more shuffling during any game. Not only does it make the field more balanced, but it allows you to see what kind of teamwork you can develop with different players. Again, this is just my opinion.

I know there are a number of younger players who may not think the same way and play the game more autonomously, enjoy the kill, and ignore the objectives... but my style of gaming is more like working as a cohesive team, mirroring military strategy. The interactivity between members of a team is THE one unique aspect of ET as an online game that keeps me coming back. (Not to mention the personalities of some of the members of FunBoy server! OK, I'm addicted.)

I believe I was the losing team : ))



Next time I won't hesitate to shuffle, today it was just me.

First of all- nice graphics!  Mine are dumbed down to the point where the game looks more like Minecraft...

I think the Old Man / Ebola approach where they point out the unbalanced teams and ask players to switch before dropping the hammer is pretty effective.

The thing that has to be watched is when you do a shuffle the high xp player may end up with a couple of lower xp individuals where the other team is all experienced decent xp players putting the other team now at a disadvantage.

I think the shuffle is based on xp and really make a mess even worse than it was. That is why I ask all the try to balance the teams a couple of time before I do a shuffle. Sometimes it works and at times it doesn't. And you can't prevent some of the players switching back as I witnessed earlier. Those are the players I make note on when they moan about teams or want to become a member.

I sure am glad Magda posted that screenshot ... it shows 3 of about 4 or 5 players who are the same annoying players who constantly team-stack (even with requests to balance teams).  Magda on the other hand is bold enough to stand alone.

@ OneOldMan: Does a player's XP on this server really influence play or give an advantage to some players? I heard that on some servers the server/platform has been tweaked in a way that cancels out any advantage a high XP might have over a lower player's XP.

BTW, props to Magda1990 for the screenshots. That's good evidence for calling out a repetitive offender.

XP really doesn't give much of an advantage to the good players. I go on every so often with no XP and am still able to play at the same level. If you put 5 good players on ones side and 10 average players with high XP I give odds on the 5. Shuffle I think does it by XP so some times it makes no difference depending who is playing.

I was playing one time with no xp and owning allies spawn during goldrush and got specced and recorded and then posted as a possible hack. No, xp, I think makes no difference.

I think that anytime there is an off balance situation we should have a thread to post screenshots to let people know who the biggest offenders are and hopefully it isn't an admin.

Or we can police ourselves somewhat... if everyone would just hit TAB before the start of a map/game and check to see the balance, we could basically shuffle ourselves to make teams even. Perhaps no one really checks before/during gameplay... just a thought. I know if I'm getting creamed I hit TAB while in limbo and see what the teams look like. (I get creamed a lot BTW !!!)
