Doesn't spawnkilling mean when a player is killing the enemy players within the flag radius? It should be okay if they are killing players near the enemy base.

Flag radius is only few blocks, so no, killing right outside of that range is still considered spawnkilling.

They might be in the wrong order.

He'll probably never be banned, i reported a player doing the same thing, and after a staff member went online to confirm this, they told me it would be unfair to ban them as "liquid physics are different for android players". In reality that statement is false, I've played on the android client before, and liquid physics were no different then if i was on my PC. Don't believe me?, try it out for yourself (you can find the app on F-droid or Google-Play).

BTW: Chem, no offense, but you rlly need to start organizing your inventory/hotbar better, it'll make you much more efficient if you create a system for it.

So how far do you need to be from the enemys spawn?

From my experience these players are never banned, as usually when it happens there aren't any staff members online, and if they are, the spawnkilling has almost always stopped before they can check for themselves :/.

Spawn-Killing = excessively killing players right after their re-spawn immunity has faded, typical within 0-15 blocks from their flag.

If you see someone go and kill 3 or 4 players in an enemie's re-spawn area, that is not an offense IMO. HOWEVER if they have been doing it over and over again then it is likely a kick/ban will occur. [Provided a staff member has been made aware]

Please keep in mind there will be variations of this and Moderators/Admins will use their own judgement and common sense to decide whether someone needs banning or not.

Also keep in mind that no staff member is 100% perfect at moderating. This [obviously] is the case, so you don't need to get upset at moderators and tell them that they do not ban people who have been cheating/hacking to everyone else.

I shall repeat meself:

DragonsVolcanoDance wrote:For everyone who wants to know what to do when one team is getting completely spawn-killed, do /report <name> <Crime Committed> if there is a moderator in-game. They'll see the message, and if they're not too busy with other things they will investigate the person. If there's no moderator/admin in game, it is very likely there will be some on IRC. It's best to PM the moderators/admins, for most of the time they are AFK and too busy to watch the game chat which flies by at 80 MPH. This is easily done by doing /irc_msg <NAME> <MESSAGE> Tell the moderator the player's name and their supposed crime, and they will investigate the player when they have time.


It will do a world of good if you just tell the staff member the name of the suspect - then they know who to spy on later when they see that player online. Chem871 did this, and rest assured if I see that name I will spy on them.

You full well know that switching teams is against the rules, as it messes the game up and confuses everybody. You basically become a traitor to your original team, and just because someone else is breaking another rule such as spawn-killing doesn't give you permission to break rules as well.

I think two words pretty much sum up my thinking on this: Robin-Hood

Just saw this and i have one question, and its not what you'd expect! Whats up with the word-wrapping?:
Image
*EDIT: Oh and what does it mean by "Managing to get back in-game"? Ive never rebooted my router to login before my ban was over, Never.

*EDIT2: Could you make an exception for all accounts starting with "Squishy" for the ip-ban? Those were my sisters acounts, she likes to play CTF every now and then and id hate for her to not be able to just because i was a Vigilante.

Anyways its been a good 3(+?) years on CTF, and i wish a good future to the server and its players, goodbye.

Would someone care to reply to this? I might be gone but i still want these issues resolved!
Stix wrote:Here's a suggestion: what if teams where divided based on rankings? There could be "ranking-points" and the higher up on the rankings you are, the more ranking points you have, and the server could try to divide teams evenly based on these points.

Anyways, id like some feedback on this idea, so if you have a couple minutes to spare write me a reply!

This is to prevent siblings and other such types of players from being locked to the same team just because they are connected from the same IP.

Nicely done!

Stix, you make players breaking the rules that you win faster? Be fair please.
Your ideas doesn't make sense. You just want this because to being better? Do not change yourself. Stay good how you was. Don't make it more unfair. Your nonsense-ideas will never be voted.

You can try join the CTF again, but do not complain more than you need to make the game more awful/unfair.
Remember: You're just bad in CTF. Just Agree.

Wanna be good in CTF again, buy a new PC. Your ideas won't help you and other players.

Managing to get back in-game = "When a temp-ban expires"

White-listing names is a remote possibility, since you yourself could login using the white-listed account. But FWIW, send a PM to rubenwardy regarding this.

Not necessary, all reports are sent to IRC moderators who've successfully subscribed to receiving reports.

that's because they put the wrong link
it should be this viewtopic.php?f=12&t=19729
but they put this viewtopic.php?f=12
you need the thread id in the link to get it work, don't remove them... xD

Ruben, what about adding the titanite mod?

Makes all tools upgradeable (not guns or other special tools, though).
Btw, Stix, I always have my sword at hotbar spot #7, and guns at #8. That's my only strategy, I don't feel like I need anything better.
