Rule change?

Post by EDS Martyn » November 17th, 2012, 5:17 pm

Hey Guys

I'm not the only one who thinks this, been asking around to hear other peoples view.

I would like you guys to change the bot to kick anyone that has over 300ping. It does it now but only when its 90% full? Not sure if its that but could we please make it that it's constantly on?

There are so many players nowadays that lag so much that its impossible to kill them without a shotgun at point blank..

Anyone got any comments about it?

I don;t see that happening. I think doing that would pretty much be banning most players from eastern Europe and such places. I doubt we want to do that.

Just looking at it from a different perspective, the game is now very old and the number of players has dropped significantly. Just looking at the figures for today, we never had more than 40 people logged on at any given moment (that's on a weekend) and the average for the day was in the order of 20 players - and not all those are playing, they are just logged in to the server.

If you decide to kick all those that offend your ping limit you will probably see the server population drop to an average of <15 for the day… lets face it, playing with only 5-7 per team is not a hell of a lot of fun and people will leave rather than stick around with so little competition.

this is why an admin has discretion to remove connected players that arent playing or observing.. ( I usually wait 2 rounds to remove them).
If they are ingame playing, too bad deal with it. the bot will get rid of them at the appropriate moment.

The levels of leaving people connected based on ping and number of connects, is the ONLY way to help in maintaining server occupancy levels.

In case people haven't noticed, we are NO LONGER ranked number one, now we are number 5.

That is why it is imperative to let the spectators stay. They add to server population totals/Ranking.

As for the -1 players.... they are in disconnect. There is no active data being sent or received by those players,
so leaving them is a non-issue as well.

Ping times are very generous, and need to be to help in keeping the population level.
Remember on the server, anti_lag=1, so it's time compensated for on ONLY the lagged players' side.

A player with a higher ping time is not a problem AND IT DOES NOT slow the server down. ONLY YOUR internet
connection does that. Even me, with a ping of 60, can see lag based on whats in my route to the server and back, and
what my wife/son are doing on their machines.

At NO TIME should someone be kicked out of spectate.
