"Server Hoggers."

Postby ACCELERATOR - - on Mon Feb 16, 2015 1:50 pm

So, for future reference, what do we do with these?

I've encountered two in the last month involving a number of people demanding others get off the server for various reasons. One stating they wanted to team practise and they were using UKCS servers, and another (Today) telling me to get off #4 via mic because they were achievement farming. Since Admins aren't usually online at the times i bump into these (Either late night or early morning), what do i need do to make admins aware of these, bluntly put, arseholes.

you should maybe get a demo/screenshot and a steam id. but maybe more importantly you can apply for Votekick status to deal with problems when there are no admins on

they're clearly idiots trying to use a pub for practice. for a start, to play on the same team they have to stack which isn't allowed. lol at using a pub for practice. it just won't help much as casual players do not play like league players. tell them to go to TF2pickup and stop being foolish.
as Hagz says take a screen if their steam id's using STATUS in the console [~]. also, you could just mute the player(s) if there is no admins responding.

Take Steam IDs and screenshots. There's not much that can be done if it's happening at times when admins aren't online apart from logging it and forwarding it on.

That's hilarious. If any of it is text based then do PM me names / times / server and i will look into it :)

I've caught a few before. The best ones are the ones who claim to own the server!
