  • [NEW] Teamkilling Punishments Increased

    Hello,

    Teamkilling has always been an issue, but historically has been a more harmless nuisance than something that has an actual effect on the game. Well, with population decline and the advent of super-cancer-dick-trolls, teamkilling is one of many ways that we are seeing people ruin the game for others time and time again. Especially when known staff members are not online or are clearly AFK - shocker. Anyway, we have seen first hand and had too many reports of the same players taking an 8v8 or 12v12 pub game and reducing it to nothing within a matter of 10-15 minutes.

    With that said, we have opted to increase our punishments for TKing. I have always tried to be very transparent here so that there are no surprises, and in the interest of that, I will literally post verbatim from our manual yet again:

    -------

    The penalty for team-killing is:1st offense Issue a warning to the player
    2nd offense BanC (!superspec) for 3 hours
    3rd offense BanC (!superspec) for 6 hours
    4th offense BanC (!!uperspec) for 9 hours
    5th offense BanC (!superspec) for 18 hours
    6th+ offense BanC (!superspec) for 36 hours
    Further amounts at Ban Op's discretion.

    -------

    OK - so now we all know what the mainstream punishments will be. For those who don't know, a "superspec" locks you out of any bombing ships (shark, javelin, levi) but allows you to play the other ships.

    Full disclosure: I have in the past and plan to in the future continue to issue extremely long superspecs and even issue zone bans for people who can't seem to stop giggling about TKing while ruining games for everyone else. I have had several players serve out superspecs that last into the tens of thousands of minutes (and that is active gameplay time, not AFK in spec). So, if you all notice any serial assholes out there who may need to take a month or so off of bombing ships and perhaps even a few days on the beach all together, please let me or Doughnut know directly. We will not take action based on your word alone, but said asshole will be on our radar going forward.

    Any questions, post here or find me in-game under alias "tucker".

    How are you going to determine what counts and what doesn't?
    For example, I get hassled by the bot on a regular basis because it thinks I'm TKing - but the real scenario is I just made a multikill beneficial to my team, e.g. including the enemy terr, which happened to also include a team mate, e.g. a shark who needed killing to get fresh reps anyway.

      We only punish for intentional teamkilling we see with our eyes - never with only what a bot is telling us. It is supplemental and helpful information, but never serves as a standalone basis for a punishment.
