Hereby i withdraw my application for personal reasons. I apologize to everyone who was taking its part in the evaluation process and apologize to those who had faith in me and wanted me as a master on the server.
Been playing this game for several years now. Early nicks were: KImre,turulHAARP maybe some of you remember them on Demophobia.
I would say i'm finally pretty good at the game so i can make non-biased decisions in regard if somebody is using a non-allowed tool or not. Other reason is that i play on Rigatony a lot and sometimes there is/are cheater(s) or a griefer on the server but no auth available(this happened today as well...). In those cases me having auth would come in handy. No,i'm not gonna share the key with anybody,don't want to get myself into trouble.
Those are my reasons for the application. Hoping for the best.
Thanks for reading.
In my opinion before going further with any changes a robust and working autobalance should be implemented.
The number one cause of fast 10-0 games are imbalanced teams most of the time. Then the second most common cause is the map itself. For example i could singlehandedly decide matches on face-capture once i managed to get into the enemy base then i just had to pass,pass,pass and that's it,zero teamwork was involved.I just needed to find a teammate any time when i wanted to pass from the enemy base. However getting into the enemy base was a lot harder if not impossible when the teams were properly balanced and at those times the score reflected it and the game in these cases ended with something like 1-0,2-0,1-1 so very few scores with little to no difference(i'm talking about full range passing here).
Although full range passing opened up some interesting gameplay elements and strategies it also greatly reduced the need for teamwork which is really weird in a mode like CTF. The reduced range on passing feels okay i would say as it does reduce the imbalance but as others said less skilled players may struggle with it but then again they just need to git gud just as i did when there were no rugby on demophobia and had to haul my ass from the enemy base to ours.
The swapped bases however were a good direction in my opinion as it encouraged teamwork and scoring required a pack like movement from everyone to defend the carrier. Selectively activating this mode on some maps may help. Restricting passing in another way than range would make it inconsistent rather i don't see a good way to do it other than range.
All in all properly balanced teams should be the first and foremost goal to achieve with full range passing to see how the overall scores on maps change. I would say 1 month is needed at least or even more to gather enough data.
And no i don't know a good way to implement such a system as i didn't tackle such problem before thus i can't give any idea regarding this either. But based on the data that is available on sauertracker already i think it could work.
I rushed to IRC immediately after the ban and he wrote the following things:
Dec 17 18:29:10 <Fearer> but my auth is in our intern forum so maybe someone thought it was fun to use it:D
Dec 17 18:31:04 <Fearer> i published everything in our intern forum and i dont care if they use these things to kick people:D
Dec 17 18:31:08 <Tengrichan> so you are sharing auth passwords with others?
Dec 17 18:31:10 <Fearer> thats why i published it there
Dec 17 18:31:11 <Tengrichan> nice
Dec 17 18:31:15 <Fearer> so that they can have some fun
Dec 17 18:31:21 <Fearer> indeed
Dec 17 18:31:27 <Fearer> just with my clanmates
The important parts.The other parts of me ranting at him.
I can't speak on behalf the community but i can assure you i did not do anything to him that warrants a ban against me.
His reasons were something like i played suspiciously good and that's it.
I see.Shame he can still do this.
Why does he or his clan still have auth on the server?Isn't it time to take it away from him/them?
So recently i was playing again on the server under the name lewdLoli and Fear banned me yet again.
Can somebody already take auth away from him and his clan?He even admitted on IRC he shared auth password.
By the way i have demos that i did not cheat or anything.It was him again who banned me and this was NOT the first time either.
Also if he has any reason or proof i would like to see it as i have been recording my games since the last ban from him.
