  1. @Nicirinevery squad server auto-bans after 7 TK, as far as I'm aware that's hardcoded and can't even removed by admins if they'd like to at the current point of time. Don't blame server admins for that. Rather say thanks for providing servers to you and working every day on keeping them playable and a nice place for you. Which isn't true for Squad only, but for every other privately hosted server in any game. my 2 cents about TKs for drivers: that's even bigger BS, because then you'll have the scouts troll with mines at base exits or narrow roads everybody passes. They can even troll more than now then, because other people will be banned instead of themselves. And to be honest: I've seen more people laying troll-mines than people willingly driving over own ones. Even if it's serious gameplay where something like that happens - if you don't have to be afraid to TK someone with a badly placed mine, mines will end up being put everywhere without a thought and we'll end up with even more TKs and even less tactical improvement and "help" than nowaday, which in result will lead to negative experiences for even more people. Also... less enough people like to drive already now. If everybody's afraid of being auto-banned because they drove over a mine... that will not help with that situation. Squad is a tactical game and that's what we all like the most about it (if I may speak for most squaddies I know at least). That does, in my opinion, also include that mines need to be placed thoroughly thought through and not just put somewhere as kill-guarantee with some TK point subtractions in the minor grade. It's one tactical tool SLs and scouts have and they should use it correspondingly. That includes, in my eyes, a feeling about the responsibilty for their own mines - so, for example, that mines are dug out when the own team advantages to other flags to limit the possibility of friendly losses. TL;DR. So, concluding, do I find the mine-usage optimal? No! Do I think there needs to be changed something? Partly. Not with who gets TKs and IF anybody get's TKs as well. That's good as it is already now in my opinion. The attitude and approach of some players might be a bigger part of the problem here than the underlaying game mechanics. It's not Battlefield or CoD after all, still with mines some people tend to play it exactly as it. Having a hint for admins in the top left messages field that shows with what a TK was conducted with (it's already in the server logs, so it's already there - start using it...) and maybe the option to exclude weapons or categories from the auto-ban system... that would help a lot with that situation. Even for admins it's hard to tell sometimes and with the logs getting quite big these days, you only look through them when there's a real complain, because it can take several minutes to find out what really happened even if you exactly know "when" and "who". Apart from that - if you notice someone trolling with mines or willingly drives over own ones - report to an admin or mod of the said server immediately. They will be willing to help you if they're serious and try resolve the situation. my opinion. yours may differ.
  2. Du meinst Rising Storm 2? Komische Abkürzung Davon abgesehen - klar. Bin schon drauf gespannt!
  3. Whatever you say my friend.
  4. @WeiSS My friend, don't twist my words around like that. Also there is no need to get defensive. I wanted to say that I'm aware that it might be inappropriate to use SS in a user name. For sure it's depending on the intention and the meaning it should have. Especially on a German server with mostly German players it might look strange in the first place. You can understand that, can you? When I see such, I'm checking the user. I checked you, saw you apparently didn't use it for any "nono" intention, so that was it. Not more nothing less and for sure not any insults in that direction Just wanted to bring that point up, because I've seen people getting banned for less in other games - and if you remember... I've also seen several comments by players in-game regarding your name, asking your what's that about, so that's not like pure invention. Little counter-fact to the "you ban people just so" subtext. @Ridoc well, aren't we? We do all wear Lederhosen and drink beer for Lunch, eh? Also... thanks for stepping in and sharing your thoughts again on this topic. Very well said and -again- much appreciated! And... apologies you got sucked in that topic as well... I think this topic's pretty much worn out now, is it? shells
  5. Ok, thanks for your thoughts and your side of view. I can understand how this particular situation might actually have looked like to you. From your point of view it might have actually looked like you described it above, so I'm not taking it as an offense at all. That it has been a long time story couldn't been known to you. Yes, we all were on the opposite side on that particular round. We played in the same team before on other days, we didn't do something when enemies were using your Twitch stream to spot our fobs (and proudly stating that in the chat if you remember...), and we monitored your friends performance over weeks, regardless on which team we were. I even watched your stream for quite a while days ago to see how you personally play, WeiSS. Didn't get any bad feeling, so you're still able to join our server. I haven't even done something against the bad feeling we Germans got with those two capital "s" (for obvious reasons) in your name, as I haven't seen any reason for it. So you can call me whatever you want, I still won't revoke my decision. And by the way, Mr. Factsheet, I didn't play the "it's my server so I can do what I want card" - just for the files. One "fact" slighty off the thruth, another "fact" slightly off the truth, is that how you work? I explained why your friend was put on the ban list. If you believe or don't believe my intentions about it, is basically your problem. Not 10 "facts" will change that. You can continue to try to make me, our community, any player on our server and the whole server bad... if you got nothing better to do, fair enough. I can live with that. shells.
  6. Having a different user name in the forums here as I have in the game, as the name I usually use ("shells", yes) has already been taken, or appeared unclaimable in the forums back in the day. Nonetheless I'm the main admin of the server ✠✠✠[DOG] GERMANY.EU SINCE 2005 #2 ✠✠✠ Skul, Sergi or however you like to be called (sadly can't post, nor understand, any of the Cyrillic letters you came in our TS first), we had our discussion in TS this morning as you've correctly stated. Sad to see you're now trying to name and shame our server and try to get its license revoked (or how should I understand the intention of this thread?). I tried to explain my point of view to you as you might be remembering, but apparently your opinion was already rather fixed. Maybe just as fixed as your already prepared (I presume) "explanation thread" with videos, that "proof" basically just as much as any recording of any video or audio that has (totally not!) been edited you posted to our forums. And now, as you didn't get your will, you're trying to really give it back and show us - or rather me personally? We're giving the community a as lag-free and low-ping as possible experience on a dedicated host, being a host for new and veteran Squad players, based in Germany with decent DDOS protection at and I find it kind of contradicting that the intentions you're trying obviously to support, Skul, would be to try to bring this server down, really. This is a personal vendetta and you've not even masked it very nicely :-) However, you're totally correct, here is no thread in this forums because I couldn't open one. The fact I couldn't open a thread for it has been posted here in the forums as well, without a solution until last week (when I last tried). It might be due to some setting on my machine or whatever, yet it's not working and I don't know why. That's none of your problems, right. Still wanted to mention. Thanks to Ridoc for your opinion and time to respond to this offense. That's highly appreciated pal. Yet, as you've quoted me correctly, Skul, there have been complaints about the player in question (it has actually been quite a few during the last weeks). SI3R2A has been playing on our server since weeks before you put that "RAKI" infront of your names and basically since then we got complaints. As Ridoc states as well, he's not doing anything you would see instantly while looking at him and to be fair I'm not 100% sure he cheats, has any devices, mice or tools running that reduce recoil or whatever helping tools are available to unfair players. I've seen strange kills in the admin-cam during several rounds I spent monitoring him, yet. No proof that you might be requesting, so it's a "maybe" from my end. HOWEVER - and I have tried to have you understand that fact in TS today - we received several(!) complains he wouldn't play fair of the last weeks. Seeing (I explained it to you this morning as well, still: I'm trying again!) he _never_ does rounds with less than 40-70 kills and 1-10 deaths - and people THINK he's cheating and they expect US, the admins, to do something against it. Problem is: if people think your pal cheats, he might be not cheating but be the best player in the world, but he's still appearing as a cheating to others and especially new and unexperienced players leave because of him. It's not much of a difference to long-time players, just that they might take it a bit longer. People playing often on other servers come over and ask why SI3R2A is still allowed to play on our server because he's banned on a handful of others don't help much neither. If that's true or not, I don't know. As it appears, he's been on Ridoc's list as well, that's what I know. Players that are new to Squad (and not only them after a while) will NOT be very excited to be one-shot killed 15 times per round, be overrun and losing every round for half of a day, while the enemy team has people playing with a 68-9ish K/D the third round in a row. Long story short: Finally, after watching this for a while, I've come to a decision. This decision was that, for the long term fun and beginner-friendliness, SI3R2A is no longer welcome on our server. I'm sure there are several "pro" servers, league-games and your own server you can play on together. Everybody else of RAKI of course is still very welcome on our machine to have a nice time togehter. shells (charon)
  7. I tried with Edge, IE11, FIrefox (does not load the forums at all due to "endless redirect" something something), Chrome, Safari and neither works. When trying to create a new topic in the Game Server Feedback forums, it reponds with the 500 - Internal Server Error. I know it's strange as it, obviously, works here... so... I don't know. Maybe I'm missing something obvious? Thanks
  8. Hi, as the title says I can't create new threads in the game server feedback forum. when I click "post" the server replies with error 500. Any ideas? Thanks!
  9. I think it's a bug. sometimes it's in the options, then you have it in the game (if set to "ON"). Sometimes not. I don't think it's intentionally as is (but I might be mistaking, don't read every topic here )
  10. Me too. Getting hold of such a tool would be absolutely charming. I'd be opting for beta-testing it as well. Currently I use a lightweight rcon console tool which can connect just fine and makes kicks a bit more convenient (looking up steam-IDs and copy paste and such - not that I had to use it very often yet, but it makes things easier and faster if so), but anything more convenient, maybe with some luxurious features as player stats etc. (similar to ProCon for example), would be awesome as well. Thx
