[USA] Legacy Enhanced kicking players for playing the game

Just wanted to report an incident that seems to be a running trend as of late from this server. In a game on the new map one of the admins decided to kick our squad leader without warning only because they pushed the first enemy objective, an incredibly common tactic in the current game meta. The admins had no tags, never gave a warning, and only said one time not to attack the first objective to keep it fair (again not informing us they were admins), until about 1/3 of the way through the game when they just kicked our squad leader, decapitating our team and basically destroying the mood for everyone, including sending our squad into complete disorder for the remainder of the game. Both teams objected to the kick since it was unwarranted and even the reasoning behind it was total bs, and anyone who disagreed was then threatened with a kick. 

 

With the bugs, crashes, new players or just ignore order or troll, and difficulty of finding a decent Squad leader it's already getting harder and harder to really enjoy this game. We don't need unmarked admins abusing their power to ruin the game as well. I really love this game and it's a shame to see people ruining it because they have a little bit of power.

 

This is NOT my first run in with the admins on this server at all. They are very often rude and over assertive of their "authority", kicking and banning people without warning or good reason. My advice would be to steer clear of this server. They do nothing but ruin the game for everyone trying to enjoy it.

 

[When asked about it later, they claimed they can regulate the tactics however they want and actually pointed us to their "Approved Tactics" guide. This was not on a custom server, but one of the main list ones.]

Hello Redfox. The admins are under no obligation to inform anyone that they are admins of a server. A server admin can kick/ban a player for any reason as it is their server. While they should be a bit more respectful, it is still their prerogative.  If you have an issue with their admins, you should take it up with their admins.

I understand they don't have to tell people they are admins, but I was under the impression that Squad servers with the license (The ones not in the custom list) were held to a set of rules found here:

 

One of which reads: " ~ Use the vanilla Squad gamemode rules so regular players know what to expect (will be important once modding is possible). "

 

This is upsetting because the server is kicking players who are abiding by the game's vanilla rules, which as I understand is currently against the Server Licensing System listed above.

When kicked the only reason give was as I quote (I do have screenshots): "Abandonment of agreed SL tactics and rushing first point after asked not to do so".

 

If I am mistaken then this post is simply a warning to other's and my feedback of the server. I have over 500 hours in this game and I love it, and want to see it prosper, and that can't happen if new players are introduced to the game by abusive admins taking away a good SL for a rule that is against the Squad Core Rules.

As I am the main person who enforces the rules for server licensing I know very well what they say. Admins are also allowed to kick/ban for whatever reason they see fit. I wasn't there so I won't say what did or didn't happen. As I said, you need to take it up with them for any ban appeals and/or grievances.

Hi redfox, thank you for your feedback. As we advised you in our discord chat, a player was kicked after repeatedly using profanity and totally refusing to engage in constructive discourse with server admins. Furthermore, members of the same group had been impersonating admins, trolling, and generally flouting the spirit and letter of the basic policies OWI has outlined since yesterday. 

 

On our end, we are currently training up a new crop of moderators and admins, and part of that process is making sure that there is no question as to whether or not they are acting in an admin capacity when they issue requests and orders to players regarding server rules. If there was any confusion in this regard, we apologize and ask for your patience as we develop the new members of our team.

 

Since server admins had previously discussed and you had acknowledged these issues on both sides, it is surprising to me that you chose to disregard them and create a new post as if you had no prior understanding of the conditions and policies that led to the administrative action occurring. Please don't hesitate to get in touch with us on Discord if you ever have any questions or concerns.
