    Apollo, Everything alright? This is a weird post, is it even by Apollo? Or has he been assimilated?

    This may be a little off topic, but I was informed that someone today was playing under the nickname of Gavin C. The players id # is 1485, the weird part is that his other nicknames include Wowbagger, irishbandit, gcamp and others.

    It’s kind of sad but i think its about time to figure a way to register user names. I can see where it could get confusing to some when 5 different people are all playing under say “wowbagger” its a good way to make enemies and know nothing about it.

    Would it be possible to change the stats lookup so a ‘nickname’ search could be done. Not just current but all nicks used.

    This would prevent ‘new’ players from ‘accidently’ using a current nickname.

    Players like ID# 1499,1500,1277,1230,1226 would benefit by not ‘accidently’ usuing a nickname.

    That was just 10 minutes worth of searching by the way.

    Remember players, ‘especially top 25’ the next time someone seems pissed at you for no reason it could be just an ‘accident’ that someone else has used your name to agrevate another player!

    How many redis,comedown,wowbagger and Apollos do we need anyway?

    In a perfect world I love this current system, you can come and go as you please. But this is not a perfect world, so requiring registered names is an solutionable option.

    The unfortunate side is as of recently we now have people who are, at least I belive it to be more then one, who are making it thier duty to start problems.

    I was playing off my laptop at school and recorded this log:

    This imature baby stayed in the shadows of spectator mode so I have no positive lead on who it is. However as said I have thoughts.

    I agree, in the advanced search, I miss the ability to search by username. Lets take it one step farther and search by alternate alias’s too.

    Maybe *NAME RESULT* *ACTIVE NAME* (could display diff titles, could be displaying the same name..) *USER ID* //Use to determain diff users using the same Active Name.

    Sorry about the double posts. I had multiple browser windows open as I was finding his aliases.

    Here is what he does…

    1 ) He lurks under a user name, then when he wants to single someone out, he’ll quit out and rejoin using his original name. (I’m not sure if he is on a LAN with 2 computers or not). Which of course would allow him to Kill an “Inert” player while nobody else is on. We have seen “Double logging” in the past.

    2 ) He has a habit of quitting out in a round when he’s terminally injured, which of course denies a kill from the player who injured him in the first place. (Currently, there is no penalty for quitting out and re-joining). (That makes the resign penalty rule no longer valid).

    3 ) He will amass money from a few rounds to buy funkies, when those funkies are gone, he will quit and log in on an alternate account and buy more funkies to single people out. After that he will duck out again immediately or wait until he is injured and quit out.

    4 ) He stays in spectator mode and taunts players to distract them from the task at hand.

    5 ) There is a distinctive pattern that I have observed, where certain players will not shoot at him until there is virtually nobody else left, and when they do… the misses aren’t even close. That brings to mind the Double logging (Decoy) that Moke used to use. I saw Zif shoot at him for 7 shots and make major adjustments on each shot yet still miss. Call it collusion or a double log.

    6 ) What is the deal with calling people who use dirt a “Moron” then using dirt himself? He insults people by calling them a few choice words some of which are acceptable and some of which aren’t. So I’ll list a few:
    Moron, A****le, Idiot, fck, Bugag and buga the last two I’m not sure about, so maybe it’s paranoia on my part to think that these are insults. (I call him “bungholio” a term from Beavis and Butthead).

    7 ) I’ve seen him get killed and he insists on saying that the shooter was “Lucky” or “Moron” or “Idiot”. You will never hear a compliment unless it’s a player who is in collusion with him or a double logged alias.
    (Like he is somehow entitled to win every round he plays). Zif won a game with 3 kills??? While being there for the entire game? With a ranking over 700???? At games End, 1 complimented him… then said ty I’m good. maybe he forgot to open the other text line up… LOL After which He declared, that HE “Let Zif WIN’!!! mmmmm okay…

    8 ) I’ve seen him get a near kill and ask, “Why or (How) did you live through that”?

    9 ) He makes references to the Game developer, inferring that He is his friend… insinuating that He has control over who may or may not get banned. (See the Willis post that precedes this one).

    10 ) Finally, he is just plain rude to people. (I’m concerned that his ego will get in the way of new players coming to the game and finding it enjoyable).

    11 ) I have a good feeling that He has somehow acquired players IP addresses and knows some sort of Ping Flood method or a way to overload the servers outgoing traffic to certain IP’s causing a disruption to the flow of the game and lagging people out. Redi was a witness to this on more than a few occasions. Of course when he was challenged on the possibility… he was all laughs (LOL’s) about it. He even accused me of lagging out the sever. BTW I have DSL.

    12 ) He isn’t even registered in the forums, I think that’s a way to keep his IP under wraps. Which of course is totally fine and dandy. HE challenged me to a duel, I said, “Sure open up a server and make it baby missiles only…” He refused to do so saying that he wasn’t going to let anyone know his IP address… That leads me to conclude that He does know a IP Flood method.

    Well, those are the examples that I can express at the moment. I took a few days off from the game, maybe the atmosphere will change for the better.

    It’s obvious that 1 will try these methods on myself and wowbagger for now, who knows how many others he will do it to.

    I see that there are a few admins that witness the goings on. Over time I feel as though corrective actions will be taken.

    A few changes could be made. Such as;

    Restricting a IP to only log once into a server. (to Disallow double logging) or two computers on a LAN from connecting to “Rated” servers.

    The “say” command in the console should be disabled. (That would prevent repetetive lines to flood text in game some of which contain voids by using the spacebar). Let them use T and Y for chat.

    Perhaps a ten or fifteen minute delay could be established to prevent a quick quit out and return using a different alias. Only to Blast people using DH’s and funkies. see {3)}

    Finally a IP identifier or password log in which would allow the server to reject a connection registered to a specific alais. (Sorry to the Guys that have the luxury to play both at home and at work).

    I will try to compile a list of user ID’s that steal other peoples user names. Maybe I could get some help here, I know Boy is fluent with excell…

    I hope this post sheds some light on my thoughts, thanks for your time.

    I may soon lose interest in the game if all of this continues. That would be a feather in 1’s cap wouldn’t it?

    Apollo
