Please Steam Ban useless TL's
Dear Steam & devs,

This game is being ruined by ♥♥♥♥♥s taking TL and not dropping arty & taking the role simply to grief. Please start a system where steam bans are given out to such players if caught by admins or are recorded doing so with video proof by other players.

Taking TL and not using it does as much harm as haxing in other FPS and should be treated as such.

Can't higher level players boot them out of the role?
VonKluge Dec 3, 2013 @ 3:08pm 
No, the vote kick system is usless 5 vote kicks should be enought but you need far too many. The point is that it is game wrecking like cheating and steam needs to come in hard with the ban hammer to stop this.

I don't think its griefing, just a tonne of ADD riddled COD players that don't take the 20 minutes to learn the game mechanics from the tutorials.

Whenever theres a sale, expect tonnes of noobs; they are likely to be obnoxious since they will absolutely not stand for spawning with a bolt action rifle and a couple of grenades, after having their tricked out M1A2 with an ACOG, silencer, and heart-beat sensor.

I take a hiatus from RO2 for about a week until people figure out how to play.

What's honestly more obnoxious is when people start mass switching teams when their teams losing.

They need to lock teams once you pick.

A steam ban for not playing a class as you would expect one to play it?

Don't you think that's pretty damn silly?

I agree it can be a pain in the butt for someone to take a role like the TL and not use it as I would use it.... but to suggest that person gets a Steam / VAC / PB Ban for it is just over the top.

It's not even required. If there is an Admin who catches them, they can ban them from their server. If someone captures proof of them screwing around in a way that would warrant a ban, they can again send that info to the admin/owners of the server and they can ban them.

A global ban goes too far.

No, the vote kick system is usless 5 vote kicks should be enought but you need far too many. The point is that it is game wrecking like cheating and steam needs to come in hard with the ban hammer to stop this.

Sorry, but you can not regulate player experience or most actions. Yes, there can be those just trolling and trying to get players angry and frustrated..... but then you also have people trying to learn how to play or simply just having a bad day. Suddenly you have people like you demanding Admins or Steam/VAC banning them from the game.

Where do you draw the line? Eventually you'll end up having a real crap day and someone will demand that you be banned from the server because you're not living up to their expectations.

Is it just as bad as Cheating and Hacking??

No.

It's just a friggin game and sometimes you will lose a match or two. Sometimes it's due to a couple of crappy players on your team and other times you all did your best and it didn't work out. It happens. It has always happened in RO.... ROCA, RO1 and now RO2..... eventually you will have one or two players take a class and do crap at it that turns the tides in the enemy's favor.

Sh*t happens.

After every promotion / sale / event, Hard to spot 'To give a Roland for an Oliver' epic match.
'We're getting murdered' as character speak through voice chat or We can wipe out enemy,easily.
If tutorial progress is not finished, Multiplay option should have locked.

Since rising storm released, I can't trust lv.80+ or even 99 too... x8 experience yield amount bonus ruin expected value.
The only way to kick someone through vote(not a session ban with admin right) -> esc then vote kick.

I'm some one who get's kicked from servers often in every FPS i play. 5 kicks is way tooooooo low. Butt hurt (what ever game they use to play because COD bashing is way to generic) can't stand losing, & insta-vote kick anyone @ the top of the other teams roster. So, a large number of people required is a good thing. I quit playing crysis3 because of ♥♥♥♥♥♥bags spam vote kicking me from every server I played in. I didn't even use bow or gaus, getting kicked by people who only use both. >.>

anyways, your point is a terrible one. It's steam sale. Games are flooded with nub's.... or as some one else said in another thread "autistic pleb peasants" (obviously a reddit troll)

What I would give for the capacity to select commander and boot out someone. Or just server capacity to honor gate certain slots.

the problem are the tl guns! a noob see the ppsh/mp40 or/the thompson and take ith without having any plan ^^ tl need just standard guns at the first time and if u play it a lot u can upgrade it to an submachinegun etc i think this will fix it

This isn't to bad an idea actually.

''If tutorial progress is not finished, Multiplay option should have locked.'' for each class where tutorial is not completed.

Oooh this, Tripwire do this please. Also have vote out TL option and then that would time ban them and only allow to go rifleman for say 7 days on all servers?

I would also like to to TL only starting with a pistol as that would be realistic & would disway noobs and ♥♥♥♥♥ from taking the class.

The ability to role-vote is one which is either desperately needed or, since I'm fairly sure I've seen a role-kicking option before, it needs to be made mandatory.

With a significant and fair number of votes required, and moreover, role kicking should only be open to the team that the role is in, i.e. no Germans voting a good Russian TL out of his role or vice-versa.

How about Tripwire limit the TL role to those with a minimum rank? So many hours played? Minimum rank as a squad leader given that the squad leader role is the closest to TL in terms of responsibility?

Tripwire can solve these problems without any bannings or involvement from Steam.

The trouble is, it's *SO* easy to level against bots, with a permanent 4x XP boost now..
VonKluge Dec 4, 2013 @ 10:13am 
The simple cure is taking TL's primary away and leaving them with only a pistol & Sword for Japanes.
