Pinion servers.
How do you guys feel about Pinion servers and getting locked into the MOTD for 20+ seconds? I find it incredibly annoying, the worst part being I have yet to find a Pinion server that doesn't have a decent spawn time.

It's incredibly intrusive, especially when some servers don't stop at the initial 20 seconds - I've been to servers where they pop up the ad right in the middle of a life. There's rumors going around that some servers that run Pinion might be slipping you malware as well, so there's another (possible) dock against it.

I'd highly recommend looking here and see if this method works for helping you skip the ads. Though to be honest, the best way to deal with Pinion is not giving servers that use it your valuable traffic. You have to send a message to a server owner that you won't tolerate this intrusive garbage, and the best way to do it is letting their server go empty.

Drives me nuts when it happens right after a round, especially when my team won. I like hunting defenseless enemeies after a win. lol

I think I might just love you for pointing me to the thread that shows me how to get rid of the ads.

I've blacklisted all the servers with Pinion ads that intrude into game time. Being a medic or engie is so annoying when you lose 10 seconds of setup to Pinion ads. The ads themselves suck too - half the time there's no ad and I've only ever seen about 3 different ones total.

The ads play right in the middle of a game, and even run when i leave those servers! Blacklisting known pinion servers helps, but when finding games for MvM, i'm still directed to them.
