Better way to find servers?
I was just playing on a versus server when I was kicked by admin with the excuse "Abusive". I believe this has happened a few times and I think it is the same server. It carries a message saying "0 lerps and ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s will be kicked" which helped me to identify it.

Well, the only reason I can think why this admin kicked me is because I was clearly superior, and didn't even say anything during the game. It happened on the last map of the campaign too (Dead Center).

Is there a better method for finding servers so I can avoid these servers administrated by idiots once they are discovered?

Are you talking about normal or modded server? What about Google? (e.g gametracker.com)

When hosting games, use Official Dedicated Servers. If you insist on playing Best Available Dedicated ones, then you can use the server browser.

Also, ditch the arrogance, it wont suit you well in this game. If you're getting kicked by an admin, you need to realize that they are the ones paying a monthly fee to run the server, so they can kick anybody at their own discretion.

I have 1300+ hours on this game, so I don't see how I am being arrogant and am simply saying it how it is. Yes, they can kick people for no reason, which is why I wish to avoid these servers.

Also, when joining a game that is already active then you can't choose the type ingame.

report the servers name and ip adress to steam they can find out who there server provider is. but like the helpful reply... thats what forums are for not for people who are afriad to speak there mind in real life and go off on a keyboard.... they can be banned for kicking people for no vsalid reason, if it shows who there provider is report them if they get enough report they WILL GET BANNED.

Interesting. Maybe I will find the server's details on some of the third party software that has been suggested.

Isn't there a way to just block the server from popping back up as a choice..? Why report them, its 1 modded server.
Any thing someone says can be a vaild reason. Not getting cans and just standing by the generator. I'll kick for that. I'm saying they can say anything and it can be valid. Nothing steam can do as it is hearsay and your word against his.

enable/open console, enter openserverbrowser and a window should open up. go to the custom tab and refresh the list. add tags if you're looking for something in particular. from here you're able to see the server name; if you know the name of the server you keep getting kicked from you can avoid it now while searching for games with this server browser. right click to view info and see who may be on the server if there's someone you wish to avoid as well. you also may end up joining friend's only games sometimes, so don't be surprised if someone asks how you got in their game lol. I don't join games any other way.

@OP - Do you expect us to believe your story is not BS in any form and that you done nothing except play good, seriously not sure how many ppl swallow that but i hope it isnt many.

Well if the admin says you were abusive then you were abusive!
they usually warn you first!
& Yes Alex sting is right!
1300hrs is nothing!
Hrs in-game dont make a superior player!
against 1770-3500hrs etc....!

A pointless response to a dated post. If I say you're a ****.... you know the rest. :)
