Pay attention Devs. Remove votes to kick in versus please!
People kick you for no reason at all. Just cause some guy gets jealous of your score or cause you took his weapon. Even if your the host. It does not matter. This is a problem.

Please see the hundred other posts. Vote kick gets heavily abused, but it's also necessary that it stays because of the people it needs to be used on. They haven't changed it by now, they probably won't in the foreseeable future.

Hmmmm...thats funny you don't look like a dev :P For real this needs to go. Its even more ridiculous when you can't join again so if you have homos in multiple servers (did I mention including ones you hosted) you have very slim pickings. It ruins playing when your having fun and some guy chooses you.

Wait, what? Your score? What score?
Maybe you can see how well you did by the end of the game on the credits screen, but by then it's too late to kick players... The only "score" you can see during the game is someone's health and wether they're alive or dead. Don't think people kick other players because their health bar is full.

Keep in mind that there can be any number of reasons for someone to want to kick you. If you're hitting your teammates too often (accident or not, and obviously if you're blatantly trying to kill them), not supporting, covering or healing them...
If you're rushing ahead of the team or staying too far behind when they're not. If you don't speak the same language or don't communicate enough, or too much.
It can even be your attitude. If you're not respectful of other players, chances are they won't bother keeping you in the game.
As for being kicked from games you host, is that even possible when using the local host option? If it is, then sucks to be them because the game will just disappear. Also I would suggest installing an admin mod (Sourcemod, I suppose) and being recognised/logged in as an admin to prevent anyone from being able to kick you.

Those Dirty Blues is correct, the votekick feature is abused by some people, but often it's needed. In my experience I've had to votekick more teamkillers and dumb pricks than I've had to deal with people trying to kick me or my friends.
Speaking of which, if you're in a game with one or two friends, trolls can say goodbye to their option of kicking you out. Worst case scenario then? They mess up your current chapter by wasting stuff or incapacitating/killing you, you kick them and start over.

Make sure you don't give a reason or (as I just said) the option to kick you and you'll be fine most of the time. Waiting for Valve to remove the feature altogether after all these years is futile.
Not saying it's impossible since they're capable of doing it, just extremely unlikely.

No, he's not a developer for Valve. He's just someone who has actually thought this through, and come to the conclusion that the kick feature does far more good than bad.

Yeah let's all go on the internet and complain about stuff....yeah buddy!

Kick is useful for when ♥♥♥♥♥♥s with tubas join your game and try to kill everyone else.
OR they could just spam weapons and take everything and waste medpacks or stuff.

Also a problem in CS:GO but they don't care

Need an autolock on the forum when in the title there is the word "kick".

The kicking feature does get abused at time to time. Although, it does more good than bad.

This is actually sadly true. If you are good at the game then you will get kicked less. The best thing you could do is to try to have more awarness of what is going on in your game. And some of the times people get kicked for a friend which I will admit I have kicked people for that reason. But removing the kick feature is not a good idea. If they did then people would join games and shoot their team mates and then they could not kick them.

If you have any questions on how to get better so you don't get kicked as much feel free to add me. I have played this game since demo and have 2.8k hours so I know what I am saying. Good luck in your gaming!

Thank GOD for votekick!!!!! i do every day

No I have seen it abused more than it has been used for what its intended for - I think we all agree on this one. An "incompetent" player.

I do not like trolls. The fact you actually clicked this thread when you knew what it contained and said something that has nothing to do with the topic but only to give your opinion on something no one asked you for. This is a forum. And by the way complaining is not what I have presented to the class. I have presented a problem. I hope your never in charge of anything that has to deal with customer services because if someone came to you and said there was a problem with the system being too slow - your response would be prolly "stop complaining" Now I have fed the troll - oh no...
