Rage DDOS, is it proper to troll back?
So, for the first time ever I got rage DDOS'd. We started about a half second after someone ragequit and then continued a few seconds late as someone else came in. For the rest of the round the team was trying to vote restart...with a certain person threatening to pistol DDOS, basically whining the whole time.

He eventually did and I joined back in. First round infected...and I'm on his team. I played well...better than most of the team before the second round, where they killed me immediately and got owned before the No Mercy saferoom. Next round I get tank...decide to stand still, and was immediately kicked.

Was I in the wrong or right? Keep in mind I'm getting generously called butthurt through their angry midwest teenage voices.

Oh, also, person in question is . http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198002917782/

Other people on the team were eviL and skull overkill skull. Anyone else have experience with them? I reported Mad hat, but he made a point of bragging about how he was never caught.

I have no idea. I think it's just some kind of weird trying to sound hardcore thing.

LOL, never heard it refered to as that xD

Pretty much if you pick up dual pistols then spam swapping them for a melee you can sometimes drop 3 pistols....
Do this rapidly and you create a pistol stack of all these clones which act as physical objects so as the server is trying to figure out the physics of this pistol tower the server will lag and if done enough crash.
Best example of it is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V-3nrvwmCFk
It can help you get through campaigns as it delays the CI and SI's reaction times.

Doing it in versus is considered a ♥♥♥♥♥♥ tactic and any decent private server can just get the SMAC plugin that disables this exploit.

It is not at all related to DDOSing other than the fact it makes the server lag.

Or here for how to do it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b-zNN4I8k6M

Just kick anyone trying to ruin a game like that then melee the pile to split the physics identities up.

I assume sharing this isn't against the steam guidelines as it is an exploit not a hack lol.

Poorly configured server = Poorly configured! If the dumb-♥♥♥ who monitors/owns this server is stupid enough to let this happen.....he deserves what he gets. One thing`s for sure, if you try this on my server you won`t get very far lol.

Yeah, the SMAC plugins are almost as essential as mm/sm/stripper on independent servers.
The official servers will always have exploits like these as any plugin at all takes away that ''official vanilla'' experience... But I'm not complaining tbh lol

I'm not going to disagree that Valve needs to take better care of their servers either.

There are the rage kicks. You're playing survivor, a bloody boomer vomits on you and makes you blind, and you get kicked for not keeping up.

Also, all the people who rage are in TF2. I'm serious. I love the game, but you just dominate someone and they ragequit.
