  • Griefers and Passwords, they are in TG

    When I was playing today around 8:20 PST we had a huge griefer problem on evo. The worst was a guy named disco who was ramming UH-60s with hmmvw's and thanks to ArmA the pilot gets all the TK's and loses tons of points, not to mention the ensuing explosion taking out alot of vehicles. He got me once, and then rammed the next Blackhawk. Prior to that there was a guy named thunder who was running people over in the base intentionally with the dirtbike and hmmvw, no negative score is inflicted on the TKer for this either. He later then just starting shooting people in the spawn area.

    The most frustrating thing about it was we had no TG admin to permanently ban them, we eventually voted an admin on but I bet these guys come back because voted admins can't ban. So they have the evo password and probably other griefers too. Something needs to be done because there is probably nothing more rewarding to them than getting in a passworded server and griefing a bunch of serious players.

    Shame :/

    But I'd say it's pretty hard to be avoided, unless having a real admin present at the time ;/

      hey guys. We can definitely ban these fools. Usually, just PM an admin with what you posted. If you can, give us their player ID (#userlist). If you don't catch that, give us their in-game name, and someone can usually look at the log from the server, get the info there, and institute the ban.

      Thanks for keeping watch guys, and for putting up with the random idiots

          For the time being, ArmA requires community envolvement to weed out the lame. But that's not necessarily a bad thing, because they're not that hard to spot and those of us who like playing lamer-free would love to see them fry.

            Yeah, the griefer was annoying. He kept holding up BlueFor assaults and generally ruining the experience for everyone.

            Happy everyone voted me admin so I could boot him though! I'm still wondering if both the griefers booted were the same person?

                  Thanks for the report. Don't forget that all admins have MS Messenger so that we can be reached if we are "available" but not on the server or on TS.

                    If they have a 10 digit id number then you will be wasting your time banning them they will just generate a new 1.
                    You have to assume these guys don't care if you see their id's.

                      Wouldn't it make more sense for you guys to standardize in Xfire? After all, we can send chat messages right out of the game to a person not in the game. Only xfire has this DX9/DX10 game-friendly feature.

                      We lost about 30 minutes becuase of that greifer, not to mention 2 major helicopters ...

                        I have read that all 10 digit player id's are NOT legitimate...some servers kick anyone with these id's.

                        Seems to deserve some looking into.

                          Last night was a complete horror show. I had previously been voted admin myself, but just when the griefer came on, I was disconnected. When I came back on, I had obviously lost my admin status, and was immensely frustrated at my inability to do anything.

                          Thankfully, we subsequently voted Bobik admin, and he summarily kicked him. I took down his name, but didn't know how to find his player ID, so I am sure it will be of zero use. Hopefully, when he or one of his kind emerge on our server again, we will have an admin available to ban him for good.

                            yes it's possible for anyone to read the forums and get the passwords, but it is more likely this griefer was given the password by someone via another forum, PM, or TS or the griefer was a regular under a different name.
