    Sucy the Mushroom

    I'll say again what good is server population when it's full of people who make others uncomfortable and would lead to us actually losing population because people don't want to be near them. What good is silencing someone when it has clearly had no effect on them before. Banning someone is the most clear way to outright avoid having someone like this on the server and to get the message across that we don't want people to behave like this around, both to them and anyone else.

    Sucy the Mushroom

    Ok...where to even begin.... I've tried to bring up and help clarify this issue a few times now and staff should have a more clear understanding towards this subject matter, but this is not what this thread is about so I will leave it at there will hopefully be a more solid response to this soon (though probably not much different then what most people have already heard). The keyword here is "if", because they were not bans and it's entirely unfair for us to retroactively decide to treat them as if they were. Doing so would lead to the potential of all sorts of ambiguity of punishing people to a greater extent because of theoretical punishments as apposed to an actual history and should be strongly avoided because of that. There's a reason a system exists for bans and there is a reason we should follow it as opposed to just skipping parts because of what "could" have been. You could argue that the mutes in question should have been bans (even then that's excluding the fact that no kick was present in between in either case) but that isn't something that should be faulted on someone who was punished, and instead is attributed as a mistake on the part of us as staff which isn't something he should be punished further on account of. What good is server population if the server is full of people who are rampantly toxic and actively make the place worse for everyone? There is a reason we punish people for this kind of behavior, simply put we don't want people like this on our servers. Just settling on perm silencing people doesn't help either for two reasons as I see it. One, in a number of cases this isn't going to change the persons behavior at all (such as how being muted has had no effect on how sucy behaves) and likely would just get them to continue to cause problems in other ways, with the punishment not having any real effect on fixing the problem in the long run. The other reason is that as I see it the servers are a very social place for most people, so not having the ability to interact socially when on the servers would defeat the purpose for most people to join in the first place, so the result would be no different then having banned them. So, all that said i'm absolutely in favor of issuing a ban due to the continued toxic behavior and will advocate for a week ban as that's the next step for him. If he works his way up to a perm then let him climb the ladder each step of the way with the opportunity to stop before it reaches that point just as almost every single other person who gets banned goes through. Despite me wanting a week ban I will say now because of his extensive history and notoriety I wouldn't exactly fight against him getting a month ban if other higher ups decide to go with that, but am not going to push it myself and would rather stick to how things work. (lastly sorry if this is hard to follow or messed up in any sense, tired as fuck)

    Halo 3 Online... Free?

    Not sure how long this has been around, but I swear I saw ads for it years ago and just assumed it was fake. Halo Combat Evolved was all I played back when I had a shitty $100 computer, the thought of being able to play anything akin to it again has me going nuts. Here's to hoping this turns out well.

    There are no cool kids here. I'm actually a bit surprised you weren't a member already. I'll keep from vouching myself since I don't see you too often but best of luck

    Bhop on Deathrun 2: Hop Again

    Yes but this doesn't help with the deaths ability to react at the traps themselves, only get to them, which the death wouldn't need assistance with in most cases anyways as already stated the runners can't just zoom ahead in the map most the time with this only having effect at the traps. So the deaths ability to get to a trap is redundant when what is being changed is behavior at the trap itself. My point about that is it negates any promise of this benefiting by making things faster when instead of people trying to trick the death as they are now they just stop in place to try and build up speed in a circle. These open traps are the only point at which this becomes relevant, so this is somewhat contradictory. At these traps which make up a majority of traps in general you WILL have enough space to build yourself up to max speed before flicking across at a random interval so the death can't predict when you're suddenly going to get across far quicker then you otherwise would be able to. In terms of messing up and losing your speed this is where suddenly the process becomes just as time consuming as baiting, since you lose your hop but just start it up again over and over until you do it properly.

    Bhop on Deathrun 2: Hop Again

    It doesn't matter how fast the trap itself is if you aren't able to hit it before someone passes through. It's not just a matter of what the death's reaction time is, it's that this forces the death to be faster when suddenly traps that give the death a few seconds of a window to activate are now cut down to less then half a second. Bhopping wouldn't have any effect on people getting through the entire map as already pointed out about the map layout and such, but it has a major effect on traps themselves when you're able to just build up a jump right outside the trap then snap through it when you've gotten enough speed. Frankly that might end up slowing things down in the end by having people trying over and over to build up a hop at every single trap. Overall though bhop directly benefits runners by allowing them to get past traps easier and does the opposite for the death by forcing them to be able to react faster without any plausible assistance for such. Some might argue it's too easy as death right now and this could make things more interesting and "skill based", but beyond that I don't see any benefit to it.

    +1 While the points about lying and the artwork aren't exactly reasons for removal (if we started removing everyone who made a poor example of the community or had similar issues, we'd have far less members very quickly) they do serve to support that the manipulative aspect is very much alive and strong. I'd say the scamming and general thievery both in and out of the community is an active part of what this individual does and in itself definitely deserves removal of membership if not a ban of some form considering how scamming is considered by our server rules (this doesn't pertain to the scamming in the past, but what was done to people through our servers and community via "gifts" ).
