ABC... What now?39

So most ppl will think abc is just a joke ( in a positive way ) But it's really a problem. Banned users are just joining ranked games and ruin everything for other players ( making accounts to force meteor on town, ... ) This needs to change because it's a really big problem that doesn't get talked about. If real new players join they could get confused by this situation... ( just imagine it ). Is there nothing we can do against it?

Is the noavi a new player that wants to play a new game or is it a banned user cheating and ruining the game? Are we allowed to kick those players?

Discuss, because of now mods ( if they are even online ) bans the player after the player is reported and then the banned user can still ruin multiple games.

More realistically, noobs are stuck getting bullied by coldie in mainbox and never come back. Most new people are alts. So I don't agree on increasing the barrier of entry to play ranked.
I've never seen coldie 'bully' a new user so maybe shut the f/u/c/k up about coldie and focus on what this thread is actually about???
1. I didn't mean coldielox... I barely played in coldielox her ranked games so I can't have an opinion about that.

" Abc is a meme and never joins more than 15-20 minutes when he does, i don't find him that hard to deal with. "

Sorry if ppl got confused by it, but thanks for pointing it out.

About what the thread is about, nobody discusses how abc just keeps ruining games and I wanted some opinions since nobody talked about it...

Next time please calm down when responding, I haven't said anything about her.

I wasn't quoting your post, I was quoting someone who quoted you. The quote bracket got messed up.

I actually agree with your initial post, and think something needs to be done soon for the sake of the users and moderators.

I think that the number of unranked games you need to play before ranked could be upped, but then you could just remove the requirement when creating alts attached to a main account that's played out the games.

So someone like ABC would have to play through 10+ unranked games to start GTing, but people who are just making alt accounts don't have to.

I also really think that there should just be a kick system for ranked. If 70% of the people required to start the setup vote to kick someone, they could be kicked. If friends abusing the system really becomes an issue, there could just be a limit of 1 kick per lobby or something.

Ok

Sorry I've had a big presentation yesterday for a lot of teachers, parents, classmates and other classmen. Had a really though month since my whole school year pretty much depended on it.

Thanks for the nice response, I appreciate it.
Sorry if I offended people, I really don't mean to, soon I have exams and after that I have a long vacation to clear my head a little.

It's an idea I think is pretty decent and shouldn't have much drawbacks, we can always try it out and look.

It does take 20-25 min for abc to get a ranked account, but if we could make that time long liker 50 minutes, we profit from it, mods will have less work, noavies will practice more before playing ( at least that's what I hope ).

Either way nice that ppl discuss it a bit since it gets left out in the dark and some ppl ( including me ) get a bit irritated when things like that happen.

ABC is a mod hoax to get away with mod abuse

the easiest way to prevent banned users from ruining games is by unbanning them. cant have a banned user problem if there are no banned users.

is there not something more advanced than ip bans like knowing that you've logged in from the same device

lucid and abc are like jekyll and hyde

what about a system where a user with 3 reports pending is unable to join more games until the report queue is cleared, meanwhile you punish anyone who is filling false reports.

up the number of unranked games you need to play before you can do ranked, even if it doesn't stop them it will happen less since they need to waste more time

You can always stop playing in this shithole
Scum, naz­i, filth, trash, garbage, maggots. We're all ruled by little chicken-neck nellies, going "Kill everybody! I get off when I talk about cutting people's power off! I'm a nelly!" RAARGH! Just simpering control freaks, in big nerd packs, taking everything over, ruling everything. Becoming police officers with weapons, tasering us for fun. I've had it with control freaks and scum! You people are cancer! Ugh! Alright, I'm not in a good mood now. I start thinking about Bill Gates, that little chicken-neck, hopping around, little murdering eugenicist. You know how he walks, like a demonic elf. "I'm Bill Gates! I'm gonna shoot you up with something that's gonna kill you deader than a hammer. How's a 30 year death from gut disease sound, African children? Roll up the sleeves! I'm a little chicken-neck bast­ard, and nobody's got the will to see what I am!"

True, there are a bunch of alternatives to em.com for phones. But are they as good as em.com used to be? Nah.
Do something, add rules, new system, whatever
