210-220 ping name changing griefer
« on: December 01, 2018, 01:10:17 AM »
so lately i've been playing on mara-coop and exitlevel, but it seems like now every time I connect, within 15 minutes a player with a 220 ping who uses other peoples names joins and ruins the game for everyone. When we go to a new level, he'll turn around immediately and run back to the last level we were just at. He'll do this over and over and over and over again until everyone else on the server quits. This has been going on for about 4 days now and completely ruins the point of playing co-op mode.

He goes by Stargazer, Warlord, Pepp, b2b, betadown (which was my name for a bit) and many other names. He'll impersonate other players and then piss people off while using their name.

That's not really Tastyspleen jurisdiction. Wallfly is there, but the server is not operated by Quadz. You'll probably wanna talk to Maraakate about it. It says his last login here was mid October. Maybe if you private message him it'll forward a message to his email.

Peeked at his website and found other possible ways to contact him:

It's indeed up to Maraakate whether he wants to ban this guy from his own servers.

However, this unknown player has also been impersonating these playernames on tastyspleen servers, too.

I've added a name-ban in wallfly to restrict them to the nickname they seem to use most ("newyork").

However: I suspect they are probably proxying via a VPN, and they will likely jump to a completely different IP subnet soon to evade the name-ban (and so I expect it will become a prolonged game of whack-a-mole.)

Thanks, yes, system crashed; unknown reason.

Hopefully everything is restarted now.

Some servers seem down currently Quadz, don't know if it's just a hiccup that'll fix itself, maintenance or what, but just in case, I mention it.

It's always been that if you mymap and disconnect before the map goes live, it's deleted from the queue.

Occasinally, someone will stick around until their map loads, and THEN disconnect, which is not appreciated. (Currently the only recourse is a full mute, as there's no provision for blocking just mymap usage.)

At least these days, the chosen map has to be roughly compatible with the number of players active on the server. (No more mapping sewer64 on a 3-player server; etc.)

Any way to prevent people from trolling with mymap? By that I mean they join the server, mymap a map, then immediately discconnect, forcing whoever's playing to play a map that nobody there necessarily wanted to play in the first place. Maybe have it check to see if the player who issued the command

Seems like that did the trick, quadz. I'm sure everyone is happy to have their lower pings back :) Thanks!

Yes it appears to be normal. thanks

OK, they made a routing change that appears to have resolved the issue I was seeing here.

Everyone else's pings back to normal?
