In Rust news:
Automatic Violation Kicking - André Straubmeier
I enabled automatic kicking when high anti hack violations have been detected by a server. We have tested this on our servers for a while and as far as we’re aware there aren’t any unresolved false positives with it at this point, so it should be smooth sailing. Server owners can of course still configure this behaviour with the anti hack convars.
But there must be some bug inside, I saw many people get kicked for this (like half server… 50 people). I was not playing for few weeks, today bunch of friends start playing again, so I joined. We started at Frankfurt 2, but there was too good players (big bases, top gear…) there I saw many kicks… I was like… yea EAC is doing fine.
Then we moved to community server TrustInRust, start playing, been there few hours… then people get kicking too. And when I was laughing on them, I get kicked too. For nothing. I was idling in middle of room, then saw some players trough wooden bars, so I decided to shot him with my bow.
(yes with bow, I was on that server for hours, but I was being almost every few minutes killed by someone, so I was naked and with bow. ).
What is sad, admin of TIR server decided to simply ban these people automatically (so yes, half population get on ban list). He probably think it same as cheat detection, not think of innocent players.
Facepunch should really fix this, because false reports of someone being cheater dont lead just to ban, but can destroy player reputation. AS I said, I was playing with bunch of long time friends, they were looking on me like wtf… what i am doining…
Again. no vac ban, no eac ban. Just some false kick which lead in destroyed reputation and local server ban. So Rust is now useless piece of software for me. If I cant play with friends anymore.
I know Rust have lots of cheaters, but this new tool kicked in one hour half population on two servers, that is not normal.
I know in news there was " any unresolved false positives" but on test server. Not in real environment. And its not first time when Facepunch start calling innocent people cheaters
