What about the shitty players? I had one in my server constantly asking for spawns, loved to raid but lost his mind when his shitty base got raided, but thats what you get for placing all your loot boxes against your outer wood walls. Classic twelvie
Not long after trying pretty much every method under the sun to convince me to spawn him an M4, on arvo I logged in to “There was a hacker in your server” Its a low pop server atm so I checked the connection logs and verified that yes a few players had logged in but they were either mates of this shit player or long timers on the server that I know dont hack.
Then the story changed to “He had no name, and he was able to connect to the server without the server registering it, he took my M4 then flew away and logged off, he must have been using a VPN”
After 15 mins of arguing about how VPNs work and how its impossible for a player to connect without a connection attempt, he kept at it, because apparently a Microsoft Certified systems engineer doesn’t know how VPNs or servers work. He even led me to the area where the sleeper was which “must have been looted by someone while we were talking” He later rage quit.
Our rules are now updated so if someone calls hacker they have to have proof in the form of fraps or similar.
The next Haccusation? one of the good players was getting griefed by a hacker, quietly turned on fraps and talked the hacker into showing him where his glitch base was and also how he flew. got me on steam, sent me the vid and the hacker was banned within 10 mins.
Moral of the story? dont spam the admin in chat, get them on steam and give them some kind of proof, and let them investigate otherwise you’ll just sound like a whinging butthurt kid if you expect that they will just ban on your word immediately, or even believe your story.
