    The Proper Way To Catch And Report Gamethrowers

    Post by Solidifire on Sat Nov 03, 2012 3:14 pm

    1) Know the signs. Unless you want to watch every replay, there are two things to watch out for. Small groups hunting you down and killing you for no reason, and a marine working with the thing to kill people. The marine/thing one is obvious, skip to the next step. As for the group hunting you down, you will need to watch the beginning of the game in the replay. Watch if the marines go to the same location right away. Also, notice if they shoot others, but don't shoot each other without saying a word to each other. See if they say anything at all, or just start shooting all marines on sight (except each other). If those things are true, I can guarantee you they are cheating.

    EDIT: PEOPLE using in game party chat will also do this, and that is also against the rules.

    2) Save the replay. Save it even if you have suspicions but don't feel like checking right away. Rename it to something you can remember (I usually name it the players names, or at least the color of their marine to help sorting through the replay easier)

    3) KEEP IN MIND, colors are scrambled. You cannot accuse someone who's game color was black just because a black marine was a tker. The player with the game color of black might have been the yellow marine. YOU MUST be careful about this part, or you will end up accusing innocent people.
    edit: thing also changes colors, obviously, so be aware of that too. marine color should not be used as the basis of accusing.

    4) Look through the replay, ideally you will have stayed until the end of the game and gotten the players names. If you think the black marine was tking, at the end when you see the player leave and their name is colored black, that is your guy. IF you did not do this, you need to check each players "player view" in the replay, until you find the person controlling the marine color you suspect.

    5) If you are sure cheating was going on, and have their names (either from staying till end, or checking every players "player view" in the replay) you need to get their handle. These handles are located at the beginning of the game (go to beginning of the replay, you CAN NOT see the handles in all view, you need to be in a specific players view). After you have done this, write down their name and handle.

    6) PM me or Admin (Vicboy) their names handles, and a copy of the replay. DO NOT do this in a sc2 chat window, as if we log out we cannot see this information anymore. Also try to include their colors in game so we can check faster, and a brief reason why you believe they are cheating.

    7) At this point, once we confirm, the player will be warned. If they are reported again after being warned, they will be banned, and will no longer be able to play.

    Cool Do this EVERYTIME you suspect cheating, and we will start cleaning out the lobbys for legit players, and making the game more worth playing.

    I am not an admin, but as it stands right now Vic knows that when I report someone I am positive that they are 100% guilty, so it just saves him time of having to look through every replay. Maybe this will change in the future, thats up to Vic.

    just wondering have you found a way to open up replays other than by recording and posting them or using sc2?

    I have a few replay of this guy with map hacks and he follows the person that he wants to kill directly or with a group and says their correct names.
    Me knowing that colors are scrambled, he says something like "OH IN THE LOBBY 1 IS RED" and such. He called out the people's name that he wanted to say and said they correctly and killed them.
    i just have no idea how to post the replays, would be great if someone told me how, i do know for a fact that this guy cheated.

    One thing as a game developer that I've realized is that you can never know all the bugs and exploits until people like them abuse it. I will try to find a fix on that soon enough. One of the things I could do is make my own player colors, but this will take a while.

    People should start being on the lookout more, there have been lots of teamkillers, gamethrowers, teaming, ETC, And if something isn't done about it it will just get worse

    Frankly, it's a massive improvement from how it used to be. That's probably because there aren't droves of TK'ers, just newbs.

    Lol Most Epic Bump of all time = Two year old post.

    I agree with Perp, with Reefer and Pepe not playing as much, they haven't really inspired more people to TK. Its usually only one or two individuals now that occasionally get on. (Pauwal and Mignen)

    The game is much better than it used to be in terms of playerbase and community. (Well working on the website getting more popular, but you get the point.)

    Edit: 3 years.

    if you have a hand full of people complaining about it maybe you should look into it instead of mocking them.

    admins are way to quick to use their administrative smiting powers for their own personal reasons. theres a revive system, theres a kick player system.

    if theres a real problem in the game then the players do have to ability to deal with those problems but admins picking and choosing who does and who doesn't get to play is wrong. thats a group decision~ via player kick button
