    Region: North America, Central/Eastern
    Reason for Applying: i frequent the official servers of chivalry often and notice that there are blatant violations of the rules going unpunished. The lack of active server admins is troubling and frustrating. I believe the rise of issues such as vote kick abuse, in game racism, trolling( and sometimes speed-hacks) can be attributed to the lack of official admins. I would like to see a chivalry where people don’t have to worry about such petty issues, a better chivalry. many a time have a seen vote kicks for reasons as silly as being archer or man at arms. I believe that with more (reputable) admins we can cure chivalry of these minor problems and thus help thrust it into an age of full TO servers.
    Relevant Experience: I have been an admin on a total of 3 servers (currently only 2, the other was shut down.). I have hosted 2 servers in my years. All together i have about 700 in-game hours and know the game mechanics fairly well. I also know most console commands and have keybinded some to certain keys (EX. adminkick, adminlogin). I have also been an admin on various servers on other games (G-mod, Call of Duty MW 2). if you have a desire to know the servers i am an admin for i shall state them bellow.

    Region: NA East/Central

    Reason for applying: I’ve been playing this game since the beta version and have more than 3k hours clocked in if you add all my account hours. I’ve seen and experienced all the highs and lows of Chivalry’s community. Nevertheless, I come back to this game everyday because this game is just that damn good. The reason why I wish to apply is because I would very much like to help the community in whichever way possible.

    Being an admin, I would ensure that everybody gets equal opportunity so that they can address their concerns and be judged fairly and to prevent the likes of trolls and voting abuse. Mostly, I would ensure that everybody would have an enjoyable experience while playing this game in order to promote a positive and healthy atmosphere.

    Relevant Experience: Administered unofficial servers (duel/TO/LTS/TDM). Lead and managed Vk, Faucheur and various other Chivalry Competitive clans as a community

  • I can’t do it or there would be many banned ballerinas.

  • I would admin the servers, but moderate the forums not a good idea lol

    Region: UK

    Reason for Applying: I play on the various EU classic servers almost daily, and have 1440 hours in game. I’ve reported various instances of hackers (long ago now, don’t often see them anymore) and racism/homophobia to the mods. Since I play so often I could easily moderate the servers from racism/rule breaking if I had the moderating powers to do so.

    Relevant Experience: Moderated a cute flash game called Transformice for roughly a year, it has a community which boasts over 60,000 simultaneous players at peek times. Considering the amount of people playing it, it had a ridiculous amount of racism/sexism/hacking/whatever else going on at all times so I dedicated an embarrassing amount of time to trying to help that game’s various communities. I’ve also moderated various small forums over the years.

    Region: US East/Central

    Reason for Applying: I often play on the official servers US east and central servers. The amount of negativity and offensive behavior on some-days in public servers just runs rampant. It’s what gave chivalry such a bad reputation and one of the reasons why new players leave after playing 2 hours. My hope is that with better admins, Chivalry can maintain a healthy community

    Relevant Experience: Moderator on a mobile mmo game called pocket legends. I’ve spent around 800 hours in total for chivalry (on different accounts) and I am also an admin for an unofficial chivalry server.

    I actually applied for such a position on the 4 of May of this year, using the email address provided in an older post about this same topic.

    I’m going to quote that, as I don’t think there’s really anything I could add to it, and my mind hasn’t changed since then;

    Dear Torn Banner Studios,

    My name is Antoine M. I’m from France, living next to Paris, and I’m a 24-year-old studying history (on my way to become a teacher).

    I’m writing you this email so as to apply for a position as an admin on your official Chivalry Medieval Warfare game servers.

    I’ve been playing Chivalry a lot for the past two years (having already clocked more than 1600 hours), have been a clan member of several clans, as well and co-leader and then leader of O.D.G, and I believe I have as much experience with the game mechanics as with its community.

    If you were to do an inquiry on the game’s regular players in Europe, I’m sure you would find that I have never had any quarrels with anybody for any wrong reasons, and that, as far as I’m aware, people consider me rather trustworthy. :P

    The reason why I’m even writing this is that there is a lot of policing to be done in Europe when it comes to people’s behavior on the official servers, and the two admins you currently have here don’t have the time nor the ability to prevent all types of abuse on all servers at the same time.
    In my 1500+ hours of playing Chivalry, I’ve so often seen people abuse others and then boast about the fact that nothing is ever going to happen to them because the servers aren’t being policed, I’ve grown tired of them being half-right.

    As a solution, I’ve regularly helped Kittyana by warning her of abusers (griefers, racists, speedhackers…) on the servers I play on, and by providing proof via screenshots over the last 6 months (including that of some very well-known awful people whose names I can’t really mention here).

    But Kittyana, just like MonkeyFiend, is only one person. And just like him she has other obligations in her life besides doing this admin work on the Chivalry servers. Two people for so many players and so many servers just isn’t enough in my opinion. Especially since the rarity of admin sights gives abused people the false idea that this game is some kind of savage land where absolutely everything is allowed and that nothing can be done about it.

    Therefore I humbly request that you give me the tools necessary to me to help enforce the rules set by you on the game.

    And obviously enough, I can only encourage you to get a few more people onboard on this side of the Atlantic Ocean.

    Here is the link to my Steam profile in case you need to see it:

    And there is my email address in case it doesn’t show for some reason and you need more information:

    I merely removed a few bits about my personal info, and updated a few others when I deemed that necessary.

    Age: 20
    Region: NA West
    Reason for Applying (issues you see w/ the community, how you would like to address them, what you think you can do to help, etc):
    I play on the official west coast TO servers. Most of the time there aren’t any issues, but sometimes there are with racism or griefing players. People occasionally assume I am an admin since I play very often and I suppose they recognize my name. I feel that I’m mature and patient, not much else to say I guess.
    Relevant Experience: (if any – moderation/community management on other games/websites or technical experience, etc)
    I used to be a moderator for Island Defense hosted by some clan on WC3 back when I used to play. I think it was clan ENT or GAME or BGN.

    P.S. I’m not interested in reading the forums really… on this site or the steam ones. I just would like to be able to help keep the games I’m in civilized and… chivalrous to an extent.

    Region: Southeast

    Reason for Applying: I enjoy playing the game without bigots. Additionally, the pub community needs an admin without a bias in favor of comp players.

    Relevant Experience: Not a lot, outside of playing a load of Chivalry. I was an admin on a private dueling server for about two weeks, where I only ever had to ban one person: King Leonidas. I am not quick to ban, though I am quick to kick players who are unresponsive to warnings in chat.

    Endorsements: You can’t really go wrong with Spook, Teuce, or Reithur.

  • @gregcau:

    I would admin the servers, but moderate the forums not a good idea lol

    In the same boat. Mean I would have to almost stop posting.

    Region NA
    Reason for applying** Unless someone is either afk or tking its impossible to convince a server that they’re wrong doing, resulting in dealing with their bs because the server wont kick them. For example, berating a new player because they are new, corner trapping, blocking pathways, hacking (you’d be surprised how little people believe it even when it’s obvious), sometimes ping, etc.

    Relevant experience Private servers on chivalry and Gmod, I owned a server in M&B warband for a bit too. (Most of this is on an old steam account)

    Region: US EAST
    Reason for Applying (issues you see w/ the community, how you would like to address them, what you think you can do to help, etc):
    The servers on this game are filled with toxicity. There is no punishment for bad behavior, if a user is chat spamming racism while votekick spamming and tking, there is no recourse, except the odd 5minute votekick, where they can just hop on an alternate account, or wait and rejoin and do it all over again. I play this game hours every day without fail, I’m currently at about 800 hours because I only joined after DW was released. I love this game. But the moderation is terrible. In 800 hours of only playing official, I’ve seen one warning given out to anyone, ever, and that was from Gauntlet himself. Not everything needs to result in a ban(this is crucial, I fear some mods might not be impartial, and ban freely, a ban results in one less player, while a warning or timeout can change a player) people need to be issued warnings, have timeouts, and chill out. It’s a game, people will be toxic and that’s okay, but quite often it goes too far, I haven’t been a model player, but that’s because these servers are lawless. I want to help bring the servers some of that law, and make this game even more enjoyable for everyone.
    Relevant Experience: (if any – moderation/community management on other games/websites or technical experience, etc)
    Besides not needing an introduction because I’m B list actor Kevin Spacey, I’ve worked as a prison guard dealing with prisoners, I’ve worked in psych wards using non violent crisis intervention to talk down patients, volunteer with the local police, and I’m a software developer, and understand video games(a little bit). I can be a very respectful person, and always take time to consider both sides before ever making an enforcement decision. The job of admin isn’t overwhelming, but it would be a great experience I believe, I would love to become an upstanding member of the chivalry community, leave toxicity behind and help make the game a better place for everyone. I have real world problem solving experience, and am not scared of confrontation.

    Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
    Though, No pictures please.

  • with a bit of luck this will be a fast process tbh. Having just seen at least 3 I reported previously many times on
    official server 1 ffa. Infact four of them were using the same name today all exploiting and teaming, they laff at
    the idea of admins even banning or catching them you know.

  • Hello TornBanner, I have sent an E-mail to the Developers concerning my admin application about 2-3 weeks ago and it seems it may have contributed to the opening of this thread (maybe not). Either way, I will post my in-depth application once again.

    Age: 18
    Region: EU
    Reason for Applying: (Original Application down below)

    (((Dear Torn Banner admin team,
    My name is SgtHannes and I would like to inquire if you are in need of an administrator for Official EU servers? Since early 2013 I have played Chivalry: Medieval Warfare extensively and with passion. Even though I first installed Steam in 2010, to play a demo of another game, Chivalry was that one game in my Steam library that made me want to learn more about Steam and its community. Not only that, but 85% of my Steam friendliest consists of people that I met through Chivalry which shows how tight knit the community is. To sum up my overall experience; Chivalry is the game that I always came back to, raising the hour count to ~1100 hrs.

    However, you may ask why I am writing all this. The answer is, frankly, quite simple. I want to make the Chivalry community a better place concerning the everyday environment that players find themselves in. Despite that fact that I have thought more than once about applying for a position as an admin for the official servers, there is also an aspect of me that longs for fair-play and justice when it comes to the conduct of some players. To give an example I can talk about an occurrence that took place just recently in which a group of Man-At-Arms joined a TO server to do nothing but team damage friendly players. When the time on Citadel neared its end, and the Mason King spawned, the group of MAA’s decided to teamkill the King and destroy what every player on the server worked towards for the last 25 minutes. After a group of players decided to defend themselves they were unjustly vote kicked by the MAA’s. This sort of behaviour does not occur on a daily basis, but it is also not so rare that one can simply disregard it. There was one thing about this that struck me though, it was not that the group of MAA’s decided to be bad sports, or ruin the round, but the fact that they vote kicked players who stood up against them; something that caught my eye as completely unjust and unfair. This being said, I would do my best to counter this behaviour and create an atmosphere where things like this would not happen while I am around. Furthermore I am willing to actively work in the forums aswell as on the server, provided this is required of me.

    To finish this off, I would like to say that I am an active Chivalry player who would love to do something for the community. The lack of administrators on Official servers (at least from what I observed) made me write this application in the first place. I would be grateful if you would consider this application and inform me about your decision.

    With kind regards,
    Hannes a.k.a Rolled Homogenous Armour.)))

    Age: 24
    Region: NA

    Reason for Applying: I have been interested in being a mod for quite a while now. I want to help the community grow and maintain a fun atmosphere in and out of game. I think that mods should be present to make sure servers are running smoothly and not being hijacked by a few people, have individuals harassing other players, or people hacking. Most of the time the players in that server are mature enough to deal with it but occasionally an admin will need to step in.

    Relevant Experience: Specifically related to Chivalry I feel that I have the experience that is needed. I have help admin multiple different private servers, from the Classic Duel Yard that Amish_Insurgent had up for an extended period of time, to the /r/ChivalryGame server. I would let people play as long as they were following the rules set in those private servers and for those unfamiliar with them explain those rules and if necessary give a warning. I have also done some community organizing events. Another veteran player, Narao, and I organized a large scale battle about 2 months that at it’s highest point had 50 people all in one server and Teamspeak. This event had competitive people who were members of clans, as well as players who weren’t, all playing together and having fun. We were successful in getting everyone to participate in multiple different “mini-games”(s?) and having a great 3-4 hours playing together.

    I also have relatively extensive real life experience managing groups of people, specifically college aged, and maintaining a good environment and enforcing rules as needed. I’m more than willing to explain in a PM/email.

    Region: Oceania

    Reason for Applying: Because nobody else in my region applied. I also got votekicked for no reason today.
    As it is everyone’s problems is my problem. People come to me saying things that all sorts of players either have done or are doing. But of course I can’t do anything about it on official servers. It’s a defeating feeling when people come to you with their probls but you can do absolutely nothing to fix them. Solving the problem on GON servers just makes it even worse for officials. Overall not solving the problem.
    But it also means I know everything about everyone. What oceanic players have done to others.

    Relevant Experience: 2 years Experience as a Games.on.net admin for Chivalry, Red orchestra 2 and Battlefield 4. Involves maintaining server, processing reports, appeals and such as well as live moderation. Games.on.net being Australia’s largest Gaming news and community site and one of the largest server hosters in the world due to state owned assets. Also the Producer for Heroes of the West handling PR, HR and QA among other things.

    Region: Southeastern United States

    Reason for Applying: I like to help people, and I have a lot of time on my hands. Other than that, I know firsthand that a handful of bad apples can ruin a game; and since forums are the point of interaction between players and developers, forum moderation is essential to keeping bad apples to a minimum. Because new players look to the community forums as a gauge to what interactions in the actual game are going to be like. If there’s a lot of vitriol, then potential players will just assume that’s what things in game are going to be like and take their money elsewhere. Think about if you were looking to buy a house, and you were checking the photos of online listings. Would you be more willing to go and look at a home that has trash in the front yard in its picture, or would you be more willing to go look at a home that has an orderly front yard?

    Relevant Experience: I’ve been on Steam for over 10 years, and I’ve moderated servers in both Counter-Strike and Red Orchestra 2.
