Admin Abuse - Official Low Rank #13 - US Central



  • Hi there. My steam name is 2L2Q-L2P.

    This is a copy of the complaint I wrote up on the Steam Group page for the admins of official servers. I was directed to your contact page, but thought that this would probably be a better place to start.

    I’d like to report admin abuse.

    I joined this (low rank) server, and there was a level 44 there, named Mr Latex.

    I was surprised, and expressed that.

    I have an small 3 2 screenshot album here of the chat. Unfortunately, the other screenshots I took didn’t save as I did a hard exit on Chiv. But what I do have should prove my point.

    I came on the server and asked what a level 44 was doing in there:

    His answer? “Shut the f*ck up 2L before you lose your place on this server…I’m not in the mood”

    In this same screenshot, he says I tried to kick him. That was a flat out lie. He was using that as a reason to kick me!

    Again, in the same shot, he’s trying to incite the entire server. “anyone got a f*cking problem with that?”

    I asked if he was an admin, but honestly, didn’t even believe his answer due to his toxicity!

    Here I was thinking he’d try a votekick and prove to the server that he was lying about admin status. I was wrong.

    He kicked me from the server after that exchange with the kick reason being: “glad you said that”

    I don’t have screenshot proof of the Kick Reason, but I know for a FACT that there are server logs of admin actions.

    It wasn’t just a kick from the current game either, it was a straight out ban. That kick happened at about 11:00AM PST. As of 12:30PM PST 7:30AM PST the next day I am still IP banned from the server.

    Here’s the code of conduct from Torn Banner’s own page:

    https://i.sli.mg/amLjJw.png

    • “…being unwelcoming to new players…”
    • “…deliberately trying to escalate ingame chat and trying to get players riled up through inflammatory remarks.”

    I asked a simple question, and your admin IMMEDIATELY is rude to me, and banned me after a short exchange, in which he is escalating the situation.

    Thanks to any other admins that have had the time to read this.

    Mr Latex, if you try to delete this, I’ve already screenshotted it.

    This is your official splash image on servers right? Mr Latex obviously doesn’t care about the rules.

    DO

    • BE POLITE AND THINK BEFORE YOU TYPE
    • SUPPORT NEW PLAYERS INSTEAD OF KICKING THEM

    DO NOT

    • USE DISCRIMINATORY OR DEROGATORY LANGUAGE
    • VOTEKICK PEOPLE WHO AREN’T BREAKING THE RULES
    • TAKE OVER AN OFFICIAL SERVER FOR YOU OR OTHERS
    • IMPERSONATE AN ADMIN OR MODERATOR

    Here is Mr Latex’s SteamID: (complete with VAC BAN!)

    Thanks to anyone who has taken their time to read this.



  • Yeah. If I’m not mistaken this isn’t a real official server.



  • Sounds like the average CMW player to me.



  • @TornBanhammer that is a private server, not an official. Mr Latex is not one of our mods. Thank you for reporting this info.

    No real official moderator would act in this way.
