Votekick rules need rethinking;vulnerable to server takeover

  • It is rare for all players on a server to vote, consequently it is quite easy for a minority of the players on the server to reach the necessary 55% supermajority to enact a kick vote.

    This results in servers with this feature enabled being vulnerable to take over by clans or disruptive organised groups (they use each kick to increase the % of the vote under their influence).

    I suggest that kick votes be changed to require a 55% supermajority from the total number of players on the server, not just from those casting votes. (e.g. a non-vote is the same as a no vote)

    I suspect that without this change most servers will eventually disable kick votes & instead rely upon admins.
