I’ll have to try to keep an eye on this thread so I can apply the next time you’re looking. I just missed it this time around! Hopefully I won’t have to wait another 1800 hours of play time. Haha!

RE: Votes Kicking and Chat without joining a Team
Oh, the rest of the server was definitely on board with kicking the guy; he had been kicked 2 times previously in earlier matches last night. We were going to kick him again, but he kept joining/leaving/rejoining the server so it made it hard to catch him. He’d join and start his own votekick immediately, so we’d have to wait for that one to expire… and he’d leave when it was up so we couldn’t get him. Attempted to catch him with the playerlist to do a votekick, but again, he kept leaving when his own votes ended.
I’ll post about this on the Steam forums as mentioned above though. This was on the Official Classic East server (32p), so should be in line.
Votes Kicking and Chat without joining a Team
I’ve reported this individual to Steam already under ‘User Misconduct’ and posting this here as a Technical Support issue I’m hoping gets included in the next patch. Basically, individuals are joining a game and “hanging out”, not picking a team, then proceeding to spam chat with insults/taunts and initiating votekicks repeatedly against their chosen targets. Chat and vote abilities should be limited to only those who have picked a team (and thus show on the general player list).
The individual tonight was:
This individual over the course of 3 matches joined, harassed 3 different people repeatedly, starting votes against them endlessly. At the end he even joined a team, TK’d one (myself), then quit before a vote could be initiated. He again rejoined (but did not select a team) and against started the votekick fest. This is the most blatant form of griefing there is and such should be discouraged. I’m hoping Steam gives him a temp ban at the least, but who knows. I attempted to grab some Screenshots of his comments (using Print Scr), but not sure if they got saved yet.
Classic TO Server (#15) - 32P - Server hacks
Just so the Devs are away of this, the issue with hacks is still in game (either dev or otherwise). On the topic server (Classic TO Server #15 - 32P) on Sunday, April 21 from around 1pm - 3pm, there was a hacker who was not showing on the player list who would chain-fire arrows as an archer, spawned as the King, when targetted in game his name would keep changing every second or two and when he finally let himself show on the server list and a vote was initiated, crashed the server.
Whoever manages that server might check their IP logs. For that matter, the actual “hacks” are definitely an issue.
