Dear Torn Banner, CMW Employees, or To Whom it may Concern:
I have been playing this game since release, have almost 3000 hours, have 200 friends on steam that play this game, have gotten a good number of people to buy this game, and am a significant member of the chivalry community who has played an important role in keeping this dying game alive. I legitimately have more friends that play chivalry listed on my steam friends list (and who I almost entirely made friends with through in game mechanics, such as voice commands, and chat, some of my most reliable friends (including online and real life friends) have been made through this amazing game) than any other single player, and probably more than the next 5 after me combined. I say all this only to give more credence and weight to my following statement. The previous post, by NASTY_BUTLER, only hits on part of the problem rather than the whole. The individual he was referring to is [B] Papsi. However, Papsi (or Papso as he is commonly referred to) is not nearly the entirety of the issue here. Basically every official admin has disgustingly and tragically molted into a badmin. Years ago they were fair and reasonable (in fact all three of them used to be on my highly regarded Friends List, before I unfriended them for being toxic, mean-spirited, angry, abusive people and admins), but now, the only three that come to my mind kick and/or ban people for non-issues, personal issues, and often don’t even kick people for real issues, such as hacking. The three I am specifically talking about are [B] Papsi, [B] Butternut the Squash, and Karl. They are seriously damaging the community and often killing the official servers because people do not like playing with corrupt, abusive admins. I would recommend a few other players as replacements. Such as Speedingfish, Dennismoore, Nightchester, and maybe a few others, who have repeatedly exemplified the ideal qualities for an admin by actual time moderating their own respective servers, and who thankfully pay large fees monthly to provide the chivalry community with other servers to play on when we are forced out of the official servers, that supposedly come with the purchased game, by official admins who have become jaded, immature, megalomaniacs over the years of dealing with toxic players. I have been holding off on making this complaint for quite some time now, because I held out hope that they would return to their old-selves But alas, depressingly that is not the case. I have just been kicked by Karl for saying hello to my friends when I joined the server. I understand that he probably had a really rough day and for some reason decided to take it out on me. I rejoined, and politely stated that if he kicked me again for simply saying hello to my friends, that I would be forced to report him until his admin powers were revoked, since he seems incapable of having those powers without abusing them. I trust that TB will take the necessary action that is replacing the official admins with new, more reasonable, more just, more rule-abiding players.
Thank you very much,
Have a great rest of your day!
