Past Sam… Past…
Name**: Known as Mean, current name Neam****
Steam profile link**:** http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561197980476694/
**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’m applying because I love this game that I’ve been playing for such a long time, but sadly I’ve noticed the community getting worse and worse; people harrassing, hacking, abusing votekicks and simply ruining the gameplay for others on public servers. Atm I find the situation quite hopeless with this few admins.
I know most of the people who’s been playing this game for a long time but still I barely know a single active player who is an official admin (since Wolfy from our old clan RK quit), and the official admin group doesn’t help much since there seems to be way too few active admins there.
I’m a fairly active player who’s been playing this game alot (2300 hours played and started during kickstarter beta) so I know how to spot people who’s hacking etc.
I just want to help improve this community and since I’m an active old player who loves and knows this game very well I think I would be able to do a good job as a server admin.
Can also add that even if I used to be a competative player I spend alot of time on public servers nowdays, so I know from my own experience how the situation on those servers has developed (especially the FFA servers, that always get hijacked by teaming votekick abusers etc). Im online on steam most of the time and will be able to answer and help players in need almost any time of the day/night.
**Relevant Experience: (if any – moderation/community management on other games/websites or technical experience, etc)****:**Been an admin on alot of unofficial servers, been officer and clanleader of the old clan RK (now sleeping/dead unfortunatly).
Got alot of experience with this community and how it has developed, alot of people in the EU region of chiv know who I am and probably knows that I wouldn’t abuse the admin powers if they were given to me.
The random votekicking should be bannable indeed. But if people want to do passive teaming in ffa, I dont see a problem. I see it as a good chance to practice some 1vN combat. Very satisfying to win 1v5s etc vs teamers when youve gotten your skills up :)
Yes, they changed its model during end of the beta (along with alot of other visual stuff), just before game was released. Halberd was my main weap back then so played alot with that old model, liked it if I remember right.
They were broken in a different way back then. Back at the start your kick had to be aimed exactly right to begin with and they had to be in the same vertical level as you.
Current kicks you can actually miss and then “drag” your kick into them. Jump kicks being more reliable than normal kicks currently lol. But previous jump kicks never worked. More often than not your kick actually connects now. But the failure rate is still too high. It really needs a 95%+ success rate. It currently has about a 75% success rate and that’s with jump kicks thrown in. But before it was worse. I would know I was one of the biggest whiners regarding the state of kicks lol.
Yes I remember that kicks were very different back in early game, but it was like a different mechanic and Im talking about the type of kick we have today. Imo its clipping through people alot more now lately than what it did some patches ago.
