Good point Brian. I'm gonna start using the tools in sourcemod before resorting to kicking. If someone is being a real asshole we can even make it a fun meta game of harassing them until they leave or get the point and quit being pricks.

See this is what I always try to do unless they are complete trolls. It's more fun to screw around with them than to just simply kick them.

That guy was definitely annoying. I'm not pointing to one specific kicking, though. In general I think we've gotten to the point where we use the kick hammer too liberally and we can be bigger jerks than the jerks we are kicking.

We have gotten some people to join the forum in the past because we do maintain control of the server. I'm not against kicking people for jerkiness or being completely useless. But I think we were more patient with people and were better at doing it matter-of-factly without snide comments when they were kicked.

One thing to note. I'm not saying we should be tolerant of people with names like jew killer or swearing at people because they didn't stand on the point. Some things don't require giving people another chance.

I am going to try to be more helpful to people and assume that they are trying to win but need some guidance.

Man, can we leave poor Psych alone for a day or two?

This food truck was by my office today for lunch. I had to stop by, in honor of Psych.

haaa

Psych, where are you, I didn't mean to be a rude, come out tonight and play!

I tell a guy to go f*ck himself for ordering me to switch classes in MvM and I'm the one that gets vote kicked. Ok.

So what you're saying is if we were on our server and you told a defensive scout to switch classes and he said that to you, you wouldn't kick him? I would.

Details, were you the third sniper?

No wonder he's so popular with the ladies.

You just saved me 200 dollars, which is what it took to unbox an unusual hat :/

Woo! It only took me $67.50 to unbox an unusual hat.
(but it sucked .... Green Confetti Birdcage)

I Think they sell some cream for that.

Love it. Especially next to Mex's spray.

$137.50 for me. Then I decided to try for just one more. Got my second at $755. Even in a congregate game Valve finds a way to screw me. Seriously, valve, let me buy a damn hat for $50 and I'll get in line.

Of course if you were one of the people who happened to play TF2 on a mac you already have a way to acquire a hat. How does that work?

sigh... trade for keys people, trade for keys

[size=6] I buy them too just not that many..damn[/size]

I joined a team with two demos and a heavy, I went soldier, the fifth person joined and went soldier, one of the demos switched to be the third soldier and demanded that I play pyro.

Pub stomp feels so good after a grouchy week at work. Highlight might have been a guy complaining about a clan who stacked one team, then once he voted them out he brought in his clan friends, and they lost while he talked smack. Had a good night of hunting down jerks like that, plus dominating an aimbotting sniper.

Got disconnected for the weekend. Hopefully back online tomorrow.
Lots of fun living in a third world country where they screw you over so easily.

It is, isn't it!

I know the Saxxy Awards are old news, but if you didn't watch most of the nominations, you really should. My quick recommendations:

Action: Meet the Dumpster Diver and Badwater Bebop (cuz I loves the Scout)
Replay: All of them are AWESOME.
Comedy: Ironically, none. Practical Problems was shown before, but none were stand-out.
Drama: All of them are solid. Till Death Do Us Part is anthem-y, Bad Medicine and I Dream... are artsy, and --

Overall winner, according to Valve (and me): Story of a Sentry. It's the one that made me post this. Absolutely stunning, and everything a short film should be.

I didn't care for any of the replays other than the high five fail and I've seen that one many times. It's okay but I don't think it's great. I've seen better replays from many people here.
I liked the Wishmaker comedy one. I love the heavy, though.
Story of a sentry was excellent. Very nice job of humanizing the sentry (reminded me of Wall-E). I also liked 'til Death do us part.

And now, a documentary of my game whenever I play engineer and Psych ukick Brainz plays spy.

Fun games last night after the initial dustbowl roll.

I'm looking into this scramble plugin and it does some really cool stuff http://forums.alliedmods.net/showthr...

It might come in handy in the future for the more obvious rolls and stacked teams. It is much more efficient than the built in valve scramble. Instead of random scrambling it can take all kinds of sorting into effect.

14 Sort Modes

1 = Random
2 = Scoreboard Scores
3 = A ratio of score and connection time
4 = Player kill/death ratios
5 = Swap the top players on each team
6 = Use GameMe rank
7 = Use GameMe Skill
8 = Use GameMe Global Rank
9 = Use GameMe Global Skill
10 = Use GameME session skill change
11 = Use HlxCE Rank
12 = Use HlxCE Skill
13 = Sort players by player class
14 = Plugin randomly chooses a mode from all the available

I'm not married to the idea but any means just throwing it out there to see what you guys think.

Does it restart the map? That's my biggest issue with Valves scrambler. We just played 20 minutes of hot buttered roll, you want us to do it again? Better to lose quickly and move on the to next map. Esp. since Valve "scrambler" does a terrible job (I think it has to do with how horrible Valve is at making random number generators...)

I swear, every time there is a scramble I'm one of the ones who gets moved. And then I run around trying to kill my own teammates for a few moments until I come to the realization that I've switched teams.

Nope it doesn't. Only reason I used it last night is because the first roll took about 5 min.

It's doubly fun when you're a spy at the same time you're scrambled.

Mode 14!

Oh hey, maybe I'll get to play this game again sometime soon. I went to the movies with Grumpicus, Bonus Eruptus, and Legion last night. Everybody hassle them to get them back on the server!

GameMe? Is that like HlxStats we used to have? I kind of miss that...
