I think, that this option
makes the ppl think:
"Oh, the server is full!? well, i wait!
Someone will get kicked for some reason!"
The ppl rely on that option
and dont look for other servers!

Re: Why kick spectators?

This must be one of your weakest haiku posts, Kid. Try to think back to why the function was added & how the situation has changed today. If you like a different cfg better, go play it.

Re: Why kick spectators?

I think it has nothing to do with. Kicking is there as a solution from the beginning i guess and its basic in almost every multiplayer game.

silence is better than bullshit

Re: Why kick spectators?

I don't have any hopes you will ever respond to this Kid, since it's your modus operandi to spew out stuff and never take the consequences. But why not be honest with people instead of playing coy? You think there is a conspiracy of clans, servers and cfgs to hold back "good honest people" just like yourself. If you just come out and say it, it's much easier to answer your nonsense.

Re: Why kick spectators?

It is not basic in all MPGs!
And before u get personal,
lets hear, what other ppl think!

If u remove that option,
the server-politic becomes more open!
And it will FORCE ppl to look around
for alternative servers
(if one specific server is crowded,
and it makes no sense to wait)!

We all know, that this is a bad situation:
1 Server for the whole community!
It is not the lazyness or the habit of the ppl,
to play only on BEER!

Everyone knows, that everyone is playin on BEER,
and that u dont have to wait long in queue to get there!

You are confused, Kid. In a way I feel sorry for you, but let's leave it at that. You are confusing cause and effect, Beer is not the most popular server because it kicks spectators. The reason is another. And if that is your best argument you better pray to whatever deity you believe in for help.

1. Other MPGs have much more players!
They dont have probs to get 2 servers crowded!

2. Why have u added this option?
That the ppl do not go to another server,
that is not crowded coz of specs!

Re: Why kick spectators?

Sorry Kid, I know it's difficult for you.

The option was added because people used to insist on petting their cat, or eating dinner while in spec. You see Beer was the only popular server even before the function was added. People are obviously free to pic their choice of server, for various reasons they haven't flocked to, say, AIM Freeze. The cause of that is multifaceted.

What I think? I think you are stupid and beer will be popular whether spectator kick is on or off. Imo this has nothing to do with server popularity, and it won't make ppl join to another server.

PS. could you please remove your stupid "say_team" binds, cause they are making me sick xd

Re: Why kick spectators?

Kid is a sad case of someone going insane, fitting nickname I guess. Just a selection of what has materialized in his brain:

Quote:
Hendrik säger (00:08):there IS a conspiracy ...a conspiracy of Mr and F2B!- F2B makes the CONF (that each conf is based on) ...and MR supports this conf!"

Hendrik säger (00:05):
MANY ppl think, that this community is controlled only by MR and F2B!

Hendrik säger (00:02):
noe, i think, ur block every idea, coz ur affraid to loose ur control about this community

Hendrik säger (00:01):
all points: also the point, that u think, ur a that good player, that u dont have to listen to the opinion of noobs?

Hendrik säger (23:57):
yea, MR- society --- but MR is not E+

Hendrik säger (00:37): but ppl think so im
a typical martyr ...i HAVE to help the weak! Hendrik säger (00:38): even
if im not that storng

Hendrik säger (00:18):
all ppl think, that the highScore-clans are hidin smth

Hendrik säger (00:19):
the community is devided in 2 parts: 1 that has problems and 1 that has not!

He is of course entitled to whatever opinion he holds, but he makes a few critical mistakes. One is to assume that his windmill opponents disagree with him, we don't. If he had bothered to go through the plusN config thread he would notice MR members were the most vocal against it. But he didn't.

Another mistake is that he feels he is leveling the playingfield by scripting his LG (I'm fairly sure it isn't the only thing). Perhaps the biggest misconception he has committed to is to think that he has any say in how people choose to play, like the time we had two people in TS & spec and he condemned us as "cheaters". Or how he insits on telling people what team to join the second they join. It goes without saying he doesn't complain if he is on the winning team.

Oh, and I left out the quote when he declared he isn't Hitler, because he never cared about the weak.
