Active moderation required on the TOG servers
This will be a copy of another post from the "Contact Us" subforum, as I'm new to these forums and unsure of where such a topic should be posted. If either (or both) of these threads are in the wrong spot please do not hesitate to delete, or inform me so I can delete, them. Thanks for your time.
Let me just state (as this is my first post here) that I love the service TOG provides, and have been actively playing alongside TOG users such as Cat_In_The_Hat since ye olde Red Orchestra Ostfront days.

Anyway, the problem lies in the Chivalry TOG servers, there has been a bad crowd around chivalry over the free weekend and, unfortunately, some of them seem to have stayed around. Over the past few days I have had some very poor interactions with users, problems that could easily have been solved by having a moderator present and through the use of persistent bans.

Just to impress upon you the severity of this, the server has been cleared out of legitimate players on several occasions, due to events such as (and I won't name any names, none of them were members of any clans):

  • Users repeatedly teamkilling and leaving before a votekick could finish.
  • Similarly to no.1, users joining with friends and manipulating votekicks to not only not get kicked after repeated teamkilling, but to kick those trying to restore order in the server.
  • Users spamming the chat by breaking up their sentences into individual words and generally insulting other players, to the point where the chat became unusable.
  • Users (often with friends, again) spamming the voicechat and then, once muted by the majority of the server, initiating votekicks and teamkilling.
Over the last 3 days I have seen these instances almost every time I join a TOG server.

Presently I have started screenshotting these instances, to gather evidence, though I understand these forums do not permit public name and shame.

Thank you Peregrine. I will bring this to the Chivalry's game division attention.

wtftrauma is the Division Captain and has been notified. All evidence may be forwarded to him, Dressy or I via PM.

The gathering of evidence is important and I thank you for doing so. I will lock this thread and all communications can continue via PM.
