Warning: please don't sit in a spec slot afk
« on: April 20, 2018, 11:27 »
As per the title of this post, please don't leave your computer connected to the game server when you're not actively spectating (or playing).

If an Admin needs to spec they will send you a message. If you don't respond you are likely to be removed from the server.

 You may be unable to reconnect at all until the next map so be sure to reply in chat to confirm that you are there. That will reduce the likelihood of you getting chosen to be kicked.

Afk players in a player slot, or players not actively playing the game (for example exploring the map in a vehicle or not moving)  will be kicked without any notice!

why not apply the kick timer on spectators? if no mouse movement/key strokes -> kick

As a former active spectator, this hurts. That's all I can say.
Also, I'm against the auto-kick option, not fair for all spectators that just like to enjoy watching the game.
I used to spectate a lot and I know players that like to do that too, like Blacks, or Pohnus. It is fun to see what are other players doing or just watch the game, to find other guys sabbing/cheating, etc.
The auto-kick option is a problem if you want to see someone in 1st view, because you have to move nothing in your computer while doing it.

The thing is if you do not reply by an admin in spectate  by the 3 rd time ..  then  you will be kicked   that simple .... It is also taking bandwith  anyway ...

Have a great day all

see you in server  :)

Hey!
Just now. The server is full, I entered as spec. And I was kicked just in 10 seconds. What the hell?

Now I was kicked from the game  :(

Maybe the reason is that admins did something against that fake Caracal. And now I have a new IP.
Admins, please fix the problem.  :'(

Nah - you have a dodgy new IP address. I've fixed it for you
