Hasn't happened in awhile...

Today I got banned from a zombies server because I killed the admin. Cool story. Yes it's going to be one of those threads. It happened on one of the Alpha Team Gamers zombies servers. Those guys are awesome sauce. Sigh. So in the first game, I was a zombie on Death Island. Humans in the water, and I was croutching towards some humans in the water, slowly bit by bit. Just as I've gotten very close, about to stand up and pounce, I get kicked. OK. BTW, this admin had been doing a lot of stuff like giving out invisibility to people, overshields, and he reset the game a few times, which was annoying. So after getting kicked, I come back into the server and ask why I was kicked. "lol, y was i kicked?" He said I was afk. I ask him, are you sure. He says, no that's what the server said. Long story short: I kinda berated him. I didn't swear, but just sort of drove the point home that he kicked me without cause. He didn't say a word. We enter the next game, and we are both human. I ran by him and meleed him on the head, whatever. He doesn't say anything, I don't say anything, and time goes by. Later he is infected. We have a close encounter, I have a shotgun, he dies, and INSTABAN! So, yeah, I take responsibility for agitating him a bit, but all's I'm sayin' is that banning someone from a server because you got pwnd in a frustrating manner is about as low as it gets. It's like taking your ball and going home because you got beat. And if anyone from Alpha Team Gamers reads this forum, this guy was playing as "Hercules." [Edited on 06.26.2012 3:50 PM PDT]

  • About the "Spanish" comment: it's not a problem with the admins speaking a certain language. It's a problem with you and them not speaking the same language.

An enormous amount of people riding on the "Halo Portable" train invaded Halo PC and caused it to be a place where most respectable players didn't want to stick around. It's not normal for a game to only have terrible players when it loses most of its population. In fact, it's [i]supposed[/i] to have the opposite. In the end, no matter how you look at it, the population being down (Which in reality it isn't anyway) has nothing to do with the quality when, under normal circumstances, it should [i]help[/i] the quality. If we had 100,000 more people buying Halo PC today we would just have 70,000 more players playing Rocket CTF on Hang 'Em High.[/quote] Okay you're right. I acknowledge that I'm wrong on this one. It takes a man to admit he's wrong.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Dr Syx [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Barnacle_Blast I think the amount of people playing does have some effect on the issue. See many of the people that used to play who became skilled players and skilled admins are gone now most of the time and don't play as much any more. Thus the imbeciles and noobs with "bad taste" who can't handle the lead are left to take over and make bad servers with bad gametypes. [/quote]How does that say the amount of people has anything to do with it? I'm saying that even if Halo PC had twice as many people playing as it already does right now it would still be filled with morons like it is right now. The problem isn't quantity, it's quality. There are already enough people for diversity across the servers but all Halo players ever want to do seemingly is play absolutely terrible gametypes. Most people with any sense left long ago because Halo PC wasn't good enough (The game itself, not the people) for them to continue to be interested in it. So now you have well over a thousand players who have absolutely horrid taste.[/quote] Okay okay. What I was trying to say is that the decline in population contributed to the emergence of the tasteless servers. I believe the population decline included skilled players and respectful admins. Many of the goodmins (lol) departed which left only the badmins and noobs. Essentially the admins with poor taste became the majority. Essentially because the population decline included skilled players and dedicated admins the badmins and less skilled players were left to run amuck and create servers with bad gametypes. And also what Btcc22 stated above is probably another contributing factor in the emergence of tasteless servers. It seems that most people just don't care enough about Halo 1 PC anymore to play hard core gametypes. The people that did are gone. The people that have remained just want to blow things up and mess around until Halo 1 PC dies. [Edited on 06.28.2012 4:16 PM PDT]

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Dr Syx So now you have well over a thousand players who have absolutely horrid taste.[/quote] Tens of thousands really, if not far more. The game is incredibly easy to pirate these days. A good deal of the players on pirate versions don't even seem to be aware of the fact that they're playing pirated copies thanks to the 'CE Portable' download that claims to be the demo but with more maps. Anyway, the point is that with a lower barrier to joining in (that is, not having to pay or go through the rigmarole of cracking), you end up getting an influx of players that are just passing through. They don't really care about the game and they'll be gone within a few months (if that). I believe you asked why Halo seemed to suffer so badly from this and I think the answer is two-fold. 1) The franchise name alone attracts people that otherwise wouldn't be interested in the game. 2) The game mechanics allow for it. Halo probably has the best customisation options of any FPS I've encountered if you're just interested in spraying the map with grenades, rockets and tank shells. TL;DR version: They seem to have bad taste because they're here for a cheap thrill to fill a bit of time.

There are enough people on Halo: Combat Evolved 1.09, Halo: Combat Evolved 1.04, Halo Custom Edition 1.09 and Halo Custom Edition 1.00 to fill several good servers but they insist on filling 16 player servers dedicated to either Sniper CTF, Infected or Rocket matches.[/quote] I think the amount of people playing does have some effect on the issue.

[/quote] It's a shame really, to improve and get used to the lead, one must keep trying (even if it means getting beat badly). I've finally gotten the hang of leading shots and Halo PC becomes far more enjoyable. It's just most people expect to be good out of the box and if they die alot, they'll resort to explosives (infinite grenades anyone?) or Rockets. Maybe someone should run a teaching server? I joke of course..[/quote] Yeah. I can lead pretty well and I still get killed a lot. My ratio is not negative but it usually is 1:1 which is like a 500 record. But, as you stated, they can't get better at it unless they learn how to lead. I understand that the lead can be frustrating for some of the new players. They're definitely used to playing games where there isn't a netcode problem. And I think by the time they get used to the lead Halo 1 PC will be dead. I believe they realize that and therefore don't care to learn how to lead. Thus they make servers with bad gametypes. But banning players for kicking your ass because they have been playing longer and know how to lead is dickish. And as I said before it's not worth playing on such servers with dickish admins. As for me I just stick to the servers with good classic style gametypes that have good, honest, and fair admins who don't bother banning people unless they really deserve it.

[/quote] I don't think I have a choice anymore. There aren't many servers left though, so it still sucks. [/quote] Well there are still some other good servers still standing that I play on. Just the population is decreasing. And yes the lack of populated servers sux. Look on the bright side in like probably 5 years or less Halo 1 PC will be vacant and you get to move on to a game that probably has matchmaking or dedicated servers with better admins. As sad as the death of Halo 1 PC is it's certainly inevitable.
