Are you here only to discuss or do you actually play?

I do actually play.

Is there going to be a decision, or do you just want this thread to fade away into the nothingness ?

He doesn't play, maybe 1 game a year, and that's being generous, check his login records on the server for proof.

Also, if you check the threads he has made on this forum, they reveal his true agenda for being here, around 80% of them are attacking or bashing me in some capacity.

I have said it hundreds of times, and il; say it again, he is a forum troll, he doesnt care about TS, his only purpose for being here is to cause drama and annoy people, because thats how he entertains himself.

You only need to check all of the threads he has made, or check how often he has logged into XWIS to play for proof.

So I do play.

I paid for the game, I have a legit Serial... and have never shared it with anyone.
Serials are a good thing, and the only reason that "Farang" keeps derailing this thread, is because he hates ANY progress of TS.

Check the forum logs over the past few weeks, he hasn't posted anything, because I am not posting on progress threads, the moment I start posting in this progress thread, he's instantly here, trying to cause problems.

Yet again, I am going to ignore him... I just wish he'd ignore me.

So, what about those of us without serials? Would we need to PM you guys or go on our control panel and request a serial?

BUY? Do you think EA releasing this game as freeware is a MISTAKE? A better idea would be to post in a thread for a (FREE) serial, so admins can perform background checks, and then they PM you a new serial.

Allright, sorry about the yelling, did not have a good morning. I just find it kind of crazy to require a serial to be payed for TS. I understand the whole process (no serial = no banning) but I just think there is a better way for TS to save what is left of this great game.

And EA did make a big mistake with the "installer", I can tell you that.

We've got a good installer, so that has been rectified. You can still play non-tournament games without serial.

First of all:
I don't think it's legal to take some kind of "taxes" by pushing ppl to buy official game.


"Only licensed software can be used to access online services, download content and apply updates and patches. If the Software permits access to additional online features, content and/or services, only one user account may be able to access those features at one time."


I think more than enough was said here. Game now offers FREE connection to WOL / XWIS. You cannot permit some players who validate their copies while own producer leave he's own product to gesture of ppl.

Secondly:
If you want to ban cheaters or un-authoriesed user's You can't demand money from free product (Tiberian Sun). BUT - you may demand for use Your server. The only thing here to think is what is your term with EA. Are You owner of server or just Administrator of it? You may think about how to authories ppl through server by donations or so. It's in Your competence.

So this is my idea:
Move server to area where secondary programs are needed to play online - such as GameSpyArcade or Xfire. It can be changed by un-official patch - coz game is no longer supported.
It can hurt TS community - but also not affect to ppl who don't want to buy game coz they pass it, already.

P.S. My second account was KyouMass, but e-mail is no longer validate, and i don't remember password. I can prove it - but i don't know how :)
