1) Banning unknown logs from games before they even get a chance to speak.
Couldnt remember any of my old nicks or passwords, so i jumped on recently with a totally new nick,
I then attempted to join a number of games being hosted, but was banned from virtually all of them before even having a chance to speak.
Even when PMing the hosts to let them know "< im good", i was simply ignored and left to linger in the lobby.
One of the biggest culprits was "jZampage", banned me numerous times without even knowing who i was, or asking, and before he tries to make any excuses, if wasnt a re, he didnt know who i was, i was simply an unknown nick, that he banned on multiple occasions before i even had a chance to type anything.
Yet this guy pretends to care about getting old players back?
What is the purpose if you are just going to ban them from games?
Do you have any common sense whatsoever?
In the past, hosting players would at least grant unknown logs the benefit of doubt, and ask a question like "what does bo mean?" , or "what does Q do?",
but not anymore, now its just insta banning.
In my first 2 games back, i was openly cheated on ladder games, i even posted video evidence of it, only for "the bil" to make up some excuse about the guy being a "just a modder", as if it wasnt any sort of a big deal, that i was being cheated in a ladder match.
Of course no action was taken by bil. just as he has taken little action to clean up the cheating on TS ever since hes been a cheat mod on this site.
Why on earth are players going to waste their time coming back to a game, where cheating is rife and nothing is being done to stop it?
since being back, ive played around 4 or 5 games, and ive been insulted in at least 3 of them, totally unprovoked as well, yet im being insulted, called a camper newb, a camper ****, and all sorts for no reason whatsoever.
With my vast skill and experience on TS, players should be thankful that im teaching them and educating them with new skills, showing them a style they havent seen before,
im not one of these button bashing monkeys on the servers nowadays, my style is educational for players wanting to develop their skill sets,
yet rather than give me the credit and adoration i rightfully deserve, players insult me and resort to cheating to spite me.
4) The fear of 1v1
I find it very puzzling, how so many are afriad of playing 1v1s,
I joined a game of a guy recently called "memorize", only to be banned instantly,
I PM'd him saying "im good", because i was on my new unknown log, only to be told to "**** off newb",
now when you are a player of my caliber, being called a newb doesnt sit very well,
so i issued a simple challenge, a 1v1?
Of course he did everything he could to avoid it, and even resorted to getting his buddy "dachziege" whoever is using that nick now, to play me in a 1v1,
of course i pulverized him with nod on terrace with "memorize" watching, yet this memorize guy didnt offer any sort of apology for calling me a newb, and still banned me from his next games,
i wasnt rude, i wasnt abusive, i didnt cheat, i simply offered him a 1v1 when he called me a newb,
yet that was enough for him to decide im not allowed to play in his games.!!
And its a common trend, players are terrified to 1v1, but will glady 2v2 all day long, i really think it has a lot to do with being able to blame allies for embarrassing losses,
And those points listed above are just the tip of the iceberg, really when you sit back and look at how TS players behave towards each other, is it any wonder the game is dead?
And those pretending to be trying to bring it back, and probably more responsible for killing if off more than anything else,
