Post by PepeAmpere » 14 Feb 2018, 23:40

BA doesn't manage the infrastructure so there is nothing BA can do about it.

(Overkillhosts got their botflag removed)

Definitely 10. I'm 99% sure what's happening is that their SPADS is still configured to host 16 (or something), and when it's limited to 10 it tries to rehost. Apparently there's an update to SPADS to fix the issue, so I'm assuming they haven't updated their spads installation, and have left the max player config at wherever it used to be.

What we really should do is implement VPN blacklists, mandatory email registeration for hosting, and possibility for autohosts to require its players to have their email verified by Uberserver. Then these hosts and players who repeatedly harass the community could just be banned for good.

Can a lobby admin please change the accounts password, so the autohost cannot log in and spam anymore?
It is obviously not properly maintained and an unnecessary cost on our infrastructure.

Thank you

Even ban is not proper solution, because the bot will try to log all the time.

I guess the owner of the bot is known, because there was someone who asked for bot-flags historically. Can someone who gave the bot those flags originally tell us who asked for it?

The bot is trying to host BA game. I agree you cannot control all people and their bots, but I would expect positive attitude from you if you care about BA reputation. Do not tell me there is noone from BA community than can do anything towards solving this issue.

Btw, the second bot i didnt mentioned in the original post but which is doing the same thing is called OverLoadHost_FFA

This communication was already attempted. The player in question is unwilling to take the bot offline. He feels slighted by having had the bot flag removed.

IIRC, the player is actually banned from the forums, too. They're one of those couple of super toxic kids who use openly racist and homophobic language and just troll everyone.

How the community has any tolerance towards this kind of behaviour is simply beyond me.

I don't think that there's nothing we can do, I think that there is a possibility, although I don't really like it. Please someone suggest that perfect option I haven't seen :)

Clearly whoever's responsible for the host feels untouchable – i.e. we're (at least a little) upset and currently we haven't been able to do anything about it. All they have to do is wait and they'll get what they want. So some kind of consequence – banning him from all BA hosts, for example – might do the job. Even if there are ways around the bans, it will create an inconvenience, especially when an admin is online to ensure no bandodging.
