-Bi0haz4rd-'s abuse of CT disguise

Discussion in Admin Abuse started by Buri, Apr 9, 2009

  1. Feb 11, 2009
    Earlier the map was on zm_roy_the_ship_64 and for the first few rounds everyone was doing their own thing when [pF] viva got the idea to gather us all up at the front of the ship. We went along and formed a wall of CTs that was damn well impenatrable. For the next 2 rounds we amassed at the front, the most vulnerable spot, and dominated. By the 3rd round we had amassed once again and mid-round -Bi0haz4rd- shows up. I teasingly tell him, "You can't break through, you'll get ruined!", proud of the unity my fellow CTs were displaying. He begs to differ and I laugh it off. For the next few minutes me and the gang of CTs pick off zombie one by one until we notice people getting infected out of nowhere until every last one of us was infected. Turns out that -Bi0haz4rd- had disguised himself as a CT, a new trend amongst admins. Unlike previous times the CT disguise was used for malice instead of lulz for the lack of a better term. He laughed and went, "What'd you say, Buri? That I couldn't get you?", proving that without a shred of uncertainty he did what he did knowingly. I joke around with -Bi0haz4rd- all the time but I always made sure to make him aware that I was just joking, and never took it too far. I hate to do this but I really feel that he went too far. I try hard to keep my kdr and rank up but when things like this happen it just drives me nuts, along with a bunch of other people. I wasn't the only one to express discontent, many protested against -Bi0haz4rd-'s actions but he laughed it off as if he had done good. I'm hoping he can be warned against this sort of action and that the ability to disguise zombies or swap teams (which is what I think they're doing when the disguise) be taken away from new admins, as it has no real use and has a lot of potential for abuse. If I missed anything or misstated anything there were also 2 other admins on hand that can vouch for my claim and/or correct it. They were [pF]viva and [pF]whitey. I hope this gets looked into soon and I'm sorry for any inconveniences this proves.

    damn right your not...
    I talked to him in admin chat about this so you wouldn't see it buri. I do this as to not bring about chaos and drama in the server with people chimming in when something important needs to be said. He will not be using the ct skin anymore and bio just to make certain this is clear this is your warning on the matter.

    sometimes i dont think and this was that one time and i learned it from someone and i dont remember and i thought that it would be funny if i went ct and kill other cts so yea :frown:

    I am probably the most guilty for using ct skins but I never ever attacked humans with it. I think that was too far for a joke but I know bioharzard is a good admin and hes not going to do it anymore.

    sigh, I think this is going to need to be removed from admins. I've seen admins do this numerous times. So much so that some new admins didnt know it is not ok to do.

    Me and Biohazard talked about it and I came to forgive him but there are obviously a lot of others that were greatly upset. I understand that he made a mistake and I'm glad he saw it. My biggest reason for posting was to have something done about the feature. I think there as a few tiny features that shouldn't be immediately available to admins and should be earned over time. I think to deny admins privelages is to slap paying members in the face and I think with a tiny bit of moderation abuse can be cut down while not denying anyone anything, but putting them through short trial periods to unlock some of the more trivial features. These are just suggestions of course and I'm no one to be suggesting things but I hope things can be done in a way as to not punish everyone but to reward extensive knowledge of the rules. Me for example, I'm just a lowly member of the clan but ever since the clans went up I've been making sure to familiarize myself with the rules, as to give the clan and server a good name.

    We are a clan no more.

    Taking away the feature? I'd say thats too far. We are humans and we make mistakes or bad judgments daily, we need room to learn from it. Simply taking it away does not solve anything. If that was the case, admins in the future will turn out just rules spammers. >.<
  10. Feb 21, 2007
    Is there a better solution? I tried to think of one, but really the command they are using to do this is not necessary for zm, and I've already told the admins several times they shouldn't be doing this, and yet here is a complaint about it. Also, I am tired of players asking the admins for the human skin when they are zombie. To me, it seems like a pointless temptation to keep around when the higher admins arent around.

    Mad ryhmes.

    I agree with Rets, this should be removed and I might just be busy this weekend...

    I think your right rets, some admins might not be able to handle the pressure. I admit I always turn to human skin and the most and only thing I love doing is having zombies chase me around and trying to take a stab. Your right about having other players ask to turn into a human zombie or harass even, some new admins or even me might not be able to handle that pressure when the higher up admins are around

    yea that is the way i was

    back in the day, that would crash the server ^_^

    Here's what's up:

    1. Take away "Swap Player to Opposite team/Swap T/ Swap CT". We do not need it.
    2. Take away any other pointless command. The "Play Sound" feature doesn't even have sounds in it. Useless. Delete.
    3. If anyone asks to have their skin swapped out for a CT skin, tell them "No." If asked why, say "I don't need to explain this to you." If they continue to badger you, mute them.
    4. Why would there be pressure? In all my time of playing any variant of an online game, I have never heard something like that. Plus, there are server logs. Anything you do will show up on them. I'm not trying to scare you guys, I'm just telling you that you are being watched constantly. Have Rets give you a final rundown on what you shouldn't ever do. Even if you want to mess around, people will find it annoying or unprofessional and tell you that you shouldn't do it.


    And Alex, it still does, I think. I just haven't seen one of them do it.

    (That could also be why the server seems to be crashing a lot.)

    I took care of swap team yesterday, anyone who used it to move themselves to spec. type "spectate" in console. or bind it to F4 like I did

    I used to do something similar to this.... I used to use something to make myself LOOK human. Then i'd join people in barricades and stuff and wait until they noticed they could shoot me. It was purely for my amusement only. I would never kill anyone with it. That's totally out of order. But hey.... Everyone makes mistakes eh? Except Retslag.... He's just a dirty hacker.
