Well there shouldn't be any standard procedure for insults. It is up to admin if he wants to ban or mute someone insulting others. Someone may get muted, someone else may get banned. Make it unfair and unpredictable, to reflect their behavior back at them. Never tell others to just ignore insults, encourage them to insult people back, or to regroup and attack that player. Being fair and modest is last thing you want, it makes you apathetic and tolerant, which in turn destroys you. Intolerance and brute force is what makes any society healthy.

you aren't using bright skins "for a change", you're using them so you'll have an advantage spotting other players. as far as i'm concerned, it's cheating and you've been around long enough to know that.

Green skins-first time i use it be may 2010.
Skins it no AIMBOT, no WALLHACK,no AUTOSHOOT!!!
Skins no give hard dominatione-only take good look!


its not a hard concept. by using these skins you have a clear advantage over players not using them. you could say "oh its like forcing models blah blah blah". well forcing models is an option in the menu, and those models came packaged with the game. its sad that its so common, not very sporting at all. if you've been playing so long, why would you need an advantage like that?

of course i told the other admins. im not the only one who considers it cheating.

I totally understand the issue here. IRL this is an issue because of upbridings and beliefs. But it is to be understood that everyone on the Internet (games/forums/whatever) are inhuman bots that have no idea what they are doing.

This is the internet. It is just words on the screen. If you know the person who says things to you, then you have a reason. Otherwise, welcome to the Wired.

Yes you have a point, it is not always as bad as it seems, many times people throwing insults at you are just frustrated for one reason or another. Even more, some people may use games to vent off, not to play for real. However in cases where things are just too annoying, admin case mute or kick out that person, if nothing else helps.

i've said before -- even when forcing stock q3 models, they designed them in such a way that any of them are hard to see on some map at some point.

Bright skins are on the border for me. I personally don't use them and I consider them to give an unfair advantage, but I could see how people might say the same thing about my 24" monitor combined with my jacked up fov, giving me far more peripheral vision than other players.

As for the insult, Shurik, you'd probably be more convincing and get more sympathy if you came on to the forums asking the admin's politely for a mute rather than demanding that someone be banned. Plus one exclamation point really says it all.

Although I gotta agree somewhat with Dyn's line of thought here. Insulting back or just handing out a general ass whopping is probably the best come back to an insult. You're probably only getting the insult because your game is getting to them, which is a good thing. Plus the more time they spend typing, the more time you have to beat their score.

i remember divinity bringing this up when dyn turned on punkbuster for q3 a while back but i can't find the post.

q3 can only scale what's on the screen. you're not going to be "seeing more" than a smaller monitor, it'll just be bigger. even with cg_fov at 140 or more, it becomes so visually warped that it becomes almost impossible to play (and if you can manage to play like that, more power to you.)

hmm, i had to go from my fov at around 130 on the 19" monitor to the 160 range when I went up to the 1920x1200 resolution and it almost seemed the same (as far as warping). Maybe it's all in my head.

Seriously. Like my "cg_fov 90" has helped me at all. I don't even know what it means but Hacksaw had me do it a couple years ago. :scared2:
