    Good Stuff

    We all know that you are your favorite admin. You don't need to say it.
  2. I agree that it at least needs to be nerfed somehow. It is a guaranteed kill without any risk to the person throwing it.
  3. The admins are all trying to figure out what’s best for the community based upon what the community has asked for and what we see on a daily basis. With regard to the idea that Nydekore essentially puts his foot down and goes against what others say because he is “ttt leader”, I can assure you that this does not happen. If an idea of his doesn’t make sense, I promise you that the other admins (mostly just me) let him know. It sounds like the other part of the problem is communication from the staff to the members on ongoing projects. We don’t normally talk about what we’re working on because we like to announce it once it’s done. Nothing is a “secret” though. Anytime you feel this way or want an update on what is happening with a specific idea or request, feel free to message me and I’ll give you a no bullshit answer. Keep in mind, some ideas are dumb and I won’t be afraid to tell someone such. This community does well because we actually try to listen to each other. Let’s keep in mind the way we communicate as well. The way you say an idea has an affect on how it is received. Let’s be nice to each other. It’s not hard.
  4. This is how I normally admin. I tell people that they did a wrong thing and how they respond is then how I deal with it. If they are a dick, then I will give slays and a warn. If it seemed like an honest not knowing of the rules, I will post my little rule bind and probably slay them. If someone has a warn for the same thing and they act like they didn't know, I will give slays and remind them of their previous warn then maybe sit and spectate and watch them. If they do it again after I leave, I will probably ban for that (depending on the severity of what they did and the punishability of the rule). Each case should be handled differently in my opinion.
  5. Since this seems to be a hot button issue with no place for people to bitch about it, let's use this area to constructively bitch. Constructively is the keyword here. If you propose an issue please propose a solution or you are just complaining. The goal of this thread is to let people air out issues while coming to a realistic solution that is then implemented. With this being said, my grievance is that there are is no expiration for a warn. I think that there should be a 6 month expiration date for each warn.
  6. The old rules worked for the 90 percent of people who followed the rules. The new rules help the admins deal with the other 10 percent who didn't. Gameplay is largely the same if you don't bend/break rules. If you didn't break rules before, you shouldn't have an issue now. That isn't to say that the rules are infallible. The warning system could use some tweaks, but it should still be here.
  7. Seems to be going well thus far. Nicely done.
  8. This was a great post until I didn't see my name. You only get a like. Nothing more.
  9. Don't be gone too long, man. You've always been a fun presence.
  10. Let's put the past behind us and try to start new. I enjoyed this sincere post and welcome to Defy again!
  11. I would give you one upvote. This is the amount that I gave.

    I'm Sorry

    I can see how some people might have a rough time dealing with me as I can be argumentative at times. I do apologize if I ever go over the top with that. It’s mostly when people lie to me about something. That definitely gets under my skin. With regard to the initial post, I have seen you getting better over the time I’ve known you. Of course there are moments where this is not the case, but it’s TTT. TTT can change your attitude pretty quickly with the wrong people on. I wouldn’t worry too much about it, and just try to have fun while you play.
  13. Sussing for cosmetics gives a distinct advantage to players who do not have cosmetics. That is also unavoidable when we have a server with cosmetics. If someone chooses to wear them, they are choosing to do so at their own risk. I would say that we should treat cosmetics the same as weapons. Most of the time, you can’t JUST sus off weapon as many people can have that weapon. There are special circumstances for sure. If someone is killing people with an auto sniper on tumbleweed, then I see someone with an auto, i will probably sus for that. The same should apply to cosmetics. Most of the time, you shouldn’t just sus for cosmetics. Now, if the server only has 7 people on and one person has a particular cosmetic that no one else has and I see that cosmetic do something then see it later in the round, I should be able to sus for that. Just my opinion, of course.
  14. "I did tend to break the rules a lot for fun." was the reason that I put you into the group that I did. I am sorry if this statement was incorrect. Breaking rules is not fun for most people and especially not admins. You can see why I would put you into that group. I never meant anything personal by it. It is not terribly difficult to not spam. If you were incorrectly banned, we have an appeals section for that. If you think the rule for spamming should be changed, I would disagree. Spamming is disruptive and has no place on our servers (in my opinion, of course).
  15. Welcome! We are always glad to have someone join who enjoys the community while following rules :D.
