    No duplicate names at one time in a server

    Anyone agree this is something that should be implemented? Today is the second time some troll has pretended to be me and joined the game to talk **** and cause my team to lose by suiciding, the usual childish stuff... I'm not saying this out of anger, but I do think it would be common sense to prevent such things.

    In fact, I think it would be smart if they enabled us to register a name into the stats system and then log into that account in-game, so noone would be able to alias as a registered name.. but unregistered names would still be possible as long as they're not taken. This is for UT2007, naturally.

    Yeah good idea. This way u know who ur playing against. I have also played some matches against myself. :weird:
    With this system names like: [BL]Berserker, (BL)Berserker, |BL|Berserker would still be possible, but i think ppl will remember the real Tag.

            Well actually, duplicate names are already diallowed. I'm sure when i've tried to use the same name as someone else in a server using setname before it didn't work. I think....

            However, i know there is a way around that (and your idea), by using the 'no-name thingy' (dare i say hack) and tagging that somewhere in the name. It then appears as if the exact same name is used.

            And as »madMar†y» already said, as well as that way i just attempted to describe, almost-identical names can't be stopped.
