    In the meantime, I will do the only thing I can do: quit playing on your server. Maybe when your server dies he will quit spamming.

      I'm not protecting him, I'm protecting the server. Read what I wrote. He gets new IPs and Hashes comes back and goes ape sh!t.

      What I'm afraid of, is if I ban him, then he will ruin the server, just like he has ruined/is ruining Epic Greed.

      Your threat to stop playing on BD is silly, he goes on any popular server and spams at will. You're just going to have to stop playing all together if you want to avoid him entirely.

      You also need read what I wrote. I didn't say I wouldn't ban him, I said I would try it if he was bothering people too much. From what I've seen he is no worse than some other players. Now it sounds like he is being too disruptive. So, we can try banning him.

What you see here is a result of you letting it carry on regardless of what you think is your best action. It's not my fault, nor responsibility, it's yours. I'm sorry you have to go through this. You said it yourself, it's doing more damage than good. Shut the server down if you don't want to deal with people asking in a public forum what their spam friend request is about but putting words in my mouth and to say I have an agenda is unbecoming.
        I have no control over what people name themselves and how they behave on other servers. You act like I have some kind of magic wand I can wave and make it all go away. Get real.

        You puts the words out there, and they are quite clear. You;re implication was obvious, and wrong.

          You guys want me to ban him? Sure thing. My prediction is Beer Drinkers will get nailed repeatedly, and suffer a similar fate to Epic Greed.

            I don't know what this means. Again; he doesn't hate, doesn't spam, and doesn't cheat. Sure, I hear him bragging about spamming other servers, but why is that my problem? My reason for banning him now is two fold. 1) He is drawing too much negative attention to Beer Drinkers, and 2) now I see the community is pressuring me to do it because he is apparently too disruptive? I don't know, he doesn't seem to be very annoying and doesn't even play that much.

            Whatever.

              People now say it was other things but at the time, when a new game was released, a drop happened and until this last week, more were starting to join again but it has dropped again(I blame xmas, even the war server has dropped a bit), throughout the day the max is still 15-17 players and 2-3 spec's.

              jarred came later...
              I saw what happened, and I'm very familiar with the time line. People were sick of his bots constantly spamming and Epic being unable to do anything about it.

              • FIX FOR INGAME SPAM MESSAGES from Jarred

                Find the INT folder under:
                Program Files(x86)\Unreal Tournament 3\UTGame\Localization\INT

                Open up 'UTGameUI.int' with notepad, find [ToastMessages] and the string/code is:
                RecievedFriendInviteSpecific=***delete this part of the message***

                Once you've deleted the specified text save the file to desktop. Then backup the original in a safe place, and then take the saved file on Desktop and just install it back into it's original location.

                This method should work for most of the lines of code under [ToastMessages] I say most because I haven't tried them. e.g. alot of people get Invites to play a game. Just delete the text after:
                RecievedGameInviteSpecific=***delete this part of the message***

                A tiny grey mark appears on the bottom of the screen but no text message appears.

                Now watch this and laugh your ass off: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...EjtX4_-ks&NR=1

                  What fate? the fate of a very active server?
                  WAR players are actually playing greed as well, so it's not like he has single handedly killed the Greed servers, on the contrary, it's grown and the skill level is getting insane...
                  And the mess that you guys probably encouraged has basically turned into "Oh it's just that stupid kid spamming again"
                  Necris posted a temp fix (I say "temp" because the kid will get the hint after he's banned from every server in UT3)
                  If you're so worried about your server then educate your regular players about the immaturity that is this person.
                  As well as the S*it storm that will ensue once you ban him, link them to the post on how to stop the spam friend requests etc.
                  Doing otherwise is just enabling yourself to say "I told you so!"
                  Through active administration and being part of the community that plays on your servers, its nothing that can't be taken care of.
                  Just ask Flak and Wikkid (and Necris' temp fix), they've done a fantastic job of keeping the immaturity at bay.

                  And to stay on topic (Before this thread gets closed)
                  I play on the Official Epic servers, if there's a game going, I'm there!
                  And Binkys server, because it's a crazy fun time with all the mods he has installed.
                  pacificnorthwestserver
                  Sometimes the RIIP server because they have a variety of custom Greed maps (With the single scoring hole for both teams)

                    IMO it isn't a very active server. Matter of fact it's pretty dead most of the time. It isn't anything like it was before it was spammed into oblivion.

                      See, this is why people are suspect of you...
                      I have no idea what diablo is. As far as trying to brag for him you're full of it. Period.

                      I saw what he did to Epic Greed, and it wasn't pretty.

                        How would you know? you don't actually play there regularly.
                        Kinda like I have no clue what sort of traffic your server sees, as I don't play there.
                        I'm with other folks on this one, I suspect you are that player, and if not, then at the very least, in collusion with that player.
                        Your sole concern is traffic on your server, "If I ban him my server count will drop!". At the same time putting down the player count on the Greed servers, when in fact, it actually has grown. (I know this because I've been playing Greed on Official Epic servers since it was released.)
                        "He's" on a rampage to bring people to your server for the weak excuse\reason of "him" being banned for violating Greed server rules.
                        Rather convenient set of events if you ask me.

                        And this is the last time I post about this, this thread has gone way off topic.
                        This is about active servers folks play on. I suggest maybe taking it to PM's at this point.
                        Otherwise Flak is going to just close this thread.
                        If she hasn't already decided to do so.

                          I understand your desire to protect a (your) popular UT3 DM server.

                          I appreciate it. If he is banned I will continue to play at BD.
