OCR TF2: New Server forthcoming - new server IPs and other stuff

Recommended Posts

I think that you hear friendly spies decloak as well, although I don't think people ignore it. People really hate spies and the majority of spies on the OCR server are actually pretty damn good; leaving a spy unchecked simply because it might be a friendly one is just a poor choice.

I love how anyone with an [ocr] tag can play entire songs over mic and no one complains, but when I play a single sound clip, everyone votebans me. It is irrelevant that I was the number one scorer that round and was a team player despite having never played the map before. DO... DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHO I AM? I'M KIND OF A BIG DEAL.

Looking past the fact that I administrate a server that encourages micspam, I find the fact that your low tolerance for cute cartoon noises is rather contradictory to your high tolerance for people with annoying voices that refuse to unpin their finger from the "talk" button throughout the round.

Just sayin'.

That was bullshit, shpladoink. You should have been warned THEN kicked THEN banned, at the very least.

For those who weren't there, Spectreshot put up a voteban on shpla for micspamming for about 10 seconds during his song. It passed by about 70%, and he was banned for 30 min.

For the record, however, there were only about 3-4 regulars on the server at the time, so it was the random irregulars who voted you to get banned. It's not like the OCR officers had a meeting and decided to ban you or anything.

IN OTHER NEWS: A buddy and I were talking about unlockable weapons for the Engineer. Our biggest concern is that we need the Engy to be more portable and less campy.

Our brainstorm led to this: Aperture Science drones. They would be somewhere between a level 1 and level 2 sentry gun that cannot be upgraded. It would be online in about 2 seconds, and it would take 100 metal to build. You could build two total with a jarate-like delay in between.

The biggest drawback is that it would have very little health. Like, 1-2 shots and it's knocked over. ALSO, the FaN would be super effective against it because it would knock it over in one shot (or any other future weapons with knockback). The Engy would need to repair it to turn it online again, which doesn't require metal. A knocked-over drone could also be destroyed with additional firepower.

That might explain why I'm being caught an awful lot. Bloody spycheckers D8

Oh, that's hilarious that the guy playing the song was the one that proposed the vote. I figured the only reason it passed was due to the random pub players, but I literally didn't even get a chance to finish typing my comical retort at the vote before it was passed (I didn't expect it to).

It's not a huge deal, at any rate; just wanted to voice my disdain.

Spectreshot, as much as I loved him in the beginning, is going downhill just like Tiddlywink. I would ban him from the server just for what happened to shpladoink, but since I'm not an admin, that's not up to me.

In other news, there was a hacker online last night sometime around 1:30 or 2. Huntsman sniper speedhacking, aimbotting, etc. Doubled the points of anybody on either team on Dustbowl 1 in minutes and he even joined the server well after the map had started. I calmly told the people online (mostly pubs) to type voteban and select the guy with no name, and he was gone shortly after. Just goes to show that you don't need an admin on to get rid of people who are ruining fun for everyone else (although I still think that the admin list should include people who are online a lot).

Wait, why does Spec have the ability to put anything to a vote? I would play right now but I am in transit still.

He needs to be taught a lesson.

/voteban Spec 1000 "No more d00d, seriously."

Spectre's side of the story is that he stopped micspamming(lol), and shpla's went on for about ten minutes. Allegedly, everyone asked him to stop repeatedly.

In lieu of an actual witness, shpla's account is more credible. Spectre is a consistent whore for attention, and gets pissy whenever someone challenges his claim to the micspam throne, so to speak.

Hammer Time isn't far off, I think.

Well, it sounds like Chadly was there - thoughts?

I don't always get along with shpla, but I still think he's more credible than Spectreshot.

I think that, at the very least, Spectreshot's reserved slot should be pulled. This would limit his ability to start votes.

I haven't been on recently but if he's been doing what's been said then Reserved slot removal sounds like a good plan... though I cannot remember who he is precisely, I remember the name that's for certain but not the character behind the name.

Spectre plays terrible music and gets annoyed whenever people try to play better music/ask him to stop.

But yes, using a !voteban command against shpla was really fucking retarded.

!voteban Spectre.

anybody who thinks 'Jizzed In My Pants' or any other song by that group of idiots should be banned forever from every TF2 server in existence

any other song by that group of idiots

Hey fuck you, those guys are awesome. The Lonely Island is a great group, and they're getting the popularity they deserve.

Bleck stop having a terrible opinion about everything.

But I will agree that song has been overplayed, and when something is sung terribly by a 12 year old, it does get annoying, but don't say anything about Lonely Island.

(also your sentance is missing something, or you're Canadian gibberish just doesn't translate well)

I'M ON A BOAT MOTHAFUCKA!

Oog. Ironically, I went on my first boat ride in my life a couple of weeks ago. DEFINITELY not a boat person.

But anyway, enough of that. How about that Backburner? =D

I still don't think anyone who doesn't post occasionally on the forums (or at least in this thread) should get a reserve slot. I don't think I've seen SpectreShot on the forums; is he even a member of the community? Or is he just some random pub/friend of a regular who started playing on the OCR server a lot?

In any case, reserve slots should be given to people who are OCR people, not random assholes who won't shut the hell up.

I'd be all for that myself. At least if you join the forum and post here occasionally it shows you think a little more of the TF2 community on the server than it just being a place to mic spam and whine about people not liking your mic spam.

I would have to agree.

Though micspam occasionally is funny, most of the time, if you want to listen to motivational music, fire up your own mp3 player.
