*Sigh*

I need a place to rant here about rude admins and clans in general. I'm sick and tired of dealing with individuals like these and it bothers me even more so that I can't do a damned thing about it. For those who know me, I usually hang around Real Damage Infiltration or Elimination servers. Although there's a good number of them out there, only a small number of them are actually populated. So I try to avoid getting banned from any of them.

I consider myself to be quite an experienced SoF 2 player, with two years of experience to back it up. And although I may get frustrated by some of the god-like and questionable shots that some of these clan members are capable of, I try my best to keep quiet about it. For the record I can assure you that I've never raised my voice in anger in any of these cases. I usually just switch servers or spec them. So, moving on...

The first instance occured when I joined the {Kaiju} RD server. After loading the Hong Kong map and respawning, I immediately get teamkilled by some jerk. I kindly ask for the admin to restart because of the teamkiller, but they ignore me and play on anyway. I just sigh to myself and keep quiet about it until my next respawn. Again, the same person peppers me with the shotgun from behind. The guy now has something like 72% TK stats clearly visible.

So after about another TK I decide to take action on my own since nobody was kicking this moron off. I shotgun his ass and walk away. The TKer then proceeds to be a crybaby about me killing him. I calmly explain everyone what happened and why. For some mysterious reason I'm the one who gets banned. Yep, me--the person who had a small TK percentage while the other guy had nearly 99%. To this day I still can't rejoin the server and I haven't been able to find the website of this clan to report this problem.

The second instance occured today when I joined the [txt] RD server. A guy by the name of Spinner was p**** about me dying in a 3 v 2 game (1 guy on my team was afk, so it was more like 2 v 2). Everyone in the game was in the [txt] clan except me, so I figured that nobody would misbehave. Anyway, for each round I collected at least one kill for the team, whereas this teammate of mine simply died over and over again and got a similar, if not identical, kill ratio than me.

Here comes the fun part. Anytime I was the last one alive, he blamed me for being a noob and sucking just because I died a few times in a 1 v 1 fight. This happened about two or three times, where he continued with the insults until he decides to ban me for... dying. Throughout the entire time I didn't type a single thing. I just tried to play the game as good as I can while this guy with a nearly identical kill ratio was shouting insults. I didn't know whether to laugh or cry at his ineptitude.

Okay, now to my last point. I understand every game has its share of lamers, but it really angers me to see that a few rude clan members would get away with such bull. The unfortunate part is that most of these guys usually play nicely. I haven't had any problems with them for months now. All it takes is for one clan member to act up and get you banned from the entire server, not allowing you to have fun with the rest of the clan anymore or play in any of their games. That's all it takes to ruin the whole thing--one moron.

Right now I've had no luck finding the website for either of these clans. If anyone has any information, please help me out so I can get this sorted out. Thank you.

The clans were: {Kaiju} and [.txt.] Both of them host Real Damage Infiltration servers.

Feel free to add your own stories about admin abuse and how you handled it. I'd be very interested in hearing about them so I can get some advice on it.

ya know man ...some clans are just lame... but i have to tell you ...we don't restart maps... we just let the tkers get kicked. and make sure those that are starting trouble get kicked. you could give us a try ..we have a couple ellim maps in cycle. but mostly tdm and ctf. and ya know ..there are many other servers out there....and you are right most aren't that populated with elim and inf, but ..we do vote and play some maps that way . so give it a rip or not ...sup to you

I hate that clan too, I get kicked a lot and when we scrim them, they all run off when we're winning. Bunch of lamers.

Also, check out our server EliteForce|RealDmG|UK... We may have a laugh around with the admin powers, but it's only a game, and we stop after a few rounds. :)

Thanks, Horizon, I really appreciate it. Things seemed to have chilled a bit recently and it looks like a lot of Real Damage servers are staying active for the most part. I suppose any clan member who has the nerve to ban me for dumb things like not winning enough or winning too much or whatever is actually doing me a big favor by not having to deal with their BS and whining in the long run.

I should note that I meant no offense to any of the mentioned clans. I know there are some good players in these clans that are friendly... but damn, please for the love of god screen the people you hire. Look after them closely and give them some type of probation period before giving them admin access to the servers. One moron can really give your clan a bad image.

So please, all you clan recruiters out there look after who you hire! Wearing a clan tag bears many responsibilities. Having the best player in your team means nothing if they publicly act like an immature little brat. It's about the attitude they hold about the game also which makes them a good player.
