Experiences of my day to day life of playing SOF2 MP in the following order:
boot SOF2 MP
sort by ping
sort by amount of players
double click on server
. ... .... ..... ......
Downloading some stupig flags *1 min later* Downloading lame ass clan sounds *3 mins later* Downloading Bloodpatch 03488434 *30 seconds later* Downloading crappy map that no one plays apart from this clan *10 mins later*
Restart above x amount of times until you get to a suitable map with desired ping and nice amount of users only to find it is some Public server filled to the brim of 12 year olds running around shouting abuse at each other, TK'ing in abundence and add a blatant aimbotter with a ratio of 210/12 to the mix who has clearly been in this server for a long time and shows no sign of wanting to leaver either and has full knowledge that he is blatantly aimbotting because everyone is shouting at him telling he is a cheater. WHY CANT PUNKBUSTER DETECT THESE AIMBOTTERS!? :confused: :mad:
I then begin to play and the experience is just awfull.
Though sometimes i am lucky, the process is quick to get on and i arrive on a normal clan server where the peeps are cool. <-- why cant all servers be like this? :(
So do you agree with this? im sure it never used to be as bad as it is now.

I never had that before. :p
If you don't want all them crappy downloads, TURN YOUR DOWNLOADS OFF!! Simple. :)
Keep searching for servers, and if you find a good one, stick it in your favourites. :nodding:
I know how you feel man. But, Like HoriZoN said, turn off auto-downloading, and keep searching.
There are good servers out there. Not as many as there used to be, but there are still some left. I'm sure you'll find one that will suit you. :nodding:
It's amazing how many servers there are that are always empty you would think that the ppl that pay for them to be up and running would just shut them down and save themselves some money but maybe they just have a little bit of hope that someone will connect.......not gonna happen, anyways yeah as they've said abouve turn auto d/l's off click server info to see what the server is running then you'll know wheather you have what you need in order to be able to join the server, with auto d/l's on you could be d/l'ing some stuff that you REALLY dont want if you know what i mean better safe than sorry, always d/l the stuff yourself sof2files that way you know what you are getting................................wipes sweat off head after all that :lol:
besides everyone puts Show Empty : No so no one will see them.
well i got some dumb admin kick me off a server because when i was playing i kept dieing and it said i killed myself. Then the admin banned me saying i was to dumb or something. Turns out the admin was the one who made me kill myself.
linux hall of death has no downloads, its just bare bones. but the unfortunate amount of cheating that has been racking up in there, people used to just all spec, and the cheater would leave, but now it seems the groups of three come in, and continue to play with each other for an hour or so. The good list: Bob Denart Durden The Tracer analog arsonist tip-toe the bad list: cow el venas f__K the papers
you can always try our server ..... yes we have the "stupid" clan flags and a few other "stupid"things with our names on it, but you can get them at our website with directions for install. not to mention the "stupid" maps that only our clan play, they are packed in a map pack you can get right on the front of our home page. so about 5 min of dling, and you restart your game and in you go. yeah we have some "stupid" stuff .....but even some of the admins from soffile.com have taken their time to dl the stuff to play at DS. And they rarely get time to play. so there it is, you can download at the server at the crappy 5k/sec speed....... or visist our site first, then come play ......you may even register and make some posts .....could be fun. but .........sometimes "stupid" fun is the best fun.

Hmm sounds like my server :)
Yep you were caught aimbotting bud. On my server if your are caught cheating, an admin will place you on the cheat list, which will allow you play, but every kill you make will count against you . We have no mercy for cheaters. The other unique thing about my custom rocmod server, is you cannot see the admins while they are online specing you :).. On average, I have atleast 2 admins on 24 hours a day. I have 22 admins total, that love doing their job.

:lol: :0wned: that does'nt sound like a dumb admin to me, good job :beer:
