Found this site listing TKers and such via another forum (thanks to Magnif. Bastard). Take a look...the Admins are trying to keep the boneheads out... :smack: :smack:

My understanding is that as the admin of the server you can block IP addresses and therefore changing the name will not allow the player back in. The address is unique, not the name...

Help me out all you admin types if I have this wrong. :eek:

:D It's so nice to have a department full of computer peeps a couple of doors down :agreed: I double checked and yes, if set up properly, the admin can block access to the server from a specific IP.

I saw this happen when I was playing over the weekend and noticed an instance where a particular player was banned for teamkilling. :spank: :spank: The admin saw the player trying to get back in the game under a different name and blocked them. So, the IP address was being blocked not the name.

Spider is correct, if you have rcon access, you can ban someone's IP address. I've done this a couple of times, and it works. The only bad thing is something in the makeup of RTCW will only allow you to ban so many people. So you can't go crazy and ban people left and right, you have to be more selective. :p

yes, they are, but change often if you have cable internet. with cable, each time you start your computer, you recieve a new ip address. So, if one of those people have cable, they could reboot their computer and be back in the server in minutes.

:lookaround: :lookaround: Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Dude....I doubt that everyone knows this...but you're right.

Voting to kick a player, banning IP's by the admin, Punkbuster, databases of abusive players...we have a bunch of ways to try and stop the boneheads and nimrods. Works sometimes...sometimes not. Was in a game the other night and we voted to kick a TKer; he went to the other team instead. Eventually he got the hint and left the game all together.

I guess this is the best we can all hope for - that the abusive players, players that think their teammates exist only for their support, name callers, etc. will start to understand that the vast majority of us only want to play and have a good time with an excellent game. They can always go back to stealing money from the Monopoly bank...

I'll get off the soapbox now... :uhm: :uhm:

It's my understanding that bans and kicks for x number of mins is determined by each copy of RTCW's cd key. The only way around it is to have mutiple copies of the game.
