There should be a filter that we can enable to filter out all those punks who have private password protected games that no one else can join. There are so many that it is getting hard to find a public game. These non-sharing idiots take up useable oxygen and game space, not to mention game time trying to sort through all of them. There should not be any password protected games allowed.

Something Ticking me off lately is clans taking over public servers.

Recently I was playing on public server and I happen to notice a few of the new players joining the sever were all on the same clan (I'm not naming names). This is not unusual as you know, then the same thing happens again three of the new players were clanners (a different clan though). So the play continues for awhile, both teams racking in the Points/frags, they compliment each other, then start talking about how they should skirmish sometime. Well one said lets kick everyone thats not in our clans, and play now. I said "is this your server?" they said no. Then preceeded to kick everyone while some more of there members joined. This royally ticked me off. This was a good PUBLIC Server.

My point is if clans want to skirmish DO IT ON THEIR OWN SERVERS. Me and everyone else on that server were having a good time and those boneheads came along and voted us out.

Has anyone else seen this on the servers?

:lookaround: :lookaround:

I agree with Big and Major...if you don't like the playground take your ball and play somewhere else...we just want to have fun :moon: :moon: For the most part, I haven't had the kicking problem and in fact like to play with clan members when I can. Have no intention of joining a clan though cause I think it is more fun to play on a team with random people that at times could be from all over the world.

When I play with several members of the same clan, there have been instances where at first they tried to kick me. :mad: :mad: But as the game went on, in the majority of cases I was doing better than some of the clan so I guess they figured it was a good idea to keep me.

I have a general rule of thumb for any game I join - go find another server if there are TKer's, SKer's, dumb Lt's, or constant voting. I can always find a good group to play with and generally like all the stages - Beach, Base, whatever....have also started to really learn some new ones like MarketGarden and Blitzkreig Forest...so, there is always a good game somewhere...

You know if Clans were proud of who they are they would show how good they are by playing all takers as a TEAM, not hiding. There should not be any PRIVATE games allowed.

Is your clan a PROUD one or worthless ? Let everyone see how good you think you are unless your scared........

i like the concept of clans, i thought the whole point in them was to get their own server to game on and not hi-jack 'public' servers. it aint right. Also, see if u join a clan u have to give up any social life to play on the clan. thats why i turned my offer of joining a clan down.

The other night I was playing Market Garden like i have been for the last couple of weeks. Shortly after I started playing someone said that this was going to be the last game before the server was going to be shut down or something. I figured it was their server so i didn't think much of it. So roughly an hour later the game (same game!) was finally over. The game restarted in warmup where it was 999 seconds or something :uhoh: I said whats going on? I'm not waiting that long! He (part of clan) told me to stay cause they were going to start playing again. So I stayed a bit and everyone started "practising" their moves and whatnot. They kicked all the non clan guys and told everyone else to type in the password. I never done it before, so they told me, I typed it in, then a minute later my connection went bad. The whole thing was weird. I didn't think you could take over a server like that, you guys think it was a public one, or their own? Can you set a password on a public server? :confused:

Anywho, just like Crunch, i'm not interested in joining any clan. I don't get much playing time so it's not really worth it for me.

I just spent 10 minutes to find a PUBLIC game to play in, Just as I spawned the game was over. One of the Clans, wish I could have got the name said, “Everyone must go, we are going to play alone”, and kicked me out.

I tried to get back but “INVALID PASSWORD” came up. This is wrong, no way should a Clan be allowed to just kick out people for no reason. These ROUGES should be banned from RTCW servers and their computers fried. If I could have remembered the clan name, I would have named it and kicked them from every game I ever found them in for the future.

These jerks screw it up for the guy or gal who just wants to have some fun. Not all clans are bad just a few, we need to DISBAND and DISMEMBER those bad ones……

:furious:

I just wish that if you're a clan running a server and want to make it public accessable, then you should at least acknowledge that in your server's name such as:

(TRC) clan server PUBLIC

or if private:

(TRC) clan server PRIVATE.

I think this could go a long way twords stopping confusion when you get kicked because of a "practice session" or a "skirmish". You can leave things such as no ff, map names, or any other non-sense out of the title. Thats why you can look at server info by pressing that button!

Thats my thoughts on the matter, What do you guys think about that?

P.S. I wasn't reffering to any clans in my examples, I came up with those tags just for example only, THANKS!

:deal: Actually I think it would be better to just "Ban The Clans".
