On Friday night I played RTCW MP for the first time in fact it was the first time I had ever played an online game, it was very good until the idiots turned up, why do people join a team and then kill there own team mates, Whats the point!
One clown who called himself Iamyourfriend shot me in the back on at least four occasions, I got fed up with this so the next time he did it I shot him and got kicked from the server for it, it was not as if he shot me accidentally he did it at the spawn point or when just leaving it, this has put me off online gaming probably for good.
Slightly cooler than a n00b

Do not be put off!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
in all walks of life you get arseholes, this is unfortunate there are scores of really good servers out there play around after a few days youll recognise people get to know the prats and avoid the servers they use. Down load the latest map packs and meet the dedicated players using them the prats dont normaly play on these they just tend to use the beach, for a personal tip down load "d day 2" there are a couple of really good american servers that use it with a really good bunch of people playing. i also have a lot of fun "chating" with people from all over the world . DONT BE PUT OFF
Yea, don't give up, it's a great game, but you'll find butt-nugget-headed ppl everywhere. Try different servers and custom maps!!!

As far as why they do it, these are the players who don't have the ability to actually do well in the game. The only kill they will ever get is the one where they kill their own teammates. I tend to stay on servers with friendly fire off. That definitly avoids them. I would suggest calling a vote, but I don't believe there is any ban once you are kicked. A nice feature to add though, every time you are kicked from a server its a 24 hour ban, 5 kicks in a week and your id number is banned permanently. How effective would it be if these TK's would have to buy a new copy everytime they decide to TK....
Awesome idea Gnaget!!
I want to be like the Admins

I agree with you and the Wolf...good idea. There already is a site that lists banned players and I will get the addy as my post with it was dropped from this forum. Any way to stop the TKer's is good as far as I am concerned. I have noticed that on some servers when the admin is monitoring, alot of peps get kicked for TKing, name calling, offensive language, offensive names...sure makes the game alot more enjoyable.
Hang in there Chalky. I play just about every night and while I do see my share of boneheads there are some really awesome players out there. When you get in a game with them, its hard to say "enough" and go to bed...I played with 20 or so guys last night on the Lion server for over 2 hours and hated to leave at 3am but my wife threatened to pull the plug...
I would like to thank you all for your encouragement and I have had another go only to see the same thing happen again and again, I thought I would change my name to see if that made any difference but alas no, I only tried online gaming because of reading this forum and found it interesting, I have had some good games and must admit it is very addictive, I will take your advice Freshmeat and download the latest map pack,
Once again thanks for your encouragement.
Glad we could help ya man, just watch out, if you are on the other team, I will frag you!! LOL
People say I post too much

ok Gnaget i like ur idea but sometimes ppl that are just learning play and tk on accident and i, for one, complain if i was in a good spot because im pi55ed at them. Also new players might not say sorry which could cause hostility. Also when i was new i remember killin my teammates because i thought everyone looked the same. The idea is good but you will be banning beginners more than arseholes.
Hello Again Last night I played Marketgarden for over two hours and it was the best time I have ever had, the medics and Lt's were giving out pack's like they were going to explode if they did'nt, thanks for the tip Freshmeat, and people were defending and not just rushing the other side, Yes WolfUmbra you probably will frag me as I am new to online gaming I seem to die a lot, but I'm getting better and have nearly perfected the art of sneaking up behind the enemy so take care LOL, I would once again Like to thank you all for encouraging me to have another go my wife say's I'm like an addicted crack whore.
