DU4 Punishing Good Players

Fri Jan 01, 2016 1:04 pm

To be fair, most of the DU4 admins I have seen on their servers seemed like normal, decent, even-tempered people.
I was especially impressed with an admin named ForAssistant (sorry if I messed up the name spelling).
However, there is one particularly bad admin who seems determined to throw his weight around.
I won't name him here, but I suspect that the other admins may know who it is.

Is it the official policy of DU4 to remove the top scoring player from the winning team and repeatedly force him on to the losing team?
If it is the official policy then you might want to include that information in the server rules.
But be prepared for DU4 to be laughed at for having a policy that effectively punishes anybody who plays well.
On the other hand, if this admin is acting badly on his own then he needs to be reined in.

BC2 is a competitive shooter and not a social welfare program: sometimes you win and sometimes you lose.
BC2 composes teams completely at random and nobody with any integrity could possibly argue that there is anything unfair in that.
Of course I realize that servers are free to be run however the host chooses.
However, this kind of obnoxious meddling doesn't just give DU4 a bad reputation.
It will make serious players sneer at the Nexus servers in general.

Better complain on their forums:

Although DU4 is being used as a concrete example, this thread is a general observation about bad server admin practices and not just about DU4 alone.
Posting a "complaint" thread in the DU4 forum would have no practical benefit in that regard since it would undoubtedly be buried.

As I said in my initial post, I am well aware that server hosts are free to run their servers however they choose.
The intention is not to change DU4 but rather to draw attention to the negative effect that bad practices have on the reputation of Nexus servers in general.
There is literally only one full Rome conquest server most of the time and having an obnoxious admin who abuses decent players on that server is idiotic.

If you got questions regarding our server rules, feel very free to read for yourself: ... ver-Rules/

In case you don't have an account and to answer your specific question:

Any topics regarding DU4 should be discussed in our board rather than here.
