    Specifics/Details:

    Commander62890 wrote:Option 1: Code it so that it's impossible to invite opponents to public games
    Issue(s):
    (a): There are some innocent CC players who would be inconvenienced by this addition
    (b): It would not necessarily stop the abusers. In the case of Klobber, he could just make the games private and do the exact same thing


    Option 2: CC admin decides who is to be punished for abusing the system.
    Issue(s): It may put too much power in the hands of the admin, because it is difficult to create a clear set of rules that define what abuse of the invite system is. If a player is found guilty of abuse, the player will be immediately stripped of the privileges that allow him to invite players to the opposing team (even for private games)! This could be either a temporary or permanent ban, but that isn't really the issue with this option; the real problem would be that it is difficult to truly define abuse of the system, and that CC admin might have a little to much power. In my opinion, both Emmdizzle and Klobber would qualify as having abused the system. In the future, players who do what they did should first receive a temporary ban from inviting opponents; If they abuse it just one more time, they are permanently banned from inviting opponents.


    Option 3:
    CC does absolutely nothing. Emmdizzle and Klobber are cleared, as are any future "abusers" of the invite system. Each time, there is public outcry, but in the end, people realize that CC doesn't give a flying f*ck about the general public.
    Issue(s): More than obvious, and I'm not going to take the time to spell them out for you.


    How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
    less abuse of the invite system. I realize this sugg isnt perfect at all. there are glaring fallacies in it. But it's better than what currently goes on, and will help stop devaluation of the ranking system.
    EDIT: as has been previously stated, no rank filter still, just not being allowed to invite the opposing team in public games.

    Commander62890 wrote:These would all be excellent additions to the site. I'm excited! =D>

    I suppose there is only one thing left to ponder: Can the invite system still be abused via private team games?

    If so, I would like to see Andy's second point come to fruition. If it is possible to abuse the private team games, then the only possible solution is intervention by team CC. And I would like to see the punishment be rather harsh. ;)

    All in all, it looks pretty good to me. These additions would stop users like Emm and Klobber dead in their tracks, and if they wish to resort to private games, it's up to team CC to make the decision. There's really no way around that.

    There are certainly cases where another team may actually want to be invited, but usually that is not the case.
    Overall it seems like a plausible solution to the invite system abuse.

    Should NOT be Allowed to Invite people of opposing team.

    Postby jak111 on Fri Aug 20, 2010 8:28 pm

    Concise description:
    • Many people have been witnessed and reported with misuse of invite system. Emmdizzle and KLOBBER are 2 cases that are pretty serious but no rules as of yet. Well I believe we should make some ground rules there... They BOTH make doubles games and invite low ranked players, 1 to each team to their games. (KLOBBER invites cooks to his... >.>) And due to this misuse I think their should be a community voting on whether or not inviting 1 opposing teammates to each team should be illegal or not.

    Specifics/Details:
    • If the new rule passes these should be put in place
      -no inviting members under Private First Class to team doubles and putting them 1 on each team so ACTUAL teams cannot play in PUBLIC games.
      -and no doing such thing repeatedly where you invite 1 person to each team.

      or another option if the rule passes.
      -NO inviting any opposing team members at all in public games.

    How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
    • It would benefit the site GREATLY. There would be less complaints of farming from high ranking players, more chance of more members staying since they are not being farmed by people who believe points is everything. No more complaints by me about how dumb it is that these people get away with farming low levels all the time, and probably about another majority of the community as well...

    there's already a suggestion on this that someone posted this morning. However, this is a bad suggestion.Sure it would stop the abuse but it would also inhibit everyone else that is doing it correctly.

    the best option would be to just punish the two abusers...

    but that can't happen UNLESS there's a rule in place. only way to do so from what I see is see if the mods are willing to let the community vote on it.

    P.S I said public games, if their doing it correctly they could invite them to PRIVATE games or even just have both online and make one and join quickly then they could invite their teammates...

    Also... If the rule goes in place (can be modified by mods a bit to be a bit more accurate...) but if their caught inviting 1 LOW level member to each team... well that should definately be voted on whether it can be a new rule or not...

    they can be punished (not that i would ever condone anything bad ever happening to my klobby wobby) without this weird specific rule that only punishes two people. i'm too bored to look up the various rules they can be punished under, but they could certainly be punished.

    The only time I invite opponents are when I want to invite a cook or cadet so I can get a non team/deadbeats to play and win some easy points.

    Seriously. It only makes sense to NOT be able to invite opponents. If you have a team lined up to play against when you create the game then make it private. But to be able to manipulate your opponent team on a public game should be blocked.

    (Drop the rank part of your sugg. CC will not support any form of rank segregation)

    I didnt expect to agree with this when I looked, but it really makes sense. The only benefit of invites on team games, is for those abusing the system. For the rest, the private game function serves the same purpose.

    Agreed, inviting team mates is useful, inviting opponents is predominantly abusive.

    Why would it be annoying? Clan games get posted, team leader invites his teammates and the opposing team does the same. The only time when this would be an issue is in inner clan games, maybe, but that's what private games are for and I'd personally sacrifice a little bit of convenience to stop the abuse of the invite system.

    I don't think you should limit the invite system just to accomidate for a few players with cheap tactics.

    The thing to do is change the rules so that invite abuse is punishable by a point reset.

    see that's what I mean, inviting opposing teammates in public games should not be allowed

    and don't worry jef jef, that's probably more of an idea than anything that I came up with it keeps getting outta hand ;D

    But ?'s, cadets, and cooks should ALL count as farming considering cadets and cooks are BELOW ?'s...
