[o-t] Imposter (The Torch)

We banned a guy this past week who has said he's going to wear the [o-t] tag in other servers to try and give our clan a bad name. His exact words were:

Maybe I'll see ya around......just look for the [o-t] tag. I am sure I will make your server proud!!!
His known steam ids are STEAM_0:0:3783787 andSTEAM_0:1:2525061. As usual, if you ever have problems with an "[o-t]" member feel free to contact us at our website, chances are it's a guy like this. He's played under the name 'gr illogically", not really sure if that's the same guy from these forums are not. If not, illogically can ignore my message from last week letting him know I wasn't the guy who banned him.

He's already tried to connect to our server with the tag, so it's fairly credible that he's going to be a dick in other servers. Sorry for the inconvience of this kid.

If any of your members that play on any of the [AE] servers want tag protection I can set that up for you.

1- add [o-t] to bad_names.ini .
2- add their steam id with admin flag "a" to admins.cfg.

I appreciate that, I'll ask. This guy has gone completely balistic and even threatened us with physical violence in the message he said he was going to pose as us. Very scary guy.

Thanks,

He was playing as "gr illogically" as in you copy-pasted that, or that was from memory? If it was a C&P then [O-T] isn't the only thing he's impersonating.

He last used the name ".gr illogically" on 2008-07-18 22:16:11 in the [o-t] server. Every name in the drop down (from the link I provided above) is a name he's used.

That is 'The Torch'. He dislikes me for some unknown reason. It was definitely not me.. I've been banned from o-t for almost a year, rofl - http://tracker.thecatacombs.net/?ste...855042&ex_id=1

At any rate, I apologize for anything I did to get banned from your server, you guys are alright.

ps. I normally dont pub as 'illogicality'.. simply beacuse of guys like Torch.. I like, now, playing in peace... guys like torch don't allow me to so I alias.

pss. rofl @ partial for saying 'asshat'. That's my new nickname for this douche at work.. lawl. <3

If tu played any games, ever, he'd probably find banning anyone impersonating a clan member to be a pretty common rule.

But tu does not play games.

But tu does not play games.

in a pub? no. only unless he got into a leauge match maybe.

only real reason to ever ban in any game is cheating. and no im not talking by noob ot admins either. i am talking by people that actually know what they talking about. top tier leauge admins etc...

edit close 2nd might be racism but thats more of a preference though.

While I actually agree with tu!, o-t has very strict server rules to make a game... where... you.... kill other people, clean and family oriented. At the risk of sounding like a prick.. is this an oxymoron? Perhaps. But, it's their server, their rules - they can do what they want. Not my place to argue.

Ah, well, the rules are completely explained in the [o-t] FAQ on language.

Answers to your specific question:

Why do you filter language in a violent video game?

If you have any additional questions about that being an oxymoron afterwards feel free to post them, we love adding information to the FAQ to resolve questions about the policy. The more questions that aren't already answered the better. In truth we do not ask people not to swear while playing the game, we just ask they do not transmit it over our server.

I'm probably going off-topic and I apologize for that, but the curiosity is too big: why "jesus" is a filtered word in the [o-t] servers? (And IIRC, "god" is too?). I've been slayed due to typing "jesus" after getting killed by a mass of SGs in aardvark, and people looked as surprised as me for that slay, which doesn't seem to break any rule explained in the FAQ (or I overlooked it). In that situation, "jesus" was used in place of "omg, there's a SG fortress here!", which I don't think it breaks any rule either.

Thanks and sorry again for the off-topicness. I would have asked in a PM but pretty much everyone on the server was like "wtf" after knowing the status of the word, so I guess it's better as a forum post.
