unreg players online

Post by dustin » Wed May 16, 2012 2:09 pm

Hey guys,

I've set it so that unregistered players can play in all online games again. To see if we can increase the level of online activity in Vox.

I totally love how those unregs do ruin almost every game they are in because of their lack of experience or lack/will of understanding, or because of being idiots. At least give us a host command/option to keep those out.

Furthermore, I suggest to implement something like a player reliability and experience value that the host can use to restrict access. This value might be calculated from votes of other registered players and kind of be attached to the player's reg code in order to be retrievable by the host when the player enters.

Thanks!!!

(In case anyone cares: Due to massive waste of time I certainly won't join future games until something has been changed.)

OK I changed it so that unregs can only play online using the demo maps, or in fast timer games.

Let me know if you have more opinions on this everyone.

That's good! (What are the demo maps ?)
I'd love to see a better ranking list, is there a way of getting the game data from the sillysoft server to create a ranking? We could make a ranked mode then (e.g. joinable for players with > 1500 ranking points or such).
