That...... explains why most public servers have less than 50 days. I thought the server reset itself.

It was due to the vote abusers messing up everyone's progress. Now that Klei changed the vote system, they'll have a much harder time actually resetting things.

wow i may have to pop into a public server now. It would be nice to come back the next day and see how far they have come.

Dang. I was gonna hop on that server myself and check out the progress, but it looks like it already reset. Still, it's nice seeing a Klei official server reach past the first winter.

I celebrated it by going on an official server yesterday and met players who just rushed all the bosses they could, that was quite delightful, and very unusual.

when did this happen? i noticed only today that the Feature was changed so that people can't kick until they survive long enough, but how much time is it now? :(

Btw now we can still get ghost griefers instead of kick griefers.. still in deep manure i would say..

The griefers who seem so mystifyingly obsessed with ruining other players' fun are surely scrambling right now for an alternate tactic. It's probably worth keeping an eye on the most notorious accounts. Was ghost griefing a reason for the kick vote feature being added in the first place? What can be done about it?

There was this guy with his bots that would join the Klei official servers and use the vote kick feature to get rid of everyone (he used his bots to win the vote) then reset worlds. Now that that's fixed worlds could last over the first winter, as shown above.

also, you can vote kick the ghost griefers out.

What are ghost griefers? What do they do? I can only imagine them messing up crockpots. If you mean them being there to drain sanity, well, rez them? Or do they die on purpose to drain it?

Wasn't AFKing something Klei had already dealt with? As in, being away for 5 minutes kicks the player out of the game?

Surely his bots can just vote no to him being kicked? Then on day 20 it's bye-bye to all of you?

Yep. There's an idle timeout disconnect thing on all dedicated servers turned on by default.

No, 20 days is local to players, meaning that him and all of his bots would need to survive for 20 days at least to vote kick. I don't think the guy would go for such an extent just to ruin a server, unless he has no laifu.

They don't need to be alive, right?

Even if they don't have to be alive the requirement to have three bots sitting (even as ghosts) for 20 minutes will likely reduce the ego gratification one gets from being raged at enough to discourage most trolls.

 

Whether it's enough for the troll in question ....  well, it looks like it is since servers are now staying up.

 

But, yeah, I suspect a trio of ghosts could wait out the 20 minute timer.  (assuming the sanity-loss from such a trio didn't kill off everyone anyway -- which it won't if they're vets)

Didn't the "days survived" count always stop when you became a ghost? Sounds weird i know, but i distinctly remember that happening. Could be wrong.
