Atkvin Posted November 18, 2022 Share Posted November 18, 2022 Hi, this was something that I ran into last night and just rubbed me the wrong way. There were 3 players sitting in two different Singapore public servers hosted by Klei, endlessly resetting the world and abusing votekick to kick anyone else trying to join. Here I actually managed to login quickly enough to catch a chatlog before being kicked again - they are talking about resetting the world in the chat, explaining why both servers are always on day 1 as a result, and dispelling the assumption someone just put bots on the server. My friend suggested they're probably refreshing the world repeatedly to find an optimal worldgen seed. I'm very much aware public servers are free reign and it's foolish to ask Klei to monitor griefers in normal play. But.. this is just another level of ridiculously trollish/inconsiderate action. Why the heck are they squatting up not just one, but TWO *PUBLIC* servers to do that?? Just for good ping? Why wouldn't you do that on your own private servers, rather than gatekeep others that want to play on local servers with good ping and with randoms? It's so baffling and frustrating! I just hope something can be done about this. I was able to play on a European pub server after (and got some unfair hits by pigmen and spiders with the ping) - but that players are abusing public server systems to do this (and hardly actually playing the game) is just really upsetting. Absolutely nothing seems to be stopping them from squatting in those servers as long as they want. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
