Kick Votes

Your team members harassing you can be a problem. I quote from the forums:

"A kick feature that someone can use that requires majority rule or higher, or possibly only commanders can do it. THe reason I ask is because earlier today there was one person who just continuously EMPd people. But they were on his team. He didn't make any effort to win, only EMPd people on his team then MPRd them to enemies, then suicide to get more grenades.

Just wondering if you guys are planning on a kick feature of some sort, and what restrictions would be on it. " (GrammarNazi)

It would be great if a system could be implemented that would allow to remove such griefers from the server. In my opinion Left4Dead's Kick Vote system does that very well. A similar system should be implemented for SH.

One possible solution would be a "vote kick" button on the scoreboard next to each player's name. If a certain percentage of the player's team (e.g. 67%) press that button the player gets booted. That is less obstrusive and prone to abuse than a popup voting dialog.

I dont like this idea, people start kicking people out just to play with each other, they don't like newcomer being so good at this game.

There is admin for server who can kick people out and server can be password protected.

This is pretty useless idea.

It is highly unlikely that someone who didn't do anything wrong gets kicked on a server with 10+ players. To prevent that from happening you set the kick threshold sufficiently high (60%+).

I saw a lot of l4d server where i joined, they kicked me out and i have done nothing and the reason is that they only want to play together.
So password for server is to play parties, no need to votestuff what can be used bad.

You forget that L4D has only 4 players per team. Naturally many teams of 4 play it together. If one of those has a disconnect, of course the three others kick the random player who joins to make room for their returning buddy. I did that too with my friends.

This situation does not apply to SH.

but there are too little players gaming, so if people are started to kick out, it will discourage people to join again on that server, it should be admin who kicks people out, not players.

And this could be a lot of work to FM to make this happen, but vote whoever likes this, i dont.

That is a good idea ! This could prevent some players to spoil the game of others players. But I dont think it should only be used by the commanders because it is just a rank and even a guy that plays wrong can reach it.

Majority votes are usually made with the best interests of the server in mind, this could be used quite well. Even if someones not doing anything wrong and are just playing well - Amped :P - that too can kill a server quickly so in that case a vote against the disrupting player is still justified imo.
