Identify the bad players and just ban them from official servers for being Toxic

Official NA#4 is broken.

Anyone trying to spawn or walk on earth, is just stuck. rubberbanded. -whatever. The entire world.

2 players claimed responsibility for purposely doing it. They were upset about rocket pods being 800PCU or something.

So they just broke it all. So, NA#4 is an excellent Bug report world file as-is to review, so props to them for successfully breaking the world... but boo for their reasons and intent to other players in doing so.

I play on NA#4 and I also heard about an attack on earth that cause the rubberbanding yesterday. And I confirm 100% that I could barely move in my asteroid base due to this while I was playing last night. Please find who is doing this and give them a swift ban hammer.

Eh... slippery slope people should just not go down. There are even "Gaming journalists" and "Analyzers" (aka the people who keep track of who buys what games and how the games are used) that are pushing for "Game developers to fire parts of the community from being able to use their product because of their toxicity". How were they being toxic you might ask? Their specific examples were about the community complaining about Mass Effect Andromida because the devs were pushing a broken and almost unplayable game out at full price then blamed the players for the game not working, people complaining about the next Last of Us's game trailer flaunting the lesbian make out scene for the trailer instead of showcasing gameplay or story, people complaining about historical inaccuracies of Battlefield V, and people complaining about EA's scummy business practices. And this was all while they were praising Rainbow Six Siege's practice of unjustly banning large swaths of people for no valid reason (especially Spanish speaking people who said the word "black" in their native tongue).


Now, the people who broke the world may truly deserve some form of punishment. But just banning people "for being toxic" is not only scummy, but in ways even worse than the original person being toxic.

Just for the record, I was mainly joking in my post. There are a lot of verbal jabs and antics that go on 4's chat and we're all just playing around for the most part. It's really not that serious. 4 is a world where a lot of staged earth attacks happen and various toxicity occurs from time to time. I'm mainly wondering how they broke it to be honest.

Does anyone know exactly what they did. I don't care who it was, just how they did it and how it could be fixed.

On a positive note, this gives admins the opportunity to play with safe zones and make jails to put the perpetrators in. Non-destructible blocks in a safe zone. Think about it Keen. 👍

The game is already too safe, 90%+ of the servers out there have no PVP action.

Just for the record again, I'm not saying that keen should jail people who engage in warfare in a video game. I'm saying people who put down an entire server should be jailed. I had a nice pvp ship and asteroid base setup on that world, and I was planning on enjoying fights all that week but I can't now and I'm blimpin pissed.

And if anybody else is doubting me or think i'm crying or being weak, I have since moved on to another server, speccy gandalfs.

But this shit is childish. All of yall need to imprint in your mind the classic phrase, "This is why we can't have nice things"

sorry for the triple post but I have another constructive idea.

For however long you put a server down, you get a jail sentence that's three times the length of the server's downtime

Please report this behavior to server admins, they will fix the problem asap.
