    People abusing the votekick option on the arena server


    Hi guys! This is my first post here

    Anyways I am kind of disappointed, I finally found an Arena server somewhat close to me that gives me decent ping, well I just got temporarily banned as well as some other guy because some random guy started a votekick and said I was lagging! 80% agreed!

    The worst part is I had 58Ping and the guy who started the votekick only did it because I was questioning his reason for getting a guy before me votekicked, he claimed the guy was aimbotting but he was a soldier and looked clean to me. Anyways how do I get back on, or how long does the kick last??

    Edit: ehh looks like the kick is expired now! Still I am kind of disappointed that so many people are getting kicked for no reason.

    Sadly votekick abuse runs rampant on the arena server. I think the temp ban only lasts a few minutes, but I'm not sure...

    Temp ban lasts five minutes. Best way to deal with it is to report the votekick abusers:

    Edit: I just permabanned Gojira because he was still abusing it when I went to check it out. Response was favorable.

    I had to ban a couple of people today for this same thing. I think they think they can do whatever and run the game their way with a select group of people on there who continue to support the votekickers and if people don't like it and just want to play the game regularly, then they think it gives them the right to votekick (they even votekicked me earlier today).

    I should have permabanned instead of temp banned, but I hope my warning to the others did something to stop them from continuing this.

    Yea, I've been frequenting the Arena server lately and have noticed an increase in votekick abusers. I've seen who you've banned LMA, but I don't think those are the real troublemakers. The annoying part is, its a whole bunch of them and they all support each other.
