Botting again

Post by heinrich5991 »

We have seen players that some of the players that have been banned four weeks ago have botted again. Since we don't really have a way to make sure that they don't do it again, our only way forward seems to be to ban again.

Since the relatively short ban did not seem to help to reinforce that cheating is not wanted on DDNet, we'll move to a longer ban so that those people have less incentive to cheat the leaderboards.

We currently have no plans for unbanning these repeat offenders.

The repeat offenders are no longer welcome on DDNet servers, moderators are encouraged to kick them if they see them with slightly modified names.

What are your thoughts on this?

my suggestion is to move the ranks of the botters to "invalid player" which will be not a real player, just that the points and ranks of the botters are deleted but the innocent teammates will not lose their ranks.
Not ban their names, just make them starting again

it doesn't matter if the botter cheated 1 part or whole map, a rank including a bot-usage should be deleted and that obviously includes the full teamrank..
