    It was only afterwards I thought to myself how DODGY that could've looked.
    Jeah, I think that when a 'miracle' happens leaving you with a feeling of "damn, I hope noone saw that" instead of "wow, that was cool!" things are pretty bad...

            sometimes I get the impression that the whole CTG clan is one big 'FBI' organisation and I have to watch my ass for being accused of hacking or cheating when they're around. Seriously, I like all CTG members but somehow I feel like I'm constantly being watched whenever one is on the server.

            I must say we work very hard to keep it clean. That means all of CTG take the time to keep an eye on things in the server and have the means to clean house if they need to.
            I'm fine with that, but get rid of that friggen Gestapo image and stop putting your noses in other people's business. Making sure your server is clean is fine with me, but lets just keep it at that okay? Thievery does not need to be policed, if anything happens the whole thievery community can take care of it, and we don't need a band of lone gunmen to do so.

            This is my final statement, I don't hate or dislike anyone, I just want some people to take this game a little less serious.

                When TuF entered turfwars and 'infiltrated' other guilds, it became their business.

                  Correction, it became every guilds business.

                    Euh, why exactly? Can't the guilds take care of this themselves?

                      True, but Virus somehow only blames LR and Grank for this, although it (should) concern every guild. That's why I put it that way.

                        What if some of the TuF's was a part of the RLF, and you were supposed to play a turfwar match against them, then they would know every detail about your 'plans', wouldn't they?

                          This thread is not only about what happened to Machine, allthough it makes up for a large part of it.

                          This thread is about the fact that I've been reluctant to play with CTG members for fear of being 'investigated'. The only reason I blame Grank and Laughingrat the most is because they are the guild leaders.

                          In general, the whole CTG clan is assigning way too much responsibility too themselves.

                          I hope I've made myself clear this time.

                            I was as involved in this as LR. Why is nobody blaming me here?

                                Okay, a couple of points here:

                                1) About Cheating: Nobody has ever been banned for the 'lucky move' you described. People who get banned for that stuff do it 4 times per game ALL DAY LONG. I've done stuff like that before and didn't worry about it because anybody who watches me also knows I'll blow 500 flares and go whole games without finding a single thief. The only person who has been banned for cheating like you've described had over 40 hours of observation invested in busting him AND the observations were made by 1/2 dozen people in a myriad of games over two weeks.


                                2) I'm unclear as to how LR & Grank were to handle this nonsense. Are you guys upset that they checked people's IPs? Those IPs are the only way to verify people are who they say they are. Just recently a match was fubared in UT because a ringer was brought in.

                                How would you feel if your team was going up against the RLF and you thought Mad_Gerbil was thieving but in reality it was Frantic under an alias? Suddenly Mad_Geril has all the moves and you get your butt owned. How would you feel about that match? Would you congratulate the RLF on it's win or would you be pissed that I let a highly skilled thief outside of the team take the place of a thief who isn't sure how to hold a BJ?


                                3) If you are in Turfwars the RLF will not play your team until ALL players have had their IPs verified. If you are uncomfortable with that arrangement, then do not play in the Turfwars against the RLF.


                                4) I appreciate Virus' viewpoint on things. It's not fun to have a game sullied in this way since we are all here just to have fun. However, the consequences of not being vigilant is a server full of cheats and ragers and matchs being more the result of spies, thrown games, and backstabbing than skill and teamwork.
