Well I am pro Blacklist. Though it doesn't have to be posted anylonger because it has served its purpose. However the Blacklist thread should not have been locked at all. Especially because of single players and new comers who, for obvious reasons, have no clue what competitive online players go through on a daily basis. You want a relaxing game? Play single player so u can save and and go back to play later and never have to concern yourself with these issues. We who have our own list and encouraged Howudothat to post one enjoy competitive gameing. We try to discourage new players and casual players from joining our games by giving titles like skilled, no newbies, etc. I have many of my list that I don't allow in games that I host because even as an opponent, if they don't quit i have to play a 4 hour game that was decided in 1. I will play agaist other players like itsmevic in FFA's only because they can wreck any team game with thier disruptive game play. ( And I get to kill him for threating me lol ) There are players who are on my personal list that I would puton a posted list because there are too new or not everyone would agree ect. There are friends that game on sins that, on thier word, I would add disuptive players to my list. People like drunken master, US Navy, John James, and so on. Some clan players could have clan reasons for blacklisting that i mihgt not agree with but I would still look out for who they mentioned. Players like Chaostheory and SlingShot aka ?! should be taken off list by fixing conection problems, or stoping thier crazy behavior in game ect. Other players like itsmavic would have to make amends over time, to alot of players to get off. I have omitted IG from the list because of personal experince with him and chating with him and one of the offended parties in what appears to be an isolated incedent. I also omitted Snoopdaggo because I didn't see any in-game offences.
In no specific order:
Bksabath - Don't speak Enlish or doesn't know how to use chat. In either case, he doesn't know how to play as a team. If you go head to head with him, he plays ok though
chaostheory - Isn't as good as record suggests, and disconnects often
itsmavic - weird behavior, odd tacktics, and won't quit even when the game is clearly over. Will wreck skilled game. Password should be used when he is online. will leave team at any point. Will whisper threats of hacking your computer and "seeing how deep your pocket book goes" etc if you don't let him in your game so he can wreck it
Mysins - won't quit even when there is no chance of winning.
CiniX - won't quit, evenwhen he dosen't have a single ship or planet. Makes you kill every AI planet
1024Jon - super rude noob who will join a skilled game and will not leave just keep geting a slot and thus crashing game before is can be launched. chat spammer, password should be used when this player is online
Charlie Murfy - super rude noob skilled game wrecker. chat spammer, password should be used when player online
SlingShot aka ?! - rude skilled ego nut. will abandon team the second something doesn't go his way. Leaves before game is decided.
Aravik - will not quit when game is clearly over even when his whole team has surrendered.
Like I said there are more on my personal list but don't think they warrent a post.
So for those out there that don't agree, I'm sorry, but this has been on-going and will continue. The list will never die, but will only expand and contract with player activity. My guess is that the list will grow proportional to online attendance.
Thanks again Howdidudothat for taking the first steps to cleanup Sins.
