The mods are banning people, for life none the less, when this game is in dire need of online players.
The player "Sins 101" "Ignorethisbitch" or whatever his name is, had some lulz with some people on ICO. Those same people come and bitch here in the forums and he gets the hammer!. I mean, why don't you all whiners grow a pair and suck it up or, at least use the damm /ignore command. Its not that hard.
He's been banned. His account was removed and his IP tracked. We'll permanently block it when we reset the server for the next patch. If anyone else does this, please report to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll ban them as well.
We also added some other surprises for them that I'm sure they won't find so funny.
It seems that he could not even appeal.
As if that was not outrageous enough we are talking about a game that after a year of its release is buggy to say the least. How many games did he ruin 2, 3, 5 or 6 may be?. What about all of HIS ONLINE GAMES ruined by minidumps, sync problems, bugs, disconnects, random ICO downtime? What about the ones he DIDN'T EVEN GET TO PLAY due to a large portion of players inability to host?.
What about his ruined games?
Who should we ban?
What about the $30-$49 he paid for his game key?
A week or two ban period would be punishment enough, but...
"His account was removed and his IP tracked. We'll pertmanently block it when we reset the server for the next patch..."
What really pisses me off is the fact that online play would be a lot more enjoyable if Stardock allocated more resources to actually fix the game. Online play is not going to be fixed by banning the random troll.
I'm asking Stardock to please lift his ban or at least make it less severe. After all, he paid money for his game.
