Nothing right now. And I can't think of a foolproof way to stop it.
You may notice on your profile you can now add your "grid name", populate this and these forums will pick up your ladder score from both ctwf and flower sumo.
You may also notice when you enter either of these servers it will either say to you something like:
Code:
"Thanks for registering at crazy-tronners forums"

or
Code:
"Please register at crazy-tronners forums"

depending upon whether or not the ip address used to enter the server matches an the last ip address used to browse these forums.

But there is no method there to enforce a single name. What about brothers or sisters who play from the name network, hence ip. What about those who connect to the forums via a http proxy, yet directly connect to arma via another router?
It all falls down.

One method which may be in the long and distant pipeline is player login:
A player enters the server, is automatically placed in spectator mode. Try as he may he is unable to join a team until he is logged in.
To do this he types in:
Code:
/login ct-eddie supersecret

where ct-eddie is the players gridname (as specified in the profile, displayed over there <--) and supersecret is his ct forum password.
Then his name (if it isn't already) will be changed to ct-eddie and he joins a team.
True, you can change your gridname in your profile, but the ladders will be based on forum name, not gridname.

Problems:
1. Register again on the forums under a new name, create a new gridname/pass, etc. <-- this could be policed, if there was a dave and davep at the top of the ladder, we could easily see what was going on and delete one. Not totally fool proof.
2. Do we really want to go this route anyway? Will people be bothered? It might just kill ctwf overnight. Certainly new players will probably just go elsewhere where they don't need to register on forums to play.

On the plus side it will be a lot easier to control the banning of players.

Any suggestions/thoughts welcome on this.

Since there is a fake "Luzifer" around now (though, I haven't seen him yet), I think it is a good idea Wink

It would therefore make the ladder more accurate and add another unique feature to the server.

ed> first i was only talking about the top 10 players.

of course there is always a way round it, like people who change their name when they are losing, if there is a login they simply wont log in if they think the team skill balance is against them.

you could always have 2 sets of stats, one for people who have logged in and one for the ones that havent?



and who is davep?

They wont be able to change their names. If they don't login, they wont be able to play.

I thought about that, I just think so few people would bother, it would be a pointless ladder.
Maybe have the ability to protect your gridname. hmmm.

Terrible idea.

that ladder should be the only one viewable on the server, that way if someone wants to get on it they have to log in.

protecting the gridname doesnt stop all the "owned" "Woned" "Nodew" "denwO" mallarky.

Dave Parker. Just some guy I work with.

hmmm and is he really good enough to go top of the ladder ?

Why do you guys really care. If you have the patience/time to keep playing 100 rounds then you deserve to be at the top of the ladder. When I do a search for my name, it shows up that CTxDurka has played 0 rounds, that's it....so not even my imposter can play 100 rounds.

rofl owned that's such bs.


you said to me "Infa i'm gonna beat your score on ctwf" and the next day you were top with "woned" which isnt even a word.

spot i dont want any scores deleted... tbh it was a lot more about owned's score than yours.

my actual point is, what stops me (or a good player) from playing for 100 rounds and changing their name, and doing it again and again... so they eventually get a score on top ?


infam, I've only made two names, and the only reason I use woned now is because (as I told you before) that is my new name. I almost always play under woned now. The only time I switch is when I'm not trying hard.

I told you "I'm gonna beat your score," because I was building up rounds under CtxWoned, and when I had like 80 total rounds, I realized I had an average of about 50 points. That's why I said I would get ahead of you because I realized that when I finished 100 rounds, I would probably be ahead of your score.

One last point.
Infamous, usually I, and most others, do better in their first 100 or so rounds. This is evident as in my first about 150 rounds when I switched from |ctt||owned to CTxOwned, I was 2nd on the ladder.

Anyways, why does it matter so much? You know that you are one of the best players in tron and I accept that.

CTxPowned> its not about being "one of the best" in eyes of others, it's about being top in ctwf for me! Wink I dont even care about the flower power ladder, top 10 is fine for that for me.
