Too many sounds

10 posts in this topic

Hi,

Personally, I'm not a fan of all the sounds being played, but got used to it as long as people don't spam it too much. But there is !disablesounds for that so it was fine till recently.

With the new added sound triggers - players joining and mostly kill sounds - it became unbearable IMO. The thing is  !disablesounds doesn't disable those sounds either (at least the killing sound, not sure about player joining).

So this topic is to understand how many are with me thinking !disablesounds should include those.

Cheers

I got so annoyed with seemingly an influx of 14 year olds spamming the same taunts continuously and not playing that I stopped playing Ren all together for many months.  I have been playing for many years before that.  I recently downloaded Ren X for free and have been playing that instead.  Only the basics are used there still, "Follow me!", "I need repairs.", "Enemy spotted!", etc.   The graphics are better, and I don't see people just standing around in buildings...while taunting at each other....and letting their bases die after one building goes down.  Also, on regular Ren, I was getting really sick of people with moderator status, abusing their power.  I was relentlessly trolled by a couple of them after reporting them kicking me out of a game, because I moved one of the vehicles they were "collecting" on a runway, using up our limit as our base was being attacked.   4 of them in this clan them trolled me in the game for days booting me for no reason, and after I was able to report the actual times in which this was happening the trolled the report page where these transcripts were shared by other moderators that scolded them for these actions.  They were then banned.....but then later allowed to rejoin under the same exact names.   I just want to play like in the old days and do some serious teamwork.   I plan to still check in from time to time to see if the dynamics change, as I still love some things about standard Renegade versus Ren X, llke the higher mine limit, and now being able to donate to bring back buildings.  I do think it would be super helpful if we had more serious gamers join in moderating matches.  I really appreciate when they folks do jump in and put an end to the silliness that sometimes distracts from actual gaming.   If I ever have the time and energy myself, or could get paid for it, so I could lessen my other workload, I would be all about it.

Wait, are you saying that the moderating team isn't serious because of an incident that happened 24 months ago? miata was kicked out of the mod team, kicked out of his clan, and banned for quite some time. What I understand is that you're still not over the fact that they were allowed back to play at some point. Btw these four guys don't even play anymore.

You didn't see what transpired behind closed doors but it was pretty brutal. You don't need to believe that it's been dealt with correctly, but I can assure you the current moderation is far from what happened on that fateful day. If that's what keeping you from playing here that is... Otherwise you'll find plenty of good, teamplay filled games around here.

Two years ago miata started acting like a dumbass on a game of Islands by massing and lining up arties to take a picture. He was half mod at the time. Zephryn pointed it out on forums but it got bad, take a look by yourself : http://rencorner.com/index.php?/topic/7821-ostkmiata-kicking-ppl-4-moving-perfectly-aligned-vehicles/

These guys were taken care of appropriately. We don't perma-ban people here unless it's REALLY bad and a repeated offender.
