I have made numerous threads regarding teaming in pvp games (epecially SSM) and the issues that have risen as a result in inconsistent moderation by modmen. Clearly, staff does not listen, nor do they make enough effort to fix this inconsistency, which is why this server is going down in player count. Before I continue, I just want to say please DO NOT REPLY to this thread if you are going to comment anything useless, try to argue that this isn't an issue, or reiterate anything that has been spoken about in the past that everyone already knows. Believe me, I've been on about this topic for a very long time and already have a decent amount knowledge about the consequences of teaming. The situation today involved my friend and I, and two other friends that often team in SSM. I hardly play on alts, but today I was on one, and I learned that similar names, skins, or just being in a party will put you at higher risk of punishment. I let my friend 1v1 another player as I stood to the side because I did not want to interrupt their fight. Next thing you know, my friend and I are warned for teaming. How many times do we need to go over this? We've talked about this so so many times on forums already. BY DEFINITION, letting someone 1v1 is NOT TEAMING. If a player FEELS as if they are being teamed on because one person is doing absolutely nothing on the side, then any bystander can assume that this person is also teaming. Allowing a 1v1 is certainly not an appropriate situation to hand out warnings/ban. I just thought I'd repeat this for the hundredth time so that all the irresponsible modmen can see. Some modmen never fail to disappoint me. At this point, I'm convinced that half the staff members that spectate games to deal with reports don't even watch what's going on, but instead trusts that the person who made a report is always correct. In my case, I was with legitimate teamers yet my friend and I got the warning, simply because they were able to write a report before we were. It's like a race of children tattletaling each other, and whoever complains first doesn't get in trouble. Forum reports go through so much review before any action is taken, so why isn't it the same on the server? So many teaming reports with video evidence are denied because they are considered insufficient evidence, yet a modman can just warn and ban players on the server without watching the game? It doesn't make sense. Every modman should know that teaming literally means two players targetting another player without fighting one another. You know who you are, and you are not only disappointing me, but the entire community. Staff is one of the biggest issues on this server, and whoever disagrees is simply in denial. This is not a one time occurrence. I'm wasting my time on this thread and repeating a lot of stuff I've already discussed before because modmen never learn or listen and are too stubborn to accept the fact that change might be a good thing. If you are interested in past discussions about teaming, feel free to check my other threads.
