Considering shutting down master server...

Well, today I've seen the biggest display of immaturity I've ever seen. People running around, connecting to servers as soon as they saw someone else connect, crashing other clients, banning them, etc.

If this is what it has come to, we'll just shut down the master server. People only seem to want to abuse the service we're graciously providing for free, and fuck it up for everyone else.

If that's the case, if that's what some of you guys really want, fine, we'll just shut down the service since it's basically unusable to anyone as is.

Hi everyone. I\\\'m a regular player of sauerbraten because I like it\\\'s style of gameplay. I don\\\'t edit (I do gawk at others edit creations, though) and I most certaintly do not / can not make any cheat mods. some of you may recognize me from games as bonghit.

I too have been dismayed at the level of cheating. Recently I noticed there are less servers online than what I had remembered. Curious, I investigated and my search led me to this board. As I understand, the main server is shut down. Are there other servers out there I could try and play? How do I dial up another server within sauerbraten?

I apologize is my message is noobish, despite playing the game for a long time now, I never immersed myself in the technical side of it.

Thank you,
Player just wanting a fair game

This is really annoying that the master server is offline. This is not the 1990s. I'd like to be able to play with other people, whether or not cheaters come. Let there be an option in the game not to contact the mster server, and let those who wish to use the lack of a master as protection against cheaters do so, but let the rest of us use the master server.

Why would eihrul censor his own post?

Why shut down the master server? It makes the game not very much fun at all. Coopedit is especially fun on multiplayer. I had a bunch of friends from facepunch that played considerately on coopedit together. I have lost hope in this game.

Shutting down the master server doesn't stop multiplayer, it just stops you from finding new servers. You should still be able to see servers you have been to, if they're not dynamic ips. If you want to find new servers with people join the #sauerlobby channel on quakenet.

Hackers create things. Crackers and noobs breake them.

some of us actual enjoy playing on the master server, especially coop editing. you guys should just make a good banning system or something so none of the game ruiners can cause any problems.

"So, short of Aard not liking it, or serious export restriction problems on this, or my code just being really really buggy, we'll have [im-not-posting-what-it-was-because-this-post-will-get-censored] to work with for certain."

i think it was aard that censored it.

i thought a hacker was someone who played with code, [can include making cheat hacks]...

anyway... shutting down the masterserver changes nothing, only makes it more difficult to get to a server. this is making us suffer and isn't stopping the cheaters, i am really losing hope in this....

I understand that the developers shut down the master server because they felt it was being abused by individuals who modified and rebuilt their code, their actions were completely justifiable in that sense. However, is it not true that the number of people who legitimately used the master server outweigh the number of cheaters? There will never be a multiplayer game that is free of cheating, even commercial games such as CounterStrike and Call of Duty see that. Those companies still release their games though, don't they? It should be the developers goal to implement a feature that combats cheating, and while stopping EVERYONE from playing may accomplish that, surely you can agree that it's not the most practical solution? I hope the master server comes back up soon.
