Is it me or more Rude Players have started to play? Okay i haven't been playing that long i joined in September and in the last 2 weeks more and more rude palyers have join and started to moan and groan and complain. Example this the lag never went over 130 and even went down to 100 he was lagging and everything. It's funny.

Not to say that you were doing anything wrong, but you seem to have had Yahoo! Messenger open, Windows Updates prompting for action (which it would do every so many minutes), Yahoo! Pool open (online game I suppose, possibly with other players with whom you may be chatting), a browser open to Quiksilver56's KOBEREKS DEF 8 Tournament (which displays changing advertisements, has a time indicator changing with each second, and has a chat room), an e-mail program (probably Yahoo! Mail applet) that is checking for messages and alerting you that you have a new message), Yahoo! Chat or some similar program open (one Yahoo! applet in system tray to left of prompt for Java update, one next to Windows Messenger applet icon), and who knows what else as some icons in the system tray are hidden. Also, McAfee security suite could have been downloading updates, scanning files, etc. So, even though the ping may have stayed low as you indicated, it wasn't an optimal environment that you were playing TE2009 in. However, his comments were rude and unjustified.

CC has a quite sharp eye..! :yes:

And when I see this kind of messages in the screenshot above, it makes me wish it'd be easier to create an account system, so this kind of people could be banned... :fear:

Thanks. It seems that after TE2009, the number of players of the TE game increased much, and so with that I guess the incidence of bad behavior, etc., has also increased. At first it seemed to me that it would be simple / feasible to ban players for gross misconduct, etc., but the more that I've thought about it (not that I'm an expert on this issue), the more I understand the difficulty with doing this. You naturally don't want to exclude new players from the game or make it difficult to join the fun, and with there being a free version and it being so easy to fake one's identity (dynamic IP addresses, hacks galore online), I imagine that implementing some control measure such that the benefits outweigh the cons would be a difficult task. This forum is a great complement to the game, because the players get to have a voice (and at least there are bans enforced at the tournament level of online play). The moderators do a great job with that.
