Well as most of you know me, I get very annoyed at the little kiddie trash that come to our one and only server who do nothing but nade spam and use rockets to excess. I have noticed over the past few weeks, we have been getting more and more people on our server who I have never seen before, that is fine, new players are always welcome, but when they come in they reach for the junior no0b tube (shottie) and the no0d tube (rockets) and continue to use them dispite many many warnings from other players not to use them until they leave.
I was in the server lastnight for 5 minutes before I got totally Pi**ed off with the situation, I died 19 times and was shot once and that was by a shottie.
Perhaps we can get a mod (if there is one) to get rid of the rockets and minimise nades or even a mod that actually bans ppl (not permanent, just 1/2 hour or so) rather than kick them.
Or perhaps like landers suggested (in jest) perhaps a mod that restricts age.
It is really getting pathetic, and lets face it, there is NO map on SH that requires the use of rockets, but yes, sometimes you need a nade, but I think just limit the nades to one or two.
Now also I know that ppl say they produce the rockets because they are spawn killed, personally I think that is cr*p, it just an excuse to produce the no0b tubes.
Oh no doubt the Rocketeers and Nade Spammers no0bies will disagree
We've the same problem on the MOHAA servers. However there is no way banning/kicking someone automatically for using a rocket, even if it is really annoying, is possible due to the fact that it's a public server and banning on the basis of weapon choice is not a good pathe to go down.
A weapons mod could help stem the increase, I will investigate on how hard it is this weekend.

Well, I was playing, or at least trying to Saturday night on the map, Brest as an Allied.
Axis had spawn campers in the end building, 2 in the upstairs room windows and one in the downstairs window.
Then the nades kept getting lobbed in from the other only exit from the Allied spawn area.
The only way to even try to get into the game was to use the rocket.
Of course, as soon as I used the rocket all sorts of abuse started.
I do not use the rocket normally but if spawn camping of that calibre happens again, I will use the rocket.
Players have got to treat it as a game and not just to win by any means, it is supposed to be fun for all.
I am aware that if the Allies dominate in Brest, they do the same thing to Axis.
I have typed a message in many times to fallback and let the opposing team spawn so we can make a game of it but kills are more important than game fun, so it seems.
Another map that causes a lot of this type of play is Stadt where the Allies spawn in the church and I do not have a problem if they use the rocket if I am on Axis.
I use a the german pop gun which I think you may call it a nad tube or something..
It is no where near in the same class as the rocket.
The pop gun takes a while to perfect unlike the rocket.
If you can't handle a pop gun then you need more practice.
You get 3 shots and takes a while to reload.Very vunerable target in all aspects.
I am close to perfecting it and people just get **** because I kill then from a great distance due to my guess of the distance of my weapon.Which I said I have almost perfected.
Rockets I can understand your arguement but not the pop gun.
If you have a problem with that still then you may not get on with many of the clans in spearhead as most are with the Anzac Alliance group which is run by a selected few such as my self.
Like the rocket the nade launcher needs to be used properly. No one really gets that anoyed if you pull off a great long distance shot with it, if someone fires a rocket @ me from like half a map away, and gets me, then it was a good shot...
Same with the nade launcher, if you can get an accurate shot from quite a distance, then its a good shot. What **** most people off are the knobs who run around hallways and corridoors with the grenade attatched, and just blow themselves up, or almost kill themselves while killing you.
Its that type of crap that gets on poeples nerves, whether or not its you doing it doesn't matter to them, they just died from a n00b weapon and thats all they care about...
also remember that some ppl who cant get cable can only use the big stuff if a ther server is near full, should they miss out just because they cant access the faster pings? (get ready for dial up vs war on replys)
what i do not understand is your whinging with shotguns.
maybe you should stop going into enclosed corridors and similar areas, because the shotgun has a huuuge disadvantage; range. i don't see why people complain about the shotgun...it's just like a rifle, except riffles have longer range, and shotguns don't as much aiming skills at close range, but you could probably still hit someone at close range with a rifle.
if there is some guy with a shotgun, just get him from a distance, duh.
Well no **** from a distance, but it seems you forget that the realism is rearly turned off and the shotties go far more further and are more powerful....and besides whinging...settle pettle...Shotties was just an example...you should know me acky...its rockets that I am anti on.
BTW good point Sam, and understandable Shadow.
