Ok, i'm not sure who =eGo= is, bet every time i join a server that has =eg= or =eGO= in it i always end up getting kicked. All the admins are ♥♥♥♥ heads. I don't even say anything i just go about my business.

Anyone else play in these servers? I'v run across these servers in TF2 also. Sometimes i can be playing in the server for a good hour shooting the ♥♥♥♥ with my friends. Then some turd with =eGO= comes in and kick's me. ♥♥♥♥ing ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s. Anyone else have this experience?

eGo is great, if they're kicking you it's for breaking one of their rules, like swearing or inappropriate names. probably not for hacking or because they have fun kicking you.

eGO does have abusive admins and brain dead advisors, stay away from them.

No warnings? I was playing on one today and called the United States Army a bunch of murderous ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ and didn't get kicked but only warned.

i've never seen an eGo admin ban someone for no reason before...dunno where you guys play. sure swearing and being inappropriate might be a stupid, petty, rule, but it's easy to follow. probably their best rule is automatically banning anyone who accuses someone of hacking, as opposed to the corallary used in most other pubs, automatically ban anyone that kills you

i still find it hard to believe you were doing nothing to break their rules. to double check yourself, here's a short list:

no swearing or racism, don't hit on girls that are probably half your age, no sprays, names, nor avatars with swear words, racism, pornography, website urls, advertisements, or politics., no cheating, scripting, barrier jumping, exploits, griefing. no spawn camping. no f10 or alt-f4 jokes. no advertising/recruiting. no impersonating an eGo admin, no arguing with the admins in the server, don't bother the admins repeatedly for kicks or bans.

it's very likely you did something prohibited by one of these rules. what's your avatar? what's your pub alias? what's your spray? were you pissed off that someone was hacking and asking an admin repeatedly to ban him?

even after you figure out what you did, it probably won't make a difference, after you rejoined and called them names, but i'm not in eGo so i can't really speak for them, try posting on their forums

eGO admins are a joke.. They perm banned me for racism when I said "lets have a mexican freeday" on the css jail server. Mexican isn't a race, I didn't say anything negative about mexicans, nor did i compare them to something.

Funny how the guy who said "lets have a USA freeday" didn't get banned.

the admin may have misunderstood what you said as a derogatory statement and it's more than likely that protesting the ban on their forums, maturely (ie: not by saying "you guys are ♥♥♥♥, unban me") would have resulted in the ban being removed. trust me. i'm banned from enough servers that i have several half-page long protests saved to expediate the process. for an example:

Hello. I was playing on your <Server> server and was banned by <admin> for aimbot. Given the professionalism displayed in your forums and servers, I'm inclined to believe that you are fully capable of running them efficiently and justly. With that in mind, I would like to point out that the only ways to truly recognize the use of any hack would be through the use of a server and/or client side Anti-Cheat client, and being as this is a public server, that is a nearly impossible standard to conform to. Due to this fact, spectating and viewing a demo is the only tool you have to determine the use of hacks or exploits. I do not believe that your admin has a demo of myself that alludes to my use of aimbot, as I do not use it. To further challenge this accusation, I have played DoD:S competitively for approximately <years> years with no bans nor accusations on record as can be confirmed by searching my steam ID on www.legit-proof.com. I am currently working and playing for Hausen eSports, a multi-gaming organizations sponsored by Jarhead Gameservers, Nationvoice, and several others. As a means to be taken seriously in the e-Sports community, as a future limited liability company, members of Hausen eSports are subject to frequent observation to ensure clean gameplay and adherence to terms in the agreement currently being drafted to constitute a legally binding contract between a party and Hausen eSports; the breaching of aforementioned terms resulting in the immediate removal from Hausen eSports and termination of agreement without necessity of advance notice. Furthermore, I am more than willing to provide demos from any and all league matches in my possesion to assist in my exoneration from any accusations of cheating previously leveled. Regardless of your decision, we at Hausen eSports wish <Organization> success in any and all future endeavors.

that usually results in my ban being removed, until the next time they decide that i'm cheating, in which case i have other similar protests prewritten (once you get to the point that your blacklist is longer than your unfiltered internet server list, it just becomes more convenient to generalize these things and save them). all it takes is a little time and maturity, and you can get unbanned up to 3 times (my personal record) before they stop listening to you and decide you and your whole organization is a bunch of cheaters and keep you banned anyway, and once you get to that point, any professionalism displayed by that pub clan (if any at all) deteriorates to posts like "LOL yeah right cheater-♥♥♥, go play somewhere else" at which point it's not worth responding. Every pub community, whether they're a realism clan or a casual pub clan, will eventually respond with this, some take longer than others, but they all end up like this because let's face it - if they think you're cheating, they can't be too intelligent and prolonged maturity weighs heavily on the minds of those types of people. however if you yourself can be mature and take the time to post on their forums, you can probably enjoy the game long enough for another price drop to buy another steam ID to avoid the ban

They said "no sprays"...maybe you used yours and they kicked you for that. Otherwise, i honestly don't know. I've rarely played on =eGo= servers due to my ping being quite high in there (i'm from italy, so it often goes over 100-150 and even more) but they seemed kind guys for what i've seen.

They don't have control of VAC, they just ban people from THEIR servers. Which is perfectly legal, they own the server, they do what they want with it. It isn't possible to exploit a server to VAC ban someone.

07-29-2010, 06:36 PM
i was gonna reply to usbfridge's accusation of me aimbotting, but that was before i read his comment about vac, which renders it unnecessary to defend myself, for obvious reasons

also i am not in eGo, so no, i did not ban him from their server.

and for the record, i also have ones for wall hacks, no recoil hacks, custom models that glow (don't ask), and several for hacks that don't actually exist except in the minds of pubbers. then i have a few that are for when i get banned a second time, after the first time was appealed, then i have another one for when i get banned the third time. usually after the third time you just stay banned, so that's where i stopped. but obviously they all have to be worded differently to fit each hack you get accused of using, that's why you have to have more than 1 response. but really they only took about 5 minutes to write a piece, and if i use them twice a week, i make up for the lost time easy

I've seen people VAC banned because of them, and many where close freinds. They send personal messages, like:
Hello, Mother***ker, I see you don't like eGo... That's to bad for you. You're gonna need ALOT of help talking your way out of this jam, so why don't you join us and discuss and agreement, and I'll lift this VAC ban, free of charge.

Ya you're close friends are liars. It isn't possible to be vac banned from playing on a specific server. And VAC bans are almost always correct, false positives rarely happen and when they do they happen to more than a few "close friends" and Valve fixes the issue quickly (MW2 anyone? FREE l4d2). They are lying, as simple as that, it's not possible. Under any circumstances, it's not possible, at all.

They probably banned your IP. I play on EGO servers on CSS (not the best servers, I know) and they're okay on those servers. I am not sure what's the case on other games that the clan has servers on.

I would advise you to ask what are the rules on a server whenever you go to a new server to play on, and if there isn't any, then just don't act like a ♥♥♥♥.

I think on most EGO servers, the admin are advised to either kick or ban people who are swearing a lot, spray inappropriate sprays, accusing people of botting without proof (gotta be careful there), and racism isn't tolerated. So yeah, its pretty strict on the rules, but if you act mature, you'll have a good time.

Someone else tried to list them - hopefully this is a little easier to read:
EGO Server and Forum Code of Conduct
(Public Rules)

1. No foul, degrading, or racist remarks.
2. No inappropriate or disrespectful sprays or names.
* All sprays and avatar icons used on eGO servers should be PG-13 rated. No nudity is allowed. Final decisions on what is acceptable are left up to the admins in the server.
3. No cheating, cheat scripts, barrier jumping, map exploits or hacks of any kind.
4. No griefing.
5. No F10 or Alt-F4 jokes.
6. No advertising in servers.
7. No names or sprays that advocate or oppose a political figure, political stance, religion or nation.
8. No website URLs in names, sprays or avatars.
9. No impersonating admins.
10. No arguing with admins.
11. Do not disrupt the server in any way.
12. Do not pester admins.
13. Admins have final say in server.


Looks like a lot, and it is.

But the reality is, if an admin has an issue with you breaking a rule, you are politely reminded and requested to stop.
If you ignore the request, you are kicked. Usually that is just because someone forgot.
If they persist, then you enter Ban territory.

Any abusive action by admins is swiftly dealt with by Division and Clan leadership. Take note of the server the abuse happened on, the time of day, and any names of admins on at the time.
Then head on over to edgegamers.org and post something in the section to contest a ban, or notify us of another problem with an admin.

Having been in, and run, several other clans, I can tell you that eGO admins are well-trained and held to WAY higher standards of behavior and rules-compliance. When I ran the BuxomBombshells, I would ban - easily - 5 people a night. Since I've been in eGO I don't think I've banned 5 people in 2 years' time. I need to be able to answer for everything I do administratively in eGO.

Now, if your intent is to come on the servers and raise hell, create a hassle for everyone and generally be a nuisance - then I redirect you to the rules above.
If you mess up and get banned, but want to come back - by all means, post in the eGO forums and believe it or not, you'll probably be back on, playing with hundreds of other great players within hours.

I understand a good game. And I am also a musician, which pretty much means that I swear constantly... But, rules are rules, and I do the best I can to follow them. Note that an accidental slip where you use a 4-letter word in frustration is vastly different than using one as an attack on someone.
Further, if you enjoy using racist or sexist comments (f*g, n**ger, c*nt, you know the gamut from having played games online) then luckily for us all, there is simply no place for you on eGO servers and no, you don't get 2 chances...

Are you the world's most awesome player and get accused of cheating everywhere you play?
Well I think you'll be pleasantly surprised to find that false accusations and suspicions are absolutely not tolerated on eGO servers. If someone's got demos as proof, by all means, step forward. But admins and pubs alike are absolutely not permitted to hassle players just because they got a lucky shot.

Check out our site and view the events page.
Hope to frag with many of you soon. I can be found in TF2 for the most part, and DoD:S as well.

Lots of discussion but its sliding into name calling.
Bottom line is that servers have the right to determine their own policies.
If you disagree with them find another server or create your own.
That's life
