Pinion Pot O' Gold.

So just gonna see if the owner of Pinion sees this since hes posted here before. For some reason Pinion causes extreme amounts of lag to I believe only me. I have no idea why but I disabled MOTD's for a few days it went all find and dandy and then on a few servers I went on I saw messages saying "People who disable motd's will be kicked first for reserved slots" or something along those lines.

Since I play mainly on that community's servers I'd be happy if Pinion could maybe do something about these lag problems.

Even better; servers just shouldn't be able to read the value of the cl_disablehtmlmotd cvar.

I just blocked the Pinion IP in my computer's hosts file. Normally, I don't care about ads-but it was causing my game to crash, so Buh-bye Pinion!

Best thread ever imo.

I had the same problem as the TC. Blocking Pinion solved it though.

Yeah I saw it in some other thread about Pinion but I'm not digging through stuff to find it. And that Ad Blocker works? Or would I just be kicked from servers because first post.

Not specifically but it was about Pinion ads opening up during the middle of gameplay and he said that'd be misuse or something.

Any ad that happens during gameplay, whether it be end of round/middle/beggining, violates the policy.

Unfortunatly, over half of the pinion servers dont follow their own policy.
