Hi, I have been playing NS since 1.04 and truly it is a great game. I'm posting this topic because some servers are downright ridiculous to play on because of their o so strict rules. Let me choose an example:
Omitted. - This server will ban you if you spam medpacks or try to retry because you have been devoured. Lame tactics yes, but a PERMANENT ban for that? Shouldn't permabans be for hacks?
Omitted. - This server will ban you for a week if you rambo as a marine. If you so much as lay a sensory chamber down, you will be permabanned.
Now I know most regulars like to fool around sometimes, after all, we play this for FUN, winning the game is just a bonus. Sometimes newbies won't know what they are doing and BOOM they are banned. I like servers like G4B2S and NS Arms Lab because they are really helpful and lenient on rules rather then servers like these that have these "mysterious" rules that you find out AFTER you get banned...
Now you may ask, "why don't you play on other servers?". For people like me, I am not dedicated on one server (since it gets full 75% of the time). I like to journey to different ones, to check out how things are there. It is ridiculous how these people run their servers sometimes. I know NS can be a stressful game, but we are people, we tend to fux up time to time.
I write this to share a testimony of my experiences on these "hard-core" servers. One minor mistake and you are gone... Anyone have similar experiences?
