    This is the worst idea for a server that I have ever heard in my life.

    Why? A server exclusively for people w/ plenty of experience to play w/ other people w/ plenty of experience so as to avoid playing frustrating games w/ people w/ hardly any experience sounds like a decent enough idea to me.

    I notice extra lagging late game that I didn't used to see on the servers until recent patches, webadmin? Maybe

    And 2 cough, I know what you mean, I was on the server for the last time when gibs had some patch on where he wasn't taking damage as skulk - that's a no-go from me

    Ouch, admin using god mode during game. That's never good.

    I've been there when he's done that and he never actually does damage to anyone and from what I've seen its in a joking manner for a min or so. I've activated it once on myself on his server as well testing some bug for 60 seconds. Its never actually abused in the server.

    I had 30 NS servers during that time period. I can only play on one server at a time. If it had not been for my testing new features with NSAdmin, we wouldn't have had health on armories, teleports for marines, and other nice goodies you see standard in NS2 now.

    Yes, indeed I used NSAdmin's features. I asked for every little feature it provided, including flares, *MY* BFG, lerk lift, res sharing, and other Kahunastrator goodies. In addition, it was an awesome tool to catch aim botters, wall hackers, and other game cheaters. I make no apologies for it what so ever. If we (voogru and myself) had not produced such a product, we might not have what we have in NS2 today. Just a thought.

    That's completely different from an admin using, and allowing other users to use god mode during actual game play. Especially, given the fact, that server owner only has 1 server, and when multiple admins running around with God Mode; doesn't provide for very fair game play. I think my use of WebAdmin (which I have never explained how we use it, nor will I discuss), supersedes the use of cheating during a game.

    Getting back on topic: Starting this weekend, we'll begin daily, and weekend events on Hive 2 (500+hrs). There will be daily "gathers", and other surprises we'll announce on our website. Invites will be from our Steam Group, which anyone can join. The gathers, and "secret" events will be posted there, with times to begin. We will give away prizes for winners, and regular participants. We look forward to seeing you there!

    How ironic.

    Also good luck with the Event. Looks like the server has sat empty the last 10 days so that seems like a good plan to try and get some rounds played. ~50% of the 50 rounds played right now is under 10 mins.

    Thank you. Cya there. Just so you know, this will mean the 250+hr server will be empty. With player base shrinking rapidly, we never expected to fill them all. We intend to use them in different ways.

    That last stat shows the power of playing with experienced players, doesn't it.

    Not quite sure what you mean by this. Are you trying to say that higher level games typically last under 10 minutes? Please do explain.

    Thank you. Cya there.

    I don't think you'll be seeing current1y there, since you have him banned. :p

    No need trying to explain. You wouldn't get it.

    Great point. You and currently can use God Mode on your server while we have our own events going on. You can call it, "Playing with each other" on Gibs Gorge Hut. lol

    I've very rarely played on your servers, more/less to test out a mod when all the other servers are full. I don't like servers with over 18, much less 20.

    When I joined the community(NS2) I immediately heard nothing but bad things about you, lots of drama. Regardless of whether those things are true or not, your posts here and what you've said definitely do not help your case. Hearing rumors, and just from reading your posts, I'd never play on a server ran by someone like you, regardless of whether your server had better registration/ping/flow.

    EDIT: I guess they aren't just rumors.

    That all being said, I'm finished with you Gibs. You sir have a nice day. I'll not respond to any other messages from you.

    Hey, KingKahuna two questions. Why do you continue to talk with Gibs after posting this? Also how is your server idea actually holding up?
    Haven't seen a single post talking about if this idea actually worked out.

    That was very subtle, but unneeded. I laughed though.

    So if anybody is banned by KingKahuna (or any of his Admins) in NS2, they will not be able to write any sort of request to appeal their ban. Nice.

    Ok, so opinions aside currently most popular NS2 hosting is as following (right now)

    5 KKG servers full (80+ players)
    WOOZAs Full (41)
    IBIS 18 combat 20 NS2 (38)
    UWE 3 servers less then 12 each (34)

    Why when the community is already so incredibly small and dwindling do we have people going around bashing people who are hosting the largest individual player base. While I understand people have problems with king why is it necessary to publicly attack a person who seems to be trying to keep this game alive. If you dont like his server dont play there its simple.

    I personally was banned from all KKG servers last year, at which point I didnt care and simply played on other servers. After a few months it got annoying to not be able to play on populated servers so I talked with King on team speak. He placed me on "probation" and 2 months later I was a KKG admin.

    So yes I still dont know why I was banned... but im guessing the reason I am no longer banned is because I did the "adult" thing and went to him and ask instead of bitching to the world. This childish finger pointing is one more reason this game is dieing (thankfully this forum died faster then the game so only 20 people will read this crap)

    But hey its the interweb, whats there to do but point fingers and bitch.

    King bans users who uphold forum rules and policies that he agreed to when signing on to post on said forums. (you may notice i had to register a new name just to respond)
    Then when you go to repeal being unbanned, he bans you from his forums and in other's case, TS3.. so there's absolutely zero way to do "the adult thing"..

    Every time you ask for troubleshooting without providing system info, ATI adds a rendering bug for an upcoming game.

    When you feel you need to be rude or angry about a game, just read these links and remember what role you are playing:

    I never did like KKG web-site had a lot of issues with it myself... BUT for those of you who do honestly want to try and get your ban lifted I would suggest you load up Teamspeak and join KKG and actually talk to him. Granted this probably wont help some of the more vocal persons who have bashed on him and his servers, but for some who knows (it worked for me)

    Oh, and a bit of humility goes a long way whether you like it or not his servers are some of the most active servers and not being able to play on them... Well not playing on a KKG server does limit your options...




    Though to be honest, I think all of this is kinda a moot point, this game is dieing which is very sad... As I played NS1 and NS2 and.... oh wait i havnt played any other games since NS1... the only game I played before NS1 was starcraft (shareware).... Ah yes the starcraft shareware games, Byways and EZ-Loader... Oh well, I guess when this game dies off my wife will be happy.

    +1 for what @maD_maX_‌ said. Do we really need more schisms dividing this already dwindling player base? This whole thread has turned into 1-upping, tech-bashing, "cool kids vs. cool kids" mess. It's pretty childish on all party's accounts. Makes me feel like if I were to play at KKG serv, I wouldn't be welcomed elsewhere and vice verse, which is shit, as there's already so few places to play.

    And people say the ns2 community is snobby and elitist. With derailed threads like this that get into such crap over splitting hairs, it's no wonder.

    The only reason KKG server got off the ground is because I had personal life issues and stopped with my servers. He picked up where All-In left off. GG. Anyone can do what he is doing and better IF they want to put teh money up. Just make sure you ego isnt as big as his please. Just think of what his name means in teh first place. Keep feeding that ego everyone.
