Setting record straight


(edxot) #1

There are a few things that I never bothered to explain to the “community”, and so, this thread is for that purpose.

  1. It wasn’t Solarisk that found how to log into the server. It was me.
    A long time ago, there was some problem with all the servers in the world and nobody was being able to connect to any of the remaining servers. Some day I saw a server with one player and joined it. He apparently got very surprised about this and in a matter of seconds very more players came to the server, Solarisk being the first one. Then all of them started to compliment him for his discovery. And he took credit for it !!

Well to be honest, I didn’t discover anything myself. This was something that I was doing for ages at that point. It started because something else that happened long before, during the splatterladder phase of the game. During that time I was always looking for servers with a lot of people, so I could get the best possible xp score. Some day I noticed that in my game, in the servers tab, it was providing me false information. It would say that a server was empty when it was in fact almost full. At this point there were 4 servers in America that I would usually play: Crypt, BBA, Micronuts, Cherry Blossom. This was obviously with the intention to fool me, and make me connect somewhere else. After that, I started to use this site “https://www.gametracker.com/search/etqw/” to search for servers, and written a lot of little files that I would execute after starting the game, to join to a server. Example: I have a file called “taweu.cfg” where inside there is just this string: connect 178.162.135.83:27735.

To me, it was good. I immediately knew who was going to be the next hero. I mean, when people are cheating "in any of the zillion possible ways " they still need a good justification for the unexpected game results. And Solarisk was going to be their justification. Thanks for the heads up. You guys told me everything I needed to know in advance.

  1. Legende was, and probably still is, cheating with an aimbot.
    At some point in the past, a player called Roggued presented a demo of Legende killing someone near the mining laser on area 22. I saw the video, and got the feeling that it was aimbot. Because if you would press pause twice very fast on the video, you could see it almost frame by frame. And then you see the mouse movement in very slow motion. And if you do that, you could see that it was not a natural mouse movement. It started with a perfect 45 degrees diagonal, until the cross-air was aligned with the enemy head, and then it moved there in a perfect straight line.

This was surprising to me. That guy had killed me many times in the past, but I never thought he was in any way better then me. I usually play with a lot of different sensitivities on the mouse. And in order to pay all day long, I prefer to use one that is not the best, but that does not require so much work from me. Playing with my best settings would be too exhausting, to the point of having to rest an whole hour after a 20 minute map. Nevertheless I would change it in the game if required, and would be able to kill the guy as necessary, but would only do it for short periods.
At that time my response was to present a demo from someone playing wolfenstein enemy territory with a lot of unbelievable shots. Because Roggued was always saying and doing things intended to heart me. And so, he got the payback from me.

Long time later I had a few strange games against a few fake players. Strange because I wasn’t lagged as usual. From my perspective it was someone trying to configure an aimbot. Trying to make it look better than me, but not so much that would raise suspicion. Only then I realized what was the deal with Legende. He had done the same in the past, and so, he got his aimbot to be better than me, but not too much better.

  1. I was not kicked out of TAW, I left on my own.
    And I had plenty of reasons. Nobody (with a few exceptions) was interested in any sort of practice/preparation before the internal events/matches. My squad leader asked me to play opressor/field ops in a map that I didn’t knew at all (imagine the tk spree). I got asked to play at a NA event just to have some tards teamkilling me intentionally. All this before the last nail in the coffin: I created a thread on TAW forum to explain why I thought that their internal rules were bad, and would heart them in any clan war. It consisted of 3 main ideas:
  • Having a squad leader limits the abilities of his players to his knowledge of the game.
  • Having someone in charge of deciding what everyone should do, was wasting a lot of time during games.
  • And having a plan was not a bad idea at the start of a map, but everyone would immediately want to change it after meeting the enemy and seeing that it was not working. In the way TAW does things, one would have to fail over and over again until the squad leader acknowledges that.
    Was hoping that this thread would open a discussion, that would make things evolve into something better. But no, the thread was deleted, and then someone came to me on Teamspeak to tell me that TAW was not a democracy. Ok, I get it, you want to make this look like some military thing. But it’s not, it’s just a game. From outside perspective all you got there is a pyramid scheme, not some military based clan.
  1. Someone is going to present demos of me using an aimbot. That’s right, after all the retarded things I seen around here, this is going to be the next one. There have been many moments in the recent years (2 or 3) where I felt that I got too lucky. Shots that I thought I missed, but that the game considered as hits. Things that people don’t care too much about, because they just think it’s lag.
    I started paying attention to this after a single episode on salvage. As strogg, after the mining laser was built, jumped the wall and was killing enemies from behind. At some point found an enemy near a window that was almost dead like 1 or 2 health points. He was stopped (not moving) and so I approach him and fired a single shot to the back of his head. He started to move at that exact moment. What happened there still confuses me to this day. The shot I fired missed the target (cause he moved) but then my cross-air snaps to the place where he went, and a second shot hits him in the head. I still don’t get it. I didn’t press the mouse button enough time for that second shot. And there is no auto-shot going on, at least in my games I never seen it shoot without me pressing fire.

That’s all, for now. Better late than never I guess. Even more after seeing all the recent lies building up on other previous lies and causing a lot of damage.

PS: Forum mods please prevent other people from replying to any of this, and including the whole original message. This had been done it the past and the obvious intention is to make the thread as unreadable as possible.

dead game bro chill

Dead or not, someone in TAW still very active. Just listen to what they have done now:

They game administrator privileges to some guy that just joined the clan, while other players that are there since a long time ago still don’t have it.
Then that guy, who you can’t kick or ban because of the admin thing, just comes to the server to act like an idiot. Not even going to present evidence or describe what he has been doing because everyone knows it (or at least, know part of it).
Then some day I get tired of ignoring it. This clown was behind my teams spawn, shooting rockets at something that was in front of it. I don’t know if his intention was to shoot down our teams flyer or just teamkill me. I just saw the rocket passing close enough to me that I decided it was about time to get even. So I also started to teamkill him. One time, two times, and at third time, I got banned !!
It also seems that this was his intention from the start, because he never joined the server again.

To me, this is very annoying. I still have to teamkill this retard at least a couple hundred times before I can call it even.
And for other people too, they also need to teamkill him forever.

Anyone interested in knowing who the server owner is ? Cause I will leak that if this ban continues.


(edxot) #5

Server owner is SUN.Adam

So, what was is it this time ?

Came back recently, and was glad to see I wasn’t banned at TAW vanilla sever in Europe. Played a few games (for a week or so).

And now I am banned again.

And apparently this is not enough because as I tried to join another server, salty bawls in US, the server went off-line and never came back up.

So, I don’t really understand what the problem is. May the person who did it come forward and explain why ? Because now I just can’t play at any vanilla server anywhere.


(edxot) #8

Is this the “lack of respect” thing ?

If it is, just give me my money back, and I will be gone forever. Because some people will never get any respect from me. Am I supposed to respect coldcookiemonster, hunbaba, sinta or drjeckyl with their aimbots ? Or Pliscin-7 after he was disconnecting everyone from servers ?

Or then, consider this other guy: drfunkenstein
This one seems to be respected around, was admin at at least 2 servers, and was “connected” to the punkbuster thing.

But if you ask me, he is just another piece of shit. Because some day, like 10 years ago, I was watching porn at some site, and entered the name of a porn star. The site showed me a collection of her movies and I picked the only one I hadn’t see before, a movie where that girl was using nipple clamps. Then, a couple of days later, or even just a few hours, this drfunkenstein changes his signature at villa forum. Previously it said something about a “paper tiger” and after it became “what sort of person likes nipple clamps ?”.

So, should I respect this guy ? Not only he apparently was using punkbuster to snoop around my computer (for porn instead of cheats), but he also failed at getting the correct information ( I also don’t like nipple clamps, reason why that was the last movie I saw there).

All I ask is a vanilla server where I can play ETQW, since I bought this game to play it on-line. And I don’t want to be forced into playing in servers where admins can force players around, or with stupid mods that only make sense to whom ever created them.

And you ask why this game is dying ? Ranked was good. These mods and bots are bad. Fake nicks are also bad (want to be checking for aimbots every single day ?).


(edxot) #9

Thanks a lot, Salty Bawls server is back on-line and I can play ETQW again !

Would like to use this post to invite people to play there. At first glance this server may look a bit bad because it changes back to “objective maps” after you finish a campaign of 3 maps. But still it let’s you call a vote to start the next campaign, and so this detail is just a little delay.

However, after you overcome the vote thing described earlier, it provides 2 things that no other server will give you:

  1. No stats, meaning you can really play to win.
    Everyone has been in the situation where you are about to start an etqw game that would very interesting/challenging to play. But then you know that if you do, you will probably drop a lot in the ranking system, so you disconnect. Well, in this server there isn’t this problem. You can use your known nick and be OK.

  2. It’s Vanilla and apparently not under the control of the people that seem to have taken control of this game.
    This people that I am talking about have been lying about a little issue, because they in fact don’t like ETQW. You just have to stop listening what they are saying and start watching what they are doing. Some of them dislike the vehicles in the game and created a mod where there are no vehicles. Others made the exact opposite, created a mod where there are more vehicles.

And the server is down again.
Anyone knows why ?
