I might be alone in this request but I would like to see 2 admin additions:

1. Admin notes for ban kicks
- Simple text entry to add some notes on Why a player was kicked so all server admins are on the same page. This would be accessible via the ingame panel.

2. Ping max kicker
- Add a ping kick to a preset max via the server settings so we keep high ping players off. So if you set the server to kick pings over 200 and a player connects with 285 he will be removed. This goes to players ingame with influxes of ping for whatever reason too.

Yes I know you say ping doesn't matter anymore but some of us admins do see a difference with players warping and lagging out.


Thanks for the read.

2. Great idea, but probably not going to happen. The Devs don't comment on direct requests for this feature, but they believe ping is not a viable offense that deserves kicking. They believe the net code properly handles the situation and provide a pleasant player experience.

They are foolish.

1. Good idea. If you run a website/forum you can always create a private category and post the reasons there. Bit of a hassle but I see that being done for now.

2. I don't ever see that happening. Read over some of the "get rid of high pinger" threads that are 20 pages long.

I don't see there ever being kicks for pings on officials, but it would be a nice tool to have for private servers who don't want this happening on their servers all the time:

You would think people are smart enough by now to know that there are people without a single server on their continent (ASIA,Afrika) and the next best thing is 6000 miles away,yet you see "smart" people make "smart" comments about it like they invented electricity.And imagine that on these places US military personnel is stationed who also plays this game.

I hosted a server on an NFO VPS for close to a year. Nobody in Asia offers a VDS/VPS solution? There are servers other than officials.

There is one in Japan,Hooah JP (inner hospital only)the clan running it is casual, server is somewhat full for an hour or so than everyone goes west coast US.South Africans play EU with 300 ping,South Americans have better ping on JFK around 200 than Dallas because of internet routing.This was all explained in multiple topics cba going into details again,i would also like to talk down from a high horse about high pingers but since i have friends who live in these places comments and topic like this one bother me.

Call it ignorant, but:
- high ping increases "dying behind cover", that's just how it works with client-side
- server owners want to be able to enforce low ping for everyone to prevent those kinds of issues and create symmetry
- anybody could host their own server anywhere in the world

Those are facts that just aren't about to change. The officials have already been declared as "ping agnostic", a safe haven for anybody to connect to from anywhere. Why can't private servers have automated ping limits?
