Upon using any of the following, you may be warned once; the second time is a ban from faf for a month; third is for 6 months; Final will be a ban from FAF, indefinitely.
You can appeal these.
This also includes any cheating involving changing rating. Examples include having friends donate rating, multiple accounts to donate rating, etc.
New exploits can and will be added without any prior notice.
Using terraforming intentionally to block units/mess with pathfinding, also flattening an obstacle to allow units through is not allowed.
Using unit interactions to abuse pathfinding e.g moving a unit up or down a cliff, similar to terraforming
Blocking or causing the game to slowdown or lag on purpose.
Uploading or using a blatant "cheat" map (ie. with tons of wrecks on only one side of the map)
Using any modifications to see through the fog of war
The bug that allows rebuilding of units that were in production at a cheaper cost.
Walking with ACU while upgrading. On purpose, that is. Walking with ACU/Engies and building would fall under this if anyone figures out how to do it.
Making invincible units.
Causing drops to die by building underneath.
Making units regenerate life/shields without a mechanic i.e natural health regen or veterancy
Anything else that is breaking the game in some fashion.
Glitching to get a Hover ACU.
Giving bases to avoid damage by enemy ythotha storm.
Any bug that creates mass and energy out of nothing.
Creating structures within structures, or their footprint. Adjacent to mex issues are not included in this, as it's an unintended consequence of another change, hopefully fixed soon.
Pausing to try and gain some advantage i.e dodging snipes.
Don't host rated FFA or rated X v Y games, (uneven games)
Don't play on multiple accounts in the same game.
Using any script to alter information shown to the lobby/client or game
Using a mod (or any other way) on a map with random spawns that shows exactly which player has which start point and faction.
Using ctrl+K to avoid taking damage on the unit wreck.
Intentionally transferring unit control to allies to mess with enemy unit orders, targeting and/or recharge rates.
Using Novax (satellite) to destroy nukes on top of the nuke launcher
Transferring Novax satellite ownership and destroying it for resources
Building higher tier hives directly using exploits, instead of upgrading them
If it's not here, report it. Send a pm to moderation team with a description and a replay.
Please report instances of these exploits via our report form here or contact a moderator.
You mean this?
Not an active reddit user myself, but I agree with the points brought up in the first post. Sounds good to me if biass wants to initiate a discussion about these with the current reddit administrators. Moderation team will co-operate when/if necessary.
Haven't seen any previous requests, would also need more information about what is the issue with the linking, besides "not working". Maybe make a separate thread for it?
PS. Nobody "works here", people contribute.
Do you get a crash message or does it just freeze? Try to play separately to find out which one of you have the issue.
As a general tip game likes to crash more often if you have it in fullscreen mode, I recommend using windowed mode.
T1 mex, T2 mex, T3 mex, RAS SCU, Paragon...
Icons are finished, voila.
Might be worth looking into general PC stability then, memtest etc.
You can also try to delete these folders:
Then ofcourse reinstall the main game, update your drivers etc. regular troubleshooting.
I see no bans or anything preventing logging in (on the account used to write this thread).
Well it is on our actual page where you do the steam linking, but I guess it could be added here too if not already existing
This specific case was dealt with already. We have the report form system (https://faforever.com/account/report) where players can report other users breaking the rules. Everything is logged there for moderators to review, troublemakers who often break the rules get longer and longer punishments which can ultimately lead to permanent bans.
Have you made sure your profile and game list is public, not only the friends etc. as per this guide https://imgur.com/a/enuUlAb
My car doesn't work, better call the plumber and rant at him.
(If you give us details someone might actually try to help you)
Anyway, like brutus said there is a fix on the way. I tried an initial version of the fix and it made it significantly better, not perfect, but much better.
No times carved in stone, but for us to consider a moderator he/she must be willing to at least spend some moderate time being active. If you want you can spend hours reviewing reports, but even just being online few hours per day and available to glance at the chat(s) & answering questions now and then with a few reviewed reports/week is helpful.
Cleaned up some posts, if you are interested send me an application, don't post here. If you have something to discuss or ask regarding the application, post here or pm me.
