    Default Cheating accusations getting out of hand.

    Hi I'm Peri Coconuts, I'm a regular on LAZYTOWN and have played here for over 9 months. I love this server, it singlehandedly reignited my love for TF2 and the community is for the most part super friendly and amazing. Lately though I've been getting accused of cheating by random people as well as certain regulars. I found it funny at first but then it quickly went from light accusations to votebans and people who never accused me or even thought of me cheating as a possibility ask me if I'm hacking.


    I guess when a guy with VIP icon next to the name starts calling you a hacker with conviction it makes it look serious and people believe it, and even if they don't believe it they start seeing it as an option which also sucks as most people playing on the server are familiar faces at this point. Today it culminated in some guy I never saw (under that name at least) adding me just to tell me he's recording my gameplay and he's gonna get me banned.


    What I find really ridiculous is that there are many snipers better than me here, just going from memory - Monkeys, James, Skulldeep, Lamb, Quiggles (I hope he doesn't read this), most notably Dust and propably many more. A lot of regulars who main sniper are around my level and I find myself losing about 50% of the duels to them, and I never had another decent sniper accuse me of hacks even jokingly.


    Anyways the demo thing and votebans got me pretty worried, like I said it's the first time in years I'm able to enjoy TF2 and would hate to be banned (not sure how votebans work) due to some witch hunt. Is there anything I can do about it?

    Id suggests, let them record you. state that you are not cheating and that people can just spectate and record you if they like. I mean, if there is no problem, there is no problem for them to see.
    I haven't seen you getting vote banned, but usually, when regulars are on, people don't get pointlessly vote banned. I think if you get vote banned for it, admins can do something about it, I know they have done before.

    Online gaming has turned into a shell of what it used to be and is one of the main reason i don't play many fps games anymore, now days being killed by someone must mean they are cheating because they couldnt possible be better than a casual public player....

    I know you frustration and I've heard it on here before but as Fragmasters runs a self maintained server unless they directly abuse you (you will need demos and screenshots) the only alternative i can give you is to purchase the VIP (i hate having to say that).

    i used to suspect a sniper of being a cheat and sometimes insinuated it, but that was when i started . i know better now that they are just too annoyingly good. votebans on suspected cheating suck sometimes and if i see someone accused these days i try and spectate it myself....

    You enjoy playing on the server, why not help me with the cost of running TF2 server and donate and in return will get immunity from vote bans etc.

    Your donation will be much appreciated.
