F12 abuse, revisited

Post by mike_o » Mon Mar 02, 2020 7:18 pm

Could we have an end to this crazyness, please? I was just playing with alcatraz (green team) against tsunami (red team), when tsunami decided to leave. I then signed off (normal way, as usual) to enter the vacant, red team, but upon sign-on, I had been banned for "F12 abuse".

Cmon, what IS going on???

A few minor adjustments to the algorithm could improve the plug-in.

Personally I think the plugin shouldn't exist. Every single time I exit via F12, and I get it's trying to stop abuse but I don't think that's not they way to do it. I'm not sure what is, and it would be great if it was stopped, but not by banning people for quitting with way too many false positives.
I've been working on a real-time stats site called BZList, please check it out! And if you wouldn't mind taking the survey that would be great! It is still in active development, so some features are missing and watch out for bugs.

tbh, I don't see it happening often. When it does, most players known to me pm me about it and it's taken care of.
It does serve somewhat a purpose....as it came about because of f12 abuse.

It's a matter of data. Too little is being used for making well "informed" decisions.
The algorithm could use some minor tweaking as well.
