@G.O.A.T

Again GDPR asks you to remove all IP, DNS lookup, geo locs about my UDP connections straight away. Private data is not only about your real name.

I don't have any agreement with you @G.O.A.Talocaloc sanafur as all players fingered on your delation page via your IP lookups.

I'm not aware of holding any of your IP, DNS, geo locs of yours UDP connections.

I totally agree GDPR also consider IP address as personal data if connected to real person.

Anyway I strongly disagree with argument that if in any my local file there is your IP address stored by any means this IP address is connected to your real person - it looks to me to be annonymized.  Wildfiregames also states in their agreements they do not have knowledge who are you, as they don't require to collect such data as other companies are forced to do (like banks, or other commercial services).

In this case I consider myself as player of the game with same restriction and agreement approval as you. 

Further you are addressing some player names like alocaloc and sanafur which are not familiar to me, you might need address it directly to them.

TimidSmurf was created to reverse engineering your code/process. You were able to catch the account without any game the first time you enter the tg and get the ip, before I say hello...

@G.O.A.T / sanafur / alocaloc - it's not u who decides what's anonymized or not... see how you track... Yes no marketing reuse - just pure denunciation. I frankly don't think it's better.

And your overall initiatives don't help the game by fingering players (I have never seen a Wall Of Shame as such in any other game). Having a second account, don't mean you don't give you accurate rating for a balance TG. Falsy ratings imbalance far more...

I don't have any lesson to receive from your behavior @G.O.A.TSanafur AlocAloc. What a shame!

Clean your mess and my private data you're saving. Again we don't have any agreement.

From my point of view:
Smurf problem is bc small community and small community is bc lag and bad game's performance. 

Everyone wants to play with known players and many "pros" seems to be afraid to play with "unknown" bc they don't know what his enemy would do.

So the new ones can't play with those 40/50 good players and many times u have to wait 10/20 minutes or more to play. And many times, someone who was waiting so long to play its removed bc some balancing thing.

In fact, "Smurf problem" it's just a matter for old players and big problem for a few "Zealots of the Balance".

U always can ask to that "smurf" what lvl is and most of the time he'll answer.

Ofc we all wants to play balanced games. But i think we are taking this to the extreme.

We should think in ways to improve the game's performance, ways to make money, fund rising, buying coffes, idk but there's a group of ppl that works so hard to give us this RTS experience (The Best in the genre) and we should think better ways to help instead of asking those few devs to make some kind of anti smurf algorithm, wtf are we talking about?

Full love for you, no problem about balance in game

1. I think GOAT might not be sanafur or AlocAcoc, he could be another fulltime troll.

2. GOAT 's smurf list contains some facts but also many errors.

3. rm -rf is the lobby account of distrotube, also the Linux command to forcefully remove directories.

4. I haven't been online in the past 3 weeks, so anyone who claimed to be me was an imposter.

5. Reza-maths has access to many of my accounts

6. Join 0kd discord server to find out more.

7. STOP PLAYING AND MOURN FOR THE DEATH OF OUR QUEEN!

I'm not Phyzic, but if I ignore that claim I like the list. Please don't remove it

I don't see why we should make an exception for you. There is already one as @G.O.A.T isn't in the list too...

You're Phyzic now @Player of 0AD

More seriously this wall of shame must end and we should rather all be scared of this kind of toxic mindset.

Yes.

What "toxicity"?

@Philip the SwaggerlessI take it as second degree.

I could understand it helps a few BIG EGO players to say they lose because of multiple accounts..

The sad reality if some TGs are broken first because of many fully obsolete and incorrect ratings ( @G.O.A.T nothing about the fact you're falsy rated 1500 ?) and second, more important, because of a full misunderstanding about ELO/Glicko. Only 2000+ would play all games constantly at their levels. Under, there is a strong deviation, all can underperform or do mistakes which can cost the TG.

I would love to see less network lags, less private data captures (-> RGPD), and less wall of shames.

And @G.O.A.Tassuming his responsibilities.

I don't understand your meaning.  Are you saying you are referring to toxicity that is of a lesser severity, like the 2nd degree murder is extreme than 1st degree murder?

Incidentally, without question, the most toxic behavior I've seen in lobby or in games is by players that I know have multiple accounts.

You're making personal attacks about people here, right after complaining about toxicity.  I don't mind losing I just prefer better games.

The lack of accurate ratings means that frequent players can best balance the game by knowing who the players are.

I would be happy to see improvements in ELO. I imagine that if ELO worked perfectly here, smurfs & new players would be filtered out of 1500+ level games.  Would not the smurf then trash a bunch of low players to get a high rating?  Or maybe they would conclude it is not worth the effort.

What is annoying about it to me is that there is no need for smurfing.  If you make a new account because you lost a password (and for some reason cannot have it reset by the staff) and people ask you if you have an alternate account, just tell them what the other account name is.  If you don't want people to predict your strategy, maybe try a new one?  That is a big part of the fun of RTS games.

Euh @Philip the Swaggerless please read carefully my sentences. Only "I take it as second degree." is addressed to you.

The remain part is a general statement not a personal attack - see it's a new paragraph - then your answers to it are just pure sophism at least in my mind.

Yes there is far too much ego in many so-called PRO players. I clearly assume this sentence. Else this topic would have ended very quickly and the @G.O.A.Tprofile closed.

I think we are not looking at the issue in correct manner. First of all, the reason why this feature was created

  1. To stop pro players messing up games for new playes as they disguised as new player and ruin game for them.
  2. As for pro players, they want to have balanced Team game or 1v1 match.

By knowing who this player actually is, people and host can decide about the player. Now,

  1. If player forgot the password and created a new account, player will have no issue on telling who he is. It is actually good for him that people can still remeber by his old account and he can play as known player.
  2. If player is not comfirtable with revealing his old account that means he wants to remian as smurf in the game.

By releaving the alternative accounts this feature achieve its goal somehow. Although it might have following issue.

  1. Wrongly tagging players and so on. - Something that feature will need improvemet and need input from community. And if players think that they are affected by worngly tagging as different player then we might want to explore alternative approach.
  2. Using some data which shouldn't be used (maybe, i don't know) - Something that @Stan` can check.

To conclude: This feature/mod is giving the solition for which this thread is created. If there is something wrong in the solution then that can discussed and corrected accordingly.

In other thread I asked @G.O.A.T to remove xaiki and wilsonwilson as my smurf names since they are not me. He didnt answer neither removed. 
I repeat it again in loud voice: THIS ACCOUNTS ARE NOT MINE and if someone keeps accusing me of that he must SHOW ME THE PROOF AS HE SHOULD DO IN ANY CIVILIZED ENVIROMENT

It seems like anybody con acuse someone of smurf without giving those proof and we are ok with it. Not a big deal, right? Well, is it a big deal to me.

I've being force to answer questions of 0ad friends asking me if I was using this 2nd and 3rd account. People who I respect and I care about what they think about me are now wonder if i'm not fooling them with lies. And I can notice how the paranoia atmosphere is getting bigger. I don't want to be dramatic. I still think this is just a minor issue and it's better not to give him too much attention or ourself will get it bigget than it is. But this questions happened. And I feel bad for that.

Also this @G.O.A.T sent me a private message with "smurf tag" as topic in a clear reference to my intervention in this thread with only a banana. In a clear intention of harras me or being rude because my way of think about this  "big issue".
And then he didn't tell me anything else.

Also who is this @G.O.A.T in lobby? It seems he can use a disguise but we can't? What rights he has to do that? Maybe he uses this nickname, I never saw him online. So I won't go further and ask what is his real name on Lobby. Or maybe I should apply the same principle and ask him to prove everybody he is not using multiple accounts.

Now I'm being forced to prove myself as a non smurfer and not the other way around. I don't know how we turned around the Principle of Innocence and here some people believe they have the right to accuse someone and -again- not give ANY PROOF to sustain his accusations.

Ddosing has being a worse problem and I know few people getting involve and working hard trying to catch ddosers or even creating mechanism to avoid it. And most of the time these people were very careful in terms of sharing his suspicions with everybody in clear responsabile attitude about his claims and actions. I also  never seen a ddos wall of shame...

About the big issue for the pro players. I want to ask you in good faith. How many times you have lost rating in 1v1 against a smurf? How many games were ruined because one smurf came and turn upside down the balance you tried to make?

I'm sure most of us needs just a few games, three as much to realize someone is a smurf. Most of the case we doesn't even need to play to realize. We see one new name coming to our game and we can ask one or two simple questions to realize if this new name is brand new or if he has experience. 

Some people say this is an issue for new players because they are deceived by pro smurf who ruin his games. I don't believe this is an issue for new players. They mostly are full of energy and wants to learn.  U know what is a big issue for new players? Harrasing, bullying, being called "noob, cosmic, piece of sh*t, full-trash" U know what is an issue for many no white-caucasic-european-hegemonic people? Being called favela, banana republic, sudaka, nig*g*a: being called spaniard sh*t, for example. Xenophofia, toxicity, ddosing.

Those are big issues if we want to get involve with something. And I can keep on with the big issues: performance problems, lag problem, convincing people to use community-mod that we all know the benefits it has; lack of developers getting involved in the projects; whole game balance problems. 

Then, if some of you wants to go further with this mod, and thinks this could be a great help to improve balancing and all you have said in this thread. All right, go on, this is a free world.

BUT I need to ask you all: don't acuse me or anybody of being a smurf, or having another accounts without giving proof. It's not right and it's unfair to force people to prove his innocence.
Now I ask particulary to @G.O.A.T to remove those claims about me or to show the proof to everybody, here in the thread, as he should do in any modern trial.

Now, because @G.O.A.T forced me to do this I will show you the few things I collected to prove I'm not WilsonWilson:
Needless to say I will do the same the day I see xaiki.
I think this is enough prove to ask @G.O.A.T to remove his claims. Are you agree @Philip the Swaggerless, @Darkcity @Player of 0AD, @Sevda, @Dakara?


Also I wish you to know I don't have nothing personal against any of you or anyone who finds this mod a good idea. Particulary you @Philip the Swaggerless you were always kind to me and I never saw you behaving toxic or something like that. I'm telling this to you just in case. Same applys to @Darkcity and @Player of 0AD they also teach and give advices in a good manner, but just in case, I've added this explanation to you and not being missunderstood.
Cheers and long live to zero ey-dee

@Philip the Swaggerless Nothing related to your native language... You just don't know that labeling @Philip the Swaggerless applies only for the related sentence and not the following paragraphs (see the blank line ?!). I could have added All: or @all to avoid your confusion (fyi this is basic minute practice). Having explained that, please reread/reconsider my posts. Sorry to write you're misinterpreting a lot...

Absolutely right. This is an important principle of any democracy. Innocent until proven guilty. So far the only evidence shown actually disproves the accusation that guerringuerrin is WilsonWilson.

I'll add to the evidence that guerringuerrin has posted. On Wednesday, WilsonWilson was playing a rated 1v1 against BeTe. I joined as spectator.

Their populations were 62 and 95 at minute 10, with WilsonWilson having the lower population of the two. BeTe, a 1049 rated player, destroyed WilsonWilson in that rated 1v1. WilsonWilson got 12 kills, BeTe got 100. WilsonWilson resigned at about 19 minutes.

WilsonWilson has played 263 rated games, 125 of which were wins. His rating is 1073. I don't know why anyone would think that WilsonWilson and guerringuerrin are the same person. It's an insult to guerringuerrin as he is not that unskilled. I'm joking. He's significantly skilled, and WilsonWilson isn't.

Yup. Actually, I would like to see both. What's the evidence in the first place, and remove the claim since it's been disproven.

@G.O.A.T Your list of alternate accounts (not necessarily all or even most are smurfs, since "smurf" means lying about one's skill) is useful. Please keep updating it. Also, please act responsibly and ensure that you are following the golden rule: Do Unto Others as You Would Have Them Do Unto You. That means don't use alternate accounts yourself if you consider it so bad. It means have a high standard of proof before making accusations. It means correct mistakes promptly. It means answer questions when people ask you what the evidence is.

You're not violating GDPR by collecting anonymous information about players. It's not personally identifiable. Don't worry about what rm-rf is saying about that. But, please, follow your own rules, as well.
