Fake players blocking access to server

Question

Recently the scum of the community have found a new way to ruin the game for us and use fake players to block genuine players from joining the server. The server will say 64/64(12) but in reality there are only 30 people. This is happening to multiple servers now.

 

These accounts show up in the OnPlayerJoin and OnPlayerAuthenticated events but issuing kicks/bans against their names/GUIDs does not remove them or stop them from joining again.

 

Does anyone know of a way that can be used to remove these accounts? Any other methods to kick/unauthenticate an account besides kick or pbkick? I suspect it will be a case of waiting (hoping) for DICE to fix this.

 

Thanks

    • Hi All,

      So I've been thinking about doing something like this for a while but I always talked myself out of it. I want to get some feedback on this idea and how many would think about using it if it was offered.

      In the past I know how hard it was for some users to get a MySQL database going and running the BFACP (since it's a bit requirement heavy in some cases). What I would be doing is offering to manage both of these for you.

      If enough interest was shown in something like this I would definitely think about doing it. Of course, I also know the risks I would be taking in something like this, but to list what I would be offering I guess is this.

      MySQL Hosting


      Daily backups of the database to a remote site & option to download it yourself.


      No limit on how big your database can be (within reason).




      BFACP Hosting (If running AdKats on your layers)


      This would run the newest version (v3.0)


      Will still be available to run on your own hardware


      Will have extra features that are not available for an open source setup (still need to think of good things )


      Able to use your own domain name with the proper DNS setup.




      Both Above



      Please let me know what you think of this idea and vote in the poll. Again not confirming anything like this will happen but if I get enough interest from the community for something like this then please let me know.

      Disclaimer: This will NOT be something affiliated with MyRCON but will be ran through it in terms of a payment processor.
