Version: 1.0.0.1

 

 

Description:

 

Prevents statspadding when only 1 or 2 players are on the server.

The plugin checks whether a player keeps gaining points without killing someone, or earning more points than killing would give him.

Players get warned 5 times before being kicked or banned. The plugin just starts monitoring when 2 or less players are online.

 

 

Configuration:

* Remove Option: Kick/Permanent Ban --- toggles whether a statspadder should be kicked or permbanned (name)

 

 

Download:

 

Link* or Package System

 

 

Changelog:

1.0.0.0: Initial Release

1.0.0.1: Plugin actually removes the players :biggrin:

 

 

This is just a very basic version, which doesn't have much functionality. Feel free to post improvements :smile:

Pretty simple and nice to have. :ohmy:

Reminds me to the news that EA/DICE is going to ban all EOD expoiters... stats padding with experience points gained.

thanks simple but effective. A quick question i have also seen players that stats pad on a full server, will you be extending the functionality of the plugin to work beyond the 2 Player start?

 

thanks !

The plugin checks whether a player keeps gaining points without killing someone, or earning more points than killing would give him.

 

I'd hardly call that fair to assault, they can contribute without getting tons of kills.

Well, i haven't looked at the code but i guess it would use some calculations to get near a points/minutes rate including a grace periode. For example the EOD exploit caused DICE to think about banning players who receive more than 500 points per minute...

And yes, i agree to d43dr00 that this plugin should be able to kick on full servers. To have such morons on a full server is very frustrating.

 

Thank you so far . . .

If you have any sample values for me, I'm happy to include it. Atm, I dont have time to do intense tests, so I just did a quick implementation.

Hi Morpheus,

 

 

On our server i have seen many folks with 0 Kills 1+ deaths and very high scores e.g. 5000+ the tell tail sign seems to be no kills but huge scores. Is that what you are after ?

Is that when the server is full or empty?

This plugin would be awesome if it also caught players who are Stat Padding while server runs with more players/full server.

 

Example: Lots of NOOBs are Stat Padding by damaging the EOD Bot and then repairing it while everyone else if playing on the full server. They tend to do this far away where most don't venture off too.

@labernet: ill look at that again.

can only give you this additional information: they had something like 1 to 3 stats or 3 to 2 (meaning they sometimes killed the other person), but points of nearly 60k when i cought them

MorpheusX(AUT), got the same problem.

Just kicked 2 guys setting / resetting mcoms. Both had a 10K+ score. Plugin did not kick in.

 

Normally I wouldn't mind a bit of nightly boosting on my servers,

but now that XpKiller's stats plugin is nearly finished I really would like to have a clean(ish) leaderboard :smile:

 

Suggestion:

Set a limit to the points gained without making a kill.

Something like this:

 

1st warning @ 1500 points

2nd warning @ 2000 points

etc etc.

 

After warning 5: Kick or Ban

 

Or, when it's possible, maximum for score per minute?

 

I hope DICE will fix the game, not giving points below 4 players like in BC2.

Do you have any info about this?

a) get score + kills from admin.listPlayers every 30 seconds (or more often, if you have multiple procon clients connected)

B) store kills/scores + previous kills/scored (the ones from the admin.listPlayers before)

c) compare if kills or points have changed:

i) if both changed: if newPoints - oldpoints > newKillsMade * 100 + 100, statspadding detected (each kill gives 100points, plus some extra for whatever :biggrin:)

ii) if just points changed: if the difference between new and old points is > 150, statspadding detected.

d) system counts statspadding 5 times, kicking/banning the player at his fifth violation. sending chat-warnmessages before

 

Maybe admin.listPlayers gets triggered too fast, so they don't reach that pointlimit... I will go do some statspadding on my server later, and try to figure out why its not working. Once I find the bug, ill release a quick update (no full-server antistatspadding included, since that will require serious match-analysis to figure out good values, which I dont have time for atm).

We are also having the issue where it is not kicking the padders.

I actively monitor my server while at work and have had to manually kick the odd random player who has lots of points, several deaths, no kills.

 

They're very easy to see, basically the best they can get is 1000 in conquest for a 5 cap. then they suicide and go back the other way.

 

I've been manually typing "Stat-Padding Detected: name" in say all and the padders immediately leave now that theyve been publicly pointed out.

 

Hope you get it going soon, its a good idea!

The fullserver-antistatspadding version is postponed a bit, so I can concentrate on University + CheaterAlert.

  • Our picks

    • I wanted I let you know that I am starting to build out the foundation for the hosting services that I talked about here. The pricing model I was originally going for wasn't going to be suitable for how I want to build it. So instead I decided to offer each service as it's own product instead of a package deal. In the future, hopefully, I will be able to do this and offer discounts to those that choose it.

      Here is how the pricing is laid out for each service as well as information about each. This is as of 7/12/2020.

      Single MySQL database (up to 30 GB) is $10 USD per month.



      If you go over the 30 GB usage for the database then each additional gigabyte is charged at $0.10 USD each billing cycle. If you're under 30GB you don't need to worry about this.


      Databases are replicated across 3 zones (regions) for redundancy. One (1) on the east coast of the USA, One (1) in Frankfurt, and One (1) in Singapore. Depending on the demand, this would grow to more regions.


      Databases will also be backed up daily and retained for 7 days.




      Procon Layer will be $2 USD per month.


      Each layer will only allow one (1) game server connection. The reason behind this is for performance.


      Each layer will also come with all available plugins installed by default. This is to help facilitate faster deployments and get you up and running quickly.


      Each layer will automatically restart if Procon crashes. 


      Each layer will also automatically restart daily at midnight to make sure it stays in tip-top shape.


      Custom plugins can be installed by submitting a support ticket.




      Battlefield Admin Control Panel (BFACP) will be $5 USD per month


      As I am still working on building version 3 of the software, I will be installing the last version I did. Once I complete version 3 it will automatically be upgraded for you.





      All these services will be managed by me so you don't have to worry about the technical side of things to get up and going.

      If you would like to see how much it would cost for the services, I made a calculator that you can use. It can be found here https://ezrcon.com/calculator.html

    • I have pushed out a new minor release which updates the geodata pull (flags in the playerlisting). This should be way more accurate now. As always, please let me know if any problems show up.
