UT2k4 Freon server rules
Reply With Quote


Server is way too busy and normally full during the night, so there is going to be specific rules for it.

  • If idlers don't get kicked by the server itself, they will get banned by an admin with one week minimum punishment. Server is pretty much full all night and it's not fair to take a spot and idle.
  • Messing around on the server: jumping in the lava, excessive suicide, shield gunning team mates voluntarily, and/or anything of that kind will result in permanent ban. If there is anyone else who likes to take a shot at UT while you're gone, lock him/her out when you're leaving the room. We ban your CD key, not a particular person.
  • Spectators slot is for spectators... clear as mud. If you're going to take a piss then you can use it, but if you're going to have a half hour dinner leave the server and don't take a spot, or you will get banned for the rest of the night.
  • Shooting rockets/flak aimlessly with or without a person in sight, or to inflict splash damage only, or to block a doorway is considered spam and will result in one week ban. Teleporter camping with the shield or goo gun is also an offense. Let's not disrupt the game flow by sitting by a teleporter... Trust me, your team will benefit way more if you go and thaw them. If you think you can only play with rockets and flak, try other weapons and we will help you get better at them. Spamming is no excuse.

I almost play there every night, and I'm watching you. If you don't agree with what I had to say please play elsewhere.
Thanks for your attention.

Whatever we have allowed on other servers.

And with "rules" like these it's no surprise. Kicking/banning for idling or being a douche is one thing, but banning for "spamming doorways" is a great way to kill a server.

It's just a game, folks. Have fun.

and being smart without realizing that such server no longer exists is a great way of making a fool of yourself.

I was not being "smart", I understand the server no longer exists, which is part of the point I was making. The rules may not have been the only reason for it disappearing, however I can imagine that a server that bans for spamming rockets would be less popular than a server where only standard "no cheating/douching" rules apply. My comment was not aimed at Freon specifically, because god knows there are way crappier servers out there... just using it as an example.

And, it doesn't make any sense to ban over spamming rockets. I love getting hit by something random when I'm playing, it's just funny.

As for making a fool of myself, not sure about that. I'm just making an observation and expressing an opinion based solely on what I've experienced in my years of online playing, which is, special rules = empty server, especially those that limit and punish players who exercise fundamental gameplay mechanics... like spam.

MMM MMM I LOVE ME SOME SPAM.

FREON isn't like ONS. It's a game of skill with weapons as opposed to a game of strategy with nodes. spamming in freon is like camping the Mino in ONS... well, not really, but on the annoy-o-meter it's pretty similar. People play freon to try to do well with the whole run-and-gun thing, not just get fragged by random flak.

That makes sense. I'll accept that

I'm not trying to push any buttons here... though I can see how some might get their panties twisted. My bad.

Core, you're a young whippersnapper on this server. You don't know the history. *shakes cane*

Freon and Monster Hunt were shut down to make way for the 64-player UT3 server, to free up bandwidth and processing power for the new hotness Epic was about to unleash upon us.. er, about in November 2007.

That Epic Failure crushed our hopes and dreams and we have not yet recovered from their treachery.

Freon is gametype where you have two teams. Instead of killing the other team, you freeze them. They can be thawed by their teammates. If you freeze the entire team, your team recieves a point. The first team to 10 wins! It's really fun. You should give it a try. DM skillz will help your ONS skillz, on those occasions where you have to dump your burning vehicle and take on an enemy vehicle/player on foot.

Freon will probably come back soon... no ETA yet.

Came here to say this. Freon also had a low douche-to-friends ratio, which was in part thanks to more restrictive rules.

Can someone help me get the TAM/Freon mod?
