To SI-PrOzAc,

I reckon you were playing the same server as me last night because we had one guy come in and ghost but he also was able to switch teams during the game and all he did was TK everyone on his team. The host had gone to bed and he even ghosted his name and caused havoc. This joker was a right pain in the butt as we had about 34 on the server when he turned up and TKed everyone./i/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

Don't know either what this is all about but the conclusion is very simple:

On these forums with relatively small participation of gamers, UBI is able to control the simple rules of politeness and behaviour. Well, we - the gamers - know how to behave so the problem is very limited in here. The ones who don't know how to behave, disappear very quickly.

On the servers where the majority of players wants to have fun, UBI cannot control a small group of youngsters that succeeds in spoiling it for many.

So the conclusion is that UBI feels obliged but is not interested to maintain the game server and hopes , by allowing these youngsters to dominate, that people will look for other servers or direct IP games.

After all it would be very simple for UBI to do random checks, ban players or set up a server for dedicated players.

You have bought the game, the money is in the bank, so what the heck!

BuckoM and sahlhamm ghosting is when a player hacks a game and is able to use the same name as a player in the game or switch between teams during a game as he has control over what he does. He can also change his name and come back to the game and know one really knows who it is until the game starts and your being TKed. He might take over your in game name and call someone a @#**% and it appears as if you had said it.

Punks just never quit I guess. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif They'll continue to do it because we'll never get to them - like you and I had discussed previously in another thread. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Okay, the ghosting question was never really answered, so here it is.

UBI.com Game Service Manager uses IRC for their chat in the lobbies for various games. UBI dropped the ball when the failed to put a password on the IRC chats, so people could use mIRC to join to the chat rooms instead of the UBI Manager. When you join thru mIRC (the client) you can choose your screen name and change it to whatever you want- whenever you want.

So what these lil' 10 year old punks do is make their name identical to someone elses name in the chat and says self-insulting things like "I'm gay", and "I cheat" and many other things, sometimes they are pretty disguting and gross. They will even spam under the "ghosted" name and completely anger everyone else in chat. Not knowing there is a ghost, they page the UBI account that is being ghosted and complain and insult them.

It is a rather vicious attack. I do not even speak on the chat anymore as I would never want this to happen to me.

BTW, all UBI has to do is put a password that is embedded in the UBI manager that would be needed for the chat, so people could only use UBI to join the chat. Or they could even use different software for their chat. It would be a simple ONE DAY operation to fix it. But UBI doesn't want to fix it. They don't care. (AND THEY'RE FRENCH /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif )

Don't mess with a big monkey with a handgun...unless you have an M-16

Sorry to jump in, new member and don't know all that much. I agree with all of you about the Ghosting. What about utilizing Voice Over Net to eliminate the idea of someone taking over your identity in the game... perhaps that way the server can block out the bad apple?

To Tommy_Guns,

Welcome to the game and forums and feel free to give your ideas and have a say my friend.

Don't be jumpin' in with your johnny-come-lately, Voice Over Net futuristic space ideas if you don't have a solution. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Voice over the net would be sweet, but I think it requires more bandwidth than Ubi wants to provide, doesn't it? I know it's not as bad as video, but I think it's more than, say, a reasonably-sized picture. I know most clans use comms, but even that requires a dedicated server and may more bandwidth than Ubi (or others) wants to provide for free.

The second part of the problem is that other than these forums it seems that Ubi doesn't care about the trash-mouthed punks on it's game server.

You've probably touched a nerve and should get plenty of responses... /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

If I have touched a nerve that may induce good ideas or requests to Ubi to go ahead and set up some sort of a system or server that would support voice over or even just to get them to start monitoring for gamers who do "Ghost" around and interrupt other gamers-I would be glad.
I though that Ubi had a server for our gaming pleasures?

Why would they not? Mind that I am in no way IT or Programming inclined. I know that Sony does have support for the Voice over Net-look at S.O.C.O.M. games-you get to talk to your team mates while playing on line-I think it is the software that allows for that though I am not sure.

Someone will be along that knows better, but I think Ubi used to bundle Teamspeak (or similar program) with some games, but eventually gave up...
