The game is active every day, and even if it wasn't the devs would have no problem
because it's a closed alpha. To my understanding, they are more busy developing basic parts of the game than they are concerned about high player counts (despite what the 64p servers would imply).

If they wanted to test with more than the 20~ people peaks the game currently has then I'm sure something like this could work, but it seems like they would go about it themselves without us instigating it.

If you or any others want to play with a full 64 player server, maybe try a community-organized event?

Suddenly speaking freely in unmoderated chat is the moral equivalent of murder.

grasping at straws and trying to come up with procedural loopholes in an unfinished closed Alpha because the toxic troll who did everything possible to get banned

Except there was no rule, precedent, or warning that he'd get banned. So no, there was never anything possible to do to get banned.

yeah m8 the thing is we all read your post and no one cares and now you've written an entire novel on the subject and no one is going to read it

@EggzOvrEZ said:
Furthermore, SINCE the servers I mentioned are all private servers and Lazy isn't banned from them, his Alpha experience isn't being tarnished in the slightest.

You seem to misunderstand his ban. He is barred from all VAC enabled servers, official or otherwise. Those private servers want to run VAC. And some of them might want Lazy, too.

@EggzOvrEZ said:
I'm fairly certain if there were any official servers, it would have happened there.

Irrelevent. Predicting that he will break the rules is not a cause for ban.

@EggzOvrEZ said:
there's no where else to go unless you want to play bots

Ask the private server owners to ban him; if the community wants him gone so much they'll comply or people will just play on someone else's server who has banned him.

@EggzOvrEZ said:
Who's going to spend all their time playing bots.

Lazy is, according to Marox

@EggzOvrEZ said:
the devs don't want this limited experience to be an overall negative experience for any newer people that just decide to try out Mordhau.
@EggzOvrEZ said:
it's still in alpha and it's the first experience a lot of people are going to have with the game.

Crush has already said that the alpha's player base is tiny. There aren't many newcomers at all. Furthermore, you're saying that Triternion should just take command of peoples' servers because nobody wants to play on the shitty official servers? Are you afraid the Mordhau community isn't good enough? Can they at least establish rules that apply to everyone?

@EggzOvrEZ said:
ex-chivalry players

This is business as usual for chiv vets.

@EggzOvrEZ said:
Hell, I had alpha access for over a year now that it's been available, and I didn't pick it back up until after the latest patch, and Lazy was one of the first things I had to be reminded existed as soon as I came back in and was trying to stream the game for publicity and learn to play.
@EggzOvrEZ said:
people will be making youtube content, streaming, etc.

Interesting that you included this detail. To be clear, you want a ban list enforced on private servers to improve your stream? Is that what this is really about?

@EggzOvrEZ said:
I guarantee these pro-lazy arguments aren't swaying anyone in the slightest.

Won't stop me from trying

@EggzOvrEZ said:
Common fucking sense.

This isn't good enough. It's harder to have faith in common sense than to follow clear guidelines, especially with a precedent of unjustified permanent bans. Besides, is it not common sense that Triternion isn't responsible for what happens on a private server?

@EggzOvrEZ said:
I also don't go around trying to ruin everyones experience in the game and try and make them have a bad time and constantly instigate and get a rise out of people.

Uncommon? Unexpected? Permanent ban worthy?

@EggzOvrEZ said:
I certainly wouldn't go speak to devs in a negative fashion

You agree this is a bannable offense? To insult devs on a private server?

@EggzOvrEZ said:
Why add to the possibility of more negative publicity for the game so that people will see that type of shit and get turned off by it?

Very well put. I'm glad to hear you're going to turn chat off while streaming in private servers. I respect your choice to not show the public what the community is like.

@EggzOvrEZ said:
It doesn't affect me really.

Precisely why he should be able to play in private servers that choose to let him.

@EggzOvrEZ said:
This could be a temporary time-out for Lazy until other measures are in place like votekicks, OR it could be that Lazy is actually permanently banned from Official Mordhau servers for good.

The latter and more if crush has his way with it.

@EggzOvrEZ said:
If an appeal process is created as well,

This forum thread, which Lazy cannot access, is the only appeal process they'll allow. He opened a thread earlier to contest the ban but it was closed without debate. I guess his alt was banned too because he hasn't posted here.

@ÐMontyleGueuxI said:
I would lock that thread if I were you, nothing good has came out of it in the last two pages...

We're not done here. Don't let the thread being derailed stop what we're here to discuss.

Make female characters like the archer limit in Chiv. Someone on your team already decided to use a female character? Ouch maybe next round.
How about we make it really historically accurate and force 3/4 of the players to spawn in as archers.

Lots of people want to use female characters, including the devs.

threatening to DDOS Mordhau servers.

This was a joke, much like your informing Lazy of his upcoming ban.
"don't worry Lazy, you will be deleted soon"
You're taking liberties and interpreting anything he said as threats.

@Jax said:
We're not going to be hopping in your private server and VAC-banning people for saying mean words, like I was saying earlier - this individual was a problem on not only a single server, but the entire game.

Except the "entire game" in respect to the person's offenses is private servers, so yes, you are hopping into private servers and VAC-banning people for saying mean words.

@Jax said:
When someone's behavior extends to every active server (private or not)

The person in question was never on official servers.

@crushed said:
We're not going to sit idly by and let a single person actively try to ruin the experience for the rest of the players of Mordhau.

This is a biased mischaracterization of the person in question, but more importantly it's not a reason to permanently ban people from VAC enabled private servers.

@Jax said:
... we reserve the right to deal with people that are being harmful to the community.

OK great, how about announcing that BEFORE giving a permanent ban, at LEAST to the person in question.

@crush said:
... there are many reasons why he got banned, ...

If you have information about the person breaking a rule, please share it.

@Jax said:
If you're friends with toxic, racist individuals and want to play Mordhau with them, go ahead. Host a server, password lock it and disable the global banlist.

Saying toxic and racist things is both common and not infringing on official boundaries set for in-game discussion.
Forcing us to password lock our servers is hardly different from making impossible at all. Nobody will ever do this. Having open servers for casual play is an important part of melee slasher culture.

If you force people to run servers without VAC just so they can circumvent your stupid bans, everyone who joins that server will blame Triternion, not the person in question, for the hackers they have to deal with.

This is such push-under-the-rug response for a flippant, forcible, total removal of a customer and community member.

What if I want Lazy on my server, but I still want VAC so that people that used 3rd party software to modify their game can't join?

In the words of Crush, "Not my problem."

haha no

Ah yes, because Crush throwing a "Community Manager" badge at you is a basis for deciding what the community as a whole is thinking.

@Jax said:

See above. Having the legal right to do something isn't the same as having the moral right. For all that's been said about common sense, you'd think those in the position of authority could be expected to uphold decent practices.

Marox: "In the end, I was the one that pushed the button after deciding that enough is enough, and he can play with bots which, realistically, are the only pseudo-people on Earth that won't mind his behavior."
TIL everyone supporting lazy isn't a person

As for the "VAC-disabled servers", that's a meaningless non-compromise.

I understand the dev team hates lazy, but this level of punishment is cruel, unreasonable, and prejudiced. Marox said many of the devs had him on their friends list because of his long-standing and respected place in the community. That should be a hint not only that there is a major faction in the community who supports Lazy, but also that Mordhau matters a lot to him.

The issue is not whether or not Triternion has the authority to eliminate lazy from the community, because as has been discussed they obviously do. The problem is their process in deciding and carrying out the ban, to which the consistent official reply is "We don't care, he's a shitter." Having this stance and expecting it to be respected is more ridiculous than anything Lazy's done.

As for peoples' general well being in public servers (let alone private servers among friends), a simple kick-vote system would suffice.

If you honestly think a ban for Lazy is necessary and would improve the atmosphere in official servers, establish official terms of use like any self-respecting developer. If Lazy is as incorrigible as you make him out to be, catching him breaking those terms would be incredibly simple and nobody would protest the ban.

Saying he "Should have seen it coming" is not at all befitting Triternion's position as a community moderator, especially considering the severity of punishment. Unrelated warnings are unrelated. As Lazy himself has pointed out, he was never given appropriate heads up on the extent Triternion meant to go despite Marox's reported deliberation on the ban.

It's just this kind of arbitrariness that causes people like Lazy to mock them.

As for you, GIRU, you can't even discuss this without calling us mongs. You've been toxic, inappropriate, and racist enough in the past that you don't really have a place to defend Triternion, even if they give you special treatment.

Why do you think Mordhau is just one of those games people would rather talk about than play on average? Well, Mordhau is a difficult game, okay, and when people are looking for entertainment, or maybe in general, they're not looking to be stressed out they're looking to talk about other people being stressed out and doing something maybe necessarily they couldn't do. And since Mordhau is a very visual game and an action game and has such a high skill ceiling and to be to an extent skill well, doesn't really have much of a skill floor, a lot of people, like if I was playing frontline not as many people would be talking about it because plenty of people can play frontline, there's no stress there they know how to do a frontline mission.

Backstabs is a terrible idea. Attacking from the back is already a free hit; I don't see how it should make a difference in damage, especially for daggers exclusively.
I will say that late Medieval daggers could use a few more inches of length.
