    People abusive toward team killers are also kicked.

    The new version patch includes a mod which servers will auto-kick team killers after a few TK's.

    Also just play online until you find a server that is well run by a fair mod. There's hundreds and hundreds of little booger picking kiddies out there who have some "god complex" about running their own server, letting things get out of hand, arguing with people who connect. It gets frustrating until you find a well run and managed server that is frequently policed by "fair admins".

    I got tired of looking for one, so we started one ourselves!
    So get the full version, download all the danged patches (yeah, ya need 3 patches...and they're pretty big), and hop on in and enjoy the fun.

    I agree with everyone here, Its a great game. I used to have that same problem when I first started playing BF. On servers without admins the big thing to do is kill the guy running for the vehicle you want so that you can get the vehicle. This used to drive me insane, but on the SG server people have respect for each other and play as a team.

    Get the game... You won't regret it!

    lol,i was just on a server and this one guy kept killin everyone on the carrier tryin to get a plane or as they were taking off.I mentioned it and nothin was done.I tk'ed his ass and it felt GOOD.err,then they kicked ME!-omg-heh

    No doubt ,some stuffy servers out there that allow some really heavy team stacking,allow total uncaptureable base stomping,and act like the devil,lol

    After a bit,u willfind some decent servers.Heck,i think the graphic beauty is worth it alone to get this game

    edith,still common especially pilots will maim or kill to get a plane-jeesh

    Did the same last night and was kicked last night with admins in game. Ah well.

    If I know I was TK'ed on purpose, I'll spend the rest of the game killing that person.

    jus6t because there's an admin playin doesn;t mean that all kicks are done by them. the server auto-kicks TKers with a certain amount of TKs. the server kicks a lot more than admins do.... otherwise we would spend all our time watching and kicking. come to think of it, i have NEVER kicked a SG member..... never even had to tell them to "knock it off" aside from when sometimes folks get carried away with the potty-mouth.... and even then, i don;t stress over it.


    to be frank, i would rather just play than try and play god (yes, sometimes i just watch, but only on maps i don't like)..... playing god it too repetitive and boring. i think the other admins are the same way.

    Faust, there was one time we all joined the blue team and goofed around and killed eachother. The server never kicked any of us.

    I realize there isn't much that can be done about it. No biggy. Didn't mean to sound like I was criticizing.

    i know, guys... no worries. was just stating whats what. SG players, YoSC and myself included have been kicked by the server at one time or another.

    BFRM is pretty buggy (from my experience, it;s the client side, or "BFRM" thats buggy. BFSM does seem to do its job). i've seen folks with -6 or -8 scores and they weren't kicked by the server. and on the other hand, i see folks get kicked with less than that (as far as a negative score.... maybe they had 4 TKs, but enough kills to keep their score from being negative).


    at any rate... i am just saying... don;t think the admins are doing all the kicking. i would bet the server kicks between 4x and 10x as many folks as admins do. we're at the mercy of a buggy adminning interface...... i just got my server back up today, and i will be trying another adminning app out. hopefully it;ll work better that what we use (and what 95% of all DC server admins use). the buggyness could also hinge on the chat lag. since chat and the console are integral, maybe other console commande are also affected.....
