Yesterday i was raiding someone named Lifestomper. Had some friends helping, i hate a plan on soft side foundations, and it takes me hours to accomplish. I enlist the help of friend swho come in at the tail end. I dont realize its some you tuber until someone tells me. One guy who is a small time streamer who has been stream sniper for weeks on end last wipe by two different guys who would camp doors and walls only when he was on was excited to be a part of this. He actually popped on the guys stream and was like dude its this guy, this is going to be Epic, i am more excited to do this, we even get to see his reaction when the moment occurs.
Now, We got countered at the end, Because NO ONE stream sniped. Stream sniping is actively watching someone in hopes to see exactly what they are doing. Its liek the word "Toxic" Everyone uses it as some broad term But i digress. The point of this post is to have 1 thing explained to me by Tyrone or some admin, Not someone with 2 cents or some other BS, because i am truly confused after last wipe getting told we never had enough proof to prove a guy was sniping some poor guy with 6 viewers, 3 of winch were sniping him to see what door in a massive 10 gate compound someone was coming out of....
Rule 6 Says the burden of proof is on the Streamer
Rule 6 States the Streamer must enact all the protections to avoid being Stream Sniped
Rule 6 Dictates that the Streamer must ask for the action to be taken.
Rule 6 states that if you want you can take action because its shitty to do.
I get the last part. Especially since after re watching everything, we assumed all the loot floated to the top, So IF someone was Stream sniping, We would have known only bodies were up top and taken loot and run. We would have known when people came down after us. I also done get how Tyrone just runs rough shot, tells people to F off and laugh about it when supposed the Streamer himself encouraged people to watch his stream, just turn it off when you engage him. He said to do exactly that in game chats. HE also Does not protect himself AT ALL, by using any of the anti stream sniping methods.
We did not seek this person out. He build a base with Exposed soft side foundations and twig near enough to a base i had access to to make a play, I made a play, and when the play is made, and we actually lost, everything in the end and got rolled over on, And did not stream snipe him, because again, after re watching his stream, would have been easy to camp a depot base and do a lot of other things that never happened because i said not to snipe the stream its very awkward.
I am writing this because I want clarification. IF its "we are admins F off" Thats fine, I need to know if i further encourage people to play on the server and buy Vips for friends. It seems very... Disingenuous to not even speak to one side. But if that is the case then so Be it.
And considering i have been told before to F off when i was raided by another streamer after he had someone pushed through in a que when a guy who who bagged in to help defend was held in the que, would be the 2nd time that with out much explanation i am just told to screw off it is what it is.
I guess in the End, I confronted the streamer in his stream and he said " Chat lets get something straight, I never asked ANYONE to ban anyone" But if the burden of proof is on the streamer, And the streamer does not ask for, and in fact encourages everyone to watch his stream, Just not while your in confrontation with him, How are we suppose to play with said streamer? He told other people i play with " Watch the stream, just turn it off if we engage or when we do."
I fully expect Tyrone to lock this, or tell me to F off after previous interactions and lack of discussion but i would like a genuinely serious discussion of this. Or at least update your Rule 6 to clarify stream sniping.
Also, if i do a problem and i do run across the other side of the time where i cause some sort of infraction, IS it normal, for the Admin who took action against me, to then deny my appeal when he already has made his or her judgement the first time? Shouldn't someone else make a call on that?
Oh and Lastly, Is it normal for Admins to come into Games and make sure the Streamer is doing ok? and checking on his well being?
