Dino-ErectusThis whole situation is silly... I don't think Brightly joins lobbies to purely say "Fuck you team get trolled xDDDDDDDD" If Brightly is being that much of a nuisance on your team, get your four people to rep him to kick him, its really simple. To cry and ddos a whole site over 1 person is kind of a joke, I don't understand why you have nothing better to do than do that, but yes tf2center does need to get some ddos protection.

That's exactly what I did, and guess what... I got reported by Brightly, not a surprise at all.

MogadishuStarlooks like our little scrublord got bored or gave upBrightlyBoyI'll try to get home from work before 9:00pm Central to answer any other questions.

I didn't get bored. I'm back around when I said I would be. This is kinda fun actually. Let's get started:

I noticed there was some suspicion about me replying to this thread with alts. It's mostly people who've came to me like "Brightly what is going on in this thread; don't see where the hate is coming from" and me being like "Sign in through steam and toss in your perspective of playing with me then." I don't tell people what to say, it all genuinely comes from them. As you can see, all the accounts bought games and have lobbies played in Center. It would have to be some pretty elaborate ruse. If something looks fishy about another account, feel free to bring it up.

saamon the site for a day and already +fragging himself

Can confirm. I upboat to keep the karma flowing. I don't feel like arguing about this point tbh. Doesn't seem important.

Let's take a look at the unban request one of the other offenders made: http://forums.tf2center.com/topic/7139-trick-httpsteamcommunitycomprofiles76561198062483845/

It's confusing to say the least. He talks about "slowing down" the game which steams strange for viaduct. By nature of KOTH maps, either the time goes down for one team, or it goes down for another. I suppose I could have taken control of mid and just told me team to not cap, not that's just not the case.

"It did not promote a friendly competitive environment, and did not benefit his teammates."
My teammates and I were friendly. They seemed nice from what I remember. Trick wouldn't know because he was on the other team. I suppose I could have been flooding all chat with cyber_bullying but that's just not my style. Trick later notes that I'm a nice guy. I also don't think he gets to decide what benefits my team. If my team wasn't happy, they would have repped me.

About me recording every game: I was told to do so by the admins to cover my ass. If I solely tried to catch other people to ban, I would use an external recording software to hide it from everyone. I feel people deserve to know if they're being recorded. Which is more than what's required. People stream and record for whatever reason all the time and nobody's the wiser. It's also worth noting TF2C is public to some degree.

The example that was brought up in the unban request was on a KOTH map. The only way to speed up KOTH is for one team to just roll the other. Close KOTH games by nature have to be longer. Maybe I did a poor job explaining that, idk.

The more we express our anger in this post, the more Brightly succeeds. It's pretty obvious that he wants to see others be mad (it's called trolling). It's why he created a TFTV account and it's why he plays lobbies the way he does. If you are a member of TFTV you are probably smart enough to figure this guy out. Don't feed the troll. <3

Tino_Go idea but wont work at all considering unless the DDoSer is totally brain dead he will be routing through a proxy so you have no idea who the fuck it is anyways....

You are assuming this individual has used a proxy or VPN 100% of the times he has logged into TF2C and tf.tv. More then likely there will be some IP address correlation between his account where he claimed to DDOS TF2C, and his primary account. For example, say he logged in with a VPN running on his remote VPS to make his posts on tf.tv about the DDOS. But a couple months ago when he DDOS'ed some other site or server, he checked his main tf.tv account while still being singed into his personal VPN. Then you have a direct IP address match between the two accounts, and you can assume with a high degree of certainty that they are the same people. If he's really smart and never slipped up and used a non-masked IP and always used anonymous proxy's/VPN's then its possible that his identity could still be unknown, at least to tf.tv and TF2C.

Also, you gotta remember that in a gaming community there is almost no way he could be using a VPN/proxy all the time (due to latency issues with FPS games with increased ping). So the likelihood of a slip-up of using the same IP's for his main and alt account at one point in time is high.

Either way though, passing on the information to IC3 if this clown doesn't stop doing what he is doing couldn't hurt anything. Also, I'm sure steam has much more sophisticated methods to link one account to another. So if someone in authority from IC3 reached out to valve, i'm pretty darn sure they'd be able to connect him to his main account, then that would more than likely have his billing details tied to that account, drawing a direct connection to the clown behind these criminal DDOS attacks.

Controversial? Ok. We didn't need a response, you're an open book. You're going to try to justify your actions through TF2Center politics (which really don't make any logical sense from anyone who understands this game) and poke a little fun and make some people angry. We understand that your trolling (and I am glad you know what it is!) fulfills you. (and you do it a lot, 2400 lobbies and 400+ hours every two weeks, that must be making up for something else in your sad little life!) It's pretty obvious because nobody in the community can justify that you have ever actually attempted to play competitive TF2 correctly. Sure there is no "correct" way to play TF2, but I'm pretty sure Engie to middle isn't correct. Yes, "sandbagging" and not trying is fun, hell that's the only real reason I'm playing 6's this season, but you have based your entire career in our game by making others angry and ruining games with your shenanigans, I hope nobody believes you have genuine intentions of playing with integrity.

I hope whatever made you like this goes away, the cool thing about human nature is that helping others and not being an asshole pays off in the long run, and it feels good! I'm not angry with you, but I wonder about your goal and motives.

P.S I do like sports! How did you know?

This so much. Let's be honest here, going engineer at all in a 6v6 for a long amount of time is not going to do so well.The TF2C admins/mods that are saying it's allowed and that "the meta is flexible" is being ridiculous. After a few years of playing and observing TF2, I wouldn't say the meta is flexible, sure some things have changed, maybe 1-3 things each time, but not as flexible as going Engineer full time, even if you did go against Minisentry+etc. engineer. Still after so long we use 2 scout, 2 solly, 1 demo, and 1 med for so long and for a good reason. Although the unlocks we use on them have changed a bit and our role a bit, but changing to Engineer? Not good enough considering soldiers+demo can deal with their buildings easily. Pyro would've probably been a better choice than Engineer, but regardless the meta is not as flexible for full time engineer.

I feel the recent buffs to both the jag and the engie help the class become both more viable and fast-paced. And it meshes well with the push and pull of 6's if you know what to do.
