stephimo? the only competent people working for rgl are on the anticheat team, and theyre HILARIOUSLY overworked, to the point where theyre barely better than esea in that regard. .
This is probably going to be the only time I agree with you steph. AC (esp now) has people I'd actually trust with AC work but the pure volume of reports + these volunteers actually having a life and jobs leaves it less than optimal for a full time effort like this.
stephsigafoo doesn't care, i harassed him for six months to...
However, I'm so sick of you acting like you were some sort of godsend to RGL who offered to do so much and acting as if things never changed since you were kicked. You were not some saving grace for RGL, working hard and putting in 110%. You were a ticking time bomb that multiple people desperately tried to defuse until it literally exploded in sigafoo and exa's faces and you had to be removed for your actions. You also weren't
stephbooted off after pug banning one too many people who called me a tranny in voice chat because apparently i needed to go through someone to do that? despite other admins/mods not being able to? what? .
So let's go through why your staff permissions were slowly stripped away until the few human staff members at the time were begging and writing formal appeals to have you removed from RGL entirely. I don't remember the timeline 100%, so stuff probably isn't in order.
During the whole nursey broking etc pedophile thread, you made multiple attempts to reach out and message everyone and anyone who was possibly involved on behalf of rgl in a disgusting breach of privacy. No concern for who you were reaching out to regarding an extremely serious and sensitive topic. You continually pried at possible victims/individuals who wanted nothing to do with the situation at all. How you were not removed over this alone, I have no fucking clue.
You left dozens of AC cases unfinished while rushing to ban others off of singular logs or demos alone. Not to mention you were warned multiple times to stop calling out players/talking about suspicious players, who were reported and actively being investigated by AC.
Your posts on forums like tftv or in discords like the rgl discord as an rgl staff members ranged from inane, to straight up fucking bullying, to sharing information regarding anti-cheat or other RGL bans. You are probably one of the biggest reasons (definitely not the only one either) why admins often don't comment on issues. They don't want to wind up being the next PR nightmare like you constantly were.
In multiple projects inside of RGL you tried to plaster your name on everything and take credit that wasn't yours. You credited yourself on the RGL Updater Plugin without the original creator's knowledge or consent while barely actually updating or fixing anything inside of it. When Ashville had the nobuild discussion in the highlander scene you took a copy of a nobuild ashville that a player made, did some "bug fixes and edits" and slapped your name on it. You claimed the original creator would get some credit. Not only did they not, but when another staff member actually looked at your map compared to the original, you barely changed anything and didn't actually improve/the map. Taking credit for more things you didn't actually contribute to.
Your moderation inside of the RGL discord (both through pugs and through chat moderation) was atrocious. Who the fuck puts an 8 hour slowmode on the general chat of a league discord because you couldn't handle the job? Me and other staff members were begging you to not put Another Fucking 8 Hour Slowmode on the general chat because we knew it was going to blow up. You did it anyway. In pugs you banned people for calling you slurs. Gold star good for you, congrats on doing something well for once. Then you banned them for focusing you in pugs? You also banned them for trolling and running "throw weapons" while running sticky jumper yourself?
Enough ripping into you though, RGL has/had staff who care a whole damn lot about the game. Problem is that the people who would be/are good enough to do it shouldn't be and aren't doing it because they can do less work for more gain anywhere else. Their internal organization can still be a mess sometimes, but is it anywhere as bad as steph described, absolutely not.
TLDR Steph's removal was absolutely warranted and I'm shocked it didn't happen sooner. RGL is nowhere as bad as she left it but definitely not perfect.
