Metagaming
« on: May 31, 2016, 03:16:46 PM »
          Hello, I'm quite new to this server, however I would like to regard one of my negative experiences in a complaint, as I was most disatisfied with the event. Me and my friends enjoy the server very much and for the most part, the administrative team has helped me and my company a numeral of times and have been very friendly and fun to play with. However, recently I was kicked off the server due to an argument between me and an admin. I'm not sure who it was, or if it was intentional, but the admin metagamed and RDM'd during session. I  was walking Down by the police station as a spy and was planning on changing shortly to something different. Suddenly I was shot multiple times by an automatic shotgun (which is extremely overpowered in m9k) and died, the attacker saying something along the lines of "Try to steal my shit bitch!? Fuck outta here with the pick pocketing!" I was quite confused and said in OOC that I had not pick-pocketed him at all, he responded with something like "Your a spy, and you have a pickpocket swep" and I'm not saying he was lying (there were a lot of thieves on) but I didn't do it! Even if I did do it, and he had not of seen me, it would be metagaming and failrp if he simply assumed it was me because of my job title on the menu. I called him out and he said I was a dumbass, I was called for another admin perhaps, but nobody came, I proceeded to let my temper get the best of me and called him an arguably offensive term in OOC. I was then kicked from the server and in my state of being so fueled with anger- went to play something else.

I don't want any sort of punishment for the admins as I have not the slightest clue who it was, I can't remember. But I would appreciate it if the staff be aware what meta-gaming is and that attacking someone just because they think someone did something, is hypocrytical to their job as an enforcer of the rules.

I know that I'm not supposed to post things like this here, however since I have real no evidence (unless you have logs to show who was kicked), I thought it would be appropriate to place it here, where someone could possibly notice it. I'm not that mad about it anymore tbh.

I don't really know about this specific situation. I also know I'm not maybe as active as some other staff members, but from the times that I have been on with other staff, I see some of them only looking out for themselves and not responding to calls for admin. I also see them do some questionable things imo (can't think of any specific thing atm).
