  1. ApplicaChen For ModeraChen

    Hello there @RevoluChen! I don't know you in depth since I don't play at all anymore so my input on your application can not be considered objective at all. That being said, I see a lot of forum activity from you, which is a very positive trait. If you have a healthy attitude during your gaming then it's a green light from me. I repeat once more, that my opinion on your application has no significant value though, since I ain't that much active of a player anymore. If the rest of the staff that know you and have played with you can vouch for your personality then we could give you a shot for a moderators' position! Cheers!
  2. Ominus and `Bunek

    Thank you guys! I just returned from my holidays trip! I wish you all the best too!
  3. I sympathize with your disturbance @loose but if we started issuing "longterm bans" on everybody just cause of flaming of this caliber then we'd be out of clients. At the end of the day it's another typical flaming incident. @Binary just issue a regular ban as you see it fit or even extend it by a couple of hours if you decide that's the way to go.
  4. Application to be a moderator

    I can dig it! We could give this lad a chance!
  5. PLEASE REVIEW GAME FOR TONERI

    I can't download the replay either. @GriefCode any ideas on how to fix this please? @lbcex if you could please provide us with a copy of that replay then we could proceed with the reviewing.

    @GriefCode or this one too!
  8. BUNEK abusing admin powers

    Hello gentlemen! I've reviewed thoroughly the facts and I have to admit that @bunek was definitely wrong and harsh in his actions. It's an "admin abusing incident" - period. Now that being said, he also undid his wrongs by unbanning you shortly after the game ended. To whatever that means, it proves at least that he came to his senses. As of you now @JimmyyY, I'd very much like you to present me with some FACTS as of whether our admins have covered up cases of abusing by falsely standing up for one another. Trust me, if that ever drops to my attention there will be consequences. We have many past examples when we expelled staff members due to abusing their powers. I sympathize with you and your frustration but you can't just post with that attacking attitude and disrespect towards everyone. To wrap this up, you deserved neither the ban nor the mute during that incident - that's for certain. Despite what happened though I try to look at things as objectively as I possibly can and I speculate that most probably Bunek was pilling up much stress and he couldn't restrain himself during that moment. I know that this may sound like an ordinary excuse but I honestly believe that this is the reason behind his actions. It doesn't justify him by any means but at least it tells me that he's not a liability in our staff team. Everyone can have bad moments - I had them, you had them. Bunek has proven over time that he's a good staff member, being both active in the forums and objective in his judgements. As I always say though - and that's not for Bunek only - if you feel like you're not 100% in control of your temper then simply don't join the next game. Go drink some coffee, watch some youtube, do something else to calm yourself down and then come back. If most people had this self control then life would be so much better - not only bnet. @bunek Since you took responsibility for everything that happened that's enough for me. Please be more careful in the future and let all this be a lesson so that everyone becomes a little better. @JimmyyY I'm sorry, again, for your inconvenience and I sincerely hope that we can all come to a mutual understanding. That would be all ladies and gentlemen! Shake hands and enjoy your games in our services! Best regards, Ominus
  9. StarCraft Anthology

    Greetings to you all, fellow members of DV! Blizzard has decided to offer for free the all-time-classic strategy game "StarCraft" alongside the expansion/patch which offers some improvements to the game. The reason for this is the remastered 4K version of the game which will be launched later this year. Link to download the game: https://eu.battle.net/account/download?show=classic Link to the patch and details: https://starcraft.com/en-gb/articles/20674424 Regards, Ominus
  10. Minor Updates

    Very good job @GriefCode! Thank you for providing a constant stability to our great community!
  11. Did I miss anything?

    IP bans are the last resort ban. Also banning IP's is tricky. How many digits of the IP will you ban f.e.? The less digits you include the greater the ban range is. The more digits you ban the more specific the ban is but the greater the risk of a ban avoid is. Also there's always the risk of a VPN-IP redirection. Long story short, if we start banning bigger IP ranges - as a means to achieve more effective bans - we will end up losing more than we gain. Of course, this doesn't mean that we sit with our hands tied but - trust me - at the end of the day, if someone wants to ban avoid he can find the means to do so.
  12. Did I miss anything?

    Hello there @Leviosa! From what I can see we're talking here about two different accounts. Most probably the second one being a smurf account of the very same person. "the_baltazartv" account was indeed banned thanks to that older post of yours. This players' account is named "thebaltazartv" and if you pay closer attention you'll see that the difference is this bottom dash " _ ". However, thank you for this post and your follow-up notice. Further actions will be taken. @APO could you please look further into this case? Regards, Ominus
  13. Baltazar you filthy hacker, GIT GUD

    Just watched the replay and confirmed the accusation. It's really sad to see how childish can some people be. Just a few days ago that very same player approached me via p.m. in order to ask me whether his ban could be lifted. He also mentioned that he was unaware of the prohibition of using meepobot in our services and that he wouldn't do it again. Sadly, he confirms the general thumb rule: "Once a hacker - always a hacker". @APO could you please proceed with his permanent IP ban? That guy's a helpless case. Thanks for the report @Leviosa! Enjoy your games in our services and keep helping us whenever possible! Regards, Ominus
  14. Admin Application

    Hello @BEHINDU:) and thank's for taking your time to fill in this "application". First things first, this is neither a formal nor an acceptable application to join the Staff team of DV. You should fill in the proper information about yourself and your management qualifications. Take as an example staff applications filled in previously if that may help you. Furthermore, you cannot have high hopes of achieving anything if your first sentence in your staff application contains this much hateful content. Our role as staff members is not to kick people from games. That goes without question and is an extreme action measure only. So I'd recommend that you refrain from this way of thinking. My recommendation would be to ask yourself whether you believe that you're truly qualified for this role and if you can handle it. During the next irritating incident that you happen to come by in a game, just think of how you'd act. Take a deep breath, calm yourself and think clearly how would be the proper way to act. That's the first step to achievement - to get to know yourself better. For the time being, I'm sorry but I'll have to deny this staff application. I hope you don't misunderstand my explanation and my goodwill intentions. Best regards, Ominus
  15. Pot4win abusing

    @yourMOMisUGLY even if someone uploads a whole movie of dota gameplays it's still no proof that he doesn't play with maphack. Suggestions like these are - at least - unprofessional. Every older staff member around has both the experience and the patience to judge fairly and unbiazed every situation - for that I can assure you. And just to be clear, the reason why some people who are prime suspects for maphack are not banned sooner is simply because we wait patiently to gather more details in order to execute an - almost - 100% legit ban without having any griefs that we may have been wrong in the process. Buubs has been for a long time on our suspect list but nonetheless we are neither cops nor executioners here. We want everyone to enjoy playing in our services and we try to handle every situation with the outmost professionalism. Excuses like "I am pro in fortunetelling" - "I can upload a movie of my life to prove my innocence" - "I ain't a hacker - let's call a public meeting to support my thesis" are definitely not leading anywhere. I will repeat once more, please everybody refrain from making this post a public drama with senseless conflict and mass spam. I understand that many may want to have a saying and participate in this topic but please hold your horses and be patient spectators. That would be all Thank you
