Giving out smurf names

Postby Oreo » Mar 30th, 2005 at 7:42 pm

Do not give out smurf names when you are in the pub. The person trying to smurf obviously doesn't want to communicate or be bothered. Whether that person is a regular, somebody having a bad day, or an admin trying to be incognito, you make yourself an enemy by giving out their alias. Don't fucking do it. I will personally add you to my shitlist if you get on my bad side.

Due to actions done today, Bunnybot has been disabled until further notice. Shit has to stop somewhere.

I agree completely with Oreo. You're not funny or cute calling people out by their name when they're playing under an assumed alias. Many of my smurfs are regular smurfs, as in, I use them frequently and I'm aware that a lot of you know them. I know that you know who I am, and you don't get a cookie for outing me.

Sometimes I like to have a little peace and quiet when I play, and not have people bugging me every five seconds about some shit. It's one thing if I'm fucking around with you and calling attention to myself for fun, but quite another when I'm obviously keeping to myself. I've had several instances this week where I've been trying to be incognito to spectate or observe the behavior of some individual and someone starts going "Hey Suck.! How's it going Suck.? Hey guys, you know that's Suck.? You know, the ADMIN, Suck.! What's going on Suck.? What're you doing Suck.?"

Cut that shit out or violate you wearing a sandpaper condom.


Edit: I'd like to add that this does not apply only to admins. It's bullshit to do this to anyone. There's a smurfing sub-culture, and you're all smart enough to find ways to say "hi" without screaming the person's name over and over like fucking asshats. Shit, maybe you could just say "hi" and instead of trying to make yourself feel cool, have the balls to know that the person knows that you know whow they are and that you don't have to hump their leg to make yourself feel important. I understand completely why Oreo made this post. What I saw today was fucking ridiculous, completely unacceptable out of a bunch of regs. There are a few of you who need a swift kick in the balls.

I agree with oreo's statement - quit callin' out smurfs, especially if it's specifically to harass them. Just leave 'em alone.

uhm, if you want to smurf then come up with a name that no one knows you by, then you won't have to worry about being given away.

see, it's easy, don't want to be recognized then don't use a name that anyone will recognize.

if you're using a name that people recognize, don't fucking cry about it when they call you out.

Doesnt work exactly that way PUPPY - all ya have to do is do a search via steamid in psychostats and you can find every smurfed name anybody has ever used.

The main point is that if someone wants to play anonymously, they should be able to without being griefed. If/when Mani adds an /ignore cmd to player chat, this wont be such a big deal. But for now... cmon folks. Grow up.

I have to side with Puppy on this one - make up a new name if it is hat important to you, spend the 10-15 seconds to think up a new name - it will do your brain some good to exercise it.

This thread is a complete waste of space IMHO

I've thought of good names EML. You don't understand. People have my fuckin steamid memorized or they check stats the instant I start doing well, then they feel good about telling everyone who I am and start talking shit.

Look at these names and tell me you'd be able to tell it's me (and I wasn't talking on the mic, or in chat):

Erpel
G-Money[$$$]
Version 4
(Trixi)-Truebly
Jopp
#JON#TRAN#
Jack the Tripper
$igh
Erpel-ttt
(Jessica)-#numbers#
Rabbit
$
Sleepy`
Pound#
$t. Jess
Alni
[$t]Judith.
LT^Jon-Mayflower

That's not the point EML, people that have been ingame when it happens will understand.

Too bad thinking up a new name won't change the fact that your listed steamid name remains constant. Player list exposes all.

I have a couple of guys who tell me when they think someone is hacking. I watch but seldom act unless it is blatantly obvious. Many times they think Oreo is hacking when he is smurfing so I tell them, no that it is Oreo and he isn't hacking. I also check steam id's to see who people are via the HF stats tracking. Many of my guys do this now before they say anything to me or anyone else about someone hacking.

Altho I do not see the point in smurfing, I will respect your wishes.

When people play under the same name every time they are on the server, it is far easier for an admin to do their job. You don't have to ghost someone that is flat owning to make sure they aren't hacking or whatever. I have prob ghosted 30 times in the last month only to find out the person I am ghosting is Oreo or someone else with a high degree of skill.

But, as I say. I will not give any one away for smurfing any more for any reason.

No, it's not mainly directed at you, although you were being a douche about it right before he left. :roll: Anyhow, two things. First, y'all would be suprised at the number of perpetual smurfers on HF. I hear crap about people hacking a lot who are just smurfing regs. Instead of responding that it's "so and so", I just say "nope, that's a reg, and they're not hacking." Second, Cat check the database post: that should help save you some time.

First off, what the hell happened? I guess I feel like something major ahppened and I'm curious about it. But then again, it's really none of my fucking business. I don't give out smurfs, but I have twice for you oreo, but it was a case of someone really thinking that you were hacking and about to go to irc and I'd rather not go through the process of that just for admins to find out it was you and no big deal...it's just easier sometimes to just say..."it's oreo, so stfu about hacking." Some people joke, but some are not quite regs and don't know any better. So I apologize for those 2 occasions. But yeah, giving out smurfs for no good reason is...well...not cool.

Betcha Bunnybot is hungry for some pickle by now.

Quoted for truth.

Y'all need to lighten the fuck up a little... :P

I can see the need to keep quiet about the admins as they have a job to do but anyone else... wtf do you have to hide? And if you really do want to go unnoticed, then as EML said, use a name that no one knows.

That said, I will respect peeps wishes to be annonymous but this all seems just a bit silly to me... ;)

Who the fuck cares Oreo? Quit being such a whiny bitch and make up a new name. There are infinite name possibilities.

And feel free to add me to your shit list. OH NOES!!!

I don't know what happened, seems retarded to come on a server you always play on and try to be incognito. Or even expect to be incognito. How many peeps play on HF that has Oreo's skill? Go to a different pub if you want to play and not be known. You can't have it both ways, either your a reg or your not.
Smurfing should be reserved for admins trying to catch a cheater imo.
Is there some release or satisfaction that comes with playing under a different name? Sounds like Oreo needs a girlfriend.

All the people saying "OMG make up another name!1!one!!1" are a bunch of douche bags, just so you know. doesn't matter if he makes a new name and uses it only once, there are 2 ways where you can instantly identify anybody in about 5 seconds. Maybe Oreo wants to play without constant interruptions and idiots who are constantly ragging on him. You don't know his intentions in smurfing, so it's not up to you to decide how important it is that he stays incognito.

Oreo takes more crap from everyone on the server just because his name is Oreo, most of the people don't even really know him, they just know that he wtfpwns them. Yesterday when he was using a smurf, he was acting exactly the same, but everyone was having fun, rather than being a dick to him. So maybe he's trying to evade the useless banter associated with his name.

How? And can it be done without coming on to HF and looking at the stats pages? Because that seems like a bunch of shit to go through just to figure out if a player is a "smurf".

Also, if he's using a name for the first time it won't show up "instantly" on stats.

If you don't want people to know who you are when you smurf, pick a new random name. fuck, just smash your forhead into the keyboard and use whatever it generates - but not come on and be a whiney little baby when someone calls you out on a name that you've smurfed with a few times ...
