Immature admins on Counter-Strike

I think I got banned from a lot of Counter-Strike servers earlier today. Why?

I was itching for some fy_iceworld2 (a map with no real purpose except to kill each other). I found one with a small number of players, but ended up going 1-on-1 with some other guy. I killed him 4 times in a row. Not sure what the rules were, but that was it. I didn’t get any error message, Counter-Strike just “ended” on me. No warning, and he didn’t chat with me.

To be honest, I’m not even that good. I guess I picked the wrong guy to kill 4 times in a row. He probably was an admin. (They should do background checks on those guys.)

I’m in good standing on the VAC server. I asked for help at Steam-powered Support.

Ridiculous. It’s amazing that so many people continue to play Counter-Strike, compared to all the other Steam games available.

Thoughts? Do you agree? Am I a geeky dork for wanting to play this game again? Lemme hear ya!

Update: I got a reply 16 hours later and was directed to an FAQ article titled “Admin Slowhacking.” That did the trick. Thanks JeffH!

  1. Yeah some servers…suck especially on “fun servers” with the custom maps the admins are typically between 10-17 and sound like lil girls
