We really need the ability to vote people off our team. It's far too easy for one guy to come in and ruin the entire game by reclaiming all of our buildings and/or building superfluous walls purely for the purpose of using up our allotted structures. With all the griefers in games these days, something has to be done to keep them from doing it with impunity.

Solution: Try to let him know that he's wasting time - that is if he's a new player and genuinely doesn't know any better

or you could find out who's hosting the match and ask them to kick?

Host kicks aren't going to cut it for griefers. It doesn't account for the host being on the opposing team, and benefitting from somebody on my team destroying all our structures, nor does it account for the griefer himself being the host. And I'm not talking about my opinion of new player's building skills, I'm talking about peopl actively ruining the game for everybody else. Reclaiming all your teams structures leaving you defenseless, or running off to some hidden corner of the map to drop 32 walls and stop the team from building anything.

Do we really need a "kick function"!!!

You might want this for the best of reasons but it'll soon be used in the wrong way ....

I normally just leave a match if I find a griefer reclaiming my buildings or always stealing my vehicles etc. Don't want to waste my time.

Normally I agree that leaving is the easiest option, but since I've been playing this beta I've twice had somebody literally follow me and a friend from game to game, and even send messages laughing at us trying to evade him.

You must have that person on your friend list. Remove him and you shouldn't have that problem.

Of course I don't have him as a friend. I even blocked him after the first time he followed us.

Then there was no chance he could have followed you into so many games... unless he lives nect door and was peaking through your window.

I hate to be the one to disillusion you, but I don't even have neighbors, and he did indeed follow us through enough games to make us quit playing Starhawk and go play Battlefield 3 instead. I really don't understand why everybody is so insistent on blaming me for the problem, instead of addressing the idea. The problem exists in nearly every shooter I've played. Having it in SOCOM was really nice, especially when people started finding ways to glitch and/or hack the game to run fast, or walk on air, and the like.

Nobody is trying to blame you.

 

Since there is no way to track which game somebody that is not on your friends list is in people have assumed that they must be on your friends list.

 

They are just trying to find a solution to your problem.

I understand your pain, but giving people the option to kick and ban others isn't a good solution at all. I've been banned from many servers in Warhawk. And for what? For playing the game the right way!! A lot of hosts like to rape and win, but don't like to be on the receiving end of it. 

 

I suggest, that LBI puts in a reclaiming limit of like 5 structures per game. It'll be hard to abuse it this way. 

Even better would be indestructible vehicles structures in the homebase, plus the the unability to build other ones there. You wouldn't waste your reclaims on stuff in your homebase and could properly use it in the field.

 

I'd just really HATE to see the ban option again. I know, that you want it from a position of a legit player, but it's impossible to see, who's legit, or not and I'm sick of getting banned from games, only because I left the official servers for a more fresh and variable experience in player ranked servers.

Now is that 5 reclaims per player or the whole team during a game?

As I reclaimed 6 walls in a game today!!!!!

A player had made a ring round the flag but had the ladders all on the inside!!!!

Another game I had to reclaim 2 sentry turrets as there was shed loads of the damn things the 1st reclaim made a wall blocking off a gap the 2nd a Jet pack dispencer which then got me the supplier points as 10 ppl had grabbed jetpacks....
