Default %n bug needs to be fixed

Apparently if you change your name to %n and get killed or kill yourself it crashes the whole server. Everyone needs to report this to valve so they can get this fixed asap. Apparently people just have to connect to a server, type "name %n" in the console then type "kill" and the server crashes. This is really pissing me off that Valve has all these bugs in a "final" game. I think they shouldve left the Beta tag on a little longer.

LOL! God...that's so sad...and did anyone else read the title of this thead and think that "%n" was just an abreviation of "f-ing"?

And yeah, CS:S is still kinda buggy, does seem like they haven't quite hammered out all the bugs yet. I think they should've kept the Beta tag on the game until HL2 is released, and then offer a "release" version of it. Oh well, given the severity of the bug they'll probably fix it pretty fast.

Did they ever fix it so that people can't play online with warez copies of the game? Or are there still people running around who just downloaded and cracked the game?

Dont JuiceZ. MANY people have had their ISP shut down their internet/cable because of this. You can do an arin WHOIS and see who it is, send the log to the ISP, thell call it a DoS attack and shut it down. Has happened to MANY people. Do not recommend.

How? It's not killing the server is it? It's just crashing everyone in it. And not even crashing crashing. Just ending their game. Not hurting anything like a DoS attack
