Default Re: %n bug needs to be fixed

^^ That argument was brought up many times, but they still shut it down, because they want to enforce like mad. I know it just kicks players, but it still ruins the experience. Doesnt ****ing matter anyway, what the ISP says, goes. So, if there shutting down service for it, simple, don't do it

Ha ha ISP wouldn't shut down service for it. They'd lose money and customers. Who's ganna wanna go with an ISP that shuts down their customers for stuff? No no, I doubt most any ISP will shut down a customer cause of this. Show me a link or a source before I buy it

I've played several rounds since then & haven't used it. Might just setup a dedicated srv to test it out. Think its highly improbable though for an ISP to shutdown your service purely because you crashed someone game server though.

no kidding, isp provider will not remove a customer because your game crashed due to a game bug that crashes the client and not the server.

How do you know it "HAS" happened? You are just saying that to prevent people from doing it. Which this entire thread is already meant to do
