Is there a way to limit TOP RANKS on a server?

Post by TurboTech » 07 Aug 2014, 17:31

Hello all,

I know this may sound a bit strange however with the mass influx of "NEW PLAYERS" to the game I was wondering if there is a way to limit the Maximum Rank a player can have before they are not allowed on a server...

The reason I ask this is it would appear that if you slap a title tag on your server such as (BEGINNER) the top players in all of TM2 appear out of thin air and haunt the servers till they blow up lmao... really?

With the way the match maker system functions it is displayed quite clearly the average users level that is in the room now. Someone who just started playing TM2 will look at a (BEGINNER LEVEL) room, see RED arrow and not enter. On the other side of the coin, new players like to feel as if they are accomplishing something however if the room is half full of (TOP OF THE LADDER EXPERTS) they don't stand a chance in hell of ever getting near the podium.

I realize we can limit (new players from entering a higher skill level server by simply bumping up the ladder requirements, but is there a way to do the opposite to keep some of these "Top shelf expert level drivers" from entering a server as I have plenty of (Intermediate to Advance level servers) up and running.

In short, a high ranking player comes to a beginners level server "intended for new drivers" attempts to join and is met with a message such as "We are sorry, you rank to high on the TM ladder go find a server with other players with similar skill levels" lmao....... wow.

At a minimum, now I know how to get some of the best drivers in the world to come to a server just post *BEGINNER* somewhere on the server name........ sigh

Currently running Current version of the dedi as well as Xaseco2...

Thx in advance ;)

Go to dedicated_cfg.txt and after

Code: Select all

<ladder_mode>forced</ladder_mode>
add

Code: Select all

<ladder_serverlimit_max>10000</ladder_serverlimit_max>
It means, only players with less than 10k LP can join.
My Gamemodes:
MP4 - Countdown, Firefight
MP3 - Reduction, Overload, Flashpoint, Territory, SM Race, Escape
MP2 - Search & Destroy, Oscillation, Instagib

No, that means that players above 10000 cant get LP, but they can play.
