    An example I see regularly is the sharp shooter double agent assistant with the caps ID that raids the armory playing king of the station while doing research and using traitor gear like he had done so forever as a non antag of course.
    Some people are just naturally gifted I guess.

    It sounds like the server has gone the way of Hippie Station. Griefer, meta/powergaming central.

    The metashield is important to conversion antags actually being viable. My vote would be no on this if I could vote, but it seems someone necroposted anyways

    I`d say it`s not Hippie level when mods are online. You can have a nice round then.
    When no mods are online however people think the rules don`t apply at all. There is a small group of people who use this time to powergame/grief in a toxic and repetitive way I haven`t seen on Hippie.

    I see. Skimming the forums and reading the reform post by Hardy, what is actually going on? Has the playerbase crashed? What's the numbers at peak times?

    This thread is ancient, we actually have some metashield guidelines you can read up on the rules.

    that's how you get banned, admins aren't stupid they'll question how you found you're dead friend in the end of space suddenly or you instantly knew who killed them and what weapons they had, or if you're simple how you knew who they killed or where they are.

    If that's the attitude you have I might as well feed you a ban.

    This was already applied months ago with the metashield table I put in the rules. If you have problems with the meta rules then make a new thread to discuss it. Also this thread is locked, please treat it as a locked thread.
