Rules for Staging Rooms
« on: August 22, 2011, 12:16:19 AM »
Just to remind or educate players, we do have a rule on removing people from your staging room if you are a host.  It is not our aim to tell you who you can and can not play, but to be fair to the players and not waste their time.

Quote
12. The host is responsible for the proper authentication of all the players in the game. If a host fails to do so and a player claims he/she was impersonated, they are given the benefit of the doubt by rules. A host is not obliged to let all players joining a game to play, he may boot players without stating any reason. However, if a player was staging for 10 minutes or more booting the player may result in a suspension up to 7 days for the host. If a player was staging for 10 minutes or more it is considered unsportsmanlike and rude to boot the player, especially when no explanation is given.

I don't want to have to start suspending hosts for booting players after 10min has passed by, so please if you don't want a particular player in your game tell him right away so he can find another game.  Having players spend ages in your staging room only to be booted later on is not good sportsmanship and not what we are about here in the league.

Just a question for clarification.
If a player has entered your staging room and you are attempting to launch and they do not respond to your prompts to x in. I assume it is ok to boot if given a warning and no response. This is a continual problem for many of the games I host. People going afk when we are ready to launch.

In general, it is okay to boot AFK'ers, especially when everyone is X'ed in and you have another player that could join to take the AFK'ers slot.

I know game etiquette is slightly different between each game of Civ in the series, but I think this is pretty much universal.

Just incase this AFK person complains under the above rule that they were kicked after the 10min, take a screenshot of you asking them to X in, and them not responding.  But Zhenon is right, just like people should not be kicked out of a staging room for no reason, neither should players go AFK if they entered a staging room to play a game.  I would suggest giving them 5min or so, before you kick them just to be be reasonable.  This is all assuming they did not say something like, "brb have to answer the door". Common sense should prevail, but in the end if there is a conflict over what happened an Admin will make the call anyway.

I agree with most of what you said xcept giving an afk (who didn't inform you they were going ofc) person a whole 5 minutes. Some warning of course is only fair. What I usually do is alert them in staging room, pm them (if on buddy list. if not send a buddy request) and then if no response still give them a count down b4 kicking. I feel this gives the person ample time to respond and also is fair to the players ready to start.
