ID is flooding the server list with shitty clones.

There are as of this moment five servers with the same id kids on it, all of who are robots and never play.

I advise the banhammer.

Do you mean iD tech camp?

Not bots, 12 year olds.

Hello,

I'm from iD. We had someone from the community reach out to us to inform us as to what is going on in the public servers. I just wanted to say that we really appreciated being notified, and have been working with our Regional Managers to get the word out that we need to re-enforce a couple our policies. The first policy is that our students should never be on public servers, and the second is that they should always behaving in a manner as befits a good digital citizen. -Trash talk or trollish behavior is never acceptable.

We’ve been playing Armagetron every summer for years (I've been playing for seven), and we love the game. As BiggySmalls was saying, not bots, just nine year olds.

We appreciate your time and consideration,

Fennel

Yeah, I remember the iD kids first showing up maybe 2006? Then they were around for quite awhile with their own servers and clan. Can't really recall what I thought of them at the time, just that they were mostly uber-high rubber players. I haven't played since they've shown up this year, but thanks, Fennel, for cracking down on their reportedly crappy behavior—although it should be said, many people in our own community are rather immature and crappy as well, and need to take it upon themselves to behave better, too.

Some of the oldest tron players originated in iD camps or similar classrooms. That's probably the only way this game will get any new blood. Welcome them!
