How to get players back in death run.

Since most people left due to switchers I am gonna propose a solution that will DEFINETLY work. It is needed to ban all switchers for a day! No exception. This is what they did on c9 zombie and this worked. Since many of us are not always active we need to motivate players to take screenshots. We will do this by sending messages in chat by b3 saying that switxhers get banned for a day always and tells people to screenshot switchers.

Why not just make switching unavaliable? I think we will get a lot of spamming on the forum by ban reports and complains of this rule, but idk.
Did you know 95 % of all statistics are wrong?

I asked a while ago to do that but I think vega said its not possible. About the spam, we can create a topic where people reply with screenshots of evidence.

It is possible to disable the auto switching of teams. I've seen it afew times on some old servers.
Though I'm not sure how hard it would be to code or implement this though.

Ok what can i do:
- prevent team switch that is not autojoin (if i block autojoin you cant neither join the game lol). This doesn't block smart switchers: 4vs4->one of the opposite team disconnect and my team's score is better->if i do autojoin i join the other team. This is the old 4.1 "Forcing autojoin"
- improve swaproles serverside without using shitty b3 that makes many mistakes

Force auto join should work. Very successful for c9 zombie. Only need to watch for reconnectors then.

Yea but would be a mess... if the player disconnect the next time he connects he would join a predicted team...even if unbalanced -> rage of him/other team.
Algorithm is too complex...

But i can put a timer each time the player switch team manually (with autojoin ofc) like 1 min, even if i think this is useless

Is it possible you can make the timer 50 minutes or even longer? And then switch then automatically to get this time limit.

But can we set a rule that lets us ban switchers for a day?

for very bad cases of switching (after they ignored at least 2 warnings) its ok to ban them for a day.
