    addscore was removed from pro use a little while ago.

    Whether this meets moral obligations of fairness is debatable......simple answer is,unless you know the server admin don`t join duel or team games on private spawned servers.
    I agree completely and this also remains the case for all rest of game modes. If you bought pro - do whatever you want with your own server. Because you have privilege to do it so.
    There's no better place than (127.0.0.1) HOME. . .

    Cool

    Well I guess the point is conceded then.
    The majority do infact advocate farming duel wins by booting players off.
    Commiserations to OP and everyone that fell foul of a certain player that cannot be named that posts a ****load of pointless video's. (j/k)

    Seriously though it does pretty much come down to what themolester said, knowing who is reputable and who isnt BEFORE investing in a match.
    Bad / frivolous modship has always existed and always will, back in the cs1.6 days I'll confess to kicking, slaying and levitating the odd player for a giggle, people will vote with their feet at the end of the day.

    This is pretty much those 'evil' stats rearing their ugly head again, kicking people in this way is now actually profitable.

    In the short term yes....but who will join his server once he`s known to behave like this ?
    Especially a duel server where opponents expect to be treated fairly and respectfully.

    ... unlucky for OP, shame on the unnamed server owner. Maybe there should be a change to the coding so that it doesn't get recorded as a win/loss if that does happen, although once demo's are sent we could see someone losing their $40 investment by getting banned for acting like an ass

    so you support people kicking others in the last seconds of a game?
    imo ingame kick should be disabled for duel (why do you have to kick somebody u play a duel with?)

    The nameless one got away with it for a few weeks reaching about 15th on the uk ladder iirc.
    Hopefully people will be mindful of this in future. Most private servers seem to be unranked these days anyway which is a good thing imo, encourages people to have a go.

    I think that this is quite clear. Report, and don't join pro duel servers again.
    Problem solved.
