RaiD2606:what do you mean?
Game gets updated by steam when it needs to.

Not you, silly. The devs!

They need to upgrade to a version before the downgrade. At least then with all the bugs it wont suck complete dick and real people might actually play it because everyone know that Survarium today is just no life addicts and brazillian bots.

Tanatloc:He meant downgrade.


Just because you like the butthole look of the dusk doesn't mean the rest of us share your fetish.

The system sucks, really!
ID 13602839
This was actually good match, quite well balanced and started well for me.. But got the penalty!! I moved a lot, missed few shots, missed disarming artifact by 1 second or so because teammate was faster.. the Fcking penalty!!!

Then played really bad match where I would have punished myself if I could but no penalty at this one ID 13603056
Here the opponents were not too tough just really bad timing and luck for me and no penalty...

For my honest opinion the system needs to be fixed. There has to be a different way, maybe a vote KICK? The players in the match actually knows that if someone's not participating...

Can we really trust the 4 active players with this power?

If you didn't confuse me, then what was the meaning of your sentence?

A thorough explaination? Here?! Nice try.

When Survarium itself kicks you out of game because of unstable ping over wifi, could it at least reset the penalty timeout?

Because it really sucks to be penalized 5k silver for something you cannot influence.

My latency ranges from 70 to 290 based on unknown factors, so sometimes I just get latency-kicked and then penalized :-P

Have you tried this test for buffer bloat?

Give it a go and see if you can eliminate this as one of the problems.

Maybe with mechanism when the about to be kicked player doesnt react in anyway for example warning text that he/she is about to be kicked the its assumable he's/she's AFK?

When you get kicked out of a match and it doesn't load you back in, you can rejoin it by restarting your game. If you're losing your connection so much that you get kicked out several times in those 5 minutes, if I were you I wouldn't play.

I see. I'm talking with troll and nolife. You could tell earlier. I wouldn't bother to answer if I knew that.

[You moved a milimeter in 5 minutes of gameplay, thus we let you continue playing.]

[You scratched your nose for a full minute, thus we kicked you.]

[Your playmates are south american/east block/ching chong gangbangers/clan mates and control the majority of all real player slots. They decided to kick you out for various reason. Maybe for fun. Maybe because you suck ass, idk.]

[You haven't killed or damaged anyone in the last 5 minutes, so we kicked you even tho you have played a vital role in enemy disorientation.]

Tanatloc:I see. I'm talking with troll and nolife. You could tell earlier. I wouldn't bother to answer if I knew that.

I'm hurt. Why would you do that? What have I ever done to you to be called such horrible things?

trouble_every_day:Of course.

The game kicked me out 2 times in a row. by the time I manage to log in for the second time I get 5 mins inactivity penalty. That s ridiculous. To lose points not due to the player's fault but the game's. I understand that Inactivity penalty has its use but at least fix that fucking problem that kicks players out of games with an error message.

Main reason is that there is no way to check whether disconnection was accidental (e.g. network failure) or deliberate (e.g. alt-f4). If you don't score points for 5 minutes for whatever reason, you'll get the penalty, that's just how it is. If you don't have any issues with your connection, it shouldn't take you as much as 5 minutes to reconnect to the match, even if you are forced to restart the game...

...and I wonder how many times are you able to restart the game in the only legit reason - network failure. It takes several minutes for my router to kick back in. VG promised originally that the reason for disconnection would be considered. This is a minor topic anyway.

Making zero or only one kill in a complete match does happen to me.
