Alts in beginner rooms
As help squad recently I have spent quite a bit of my time in Beginner rooms and I have noticed how many alts are actually flooding them every day.

I am almost certain that some actual beginners abandon this game after being abused by alts in such way. It is very disrupting to new players who actually try to learn this game and get completely destroyed by alts.

I know that it wouldn't be an easy thing to manage, but there should be some boundaries and rules as to what is allowed in terms of alts. Such activity as going to beginner rooms on alts should be punishable in my opinion and this could be accomplished by giving an IP ban for few days, giving infraction to their main account or something of that nature.

Such activity wouldn't be easy to detect of course, but help squad could easily report such activity when supervising beginner rooms and moderators/administrators could deal with it accordingly.

If it is punishable, people aren't made aware of this rule and nothing is really being done about it as of now. It used to be punishable in the past as Slau have pointed it out to me, but nowadays it is forgotten and not enforced at all.

Just make (In-game squad):People with acces to join the beginner rooms and report the alts(The Help squad send infraction to alts after report)

-Only very very active players can join the squad-

I think Help squad is more than capable of doing this job and additional squad is not required. Also we are not capable to hand out infractions, that's smods' and admins' job

It could be a good addition to help squad as it would fit their name of helping out beginnerd


However when I was GM/ES I was the only one who did it for a reason, its tedious rarely rewarding and will increase the burnout rate of help sqaud

Well it wouldn't be something that you MUST do but I think some HS members wouldn't mind to go extra mile to help beginners

Well, shouldn't we make it so these people can't play against the low level players?
It'd defeat the purpose if they could enter and ruin the beginners days just as easy as the alt...

I believe if it isnt something you must do it would end up being done very rarely, so I disagree with you there


But I dont have an answer for how to quantify it or what sort of a quota to set







If this meant the creation of a squad I would probably just bring back ToriAgents and make it their job
