Colonist.io Player Suggestions
players are changing their usernames to get into games that they were kicked from and then trolling/targeting.
Asking to bump this up. Trolling is getting out of hand.
Is karma not solving this?
No, karma is fantastic for helping to weed out some players, but same players are changing their usernames. We can track karma and assume that a 17/20 has changed their name to get into a game, but those same players continue to change their name if they've developed a bad reputation. For example, I'm xyz#1021 and I've got perfect karma, but I'm an asshole. I troll certain players by stalling their games, starting games and then quitting them to get a computer in but then I come back and
join later. I develop a reputation and so I change my username to something else and start joining games to target players. Locking usernames is the only way to fix this because you basically tokenize the email address and it discourages players from trolling if they plan on playing long-term
