Something very odd.

There's a duplicate clone of my server now in the online server list.

I know it's not an accidental one, and I know it's not some kind of accidental VM clone in the hosting environment.

But it's up there with an identical name, location, server message etc. as my server and it's confusing the server regulars.

I just wondered if, if the devs contact me privately maybe, perhaps the fake clone server could be removed? It just seems a bit of a mean thing to do.

Thanks.

Thanks Ben!

I could have guessed this, but it's a banned player who's doing this.

I've done a little packet sniffing and have an IP address and location of the fake server.

Is there anything that can be done to remove it from the server list?

Not really. But you can write the owner (or as close as you get to him / her / it) that you are considering taking legal actions and base it on ID theft of some sort. Alternatively, go directly to the ISP, stating the same, and maybe they will take actions.

Thanks - I don't think I care that much and what they're doing is probably not illegal.

It's a couple of fairly well known Wreckfest griefers I think.

I don't want to post the details, screenshots, evidence on this forum but I've posted them on my own here, if anyone's interested.
