Introducing U.S.G.N. Accounts
Security is one of the biggest problems of Counter-Strike 2D. Therefore, the new Counter-Strike 2D will have an optional user-account system. You will not be forced to get an account in order to play; however, people who setup a server will be able to choose whether they want to allow poeople without account to join or not.
The advantage of this system is that players can be clearly identified by their account. It allows permanent bans for players and much more. e.g. it would be possible to create blacklists of players who use cheats. Furthermore, it is an important step for clan wars and especially leagues.
It is already possible to obtain U.S.G.N. accounts. It's free and takes just a minute. All you need is a working e-mail address. So what are you waiting for?
Click here to get your U.S.G.N. account
- the account name will not be your in-game name
- you will get a random password. you can not change this password yet
I've already set up an account. This should really help the security of CS2D.
However, you should post this under News. (Just be sure, in order to meet the standards for a News article, put it in your own words and give link to the original source).
I'm sure it will prevent a bunch of the laggy players and hackers, which should speed up the PING a bit. Although, we will never be able to completely stop hackers (obviously).
Pro: Very little hackers will get through
Con: Those that make it through are most likely good hackers :]
Also, the site wouldn't let me post this in news for some odd reason; they said it was "advertising."
From my point of view, it stink tottally since there is no more info about this and this is a serious beta version of U.S.G.N. Accounts and I bet DC will make like a login screen at CS2D Max and we will probably lose a bunch of players that way, see it on that perspective. :(
Well the positive things are when ingame playing of course it is said that it will be maptransfer, spray/logo transfer, and such.
Although I bet something bad will come up soon or later.
There's always the internal bugs... :(
I hope DC codes it well. :/
Well my favorite map is de_bridge and some more but lol not de_cs2d. xD
It's too small, and feels shorter then it already is, and that's why I hate it.
de_bridge is long, has some sprites added lol which de_cs2d doesn't have, and de_bridge just has got it all as a default map. :)
My favorite custom map, there's lots. :|
Including my own ones...
Like... dm_lakeplaza, cs_747, etc. and |jUSTiN|'s maps.
Strange... recently, my CS2D says (when I click on 'Net Game') that there are no servers available and/or my PC can't connect to the USGN website. Could it have something to do with the account system???
Some help here greatly appreciated.
Updated, Internet checked, holes put in firewall (I also tried shutting it down altogether).
Urm, does anyone actually play CS2D online anymore? It just might be that there aren't any servers for me to see in the first place.
