    We've recently been having problems with people doing this kind of thing on our servers.("xxx connected." over and over again)

    It bans(IP) anybody for 5 minutes that tries to connect 3 times within 20 seconds.

    Thanks To:
    Taner www.xkafe.net - For his help and idea.

    Note: Go easy on me. This one of my first pieces. If you see anything wrong/that can be improved, please don't hesitate to point it out. I'm sure that I've coded in a pretty ugly way.

    Tested on TF2, don't see any reason for it not to work on other mods.

    I personaly don't think the user should be banned as the user is only trying to connect to an available slot when the server is full and they are trying to be the first to connect before someone else takes the slot. Maybe put a cvar in to enable/disable bans?

    A plugin to just ignore the chat spam would be good. ie, tidychat.smx

    Edit, well i guess 5 min's isn't bad.

    Two sides of every coin. If a user is banned they may try to rage spam the server (the constant reconnect feature of TestScripts still functions afaik). It's up to the server owner whether they want to use it or not, but overall a nice plugin.

    Yeah it is a great idea, every full server that I've been in everyone complains about the connection spam in chat. That the complaining itself is even more chat/mic spam.

    hoox: I tried that, everytime an auto-connector joined before me. Even with a script. Still, it's an admins decision to use it.

    Thanks, twistedpanda.
