How to stop the duel lag-vote bug (inside)

As some of you know there are two exploits becoming more common on duel servers.
This post has nothing to do with the dis/reconnect bug.

It is about the second one where a client calls a vote and lags them self out for a moment so the vote will pass.

What you will see is someone calls a vote, then starts rapidly changing everything from their model to their name and saber color to temporally 999 themselves.

When a vote is called in a duel and one client is 999 it passes even with just the one vote.

A very simple way to stop this is open your console by pressing Shift and ~ at the same, then type this:

\bind any-key vote no


As soon as the vote is called and they start to overflow simply kill the vote.

You *can go into the menu and kill it, but you need to be quick (and it's simply easier this way).

For those of you who know how to induce lag and cause a server command overflow, you can do so while they are 999 (it takes a few seconds before their ping returns) and actually dump them yourself without a vote.


The reason for posting this is I have seen far too many people sit there and do nothing because they assume it takes two votes for it to pass in a duel so why bother (normally it does, hence the reason it's called a bug).
