RedGander Posted April 20, 2013 Share Posted April 20, 2013 (edited) Before the admin defenders come to kill me, I'm not saying this is about abuse or anything similar. I love the admins on here, they're so much better than what I find on nearly any other server. What I want to address is the built-in function of No-Cheat to let operators bypass the PvP lag caused by the plugin. After being an admin on several servers, I have found after conducting some tests that PvPing as an operator compared to a normal player's status boosts hitting range as seen by the opponent by a couple blocks, which is an enormous advantage, as well as allowing many more hits per second. In fact, PvPing as an admin, which grants bypasses to NoCheat, renders one nearly invulnerable. As seen in the screenshots above, there exist included permissions nodes to bypass the lag caused by NoCheat on normal players. Operators on a server automatically inherit this permission. What I'm not saying is that any admins are hacking. When players fight on a server with NoCheat installed, the plugin has to check the player's movement, direction, etc., which causes a bit of time delay. A possible solution if an admin such as Mathijs wishes to pvp, a simple permissions plugin could be installed (such as http://dev.bukkit.org/server-mods/permissionsex/), granting an admin all necessary permissions, but not the ability to bypass NoCheat. Perhaps there is a better way, but in any case, with the current setup, fighting as an admin is an enormous advantage. Edited April 20, 2013 by RedGander witherfang 1 Quote Link to comment
