Flood Idea
« on: March 16, 2009, 06:45:23 AM »
Well, I got to see the code for Stealthbot . And I hatched an Idea for better flood protection.

How about instead of a burst ban of 5 like what Ruthless and NF do, how about a ban outside of the queue, and then inside then outside again. The way it worked out in my head was really sweet. It just came to me. I think the Outside, Inside idea will stop the flooding of bans from the bot to BNET, as well as keeping the channel clean of floods and other stuff.
You noobs don't got the skillz tha killz.

A burst ban along with command synchronization is flawless, especially when 3 or more bots participate in it. I've seen this at Clan WaR@Northrend.

Hopefully, when I can get VectorBot to finally connect, I'll work on another project that I kind of started but halted (Synergy Co-Op). Either that, or I'll allow packet 0x13 on VectorNet to be a command receiver/synchronizing packet. It'll only work if you're connected with a certain product ID. (just called Bot Synchronizer). This idea may play out in time, and I see huge potential with this.

Your idea is ok, but it does lay open the possibility of flooding, whereas the burst ban froze the queue for 10 seconds or so before another burstban took place.
