Hello.

Umm dunno how to break it to you. But "Join any official multiplayer server that is empty and log in as the admin" this should not be possible at all. So it works as it should.

CP/escape/zues/support official coop servers is where the problem lies and needs to be fixed, but not being entirely clear doesn't make the point irrelevant because they're still the official servers, ones where you CAN log in as an admin, which really should have made it entirely obvious as to what I was talking to if you knew that you shouldn't be able to log into "any official multiplayer server". then i wonder, what ones could he be talking about that he logs into??

really makes you think!

You can be voted as an admin that is different than being logged in as an admin as both have different privileges. But I understand that the difference might not be obvious at first glance.

Also if you read the wiki you can find this line of text under the paragraph Access

It is worth noting that when debug console is configured for admin access, it is only available for logged in admin, voted in admin is treated just like any other user in this respect.

Our official servers are configured in such a way so that voted admins do not have access to the console.

So yes my previous statement stands. It works as intended.

If that is the case, then how the HELL do you explain this? It has been working for months, are you meaning to tell me you guys just never intended for the debug console to be used while giving us the ability to enable that parameter? If so, this game has just taken an even further dive, I'm sure your players just LOVE having functionality stripped from right under their feet.
