Only thing that can potentially improve this is the inclusion of additional Terms of Service to the game itself, that would add some guidelines to what is acceptable admin behavior and what isn't, as well as some way to reward the former and punish the latter. At the very least I think every server should have a "kick/ban log" viewable from the lobby by any player, as well as last X minutes of the chat log for each kick/ban, or maybe even an autodemo before the kick/ban.
I so much don't think such thing would ever be implemented to Soldat. What would be the punishment for "the bad admin"? His server being unlisted from lobby seems like the only possibility. Than he doesn't have host the server at all. He pays for it and he owns it.

The conclusion is that you shouldn't play where admin is kicking or banning for no reason. You have to find another server. Sadly, there's not much of choice recently. And that's the reason this problem popped up today instead of any year before.

The problem is that there isn't even a way to tell if a server is ran by badmins except by learning the hard way. If there was at least some kind of transparency - players would be better informed even if they don't have much choice. At least they'll have an idea of what they're getting into. I agree, an ideal system would be too much work, but perhaps something basic could still be added someday.

Server hosting is a free market, you don't like one, you move to the other. If there's no other, you start your own. It's simple as that.
As long as there are people playing on zabijaka servers, it means they're good enough. And don't tell me "there's no other like this out there" because we all know it doesn't take much to set up a good competing server. There are plenty of people around (myself included) that only if asked will be happy to lend their equipment and assist anyone in setting a server.

I'd like to suggest that server shouldn't give a next map to be a small 3v3 map (unless voted by players) when there are 10/12 people playing. It turns to be a massive spawnkilling and uncompetitive gameplay.

I'd post about it here but it's been more than 120 days since last post.

Another suggestion (although possibly no one gives a shit) as it is a fucking mess especially on small maps:

Don't allow 16 players on one server. Make it 12 instead. This would force them to play on another Zabijaka's server. Teams will be smaller so the competitiveness would increase as gameplay experiance would improve.

There've been some requests for me to host a 3v3 server. I'd gladly do that if provided with a neat mix script with commands.

Im chill like that
