Hi is there anyway to make your wc3 map ban people/or kick them from your game? like when a player named "xxxx" is in game action: remove player from game?

yeah. its way easier to use a bot or banlist for this, but you could just do something like -

Game initialization

Player name = 'xxx' as an exact match

Actions - destroy all units belonging to (triggering player)
- set game state (defeated) for (triggering player)
- display text to player (you have been banned)

Something like that...

Yes. Check for these names on GameInit and remove them.

Code:
E: MapInit
C: Nothing
A: set Bans[1] = "Rudolf"
   set Bans[2] = "Rüdiger"
   set Bans[3] = "nEmo"
   set max_bans = 3

   Pick every Player in AllPlayers and do
      For Integer a from 1 to max_bans do
         if PlayerName(Player(Integer A)) == Bans[Integer A] then
            RemovePlayer(Player(Integer A))
Freehand.

Your map triggers only take effect once the game has started, so you would not be able to "ban" anyone from entering the game. If you use the methods suggested by the above posters, your triggers will only ruin the game for the other players.

I wouldn't think that would work very well though, maybe it would the first time, but considering they could just add a character or alter their name very slightly and it would nullify your code...

Every method results in removing players from the running game. There is now way around if you stick to the world editor and no 3rd party tools.

Very true, even changing one letter to a capital whilst logging in will render the code useless.

Rather just get a kick system.
Third party programs are not distributeable via the helper, its in the rules.

While that's true, I don't think he meant a 3rd party tool. Kick System:

I personally think 'ban lists' are not a nice way to get rid of players. They have a huge potential for abuse, and in general do not give players an enjoyable playing experience. If you have a problem with a player, remove them in-game via a kick system, or kick them while they're in the lobby. If they're the host, leave and make your own game. ;)
