So i was playing Werewolf the other day and i got into an argument with this guy after i killed him. He said he'll kick me and he left. 30 secs later i was disconnected from the game. How is this possible? How do i protect myself? I was the host btw.

Well if you're playing on someone's bot, the admin can do whatever he wants, and you won't be able to protect yourself in any way.

Everyone who joins your games can see your IP address. While the odds are low that someone 1337 enough is still playing WC3, they could DDOS you causing you to disconnect.

If you were the last player and were using a bot to host the game it does disconnect you after 30 seconds from the second to last person leaving.

Of course, that's why I said it was unlikely.

I'm pretty sure what happened was you got sad/mad and left on your own. That's called: "Ragequitting" which is often summarized as "raging".

To insure this never happens again, remove your "Alt" keys along with your "Q" and "F4" keys. Subsequently, if you're using a Mac, remove your "Command" key along with the "Q".

I hope this has solved your problem and I wish you the best of luck with further internet arguments :)
