Friendly fire and sniper limit

Postby Hesh on Sun Apr 02, 2006 1:40 pm

its proven fact that sniper limit is need its a no brainer.

and have to friendly fire, create a different gaming atmospher which should be tested out, which could benifit the server.

might be nice to try it out for a week.

We do have weapon limits across the maps already. If you know of a specific map where you would like to suggest different weapon constraints let us know.

Friendly fire is tried out every now and again, but generally ppl have not been in favour.

I'm against ff because it just sucks when you die with nade and take out also 1-2 from your own team. It's also lame if your team is full of trigger happy rambos. It's just not funny if own team is killing you more than the enemy team :? but that was just my opinion so ignore this post :shock:

If I'm not completely wrong all the clan matches are with ff on. Atleast on the ladders. That's prolly the only good reason to switch the ff on, to practise for a match. But, IMO ff off is much more fun (Nadeing is waay easier and safer ;)

I agree with p.u.m.a (long time no see btw, how are ya'?) and Dog.

Every time I've played with ff on over the last few months I've given up after 20 minutes and left because of some moron(s) tk'ing on purpose.

when i am on dod server and its full, i'll make a vote to see how many want ff on, i'll only turn ff on if vote is 70% + for ff on. you will most likely only see this happen if admin is on so as to stop any players from tking on purpose. note that the moment complaints start to come in, FF will be turned off and not be back on untill later time and better vote.

i hope this will make you alittle happy but be forwarned, i will not stand for any fool running around killing teams for a laugh.

(hope that is ok with you TC, will tell you how it turns out)

I'm against FF because all the noobs/idiots you kill accidentally, turn you into a bomb which kills 3-4 innocent members of your team. Therefore, in turn, the evil German's come and take all your flags while your team-mates lie dead, littered across the cold stone concrete of the abandoned church.

The sniper limit has made the server less fun to play on, especially when a skilled sniper/mg manages to get a slot on one team but the skilled sniper/mger on the other team cant get a slot because some noob with a 1-15 score is hogging the slot for the whole game.

I dunno if i'mthe only one whos noticed maps being way more onsided since the sniper limit came in.

I did mention this to the other admins about sniper/mg hogging, I suggested a way of making it so that when the player with the sniper/mg dies he cannot spawn back with the same gun and that would then leave a sniper/mg slot open for someone else.

Not sure if this is possible but would make it fairer to have and sniper/mg rotation.

Yeah, i do find this also.
It can be quite annoying.
However, if i'm that desperate for a sniper rifle, i'll go stand near the noob, and wait till he dies, and then pick up his weapon, tada!!
But possibly increase the limit on a sniper by 1?
Its still a limit, but the chance of getting one is slightly increased, and it shouldn't have any real negative impact.
But maybe no raising it anymore than 3.

Just ask me if i have sniper or mg i tend to be one of the first on the round and pick up mg/sniper just so i can give it to people that can use it.
i really hate people that are really crud with the weapons and constanly take them over and over just because there first to connect.

I cant stand it, my sniping skill shave actualy diminished since the new system because of the fact noobs keep on hogging the rifle even when I offer than a weapon trade or ask them nicely over voice chat.

I suggest maybe allowing upto 5 snipers then half way through the game chopping it down to 2 snipers acodring to their KDR?

Some of the weapon limits need looking at, for instance in flash 2 Mg's (in my opinion) is silly, you can stick 2 Mg's down and its stalemate for the rest of the game, as so often happens.

As for the FF on/off, I don't mind it, if your playing with guys who know what they're doing and haven't just bought the game and are firing in spawn im all for it, adds a new level to the game, Mg's just can't randomly fire at will etc.
