No Prone Mod.

Postby 9_Bar on Fri Aug 30, 2013 8:42 pm

Hi fellow dodders, ive recently got back into the game after playing TF2 for a while, mainly been playing on #2 donner, but the amount of prone players is driving me nuts, i used to be an admin for another uk community and at one point we tried a " no prone " mod, only MG could go prone, all other classes that went prone were automatically made to stand up, it was well funny to see players reaction to it, but it didnt last long to be honest due to so much complaining.
Is there anything that can be done about the proning ?, im not sure and i doubt it can be stoped, but i just thought i would mention it in case ukcs fancied a trial of it, if it is still available that is.

anyway end of rant/whine

cheers

I think your the first ever person to mention it in 10 years of UKCS.......

How did it work with Mg'ers ?

Would be nice if we implement such a mod, but i doubt it'll be received well by the community, worth a try imo.

im not sure how the mod was added to the servers as i didnt have anything to do with the running of the servers, but i guess there were options to which class could be allowed to prone

Everyone should be able to prone.. It would be like disabling the ability to jump. :roll:

Proning isn't a problem as far as I'm aware? Yes, some people do it too much and in the wrong places at the wrong time, just like camping. They're normally people who are still learning to play the game, or are serial campers. For the first set, they'll stop when they get better at the game and understand it more, they tend to prone in silly places anyway and are still easy to kill. As for the latter, once you learn where they prone you can rack up the easy kills on them and they normally start moving after a domination or so!

Removing proning ability seems overly harsh, as sometimes it is needed (even when not mg!). I have also played on a server where they had this anti-proning mod, it causes a lot of grief and is really not worth it!

yeah i know what you mean m8, but getting killed time and time again by the same prone assault in a dark corner gets well annoying, but i will keep playing coz its still a good game to play, with a good team its even better.
