Well I don't think you need to play seriously. Sometimes I do, but sometimes I just lay back and have some fun.

What you SHOULDN'T do is ruin everyone else's fun by being an asshole. This is a TEAM FORTRESS based game, if you aren't contributing something to your team in some way to help the team reach the objectives, then you shouldn't really be there.

It really sucks that there are people like that...I hope in future versions this is worked out.

I think FF and the Team Fortress series are one of those games where the concept of friendy fire just doesn't work at all.

It's just another discussion about having active admins in they're server. That's pretty much the only way to deal with this.

Yeah, if you have a server with ff on and you don't have an admin there most of the day then it is just inviting trouble. It's sad that people get their jollies off by doing stuff like this but they do.

We should be able to use fortress points per death to work out if someone is intentionally laming it up. Would be nice to have a server variable that when enabled auto kicks ppl deemed to be doing this. I'll speak to devs about it.

It's unfortunate, but short of good adminning it's very difficult to filter out the idiots or stop them from ruining the game in one way or another.

I have been killed with the flag more times than I can count because I went to the spawn room before capping the flag because I needed to heal.
I also hate that people do not get that the soldier has no ability to make his rockets hit the target 100% every time, and then when you, by accident, kill someone in a fight they return form the death as spy and kill you, I'm happy that there is no TK punishment, it is not needed if everyone plays like they should and I hope it will never be implanted (only if the only people that have the power of doing it is a admin that knows what he is doing (and that is not egocentric)

Join a server that frequently has the more sensible and talented in that like to have proper games. Those types you mentioned stay clear of these servers after one visit.

Some kind of TK punish (and the ability for admins to toggle it) wouldn't hurt. And just prevent people from picking up med-packs when poisoned or something. Not a complete fix for that one, but it'd help... Shouldn't intrude on clan games either

A TK punish system really doesn't work unless it's extraordinarily smart. Play BF2 and you'll know what I mean (everyone punishes you even when the TK was due to their carelessness or they actually forced you into the TK).

I don't like ff and don't play on those servers for a reason. They aren't that fun, and ff has a lot of spam and stray fire, way to easy to kill a teammate.

I think FF on team fortress / Team fortress based games is a bad idea. There's too much spam going on.

I've played TFC with FF on and it just made the game really hard to play as you were scared to have a firefight with a bunch of your team mates around in case you killed them.

Mirror damage would be an idea but not FF.

There should just be a more graphical democratic feature. Someone calls a vote to kick someone, and instead of having to go through console and work out the right command, it's F1 for yes, F2 for now. Have a set time, as well as some vote-spam protection. Presto!

i wonder.. what if you were driving a train and this comes up on your screen after some guy jumps in front of you at the station:

depressedsuicidalmaniac has punished you for teamkill

a base voting system would be good, but ofc its not a priority
