Sky CaptainSometimes when I accidentaly Tk someone, and they hit punish, it's like 'DUDE, WTF IT WAS A FREAKING ACCIDENT".

Well, at least in BF2 he had an option to forgive. What would have happened had you TKed someone in BF42 or BFV? You would have been automatically punished. You should thank the BF2 for giving an explicit option to forgive.

Raptor25Well we can't change players,some people will always be noobs. But we can take the punish system away and with just -2 for damage and -4 for TK. They just need to completly go back to BF42's and BFV's vehicle collision system. It reminds me of Halo's Cars, one tap and you dead.

This is somewhat offtrack, but man do these vehicles get damaged easily. Are they made of plastic? Tank bumps into a tree and voila, you get small damage. But back on track, just a bit ago I got online and was in Sharqi map. Time after time people kept running in front of my tank. Sorry, there is just no excuse for that stupidity. The tank does not go that fast, becasue a lot of noise so you can hear it coming, but still idiots do not bother to look. I wonder how these people cross the street in real life? And of course EVERY one of them punished me. Points did not bother me as much as when everyone is doing this it does not promote teamplay when everyone is pissed off at the other. More often it seems to just create animosity among the team.

'Dreadnought[DK']there's nothing wrong with the system. the problem is the players. some are just too stupid to play the game and hit the punish button simply because they can.

Yeah the only problem with the game is the large number of Gomers who play. The Punish/Forgive system is fine if its abused, which it always is. Its not my fault those knuckleheads run over my mine which is clearly marked, or run into friendly arty. These prats must have a finger permanently hovering over the Page Down button or something.

The system is not abused. In other BF games, you get punished automatically. In BF2, people at least have an easy option to forgive. What does get abused is the ridiculous "friendly vehicle/player collision" system. That's the problem, not the Forgive System

A simple fix to the system would be to force a 10 second delay on the system. You can forgive immediately but you cannot punish until 10 seconds after the deed. This means that the tker will have plenty of time to apologize for the accidental tk. I also think that there should be a punish stat for each player that keeps track of your punishes versus your actually death by tks.

Sounds good to me. I was flying a jet around yesterday and although I'm not brilliant at flying the jets, im not crap either. While evading a Mig I hit some guy in an attack chopper, barely clipped him. Literally as soon as we explode I'm punished. How can he be that quick? As soon as I accidentally TK'ed, straight away I get punished sad%20%28frown%29.gif @Hydraslav. I think if someone runs over your mines and then punishes you for it thats abuse of the system personally. Yes they have the option to forgive but I wonder how many actually do forgive. I normally am extremely careful in any game not to TK. If I accidentally do in BF2 I am automatically punished in the blink of an eye. As I said before there isn't a problem with the system, the problem lies with the idiots who use it.

Lik Dread said, its not the system its the players. it takes so much out of the game when Im punished for some guy crashing into my mines or claymores, even when I announced it over VOIP.

'[SYN hydraSlav'] You drive along the residential street in car, there are 5yo kids playing ball, a ball rolls onto the road, the excited kid runs straight after it, you drive over that kid with you car. Is that your fault or the kid's fault? Technically, it's the kid's fault for running under the car, but it will be you that will be punished and made responsible for this. You should have thought ahead, and slowed down. If you a racing by some infantry in a tank/jeep/APCs, you see him from behind, he doesn't. It's your responsibility to either avoid him, or let him know you are there. And whatever the outcome is, you as the driver is responsible for knocking driving him over, cause if all fails, you should stop and let him go, or drive around him.

In a split second that it takes to hit someone how exactly am I supposed to warn them?! and why should I warn them when they should be paying attention to their mini map which clearly shows I am coming. I do drive slow when my map shows their are teammates near by but some idiot still manages to run out in front and get hit. No matter how much you argue it is always the drivers fault, it isn't. I am not saying some hits can't be avoided but to say it's the drivers responsiblitly all the time is off mark. and what about when I am firing at an enemy vehicle with anti tank then some twit decides to run up to the smoking and damanged vehicle which then blows up and it states I just team killed? Is that my fault too because in the middle of battle I didn't take the time to type out all my strategy so everyone knows what I am doing?!?!?

the other day I was driving a tank and had a gunner, so we are headed towards the front line (so to speak) and he decides to get out of the vehicle as I am driving, well guess what he got killed and he has the nerve to punish me for it..... Am I supposed to be a damn psychic now too. He could have just asked me to stop so he could get out.

If people spent a bit more time paying ATTENTION and realizing that they just got killed because they did something stupid then it would not be so bad untill then we have to live with the immature.

see the running over teammates can be fixed if the vehicles didnt act as if they were coated in Anti-matter I mean jeez tap someone with your bumper and they cant even be revived. And if you think abouit it you have a much better chance of being revived from a car crash then you do from taking a bullet to your head or heart or any other vital organ :D
