My point was, the only reason to get a hair up your butt about ROE violations is if you care about your honor. Honor is the only long term effect of ROE violations, but it gives people a reason to be angry about accidents that cost them points. Short-term, you get booted temporarily, or have to explain to someone why they're dead by your nade. Honor is very important pay attention to, because over time abusers of the game will be banned. Right now, Honor doesnt get you much besides the weapons you want, but down the road they may implement a lot more character development abilites, like accuracy and other privledges. When that happens repeat offenders will be at a disadvantage.
Besides, what about younger more inexperienced players? My 12- year old brother plays this game, and doesnt really have the concept of team play down yet. Should he be excluded from the game?
It helps to bind messeges to keys for different situations, like, "Move your in my way" or "Heads up Im throwing a frag grenade." Or learn to cook off your nades, youll get more kills and there is less of a chance of hurting teamamtes.
i was laying down in cover where i could shoot and there was a sniper behind me. i was in support mode and all of a sudden I STAND UP! the sniper was shooting at OPFOR right when i stand up and i died and he got kicked. i did nothing to stand up (lag?) and he got kicked (and lost 1 honor point, which he was pissed about). that kind of situation is where ROE sucks.
i know someones going to say "why were you laying down with the saw in front of your snipe?" well mainly because that seemed to work very well and they didnt figure out the snipe with a SAW:D
