Was just reading the "rifle grenade" post and it got me to thinking -- and yes, I did a search about this before posting and could find nothing.

The guy was talking about how rifle grenade noobs will shoot the floor killing everyone -- including themself -- in a room. Basically he is committing suicide. This is similar to what so many pilots are doing these days by crashing their planes into tanks. I was playing Kharkov last night and there was this German pilot that did only that.

So I was wondering, is there anyway to have a spawn time penalty for suicides? We all know it happens in war, just look at a few Medal of Honor citations, but it really wasn't very common. Since we really can't create a fear of death in a game, maybe if a guy knew he had to sit out for 90 seconds (for example) he wouldn't be so quick to suicide into a tank or blow himself up.

I realize that a lot of guys kill themselves accidentally, but maybe there's a way to differentiate between accidental deaths that kill yourself and suicides where you kill yourself and other players?

This is not quite true from what I have experienced. I played a six-on-six (or sth like that) game of Kharkov lately on the German side and found that three to four frontal hits from a Pz4 will get a T34 so badly damaged that it either explodes or the drivers bails out.

I've seen several Pz4-against-T34 tank battles during that game and I saw myself that two Panzer 4 will get a T34 down without very much trouble. OK, right, one of the Pz4s will be badly damaged. But there's engineers, so what?

Basically, it comes down to two points once again: concentration of tanks and team play. OK, the Germans are quite in trouble if the Russian do that, too - but any team is in trouble if the enemy has team play and the own side doesn't.

I agree that the Germans should have at least one Pz4F2 to increase balance, but as it were, the game I was in was rather balanced anyway. Hey, we actually won that one! ;)

There are spawn time penalties for TK. If they could make the game think that killing yourself is same as TKing yourself, then you could apply that penalty for suicides too (and yes, if you fall off the cliff, blow yourself with a bad granade, or die from another self-inflicted death, then you still deserve the penalty)

Well actually, due to a bunch of my teamates wanting to charge through the map and start camping the german base, we had lost all flags, there were at least three panzers blasting us from the first flag, and two wesps shelling us from the ridge. Everytime we even got a T34 out of the base this jerk would crash into us.

If he had to sit out for a couple minutes for doing that, I'm just saying me might not be so willing to do it.

What I dont like is people only Kamikaze in non Pacific maps, but if its a Pacific map oh no we won't Kamikaze anything then, no sir.

1/3 of all pilots rather crashing into a king tiger than reloading and going for a second run isn't realistic either because hey you are respawning and your plane is as well but the king tiger will respawn a couple of seconds later.
