Im seriously tired of little smacktards ruining the game for me and have taken to being a TK killer. Unfortunately this got me into it with a 'legitimate' player last night. I was continually hunting and killing two TKs that had been on my team for a couple of maps when this 'legitimate' player starts doing the same to me, lol. I ran right up to him several times and just stood there trying to explain what I was doing and he just drops me. I would have thought since I was just standing there talking to him and not trying to kill him that he would have listened, but no, *sigh*. He tells me "I saw what you did last game!" Which is when I realized I had a score of like -13 or something from killing those same two TKs. After about 3 maps of doing nothing but hunting the TKers they got frustrated i guess and left the server to find easier kills. I think this is the best way to handle them right now untill we get a simpler option to vote kick people and most people learn how to do it. A -3 or -5 auto kick would be nice for sure. Only problem is by doing this I look like a TK too. If any Devs read this please give us an easy vote or auto kick option, this is really getting out of hand.

Hi Pappy Boyington,

We've all had days like that! I've had an interesting idea though. Instead of having a "kick" from server, what about having a "kick" from teams, making the tk'er a rebel and putting them in a really bright flourescent uniform, they wouldn't get any points, we would still get points for killing them and both teams can hunt them down and kill them as much as we want without being a tk'er. That would be a laugh :lol:

Have fun and keep cool

:cya: :cya: :cya:

Yeah! That is a great idea! :lol: Someone should make a mod like that! If it's possible. If the damn tkers don't leave when that happens there is something seriousely wrong in their heads. The skin should be really really bright and glowing so he can't hide anywhere!:lol:

I make a habit out of solely hunting tk's. I announce my intentions to my team and concentrate on killing the tk. Make sure the rest of team knows who your target is, and blast them relentlessly. I was surprised at how quickly they lose interest and leave. No one likes getting killed repeatedly, and they don't like it anymore than you do.

Some advice on ending the problem:

Use only an SMG. Splash damage weapons (gernades, rockets, and explosives) endanger the team you are trying to protect. Every TK I have seen is constantly on the move, so using a sniper rifle is also very difficult.

Predict their spawn point. This is usually pretty easy... tk's will want a lot of targets, so pick the spawn with the most friendlies.

If they tell you they are stopping, give them a chance. I often see tks cry "uncle" and focus their attention on the enemy team.

Above all, don't let get under your skin, or failing that, don't let them know if they are. They are often out to get negative attention, and giving it to them just feeds their ego.

Happy Hunting!

i hate to be the odd duckling, but what you guys have ta remeber, that in ANY round with FF off, there is a 80% chance you WILL TK Someone Accedently, and if they come back and TK you, it gose baack and forth till someone leaves, this is why MOST servers (exept for stunt) should put that server mod on, that kicks pplz wiht a score less than -6 i think, but in turn, if you kill a TKer arent u a TKer,

Well, Just A Thought, Jusssst A Thought

Hi Bu-Fu,

You're not really the odd duckling, there are problems with FF on servers, TK'ing being one, but there is a difference between accidentaly killing someone on the same team and doing it on purpose. For instance most ppl who accidently kill a team mate apologise - I always do, and you can usually tell they didn't do it on purpose cause they won't have a huge negative score, purposeful teamkillers always end up with big negatives.

People getting killed by their own side is just a fact of war, it happened in the Gulf War, but what FF does do is encourage team work. Quite often I see warships shelling flags indiscriminately whether they are theirs or the enemies on servers with FF off, just hoping to get an enemy sneaking into their own camp, instead of coordinating with scouts to try and shell the enemy held positions.

I personally think the advantages of FF on servers outweigh he disadvantages. For instance I can usually come much nearer the top score on FF on servers than on FF off cause even on FF off servers I don't throw grenades at teamates feet hoping to get an enemy around the corner. The guys who do behave like that do it on both off and on servers so get negatives to bring their score down on FF on servers.

I agree we need ot get rid of TK'ers ASAP, but turning FF off is not a solution.

Have fun

Hi Bu-Fu,

Perth, W.A. and it's damn hot right now. Usually play on 3FL, Eftel, Austarnet and servers like that, maybe see you there one day. As for the runners in, if they can't see you throwing grenade in it's their fault no matter what they say, they're probably used to playing on FF off servers. If I see a team mate throw in a grenade I wait for the bang then dash in to catch survivors off guard, that's the way it's supposed to be done.

Have fun

:cya: :cya: :cya:

True, I ALWAYS apologize hwen making an accidental TK. The only exception to this is if I do it while flying a plane, simply because I cant type and fly at the same time. Normally I play on servers that have FF off so TKing is not as much of a problem. Just the other night I guess I hit an EA server that had FF on 100%. Normaly I just jump on the first EA server with a good ping and an available slot. It has occured to me that 'private' dedicated servers usually have a mod or someone with kicking abilities on them but the few I have played on usually have either the realistic MOD running or like a 30-45 second spawn time, both of which I dont care for. Im just saying that the Devs need to address this issue ASAP, the smacktard influx has only tripled since the holidays. Hell, why would you even buy your 13 yr old a kid a game where they shoot and blow people up anyways?! But I guess if these parents had any brains their children would have some manners. /e shrugs.

Oh BTW I DID announce to my team that I was hunting TKs, I even had one guy working with me. I guess the guy I got into it with either didnt see the message or came into game after I posted it.
