all flags lost, not going for flags

Read them. Obey them. Really.

all flags lost, not going for flags

Postby 777 » Sat Sep 24, 2016 2:00 am

the very common situation on ax : a team has lost all its flags, and only one or a few players on that team are alive and not going for flags, just goofing around , running or hiding. those players usually find this extremely entertaining and amusing, while 40 + players just sit in boredom and wait, unable to do anything. this, in some cases last up to 5 - 10 minutes, and people start to log off

what do you suggest we do about it ? nothing ?

my suggestion : allow / tolerate teammates to speak out the location after a minute if the player isnt going for a flag

or allow / tolerate opposite team players to switch to opposite team after a minute if the player isnt going for a flag, see location, switch back, and try to locate, kill the player

or creative a mechanism that autokills remaining players after x amount of time

For this situation, i understand that it's frustrating if really he doesn't make the effort to capture the flag.

If there is an admin online, report to the admin.
If there isn't an admin online, you can give his position to the other team.

However, i will kick a player who give the position of a player who make the effort to capture the flag.
And i will kick a player who switch to get the last player, it's not fair.

I do not think old players do this for fun
sometimes new players do this bcoz they are still in learning phase (may be)
its not a big issue I guess ;)

longer than 5 to 10 minutes I do not think this goes to this long bcoz score goes to zero pretty quick .

there is no rule that forbids revealing positions of players they do not go for the flag when their team doesn't have one and they're among few that are still alive

I find it quite amusing, some of the comments that the dead players post can be hilarious especially if the remaining player is a sniper.

Whilst speccing them they often die in spectacular fashion.

How about a mod that turns this scenario into a fox hunt, lose the armour and hunt them down and run them over with jeeps .

A mass of jeeps tearing after the sole survivor would be quite entertaining :D
