It seems that lately people have found out that you can abuse /team s in order to become a builder without dying, or escaping a Basilisk grab. Last instance was Sir|WoGoMo, and he seems to think this behaviour is perfectly acceptable. Would any administrator(s) care to chip in and enlighten me on the status of such behaviour?

I would agree with you that it was cheating if there has EVER been any guideline about it. But I've done it lots of times and never has an admin ever warned me about it. There's been lots of admins on when I /team s and rejoin to spawn as a granger. What difference does it make anyway? I could just as well go die at a ret for all I care. Same outcome. Not like I am going to gain points by going to spec.

Until someone clarifies this, then I wouldnt consider your words worth anything. If it is considered cheating then fine, I will not do this again. But if it is not considered cheating then, I will continue doing this as I please.

In any case, I suppose you think that using another clan's tag is also acceptable behavior. You were using the name "Sir|riS" at the time and you are not in Sir clan. Condump follows:

Well to clarify, I wasnt even involved in a fight at the time I went spec. I was comfortable in base and just spawned, noticing the OM was down, I went to spec and rejoined as a builder.

You went spectator in order to circumvent a gameplay mechanic. You cannot evolve from a Dretch into a Granger, so in order to get a Granger you have to die, not go spectator and then respawn as a granger. You can act all innocent here, but on the server you surely took a far more firm stance on this subject. Always good to see how getting things out in the open changes people's behaviour.

Well, since we're all whiny-complaining today, lets see how the admins respond to your Clan Tag impersonation STEALING.

Tag stealing ban, for reference.

Indeed. I wrote that patch. I'm not fond of 'abusing' /team but I wouldn't call it cheating either.

Oh yeah! It was your QVM. Yes, we need that to servers! Then people will abuse /reconnect (most likely, not Cheesy).

All I want to know if this is accept behaviour, because if it is, I am binding /team s to a special key to save me from those special situations I rather not be in.

easiest solution would be add a 20 sec or so timer on /team then they can go into spec but they got to wait out the timeout if they want to rejoin a team

is it cheating prob not is it a lame thing to do yes

I don't really see a problem in leaving your team and then rejoining to spawn as a granger but leaving your team to escape basi grab is kind of cheap

Code:
[S] Sir|riS: and this is not your clantaqg
[S] Sir|riS: its Sirris
[S] Sir|riS: tard

@Lava Croft: I neither know nor care about your cats. And since you have opened a door here, I dont see any problem in me highlighting you stealing our clan tag during your whining session. You could very well have chosen the name "Sirris" or SirriS for all I care, but you chose to use the "|" character after the first 3 characters in an obvious but fail/self-contradictory attempt at trolling the clan.

I'd say if you have nothing constructive to say about this, you should just stfu and stop being such a jackass.

IMO is's abusing a flaw in the system, which is cheating.  It's exactly the same as why /kill got it's timer.

Should I ever see someone doing it, I'd tell them to stop / kick them if they didn't.
The rules are quite clear in not being absolute and allowing common sense, and this is quite obviously dickish at the least.

IMO the only time this sort of thing should be allowed is if you accidentally drop a nade in your base.

The rules are quite clear in not being absolute and allowing common sense, and this is quite obviously dickish at the least.

Code:
The rules are guidelines.  Use common sense and fairness,accept that there isn't one of us who won't screw up at one point or another and accept your lumps as we all will.

Then the rules should state it more clearly. Too much room for interpretation is not a good thing IMO. For the record, I've never even been warned about this.

/team s could be counted as a death if your health is not 100%. The build timer should not reset just because you switch team.
Easy to implement and fixes the problem.

(If anyone would do /team s to get rid of a basilisk I would personally kick them)

I think /team s should remove all your credits/evos and score.  The point of /team s is so you can stop playing trem.  Why would it ever be used for something else (and not call it cheating)?  Also, I thought you couldn't /team s/a/h while you had a build timer?

TBH I even have an EXAMPLE of why you could use it and have it not be a lame thing to do:

Yesterday on UTCS I accidentally pressed my nadespam bind instead of my buy jetpack bind while building base in the thing up top (I had moved there at S1 Cheesy ) (on my MacBook Pro the nadespam bind is Func+F8). However, that was my OLD buy jetpack bind. I have no clue why I did that. It would have quit. Anyways, I went spec given I had (thought I had) left a nade on the medi. So I quickly typed in /team s and got that nade to disappear. Turns out it was unnecessary as it had fallen through one of the small holes Tongue But still, that's a reason /team s is a fine thing to use.

You could just not nadespam in the first place. That's a very, very weak argument for instant spectator.

This appears to be nothing but incomprehensible noise. It sounds like the best way around that particular situation is to, you know, not have a nadespam bind...
the only time i can think of that someone using /team s deserves to hang onto credits/evos is if they happen to be an admin investigating a problematic player, but since i don't necessarily trust the majority of admins not to abuse, even this isn't a solid case.

I agree. Shortly before I left ripeflesh was using /team s binds to avoid dying as a human. I didnt really bother to yell at him then. If tremstats mean that much 2 you, why not be happy?

I've kicked and handed some short 1-day bans for it before and I will do so in the future if I see anyone doing it. It is as much abusing the gameplay mechanics as glitch-building or anything else.

WoGoMo thinking it's perfectly OK to do so makes him quite a fool indeed.

Personally I'm thinking that you could be let to go spec whenever you like but you have to wait like 30 seconds before you can teamchange again. Seems much easier than trying to nail down every abuse case and preventing it only then.

Honestly now. How was I to know since I've seen it being done countless times even with admins present, and nobody thought to say anything.

By using common sense. There isn't a possibility to devolve in the game is there? The /team <a/h/s> binds are not supposed to be a part of gameplay, just means of getting into a team, or do you disagree?

I would say when switching teams, theres a 5 second countdown on your HUD and it gets cancelled if you take damage. You join the specified team instantly if you are dead or on spectators team.

i cant see the problem with using it to come back as granger, simply because it was the easiest option at the time, i am sure if he was near one of those "wrong places" he would have used that way, either method would have had little effect on the outcome of that 'oh so serious' public game.
using it to escape from dying or escaping basilisks, well that is just low.
