What Is With People Destroying Other teamates Towers??

PostAuthor: sed1er » Thu Dec 20, 2012 1:25 pm

I'm going to make this quick. I play CTF only and when i start building towers to use for defense I get froups of people destroying my tower and the groups are from my own team. They will spend the entire time making sure I can't construct a thing. A few of them say "Stop building and kill people". I'm pretty sure it's my choice weatheri want to Build and/or Shoot. Eitehr way people don't seem to understand that, that is the reason im building things. They assume i am messing around. Is anyone else getting this? It's really killing the game for me. Green_Crying

Yeah, that's annoying. Try contacting an admin or votekick them.

or try playing the babel gamemode. babel is about an intel on a high platform, team trying to reach it by building a tower. teammates cannot destroy the tower, but enemies can, but if you like building its a good mode.

Just in the interests of being scrupulously fair to all parties, are you building those towers somewhere they're actually useful for defence? I mean, if there's a major enemy assault going on and we're in danger of being pushed back to the tent, and three or four players are blithely erecting a fancy bunker at the other end of the map... Well, it's not considered very helpful.

When someone builds one block wide pillar into the sky, unless they're actually doing something useful somehow, I usually can't stop myself from giving in to the urge to shoot it down and watch them fall to their death.

Well they have a point some times, if your team is under heavy fire why not put down the blocks and pick up the trigger?

What do you mean, the one block wide pillars? They usually serve no purpose, especially when they're out in the open and since it's one block wide, you're pretty much asking for someone either on your team or the enemy team, to shoot out a single block and watch you smack your face on the ground below. Unless they're being used to reinforce an existing structure, you're only making yourself sniper bait.

What are you talking about? I am saying if your team is getting whooped why not help out?

Right. Help out, sure...but not by making single block pillars in the middle of nowhere. I was just saying, when I see these pointless structures I can't stop myself from shooting them down.

It sounds like you're talking about actual fortifications. I was just commenting on useless pillars.

Ah, your reply was right below mine so it looked like a reply to my reply. :P

It's all good. Or is it? Sure, why not.

The only thing you can really do in those situations when there's no mod around and it's impossible to votekick a griefer is to join the other team or a different server. Sometimes, joining the other team doesn't help though because they have the same idiots doing the same thing on their side too.

Well i am playing on the hallway map sever. where you are mostly pushed back to your own based and im setting up walls for people to use as cover so they dont get shot from up above and so the other team has a difficult time fighting through. Then the grenades set in and my team even makes me crash out of the game when they place blocks on me lol. I can see most doing it because they don't see any repercussions.

I saw that as a gametype and was wondering what it was and why so many people were playing it. Definitely going to check that out. Thanks.

it has its own drawbacks of course, but if anyone really likes to build, it is the one mode to play I think.
