Spy on no FF servers?
Anyone find that on servers where there is no Friendly Fire that its Much Much harder to play a spy? (given im nto a great spy) because it seems everyone just tesnt shoots everyone they see to see if blood comes out.

Is there anything beying done to kind of make it harder to tell, like no blood or "visible damage" or anything like that?

Back when many pub servers used mirror dmg (havent seen that in over a year, but they use to be everywhere) it was great, people acually had to try to figure out who was the spy by checking names, class speed a and odd behaviors because if they shot a teammate they took the dmg instead.

The gas chamber servers have mirror damage on.
And about spy checking with mirror damage, people can just use a light shotty to check, if its a teammate, they take very little damage.. so its no use..
The only way to fix it would be to turn friendly fire on

Yeah i dunno what they can do about that though, just make it so blood pours out of people, regardless of FF on or not? I dunno, that would probably confuse noobs.

"confused noobs" are overated. it's suposed to be a stage before you advance to something else. not a perma title.

o_zaskar 06-17-2006 04:25 PM

its not confused noobs. It seems when FF is off testing everyone comming past you by shooting them is a widley used tactic, and its kind of lame when your a spy :/

the damed Snipers shoot everyone regardless ><

o_mescalito 06-17-2006 04:30 PM

hahah it's part of the thrill :twisted:

and yeah it is about noobism. there are ways to prevent ppl shooting at you. like hitting the voice com key. but you have to warn your team (asuming they speak english or human)

Oh im talkin about the enemy team.

Im not talkin about your own team shootin you on servers with FF on.

I mean on servers with it Off. people shoot their own team cause "what the heck" and they test to see if your a spy that way, since their teammates wont take dmg sept armor loss.

o_mescalito 06-17-2006 04:45 PM

maybe you just think they shoot you couse of "eh what the hell", maybe you really do look suspisious?:p maybe you don't move like a spy? seriously :D

o_zaskar 06-17-2006 04:53 PM

naa, well that may be part of it i cant say im great at spy.

but i get shot regardless and i see it happening to everyone else. on no FF servers teammates shoot eachother, it just happens. So maby have spys not show blood when an enemy shoots them or like was said, have everyone show blood when shot, even if FF is off.

o_mescalito 06-17-2006 04:59 PM

no :(

o_zaskar 06-17-2006 05:08 PM

Are you saying on most pubs you go into when you pic medic or sniper or whatever if FF is off your teammates dont shoot you to test for spy?

o_frenchtoast 06-17-2006 05:13 PM

No. When I'm running through a battlefield to try and capture an enemies flag for the glory of my colour, I don't have time to shoot all my teammates.

o_zaskar 06-17-2006 05:21 PM

Yea yea, but most pubs are filled with kill/death ratio losers, mostly snipers and i always get shot (even when im on their team and a normal class) i see people like that do i9t to everyone. maby i just had bad experiance on crappy pubs but i cant see that beying too different with that player type anywhere else.
