Well.. you seemed to have taken my advice because this is leading and I'm glad to see this side of you Canary, but I'm gonna bitch about it anyway because I feel bad that it was my request he honored. For one glorious round we all spawned as equals on the same flags.

Last yeldurht, it was 18 vs 2 at the end of the round, I threw a weapon into my buddy Axeman's head.  I was in TS with him and we were both laughing hysterically.  He didn't warn, admin message or even chat.  Canary bans me.

How many warnings, do you think, I should have to issue for breaking the most widely understood rule over the course of an hour? Or over the course of one day? Or one week? A month?

How many of those should ever even go to the same person?


You should never be attacking your teammates on purpose during a round. If that rule isn't as widely understood as I'm assuming it is, then with edifying reason has a person been punished who broke it.

I hope you're ready for a pseudo intellectual answer about why it's okay to kick or ban whoever for end of round TKing because he doesn't like them.

I had an amazing idea that reflects the way I personally would enforce rules. If no one complains then everything is great. Admin's should be there to address complaints IMO. If someone gets tked and complains then its admin time. if someone is breaking a rule and someone complains then its admin time... if no one is complaining then cant we just assume people are having... fun? and let them carry on.

This is personally the way that I deal with it unless it's low pop and potentially damaging to the server. Of course, there are numerous situations, and that's where your judgment comes in.
Sometimes people don't complain and just leave.

However, if you break a server rule and an admin slaps you for it, well... you can't really argue.
That's not coming from a dystopian power-starved video game admin- it's a rule.

I can't speak for Murder's situation, but from what I understood there was a TK before the round actually literally ended.
The end-of-round rule is in place because not helping your team at any time is potentially detrimental to your teammates, even if it's 18v2.
Yes, the team with 18 will most likely win, even if you managed to TK half your team down to 9, but gaining a multi isn't the only important aspect here;
It's also about generally helping your teammates, whether that be in making life easier for them and killing the last two quicker, or protecting their KDR by lending a hand.

Just my thoughts.

Assuming the admin is someone.  Then I would agree.   :)

All the other admin threads are just rants or some kind of themed image thread but this one has various admins having an intellectual debate over proper use of power in various situations.
I... I feel so dirty now.
Yes, been posted before. Rather than practicing swinging a weapon, it would be better to go 1 hander and learn a martial art that specializes in takedowns, because that's all that really matters in that sport.

The shibas and corgis have not yet made their way here, yet.
Don't give them any ideas.

The Canary equivalent of spamming cat pictures has been known to be walls of text with a declamatory or hypothetical slant.

Grandiloquence is the name of the game around here.
