    Here's a vid of some fun times on our server recorded by darkshader, this and other random events usually happen on our server quite a bit lol. Wish I had the knowledge of coding for source pawn so I could make some fun plugins for the server. But sadly, I can not and have to use the plugins other people have made and try to make things work.

    I love the occasional low-gravity, instant respawn allcrits server, though I find it funny how on that particular map there were no cubemaps and people deliberately avoided capturing control points.

    I have some setting on the server that lets scouts have like 5000 jumps and the ball recharger Is a lot fast, loads of fun aswell. The stasfaction you get from bonking players and seeing them fall to there death is nice lol.

    I think he just tabed out of the game, we all know that error, and when your flying in the air shooting rockets, who wants control points!

    - Orange map.
    - 100% crits.
    - low gravity.
    - instant respawn.

    It's blacklist fodder!

    100% crits isn't bad because atleast it's fair, random crits are what bug me. They ruin perfectly good gameplay.

    There should be an option that you can't shoot random crits, but you can't receive them either.

    There should be an option to never get random crits, I agree. That shouldn't keep others from getting them, though.

    That would be awful. People'd just throw critproof heavies onto crit stickies and in front of crit rockets.

    Exactly. Critical hits are a feature. If you remove them from some people, it breaks the entire game.

    What. I meant: You can't SHOOT random crits. You can still GET HIT by them.

    Then there needs to be an option where you don't get guns and an option where your team instantly loses. Even if you don't like crits, leave them on so that you're actually a helpful player.

    Crits don't make you a helpful player. Skill does.

    Yeah but any player with crits is still better than the same player without crits.

    Then a skilled player shouldn't be complaining about crits.

    I'm not saying he's impervious to the affects of crits, that's the point of why it breaks gameplay. We're talking about random crits here.

    A skilled player doesn't stand a chance against another who random crockets you in the face as you turn the corner. There's no 2 ways that scenario could have occured, the crocket was fired and it was impossible to dodge, and it one-shot kills the average class so you died. But because there's no way of governing random crits it's also inaccurate to state it benefits any particular player or team all the time.

    Getting random crits only makes you "useful" when you get random crits, which has nothing to do with you other than the fact you're in the game clicking the shoot key, and these crits don't necasserily always hit and affect gameplay. It's not something to be relied on. It just happens and it is annoying. Even killing people with crits annoys me because there's no challenge in it. It wastes perfectly good combat experience.

    A skilled player complains because they had no chance of reacting to the threat. Atleast if he got shot 3 or 4 times in the back he could admit he was not able to realise the threat in time and it was his fualt for not being more weary, and learnt something from it. A crit is just another death tally and 20 second respawn wait for no reason at all other than the 'game' decided it to be so.

    It's about as fun as having a random player in the server executed every 30 seconds for no reason. Amusing to watch from a distance but ultimately damaging an otherwise anjoyable gameplay experience.

    Why do I see nobody complaining about headshots or backstabs?
