I'm not sure if this was discussed before, but personally I think it should be removed, the possibility to "accidentily" or actually killing a teammate on purpose with for example the bog of the forgotton snake traps or the catapults (pretty sure I am not using the right name but I forgot it, sorry about that) what do you guys think? that it'd be fair to stay because it otherwise might be overrused? that it's actually a bothersome thing and should be removed?
I think the idea of the ballistas is that they are SO powerful and agile (4 target spots) that it'd be unfair to have no friendly fire on them. At first I thought it was a bug in the programming but over time, I can see why they were chosen for friendly fire. Spike trap levers can be seen from the spot of the trap, ballistas you can't even see who is manning them from their target spots.
that's happened to me too ... we were 100 points away from the win, I was changing an altar & bang - my own team mate hit me with the flame thingy & I died - cost us the match ... same player did that to me on a few matches ... I left the lobby. was pretty frustrating to be killed repeatedly by my own team.
Perhaps if there was some penalty for killing your teammates. A teammate killed me yesterday while I was trying to cap, no enemy in sight. As I was re spawning, he capped it instead.
Lol, that' actually funny. He takes the "team" out of teammate.
I actually have accidentally hit my own teammates with the ballistas, killing them. More than once And yes, I go capture the altar while they are dead. Time is money...err...favor...in this game. Having had a few games come down to the last seconds or 20 pts., I have learned to grab them altars ASAP no matter what.
