Revenge is just an awful booster. With level three, you can easily waste a 10-medal kickback simply by getting killed. Who would honestly use that booster at gold? Just think about it...with Revenge Gold as your slot 2 booster, you forfeit your teamsafe, and if you had Megabomb/Clusterbomb equipped and ready to be activated, you could wipe out your whole team just by getting killed.

Is there a reason your teammates should live while you die? No. Take them with you and you can all respawn together.

I don't think Revenge is the problem.

 

The problem is how it works during stealth animations and ones that just auto explode with lag.

 

If it's unlagged and your taunting, you had revenge coming for doing it.

 

If Revenge worked how it should. it would only kill people who are not paying enough attention.

 

Simple tip: If you get killed by revenge, Aim at that player from a distance for the rest of the game.

I get annoyed when every now and then I pick up a dropped weapon instead of the Revenge grenade. Maybe I'm doing something wrong...

The only time I will ever use Revenge is to level it up because I want all gold boosters and even then I will feel guilty about it.

If Revenge didn't take advantage of crappy weapon/throwback priorities, lag and long stealth animations, I'm okay with it.

 

I mean, getting killed by a revenge nade while LAGGING? Hell no. You're taking advantage of this laggy game. Don't be that guy.

 

If the game didn't lag and I got killed by Revenge, I take full responsibility. I know when I walked in on that one, and it would be my fault for not being aware of the environment. Otherwise, you're just another guy who just loves free kills.

Exactly. There's a difference when I happen to not see it coming (and I'll applaud that, since you caught a really paranoid player off-guard).

But lagkill? Hell no.
