    I played some TDM yesterday...when I played Tempest there was some guy who was constantly camping the shield belt.....

    Problem was, while standing on the place where the SB respawns he always started chatting with a friend....when you attacked this guy you could expect a lot of flaming because I was 'typekilling' ......this guy did this the whole match, and when it was finished ( I won :)) I got another load of flammage for no apparent reason....

    This guy was from a clan called {FRE/\|<$},which is 1337 for 'freaks'.....I think it wasn't lame to kill this guy everytime I saw him 'typecamping'.......what do you think?

    TDM should be treated like CTF or DOM. There is no camping, only defending/controlling an area. There is no typekilling, only blowing ppl away while they communicate with their team.

    Trying to use typing as an excuse to hold off attackers while you camp a power-up is really lame :)

    i stopped beeing nice to typers, cuz next time you start typing, they often frag you as graditude of not fragging them.
    And specially when they start to talk where the Items lies, thats just for me an easy kill.
    If you don't want to play and chat, use IRC, thats where that thingy is added for in the first place, and if you have to chat in UT self, do it with feigh deadth or so, in a corner, or on a out-of-the-side place, but not on a shieldbeld.

    So FRAG THEM :D

    What I do/did

    I used to face a wall in a corner when I wanted to type. I figured no one would be lame enough to kill me when I did that. But.. I was wrong :(

    Now I only talk/type when I am dead.

    I rarely speak in UT TDM, I speak in CTF to coordinate defense efforts (go right, no the OTHER right, stop! they're coming!) but not in TDM, we just use a squad tactics and know it by heart, we slowly move through a level, 1 point, 1 rear, 1 heavy weapon ('deemer if possible) and 1-4 "shooters" with rippers or Plasma rifles

    Hehehe.......someone here hasn't played the Smileys in TDM yet.

    In TDM, you gotta get the frags any way you can. So long as it isn't outright cheating, anything is acceptable.

    And if the motherf*cker stops to type, frag his ass anyway. It's his own fault.

    I agree with JuiceEggsMcKenna. No typekilling, just blowing them away while they talk. :D

    If you see me typing in a game, which ranges from rare/often depending on how many buddies are in the same game, feel free to shoot me, I'm past caring! :D

    If you see me in UT...

    Frag me.

    If you see me chatting in UT,

    Frag me.

    If you see me chatting while facing a wall,

    Frag me.

    If you see me chatting while feigning death,

    Frag me.

    If you see me chatting while standing near a powerup,

    Frag me and take the powerup.

    If you see me chatting while holding the flag,

    Telefrag me, so you automatically return your flag.

    Believe me, I will do the same to you without a second of hesitation.

    If someone complains that you typekilled him, give him this link. http://www.mirc.com

    LOL Boom!

    hehehe



    There IS however, one time when I will not typekill. If I started the conversation. But then I frequently type while moving, we mouserunners can do that. I can't like....type the Declaration of Independence or anything but if I'm on a map I know well, and I know my way is clear down that hallway, I will take my fingers off my strafe keys and type a one-handed "Heya SoandSo" or a one handed "Nice One!". If I have done that, and I round the corner to see the person I spoke to with his hand to his ear, I will never ever shoot at him. I'll blow myself up with those loaded rockets before I'll typekill him. I said something, he was replying.

    But then I'm so l33t I can afford to lose the frag ;)

    ?!? I thought I was the only PuF who uses his mouse for movement....?

    Everyone says it sux.....but I think it works fine, especially if you have 6 buttons on it :).....this way I can use my left hand for my very important binds like 'Hahaha' and 'That had to hurt' (couldn't live without those).......

    Heck! after reading Troll's message I may bind my wheel buton (depressing the wheel) to jump, that way with my mouse I can run shoot and jump while typing the Declaration of Independence with the left hand!!!!!

    "When in the course of human events it becomes necessary...."

    By the way, my opinion, casual to even semi-serious 1v1 matches RARE and OCCAISIONAL chatting can be looked over (I mean if they chat everytime you walk into the same room, shoot 'em). Sometimes playing RA matches I'll see the person typing and I'll run somehwere else, BUT ONLY if I know the person. If not, I'll frag 'em and chalk it up to an "accident," after all UT doesn't have the BIG BLUE BUBBLE BALOON that q3a does.

    There's no real excuse for sitting there just cause your talking, I'm not sure but i though you could still shoot while typing, so shoot whoever comes in.
