Suicides! My Pet Peeve

Suicides! My Pet Peeve
Well folks, I was hoping it would be a less of a problem in BEO2, but I think it's safe to say I was kidding myself!



One of the most annoying problems I experienced in BEO1 was the common practice of "suiciding" right before the opposing team could get the kill.

I will be the first to admit that even I have engaged in this tactic a handful of times, albeit only when I felt like I was "cheated"...but nonetheless it is a huge disrespect to the other player and I believe it should come with consequences.


I'm sure the community can come up with something better, but here is my suggestion to offset this issue:

- a suicide will result in a -1 to the reputation of the egg in question (rep points can be gained easily, so the accidental suicide won't be too big of a problem)

- a suicide will give the "kill" to the last player who damaged the egg in question: I am most adamant about this being implemented, as I cannot tell you how many kills I have lost due to suiciders.


Cheers guys.

RE: Suicides! My Pet Peeve
What if you could only hurt yourself down to 1 health? So you could never actually kill yourself. Might be a solution?

LOVE the idea Rob, I knew there would be a more elegant solution.

RE: Suicides! My Pet Peeve
Although... actually I'm not sure that does work in all cases. For example what if a player accidentally suicides as he is getting the game winning kill? If his health can only go down to 1 then he gets a cheap win when it should have been tied.

RE: Suicides! My Pet Peeve
Good point, I hadn't considered that.


Would it be possible to add that situation into the code? Whereby if you win the game with a suicide, it counts as a draw?

RE: Suicides! My Pet Peeve
I still feel like the best solution here was one of Venom's original suggestions. Just let the kill go to the last player who dealt damage to the suicide-er. I really don't see any loopholes or flaws.

RE: Suicides! My Pet Peeve
Yeah I agree and I think that's the one we'll go with. I'll try and get that implemented today.

I'm sure this will be a great move for the game; Thank-you Rob, and Venom!
