There have been complaints of people people in LOB doing annoying things that have become worthy of making a hit list for. (See [sub]http://fora.loa.la/index.php?topic=1301.0[/sub]), like teaming, camping, spawn killing, type killing, "____ CLASS IS OP", and (even though there is no legitimate solution to this) the occasional "Stop killing me and let me win, being good at the game is op and unfair". Back in the olden days of BM2, (battle manager 2, for those of you who are 7 and/or weren't around at the time) there was this wonderful little plugin called camper alert. It would point everyone's compasses to where the camper was, spawn a primed TNT above them, and display a message on everyone else's screen that told them to go fuck dat camper up. Nobody complained about camper alert (except campers), and many of us were sad to see it go, when LOB came around. In modern day LOB, the discouragement of things like that no longer exists and is in fact, viewed as unbalanced and OP. Along with there being no camper alert, there is a number of new classes that easily encourage camping. To name a few, engineer, necromancer, and worst of all, DJ. Teaming is just as much of an issue as camping, and was never discouraged. It takes on a different level of assholery, because even certain players who were feared in the days of old, would rely on teaming to be "the best" *cough*AA*cough*. There are also many famous minecrafters who will show themselves teaming on other servers, and it is an instinct for people who invite their friends to the server. Type killing is not as much of a problem as the first two mentioned, but it is annoying. Same goes with spawn killing. Non-Donors complaining about classes, is something that needs to be changed as well. _______________________________________________________________________________________________ Solutions I have thought of: The solution to camping would at it's best, be to simply re-implement camper alert. Teaming, should have a similar alert system, checking for players who are near each other for long periods of time, but not attacking each other, or attacking the same people. Lightning strikes following them around as a penalty would be entertaining. As for type killing, there is nothing major that should be done. Having 3 dots appear above a players head when they are typing will prevent players from doing it accidentally, but rarely stop people from taking advantage of it. Spawn killing can be prevented by simpler things, like a 5 second immunity after spawning, or things like that. It will also prevent people from spawning in lava, on those types of maps. Noobs complaining about donor classes being OP, is an easy solution. Cobi recently considered letting non-donors in LOA tpa with the cost of 16 diamonds. Maybe if a non-donor wins _____ battles, they can use a VIP class for 1 or 2 battles, or something of the sort. Just an idea.
