sparrow attack

Post by aimer »

Another annoying behaviour that some players have started doing recently is reconnecting to avoid being frozen once killed.

Sparrow attack is a fine example of this clever strategy as you can see from the screenshots.

The annoying part is not really avoiding being frozen as the guy makes sure he is an easy target to kill anyway. The problem is that this unbalances teams when other players connect in the meantime or if he happens to reconnect just before the round is over.

Plus this happens every single time he is killed rather than once in a while so he performs this trick several times per game unfortunately.

I thought there was a 1 min limit to stop players from reconnecting immediately, has it been removed?

yes there's however this guy seems to be jumping connections and servers just to skip the 20 secs average frozen time (approx) which it doesn't even make sense in my opinion. I placed a one day ban now however the problem is likely to persist so I will also randomly kick him/ban him a bunch of times whenever I come across him.

thanks for report mate

Thanks, but i think he hasn't got the message yet.

It's a bit ridiculous since he dies every 10 secs, so i managed to kill him 3-4 times in the same round today and he did the same yesterday with other people noticing the behaviour.
