For the LOVE OF GOD, ftk!

Guys,

If you're in game, and you get TKed, and it's unintentional, hit the ~ (tilde) key to drop down the console, and type:

ftk

Then hit Enter. Hit the ~ (tilde) key again, to make the console go away.

If you have the time, tell the player you ftked them, and if anyone asks, "DO I just say it in chat, does it work that way," tell them no, and explain how to do it.

As far as I can tell you still take a loss of score but it doesn't make your spawntime 1.5 times as long.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming. Thank you.

PTK is on by default, if you do nothing. That's why it's so important that you do it if it's a forgivable offense.

I'm glad you posted this swanny...I use this all of the time. There are many cases where "I" am to blame for myself getting tkd. Why should the other player pay a spawn penalty, when it takes a couple of seconds to ftk...of course.

As far as PTK, I will type that in chat to let the other player know that I didn't like the TK even though to spawn penalty is automatic...Occasionally, I will get a "why did you ptk me you !@#$%*@...I just smile.

i ftk for most everyone, except those who do it intentionally....how ever i will admit, that i give the person 10 seconds to say sorry for the tk...if they dont i do not ftk...of course it all depends on the circumstances at the time

I admit, an apology does factor into whether or not I drop the console down; regs usually get the benefit of the doubt. What I know is sometimes people don't realize they've TKed; it's happened to me PLENTY of times - I die, have a long spawn time, and realize I must've. I send out a "who did I TK?" message, and "Sorry about that, whoever it was - I didn't know," as well.

Swanny, can I ftk myself with the console command if, as is SOP for me lol, I fly into my own bombs on NFZ or when hunting tanks, I aim, dive for cover, THEN fire?

In a word, is there a console command for fstk? (s= stupid, silly, self ; your choice)

geez and all this time I thought it meant- F (the) tk ... :o
I do get a few tks when I'm doing my thing in shilka ...what I want U guyz to understand is that I do use the mini map in shilka but I have it set on the lowest resolution ... so I can see enemy air blips from the furthest distance possible however it makes it a lil dicey discerning mixed ground targets in close combat.
the one circumstance that galls me is when I'm repairing my tank and a teammate blows up the empty tank ... and me too! this is one reason I don't use TS ... you all think I get it bad in radio chat ... I was notorious ion UG clan TS for unleashing verbal abuse

Dont really care if ppl ftk me or not. Even though its not intentional I'll take the hit for being a dumbass. Most of my tks are on myself anyway, point blank rpg shots sting a bit. I'm also a klutz and regularly fall off mountins, stairs, bldgs, etc. LOL

Props to thinking the better of people. Thinking that maybe more that 1 in 10 may actually use the ftk command. If your someone I recognize and your not a tard (short list) I'll forgive a tk. Otherwise...if there was only an asshat command that would send a bolt of electricity down the phone line to "condition" the little wankers.

I try to say sorry when I tk someone but I don't expect to be forgiven...lately guys keep running through my field of fire. One game I think I tk'd the same guy 3 times and in the same way. I'd engage and he'd run in front of me, argh!

To all you arty guys, please please use your minimap. There are tks and then there are tks. The worse ones are when you are taking a flag and you get naded or blown to bits by long range artillery. I don't know what the deal is but they always have to get in one last round...or they don't stop untill they kill a teammate.

Have you ever considered turning kickback on? It could be on a low setting...just a little reminder.

And Swanny gets a double teabag LOL

I had to leave the other night because of getting tk'd. Was happening constantly for 5 or 6 maps in a row and I was just getting pissed. Dont think any were intentional but most were players being stupid.

Oh, crap!

I had no idea EA117's default was ptk. I remember playing on the WOLF servers for Forgotten Hope, it was a great server, but you had to remember that the default was a ptk. Gah, apologies to anyone that I might've ptk'ed unknowingly, I had no idea.

So typing 'ftk' or '!ftk' on the regular chat won't forgive a TK? Do you have to go to console?
