Typing Spec is a sexy beast in console will also give you 2 extra points :).

Yeah, I know how to open the console and I understand Swanny said type it in the console. My question is does ftk work in regular chat, either with or without a ! prefix.

Just typing ftk or !ftk in regular chat will not work. It only works in console.

And here I was thinking that ftk was just a shorthand "we're cool, brah". I shall use ftk in the console from now on.

I'm not sure, but I think ftk also doesn't count the points against the auto-kick timer. Lets you spread the friend-flattening even more..as long as your forgiven. ;-)

I have an idea on this ... considering most of us do FTK there are plenty that do not. Is there a way to reverse it. Instead of typing in ftk type in ptk and have TK forgiven automatically. I do understand the point of having auto ptk on but, as you all know it sucks when you get the accidental tk and that person says ftk but does not know how to type it in the console even though it has been explained.

We've had it both ways in the past. The same people that don't know how to put in an ftk don't know how to out in a ptk.

That means that when there is an ahole running rampant on the server, if they keep TKing the guy that doesn't know how to do it, the ahole never leaves.

The way it is now, -5 means "see ya."

Makes sence Swanny just sucks when you can't see a non FTK'er because he is hidden by the flag on the mini map and he says "ftk" on chat but then you still end up with a 15 + second spawn. But I am assuming that may be part of the reason you made this thread to begin with.

Good lord RP .. did it take you that long to read it .... Its been a month :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hey Swanny I just thought of something ... even with an FTK you still get the -2 points so if some douche comes on would they still not get the -2 with autoFTK on??? Which would still mean he/she would be kicked after -5 and then of course banned after so many auto kicks. Only reason I ask is 1 i just thought of that after Rick brought up an old topic :P :lol: and I know many people like you and I get sick of not getting the ftk when it was a complete accident or the other persons fault all together. Lets say someone runs over a mine that we have had laid out for a long time. They get the little icon warning them of friendly mines, still run over the mine and no sorry no nothing. Then of course I (we) get a 20 second + spawn and a -2 in our score. I could care less about the score as I dont tk enough to get to -5 its just the time. ;)

Well, again, unless someone is a complete tool you'r eonly taking the time hit because they don't know how to ftk. As I said before, if a troll hits the server those same people won't know how to ptk to get rid of him.

It's the lesser of two evils, I think.

I've been kicked 1 too many times with 2 mins left on map for playing defense, and having tks either by team mates running over visible ass mines, or blowing up enemy spawn truck w a mine while they are stealing our flag and collateral damage kills team mates. Like everyone else I play for fun, and of course to kill a bunch and get high points, just tired of getting kicked while being at the top with a few mins to go in the round, and even more tired at getting mad for it. I hope they reconsider the automatic PTK and leave it up to the players to decide. Most times people say sorry and admit its their faut you tkd them, but they dont know how to FTK, and we pay for it.

The problem is that I'm sure close to 75% of people that play this game have no clue how to actually use the ftk thing..

Yea Rye theres lots of cool ppl at the server and on TS, and alot of us know how to use ftk and do so, but like fluffy says I think more dont know. Maybe if it does stay in the server as automatic PTK it would be a good idea to have a grey message pop up once in a while on how to use it correctly. Last night I had 2-3 when I told myself to stop guarding the flag, but its what I like to do because if not a map like al nas gets over with very fast especially if Trustno1 is on the other team, so with like 2 mins left he made a run and I went over and put a mine in front of him. It makes me be like ok 2-3 tks, no more teamwork, just run and gun and get a few kills. its cool to stick around ur team and heal them and vehicles but sometimes puts you in a tough spot.

Mines are a pain. But what I try to do is type that mines are laid and where they are a few times so I get the "roger that" a couple of times. But it can bite you on the ass mist times. Maybe if we can make them neon pink it would help.....oh wait. Nighty would use them for pasties.

Neon would be great Sarge, youd be surprised how many times I type where they are and call out "Ive spotted mines over here!" or "its te cha fenua!" and often have the same guy hit them twice :29:
