An idea for stupid teamates

9 replies 205 views Edited Aug 25, 2012

Make it so that when you get killed by a teamate, it doesn't count towards your deaths on the scoreboard.

While you're at it, how about making it that the random removals don't count towards your losses either?

how about they just make grenades not effect teamates... ._. I have no idea why they didn't do this unless friendly fire was on all the way

What would be next though? If you kill your self it doesn't count? Or how about not counting your death if you got killed by a power weapon?

No, if you die, it should count regardless of how you died. There's things people could do to exploit and win games by removing team kills.

But, if anything is to be done, just remove stats all together .

What exactly doesn't make sense? I'm saying that if they were do this, people would continue to ask for other things to not count for death statistics. And it could also be used to get spawn advantages.

The only thing that shouldn't be counted asa  death is getting killed by a teamate, because you have absolutley no way of preventing that. If a teamate, kills you with an RPG, how are you going to stop that? Killing yourself or getting killed by a power weapon SHOULD be counted as a death, because you are able to prevent. It's your own fault for killing yourself, and getting killed by a power weapon is a part of the game.

How about when a teammate kils you, both of you get a death added, rather than just the person that died.

You can't prevent your self from dying when someone on the other team uses the RPG! kickback either, you can only hope they don't jump or have an awful aim. Say me and my friend are running out of ammo, neither of us care about streak medals, I'll throw a nade at him, his revenge will kill me, this way we never run out of ammo and we don't get any loss from it. Heck, I already blow myself up in Plunder/Objective if I want to swap guns. If they had just made power weapons pick ups only, and hadn't added Quick Boom and other grenade kickbacks, there would have been a huge decrease in team kills. Those things are the real issue.
