then when someone dies they gain no power making it harder for pl to go up. The pros will not do this cause they care about score

Agreed. Let them do it. It only hurts them and helps you. Let them play there pitiful game of suicide. They do not realize what they are doing.

how is it *** or "gaay" as you put it? do you know the definition of ***? brightly colored, homosexual, or cheerful. from your sentence it doesnt seem like you mean killing yourself is cheerful, it cant be brightly colored and it cant be homosexual, so dont use that word in an immature way and in a way that makes no sense.

Well, unfortunately, kill is a needed command!! It can be useful somtimes if u find ureself stuck somewhere and u cant move!! Altho, to all the people who use it out there to benefit their powerlevel, that's just dumb!! It will never make that person better at the game!! They only do it, cuz they just wouldnt stand a chance normally!!

I think "kill" should be kept around since it is needed, but the ESF team should somehow find a way to not let the powerlevel rise when people do kill themselves.

Why? Probably because ignorance is not a good thing. But seeing as that is entirely off topic I won't bother.

I am personally of the school that "score" is not an indication of skill. Abstract numbers do not really represent someone's talent in any game, because in many cases here will always be some unforseen flaw that can be exploited to increase numbers. For example I was playing today and some guy hid in a clipping error in one of the stages and kept spirit bombing people into oblivion. Certainly his 48 and 7 score made him feel good, but the rest of us didn't think of him as "skilled." But that said I agree that there should be some kind of penalty for repeated suicides. I'm not sure how realistic that would be from a coding standpoint, but maybe you could turn into a Buu-esque chocolate candy if you commit say 5 suicides in one minute. And you were stuck that way for 5 minutes.

we really don't care for your definition. If I where to say something like "This server is gáy" you know very well how people use the word "gáy" these days it would be considered "this server sucks". Dont be a moron.

*** is colloquially (spell?) used for the same meaning as "stupid". it's like "gammon" (said in australia, i think it came from the aborigines originally). don't be so stupid to abuse people over words they use.

and i agree - it's GAAY if people are /kill ing themselves to get power.

PS: and about a penalty idea for people that do it - maybe instead of keeping them out of the game, make them move REALLY slow and be REALLY weak for some time (say, until they are killed 5 times) and give them a different colour diamond over their head so everyone will know that they are a /kill lamer! hehe

haveing no kill in console

Pros

- cannot kill yourself when low on life
- people cannot kill themselves before ur about to own them

Cons

- If u get stuck in a wall, or a bug, you cannot kill yourself, but most of the time u can teleport out of bugs

i think Kill should be taken away

how am i a moron for using a word like it should be? you guys are morons for using a word that doesnt even mean whatt you use it as. and i care becasue usually the only people that use "gaay" are mostly americans and it makes other countries look at us as homophobic and immature. not only other countries but people who are mature enough to not use that word in bad conotation will not take you seriously. whenever someone uses that word like that i picture a 12 year old kid sitting as his computer typing it thinking hes cool for using that word.

In that post was...

Flameing of users, saying they are 12, and morons

flameing the whole of the USA;/

And your saying YOU are mature? I have seen you flame in most of your newer posts, so you are in no fit state too tell someone he is a moron, if someone says Gaay and you dont like it, ignore the post, dont feel the need to flame them, or in fact, a whole country.:S
