How about Flashpoint use the approach the Air Warrior series used for friendly fire?

After a person shot down 5 planes he would recieve "rubber" bullets for 24 hours, leaving him with nothing to kill another plane with.

I do think that without someone watching the MP games TKers will exsist. There's no real "automatic" way to get rid of them, they'll always figure a way around it.

There is one good way of hunting down PK'ers and accidental PK'ers. Force people to register with hosts for MP games. They have to give non-fake email addresses (like you have to give your earthlink or att etc and no yahoo etc) and then --provided that the game will count FF's- you can suspend user gaming accounts or access if they accumulate too many FF's in a row, or in a certain amount of time.

I agree that AW has a good system for this. However, we must be a bit more understanding of accidental FF. It happens in REAL war (I think we killed more of our own in the GUlf then the enemy did). So there has to be a tollerance for it to an extent (in Steel Beasts one often kills a friendly in the heat of battle..).

Perhaps a cool-down period for PK'ers is needed. You are suspended from one round (like in CS) or game. Or we might create war "leagues" where points are given for kills and accomplished goals and VERY negative points are given for FF (say you get 20 points for saving your squad from imminent death, but you get -40 for FF).

Also, it was not JUST targeted at you or your post. Don't flatter yourself so much.

The way you worded this RazorBack it sounds like you are calling me an idiot that doesn't know the difference. Maybe it is because you are ignorant and didn't fully comprehend what I wrote in my original post. It would be good if you read my post a second time because you obviously do not understand.

I am not out to prove anything to anybody, and I am especially not trying to prove anything to a teenager Razor.

All right gentlemen. This thread seems to be heading south.

The subject of TKing is valid and there are several ways to deal with it. Some I personally like more than others (I like the more than 2 FF kills in a game and you suffer a 'severe' penalty from your side-lets face it, you kill a couple of your buddies and you will definatly hear about it when the MP's are putting the cuffs behind you).

I don't think Razorback meant anything when he stated what he said, at least I didn't take that as something directed at anyone personal. I agree that hopefully there will be a way to have no icons available, it would make the game a lot harder that is for sure.

Mekhazzio, if you don't like the demo, then don't play it. Everyone here has pretty much figured out right away that you don't like it and anything else you post at this point is just inflammatory. If you are just posting to incite something, please post somewhere else. I don't think the game is realistic, I don't want realistic, I have done realistic and realistic sucks.

Excuse me? How am I inciting anything? Have you ever actually played SB with Razorback?

Teenager? Hey man.. if that's the best you can come up with then so be it. I'm not going to make it a point to curb my language so your feelings don't get hurt bub. You will have to get over the fact that you think people are insinuating idiocy upon you.

As for Mekh... he should have said "Have you ever played SB with Razorback while Phoenix and I are in the game?"

Ya see... I just don't take too well to their "We know everything about anything and you don't know jack unless you are like us and love dragons."

I don't dislike them fellas.. I just think they is momo's... and no one ever went to jail for being a momo. ;O)

And yes... I did have a problem with FF back in the day.. but that all stopped once I started using the Leo's. I have a much better tendancy to kill US equipment!

Whatever dude. I'll do my thing, you do yours, just don't send any comments in my direction because, needless to say, I don't like you. Simple as that.

As for Tom Cofield, I agree, this thread is certainly headed south. One thing though, we are all different, and I took Razor's comment one way, you took it another. He is being offensive and impolite and I don't have time for it.
