This topic comes up often.

Let's have an open discussion, where each might state their opinion of any proposed solution. This is a gaming group and we play this game we all love and enjoy, most of the time...

It seems like I used to play on a server where you couldn't take main. You could get by the flag but nothing would change. That is a possible "programming" solution.

We could have a rule that there is no main raping by anything that flies at any time. This would allow players to drive tanks into main, boats to main, etc. (This wouldn't solve the need for admin intervention to punish those who violate the rules).

I have heard the arguments, well if a team can't keep more than one flag, they deserve it. I don't agree. You put the best players of the game on the same team and the underdog is toast. It leads to players circling main in choppers killing players spawning over and over. This frustrates them. They go spectate; don't spawn or leave the server. Players with honor and respect hold back and hang out waiting for the team to get air going so they can fight in the air.

I don't know that any part of this game has caused more angst than main attacks.

I support a rule that players may not attack main by air at any time. Mains may be taken but only ground. This will stop players from circling main with choppers spawn killing.

Thank you for allowing me to express my opinion. I would like to hear your opinion and please do so without attacking mine. I'll read and fairly consider your point of view.

If you can do so, without personal attacks, it would be nice to have an open discussion on a topic of interest.

We may never know a lot of things but it's not because anyone or anything is suppressing comments or thoughts from anyone here.
I think it's very childish to keep pushing conspiracy theories that people are being bullied and threatened as of now if they say something on the forum when you have zero proof.

Let's move on from this and quit saying we don't know when we do. Hinting, implying, or starting rumors that this happening is nonsense. These threads-like others have a ton of feedback and a chunk of the community has not lost it identity and running around scared just because Pinky says it's so. :rolleyes: I find it comical that you have quit this community so many times over the years because it wasn't what you wanted, rules didn't align with you, or map rotations. And in the end, you were given chance after chance to come back after you quit abruptly in disgust each time. Now, you are worried people haven't said what they need to say and not based on feedback from these people, or Ice, a database dump, or a poll, just your assumption.

The members that chime in here are relevant, current, and present. Members that chose not to comment have a choice as in any open forum.

Take a chill pill Orange. You have posted twice, basically attacking me, when I didn't post a response between yours. Odd. Interesting. This topic is about main taking and should a rule be considered about that. For some reason, you are interested in making this about me.

I don't give a rat's ass if there is rule or not, I'm just trying to keep players playing the game. Players leave the server when rape takes place. Perhaps asking players to vote on the topic.

I'm not upset or attacking you, but I do think it's very odd and that it seems based on your ongoing obsession with some shadow conspiracy that is floating over members' heads preventing them from making a simple comment. While on the other hand you have for years posted ongoing thousands of tweaks and complaints of what you want while leaving and coming back and leaving, with demands if changes arent made you will leave for good. Now saying there are bullies out there preventing people from commenting. And at the same time, in your recent comeback to the server, you hid your identity with a false name. It all seems odd to me coming from you. If you didn't have the history and I didn't know all this I would not be commenting on this at all. You don't consider someone knowing your history and antics, hiding under false names, and now saying bullies are running out players from the forum seems a little stretch. I won't make another comment about the bullies doing their business again. Just found it odd you keep throwing it out there.
