GD I love this game. GD I hate EA.
Anyway, the auto ability to just punish ppl for the TK stuff is got to be the most annoying thing I've encountered. Ppl want so much realism, but they sufficed for being able to punish/kick people for how the game(game!) "should" be real. Anyway...not going to debate this, rather, bitch, cause I'm in a damned bitchy mood.
And I quote...http://www.shackbattles.com/wiki/index.php/BF2:Friendly_Fire
Sometimes teammates will have their names appear above them in red onscreen. Don't go by the red name color. Go by the player model. USMC have light-colored uniforms. MEC have a darker, camo-striped looking sort of uniform. At first they look very similar, but after playing a bit it's fairly easy to tell them apart. If you start shooting someone with a red name and a teammate yells at you to stop, then stop. You've probably hit the bug. It's pretty common, unfortunately. This bug can even make people show up on the wrong side of the scoreboard, so the player model method is probably the only way to be sure.
Actually, that's not true. In extreme cases, other bugs may even trigger the wrong player models, or else inaccurate detection of teamkills. However, during normal play, watching the model is probably good enough.
This bug can also occur in reverse: Enemies will appear as teammates, or even squadmates. Killing them triggers a [teamkills] message, but points are not deducted from your teamplay score. Also, like teammates, the nametags of enemies affected by this bug will be visible through walls!
A workabout to this bug is to exit the game by pressing ESC and then reentering the game (again ESC).
How perfectly accurate this fellas statements are I can't attest to, but damn if this bug isn't annoying as hell. Especially when there is enough action on a screen that red versus blue is the best thing you got to tell friend from foe. For all those reading this, PLEASE....PLEASE..... I myself, and others, LOVE this game, even broken, and we want to have "FUN", and earn our ranks, and it's tough on our stats when we get punished and kicked for TK that we never intended, and this goes for you out there that run across those of us already proned laying cover fire. Don't run in front of moving cars, yes you can respawn in games unlike RL, but the ability to punish ME for your stupidity has gotten out of hand.
Anyway, my point is....GD EA, how can you release a "shootem up game" where you can't tell the good guys from the bad guys. GD GD GD you f*cking idiots.
Don't get me started on the vehicle killing bugs........
(sorry all your normal BNs readers...I had to let that out, it's not directed at any one person[which is a good thing, cause the world is my audience here hehe])
