First of all, sorry for my english...


I really think that deflect players it's a useful and strategic resource on a dodgeball game. But one of the most frequently complaints on my server it's about some people that completely forget about the game and start pushing players around the map. I have this problem mostly on tfdb_tennis and tfdb_castle (on corners), but it can be worse depending on the map or the dodgeball setup of each server.

That's why i thought to give damage to a player each time that he deflects another player. I'm not sure if this is even possible but i just want to force people to use this resource more wisely, instead of just disable the feature.

A cvar like sm_dodgeball_deflect_players_damage would be awesome. 0 to disable it and any higher value would be the damage made by each deflect.

This is possible, I'd need to revert one of the changes made in a recent update, but I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing since I think people preferred how it was before.

I'm not sure hurting them is the best course of action though, we can always try it and see.

I thought about ammo penalty too, but i guess that people usually care more about life than ammo. But i can't think in anything else... any thoughts ?

Oh, and really thanks for the answer!

I've used goomba stomp on my server. My players seem to enjoy pushing one another up into the air in the corners. Eventually, they miss and are stomped. Gets a laugh for the server and usually ends that player air blasting too.

Thanks for the tip!

I'm using goomba for a few weeks now, but in my case the situation haven't changed. In the beginning, it worked (with some laughs too), but now... They just don't care and some of them push players up to get stomped instead of playing the game.
