dead game (i wonder why)

Discussion in 'Death Tag' started by rray, Nov 2, 2020.

  1. Actually, DT is more alive now than it has been in months. There's a server everyday that always reaches atleast 18 players at some point compared to back when me and pucro would have to sit in lobbies to get a 9 player game that dies in 30 minutes. It's certainly not as alive as it was earlier in April-June but claiming it's as dead as having a 15 player lobby per week is very farfetched.

    Also, not everyone hates the new teaming rule. Sure, it doesn't prevent people from teaming entirely but it definitely decreases it. The fact that someone could now get you punished by clipping you teaming with a chaser/boosting that chaser introduces a new fear that acts to stem mass-teaming. Not to mention that whenever a mod joins a server, a lot of people are scared to be caught teaming (he does take action, recently someone got banned for something along the lines of "repetitively ignoring the same player" aka teaming). Also you can still stay friends with someone without teaming with them in game.

    But OP does have a point that there are definitely teamers who very obviously team that get away scot free. Some people team with nearly the whole server and all the chasers have to do is not approach their friend and they can farm wins for days. This kind of teaming is extremely hard to punish though because you don't know for sure if the chaser is just interested in another runner or actually teaming with the mass-teamer. The only way I see this problem being dealt with is to punish the mass-teaming runner as opposed to the chasers.

    With all due respect, this sounds more of a rant than a well thought out post.

  5. I never was a fan of DT, however, sometimes my friends and I have played DT in MPS' occasionally.

  6. I never teamed before, but the game is unwinnable if you don't....I play on alts occasionally, and there's always that one person who doesn't get chased. For example, GiuliaSL could afk in DT and win 3/4 of her games. Come DT someday if there even is a lobby and spec and you'll see the number of people that still team.

  7. She doesn't play anymore, but yea there are certain people who can afk a whole round and go unscathed

  8. Does Giulia team?

  9. Then those players should get punished. Cross teaming absolutely ruined what was otherwise a pretty fun game, it definitely deserves to stay punishable.

  10. How did that contribute to the discussion in any way

    But while we are there, i occasionally played DT like 4 years ago. I played maybe liek 20 rounds all together.

  11. In a way it's cemented in the game's culture and community as a whole. Though I don't like mass teaming, I feel like there is too little moderation to even consider it a serious rule

  12. I've always felt that Death Tag is just, a big fiesta. I oftentimes see that people are teaming and like, "chasers" aren't killing specific players and allowing specific players to win, etc. And then I'm not sure if they changed this rule, but I remember reading that using the Traitor kit to boost other players into specific spots wasn't allowed. There's a lot of chances for players to cross-team and do whatever, go against what the game was made for.

    But the chill hours in DT will be remembered, in all honesty.

  13. Heyhey! :3

    I'm sorry that you feel this way about the way death tag has been evolving throughout the future. I suggest maybe bringing ideas up to the staff team or giving some constructive criticism than just complaining here. I do suggest maybe talking to a member of the Gl team directly to get your point across. I obviously feel that you are frustrated seeing as you enjoyed the game and no doubt I would be too. but try making valid/improving points than just stating bad things

    Have a wonderful day!

  14. Yeah and honestly the ban length is a joke. You want people to stop teaming? Make it serious. Don’t give a shy ban of 2.6 minutes. As crazy as it sounds you should treat it as a 2 week ban right from the get go and every offence after is 1 month. I recently had my account compromised on the other server and my appeal was accepted and I still had to wait 30 days to play on it again. This makes it feel more serious. No one cares if you’re banned 120 seconds for teaming considering how many alts most people have.

    People are so vocal about the toxicity in death tag and I can guarantee that this can be used as “self moderation.” I don’t care if it seems lifeless but personally if there’s someone being extremely annoying and toxic to me and I have a clip of them teaming I’m definitely gonna report them. And there’s this one mod on death tag all the time all he has to do is enter the game consecutively for a few days in vanish and ban some people for cross teaming and every day after players are gonna think he’s still logging in and in vanish and they’d be too scared to team(if the punishment is more severe) when in reality he’s not online. This may sound like some far fetched psychological trick but I think it would work. Especially these two methods together of lengthening the punishment and having the mod vanish for a few days.

  15. Thankful that there are people like you who serve as role models, people who don't team and make the dt community a much better space!
