Answered Blocking T's as a T

    This seems like a massive oversight of a rule that can only be abused, but since you aren't allowed to kill a T for blocking you in a situation that would kill you if they didn't move if you are also a T, does that mean the T who blocked you committed RDM when you subsequently die? The way the rule work now, it seems like a way for a T to kill another T with impunity, so long as they didn't activate the object of your demise.

    Also, bonus points if anyone can explain to me why you aren't allowed to kill a fellow T who is trapping you in the doorway of an incoming elevator, or in a room that's on fire, or any other situation where killing them is your only means of escaping certain death.

    This is part of our longstanding rule that traitors can't kill traitors. The only exception in this is in immediate self-defense.


    We do realize it's a bit contradictory within our other rules- but it's been a long standing argument that there has never been an agreement between staff, or the community, which has led us to stick with the rule that we already have.

    If you have issues with a T-buddy blocking you and getting you killed as a result, then please report it to staff and they can deal with it properly.

    Thanks for the question!

    So it's not RDM to block your T-buddy in a place you know they will die? Strictly speaking. (Toxic Gameplay is a given)

    Also, wouldn't 'Killing someone putting you in harms way to escape said harm' be classified as 'Self defense?'

    If a t-buddy blocks you with a C4/map hazard/etc and you die as a result, it's RDM and you can be slayed for it.

    For self-defense, it doesn't really fit neatly because for self-defense, they need to be directly attacking you.

    Some of my fellow colleagues have asked that we rediscuss this, and we will, if there's an update it'll be posted in the change logs on the rules. For now though, this is the verdict on this.
