What do you guys think?

  1. Add it!

  2. This is stupid.

  1. So obviously this is a suggestion for a new fun round.

    In this fun round you are given either frags or incendiaries.

    You may only hold one grenade at a time, and you receive one every 10 seconds. (To reduce the utter spam of tons of grenades)

    You kill other players with the grenades, and the last man standing wins. (DUH)

    You can kill yourself with your own grenades. (Not recommended)

    What do you guys think?

    If the constant explosions wouldn't kill the server, I would +1

    this would kill the server -1 they take enough abuse already

    This would probably kill the server. The amount of bandwidth this game would cost a full server would probably cause it to crash. Unless someone has technical knowledge on how this would work without crashing the server, I think it's a bad idea.

  5. The idea of server crashes did cross my mind when writing the suggestion, but I actually don't think it would crash the servers, they have been known to run decently even with DDOSers, I don't think a few grenades would be any worse.
    However, as I am not all that knowledgeable about this sort of thing, maybe @Highwon could confirm if it would or wouldn't.

    I know my way with technology @nickmain1999 that's why I gave this a -1

    also this server does get ddosed a bit and we don't have much luck against them usually so the servers would crash with grenade wars

    2 Lions crashed the server

    I think we can't handle this much stress

    How about we receive an answer from someone who can truly answer this question? You may know your technology, but someone from upper management should answer this just to confirm...

    I find this idea to be brilliant if employed and should be used if the servers don't start lagging/crashing like a senior citizen.

    +1 if no lag, -1 if confirmed massive lag occurs

    You guys wanna know something? The server lags at the very start of harpoon wars nearly every single time because of everyone throwing their harpoons at one and then spamming with them some more. No one complains about it? If the gernades don't get spammed then it should be fine.

    Plus one sounds fun. (It rhymes)

  10. This server actually handles ddos very VERY well compared to others. Usually servers go down in a second, while this one is usually just laggy. And this idea of grenade wars isn't even close to as bad as a ddos.

    -1 for me if this causes Massive Lag spikes +1 if it doesent. I love the idea though throwing grenades, people exploding, BOOM, fun.

    I have seen 10+ C4s placed in a single spot on a map and exploding at nearly the same time.
    If that doesn't crash the server, this won't. +1

  14. After grenade use, reload time should be like 3 seconds, not 10. But yeah, this sounds great!

    I don't think 10 C4s can amount to 30+ people throwing grenades one after another.... multiple times.

  16. C4's have a large radius and after-explosions, I doubt a few frags would crash a whole server. Even then, no one knows because only Highwon knows the capability of the servers

    @Event Horizon even has proof that 17 c4s wont wreck the server

    Given Espurr's post of 17 C4s just hardly lagging the server, I doubt people all around the map throwing grenades will do much
    As far as theories go, that's mine. You can continue to argue about what it will do to the server but until someone tests this, words don't matter

    Either way, the 50/50 on this suggestion leads me to believe this won't be added

    The thing is, those are going one after another, but with 30+ people playing, chances are many are gonna go off at the same time.

    Agree, someone needs to test this so we can have a good look at what might happen.
