    The whole point of the game is to not get the bomb, gomba stomping others may take away the fun.
    What is y'alls thoughts?

    I love how people can get goomba'd on BR. It's funny as hell and IMO not toxic. I honestly think most forms of exploiting or working around the intended fun rounds mechanics are really fun and should be allowed (excluding door blocking or reaching un-killable areas in say Reapers or Hidden). For example, Barrel Bash and shooting through walls. Not intended design, but possible to do and funny af. If you can get goomba'd, I'd say it should be a viable strategy and apart of BR's gameplay meta.

    A sort of other way of thinking about it could be: a traitor goomba stomping you during a normal round wouldn't be toxic or rdm, but an innocent would be considered toxic/rdm bc there are strict team-based roles. A fun round is structured as a FFA and, again IMO, finding any way to creatively kill your opponents should be allowed. It's a fun round after all.

    Technically it is considered rdm,so you could be mrdmed ban if all the people cared.

    What I don't understand honestly is how you can rdm in a FFA gamemode.

    Goomba stomping a non teammate on fun round has never been a punishable offense, as the point of the fun round is to kill everyone with what you've got.

    The reason I'm asking for people's thoughts is, if u can gomba people. What's the point of the bomb then? It defeats the purpose of having "fun round: Bomb rush". It also doesn't effect the gomba'er because of the no fall damage code.

    This shouldn’t have happened.

    It’s considered a free for all. Do what you gotta do

    Like I said earlier, it adds to the meta. No free fall damage allows you to both evade easily and allows goomba to be a via strategy for once. I think this makes the gamemode more interesting and fun to play, not less.

    Also, it hurts to read that poll. If I think it's toxic, why would I also think it's a valid strat?

    The poll should be:

    Yes, player should be slain/warned
    No, this is a valid strat

    The goombas are eh.
    While Its not really RDM as its a fun round.
    The whole goombaing people, also defeats the purpose of the funround being a Hot Potato - Tag type of funround.
    Probably best thing to do as well as to make it fair to the people getting Goombaed by others that doesnt take fall damage, would be to make it so you wont be able to take damage from players Goombastomping you either.

    But I can also sense some people would not like that, as they seem to be big fans of Super Mario's Ground Pound.
