I wonder what impact it would have on a df server if the server atcually was able to substract points for pilot deaths? Better yet, if you have a blue vs red server, what impact would there be if the criteria for total victory was the sum total of all pilot points for a side BUT pilots could have points deducted for each death they have? Interesting. Currently, the only penalty a pilot really has is killing a friendly or flying recklessly on those servers where a pilot count is being tallied. It would be nice to see this option in a future patch or in the BOB releas in 2006. The goal of being top dog on a df based on points would be very risky if they had to worry about about points being deducted for each death they sustain.

I flew on a server a while ago,when you died three times you´re out of there. With that in mind I flew a bit cutbacked,but that didn´t help though http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Yup, the host can have players kicked after X number of deaths. Theoretically, this could be set to "1" for that Rainbow Six ambiance http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif It works essentially like a teamkill or ping kick. I forget the exact syntax for it off the top of my head, but I think the dedi server lists the command when you start up the server.

I guess it only kicks, so one *could* rejoin the server. I guess banning would be a tad harsh though http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
