    I think it's time to switch it up some, so many of our events still focus on players shooting props. But what if we want to kill real people?! Well, not REAL people, fake real people. You know what I mean. So to satisfy that urge, we should really think about this Assassins event.
    Build round changes:
    • All players are notified that there are secret assassins hidden among the current players.
    • Random players are selected to be the assassins similar to how they are selected for the Juggernaut event. Even single players in a team can be selected. These players are notified, in some way that is very noticeable, that they are an assassin with instructions on what they can do. First and foremost being that he should keep this information to himself. Assassins will have some sort of identifier so that they can see who the other assassins are.
    • The assassin will build a boat like a normal player and attempt to keep his identity hidden.
    • The rest of the players build boats like normal
    Battle round changes:
    • The goal for the assassins is to kill all of the other normal players. The assassins can shoot and kill players as well as destroy props.
    • Normal players still have to fight each other, however they can temporarily truce to take down the assassins once they are discovered. If no other assassins are alive, players must still fight each other like normal.
    • Assassins do twice the prop damage, but half the normal player damage. Grenades, rockets, or any other explosions will not cause player damage. Bug bait and sledgehammer will cause normal damage.
    • Assassins do not take weapon damage from normal players aside from weapons that would normally do player damage. Assassins take twice the normal water, bug bait, and sledgehammer damage.
    • Assassins can choose to kill their teammates and other assassins, thus giving a sense of "trust no one".
    • Assassins have access to the gravity gun. Single floating props can be picked up by the gravity gun and used as weapons or armor.
    • Assassins will get $250 per normal kill, $500 per teammate kill, $1000 per assassin kill.
    Achievements:
    • Effective Killer: Kill 50 players as an assassin.
    • Contract Killer: Kill 100 players as an assassin.
    • True Assassin: Kill 250 players as an assassin.
    • Betrayal At It's Finest: Kill your entire team consisting of at least 3 total players.
    • Best of the West: Kill another assassin using the Magnum.
    • Beast of the East: Kill another assassin using the Sledgehammer.

    Sounds cool. Needs testing though, I think its too complicated for the random non-english speakers. For example the russians will just not get it.

    That's an issue with everything we have, anyone that doesn't know English will have problems with a lot of our stuff, not just one event. and yes we always test these things anyway.

    Temporary trucing will screw people up and open an opportunity for more rule breakers.

    I'm not saying trucing would be included in the instructions for the event, but players would be smart if they killed the assassins first.

    Eh. I'm not really on board with the idea of permitting/ encouraging trucing for just one event. Trucing would risk being further perpetuated into other rounds.

    The event sounds like it would play out as being a very frustrating one, too, on account of the rule complexities and general scheme.

    Things like Team and Juggernaut events are easy to understand. No need for english for those things.
