    Hi Lime,

    Sorry about the delay. I watched the demo file -- twice for good measure. While there were significant display issues (i.e. invisible props, player/cosmetic models appearing as 'ERROR'), I couldn't confirm that trucing appeared ongoing at that time. Based on everyone's positioning in the map, it appeared that the users opposite to you were too far away to notice each other.

    Things like this can happen where users are strategically singled out (whether low on health, having fewer props, etc.), though it may not necessarily imply that outside-team cooperation is active. Sometimes users will lock onto and assault the first thing that strolls across their line of sight.

    With all things considered, we may have to decline based on the prior mentioned (i.e., lack of apparent trucing). Demos can be finicky at times and are somewhat outdated. For the future, I would recommend utilizing screen captures and/or other methods of video recording so that display issues intrinsic to demos can be bypassed. A frustrating experience I can wager, and to that we sincerely apologize. : [

    I will leave this request thread open to allow for further comment / input by other staff on the matter. We appreciate you having taking your time to file and submit this request -- others will be with you shortly.
