    well, i thought we should add a few things to flood, if someone joins your team, they cannot touch your props but they can if you made a trust list so only specific people can touch your props as i have seen people on teams annoy their team-mates by throwing their boats around, sometimes their boats disappear because of this! i think this will make it harder for trolls,

    Thanks For Reading!

    The entire point of teams is that you should trust the person, if the person you're with is annoying you then you can just kick them from the team if you're a captain or you can leave yourself if you're not. We have however discussed the idea of having this for large team events such as the "Red vs Blue" team event of juggernaut.

    Yeah it's no problems when it's a self made team. It's the large events that are problems. I think that if people knew they need to work together, we would have less issues. That doesn't count the trolls that come on often though.

    I think each room should be claimed and add a 'buddy' list towards it on the door instead on the Q Menu, but only for Events such as: Juggernaut, Team Round, etc. like what Rick and Decap said basically.

    Not a bad idea. Maybe just have it so that there is a max of 3-4 people in each room during these modes then the door is "locked" until one of them leaves. This still doesn't take care of the original issue of people being dumb out in the main room.

    I'm also thinking possibly a 'KICK PLAYER' option, so whoever team member owns a door, and someone minges around, they can kick them from the room. Plain and simple.

    I think a custom buddy VGUI around the walls in the Main Room should solve it. (I think) It should block everyone's permission to touch their props except for their own buddy if chosen. Of course opposite teams are disclosed from the clientside list.

    EDIT: I'm doing this because players generally build their own boat but some show teamwork. And the one who build their own boats generally gets fucked over with.

    on team rounds I think that the option to unweld using the weld tool and pressing R Should be removed since it allows trolls to unweld teammates boats

    If a player is having trouble with a teammate then the leader can either kick them or they can find a new team. Team Round is a different story, and I agree it can be a chore to deal with during that event. I'll add a note to our tracker to remind us it needs looked at.

    Maybe have an option that pops up asking the player if they want to relinquish control of their props their team mates. By default it would be off, but the window that it pops up in could be on the bottom of the screen and wouldn't go away until they select an option.

    I've read everyone elses comments and there are a lot of valid points but let me add a few of mine even if they have been said already because this is a good subject.

    If you're having an issue with one of your teammates in game because they are doing something to your props. Simply kick that person. If you're not the team leader and don't have the ability to kick them then you probably shouldn't stay with that team. If someone is doing something you don't like to your props and they will not listen to your wishes. Then I'd say they are not good teammates. The definition of a teammates is a group of people who work together to achieve a goal easier than you could alone. Fighting is NOT teamwork.

    On the note of team round, juggernaut or similar rounds where you're force to work with people who are not being team friendly. There isn't much you can do unfortunately otherwise I would have recommended getting a private room but unfortunately Donkie and Bayrock made the decision to remove those so you're at a loss there. Though do note that if someone is messing with your props, it may could as "sabotage" which you can report here on the forums.

    Well, it's due to the fact that you're on a temporary team with the other players that private rooms don't work in those events. I'm sure we could devise something to help mitigate the minging during those round.

    When team round would happen. I would build my stuff in a private room because there was so much chaos in the lobby it wasn't worth my time to even attempt to help my team in some cases. The reasoning for this is, there is always some random guy who welds his boat to everyone elses. When one person doesn't realize that there are 5 boats welded together and tries to move his, all the others get squished into the wall causing a massive ball of glitching props which sometimes crash the server if not cleaned up promptly.

    The person may not intentionally rek your boat. But if you've welded it funny and he wants to put it in the water then it goes all spazzed out, you may want to add prop rights.

    No thats not the point. They weld shit just to be retarded and harm the server as well as gameplay.

    Im talking about in private teams if you weld a boat weirdly, a teammate may move it and you may not want them too and it can fuck up.
