Well from what I witnessed OFP was never a very popular MP game. I myself only play it with a couple friends and the bugs in MP trouble us almost every time. The games MP support is really lacking. However, when ArmA comes out its very likely the MP will be much improved. So its safe to say a lot more people will be playing the mp in ArmA as opposed to OFPs. With this, you have a much better chance of getting people who are not as mature, and only care about the fact that their team won and things like that.Originally Posted by (ZiiiP @ Jan. 07 2006,19:37)
There seems to be this assumption by many people that the OFP community is extreamly mature, and things like this are very un-common. And perhaps thats true right now because the only remaining community for flashpoint is true, dedicated fans and mod makers, but when ArmA comes out expect that to change. ArmA is going to bring in a whole new crowd of players. OFP/ArmA is nothing more then a game, and there is no rule that states its players have to be mature.
And these things happen in almost every FPS, and very few of them actually keep stats. Happens in COD all the time and there is no stats kept in that. (Unless your on a server with a mod to keep stats). People just like to be on the winning team.
As for solutions to this... either play with people you know, or the server admin should be able to remove players who do such things. Or perhaps there will be an auto balance feature that prevents an unballanced game, or if not... Im sure someone can probly mod it.
