I don't think teamkilling should be taken away. It would make the game confusing. If you're watching the radar, and you get hit by a bullet, you think u'd blow up, but if you dont you go, "wth??"

i agree with sir lance a lot, ppl would just fire a bunch of bullets, w/out worrying about tking and the whole game would go to hell.

I agree that, while I HATE getting killed by my teammates, it's an essential part of the game.

But, this is a good time to spout off on what I think would be a really cool flag: No Team Kill (or something like that). For however long you carry it, your bullets don't kill teammates.

As NightCrawler said, it is all a matter of fair play and precision...(to do not kill your teammates) :D

i think this is a terrible idea cuz then you wouldnt be able to jump and avaid a teammates bullets that you are able to avoid

you could still see the bullet. and why does it matter who shot it, will it not still kill you?
Games don't make people violent, lag does.

But if you see a blue bullet go past you, and you are blue, you know your not getting attacked by an enemy. But if you're on a different team, you will know to be careful.
Thus I think that the colored bullets need to stay!

I never make stupid mistakes. Only very, very clever ones.
It is not the fall that kills you. It's the sudden stop at the end.
Always remember you are unique. Just like everybody else.

also added to that fact....you say you wouldnt know if a teammate is fireing at you. you would be able to tell b/c if all of the players that were close to you were on ur team then it is most likely friendly fire. but idk. sry to argue
