I only use seer on a map with lots of cloaking and stealth. If those two flags aren't that popular, then I drop it too

there is no possible way to notify anyone if they have ST, unless your modifying the source code. The ONLY way, without mods, is to physically see the ST tank, or its shot's

there are other ways, like memory, and common sense but you gotta learn those yourself ;), Useless has no use, and PZ has very limited use.

They can check if they have Seer.

i like it when 2 teammates try to kill me at opposite sides and shoot each other and if one has genocide it's really funny :D
but for shooting it sux alot! :twisted:

for exploring maps it is also not that good. you can only explore things in your jumping range cause you cant jump on top of things with pz. you could only see first floor things making it almost usless at exploring.

I've used phantom zone to help me capture the flag before. I teleported to the phantom zone, drove right up to the opponents base unable to be shot, and teleported back to normal through a teleporter near them. Then I quickly dropped the PZ flag, grabbed the enemy flag, and went for the teleporter again to get out of reach and take the flag home.

So it can be useful for capturing flags, and also for decoys if you are really working as a team, but I do wonder for what purpose it was put in to the game. It doesn't seem to have any obvious benefit.

Colorblindness always throws me off when I'm on a map with lots of my teammates. I just kind of sit there and don't do anything for fear of teamkilling. However, if I'm on a map with very few or no teammates, then I'll just shoot anyone nearby (I usually glance at the radar when picking up a flag, so I usually know which is which anyway)
