    Lost Pres when SM joins

    This was brought up in the server earlier and I am posting it here for discussion.

    Should a SM get the Pres of a kicked player when joining a full server? I was thinking the NS1 server was configured that way and Wyzcrak confirmed it. It seems like a fair move for the team to keep the Pres from that player slot during the existing game.

    Ferris mentioned that the giveres command was nice too, so that could be up for debate, but personally I would think since resources for kill was removed from NS2 for balance reasons, that acquiring res should only be done via official methods. I imagine it would also be overkill for the joining person to spawn into a higher lifeform or with equipment, but in complete fairness (and extreme circumstances) , it would be harsh for a team to lose an onos or exo.

    Re: Lost Pres when SM joins

    Just to keep things focused here, let's not discuss in this thread any "giveres"/etc ideas.

    Rather, focus on the opinions/ideas around the personal res of the reserved slot victim being assigned to the incoming player.

    Re: Lost Pres when SM joins

    IIRC if a player disconnects and rejoins, they get their res back as part of the game to avoid network issues that cause disconnects. Ignore the rest if that is incorrect.

    If the player is kicked and rejoins, would they no longer get this res back?

    Just because everyone does something does not mean that it is right to do.

    Yes, within a certain time limit.

    Re: Lost Pres when SM joins

    I have had my game crash and when I rejoined a new game on the same map started. When I went the same team I had enough to go fade from the start. Scared the crap out of the rines. Don't know if I would do it again.
