  • Out of Bounds Rallies

    Can I get a clarification on intentionally setting rallies as far out of bounds as possible?

    I used to do it back in .5 but have stopped as I think its something of an exploit. Setting a rally out of bounds on a wooded map can make it near impossible to find since you can't search for it without risking death by desertion.

    I mentioned it to a few sqds when I saw out of bounds RPs the other night, but no one took heed.

    So where does everyone stand on that?

    Re: Out of Bounds Rallies

    I do it all the time, i'm not an admin but i like placing rallies in out of bounds areas. Nothing wrong with it as far as i can tell, read the SOP's and rules. Also don't worry, people do end up finding them whether they are in or out of bounds.

    Lets hope this doesn't spark a big micromanaging thread on why it shouldn't be allowed.

      From one of the admins: Placing rallies out of bounds is no problem. I'm not about to take on another administrative task by policing rally placement.

        I have no problem with rally placement in out-of-bounds areas. I don't do it much, if at all (I don't SL much) but I've been in plenty of squads with leaders who do. It's generally on maps like Hamyong, where there's not enough areas in the battlefield to place rallies.

          I think it's a great and sneaky way to avoid losing your rally point.

                Not to mention setting rally points in a tree...

                That's nice!

                  that might be an exploit, but i know with the latest version of PR when one sets it in mid air you can't spawn..so that might take care of setting it high up in a tree, but i have never tried nor ever seen it so don't quote me on it.

                    RE: In trees - haven't seen it in a while - may depend on how high?

                    OT: Depending on the map, going out of bounds can open some areas that are far enough from CPs to plant an RP where not many would look, for better or worse.

                      well..i can see i am in the minority, but i dont like it. i dont do it on the rare occasions i have SL, and in the only occasion my SL set one out of bounds i asked "is this leagal?" and he said he didn't know...we ended up moving it in-bounds.

                        On the boarder i don't mind, but people try to bury the rally so far that spawning there sometimes gets you killed.

                          I personally think it is lame-o. This tactic is mostly prominent in OGT. There is enough places to hide a rally without putting it out of bounds. Leaving the bounds in .7 makes you bleed really fast. Putting a rally a few meters out of bounds causes the user who goes to get a serious bleed, or death. It also prevents the other team to actively search for your rally because of the time limitations.

                            Eh, it's just a trick and not really a big deal. Most of the time the out of bounds rally is in plain sight since there's not a lot of time to set it before you get the out of bounds penalty. Keep in mind that you don't have to knife a rally, shooting it will take it down also so you don't have to go out of bounds to kill it.

                              I saw a rally in a tree yesterday on Mestia. I don't know if it allowed them to spawn though. I assume that since it was there, it was placed on purpose.

                              As far as out of bounds rallys, it seems somewhat unfair but I guess if everyone knows that it is possible to do it, then there is nothing really wrong with it.
