Interesting discussion. I kinda like this idea, getting the green light to retaliate under certain conditions, I can see it now... players chasing each other all over the map before the timer runs out lol.
What about this as an alternative/compromise?
A TK forgive system combined with your "traitor" / "trigger happy" tag possibly with appropriate icon change (char spraying wildly) for a time period. Team damage stats would appear on score board after meeting threshold so that victims can easily see whether their attacker has previous and make a more informed forgive/not forgive choice, as well as an incentive via embarrassing stat for the perpetrator to be more careful. This stat could also be used as the basis for a fairer vote kick and would only allow a vote kick to be initiated if the perpetrator met the minimum team damage.
Mine was terrible after update, the stuttering was on a whole new level so I tried clearing the config files which usually helps but not this time.
A reinstall was the only thing that put the game back to it's previous state.
I have had problems every time this game updates
Don't get me wrong, it's an interesting idea however IMHO the penalty needs to be a direct, easily understood experiential penalty rather than an abstract points penalty that someone may or may not care about.
I don't see that there can ever be a perfect solution and unlike many it seems, I don't have a problem generally with the current implementation, although I feel it could have further logic so as to recognise patterns of repetition or deliberate disregard rather than just mistakes.
I would also be concerned about adding too much more maybe complex logic processing, possibly client side in a game that already has performance issues.
3 friends join a coop server
2nd last obj friend 2 kills friend 1, friend 1 gets all his points.
Last obj friend 3 kills friend 1, friend 1 gets all his points.
Friend 1 now has 3x as many points as would normally get.
OK they say, that was a nice little earner, let's do that all over again...
Troll joins a server starts shooting team mates randomly in the legs, some get really pissed and retaliate, kill Troll, Troll gets his points. Troll thinks great that is a nice little earner, I'll do that again and again and again...
Troll joins server, jumps into every team thrown moly or incendiary, gets points...
Remove all the contents of your app data folder found in...
You will need to re-configure video settings again. It will keep your bindings and mouse sens settings though.
Did you try the steam forum help section, deleting the config files?
My FPS tanked after the update, from 140+ to 100+ with huge stuttering, and deleting the config files put my FPS back up and made the game much smoother.
Not sure why along with the update the devs do not delete or update these files if they cause so much of an issue.
