Fortress: Grind position-2 on center leave

Post by sinewav »

Some Fortress players think it is obvious to grind the 2nd player if your center leaves the game at the start of a round. Others have never heard of this "rule." Now is your chance to learn about and discuss it.

Ahh that's why some always don't grind...good to know. But i dunno why pos 2 "must " grind. I think it depends on the position of the defender.Because of the blocking.

Well, of course there are cases where this is a bad idea. However, if the center player leaves suddenly and a decision needs to be made quickly, this works very well (in games I've seen, at least).

Yep, exactly. I tked/I was tked by some peoples several times because both me and position 2/3 didn't know if they should grind or not, cause they could teamkill someone. And exactly the I-don't-want-to-tk-so-you-please-grind acting results the tking. Irony. I like how more and more Rules exist.

Hmm. More Rules may cause more drama. But that's offtopic.

Yes, it's the most logical solution. Pos 1 leaves, so Pos 2 takes over center role.


Seems to me that most people know about this, but it's good to have it on the forums.

Very logical.

2 does come after 1 :)

I have seen this happen in game before. Was impressed to see people not panic and just grind pos 2. But of course i have seen the negative side where pos 2 isnt aware and ends up tking the whole left side lol.
