    Teaming in minerware is allowed, and even tho it's understandable because theres no team version of that game, it gets really annoying in boss games since after everyone else dies, you get 2 or 3 people teaming and you have to wait 2 minutes there waiting for the game to end, and if you leave before the game ends you won't get the win , so I think teaming, at least in boss games, should be banned.

    I agree with banning teaming in boss battles only.
    In the rest of the microgames it’s honestly very hard to somehow cooperate with another person, and even if so, a single point isn’t as important. Also, microgames are way too fast and it would be tedious to try and get evidence of teaming.
    Another reason to not ban teaming in microgames is simply because of fun, there’s only like 2-3 microgames you can ever team in. And it’s always fun to play together with friends.

    Let me just.. give you an example.. of what will happen

    Spleef / Lucky Block PvP or TNT Run:
    *two players are left alive*
    *they shoot at each other / they destroy blocks near the other / run after each other*
    *purposely miss so they both stay alive*
    *timer ends*
    *they both live*
    *there isn't any valid evidence of them teaming because they make it look like they're fighting*

    Basically: no. It's so easy make sure it looks like you're fighting.
    And as you said, there's no team mode. If you think waiting is annoying, go check the forums. But I don't have a problem with this.

    I will have to agree with you on this one, I have personally experienced this issue and not only does it give you an unfair advantage, but it also really interrupts the gameplay if two - or more persons are teaming within boss battles. As for the other games, it's not quite a necessity as it's just fun playing with friends - and it doesn't really benefit you. On the other hand though, it's quite hard to tell whether people are teaming or not. Something to be debated!

    You say that like it's only possible in minerware, you can also do that in skywars, eggwars and every other game, just pretend to fight then run away like both are low on health. By your logic, banning teaming doesn't work anywhere.

    I have run into a group of tryhards countless times that ruin the game by targeting a few or all and boosting each other to take too 2 spots while other struggle. It’s completely unfair as the intention of the game is everyone for themselves and may the best win no lt may the best team win. I 100% support this thread, and banning teaming.

    I do see what the problem is here, I don’t play a lot of Minerware and when I do, I’m usually not in a game with those teamers, but the problem with this is that a lot of people will be confused: you can team up half of the game? Most people will not even know about this rule if it gets implemented.

    I’d rather go for a “no teaming allowed anywhere in Minerware” or “teaming allowed everywhere in Minerware”, nothing in between.

    (My opinion is to not prohibit teaming in Minerware at all, because like I mentioned, I didn’t come across any major teaming parties yet on Minerware.)

    I don't come across many big teams or small teams too, even though I think it's useless and confusing for players to only ban teaming in the boss games. So I think teaming as a whole should be banned on Minerware. Because the game will be fairer for solo players.

    There isn't a Team Mineware, so there is no place for friends to team with each other in Mineware. You say people teaming in MW is really annoying, people teaming in FFA is also really annoying, but that's still allowed. So why not make teaming in FFA a banable offense as well?
    If there's a Team Mineware,I'd be happy to change my vote to 'ban teaming.' (Obviously only for cross teaming and teaming in solo)
    But as long as there isn't a team Mineware, there's no reason to ban teaming because where else are you gonna play the game teaming with your friends?

    FFA works completely differently from minerware. In FFA, dying once doesn't really matter, while a minerware game takes about 7 minutes, only to get another 2 minutes wasted doing nothing and possibly even lose a win because of teaming. If you find a FFA team, you can just change maps, you can't just leave mid-game in minerware, just like you can't leave mid-game in skywars or eggwars. In FFA you can also call your friends to help you out, but you cant tell your friends to help you mid-game in minerware.

    Yep that game sucks, but just because there's an issue with a game, all other issues with that game have to be ignored.

    No no no no no, you said it was ''annoying''. Teaming in FFA is still annoying. It's easy to leave but it's still annoying ain't it?
    As long as there isn't a Team Mineware, teaming should be allowed.
    Teaming is Layer Spleef is also allowed, is that also gonna be banable?

    It's annoying but it doesn't affect the game nowhere near as much as minerware teaming. You can just leave the map and join another.

    This one affects gameplay, so i think they could ban that one too to prevent boosting, but still, if you die to a team, you can just join another game right away, in minerware you can't, makes it way less annoying.

    My point was that it was both annoying and affected gameplay in the way that you just can't leave and join another game, you're "forced" to play that game. It's the combination of both that makes minerware teaming different from the others in my opinion.

    IDK it could be good and bad, I'd rather it just stay as is I guess because I don't think it's really too bad rn.

    I do agree, and it may be easy to make it look like you were going against each other if you teamed during boss games, but having a rule in place would probably deter a lot of people from trying to do it in the first place (I don't team in that game mode but if I was and there was a new rule in place saying I wasn't allowed to anymore, I would honor that)
    I personally think that banning teaming in boss games is a good idea because it's outright unfair to other players who usually play solo.

    Valid point, it may be a bit confusing. A message somewhere before the game starts indicating how it works may be helpful though.
